HARVEY RELIEF

A PORTION OF PROFITS IN SEPTEMBER WILL BE DONATED TO HARVEY RELIEF EFFORTS ....AMERICA STRONG

This Soaring Custom-built Log Chalet is nestled on 5.2 acres near the Shenandoah National Park, letting you enjoy true secluded privacy.

On the spacious deck, you'll feel like you are living among the trees. Many of our guests spend much of their time relaxing there, making dinner on the gas grill and melting into the six person Hot Tub.... Nothing compares to the night sky from the Hot Tub on the deck - so many more stars than you'll find in the city.

Rather have s'mores around the campfire? Go ahead, we provide a fire ring, and you are welcome to gather wood from the surrounding area. Or snuggle up inside by the gas log fireplaces and play one of the board games we provide. This is time to unplug from the constant rush of your workday.....

Two full baths and a complete kitchen will keep you in touch with the modern conveniences you need to enjoy yourself. We provide a set of bed linens for your stay, but ask that you bring your own towels and toiletries.... Time for bed: the master bedroom is on the main level; there's another bedroom with sitting room and bath on the lower level.... Welcome the sunrise through the 6 foot quarter round windows from the loft bedroom that overlooks the main living area.

About Patrick Burns, Skyline Hideaway, LLC

Our Family loves Nature. Our Cabins are Custom designed and Built by Myself to take advantage of the Natural Beauty of each site.

I am a Class A contractor in Virginia and I was MHIC in Maryland. Our cabins are Built with an eye on the Cultural History of the area but still having all of comforts of home.

We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do!

Patrick Burns, Skyline Hideaway, LLC purchased this chalet in 1997

Why Patrick Burns, Skyline Hideaway, LLC chose Shenandoah Valley

This is a custom built Log Chalet that I designed and Built to take advantage of the Natural Beauty of the area.

The Chalet is built with an eye on the Pioneering Spirit of Early America. We built our Cabins to be unique and in context with the heritage of the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountain culture.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The Chalet is one of the best Ways to 'go camping' with a really cool tent...the Chalet.

What makes this chalet unique

The quite seclusion and natural beauty of the Area is consistently amazing me. I have seen at one time or another every bird Native to the Eastern Woods of North America including Eagles, Falcons, Red Cocakted Wood Peckeresm song birds of every type.

Spring and Fall Migrations are a wonderful time to spot many different and unique birds.

Part of our cabin is to enjoy the evening with a camp fire. Sitting around the fire with friends is a experience that you will enjoy and remember. There is ample free downed wood that can be found and used on the property.

Watching the Stars on a clear night is something to behold. The Milky Way is clearly visible. On a full Moon night with clear weather you can go hiking at night without a flashlight.

Hiking to the Shenandoah National Park is near by and easy to do. Three Water Falls are close enough to hike in a day hike. Dark Hollow Falls and Lewis Falls, are accessible by trail SNP trails. Naked Creek West Falls, are a bush whacking hike for the more adventurous. Big Meadows is just 'up the hill' about 1 and 1/2 Mile Hike from the area.

Fishing at the near by pond is also a great experience to relax and unwind. Thoughts of Huck Finn often slip into you mind while enjoy the quite natural beauty of the area.

not horrible, not great

  • 3 of 5

Seems like property management is doing it's best to make this place better. Responses with them were quick and thorough. They notified us that the hot tub broke a couple days before we arrived and they weren't able to get it fixed on time so they gave us a 1 night credit which was nice.

The house is a little hard to get to if the road is wet and probably impossible in the snow without 4WD. We drove a camry and civic in the rain and there were a few times I wasn't sure we would make it up the slopes. The location is great, quick drive to Tanner's Ridge Fire Road (gated, the sign says not to park there but we took the risk and it ended up okay), and then hiked to Lewis falls (~2 hours round trip).

Look on the outside of the cabin is nice. You walk in downstairs and it looks pretty old, upstairs is better than downstairs but still not what I would call great, . I've never stayed in another cabin in the woods so I can't say whether its normal for the amount of bugs we saw to be in the house, but there were a lot (spiders, ants) and we also had a bee inside. We saw a mouse the first day but it ran away and we didn't see it again.

We read the reviews and decided to bring our own pans/plastic plates/silverware so we didn't really use any of the stuff in the house and can't comment on it although it looked like there was plenty. Mattresses looked old (especially the downstairs one) and we brought our own linens/pillows to put on top. Overall the place was okay, just don't expect it to be equivalent to a high-end hotel.

