“Favorite vacation home ever!”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2016

I stayed at Papa Bears in 2013. I am still talking about this lovely home and I recommend it often. My Boyfriend and I are travelers and enjoy finding great homes to spend our precious vacation time in. This home's open floor concept is sunny and beautiful. Great views all around. Very clean and well appointed. Acres of privacy along with manicured lawns and gardens. Shenandoah National park is nearby,along with many attractions. Fishing was awesome. we kayaked everyday. I have stayed in homes from Maine down to south Carolina. Papa bears has it all. Even though it has been a few years, I still talk this property up all the time. Happy to see it is still on the rental market and hope to revisit at some point.

Owner's reply: Hello Mary , Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Papa Bear's River Cabin. We love having wonderful people like you visit our cabin. You are always welcome here !!! The Hensley Family

“Perfect getaway”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2015

The cabin was much nicer than the pictures! Exceptionally clean, lovely decor, all updated .. everything we needed! Loved the fireplace burning, hot tub! Quiet , totally private , but an easy beautiful drive from Fredericksburg! We had planned to visit some close attractions, but ended up enjoying the cabin so much we didn't leave! Hope to return next fall!

Owner's reply: It is so nice to have guest like you and your family stay at Papa Bear's River Cabin. Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to having you visit again. You are always welcome here !! The Hensley family

Reviewed 22 Apr 2014

Great cabin with a excellent view right next to the south fork shenendoah river. Has everything you need to cook with in case you plan on cooking a lot of food during your stay. I would have gave it 5 stars if they had canoes,etc to use on the river.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your kind words. We are glad you had a good time at Papa Bear's River Cabin. We did not know you had a concern about about canoes, etc. There is a rental service that will deliver and pick-up canoes, kayaks , tubing, life jackets and etc. at Papa Bear's River Cabin. A lot of our guest love this service. Thank you again for your feedback. You are always welcome here at Papa Bear's River Cabin. Kind Regards, The Hensley Family
