This classic cabin is on a beautiful wooded lot overlooking a creek and the upper mountain golf course, close to everything, and with winter views of the slopes. The location within the resort is ideal.

The cabin is a great space for two families, small groups, and kids of all ages.

The cabin features three levels of living space, four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a well-appointed kitchen, a rec room with 42' flat screen, a playroom for the kids, a flat driveway (a luxury around here in the winter), and a large wrap-around deck.

The main level has an open floor plan, spacious great room, vaulted ceilings, exposed wood beams, and plenty of windows with mountain views from everywhere. It's a classic A-frame style decked out with modern furniture and fixtures, a 42-inch flat-screen TV, Roku (Netflix streaming included). The great room opens to the kitchen, which includes stainless steel appliances and a large granite island w/ 3-seat bar. The main level also includes two bedrooms (queen and 2-twin), and a full bathroom.

The upper-level loft is a comfortable and private third bedroom (master/king) and full bathroom.

The finished lower level includes a small bedroom with beautiful custom built-in twin bunk beds, a spacious rec/family room with a futon (double bed equivalent), club chairs, a 42-inch flat-screen TV, Roku (Netflix streaming included), a foosball table, a full bathroom, and a playroom. Read our reviews. The kids love this space!

- For the kids -

Every vacation home has a few board games and a deck of cards (this home is no exception), but we know how excited our own kids are when they find something new... so our playroom is stocked with blocks, dinosaurs, cars, puzzles, books... etc. So there is plenty to keep even the little ones entertained on a rainy day. We also have an assortment of gear (pack and play, foot stools, booster seat, etc.) to lighten your load and make your stay more comfortable. Please ask if you have questions about the availability of any specific items.

- Amenities -

We designed and furnished this cabin with our own family in mind. We love the outdoors and open spaces, and we love the look (from the outside) of a classic rustic cabin. Inside, we like modern decor and amenities! We offer high speed wireless internet access, two flat-screens TVs with Roku (Netflix streaming included), and a fully stocked kitchen for all your culinary needs.

- Things to do -

We're located near the top of the Massanutten Resort, not more than five minutes from all resort activities including the ski slope, indoor/outdoor water park, year-round tubing, two golf courses, go-karts, mini-golf, ice skating (seasonal), horseback riding, fishing ponds, playgrounds, and fantastic hiking. We have also purchased summer passes to the mountain-top outdoor pool for all of our guests. And of course, you can venture outside the resort to the nearby Shenandoah National Park, Shenandoah River, Luray Caverns, local wineries, lavender farm... etc. Options for outdoor entertainment in The Valley are endless, and we will provide you with LOTS of good recommendations to make sure that you get the most out of your vacation.

- We make it easy -

We always provide our guests with linens and towels, dish soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, and other cleaners. We also provide starter sets of paper products like paper towels and toilet paper. Although we don't inventory other items, some essentials often stay stocked such as assorted spices, cooking oil, sweeteners… etc.

We hope that you enjoy your stay at Massanutten!

About Matt Carrier

We met at James Madison and live in Northern Virginia with our three children. We volunteer at school, church, and with youth sports. We spend as little time as possible waiting in Tyson's Corner traffic. We started coming back to the valley a few years ago and found Massanutten to be the perfect weekend vacation spot for our family. This was something that I definitely did not anticipate as a ski instructor here in 1999. We were very excited to purchase this home in the Summer of 2012, and have had fun preparing a great space to share with our friends and our guests.

Matt Carrier purchased this Cabin in 2012

Why Matt Carrier chose Massanutten

We love the activities that Massanutten Resort provides. We really like the look and feel of this home, the layout is great for our family and friends, and the location in the resort is perfect!

What makes this Cabin unique

The views, large flat driveway, and our playroom equipped with enough goodies for our youngest guests.

                                                                Fantastic Stay!

                                                                We just returned from our vacation at the "Massanutten for Kids" barn and it was awesome! The kitchen was very well stocked (minus a cheese grater) and the house was comfortable for our three adults and two small children. Our little ones had a blast playing downstairs and it was so nice NOT to have to bring with us a booster seat, a pac n play as well as books/toys. The only two very minor negatives were the towels on arrival smelled musty (we had to wash prior to using them) and the bathrooms could benefit from bathroom floor rugs when you step out of the shower. Overall, it was a memorable vacation and we hope to return to "Massanutten for Kids" barn next year!

                                                                we had a great time.

                                                                We stayed here with our daughter, soninlaw and granddaughter. Other family stayed nearby. The house was great- the playroom even better. The kids are all under 8 and had fun. Matt was easy to work with and worked with us on our quest to find 2 houses close by. Well stocked with basics. Nice deck. Comfortable and clean!

                                                                Great family home. Close to everything. Great for kids.
