About Michael Handley

We fell in love with Massanutten at first sight. It's a beautiful place with lots to see and do. We were fortunate to purchase our vacation home last year, spending several months renovating our home, yet retaining its rustic mountain charm. Our family loves staying here, and we wanted to share with others this mountain home.

Michael Handley purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Michael Handley chose Shenandoah Valley

We love our vacation home. It is in a quiet neighborhood and centrally located between the ski slopes and the waterpark. It's not uncommon to see many types of wildlife while relaxing on the decks.

What makes this cabin unique

Easy level parking, open concept floor plan and located in the middle of the mountain which makes it close to everything!

Summer Vacation 2015

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed on the property this past August and we can't stop talking about our visit!! Mike responded to our inquiry right awayI want to thank Mike and his wife for meeting us and giving us a tour of the house before we settled in. Everything the previous reviewers said is true. It is a fantastic place. It was the most well stocked vacation home I have ever stayed in. We stayed a week and it didnt seem long enough. My teenage daughter LOVED being here. Teenagers are hard to please. The homeowners take pride in their home and it shows.

If we ever get back to Massanutten again we will rent again! Our rental deposit was promptly returned. We feel lucky to have had the opportunity to stay here.

Ideal place for kids!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing this house is missing! Every detail has been thought out, and it is fully stocked. I forgot towels for the water park? No problem! Everything is clearly labeled, and easy to find. We had plenty of room to spread out. Four 10-year old boys thought the arcade basement was heaven! They didn't want to leave. Am recommending to friends and will return!

Kitchen well stocked with a coffeemaker, waffle maker, new oven, grill on deck, everything anyone could possibly need or want. Our family would stay here again & again.

Don't mess with perfection

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year we have stayed at this home in Massanutten. And there is a reason we keep returning - actually many reasons. This home is perfect from the moment you walk in the door. It has a relaxed and warm ambiance. the furniture is tasteful and comfortable and you need not keep children off it. The bedrooms are very comfortable, with a king bed, 2 queen beds, and bunks beds, all made with high count cotten sheets. If you fear the cold, there are plenty of blankets and extra pillows too. The home has 3 large flat screen TVs and internet connection. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner. We especially like the waffle maker and the gallon sized, filled, candy jar! And in the lower level, our grandsons especially love this, there are 5 video games, from PacMan to motor car racing.

The home has a deck and a patio and a front sitting porch. The place is situated to create a feeling of being right in the woods and the many windows keep that feeling in the forefront. It is on a dead end street with little to no traffic.

The host provides local menus, brochures, and guides to the area. He is also there to greet you when you arrive. Mike Handley is a wonderful host. You can tell he loves this home by the pride in which he shows all the features. He is an encellent host and very knowledgable about the area. Further, he is quite accommodating. We have had occasion to change our travel dates and Mike was available right away to do what he could to guarantee our stay. He is just so kind!

If you haven't figurd out my review title by now, let me explain it. For our family, this home, setting, location, and ambiance (all of Massanutten is your playground), this vacation home is perfect. What's why we return here year after year. This place is perfect, so why go anywhere else.

Terrific Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, which includes 3 teenagers, loved this place (the kids especially loved the arcade games!). It was probably the cleanest rental we've ever stayed in--kitchen and bathrooms were spotless; linens, towels, and blankets were clean and smelled good; and the carpets and furniture were clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals, including an assortment of pots and pans, cooking utensils, spices and oils, plenty of dishes and glassware, etc. (The Belgian waffle maker was a hit!) We really appreciated the special touches like bottled water and sodas, a full candy jar, dish and hand soaps and body washes, books and games, extra toothbrushes, and hair dryers, as well as Mike's personal tour of the property with helpful tips on how to use the fireplaces, TVs, and games. All these little things made us feel like were staying at a friend's house. The house is nicely decorated, the furniture is comfortable, and the woodsy view is very relaxing. Another nice little detail: we received our security deposit back within days. Just a great place to stay, and we would rent again the next time we go to Massanutten! -The Smith family
