Gander Island Cabin Rentals-Can't Wait to Return
November 15, 2015
Our week at the Gander Island Cabin was everything we had hoped for and more! The cabin is quaint, rustic and well-equipped. It was so cozy -- and we had quite a variety of weather and temperatures during our stay. The gas stove in the bedroom is wonderful! The location is tucked away off the beaten path while at the same time close to many, many local attractions. We are already talking booking a return stay!

The cabin was very nice. Great view of the river. My dogs loved the area.
July 24, 2015
Great place to stay...The only thing I might would do to make it a little better is take down some of the trees and brush to the river.

perfect weekend getaway
July 17, 2015
This was a birthday/1st yr anniversary vacation for me and my husband. This cabin is right off the lake which was exactly what we wanted. It was much smaller place than what we were use to but we made it work for us. At night we realized that turning off the light right outside the front door keeps the swarm of flies to a minimum..they wore us out a bit) We really enjoyed the complimentary canoe and we loved the hot tub..The owners were great..thank you both for all of the hospitality..we both had a great time.

Great cabin. Owners are very accommodating. Good place to unplug from everyday life.
February 18, 2015
We enjoy the weekend to the fullest. The cabin was great and the hot tube and area was also great. I will use and recommend this to all my friends. thank you for a great weekend.
October 11, 2014
My husband & I had stayed in the Goose for 5 nights & were very impressed. The cabin was clean & located in a location convenient to Shenandoah, Luray Caverns, Wisteria Farm & Vineyards & food shopping. Sitting on the deck of the cabin or in the hot tub was peaceful & relaxing. We were very happy with our stay & hope to return again.

Honey Moon Get Away
November 25, 2013
We got to spend 3 days in the cabin Nov.17 thru 19 for a short honey moon and we had a wonderful time walking and hiking the property. Plenty of stuff to do in the area. Also the hot tub what time glazing at the stairs do I have to say any more. We have started talking about renting both cabins next summer for a week and bring the kids. Again thank you for opening up your cabin for people to enjoy.
I love hearing what a great time our renters have had. Your review makes the cabin business a very satisfying line of work.
We are so happy that you will return and bring more friends and family.We love our little piece of paradise and glad that we can share.
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you in the future,

We had a wonderful time at this cozy cabin with our family of four. The kids loved hanging out and sleeping in the loft. The cabin is on a beautiful property right on the river, with a nice flat yard where the kids can play. We enjoyed the Skyline Drive, hiking, Luray Caverns, and the Massanutten Water Park during the various days of our stay, and then relaxing in the hot tub followed by the camp fire with smores in the evening. We had a wonderful time!

Peace and Quiet
February 12, 2013
Oh my gosh! Where do I start? Right back there if I could!! What a lovely cabin, clean, comfortable, what more could you ask? We decided to take a mini vacation as I am going to have surgery next Tuesday and we wanted to get away and relax for a few days. We brought our Golden, Gracie and she loved the cabin, too. I know I am going all over the map telling you about the Goose Cabin, but it was so peaceful and quiet there. The clean air and the quiet sounds of night. So relaxing. Enjoy!
Thank You Beverly,
I hope all goes well with your surgery,
We appreciate the positive feed back.My husband David and myself pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the cabins,mother nature takes care of the rest.Please come back for another visit in the summer,when you can enjoy the water!
Beautiful weekend retreat!
October 13, 2012
My friends and I rented both the Goose and Gander cabins and had an absolute blast! The view was gorgeous, the cabins were cozy, and the hot tubs were just what we needed for a fun filled weekend. I would highly recommend these for your next weekend getaway!

