The cottage was very nice, glad the AC was on when we got there.
It was ok, the owners were very nice.
Zero complaints! We loved this place so much and look forward to coming again in the spring.
Best Birthday Trip Ever☺️
The cabin was clean, comfortable and well stocked. The owner responded immediately to my questions and concerns and provided perfect turn by turn directions. The only reason why I’m not going with 5 stars is the location of the hot tub. It would be awesome if there was some kind of gazebo or something to give you a little more privacy but it certainly didn’t stop me from using it! Well worth the money. We will be back!🖤
Thanks for the great review! Please plan on returning. I give repeat guest a discount! Spring is beautiful right now and the house is teaming with color. I have put a fence up so cars can no longer park in front of the cabin! And am planning on either putting a gazebo with blinds as a more instant fix, followed by a privacy fence in hopes of making the hot tub more private. We are almost finished with our third cabin. Located near the same area it is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath log cabin. We will be finished in late June. Then again will focus on moving the driveway permanently!
Thanks Again Cara
Luray is lovely, house has some issues
The layout of the house was nice. It is an open concept and it was pleasant to visit and talk all around the kitchen island. The décor was fun, unique and interesting. The 4 person hot tub was lovely and the location (just outside the Q bedroom French doors) was super convenient. The propane fire pit on the patio was nice, although we had to call for a fresh propane tank the first night (they were quick to bring one by). The weather was cool (the first weekend of Oct) and we turned on the gas logs in the living room, which definitely warmed up the space. There was wifi, but it was only 2g and really only enough to check essential email and such, but that’s all we wanted anyway. The house has river access to a nice fishing spot, although it’s not visible from the house.
This is what we wish that the owners would correct: The house is SUPER close to another house. If you look at pic#23, the driveway you see was parked up with 2 full-size trucks from the other house’s renters, whose house was just on the other side of our red one (conveniently out of the picture). The view out our front window was of their trucks! The opening in the fence leading to the picnic table and fire pit was totally obscured to us and we didn’t even realize that was considered part of our amenities. When you rent a house in the woods, you just expect a little more privacy. Inside the house, there were several things the owners could improve on- first, the kitchen is essentials only. There are dishes and drinkware and silverware and cookware, but absolutely nothing else. No spices or cooking oil or sugar, no plastic wrap, no aluminum foil. If this was the first house I was renting, I might think that’s standard, but it’s not. The half-bath had no TP dispenser or towel rack. The full-bath did have a TP holder, but no towel racks…. Wasn’t sure where to hang wet bath towels so as not to ruin anything! The faucets in the sink of the full bath are totally impractical- see pic #16. They are super short and the water barely makes it into the basin! As I said earlier, the weekend we stayed was cool and we had brought our sheets and towels (to save the extra charge of them providing- uggh), but they had no extra blankets in the closets or dresser- just the comforter, which really wasn’t enough for me. The morning we checked out, it was raining, and we realized there were no gutters on the house so as we ran in and out with our belongings, we got poured on at the doorway.
Hello Mary Francis,
I am sorry your stay was less than ideal. Bill and I take great pride in providing a home with more personal decor as opposed to the other cabins in the area with little more than a bed and a couch. So I'm so happy to know you enjoyed the decor.
We have move the fence and no cars will be able to park in front anymore.
I am purchasing a gazebo type tent in hopes to give the tub more privacy.
Thanks you for staying wth us and we hope you return in the future to enjoy the wonderful area. We will continue to make new updates and upgrades in the future. We do listen to our guest input it is very important to us . We are adding a log cabin to our rental fleet! It will be ready in June and is in the woods and is more private! 3 bedrooms, 3 bath custom built log home. Mention your a repeat guest as I offer discounts.
Thank you Cara
Secluded, tranquil and very clean
The place was a home. It was very cozy and clean. The hot tub was clean, WiFi was good and the owners couldn’t have been any nicer.