Owner's Response: The Hot tub was repaired the thursday after this tenant stayed and is working fine. We know hot tub not being there has a major effect of the enjoyment of the Cabin. The motor failed the wednesday before this tenant was to stay. The motors are made in California. It takes a week to get the part and schedule a qualified repair person to do the work. It cost $800 to get the part and have the work done correctly. Road work was being done by the development when this tenant was traveling. Sections of road did not have surfacing material on it when the tenant was there. We have contacted the development, and contractor to see if the logistic of the work can be completed to have fewer gaps. The Location is Great Unique and Special! Skyline Hideaway Chalet is the closest you can get to a Cabin, by its Self in a National Park, in the East, that is legally allowed. All of the Rare Birds and Animals of the Eastern Forrest have been seen on the Property at one time or another. We strive for a balance. Most of the time we are successful, but sometimes Nature encroaches. Finally, we are recovering from a dishonest employee that was terminated. We are moving to bring the satisfaction back to a 4 to 5 star standard for every tenant. If the hot tub motor did not fail; we would have likely gotten a 4 star rating. We do appreciate the feedback and we do take actions as quickly as logistically possible in this Very Special Great location!

Contact support is non exsistant

  • 1 of 5

Contact with the owner - never responded. Call management when we didn't have access to the cabin. Breaking in was our option. Contacted management when the toilet overflowed and continued to run. We stopped the bleeding and did our own plumbing work in the morning. No response was ever received by management. The unit had bottles and can left and there were Stella caps found on the floor. This was a problem since we had a one year old with us. Obviously the previous tenants had a good time and no one cleaned up after them. Maybe it was the cleaning crew that had the good time. The hot tub appeared dirty and the chemicals were not correct. I would not recommend this unit to anyone having a family of young children. God provided great weather and a relaxing atmosphere which is the reason I went. I wish everything worked properly.

Owner's Response: First we apologize for the experience this tenant had. This is not at all up to the quality standards that we strive to achieve. Employee involved in this rental had been terminated. As management you want to trust your people, but when being lied to it is hard to defend against. Family members are stepping in and we are going to get this to the quality and service it needs to be. Thank you

Rustic Pros and Cons

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed escaping to this cabin for New Years. The hot tub is starting to show it's age, but it worked great! The fire pit is an excellent gathering spot and an enjoyable activity although no great view (we weren't able to really enjoy sunrise or sunsets in the mountains). The cabin looks beautiful from the exterior, but the interior could use some TLC. Beds are well worn but serviceable. A couple of new couch cushions would go a long way. We had a visit from a mouse the first day and although it seems we scared him off temporarily, evidence of his poop under the sink indicates he's a frequent visitor. CD player did not work. DVD player worked great though Blu-ray players are very affordable - this would be an easy upgrade. Gas fireplaces keep the place toasty, but no fans result in the loft being a pretty miserable place to sleep. Kitchen and bathrooms are very practical though not luxurious and dishwasher is a nice bonus. Having no cell reception and no wifi actually was a major plus for our getaway. Knowing all this information, the stay was enjoyable but a little pricey for these drawbacks.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, we do listen. The personnel that was responsible for the last two years operations were terminated. we have addressed many issues in previous reviews and working to get the cabin up to the standard we state we deliver and tenants expect to receive. Thank you for your understanding.

Beautiful seclusion

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a fantasy getaway for our 30th anniversary. We had the greatest time. It is rustic but just what I wanted time alone with no Internet. The hot tub was great, the place was comfortable and clean. It is a wonderful log cabin. I wish I lived there full time.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a three day getaway from DC. The cabin is rustic, settled beautifully in the woods. It is a great place to go to really un-connect and just enjoy nature and the company you came with. Unlike some of the reviews, the cabin pretty much had everything we needed aside from towels, because of the reviews we came over prepared with kitchen items & toilet paper none of which were necessary. The property was pretty clean, we enjoyed the layout, felt there was ample space. The detailed directions and email about the surrounding area from the management company were very helpful. The only problem we had was that we ran out of propane on the grill one night. Thanks for a great weekend away, we'll be back!

Needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

In reading the reviews, we came prepared with lots of utensils, plates, cookware, etc. however imo, what was there would have been sufficient for my group. However, having said that, here are all the issues we came across:

-The entire home needs a serious top to bottom deep clean

-Dishwasher didn't work and we found the previous guests dishes crusted over in there.

-Kitchen sink was super small so washing dishes was incredibly challenging and there was little to no counter space

-Rear patio door lock is broken, was unlocked when we arrived and couldn't lock it when we left

-Several windows don't close all the way, particularly from the top thus plenty of bugs inside the house including a giant moth the size of my hand that was attacking us!

-The hot tub wasn't very hot and the hot tub cover is in rough shape

-The oven indicator light stayed lit the entire weekend

-The oven cooks unevenly (out of 2 batches of biscuits, 1st one almost burned after 6 minutes and 2nd one was still mushy after 12 even though we let it preheat forever)

Overall my group made the most of our trip and had a great time but there's a lot of little things about the house that need attention. Essentially it's camping in the deep woods/mountains with electricity and plumbing and if that's what you are looking for then you are in the right place. 100% recommend a 4 wheel drive since the narrow roads are just dirt, rocks and steep inclines. I can't even imagine the nightmare of coming there in the winter with snow!
