Description of the Luray vacation cabin rental
”It is the marriage of the soul with Nature that makes the intellect fruitful, and gives birth to imagination.” Henry David Thoreau
Welcome to Walden! A place that combines the beauty of the natural world with the warmth of a modern cabin. Located on 54 acres along the historic Shenandoah River, Walden offers one of the most spectacular retreats in the valley.
Completed in 2013, Walden is a deluxe one bedroom cabin that is timeless. Nature prevails through every window with the sweeping views of the land that surrounds you. From the moment you arrive the feeling is captivating. Walden offers a spacious living room with natural wood cathedral ceilings, a gas log fireplace, flat screen (satelite) TV, DVD, High Speed Wireless Internet and Stereo. The kitchen is fully equipped and for dining you have the option of eating inside, or just a step away, you can dine outside on an 8x12 screen porch. The bedroom has a queen bed, ceiling fan and 14 foot cathedral ceilings. Walk through the patio door on to the front porch and settle into a warm, relaxing hot tub. The bathroom has a gorgeous step in tile shower with a gentle flowing rain style shower head.
A gradual walk through the field will take you to the river where you can relax under the shade of the sycamore trees, dip your feet into the Shenandoah or have a relaxing evening around a fire. (The riverfront is solely for the use of our guest at Walden and Sundance. #61496. Although Walden and Sundance share the riverfront, the two cabins are completely private from one anther.)
Walden is a place where you can understand what Thoreau meant when he wrote, “Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself the influences of each”

Fantastic Cabin and view!!!

What a perfect getaway spot!!! The cabin is beautiful and provides all the amenities for a great vacation. A great hot tub on the deck with views of the river and mountains, a warm fireplace in the living room, Wi-fi and satellite TV. Our dog loved the huge meadow in front of the cabin, perfect for some frisbee. We are already looking forward to a return trip in the fall. Thank you Derek and Woodside Cabins for the perfect spot to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary! We will see you again in September!

Perfect getaway

December 1, 2014

This was the second year we spent Thanksgiving week at Walden (plus 4th of July week this year), and we really feel like this is our much needed respite from stress and worry! The cabin is beautiful and nicely decorated - without the clutter you see in a lot of rental options. There are a lot of nice touches like the gas fireplace, fully loaded kitchen, great shower/bathroom, screened in porch, hot tub, fire pit right by the house and fire pit by the river. The only thing that would make it even better would be a hammock so I can laze/read in the sun. The owners are great to work with and have helped us with restaurant recommendations. Our dog loves the wide open fields to romp around in and had her first swim in the river this past July. We have recommended this cabin to everyone we know looking to get away for a weekend or week. It is such an easy 1.5 hour drive from DC, and you can conveniently stop at the Apple House on the way in for apple donuts.

The Walden was the perfect getaway cabin! Not only is it a short drive from Shenandoah National Park, but the cabin's property is as relaxing, peaceful, and beautiful as we ever could have imagined! The cabin still seems brand new, with all the amenities you would ever need, but not cluttered or too busy. The hot tub was perfect and totally secluded. We loved sitting out by the fire pit at night, and made smores both nights we were there! Right across the meadow (maybe 100 yards) is a beautiful, flowing river! There were plenty of chairs, a table, and a fire pit right next to the river- we took advantage of this peaceful set up for cocktails and appetizers both nights! The property is very private, you wouldn't know there were houses around if you didn't see them on your way down the road. The stars were amazing at night- the sky was so clear and the air was so fresh! We went to the cabin hoping for something cozy, romantic, and peaceful and we got more than we were looking for! Derek was an amazing help, from the homemade cookies waiting on the table to being available to call via telephone with any questions. We felt that it was worth every penny and more!

We were extremely happy with this property and the location. The cabin was easy to get to and the walk to the river was an easy one too. There was firewood for the fire pit and a gas grill in the screened porch. I highly recommend this peaceful property!

The cabin was very nice and cozy. The river was beautiful. It was nice that the owners supplied the wood for the outside fire.

Owner's reply:

We are glad you enjoyed your time at our cabin. With having just finished building Walden, we had a lot of extra firewood around and we were glad we could provide it for your stay. There is nothing like an evening around a fire under the stars. Thank you for choosing Woodside Cabins for your getaway.

My wife and I needed a quiet weekend getaway, and the Walden was exactly what the doctor ordered!! The cabin was clean, cozy, and warm. It was very easy to feel at home! The hot tub was icing on the cake. My wife and I are already planning our next getaway! You won't be disappointed!
