Enjoy a spectacular view of the Shenandoah River and the Massanutten mountains from the brick patio or the new wooden deck. The large great room has an open ceiling is furnished with a queen size sofa bed and matching love seat surrounding a beautiful wood burning stone fireplace and a small dining area with a view of the river. A fully equipped kitchen including microwave, dishwasher, toaster, and coffee maker allow for 'dining in'. A small full bath with a shower & tub completes this perfect vacation spot. The pathway to the river is quite an adventure with the wooden foot-bridge and stairway that takes you to the river’s edge for swimming, fishing or just dipping your toes. This cabin does not have direct boat access from the property, but there is a public boat landing 2 miles from the cabin.

5/5 Excellent

Nice cabin
Nice cabin high above the river. We enjoyed sitting on the deck enjoying the view. The A/C worked great during the hot spell. We enjoyed a restaurant called Pave Mint brewery about 10 minutes away.

Beautiful views.
Wife and I had a great time. A long weekend with our two dogs. Hiking fishing and resting. House was very nice. Needed a little dusting off when we got there but a very “Cozy Cabin “.

Great view
Has a great view and located near everything. Pleasant and relaxing outdoor area. It's a cabin so expect a cabin feel. Bathroom could use a little extra TLC but other than that it was perfect! Looking forward to returning!

5/5 Excellent

Awesome relaxing comfortable stay with magnificent location
First, kudos to owner John, who could not have been nicer, more responsive or accommodating. As a result, the mechanics of reserving, paying, gaining entry, and checking out couldn’t have been easier. I elected to bring our own towels and bed clothing, including a bed pad because I’m finicky in that regard. However the bed clothes that were there for us appeared perfectly acceptable. We cooked all meals there and found the kitchen fully functional. Again, because there are some kitchen implements that I need and am comfortable with — like my zester, and special knives and iron skillets — I brought some of my own things. The items there are fine but basic. Meals on the porch overlooking the river were like magic, as were times just sipping wine and eating cheezes there. My friend’s dog was as happy as were we. And all this, under an hour and a half door to door from DC? Hard to believe. The three of us returned unbelievably relaxed and pleasantly fatigued from our hiking. If you’re comfortable with rustic cabins nestled in paradise and don’t need a St Regis to be comfortable, you must consider Cozy Cabin.
