Overview

About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

The best log cabin in Jewell Hollow, Luray Virginia and yes it is ADA compliant! Located near the peak of the Shenandoah Mountains/Skyline Drive, “A Buck’s Peak” is a quiet hide-away that accommodates peace and tranquility to help you and your family relax and “re-charge” the batteries. Four master bedrooms – 3 king beds and 1 queen, “A Buck’s Peak” sleeps 10 (with built in bunk beds) and brags the best views on the mountain. One jet-soaking tub in the upstairs master bedroom and the queen bedroom has an ADA compliant bathroom and shower. Both basement bedrooms have full baths! Hot tub (8-person, 120 jets), 55-inch Sony television with DIRECTV, stainless steel appliances, DVD with DVD library, screened-in porch, jet bathtubs upstairs, and a game room complete with a shuffleboard table, dart board and a Sony Play Station 1 (with games) are just some of the amenities that will ensure you and your family enjoy your stay. We have a super large fire-pit and wood is provided. Additionally, we have two grills; one charcoal and one propane gas (propane is provided; charcoal is not). Kitchen has granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with all the pots, pans and plates to cook your meal and enjoy it! Sure, you can do your laundry at the cabin - full washer and dryer units are located next to the game rooms. Wi-fi/internet is NOT available; some guests use a cellular device with personally-owned hotspot - dependent on your cellular carrier. Verizon seems to be best. Pets are certainly welcome and we have a fenced in pet run for exercise. Please do not leave your pet in the pen if you leave the area; pets are confined to that space and other wildlife are interested. Additionally, if you leave your pet alone in the cabin, you must put the pet in a crate; crates are not provided i.e. you must bring your own. Pet fee is $40 for one pet, $80 for two pets or more. Gravel road takes you up the mountain to this quiet hide-away. Four-wheel-drive highly recommended between October and April; front wheel drive the rest of the year is recommended. Wounded Warriors should ask about a special discount. Discounts are offered to either military (retired, active, Reservists) or teachers – ask for your discount up front to figure pricing; please do not expect more than one discount - either military or educator (both are equal). Also, please do not request discount after first communication - tell me up front you are military or an educator; thanks. Have a wonderful stay and please leave feedback at VRBO Listing #438245 to help us make “A Buck’s Peak” the best Luray cabin. Book today.

Why Carl S. Ey chose Shenandoah Valley

A Buck's Peak resides in the Cabin Capital of Virginia. It is a brand new log cabin in the middle of nowhere but close enough to enjoy the fun stuff like Luray Caverns, Arrowhead Lake (3 miles away), canoeing and rafting on the Shenandoah River, zip-lining, wine-tasting, hiking (yes, you can hike right outside the cabin up to Skyline Drive), antiquing, all types of biking, great restaurants and nature enjoyment. This cabin will take your breath away with all of the accommodations from a super hot tub to a fully equipped kitchen to a large screen t.v. and incredible game room.

What makes this cabin unique

This is one of a VERY few ADA compliant log cabins in the Virginia's Cabin Capital, Luray, Virginia! Additionally, you can tell people you stayed in 'the holler!' A Buck's Peak is located in what Luray citizens refer to as Jewell Hollow or 'the holler.' We offer either a military discount or an educator discount (not both). Please tell me up front that you are an educator or an active/retired/reservist/former military member. This cabin is quiet and private - all of your distractions are removed; no internet option, cell service is practically non-existent as you are enjoying the middle of nature!

A nice weekend in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We went here on the occasion of my wife's birthday along with two other families. Carl was prompt in his replies and organization; directions were detailed and clear; the property was in great condition, essentially just as advertised; the hot tub large, hot and immaculate; and the view expansive. The Geminids meteor shower happened to be occurring while we were there and the deck a great spot to watch them arc across the sky. Hiking up to Mary's Rock from near the park entrance was also a highlight. We hope to return at some future date.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

A Buck's View was the perfect place for us to stay in Luray, Virginia. We were day hiking parts of the Shenandoah National park section of the Appalachian Trail. The cabin was approximately 3 miles from the entrance to the park. The views are gorgeous, the cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the hot tub after a long day hiking. We can't wait to go back!!

Glorious!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at A Buck's Peak for the first two full weeks of March 2017 ... with our two feisty labradors.

From the two Woofs, I can only say a huge thank you for the attached dog run! A very thoughtful addition that many other pet-friendly owners should look into (please).

The house (it's way too big to be called a cabin) was absolutely stunning, with great views out over Jewell Hollow. Fantastically furnished, great amenities, very peaceful and a true 'get away from it all' location.

The local area is fantastic, with the nearest 'large' town (Luray) providing for all possible needs (it might seem odd, but the local Walmart - 10/11 miles away - provided the best in fresh produce). Plenty of hiking (the Shenandoah mountains/valley are spectacular to behold) to be done, wineries to visit (although many we're fully open at this time of the year) ... and blissful silence. The views from the Skyline drive were jaw-dropping, if a little intimidating in some places.

Lack of internet connectivity? So what! We did get intermittent Verizon connectivity in the cabin, which was more than enough for what we wanted.

The drive is steep. STEEP! The description does warn of this but, blimey, actually seeing it for the first time was an eye-opening moment. 4WD all the way, especially in the snow we had while we were there. Keep an eye out for the speed limit sign at the top of the steepest part of the drive - this gave both of us a laugh when we first arrived.

Pete (the local contact) was ultra-responsive the only time we called him (light bulbs, which are a constant problem for us all) - sorted quickly, with a great sense of humor on his part and an ensuing entertaining conversation about some of the more unusual parts of the rock-music spectrum.

If you've read this far through this ramble, you're very interested in this place (or its siblings A Buck's Run and A Buck's View). Just go ahead and make that booking. Disappointment does not await.

Beautiful - comfortably secluded and the cabin is spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

This property is good for larger groups. Recent improvements to the roads make getting there that much easier. Cabin is in a great location.

Beautiful Shenandoah February

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderfully prepared on site and prior to our arrival with instructions and directions. The cabin was delightful and enjoyed by all. We left with all the men asking when we could do this again! Thanks!

Private, cozy cabin with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend stay at Bucks Peak. Pete, the caretaker, was very friendly and helpful. The cabin was well stocked and we had a comfortable stay. The hot tub on the deck overlooking the mountains was the best part!

Right in the heart of the Shenandoah Mountain, A Buck's Peak is less than five miles off of the Skyline Drive. Biking, antiquing, wine tasting, zip-lining, Yogi Bear Park, Luray Caverns, whiskey tours, ATVing and the coolest movie theater on the East Coast are just a few of the attractions. Recommend you partake in Wine Tasting at both Gadino Cellars (Washington, VA) and Chester Gap cellars in Rhappahanock. Enjoy the antique shops in Washington, Virginia as well as Luray, Virginia. The Luray Movie Theater is a refurbished mansion that shows first-run movies. Finally, you can simply enjoy the 120 jet, 8-person hot tub on the log cabin's huge deck!
