About David or Lisa Gander
We are established cabin owners for over 10 years. I have been an owner and manager of Shenandoah River outfitters., for even longer. I have always been in the tourism industry since my teenage years as a guide on Shenandoah National Park. My husband David is a farmer and his family farm has been in the Shenandoah Valley since 1790 We have a working farm, so the cabin is located in a rural setting.
Why David or Lisa Gander chose Luray
Our cabins are on a piece of property that my husband and I bought over 25 years ago. The family used to own this piece and we wanted to get the property back. This is a beautiful river front piece, that we have grown to love. You can float right by the cabins. It is a bird lover and fisherman's paradise. We loved this property and all our friends said that it would be perfect for cabins and we finally caved, and put up the Goose and Gander. Everyone loves our little cabins so we decided to add the last and nicest cabin to the collection.
What makes this Cabin unique
There is a 34 acre island out in front of the cabin. There is over a mile of riverfront access. You can wade, swim, fish,canoe, tube, kayak, bird watch, look for wild life. All within the confines of the cabins. There is a private boat launch on the property. Because of the large private island and the unspoiled area there are birds everywhere.

A lovely, spacious cabin with a great view of trees, stream, and distant mountain. Terrific "hot" hot tub for viewing it all. Very close to Luray Caverns, which are amazing. Good restaurants. Huge, lovely art gallery in Luray. There is a canoe for use by renters but we didn't have time for that. We would like to return for a longer stay sometime and take our grandson so he could compare the Caverns with those in his home town in Colorado.
Wow! We just had a fantastic time.
The cabin was in great condition and was well outfitted. We enjoyed spending time on the upper deck (hot tub), lower patio, and the fire pit. The cabin sits right on a smaller fork in the river. This might not be on the main river, but still very enjoyable. You can see and hear the river flow and enjoy hours of wading in the clear waters. This is a great place to unwind and just relax. If you’re looking for more activity, there are plenty of things to do very close. Also, there is a Walmart, grocery store, and fast food a few miles down the road. You will have a great time here ...enjoy.
We enjoyed a wonderful few days on this property. The peace and tranquility of this property is just what we were looking for. We also had easy access to any of the tourist locations we wanted to visit. I hope we are able to return in the new year.
The owners were very helpful when assistance was required.
Wonderful Weather & Wonderful Cabin
We just returned from a 4-night stay and had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect which allowed us to spend a great deal of our time outdoors. Every morning, my husband and I went for a long walk with our fur baby. We even ran into Dave one morning. He was super nice and told us to reach out if we needed anything.
We had a fire one night and watched the sun go down beyond the water the next night. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for cooking. We brought our own spices/oils and were good to go. Lisa and Dave provided a list of "things you may want to bring" before our stay. It's a good list to follow. I highly recommend staying at this cabin.
AMAZING lifelong memories trip
The cabin was EVEN better in person than the beautiful pictures that showcased the property. As soon as we stepped out of the vehicle we were in awe with the beauty of the river and the mountains. It was just secluded enough to let our family enjoy nature and also be able to visit the neighboring shopping area for supplies. Lisa was extremely responsive and attentive. From the onset of our trip she responded to emails and gave us lots of pointers to help prepare for our arrival. We wanted a pitch dark deck to enjoy all the beautiful stars and she personally came by to help us figure out the lighting. Every last detail was taken care of...we even had firewood sitting by the fire pit for our birthday celebratory smores. We can't say enough good things...it was a wonderful and relaxing stay. We are so glad we went with 5 days instead of a weekend...next time we will probably stay more :)
Thank you so much,
What a wonderful review.
I was very happy to help you and it was so nice to meet you and your husband and Nephew

Clean, Great Location, Great Views, Accomodating Owners
Check in was extremely easy. The house was very clean and had everything you could need in it for a perfect getaway. We loved how close it was to everything. It only took about 15 minutes to get to downtown. We enjoyed the fireplace, hot tub, fire pit and cornhole. They were great ammenities to have. We loved being able to see and hear the river. The check out was also extremely easy and quick. We enjoyed our entire stay at the mother goose!
