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.

Home away from Hone

  • 5 of 5

I can't sat enough about our stay, it's was simply amazing. Clean, clutter free and under stocked is an UNDERSTATEMENT! The house/property was spotless. The amenities provided (coffee, spices,soft drinks, shampoo....) takes away the stress of traveling and packing. The kitchen was very well stocked and as mentioned in other reviews the waffle maker was a favorite with our family. The upstairs open living space and downstairs game room/family room gave us olenty of room to relax and enjoy the views.

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our finest rental experience we've ever had with VRBO. The owner of this house has gone above and beyond what we have come to expect in vacation rentals. The owner lives nearby and met us at the house. We didn't have to deal with lock boxes and figure out the house ourselves, he just took us through and showed us everything we needed to know. There was no extensive checkout "TO DO" list, he just wanted us to be able to relax. The house was loaded with supplies (including sodas, K-cups, bottled water, etc.). And the house itself is amazing. While there are activities in the area for everyone year round, the house and arcade games itself was enough that we would have had a great time if we hadn't even left. We came in the summer and had a great time at the indoor/outdoor water park, the community pool (which also has bumper cars & go karts), zip lining and horseback riding. Truly a wonderful vacation!

Repeat Guest....Many more to come....

  • 5 of 5

I wrote a review last year and find it hard to say anything more, but....this rental owner knows how to treat the customer and make a home presentable. From the moment you start the process and when you arrive the red carpet is laid out. Chocolates, beverages, everything you would ever need to make a vacation or weekend a perfect experience. I have only known the property owner for two years, but he makes you feel like family. I don't hand out compliments easy, but this property owners does it A++++++. Trust me, you won't regret choosing this home. It is laid out to provide you the best enjoyment for a group and for all ages. Cleanliness is off the chart and the basement is full of Arcade games from PACMAN to Race Car driving games that you used to pay for in the good old days. You might even see a flying squirrel, deer, raccoons or bear. I cannot tell you how much my family enjoyed our stay. The only draw back is that we had to leave. BUT! As Arnold say's "I'll be back".

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Massanutten and we couldn't have been more pleased with this property. The owners clearly take pride in their rental property and ensure that visitors feel welcome and have everything they could possibly need - and I do mean everything. The "extras" that were made it even more special (I won't give them away but they're nice!). The house is immaculate. The beds were super comfortable. The basement was a dream come true for my kids (9 & 11), and I enjoyed my coffee (and cocktails) on the deck enjoying the peace and quiet. The kitchen had everything we needed and more! (We're officially in love w/ the waffle maker!) If you're looking for a great place to spend vacation with family, look no further! This place was amazing!

Home run!! Family summer vacation, July 2016...

  • 4 of 5

At the risk of repeating seemingly every other review here, our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Spanky's Mountain Clubhouse. The location, setting and condition of the house would have been enough to garner a rave here - but Michael's (owner) attention to detail and just doing the 'little bit more' really made our stay here memorable. It is truly like staying in someone's spotless, stocked home - rather than booking a rental unit with little emotional attachment to the property and/or the guests. Quaint enough for quality time with the kids; spacious enough to also have time apart, if/when needed :-). Everything stated in the other reviews is totally accurate, including the timely return of the deposit. This will be the only call we place when we return to Massanutten. We feel truly fortunate to have found Spanky's on our first visit to the area.
