About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths (Sleeps 6-10)

This classic cabin is on a beautiful wooded lot overlooking a creek and the upper mountain golf course, close to everything, and with winter views of the slopes. The location within the resort is ideal.

The cabin is a great space for two families, small groups, and kids of all ages.

The cabin features three levels of living space, four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a well-appointed kitchen, a rec room with 42' flat screen and Apple TV, a playroom for the kids, a flat driveway (a luxury around here in the winter), and a large wrap-around deck.

The main level has an open floor plan, spacious great room, vaulted ceilings, exposed wood beams, and plenty of windows with mountain views from everywhere. It's a classic A-frame style decked out with modern furniture and fixtures, a 42-inch flat-screen TV, and blue-ray DVD player (Netflix streaming included). The great room opens to the kitchen, which includes stainless steel appliances and a large granite island w/ 3-seat bar. The main level also includes two bedrooms (queen and 2-twin), and a full bathroom.

The upper-level loft is a comfortable and private third bedroom (master/king) and full bathroom.

The finished lower level includes a small bedroom with beautiful custom built-in twin bunk beds, a spacious rec/family room with a futon (double bed equivalent), club chairs, a 42-inch flat-screen TV, Apple TV (Netflix streaming included), an air hockey table, a full bathroom, and a playroom. Read our reviews. The kids love this space!

- For the kids -

Every vacation home has a few board games and a deck of cards (this home is no exception), but we know how excited our own kids are when they find something new... so our playroom is stocked with blocks, dinosaurs, cars, puzzles, books, crayons... etc. So there is plenty to keep even the little ones entertained on a rainy day. We also have an assortment of gear (pack and play, foot stools, booster seat, etc.) to lighten your load and make your stay more comfortable. Please ask if you have questions about the availability of any specific items.

- Amenities -

We designed and furnished this cabin with our own family in mind. We love the outdoors and open spaces, and we love the look (from the outside) of a classic rustic cabin... But inside we wanted CLEAN (our home ALWAYS will be) and we wanted modern decor and amenities. We offer high speed wireless internet access, two flat-screens TVs, blue-ray/DVD player, Apple TV (Netflix streaming included), and a fully stocked kitchen for all your culinary needs.

- Things to do -

We're located near the top of the Massanutten Resort, not more than five minutes from all resort activities including the ski slope, indoor/outdoor water park, year-round tubing, two golf courses, go-karts, mini-golf, ice skating (seasonal), horseback riding, fishing ponds, playgrounds, and fantastic hiking. We have also purchased summer passes to the mountain-top outdoor heated pool for all of our guests. And of course, you can venture outside the resort to the nearby Shenandoah National Park, Shenandoah River, Luray Caverns, local wineries, lavender farm... etc. Options for outdoor entertainment in The Valley are endless.

- We make it easy -

We always provide our guests with linens and towels, dish soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, and other cleaners. We also provide starter sets of paper products like paper towels and toilet paper. Although we don't inventory other items, some essentials often stay stocked such as assorted spices, cooking oil, sweeteners… etc.

Just pack your clothes, a little food and drink, and your family and friends... and we'll always provide you with a great place to stay for your Massanutten vacation.

About Matt Carrier

We met at James Madison and live in Northern Virginia with our three children. We volunteer at school, church, and with youth sports. We spend as little time as possible waiting in Tyson's Corner traffic.

We started coming back to the valley a few years ago and found Massanutten to be the perfect weekend vacation spot for our family. This was something that I definitely did not anticipate as a ski instructor here in 1999.

We were very excited to purchase this home in the Summer of 2012, and have had fun preparing a great space to share with our friends and our guests.

Matt Carrier purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Matt Carrier chose Shenandoah Valley

We love the activities that Massanutten Resort provides. We really like the look and feel of this home, the layout is great for our family and friends, and the location in the resort is perfect!

What makes this cabin unique

The views, large flat driveway, and our playroom equipped with enough goodies for our youngest guests.

Great Family Friendly home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, long weekend at this mountain retreat! All three families had plenty of room to spread out. The playroom downstairs was a huge hit! Our active three year olds had plenty to play with. The Massanutten Water Park was immensely enjoyed by all. We will return to this great house.

Perfect family getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family ski trip. There was more than enough space for our family of 4 and is ideal for a second family. The playroom was great for our 4 yo kids with plenty of activities to keep them entertained. It is a 3 min drive to the slopes which was very convenient.

Perfect accommodations and area

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family Thanksgiving get together. Five adults and three children had plenty of room . The kitchen was very well-equipped which made cooking easy. We ate all our meals at the house. We took a daily walk around the neighborhood. The hills were challenging but the piles of leaves along the side of the road were great entertainment for my grandsons ages 16 months to eight years. The house's play room was ideal for all three boys also. In the Area, we enjoyed the indoor water park and a nearby playground. I highly recommend this house and hope to return again next year.

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and I spent the week at this beautiful home, and couldn't be happier! The home itself is modern and recently upgraded, and beautifully appointed with all the right amenities. The space is very clean and comfortable, and was large enough to accommodate much more than my little family of 3! The location is central to all of what Massanutten has to offer, such as the waterpark, go-karts, mini-golf, and family adventure park. We had one rainy day during our stay, but my son had plenty to keep him occupied in the basement! A great selection of toys, books, and games that should keep any kid busy for at least a few hours! I can't wait to come back during the winter for skiing and snowboarding! The owners have taken great care in ensuring their guests have what they need, and have provided an extremely comprehensive list of what to do, where to eat, and what they recommend for families and groups of all ages and sizes. Upon check-out, my husband accidentally left an item of value in the home, and the owner notified us almost immediately. We can't wait to go back!
