| Location |

 Downtown Luray is only 10 minutes away and has plenty of cute shops, restaurants and things to do. Stop by Hawksbill Brewing company for some beers to enjoy on our deck, or grab brunch at Moonshadow’s Restaurant. A rainy day calls for enjoying the local art gallery, checking out Hawksbill Trading Company, and getting a cozy cup of coffee at the Gathering Grounds. 

Shenandoah National Park has plenty to do right near the Thornton Gap Entrance (20 minutes), we love hiking to Mary’s Rock and some of the best sunrises and sunsets are just within a few miles from this gate. Grab some coffee and head on up to watch the sunrise over the mountains to start your day. 

The Luray Caverns are only 7 minutes from the house are a MUST see if you are in the area! They are the largest caverns on the east coast and a beautiful to walk through. 

There are also lots of kayak rentals, walking trails, and state parks just a quick drive from the house as well. 

After all of that activity, be sure to check out some of the local wineries in the area, like Wisteria Farms, Castle Vineyards, or Glen Manor Vineyards.

 | The House | 

Our home is a 2-story, 3 bedroom 1920's farmhouse with original hardwood floors, doors and trim that's been fully remodeled. It sits on just over 2 acres with views of Shenandoah behind the house and George Washington & Jefferson National Forest in front. Newly added fire pit is perfect for roasting s'mores and watching the sunset over the mountains.

The large peak you can see from the porch is Kennedy Peak, which you can hike to! The house is easily accessible off of 340 and requires no mountain roads to get to the property.

The front porch is our favorite feature of this home, with views of Kennedy Peak, sunset hour is the best hour! Enjoy a nice glass of wine on the conversation set in the front or grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the rockers as you listen to the roosters in the morning. The field in front of us has a dis-used chicken coop (it’s just for storage now!) that adds to the country setting. 


The Kitchen is fully stocked with everything to make a frozen pizza or a four course meal. Plenty of counter space to spread out while cooking or to spread out all the snacks. 

We also have a K-Cafe Keurig that can brew cappuccinos and lattes with it’s built in milk frother. 

The kitchen does have a washer and dryer you are welcome to use during your stay. 

Living Room 

The living room features hand built board & batten, the vintage hardwood floors and stunning trim.

 You're welcome to use the Roku TV to binge watch a new show on a rainy day, and we have 100’s of DVD’s for movie night. There’s plenty of games and books as well! 

Our cozy leather couch is perfect for snuggling up with a new read or for relaxing after a long day of hiking! 


All 3 bedrooms have queen beds and feature mountain views. Mattresses are extra cozy memory foam and black out curtains let you sleep in if you need some extra rest after hiking!

One bedroom has a built in desk that’s perfect for working from - the house does get surprisingly good internet for being in the middle of the country! 


The house has a full bathroom downstairs and a half bath upstairs attached to the main bedroom of the house. 

We have plenty of towels & linens, along with a hairdryer and lots of other bathroom essentials you may need during your stay. 

Pets welcome with fee, please contact us prior to booking!
