Beach's Bottom is a secluded river front property. To reach the serenity of our property you will travel a scenic 6 mile gravel road through the George Washington National Forest, cross over Indian Grave Ridge, with views of the river, rock walls, cow pastures and mountains. At the house you will feel right at home, there are chairs for front and back porch sitting, a chimnea on the deck, a fire pit in the yard and down by the river. You can see and hear the river rolling by from the deck. Walk the slopping hill or drive down to the river via the access road. The property has rock ledges throughout. Wildlife galore! Watch the sun set behind the mountain. There is a picnic table, grill and fire ring on the river bank. Walk right down to the river and sit by the river's edge. The river bottom is good here, wade in a few feet, cross to the other side, walk down or up river to see the rock formations and tons of wildlife and of course take a swim, float in a tube, or put a chair right in the river. You can put the canoes or tubes in at river mile marker 19 which is only 1.6 miles from the house. The fishing is also good at the house with small mouth bass and catfish. The drive to the town of Luray is between 30 to 40 minutes, so take all you need!
If a summer shower or storm comes up we have plenty inside to keep the fun going with puzzle books, board games, PS2 with 33 games, card games, movies and TV series for all age. There are cookbooks, wildlife book, magazines and some novels. Relax in the 16x16 screened-in-porch and watch the rain pour down. Designed in a tropical theme, sit back on the 3 piece casual seating set or dine on the 5 pc dining set. Ferns, palm, bamboo and wicker decor to create a little bit of paradise in the country.
How about a little romance? Play some romantic music, throw a blanket on the deck, open a bottle of wine, serve some cheese and fruit and bask in each others warmth. The glow of the full moon will add to your romantic evening wrapped in love's embrace. How about going down to the river, throwing a blanket down, start a campfire, then lay back and wish upon a shooting star. You have never seen so many stars, all there to make your evening special.
Take a lazy walk down Page Valley Rd; spot deer, birds, ground hogs, turkeys, fox, raccoons, squirrels, turtles in the river and listen to the quiet. If you walk all the way to the end of the road, almost to Overall, maybe you will see the train travel over the trestle. You can also see the train from the river bank at Beachs Bottom. If you want; go to town and a romantic dinner, then return and just enjoy the evening by the campfire or sit on the deck and listen to the river roll by.

Why Lisa Williams chose Luray
When we first saw Beachs Bottom we thought it was adorable. We had spent many summer vacations in Luray but had never stayed at this particular house. We happened to be on vacation when we learned it was for sale. We fell in love with it's charm, coziness and of course the river views. We hope to be able to spend some time vacationing here, when it's available of course, and making new memories with our family.
What makes this Cabin unique
The river access from this property is phenomenal. The rocky beach is perfect to sit a chair on and relax by the river. Wade out and enjoy the water, it's not too deep. Fishing is wonderful. Sit on the deck and enjoy the evening stars. During the day you might even see deer or turkeys in the back yard. On chilly winter evenings, enjoy the wood burning fireplace.

Homey, Relaxing & has everything!
We loved our little vacation here! The house had everything we needed and even things we forgot (like soap!). This rental has more kitchen equipment than any rental we’ve ever stayed in. You need nothing to be able to cook your meals, which is great because it is about 35 minutes from stores/restaurants. The river is easily accessible, but the yard is big, so smaller kids have room to play and keep a safe distance. 2 fire pits: perfect for roasting s’mores and so many places to sit and enjoy your meals.
We went in April, so it was cooler and a little rainy. We still got to fish, play and have a fire, but were able to keep entertained with WiFi, gaming consoles, direct tv and board/card games the owners had left when we needed to warm up. Spent one day at Luray exploring the caverns and museums, which were worth the time. Saw bald eagles, turkeys and the train passing by in the distance, which the kids loved. The view of the stars and the river in the moonlight from the loft at night was very beautiful.
Clean and accommodating. Slept 4 adults and 3 elementary age kids easily, plus had room for 2 pack and plays for the babies we had with us. The owners were very responsive to messages and very nice to work with. We plan to come back in summer/fall so we can enjoy the river more.
Great weekend getaway!
Beach's Bottom is a great spot for a weekend getaway! The wood burning fireplace was perfect for the cold winter weather. With it's ideal location on the river, we'll have to come back in the summertime!
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed your stay. Would love to have you come back in the summer.
