3 Bedroom, 2 Bath House in the woods w/ 2 Large Decks (sleeps 6: 2 Queens, 2 Singles) Dogs OK
(If Valley Vista is already booked for your desired dates and a 2 bedroom would suit your needs, please see our other cabin - Rainbow View, listing 431810.)
Relax in the hot tub as you gaze out over the Shenandoah River glistening in the sunset, the Massanutten Range and the Alleghenies across the Valley. The most idyllic view on aptly named High Top Rd!
Get away to an alternate reality of stress-free country living.
(And at an elevation of 1,414 feet it’s always 10-15 degrees cooler than the city!)
Welcome to Valley Vista Cabin, less than an hour from the DC beltway in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with magnificent views overlooking the Shenandoah Valley! Enjoy remote solitude above the little village of Linden, just 9 miles from the historic town of Front Royal, the northern gateway to Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park.
In the rural Mountain View Section of Shenandoah Farms subdivision, which was planned back in the ’70’s as a vacation community, on a secluded arm of Blue Mountain, now surrounded on three sides by the 1200 acre Blue Ridge Reserve conservation wilderness. And the eastern slope of Blue Mountain is the 4,000 acre G Richard Thompson Wildlife Management Area.

On the 2 large decks with tables and chairs, are both gas and charcoal grills. (Charcoal is not supplied, but is usually left behind by previous guests.) In the yard, enjoy the 36 jet hot tub, fire cauldron, fire pit, and chimenea (wood supplied).
Convenient to local wineries, caverns, Shenandoah River and Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive.
We are a hands-on operation, living nearby, so your experience here will feel a bit more personal than at a typical vacation rental. We enjoy providing our guests with a special experience and hope that you'll appreciate the idyllic setting and all the little extras offered.
Self check-in time: anytime after 4 PM / Check-out time: anytime before 11 AM
The last 1.5 mile of road is gravel. Check our website for a video.
We welcome well behaved dogs. There is a $30 pet fee. If the pet fee is not prepaid at booking, it will be deducted from your security deposit refund. Be advised that there is a county-wide leash law.
We welcome well behaved children.
No special safety considerations have been implemented for small children.
You should note as well that the environment is not particularly conducive to small children's enjoyment. There's no lawned yard to play in, the terrain is very steep and rocky, and the woods has poison ivy and snakes. Inside and on the deck we have not addressed any child safety issues as we have no experience in that regard and it's not been our focus clientele. There is no community playground, and the youngest kids in the neighborhood are of junior high age. The community lakes have no beaches, lifeguards, or restrooms. The closest playground is about 12 miles from the cabin in Front Royal .
Motorcycles are welcome, but even though neighbors on the road have them, every guest who has brought one has complained about the road, so just be advised.
In winter 4WD or AWD may be required. The County is diligent in plowing, but roads can remain icy long after a storm. VRBO offers trip insurance. Enterprise in Front Royal has RAV4s for $70/day. In the event the road is impassible even for 4WD, rescheduling is allowed for available dates of equal value. (We live on the same road so we can keep you advised of current conditions.)
ATVs, discharging firearms, outdoor fires before 4 PM, and disturbing noise after 10 PM are prohibited by various ordinances and covenants.
* The woodstove is an efficient auxiliary heat source for heating the common areas, however continual use will prevent the furnace from activating and thus the bedrooms will become colder.
ǂThere is no extra charge for the number of guests (max 6), but we supply the cabin for your visit based on the number you tell us will be coming.
We do offer a 10% discount to active duty military and veterans. Confirm your status with us prior to booking so we can send you an adjusted quote.
We post info - about local events, restaurants' specials, Shenandoah National Park statuses, and any discounts currently being offered on the cabin rates - on a popular social network (which VRBO won't allow us to link to or even to call by name here). Surely you can guess - check it out.
