Absolutely beautiful & peaceful. Excellent staff, well maintained. Highly recommend.
“A Jewel In The Woods”
Two words: Stay Here. This is our second stay at Shenandoah and we are looking forward to our next stay. My girlfriend and I go to VA about once a month for a family visit. We plan on bringing the kids in the Spring and Shenandoah is where we plan to stay. Indoor and outdoor pools, a lake for canoing, kayaking and paddle boats, horseback riding, tennis and basketball courts, a softball field, mini-golf. The restaurant on grounds, Izacs, is great. And for history, this place provides easy access to the Blue Ridge Mtns, Montpelier, Monticello, Ash Lawn, Charlottesville and other historic areas. Richmond is a bit of a drive, but not all that far. We stayed in the "motel" area, but there are cabins and yurts as well. And from what others have said, they are beautiful. One negative is that internet access is not free. It's not all that much, but not free. This is a time share resort. Don't let that deter you. The sales staff is not pushy. They ask if you want to participate in the sales presentation. And if your answer is "no," it is absolutely fine. The entire staff from check in to grounds crew is fantastic. True Southern Hospitality. Now, for all you "I need to find the closest shopping mall" folks, forget about it here, unless you are going to Charlottesville. You even need to travel down a back woods country road to get to this Jewel In The Woods. Looking forward to our next visit. And if you are planning a stay here, plan ahead. It books up quick. Happy Travels
“Excellent older hotel.”
I gave the hotel a 4 in location as it is not really close to Charlottsville, our destination. This is the only fairly large city close by. In all other areas it deserves a 5. Although the room was small, it was extremely clean with a coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, and hair dryer. Very quiet at night as they enforce their 10PM to 10AM quiet time. The indoor pool is small but the hot tub is of fair size although we took advantage of neigher. The grounds are beautiful -- horses, walking trails, general store. Being there in the late fall, the outdoor pools (large) were not open. Roads to the lodge are in good condition. It is about 35 minutes to Charlottsville on good 2 lane roads. Staff could not have been nicer. Attached restaurant's food was good to very good as was the service. The price was more than reasonable. I certainly would go back to this location any time in Northern Va. Excellent stay.
“Great hotel for romance.”
Gorgeous night sky and comfortable bed. Wish we had more time to enjoy the resort, but we will return!
“Can't wait to go back”
Excellent service, beautiful setting, a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the Virginia country. Yourts were very comfortable, included all amenities, and provided the mountain feel that the resort emulates.
“Already making plans to go back”
I had never even heard of a Yurt before I saw the listing here. Pictures just do NOT do them justice. When I walked in it took my breath away. It was raining the day we were here but that just added to the experience. The rain falling atop the Yurt all the while we were wrapped in comfort on the inside. We are already making plans to return.
“Best hotel I've stayed at in a long time!”
This was a lodge set in a beautiful collection of fields, mountains, and lakes. There were camping cabins and yurts for other options, which we will be trying next time for sure! The location was close to where we needed - we were skydiving in Orange, VA - yet the lush scenery made us feel like we were far from civilization. The pool, hot tub, two saunas and activity room were the best I've seen in a long time. We appreciated the personal service given to us by the concierge, as she answered any questions we had and gave us suggestions for local restaurants to try. The room itself was very comfortable - an oversized plush chair for reading, and real porcelain coffee cups added to the charm. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a weekend getaway, or a weeklong hiatus.
This resort has everything you could want, marina, pool, beautiful lake, game room, room amenities, etc. and the room was very clean. We stayed in the lodge in a one queen room which was very small. However, they managed to utilize every bit of space with their customers in mind. The room had a microwave, frig., iron, large TV, etc. Located in a lovely country location away from it all.
“My home away from home”
It is an excellent place to stay when visiting Charlottesville. Plenty of activities for the family including mini-golf, horseback riding, tennis courts, etc.... It is centric to all the winneries for those going on wine tasting tours.
“Envy of hotel providers. Soul satisfying secret and charm.”
