Description from owner

Kalmia Cabin is in Shenandoah Woods, our private 200 acre valley in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park. Kalmia is the scientific name for Mountain Laurel, the evergreen shrub that graces our mountainside. We located Kalmia to take advantage of the incredible views. Kalmia sits 300 feet above the Shenandoah Valley on a private mountain which is a foothill of the Blueridge Mountains. Standing on the front porch the view to your left is Big Meadows on top of Shenandoah National Park. Directly before you just across the Shenandoah Valley is a spectacular westerly view of the Massanutten Mountains. Sunsets here are an event.

The master bedroom has a king bed and a private bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed. There is a loft with a futon that makes a double sized bed. The sofa also converts to a queen sized bed. The living room has an open cathedral ceiling with exposed heavy timber beams and a dormer to let in plenty of natural light. There is a gas log fireplace with a floor to ceiling stone chimney. Just above the fireplace is a 52" LCD HDTV with DirecTV HD including premium channels and a Blu-Ray player with free Netflix streaming. There is a Sonos streaming stereo with remote. Kalmia Cabin also offers free wireless broadband service. There is a full kitchen with new GE appliances. Pots, pans and dinerware are included. We think the front porch is the best feature of Kalmia, it's screened in, has a hot tub, table and chairs and a stunning view of the Shenandoah Valley. There is a ramp to access the cabin and all rooms except the loft are on the same level. Guests have access to our fishing pond with picnic pavilion, playground and canoes.

We live close by and are available if you have any needs or if you would like some information and suggestions about area attractions. We will also make every effort to accomodate unique requirements. Need a pack-n-play or a high chair? We can usually provide.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Sofa Bed

“Peace and Quiet”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2016

We took this vacation for some piece and quiet. Mission accomplished! It was lovely. The weather cooperated and we had great views. We could bird watch and even had a visit from a little kitty.(just passing thru) We did a bit of sightseeing,but we really just wanted to relax. Calmia is fully equipped and we didn't want for anything. It was very comfortable and we hope to visit again. If you want "peace and quiet" this is the place.

“Nice getaway”

It was a great place to spend a night alone away from the hassles of everyday life and just enjoy one another. Learned a lot about each other with no interruptions. Oh, the house was wonderful especially the view from the hot tub!!!!

“Dream Vacation”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2011

Wood,wood,everywhere. One of our things to do on our list was to stay in a log cabin in the Shenendoah Mountains. Now, we can say this has been accomplished. The cabin was a beautiful well maintained cabin situated perfectly on the side of the mountain. The sunsets were absolutely b-e-a-utiful, especially when viewed from the hot tub. We spent a week at the cabin and while there we did a little flyfishing, hiking and just enjoyed being one with nature in a quiet peaceful environment. We will return again in the near future. Thanks for having us as your guest in your loving cabin. Jim & Diane

“Simply peaceful”

My husband and I travel for our anniversary every year and this cabin ranks in the top 3 places we've stayed. We felt right at home. Beautiful and clean with lots of extra touches made our stay fantastic. The owners are super-nice people. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it to others.

“Gorgeous weekend at Kalmia”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2009

We had a wonderful experience and would love to return to the beauty and comfort of Kalmia cabin. The majestic views from the porch are stunning! The beds are comfortable, the kitchen nicely appointed (which was great for the cook!) and the cabin, spotless. It's new and beautiful, comfortable and quiet, making our visit one of complete relaxation. If you're in the mood for a fabulous hamburger, try the Hawksbill Diner nearby. Be sure and order some home fries with that :) You won't be disappointed! Thank you, Jason and Cori for your hospitality and friendliness. God bless!

“Lovely and Serene”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2008

I spent 9/19-9/21 here for a relaxing birthday weekend. This cabin is absolutely beautiful. The pictures in no way do this place any justice. Everything was perfect. The beds were comfortable, the hot tub on the deck was nice and I found everything I needed in the kitchen. I will be back.

We had no idea what a wonderful, restful vacation we were in for. The scenery is great, just wish we could put it in our pocket and take it with us. The hot tub was magnificent. The cabin was beautiful and you furnished it perfectly. Thanks for being so kind to us.
