Cancelled reservation less than 24 hours before check-in

  • 1 of 5

My friends and I were beyond excited to meet up for a much needed post Christmas getaway, but our reservation was cancelled by the property owner less than 24 hours before our check-in time. I messaged the property manager today to confirm check-in instructions and received an immediate response with the answer to my questions. About an hour or so later I received a phone call from the property manager that the owner had an "unexpected life event" and has to cancel all reservations for this week. I was offered a future extended reservation at no additional charge or a refund. The property manager told me she tried to find somewhere else for us to stay, but due to such short notice she wasn't able to find anything. She was very kind and apologetic and based on her statements, this was out of her control. I had to accept the refund due to not knowing the schedules of the other people on the trip and also because of the short notice of the cancellation. It is far too late for us to secure other lodging and we've had to cancel our trip altogether. It is hard for me to understand what sort of life event would be cause for cancellation of a rental that is managed by a property manager and is not a primary place of residence.

Great Thanksgiving Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This was a perfect place for our family of 7 and dogs. The rural setting, proximity to the national park (30 minute drive) and access to the river on the canoe allowed us to experience the region with a very enjoyable place to stay. We were all comfortable in the house and shared a lot of laughs and stories. I would recommend the house for anyone looking for a quiet family retreat in the country. Harrisonburg is a reasonable 30 minute drive for a dinner out and shopping.

Great getaway for family and friends!

My birthday is during Labor Day weekend and I decided to rent a property for the second year in a row to get away and celebrate! This property was perfect! We were a group of 12 and there was more than enough space for all of us inside and outside of the property. The house was very well maintained. The room with the bunk beds definitely helped accommodate our large group. Everything was nice and clean at the property when we arrived and we made sure we left it that way when we departed. The river is about a 2-4 minute walk down the hill from the house. A couple guests and I were able to carry a canoe available at the property down to the river and use it for some fishing. The space in the yard was fantastic also. We were able to play a small game of 6 on 6 kickball. My guests and I really enjoyed our stay at this property and would definitely come stay here again!

Quiet retreat on the river

This little farmhouse was just the thing for a spring break trip. The kids loved the rope swing and playing in the nice yard as well as spotting wildlife and farm animals. To grow ups enjoyed the hottub and gorgeous views of the night sky.

Beautiful Historic Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely love old farm houses. This one was tastefully restored with lots of character. It was very clean. The views are gorgeous. We spent this weekend hiking in the Shenandoah National Park. We appreciate that you are pet friendly. I would definitely recommend this and would stay here again.
