The Nest in Chester Gap

Family-friendly vacation home in Chester Gap with spa tub
Nestled next to Shenandoah National Park and less than a mile from the Appalachian Trail, The Nest offers a true escape... breathtaking views along with an architecturally charming retreat. Enjoy smores at the fire pit... find a waterfall... overlook the mountains in your shower... grill out on the expansive deck... languish in the hot tub... just relax and enjoy the view! My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets on a case-by-case basis).

Do you like to visit wineries with your dog(s)?... check out to see local wineries that welcome your furry friends. Search for Chester Gap, VA.

5/5 Excellent

Great Getaway!
Perfect getaway. Views over the valley were amazing from multiple parts of the house (watched beautiful sunrises from bed!). It feels very private and secluded in the woods but only a 10 minute drive from Front Royal. Place was very cozy with a fireplace during my January stay and had all the amenities.
