Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Luray, Virginia
Wonderful trip with family
January 6, 2016
We booked Christopher's Run cabin to "get away" for New Years. It was great. Our children loved the loft and the close proximity to the water. Our dog loved it too. It was quiet even though there are other houses nearby. We visited the Caverns and had lunch in Luray. The pizza at Genarro's is really yummy! We'd love to own a cabin just like this one. The kids loved the hot tub too.
Worth every dime. Wish we could've stayed longer!

The cabin was so comfortable it made us not want to go anywhere. We had to talk ourselves into leaving the cabin to go out to Luray Caverns. It was that comfortable. The owner was very nice and easy to work with to get our reservations done in good time. Once it was time to leave, no one wanted to leave. It's a great place and well taken care of. Definitely worth the trip.

We had a great stay at Christopher's River Cabin. We stayed 4 nights, loving how secluded the cabin is and its location right on the river. The views driving into the cabin are breathtaking. We were able to sit in the hot tub in the snow while watching the river - magical! The fee for our dog is much lower than other places, and it was a great spot for her. The cabin has everything you'd need - Be sure to bring spices, oil, etc. from home. Also any of your favorite pans or pots. The only concerning moment we had was that one of the upstairs bedroom windows was open when we arrived, and we didn't notice. The next day we entered the house and there was a poor bird stuck to a sticky mouse trap in the middle of the living room. I guess the bird flew in through the window and smelled something on the trap (I was concerned about our dog finding a trap after that, but we couldn't find any more so I guess they are well-placed). My boyfriend took the bird outside and put it out of it's misery - it was very sad. Otherwise, great vacation! We hope to return!

This modest ' no frills ' cabin is river front and located on the south fork of the Shenandoah River. It is very easy to find, clean, has comfortable beds, efficient A/C unit and a functional kitchen. It is a perfect location for swimming, tubing, kayaking, canoeing and fishing all day long. The large, well kept yard is great for outdoor games and the fire pit inviting. Cell phone service comes and goes inside the house and there is no land line phone. There is no internet service. The sunroom is spacious and faces the river as does the deck. The hot tub also faces the river and was very clean. Very little traffic goes by the house and although you can see the neighbors on both sides of the house it is at the same time private. The property manager is efficient, available and accommodating. This is a property we would come back to.

Great cabin! The views are unbelievable! NO Wi-fi! If you want to make a phone call with your cell phone or go on the internet, you have to walk out into the cornfield in front of the cabin about 20 yards.

What a place!!!!!!
November 3, 2012
This place was absolute disaster. The cabin was very dirty. The whole house had a bad odor. There was no detailed information about the rooms. Be prepared there is only one bedroom. Full kitchen she says believe me theis is not a full kitchen, not enough pots and pans, not enough silverware and plates. No salad bowls. The funny thing is that she has a notebook and everyone wrote a review. And most of them mention the issues but she hasn't changed anything... If I were you I wouldn't go. She doesn't care if people are happy or comfortable...

Perfect little private getaway spot that is easy to get to. What a view! Cabin was nice and clean with all the necessary accommodations. Unique loft style lay-out was lots of fun. My dog and son loved the yard and the river so thank you for making this dog friendly. Bring your own water!
5 miles of bad road
July 5, 2012
The road to the cottage was rutted and washed away . It was never mentioned in the ad that there was a dirt road to get there. If our car was a bit lower we could have lost our oil pan and our muffler. Once there we were relieved that we made it. The cottage was cute and clean . The beds were in dire need of new matttresses and the hot tub had no steps to get in and the cover was torn. The smell from the well waster is very bad and hard to get use to. It stinks like rotten eggs and when someone runs the water in the bath room or kitchen it smells up the entire house. You need to buy plenty of bottle water and to breathe through your mouth when in the shower. There was no tv reception and we called the owner who lived next door he and his son came and took branches off the roof. There were no directions on how to use this satelite dish and we were lucky his son knew. They were very friendly and helpful. The river was out front but thwere was no easy access to get to it. It was very rocky and there was no dock. We are both seniors so we had a hard time getting to the shore to fish. we were there for the bad storms and the door on the sun porch blew in and we lost powere on and off but we were very lucky. The tree in the back yard split but fell toward the river. I have rented before sight un seen and was appalled at the place. Never go for, it if the ad says rustic. Bad Move. I was glad we had air and the cottage would have been fine but for the above mentioned problems. The main thing here was not mentioning the bad dirt roads.
Great Location, Bring Bottled Water
May 17, 2012
The trip was perfect in every way (river, hot tub, grill, fire pit, open space), except the water smelled bad. Just bring a ton of bottled water.
December 20, 2011
Everything was great - fireplace, sun room, deck with hot tub, spiral staircase, RIGHT ON THE RIVER with easy access, close to shopping, great mountain views. The only downside is the well water - it stinks to high heaven! Bring lots of bottled water.

Best Kept Secret in the Valley
June 26, 2011
This place has got to be the best kept secret in the valley. It is difficult to pick a cabin by looking at pictures on the internet. You kind of have to pick one and hope it turns out to be what the write up says it will be. Well, this place is more than what the write up says. It is beautiful! Right on the river, clean, comfortable, secluded and quiet. Even though it is secluded you are within a 10 minute drive to downtown Luray. We enjoyed walking the Hawksbill Greenway, shopping in the local shops, swimming at Lake Arrowhead, fishing in the river. Oh, and watching Wranglers Baseball. If you go during the summer make sure you take in a game. We can't wait to go back again next year.

We loved our visit to the cottage with great views from the river to the gorgeous blue ridge mtns. We enjoyed exploring the river beds, fishing, and the neighbors were nice as can be. The caverns and town of luray were beautiful and clean with lots of immenities, even a local ice cream spot. We will definitely return again soon!
Great Birthday Weekend
November 23, 2010
5 of us stayed here for a birthday weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. The bed was very comfy, linens and towels were provided, and we even had extra sleeping space. The hot tub was a huge hit, and you really are right on the river. Thanks for a fun weekend!

Very relaxing stay

Thanks for such a wonderful stay. The cabin was very clean and cozy and I can't say enough how beautiful the riverfront property was. We caught so many fish in the river and enjoyed time around the multiple campfires. Thanks again!

My family had a great time at the cottage. The setting was spectacular with the mountain views and the river in our backyard, and the cottage was very cozy, just what we were looking for. We hope to visit again!

Overall the property was great. It was nice and secluded and we loved the hot tub & fire pit. The only complaint I have is that the instructions say to take your garbage with you but does not say where to bring it. When you have a packed car and a 3 hour drive it would help.

Christopher Robin Cottage

I stayed there with some friends. This house is just perfect! It fits 7 people. When we arived, everything was clean and nice. The place where it is, is awesome, you can see the mountains and the back yard ends at the Shenandoah River. On the back porch is a big grill and a big hot tub (when you are sitting in there, can you see the river) If you are looking for a place to relax and feel free and good, book this house! :) We had an awesome weekend there!
