About Massanutten Vacation- Katrina, Laresa and Kathy

We are a family of five and we like to vacation with friends. Our teenage children enjoy walking with their friends to the go carts, putt putt, ski lodge, and hiking trails.

Massanutten Vacation- Katrina, Laresa and Kathy purchased this house in 2012

Why Massanutten Vacation- Katrina, Laresa and Kathy chose Shenandoah Valley

We choose this property because of its location in 'The Kettle', the five bedrooms, and the two living areas which give the children their own area to enjoy. The house also works great for multiply couples as it has one king, three queens, and 3 sets of bunk beds. We chose Massanutten because of the friendly people, skiing, indoor water park, tubing, golf, hiking, caverns & wineries.

What makes this house unique

We love to be in 'vacation mode' and have added as many fun activities to enjoy by all to the house. One group can enjoy bumper pool, while others are playing foozball and still another can be in the hot tub or enjoying s'mores at the firepit. Three flat screen TVs allow video games, and two movies to play concurrently. We want everyone to make great family memories at Rainier Lodge!

Great family time

  • 5 of 5

Booking our vacation weekend was smooth and easy. This house is much larger on the inside then it looks, very spacious for multiple family's to enjoy the stay. The fooz ball game needs fixing but the kids still played it. We appreciated the wifi access and hot tub. Great location to the lodge for skiing and tubing. Although the driveway a bit steep, we had plenty of space to park 4 cars on the road safely. A maintenance person cleared our driveway and front porch and laid salt down each without having to contact anyone. Was a great stay !!!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

I had booked this property for a weekend getaway with friends. It offered a great mix of bedrooms for singles and couples, a hot tub (very important for some of us!), and an open living room that appeared great for socializing.

I was a bit worried based on previous reviews but emailed with the company and they assured me that as long as I read and adhered to the contract, there would be no problem. We were extremely careful to follow the directions and leave everything as we found it, and we got the full deposit back.

This property was well-received by my friends and I got many compliments on the choice. The management company was responsive and pleasant to work with. Hope to stay here again.

Bad Experience

  • 1 of 5

The house was dated. Some rooms didn't even have a TV. I had a nice time at Massanutten, but the house could have been a lot better. They make you check-in after 3pm. For what! It had not been cleaned in weeks. The house had a stagnant feel when we opened the door. Mold was in a couple of the bathrooms. The hot tub smelled like mildew. I wasn't told that we didn't have access to the indoor facilities. Other than that we had a good time at the resort. I should have received my cleaning fee back. I complained to the rental company and they was supposed to get back to me about my complaint, but didn't! Still waiting for cleaning fee return.....Almost forgot! Don't go in the winter!!!! That driveway (Very Steep Hill) to the property is treacherous!!!!!

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful!!! We went skiing and had a blast. Very close to the slopes. You can see the slopes at night with the lights off the deck. The hot tub was an added bonus. Clean, spacious and all around perfect! Would highly recommend this house to anyone and everyone!

Bi-Annual Group Vacation

  • 3 of 5

As friends/family from MI, OH, MA, AL...we rented this home for 7 days over the week preceding the 4th of July. We had a mixed group, 4 small children, 8 adults in 20s and 30s, married and non-married. The home was the perfect size for us, everyone had a bed. The last vacation we had was a OBX and the house was HUGE so this place felt small, for sure, but it was cozy and we felt like we saw each other more this time around!

The home was okay, nothing spectacular. We loved the fire pit and the location of the house. The main reason we rented this particular home was because the home description mislead us into thinking that we had free access to the pool at the resort via our home rental cost. This is not the case. Our kids were VERY disappointed! :( FYI: You have to pay ~$5 per person/per day to use the pool that is just down the street from this home!

We loved how close we were to Shenandoah National Park, you can pay $20 for a sticker that lets you in for the whole week. We were also very close to Horton Vineyards which makes our favorite Cranberry wine. We went out to eat in Harrisonburg, which is a neat little town. There is also a swimming pool there that has slides and a rock wall and it was VERY cheap to get in and had nice places for a picnic and disc golf.

We had some issues with the home, called maintenance but did he did not return our call or show up to fix our issues. The house manager,however, always returned our calls and answered questions in a timely manner. We were frustrated because they did not return part of our deposit due to their word against ours: "did not take trash out" (we did) and "cleaners took 2 extra hours to clean the house" (??) and "stained sheets" (??). We vacuumed, swept, straightened up, and even washed out the fridge, plus all that was listed in the book for check-out!

My advice is to make a note of ANYTHING and everything in this home on the first day, take pics and write an email to the house manager so that you can hopefully get your full deposit back. Don't leave any stone unturned...or you'll end up like us!

All in all, we had a good time. Loved the hiking. The area is picturesque! This house is definitely expensive for no free access to anything in the resort. It's just a house that happens to be inside a resort area. We will definitely not be back. OBX or Sevierville, TN are better locations for people who need to stretch a dollar!

Happy vacationing!
