Overview

About the property

Deluxe 1 Bedroom Cabin with Hot Tub and Shenandoah Riverfront

”It is the marriage of the soul with Nature that makes the intellect fruitful, and gives birth to imagination.” Henry David Thoreau

Welcome to Walden! A place that combines the beauty of the natural world with the warmth of a modern cabin. Located on 54 acres along the historic Shenandoah River, Walden offers one of the most spectacular retreats in the valley.

Completed in 2013, Walden is a deluxe one bedroom cabin that is timeless. Nature prevails through every window with the sweeping views of the land that surrounds you. From the moment you arrive the feeling is captivating. Walden offers a spacious living room with natural wood cathedral ceilings, a gas log fireplace, flat screen (satelite) TV, DVD, High Speed Wireless Internet, Stereo and a queen sleep sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped and for dining you have the option of eating inside, or just a step away, you can dine outside on an 8x12 screen porch. The bedroom has a queen bed, ceiling fan and 14 foot cathedral ceilings. Walk through the patio door on to the front porch and settle into a warm, relaxing hot tub.

A gradual walk through the field will take you to the river where you can relax under the shade of the sycamore trees, dip your feet into the Shenandoah or have a relaxing evening around a fire. (The riverfront is solely for the use of our guests at Walden and Sundance, {VRBO#385043} Although Walden and Sundance share the riverfront, the two cabins are completely private from one anther.)

Walden is a place where you can understand what Thoreau meant when he wrote, “Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself the influences of each”

About Derek Goebel

I designed Walden to bring conform with its environment and bring the outside world into the cabin. This cabin, along with Sundance (VRBO 385043) are both designed and built by Woodside Cabins.

Derek Goebel purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Derek Goebel chose Shenandoah Valley

Walden is a brand new cabin that was just finished in February 2013. This deluxe one bedroom cabin offers all the modern amenities set in a unique private setting on the Shenandoah River.

What makes this cabin unique

Walden is located on the historic Shenandoah River bordering 54 acres of beautiful open land. Wildlife abounds on the property. A mowed path takes you to the river where you will find a firepit, chairs and easy access to the water. Wade into the Shenandoah and cast a line for some of the best small mouth bass fishing on the east coast.

Phenomenal Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Walden for two days to celebrate my wife's birthday. It is a very clean, well appointed cabin that is perfect for couples. While it was too cold for using the fire pits at night, we did use the hot tub one evening and really enjoyed it. The location is only 7 miles from Luray giving you guick access to all the attractions. However, if the weather had been warmer we would have probably stayed on the grounds and enjoyed the river and exploring more of the property.

A little bit of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little cottage on a huge property. We enjoyed the fire pit down by the river. Nicest kitchen we've seen in the cabins we've stayed at! Highly recommend Walden.

Beautiful Home. Peaceful escape.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Walden, and it did not disappoint. The home is beautiful, clean and very well kept. We loved sitting by the campfire and very much enjoyed the hot tub. There is a beautiful trail from the cabin straight down to the river. We love that we can bring our dog with us; she enjoys herself almost as much as we do. We left feeling refreshed and relaxed, and we are already counting down the days until we can return. The owners are absolutely lovely to work with. If they ever wish to sell, we'd be the first ones making an offer!

Perfect Weekend Getaway!!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Walden. My fiance and I went for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary, and it was perfect! The cabin itself is beautiful and was very clean. We loved the hot-tub, and the gas fireplace. We enjoyed being able to have our dogs with us, and walking down along the riverside. We ventured into Luray for dinner and to see the Caverns, and enjoyed both of those as well. We look forward to visiting again in the warmer months!!

The perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend stayed the Walden and this place was amazing! It was perfect for two people looking for a relaxing getaway for a weekend. It was so clean and well taken care of. We didn't have any issues at all. Great modern appliances and entertainment for lounging around. It never got above freezing our entire stay but it didn't matter with the nice fireplace and hot tub to keep us warm. Anyone looking for the perfect quiet get away I would definitely recommend staying at the Walden! Make sure you use the directions that are give and you won't have any trouble finding the cabin
