Reviews for this vacation home rental in Shenandoah, Virginia
June 26, 2016
We had a wonderful birthday weekend away at this riverfront home. We enjoyed much of what the property had to offer including the ping pong table, hot tub, and tubes and canoes on the river. To future renters, I'd recommend bringing water shoes; the river has many sharp rocks which made it difficult to wade barefoot. Also, there was limited paper towel and no aluminum foil. If you plan to cook, bring your own from home. Overall, this was a great property for a weekend away.

Everything about the home was as noted on the website. The house was wonderful, beautiful and all the comforts of home. From the river views to the mountain views it was utterly breathtaking. The owner Joan was perfect to work with. She was very responsive to my communications. The only negative thought is that the stairs leading down to the river are a bit narrow and the river bank is rather steep, could be a problem for those with mobility problems but those individuals could enjoy a perfect river view from the back porch! The wild life on the property was beautiful, from the deer, ground hogs, turtles on the river and the birds. Fishing on the river was great! I feel very strongly that we will be returning, probably as early as this fall! Thanks for a well needed vacation in God's country!

The house is very homey. It has a lot of room to spread out. The double porches are very relaxing. If you like privacy you will love this place. Loved it here!

Fabulous Family Escape
November 13, 2014
Our family of 8 loved staying in this home. Joan helped us out when we traveled on short notice and welcomed us to her beautiful home with a peach pie. All amenities were available, and our kids loved playing in the river in the kayaks. This is absolutely a vacation escape from the business of DC and we look forward to returning soon!

An Outstanding Vacation Home

We enjoyed a week in a beautiful, spacious home with amazing and spectacular views of nature and wildlife. Had a chance to tour several civil war sites and museums along with antiquing with friends. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
Amazing vacation home

Beautiful, spacious, and peaceful house. Wonderful setting for a relaxing family vacation or getaway whether you like kayaking on the river or just sitting on the porch overlooking it.

If you haven't been to this property you need to the owners are the nicest people. We got lost on the way they stayed on the phone with me and my son until we both arrived. The picture don't do this place justice. It is breathe taking loved everything about this place. It was very relaxing for me and my family the snow made it even better my kids had a ball. the river behind the house was a beautiful view in the morning. This is one place I will revisit again.

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful place. The fantastic porches overlooking the river offered great place to eat, play cards and just relax. Fishing, kayaking, playing in the river, campfire with smores, watching the fireflies light up the night were just a few of the things we enjoyed while here. The house is spacious and comfortable and the decor upscale and lovely. The owner has obviously put much thought and care into the furniture, bedding and other choices in this home. Feels very much like visiting a well cared for home instead of a weekend rental house. We all (my children included) caught fish after fish (small to medium size) which was so much fun. We made some truly amazing memories here. I highly recommend this property. We will most definately be back again!

This was the perfect getaway for us. The home was beautiful and looked just like the pictures provided. We enjoyed the the peace and quiet, the lovely views, and our time on the river in the kayaks. We would definitely like to return!

The house is situated on a great piece of land. Very private, beautiful views, and furnished like its your own home. I cannot say enough positive things about the overall experience. My three kids had a blast fishing, hiking, and horseback riding! We will certainly come back again.
May 9, 2012
The pictures are exact. The owner was very prompt in her responses to any questions asked. The location is remote but close to the expressway. The house looks down onto the river and is near a horse farm. If you have a large family this house is perfect. Wish we had more time to spend there.

My husband and I honeymooned in this beautiful home right on the Shenandoah. It was very large and comfortable. We enjoyed building a fire in the fireplace at night, cooking in the well-appointed kitchen, kayaking on the river, and antiquing in the neighboring towns. The setting is peaceful and pretty, and there is plenty of places to hike or walk. We had a few issues, and the owner immediately contacted us and addressed them. We appreciated the attentiveness. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable honeymoon!

This beautiful home sits right on the Shenandoah River with two level of porches facing the river, another looking out on the front spacious lawn and wooded surrounding. Equipped with everything you could possibly need to kyak, tube, hike , explore or relax inside the spacious home. Nestled between the woods, river and horseback riding estate it was the best vacation spot for our family. Nearby charming towns along the Shenandoah Valley! Breathe taking views, bot loads of fun! Can't wait to return.

A wonderful family vacation
August 29, 2011
From the moment we arrived, we knew we'd come back for another vacation. The house was beautiful! It had an open design for the living room and kitchen which made it easy for everyone to be together all the time. It was nicely decorated and had little touches everywhere. There were kayaks available, which we used in the river located near the house. The house is tucked away, nestled into the trees, but the highway was also very accessible so we didn't feel like we had to drive very far to hit some of the local shops or tourist attractions. The neighboring farm has horse trail rides, and the owners made us feel like extended family. It was the perfect, quiet get-away and I highly recommend this location for anyone wanting to get away from it all and breathe in some fresh air!
Shenandoah River House
July 5, 2011
We took a shot on this house not only never having seen the property, but also never having been in the Shenandoah area, and we couldn't have been happier. Both the house and the location are beautiful. You'll have all the seclusion you want while lounging on the back deck, but it's just a short drive to the beautiful town of Winchester with nice downtown shopping, restaurants and awesome period architecture. We highly recommend for anyone looking for a country get-a-way.

