Rustic Mountain Log Cabin Perched on a cliff side above the Shenandoah River

Waterfront cabin with kitchen and patio
This rustic authentic log cabin allows for the peaceful tranquility of the mountains or a home base for a variety of activities both local and nearby. A spacious family room with a flat screen television with DVD player, two bedrooms each with a queen beds, and one full bath make this cabin a perfect getaway for up to four guests. There is a fully equipped kitchen including microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, and dishwasher. The cabin has both central heating and air conditioning for multi-season rental opportunities. An outdoor stone fireplace with a picnic table are located near the driveway in back of the cabin. River access is made by a long gradual walk along the ridge down to the river’s edge. There is no dock for swimming and fishing so it can be a little challenging due to height of the bank, brush on the banks and trees to gain access to the river.

Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Peaceful getaway
The cabin was quiet, nestled in the woods with a view of the river, and we had a very relaxing stay. After booking the cabin, we discovered that it was one of three properties at that location but the other cabins were far enough away that we did not see or hear other guests. The kitchen was well equipped. The cabin was only moderately clean and the bathroom wasn't in great condition. The bathroom was also quite small and there was barely room to hang towels for just the two of us. The information from the host sometimes conflicted in different sources (e.g. linens were an extra charge or linens were included) or some of the information was confusing (like how to lock the cabin at the end of the stay).

Best Getaway Ever!
Charming, well kept log cabin with all the comfort amenities that you need. In the middle of no where, so if you want to get out of the city, this place is it. As we first arrived, there were two deer in the driveway to greet us. Short drive to the entrance to Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive, and the town of Front Royal. Really loved our stay there and plan on going back!

Private and secure
Clean and spacious Gate access didn't work - VERY FORTUNATELY - another renter to the area pulled in behind us and their code worked.
