Beautiful chalet-style home on one acre fully fenced lot near Front Royal. This private, yet close to everything home, is located in the gated community of High Knob. Within 8 miles are: Shenandoah National Park (hiking); Shenandoah River (tubing, kayaking, and canoeing); 10 wineries; Skyline Caverns (cave tour); Front Royal (antiques, shopping and gourmet meals); Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (endangered animal science center); and world famous Skyline Drive with its beautiful vistas. Also, amazing Washington DC is only a 1.5 hour drive away.
The home has a spacious open floor plan with huge picture windows opening to an expansive, but private backyard. It has two bedrooms downstairs and an upstairs master with jetted tub. The kitchen is fully-equipped and the basement has a pool table and a foosball table. Other amenities include a 2-car garage, large screened-in front porch, long back deck, gas B-B-Q, and a gas fireplace.
After enjoying a fun day exploring the area, return to the chalet and feast on a B-B-Q dinner accompanied by drinks on the deck. On summer nights, marvel at the hundreds of fireflies in the backyard. In winter, relax on Dutailier glider rockers in front of the fireplace. For nearly everything you want to see do, this is a great place to start and an even better place to end.

We both grew up on the west coast and had family cabins where we would go on weekends. The cabins were places we could relax and get away from the stress of everyday life. Our home in Front Royal has the same feel--calming and relaxing.
The Owner purchased this chalet in 2010
We chose Front Royal because we enjoy kayaking, hiking and other outdoor activities. We also enjoy the more relaxed pace of Front Royal. It is a refreshing change from the busy pace of our Washington, DC lifestyle.
We return to this house year after year for an annual fall getaway and I honestly can't imagine finding any place more perfect. It is always clean and welcoming, beautifully appointed, and includes anything you could possibly need for a comfortable and happy stay. If you enjoy cooking or baking the kitchen is very well equipped and wonderful to work in. The living room is so comfortable, large HD TV, wonderful WIFI, and of course, who could be happier than we are sitting in front of the fireplace reading in ultra comfortable rockers. Our dog gets excited when we arrive too, her one chance a year to play in a huge fenced in yard...she thinks it's heaven. The location is great.. very close to all the attractions and points of interest. The owners are wonderful people, incredibly helpful, and always anxious to do whatever they can to make your stay a perfect one. You will not be disappointed if you visit this property, and chances are you will be like us and find yourselves anxious to return again and again.
Deborah's home was simply perfect. Our group was 2 couples and 2 good dogs. The humans were thrilled with the large, airy, open rooms and the dogs were thrilled with 2 fenced acres to run and play. We found house extremely comfortable. The screened porch was our favorite spot. Furniture was comfy, Deborah was easy to work with. We have already booked our weekend for next year, and can't wait to return!
This is a special property in a lovely location and with so much to see in the area.
Our family had a wonderful vacation here and could not wait to return to the property after our days out to relax and chill out. We definately will be returning when we are able.
We just returned from a wonderful Christmas at Serene House. We chose this location because it is very close to my son's family. What a find! The house is large, open and very well appointed. The grandkids loved everything about it. The huge yard allowed them to play and explore for hours and the games and pool table provided entertainment for the rainy times. Turkey and all the trimmings was requested for Christmas dinner and the large kitchen area with a convenient island and lots of pots and pans made cooking a pleasure. The owner was very kind and responsive before and during our stay. We all had a memorable holiday. I would recommend this property without reservation and would definitely stay here again.
I just returned home from a week's rental in this home. I have nothing but praise for the house, the area, but most of all, the owner. The house was clean, well appointed, and in excellent condition. The owner went out of her way to ensure we were happy with "Serene House". The neighborhood was very nice and the property the house sits on is beautiful. We plan on returning to this area next year and will definitely look to rent this house again. I highly recommend this rental.
My family and I stayed for a week at the "Serene House" and it was exactly as described in the website. A spacious, clean and well maintained cabin with great views of the Shenendoah area. We had two small children with us so the 3rd kids bedroom was just perfect. It was also great to have our own garage which easliy fit our large Nissan Quest mini van. The dining area was spacious, the kitchen well equiped and its center work area was super convenient. Another plus was the screened in porch just off the kitchen. Great for morning tea or evening relaxing. We also enjoyed some great steaks on the nice gas barbeque grill. Since we were visiting in the summer another great value was the community pool. It was clean and a great way to beat the heat. The owner was super friendly and very helpful in providing information about the area or just answering questions that arrose during our stay. I would definitely recommend this cabin to my friends and relatives and would also rent here again should we return to the Shenendoah area. (the cabin is really so centrally located that you can do lots of day trips and return to a wonderful, relaxing home!!)
If you enjoy touring wineries, this is the place for you. There are 8 vineyards within 15 minutes of Serene House!
