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 in 2013, 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. Its only a short 5 minute drive to either the ski slopes or 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 and well lit driveway and walkway. Also there is not a lot of steps that our older guests appreciate. Open concept floor plan and located in the middle of the mountain which makes it close to everything!


Car: recommended

Skyline Drive is one of our most exhilarating parks in Shenandoah Valley. The park features beautiful views of the valley as well as it's historical sites. It offers hiking trails, waterfalls, and an array of wildlife. If you're simply looking for a place to find peace and tranquility, Skyline Drive is your place. Families enjoy the photo opportunities that can simply take your breath away.

Stay once and the whole family will want to visit again!!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families with 2 sets of parents and 5 children (ages 2 thru 9) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this fun-filled, every-detail-thought-of "Spanky's Mountain Clubhouse." One child asked if we can please give it "6 stars!" out of 5, and another insisted, "10 stars!"

Mike has thoughtfully created a welcoming retreat. We appreciated the well-stocked and equipped kitchen with high quality appliances, cookware, and dishware all in excellent condition. Also all the basics needed to cook including oil, condiments, spices. A huge help to have paper goods, soaps/detergents, shampoo, etc. No need to run out to the store for random needed items (I think this is the first vacation rental I haven't had to do that!). Plenty of space for all to relax, cook, eat, play, and sleep. Enjoyed coffee on the upper deck in the AM, dozing on the lower deck porch swing in the evening, watching deer and hummingbirds in the woods and feeder.

House is perfectly situated within Massanutten Resort. We enjoyed the indoor portion of the waterpark during the day before check-in, and the next day did pony rides, petting farm, lunch at Campfire Grill (recently opened, good food, nice restaurant - best by far of our limited experience eating out in Resort, highly recommend), then go karts and bungy dome. After check out on Day 3, we returned to the waterpark enjoying both indoor and outdoor areas before heading home.

In between all our activities around the Resort, the kids loved playing the arcade games and foosball in the basement and the littlest ones liked playing with the other toys provided. The adults were refreshingly able to have lots of time for conversation!

Gas grill, bottled water, and sodas were excellent for our summer stay. Family loved waffles both mornings using the double waffle maker. Everything in the house is clearly labelled and even the instruction manual for the waffle maker is easily accessible. Two sets of house keys and a pool pass for the Stonewall Recreation Center pool provided.

Loved the extra special touch of a birthday flag outside the house and birthday hat for the birthday girl!

Everyone is asking when we will get to visit again!

A wonderful weekend at Massanutten!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this property! The host was over the top friendly and inviting and the home is well stocked - more like visiting family than a vacation rental.

Relaxation and fun, with so much more!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for a family gathering! Six of us from 3 generations met at this cabin in Virginia. The kids loved the games and videos. Several of us enjoyed morning walks and we all appreciated the many amenities; comfy beds, sprawling decks, snacks and drinks and fully stocked kitchen and baths. Mike is a great host. Highly recommended!

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

What can I say that hasn't already been said in every other review written about this wonderful place. First of all it is very warm and welcoming. When you walk in the door you immediately feel at home. My family of 5 (3 adults and 2 children ages 9 and 12) stayed here when we attended Family Weekend at JMU. Because of all the college activities, we were not able to spend as much time at the house as we would have liked. Every imaginable need has been met from toothbrushes, choice of shower gels and makeup remover cloths to K-cups, soft drinks and even a jar of mini-candy bars. The arcade games in the family room were a big hit with the kids and also a couple of the adults!! And did I mention that the entire house is SPOTLESS!! There are so many things to do here that we didn't have time for, that everyone definitely wants to return so we can enjoy all the activities that Spanky's Mtn. Clubhouse has to offer. Mike was so very helpful and considerate. He really wants his guests to enjoy their time spent here. We are looking forward to returning to Spanky's in the near future. Thanks Mike and Staci.

I can't say enough good things about this place nor can I think of anything the friendly owner has neglected. Immaculately clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen and bathrooms are well-stocked with basics and the beds are comfortable. Two beautiful decks overlooking the woods at the back of the house are perfect for enjoying morning coffee, a meal and watching wildlife. The age range of our group of six was 57 to 83, but there are plenty of things to keep kids entertained. Everyone in our party raved about the place. Highest recommendation.

This was our 4th or 5th year!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is the best of the best! From the time you arrive until departure, your experience is om par with royalty. This guy lays out the red carpet and you don't need anything. The house is stocked and cleaned the best you will ever find bar none! Everything is operational and in order! The stay itself is scenic and quiet! I work an extremely fast paced job and stress at a level to take years off your life, but this place adds back some time to the clock of life. I guarantee that you will enjoy this home and walk away refreshed! We have been here now for four or five years and now the owner is like family to me. You will not find a host that treats a customer any better than here. I only wish I could have stayed for weeks!
