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.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Walden is clean, neat and modern. The stretch of the Shenandoah, only a stones throw away, is peaceful and tranquil. It is perfect for quiet contemplation, a nice canoe ride, fishing, or wading.

Such a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

2nd time spending a short getaway here, and we'll be back for many more hopefully. The cabin is clean, tidy, and well appointed. The river just a short walk away. The hot tub is such a relaxing treat.

The location is great. Far enough to Luray, but not too far away.

Loved it.. definitely at happy place!