We spent 3 nights at this home and were very happy with our choice. The house is very close to new, with beautiful, comfortable furniture and all amenities. It was quite warm during our visit and it was nice to arrive at a cool house as the air conditioning had already been turned on! We ate most of our meals at the house and enjoyed time out on the back deck as well as an early morning kayak trip in the Shenandoah River, literally right behind the house. We would definitely book this house again if we are ever in the area. We visited the Luray Caverns and spent a day hiking in the Shenandoah National Park. Both are conveniently located near this house.

Wow, what an incredible house! Our two kids originally were just going with my parents for the week and my wife and I were to stay a couple of days - thankfully we stayed five days and had a blast. The house is beautifully decorated, kayaks provided, and the scenery is gorgeous. We had s'mores one evening with the firepit out in the front yard and played all sorts of games indoors and out. And did I mention the kayaks:)? I fished the entire time and caught many smallmouth bass and sunfish while the kids went after crayfish! And we were thrilled to see river otters as well! Many thanks to Joan and her hospitality - that was a great way to end the summer!

Centreville, VA, USA

This was our first time staying in The Shenandoah. The house was spacious and fanstastic! A total of six adults and six children (ages from 5 months to 8 years old) stayed at the house. The kids were instantly excited about the river, fishing, kayaking, tubing, open field to play, camp fire/roasting marshmellows, etc. We'd setup a tent for them too! The current on the river was slow; I wish it was a little faster - but we had a great time kayaking/tubing nonetheless. Fishing was exciting b/c each (older) kid caught at least one fish! Thanks for a lovely house and a peaceful getaway!
Riverfront Home - Truly Wonderful!
July 26, 2010
This home is wonderful! The home is clean, spacious, and has wonderful views of the Shenandoah. The kayaks were a real treat, as were the tubes. We saw plenty of deer every day in the fields surrounding the home, as well as "whistle pigs", otters, turtles, and, if you like fishing, you will love this location. We caught more fish than you could count - every day - all day long! We found that kayaking up-river first and floating back down worked best. There are a few small rapids that were enjoyable and the scenery was unbeatable; not to mention the solitude - we saw exactly 5 other people all week. Thank you, Joan, for your hospitality! We will definitely be back.
Nice cozy, clean and nicely arranged cottage!

We recently stayed at this cabin and found it to be extremely comfortable, clean, cozy and nicely arranged. We had everything we needed for a great getaway! The hot tub was very much enjoyed. We would love to stay in this cabin once again.

It is like I told Joan after I got there, "you can not have it back!!" It is a beautiful home with everything you need, including relaxation that you didn't know existed! The quiet, the birds, the porches, the river, the kayaking! Everything!! Joan was so eager to do anything we needed to make our stay great and was more that grateful for any comments to help make it better for the next person. She bent over backwards to help me and my family to have a wonderful time during my son's graduation. She is a gracious host. Though I was a little leary of it being a little far away from Harrisonburg, we got there in no time, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I WILL BE BACK, it was great!! Thanks, Joan. You are great!! Karen

We stayed here at the beginning of November to be alone in a quiet and beautiful setting. It was amazing! The home is beautiful, comfortable and tucked in the middle of a forest and mountains! It was the perfect quiet getaway we were looking for. Will definitely return!!!!!

beautiful home and picturesque setting!

My friends and I had a wonderful experience staying here. The scenery was gorgeous: the leaves were changing, and the house is perched right above the river. The arrangements were perfect for three couples (and one baby). The great room was a terrific place for all of us to spend time together cooking, talking and just hanging out. We all commented on how thoughtfully put-together the home was: everything we could possibly want was there, and the house itself was beautifully furnished. In addition, the owner was very gracious and prompt in returning my emails. We've stayed at several homes in the past, but this is one that we definitely plan to revisit!

Perfect secluded retreat. The home owners went over and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Spacious, cozy, beautifully decorated and very private. We couldn't recommend this home more highly!

The house was so very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Just the weekend we needed to get away from the city.
Relaxing Vacation Spot!
August 18, 2009
It seems like the other reviewers were here for an outdoor adventure. My husband and I went for some time away from it all. The house was fantastic - very homey, and almost everything in it seemed new. The owner is incredibly nice to work with, and it was great just to get away from it all. Being right on the river, right at the foot of a mountain was excellent. We enjoyed the kayaks, relaxing on the THREE porches (two overlooking the river), hiking up the mountain, and just enjoying the beautifully furnished house. Would definitely recommend.
August 5, 2009
The family loved the house and the kids stayed on the river fishing and kayaking from sun-up to sun-down. I would definetly recommend this home and look forward to staying there again.
Remarkable Shenandoah River Gem
June 29, 2009
This rental truly is a remarkable gem! Nestled against the backdrop of the Shenandoah Mountains, and shaded on the bank of the clear Shenandoah River sits this beautiful quaint rental house. The home has 2 fireplaces, 3 bedrooms with queen and King beds, two bathrooms with high-end stone tile, gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops, 2 level decks that over look the river right from your backyard. You can grill, have a campfire cook out with provided fire ring, and then sit in luxury in this finely decorated home. Wood floors, and a French Provencal/ English Country style through out the home that will make you feel you are staying a Better Home and Gardens magazine ad. Amazing! Go fishing in the river as we caught fish as we threw in our lines, kayaks provided, everything you need for an amazing get away. Style, comfort and luxury in the country. Wow, this is no overpriced shack in the woods, this is an amazing stay. My boys and I had a blast, and the owner is awesom
