Luray Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

The best log cabin in Jewell Hollow, Luray Virginia and yes it is ADA compliant! Located near the peak of the Shenandoah Mountains/Skyline Drive, “A Buck’s Peak” is a quiet hide-away that accommodates peace and tranquility to help you and your family relax and “re-charge” the batteries. Four master bedrooms – 3 king beds and 1 queen, “A Buck’s Peak” sleeps 10 (with built in bunk beds) and brags the best views on the mountain. One jet-soaking tub in the upstairs master bedroom and the queen bedroom has an ADA compliant bathroom and shower. Both basement bedrooms have full baths! Hot tub (8-person, 120 jets), 55-inch Sony television with DIRECTV, stainless steel appliances, DVD with DVD library, screened-in porch, jet bathtubs upstairs, and a game room complete with a shuffleboard table, dart board and a Sony Play Station 1 (with games) are just some of the amenities that will ensure you and your family enjoy your stay. We have a super large fire-pit and wood is provided. Additionally, we have two grills; one charcoal and one propane gas (propane is provided; charcoal is not). Kitchen has granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with all the pots, pans and plates to cook your meal and enjoy it! Sure, you can do your laundry at the cabin - full washer and dryer units are located next to the game rooms. Wi-fi/internet is NOT available; some guests use a cellular device with personally-owned hotspot - dependent on your cellular carrier. Verizon seems to be best. Pets are certainly welcome and we have a fenced in pet run for exercise. Please do not leave your pet in the pen if you leave the area; pets are confined to that space and other wildlife are interested. Additionally, if you leave your pet alone in the cabin, you must put the pet in a crate; crates are not provided i.e. you must bring your own. Pet fee is $40 for one pet, $80 for two pets or more. Gravel road takes you up the mountain to this quiet hide-away. Four-wheel-drive highly recommended between October and April; front wheel drive the rest of the year is recommended. Wounded Warriors should ask about a special discount. Discounts are offered to either military (retired, active, Reservists) or teachers – ask for your discount up front to figure pricing; please do not expect more than one discount - either military or educator (both are equal). Also, please do not request discount after first communication - tell me up front you are military or an educator; thanks. Have a wonderful stay and please leave feedback at VRBO Listing #438245 to help us make “A Buck’s Peak” the best Luray cabin. Book today.

Carl S. Ey purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Carl S. Ey chose Shenandoah Valley

A Buck's Peak resides in the Cabin Capital of Virginia. It is a brand new log cabin in the middle of nowhere but close enough to enjoy the fun stuff like Luray Caverns, Arrowhead Lake (3 miles away), canoeing and rafting on the Shenandoah River, zip-lining, wine-tasting, hiking (yes, you can hike right outside the cabin up to Skyline Drive), antiquing, all types of biking, great restaurants and nature enjoyment. This cabin will take your breath away with all of the accommodations from a super hot tub to a fully equipped kitchen to a large screen t.v. and incredible game room.

What makes this cabin unique

This is one of a VERY few ADA compliant log cabins in the Virginia's Cabin Capital, Luray, Virginia! Additionally, you can tell people you stayed in 'the holler!' A Buck's Peak is located in what Luray citizens refer to as Jewell Hollow or 'the holler.' We offer either a military discount or an educator discount (not both). Please tell me up front that you are an educator or an active/retired/reservist/former military member. This cabin is quiet and private - all of your distractions are removed; no internet option, cell service is practically non-existent as you are enjoying the middle of nature!

A nice weekend in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We went here on the occasion of my wife's birthday along with two other families. Carl was prompt in his replies and organization; directions were detailed and clear; the property was in great condition, essentially just as advertised; the hot tub large, hot and immaculate; and the view expansive. The Geminids meteor shower happened to be occurring while we were there and the deck a great spot to watch them arc across the sky. Hiking up to Mary's Rock from near the park entrance was also a highlight. We hope to return at some future date.

Very Nice property road could use some improvm,ent.

  • 5 of 5

the property description was accurate as described ,when we arrived it was clean and well maintained with a few minor discrepancies, which were promptly taken care of by Pete your maintenance man and yes i would and did recommend it to my friends and relatives. We ate most of our dinner meals at the cabin lunches we ate out because we were usually on the go and always found plenty to do, the caverns, sky line drive , battlefields and museums, and a picnic and a hike at lake arrowhead. and the girls found lots of places to shop.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Fred. I appreciate all of your remarks, compliments. Additionally, we take your constructive criticism to heart. The good news is that we are paving the driveway. This winter, guests will have a smoother driveway and easier access to all of our cabins. Thanks for visiting; we would love to have Fred and his family again!

The good and the bad

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was lovely and pretty much as advertised. One of the king-size beds downstairs is apparently a foam mattress and difficult to sleep on and impossible to keep sheets on. The kitchen is well-stocked and the view is wonderful. There is the construction of another house next-door which puts a lot of mud on the road and can cause difficulty driving and make walking impossible in that section if it rains. The workmen were very nice and moved the large rocks off the road each time we came and went. Possibly because of the recent rains the road is very difficult unless you have a car with fairly high clearance. Finally, if you're coming from Washington DC be aware that the directions are on the website are incorrect. You should take exit 43A, not 43B, from 66. Also what is described as an intersection off of Jewel Hollow access is actually just the first left turn. This is difficult to notice if you're looking for an actual intersection. The Jewel Hollow access road and the beginning of Jewel Hollow Road are both in good shape even though they are dirt roads. The difficulties with the road come as you are climbing up to the cabin.

The best time.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a perfect place to get away and relax or to have a lot of fun, your choice. Beautifully decorated, clean, and it had everything you could possibly need to live comfortably. The view from the deck was amazing and the hot tub there was very relaxing ( just what I needed ). I'm looking forward to my next vacation there.

Awesome Views

  • 5 of 5

This was a very enjoyable experience for my entire family. Everything about this property is as written within the description and the view of the mountain is breath taking. We had 5 adults and 3 children and we all enjoyed our time in the cabin and the surrounding areas. I would definitely rent this cabin again and recommend to all my family and friends. The maintenance man showed up the first day to ensure everything was in proper working order and to answer any questions that we had about how to operate anything on the property and had very helpful suggestions of things to do and where to go for items that peaked our interest. This property provided all of the comforts of home while still allowing the feeling of getting away from it all.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home and have a very relaxing week.

Right in the heart of the Shenandoah Mountain, A Buck's Peak is less than five miles off of the Skyline Drive. Biking, antiquing, wine tasting, zip-lining, Yogi Bear Park, Luray Caverns, whiskey tours, ATVing and the coolest movie theater on the East Coast are just a few of the attractions. Recommend you partake in Wine Tasting at both Gadino Cellars (Washington, VA) and Chester Gap cellars in Rhappahanock. Enjoy the antique shops in Washington, Virginia as well as Luray, Virginia. The Luray Movie Theater is a refurbished mansion that shows first-run movies. Finally, you can simply enjoy the 120 jet, 8-person hot tub on the log cabin's huge deck!