Wonderful place!!! Great outdoor deck, very cozy inside, extremely pleasant people, close to everything. We could bring our 2 labrador retrievers who loved to splash in the river. A great place to stay!! Highly recommend it!!
Charming Cabin, Gorgeous Location
April 7, 2012
My son and I spent two nights in the Goose cabin over his spring break and had a marvelous time. The location was just perfect -- easy to get to, yet off the beaten path. The site itself is gorgeous and very private, and cabin is just adorable. There were only two drawbacks, one of them no fault of the owners. The application of fertilizer at a farm across the river brought a powerful -- and powerfully unpleasant -- smell that lingered for about 15 hours until the wind shifted, but I suppose that's the price you pay for being in the country. The only other less than perfect feature of the trip was the dust in the cabin, which was otherwise spotlessly clean. The dust was primarily on the walls of the cabin (which are, admittedly, not easy to clean), on higher shelves (such as the one over the bed), on the ceiling fans and in the loft. We will definitely visit again, but not without our Swiffer!
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Goose cabin.Yes, you never know about the scents in the valley.There are lots of farms in our area that make the river very enjoyable and remote however we refer to it as :"you know it is, spring in the country"! In addressing the dust I am sorry,we just did a cleaning overall,scrubbing walls,fans etc,but we are in a very high pollen area and maybe we need to hit it again.

Great Anniversary Getaway
October 11, 2011
My husband and I wanted a getaway to celebrate our 16th anniversary. We chose the perfect place! The Gander was just as described. We enjoyed the river, fire pit, and the hot tub. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather too.

Great back to basics family retreat!!
August 6, 2011
Our family had a wonderful time here and will definitely do it again. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The cabin could have used a good dusting and the shower is very small, but overall it was very nice. It was stocked better than I expected, it even had dishwashing soap, trash bags, and toilet paper. We were close to everything like Luray Caverns, Shenandoah River Outfitters, Walmart, and restaurants/fast food. No WIFI but that made for a better vacation because it got the family outside to explore. Our family, including two boys ages 11 and 15, loved exploring the river and the island. My youngest visited with the horses on the island every single day. This is a great place to put down the electronics and get back to what is important in life.......spending quality family time together!!

DEFINITION OF RELAXATION!
July 6, 2011
The only problem we had was driving stick up the mountains :-) Very Private and friendly!
Well stocked and a great time
March 28, 2011
The cabin was located on a relaxing stream (great soundtrack as you stand on your deck) with an abundant amount of extras. No oven, and we had to bring bed linens but there were dishes, a fridge, microwave, DirecTV, and a great hot tub! Also there were all kinds of dishes, pots, pans, cooking utensils, etc. Get food from the local Walmart Supercenter 2 minutes down the road and you're set. Sleeps 2 great with a comfy queen and the loft and futon could comfortably sleep 4 more but its in the same room (great for kids, maybe not full grown adults). We were only 5 min away from Luray Caverns and ~30 min from Skyline Drive, great location! Large open field with horseshoes, fire pit, and charcoal bbq. I could imagine this being a great place to go when its warmer. Regardless of season, its a great place for a romantic getaway. When you move in, you enter in the combination on the lockbox outside the door, no need to deal with other people on your romantic weekend. I am highly recommending to stay here to all my friends. I certainly did not want to leave after a couple nights.

We very highly recommend the Gander Island Cabins. It was a short drive from the Northern VA area, yet provided us a very peaceful environment. We were able to take 2 dogs with us and had plenty of room to let them run. The cabin was beautiful and overlooked the water. We were concerned about not having an oven, but found it didn't matter. Plan food accordingly. Just a mile or so down the street is a grocery store, gas station, and other small strip of stores. It is a great location and very, very peaceful. Overall, this was a great experience, and we will definitely be back.
What a pleasurable stay at river cottage.

I’m John Darren living in Chicago Illinois and an ardent traveler. I and my wife Athena planned for our first wedding anniversary at the “River Cottage Cabins” of Woodruff Inns in the Luray, VA. It was a superb vacation spot and we both enjoyed every moment. The cabins were beautifully decorated, cozy and clean with fresh air coming through all the night. There were complete range of kitchen appliances from stove-top burner to coffee maker and more. Almost everything desired this was available. The arrangement was admirable and it made us feel at home. The cabin’s bathroom was decent one with a hot-tub. The out-door activities were also awesome like we both did fishing, horse-back riding and canoeing and all found perfect. The over-all ambiance was peaceful, serene with the management maintaining the cabin with complete responsibility.

