Welcome to Rainbow View Cabin, less than an hour from the DC beltway in the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA with magnificent views overlooking the Shenandoah Valley! Enjoy remote solitude just 9 miles from the historic village of Front Royal. Get away to another world of stress-free country living.

(And at an elevation of 1,738 feet it's always 10-15 degrees cooler than the city!).

<em>(If Rainbow View is booked or you need a 3BR, please see our other cabin - Valley Vista, listing 906064.)</em>

There are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a fully equipped kitchen (including icemaker, coffee maker & grinder, microwave, crock-pot, etc.), a washer/dryer, and fireplace*. Linens, towels and soap are providedǂ. All you need to bring is your food and clothes.

On the large deck, enjoy the hot tub and fire cauldron (wood supplied) with tables and chairs, and both gas and charcoal grills. (Charcoal is not supplied, but is usually left behind by previous guests.)

Convenient to local wineries, caverns, Shenandoah River and Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive.

We are a hands-on operation, living only 1/4 mile away, so your experience here will feel a bit more personal than at a typical vacation rental. We enjoy providing our guests with a special experience and hope that you'll appreciate the idyllic setting and all the little extras offered.

Self check-in time: anytime after 4 PM / Check-out time: anytime before 11 AM

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:

The last mile of road is gravel. Check our website for a video.

We welcome well behaved dogs. There is a $30 pet fee. If the pet fee is not prepaid at booking, it will be deducted from your security deposit refund. Be advised that there is a county-wide leash law.

We welcome well behaved children.

You should note however that the environment is not particularly conducive to small children's enjoyment. There's no lawned yard to play in, the terrain is very steep and rocky, and the woods has poison ivy and snakes. Inside and on the deck we have not addressed any child safety issues as we have no experience in that regard and it's not been our focus clientele. There is no community playground, and the youngest kids in the neighborhood are of junior high age. The community lakes have no beaches, lifeguards, or restrooms. The closest playground is about 12 miles from the cabin in Front Royal .

Motorcycles are welcome, but even though neighbors on the road have them, every guest who has brought one has complained about the road, so just be advised.

In winter 4WD or AWD may be required. The County is diligent in plowing, but roads can remain icy long after a storm. VRBO offers trip insurance. Enterprise in Front Royal has RAV4s for $70/day. In the event the road is impassible even for 4WD, rescheduling is allowed for available dates of equal value. (We live on the same road so we can keep you advised of current conditions.)

ATVs, discharging firearms, outdoor fires before 4 PM, and disturbing noise after 10 PM are prohibited by various ordinances and covenants.

* Fireplace is for ambiance only. Continual use will cause bedrooms to become cold. It is for burning Duraflame-type logs only, and only one at a time. During cold weather, one log (a 3 hour burn) is furnished for each day of your stay. For a longer burn than that you should bring your own.

(Due to past issues, burning regular wood is allowed only in the cauldron on the deck. Filling the cabin with smoke may result in your security deposit being withheld.)

ǂThere is no extra charge for the number of guests (max 4), but we supply the cabin for your visit based on the number you tell us will be coming.

We do offer a 10% discount to active duty military and retirees. Please advise us at the time of your request and please be honest about your status. We have had issues in the past.

Please access and like our Facebook page - Rainbow View Cabin - as that is where we post info about local restaurants specials, events, info about Shenandoah Park and any discounts we are offering on the cabin.

About Steve & Chris

We live just down the road a piece.

Steve & Chris purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Steve & Chris chose Shenandoah Valley

We've lived in this little rural mountain community for 30 years, and we've long admired the view from this particular property, so when the opportunity arose to acquire it, we jumped at the chance!

What makes this cabin unique

From the world's largest concentration of wild trillium to the abundant wildlife, whether sledding the hills, or just whiling away a lazy afternoon at the winery, we always enjoy each and every day on this mountain. Now you can also enjoy the view from the expanded deck and the hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for all the thoughtful things you had that we forgot and everything you had ready for the stay. Beautiful, awesome view, home décor, hot tub. Just perfect home away from home.

Amazing sunsets, awesome deck, perfect weekend getaway house.

  • 5 of 5

Rainbow View's owners could not have been better hosts. Even though I was offline for most of the weekend, they sent an email to make sure we got into the house okay and to give us some tips of things to do around the area - which we appreciated! There were helpful, and at times hilarious, notes around the home to answer essentially any question a guest would have. The house itself was extremely well kept and had great amenities including the cleanest, nicest hot tub I've ever seen and a great gas grill and smoker. Our only regret was not being able to start a fire and take advantage of their smores tools. We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being our guests and for being so respectful of the house and property. Yes, the storms put a damper on things. We look forward to your next visit and maybe you can canoe/kayak/tube the Shenandoah- great fun.

The hosts thought of and provided everything you could possibly need.

  • 5 of 5

Rainbow view has set the bar for mental relaxation. It was amazing to have so many things labeled and provided. Many rentals will provide only barebones supplies so you have to bring sheets, towels, bug spray, firewood, a compass and astrological chart to get there, coffee filters, and all other random things you don't really think about needing and would have to buy in town. All of that and more was provided along with witty notes throughout the house that made us chuckle.

We highly recommend Rainbow View.

You guys thought of everything. We can't think of a single thing you need to add.

The fresh eggs were awesome. Couldn't eat a dozen in two days so we had to take the carton. We left extra money for the carton. What a pleasant stay we had !

Owner's Response: Thank you being our guests and we are so glad that you loved the cabin and the eggs. The eggs are much better than what the grocery sells. We hope that you come back soon for another stay.
