Riverfront cabin with kitchen and patio
Smile Inn Over the River is a cozy, relaxing cabin where you can really get away from all the stress of daily living! Enjoy with your family and friends while grilling on the back deck overlooking the Shenandoah river! Roast marshmallows at the fire pit next in the evening next to the river. Smile as your heart warms watching your kids and dogs running, playing, having the time of their life on the huge wide open field along the river! Luray Caverns, Skyline Drive, New Market Battlefield, and wineries are all a short drive away! Make memories to take home and keep forever!

We are a very pet friendly cabin because pest are an important part of your family and should be on vacation with you, we take our dogs on vacation with us, why not you? There is an enclosed dog run right next to the deck for those times that you do not want them running free. ($30 pet fee)

There are no hidden fees in our price, everything included. There are no fees for linens, firewood, cleaning, or charges for extra people. We supply all paper products, and the kitchen is stocked for your gourmet cooking. We try to supply all the staples and spices that you may need in preparing meals.

Smile Inn sits on 3 acres, bordered by woods and fields on 3 sides, and boasts 400 feet or river frontage in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. The cabin sits near the end of a gravel road in an area we call cabin alley. The nice thing about the location is it is beyond traffic, noise (except for geese), and dust of vehicles travelling on the road. The road you travel is a country road through forest and along the river, 7.5 miles on the gravel road, and is about 17.5 miles from downtown Luray. It takes 30 minutes to travel to town so get your food before you travel to the cabin, but you are in easy reach of enjoying everything Luray (dining and movies) and the Shenandoah Valley has to offer....or just remain at the cabin and relax in the hammock near the river.

The cabin sleeps 6 comfortably, with 2 bedrooms and a loft. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, upstairs bedrooms has 2 double beds and a half bath, and the loft outside the upstairs bedroom has a futon. The downstairs bathroom is divided into 2 separate rooms next to each other, one includes the toilet and vanity, the other a walk in shower and whirlpool bath. (user friendly) The kitchen has updated appliances and includes a microwave, toaster, blender, and combo coffeemaker. The dining area seats 6, and leads out to the screened in porch with another table to dine. There is an open deck beside the screened in porch that also has a table and a gas grill. The living room has a sofa with 2 reclining sides, a separate recliner situated around the gas fireplace. The front porch has a swing and other seating.

Down by the river we have a fire pit and firewood, a picnic table and a hammock. There is a set of stairs down the hill to make access to the lower field easier. There is a canoe and other flotation devices that you may use, but they are use at your own risk.

All the amenities of home are provided including cable TV, WiFi, a DVD player, and phone service.

The area below the cabin that borders the river is perfect if you are planning a small event or family gathering. There is plenty of room to set up tents if you or your kids want to have the full camping experience beside the river. There is an access road that runs along the bottom of the hill below the cabin. To get on that road, travel beyond the cabin 1/4 mile and turn right at the gate, stay on the right hand road until you reach the bottom field. You can use this to bring supplies to the bottom field if you wish.

Again, the drive to town is about 30 minutes on a country road, so make sure you stock up on groceries before you travel to the cabin.

The historic town of Luray, Luray Caverns, Lake Arrowhead, and Jellystone Park are located about the same 30 minute drive. Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive are about a 45 minute drive, Wisteria Vineyard and New Market Battlefield will take about an hour of travel. The cabin is located at the base of Massanutten Mountain and borders the George Washington National Forest. There are many hiking trails nearby including the Habron Gap, and Indian Grave Ridge trail. There are multiple trails located along the Massanutten and the Shenandoah National Park.

Livin' the dream
If you want to get away from the craziness of the world, you have found the place. Tucked back away from everything, this cabin is quite and peaceful, very clean and pet friendly. You can sit on the deck or relax by the water and just let your mind be at ease and the stresses melt away! The cabin is stocked with everything you need to cook a nice home cooked meal ( pots, pans, plates, utensils, some condiment, ect) but, make sure you grab food before hand as it is about 40ish mins to town, plenty of towels, blankets, ect. The big soaking tub was great to unwind and relax as well. Beds were comfortable. The fur babies loved the dog run right down the stairs off the deck and I did too! Didn't have to keep them on a leash all the time. Overall my family and fur babies really enjoyed our relaxing vacation. We definitely smiled the whole time we stayed at the smile inn over the river cabin!

5/5 Excellent

Nice, secluded house
We really enjoyed staying here and loved the huge backyard to play and make s'mores around the campfire. Its a beautiful location, but is out of the way and takes some time to get back into town but we brought our own food and only left once to go check out the Luray Caverns. Would certainly stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

Very relaxing
We had an awesome time at the Smile Inn cabin. Our dig loved the genes in area and we enjoyed the easy access to the river and the screened in porch on the rain day. Well stocked and well taken care of property. Will be staying here again!
