About Lynn Jones

I'm a retired woman who loves the Shenandoah Valley and especially Massanutten. Having been born in PA in the mountains, this area in the mountains (Blue Ridge, Massanutten and Allegheny mountain ranges) is perfect for me. I also love people and owning vacation rentals is the perfect way for me to be able to treat others to what I love and offer them unforgettable vacations.

Lynn Jones purchased this house in 2012

Why Lynn Jones chose Shenandoah Valley

The Crow's Nest is the most unique house I have seen in Massanutten. It almost looks like a house from a movie scene with a European flare, two sets of hand-welded spiral stair cases, warm knotty-wood pine walls in the great room and hall ways, hard wood doors and moldings and views of the mountains I love the out-of-doors and this house has about 1,000 square feet of beautiful covered decking with lots of wicker furniture and views.

What makes this house unique

This house makes you feel 'one with nature.' There are two large walls of floor to ceiling windows and approx. 1,000 sq ft of Trex decking and rails all covered with lovely roofing. The most unique aspect is the crow's nest atop the house for viewing the mountains.

We love The Crow's Nest! This is our third year and we can't wait to stay again. The description of this property is spot-on, and we've been rewarded each year with a new updated feature. Lynn is easy to work with, and has responded immediately to questions. We would definitely recommend this home to family and friends!

The whole family loves the hot tub, and we always make use of the outdoor seating arrangements under two covered decks no matter what the weather. The beds are comfortable, the open dining/living area is perfect, and the kitchen is complete with modern appliances and amenities. We've used the crockpot, griddle, coffeepot, Keurig, toaster, and even baked two apple pies in the oven. There are plenty of games, puzzles and books for all to enjoy.

Massanutten offers something for every member of my family. The adults love the golf course, the grandkids never tire of the indoor waterpark, and we all enjoy miniature golf, hiking and shopping. Cirros' Italian Bistro was on our to do list this year, and we were not disappointed!

Fun Girl's Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with this lovely home. The house was very clean and owner has thought of everything you need. The living room area could be a little bigger. It's a little short on seating, but overall very nice house. Lynn was fantastic to work with and answered questions very quickly and was thorough with directions and information on the house. The master suite was amazing! The deck was large and plenty of room to relax and enjoy nature. Overall great get away home for the weekend.

Cozy relaxing house surrounded by any activities to entertain your family.

  • 4 of 5

This was the best house we could find in our budget for the amount of people in our group. This was a great place to stay but there were some inconvenient quarks about the property that prevented five star review. We had towels only for eight people but we had 12 guests. The property has ample sleeping quarters but it does not have adequate living space for a party of 12 unless you count outside or if your group is a close knit family that doesn't mind sitting on top of each other. The amenities were wonderful with plenty to do. Be careful not to use the master bedroom jacuzzi tub during the night if someone is sleeping in the room under the master because it makes the whole room vibrate. I would definitely go back but with a smaller group. The kitchen was well beyonde stock. They put a lot of thought into the items they made available. Our party really enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful Treehouse

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! The decks are amazing! From the upper levels you feel like you're in a treehouse above the world and the lower levels put you right in the trees not far from where the deer walk each morning.

The exterior is beautiful and the kitchen and baths are very nicely done. The sheets, towels, and beds were fantastic!

The house was plenty big enough with 5 very comfortable bedrooms. We loved the downstairs rec room and played plenty of foosball and checkers. There are tons of tv's for movie watching, or in our case the Olympic's!

The location was low enough on the mountain for easy in and out access but high enough on a slope for great views.

Lynn was very courteous, easy to work with and just a wonderful lady.

We are grateful for our time there!

This was probably the best place that I have stayed with family

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to arrange a family reunion of 3 generations and common point between NJ,VA and NC. Shenandoah was the choice and then looked for a big house to accommodate 11 people. This house popped out of the search and based on review grabbed it. Realized that this was the perfect choice after reaching out to this place.Hot tube was the star attraction for kids.Enough rooms for families and perfect kitchen with all utensil. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house. Lynn was very helpful from the beginning.

Fantastic! Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The description was pretty spot on. The crow's nest was a great place to hang out and play cards. The living room was a little small for our group of seven so we would watch movies in the huge second floor bedroom. We definitely intend to stay here again.

Thanks Lynn!