Very relaxing, river is best at this time
July 7, 2010
We spent the 4th of July holiday in the cabin, it was great mini-vacation. Took the canoe to the river, cooked outside, chat around the camp fire – fantastic. For the 4th we went to Luray where the fireworks were great. Very kids friendly – large property so they can run around and still be seen from the cabin. Will do it again. Thanks Lisa and Dave
June 2, 2010
The cabin we stayed in was so cute, it was nicely decorated, and clean. It had everything we needed except an oven (make sure you know this when planning meals.) The location was great, beautiful country setting in Luray. The rocking chairs on the deck were a nice touch and we enjoyed them while listening to the river and the birds. The hot tub was so relaxing and we loved the view of the stars from it. The only improvement would be the comfort of the beds, it was a little difficult to sleep. Overall a definite do again and we can't wait!

We decided to go to the valley last minute, and came across this place. We were looking for something animal friendly with some amenities close by. Choosing Ganders Cabin was a great choice. Our dog got to run free, we enjoyed evenings in the hot tub with champagne under the stars, and cooking smores in the fire pit. The river view was beautiful and we enjoyed the design of the cabin. I got a chance to meet the co-owner and he could not of been nicer. Overall a great getaway from the city.
Very nice stay
March 5, 2010
Everything was quite good. The owners, Lisa, she helped us on everything we needed. The house, the view, the hot tub, everything was quite good.
Beautiful view & really nice cabin!
February 24, 2010
I took my fiance here for a suprise as his birthday present. I was a little nervous renting a log cabin without seeing it first, but it was just perfect! I wanted something relatively secluded with rustic charm, but with all the ammenities of modern society--and this cabin fit the bill perfectly! The view of the river 30 feet away with the mountains as a backdrop was breathtaking, and the cabin was very cute with plenty of space, a hot tub, and satellite tv. I will definately be back to stay here again. It was also only minutes away from the caverns we wanted to see & a few nice places to eat. All in all, I would recommend this cabin to any who want a nice stay in Luray.
Great place to bond with someone you love
January 19, 2010
This was a surprise stay for my husband's birthday, I wanted to select a place that we could both get an opportunity to enjoy each other. The place was serene, with the sounds of the river and the soothing fireplace in the bedroom.. I have already begun to tell family and friends about this place. I would love for them to get the enjoyment my husband and got, especially in the hot tub with the fresh wind blowing across our face. I could go about this place, it is a must see for your self.
December 8, 2009
My fiancé and I were looking for a nice, quiet setting to leave our busy city life behind for two days...we were lucky to find "The Gander" cabin! The setting was serial, the cabin was spotless and sipping champagne in the hot tub, while the largest snowflakes we have ever seen came down around us, was the highlight of our weekend. My fiancé and I will be back. Lisa and her husband, the owners of the cabin, were also a joy to work with and the most polite people we have ever run across. THANK YOU FOR THE AMAZING-RELAXING WEEKEND. Sincerely, Stressed Out City-Dwellers

Fall Hot Spot!
November 4, 2009
This cabin was everything I expected and more...it lived up to the claims of every other review that was posted, romantic, clean, cozy, amazing, ideal getaway etc. The one thing I can add is the outdoor lighting was perfect for grilling in the dark and it was great to have control to turn it off for a romantic evening spent by the firepit! I have already recommended it to half a dozen friends and I definately plan on returning!!!

March 10, 2009
Very clean, new cabin. Gorgeous view of the river. Loved the hot tub and fire pit at night. While it is secluded and quiet, just be aware there are 2 cabins right next to eachother on the property, so you may have a neighbor within close proximity. Would still recommend this property for a getaway!
December 23, 2008
Very nice and clean cabin. Great location.. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a peaceful, getaway.

After roughing it
November 12, 2008
This place was perfect for a couple or 4 people tops. I enjoyed my stay there after being out in the woods backpacking part of the weekend. The hot tub was perfect. It's an area that if you have a group of people in the cabin next to you, it makes for a great outing area for cook outs and roasting marshmellows in the fire pit. I would recommend this place to other people. I know I'll be back again

GREAT RIVER CABINS!!!!!
January 6, 2006
I live in a large city in California and wanted to give my grandkids a chance to see the mountains and river. The cabins were great and the view of the river from the deck was spectacular!!! We never missed a sunset! Thanks Gander Island Cabins for giving me and my grandkids a wonderful time!
August 7, 2005
These cabins are the perfect escape from city life but only a small distance from any thing you would ever need! I LOVED MY STAY!
