5/5 Excellent

Great weekend getaway
Cozy cabin set on a wooded lot within a short walk to the AT. Stayed over during winter months. There was several inches of new snow on the ground, walkways and porch were clean and treated for ice when we arrived (thank you). No bugs or undesirables to worry about with a child wanting to play outdoors. The lot would be more useful if the underbrush was cut. I will definitely be back for a longer stay.

5/5 Excellent

Great cabin adventure for small family
Another great stay here with my wife and our 5 month old daughter! Easy access and great location.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful Retreat
My hubby and I stayed the weekend. This is the perfect place to disconnect from the outside and reconnect as a couple. The claw foot tub was most enjoyable. Will definitely stay again.

4/5 Good

Nice weekend
Overall nice quiet weekend, thank you.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing getaway
I was supposed to be on a cruise that week, but then 2020 happened. I saw an ad for Luray Cavern on Facebook and thought that might be a good substitute. After a little research I settled on this cabin. It was great! Clean and comfortable. In a quiet area, but just minutes from town. In a beautiful part of the world surrounded by mountains. I highly recommend!
