Immaculate 1280 sq ft. home is literally a stone’s throw to a series of Civil War hiking trails and the George Washington National Forest hosting beautiful trout stocked streams and wildlife.

Ideally situated near the Shenandoah Valley’s top attractions, yet peaceful and quiet, hidden off the beaten path away from the crowds. Less than 2 miles from the Shenandoah River, minutes from Luray Caverns, Skyline Drive, New Market Battlefields, Shenandoah National Park, wine tasting, Massanutten and Bryce resorts both offer year round activities; golf, skiing, water sports, indoor water park, zip lining, spa treatments and restaurants.

End your day with a cocktail in the comfortable conversation area overlooking a large serene, enclosed backyard. Maybe do some barbequing and savor your meal while dining at the shaded picnic table. The 6 person hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a day exploring and offers incredible star gazing.

This is the perfect place to spend your vacation – quiet time alone or making memories with those you hold dear. That’s why we call it “The Great Escape”.

About Linda & Bob Jarrell

The Great Escape Vacation Rentals is a small family business. We own and manage our own property to give our guests the very best experience all around. We appreciate your support and look forward to making your vacation unforgettable.

Linda & Bob Jarrell purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Linda & Bob Jarrell chose Shenandoah

We have traveled extensively and selected this property for its charm, location and offerings. We felt like this is a cabin that we'd enjoy staying at - and we kept that in mind throughout the process of preparing it for your stay! We want you to have a great time, be comfortable and feel well taken care of.

This cabin is the quintessential mountain home featuring cedar log siding and an amazingly peaceful, beautiful location. Built in 2009, the interior is stylish and current with decor that mirrors the season.

Located near everything, yet secluded, peaceful away from the crowds.

What makes this cabin unique

We own and manage our own property to give our guests the best experience possible. No hidden fees.

Walk to the national forest, trout fishing, historical Civil War trails. Conveniently located near many Shenandoah Valley attractions, but away from the crowds tucked into a quiet, established residential neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin is located literally two doors down from the George Washington National Forrest.

Bring your fishing gear and catch trout at Cub Run. It is located in the middle of everything you want to see. Minutes from Luray, Shenandoah, and Elkton. The cabin has an enclosed back yard that allows us to bring our schnauzers along.

Go fishing, take a canoe trip on the Shenandoah river, shop the many farmer's stores for fresh meat and vegetables, dine at the many local eateries, shop the local stores, and truly enjoy yourself. Grab some lamb sausage and cook them on the grill on the back deck while seeing every star in the sky that you can't see from the city living. Thanks Bob and Linda for creating memories for our family that we will always cherish.

There was plenty of space for our family of four. Clean and beautiful home. We cook all of our meals so made use of the pots, pans and coffee pot. Private but within range of so many outdoor activities. We began to plan a trip to come back in the fall on the day we arrived.

Everything was perfect. Clean cabin and cozy feel

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend at the Great Escape. Linda made sure we had everything we needed and checked in with us! The hot tub was great for relaxing in the chilly evenings. It was the perfect size for 2 couples. It was a beautiful cabin with a great yard for games and hanging out. We loved our stay!

Wow! Truly a “Great Escape!”

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in this amazing cabin and it was nothing less then perfect! Linda and Bob were helpful and kind, checking in on us throughout our stay to be sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was easy to find, in a great location and had great cell signal and WiFi. The inside was spacious and very clean. The linens were soft and spa-like! We cooked dinners every night as the kitchen was equipped with everything needed. A fully fenced backyard with a hot tub and picnic table made it so enjoyable to sit outside.

There was a good amount of activities nearby with so many local attractions we found fun and quaint! Great getaway for anyone! Thanks Bob and Linda for having us!

Great Escape!

  • 4 of 5

The house is easy to find not far from the main highway with stores. Absolutely beautifully decorated! Very very clean, bedding and towels are of good quality. Fireplace and grill were easy to use. Kitchen fully equipped. Good water pressure. Only thing is you can see the neighbors from back yard but it was very quiet there. The backyard has a skyline view of the mountains which was beautiful. The homeowners were courteous and were available if needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

The great escape was perfect for us. We visited to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We were very comfortable with 4 adults and 2 dogs. The house was extremely clean and organized. The owners were very helpful before and during the stay. Hiking and fishing within walking distance. We would not hesitate to stay here again!
