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 Massanutten

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!

Amazing home!! - look no further - stay here!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was AMAZING! The whole family loved it. Michael has taken great care to make this a great rental. Immaculately clean, super comfortable, beautifully decorated, so cozy and according to my kids "the best place we've ever stayed". The basement is a kids dream. There are arcade games, movies and board games as well as a kids bunk room. He even stocks the fridge with sodas and water which is such a nice touch. Upstairs is warm and comfortable with a gas fireplace and fully stocked kitchen. We enjoyed making waffles in the double waffle maker one morning. That was a hit with the kids. Bedrooms were very roomy with super comfortable beds. We spent a lot of time on the back porch rocking on the porch swing and watching the birds, deer and squirrels. This is an oasis and great weekend getaway. Convenient to the water park and all Massanutten has to offer. It was very centrally located. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks Michael for taking such great care with this rental.

Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

My first impression as I walked in was just about how clean everything was! The house was nicely stocked with many of your grocery basics, and there wasn't any kitchen utensil/appliance that I thought was lacking. We loved the video games downstairs, and my children did watch some movies provided, although the cable package was plenty. Mike is very responsive. We had a power outage due to storms while I was there, and I couldn't get a lighter to work. I contacted Mike, but then the power came back on so I didn't need anything. Mike dropped a brand new lighter off at our door anyway. I definitely felt like I was at a home-away-from-home!

Very comfortable home, with great activities even in bad weather

  • 5 of 5

We particularly enjoyed this property as it is well equiped, offers great indoor activities, is well located and is comfortable. We had a kick of seeing the birds and squirrels at breakfast on the back terrace and enjoyed the BBQ. A great holiday spot (we stayed 2 weeks).

Fantastic and Serene

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and 4 children (ages 4-7) had a wonderful time at Spanky’s! The kids enjoyed the toys, games and watching provided movies on the lower level. We enjoyed grilling steaks and watching the various kinds of wildlife as they visited the back deck bird Feeders! There was plenty of space for family games at the upstairs table. I was amazed at the well equipped kitchen complete with an array of spices, condiments, wraps and foil. This is not like your usual place. Spanky has stocked the place like it’s your own home. What a blessing! There was plenty to do for all ages! We went grass tubing, rode the zip line, drove go carts, found precious gems, went swimming every day, went hiking and played waffle ball. We plan to come again the fall!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the excellent review! Renting our vacation home to families is a lot of work. We are constantly responding to inquiries, doing top to bottom cleaning, maintenance and upgrades, but hearing from great guests like you make it all worth while! Our #1 goal is to provide our guests and families with clean, comfortable accommodations and providing them our knowledge of all the things to see and do here! Thanks again for making our home one of the Premier Homes on the Mountain!!! Hope to see you all this Fall! God bless!

Wonderful, clean, comfortable, fun family vacation home! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week! The home is well-stocked with things other owners either don’t think of or don’t offer, like coffee pods, water, soda, and pool towels. It is clean, comfortable, very well-maintained, and in a great location! We enjoyed being right on the mountain in the middle of all activities, but able to enjoy the privacy and peacefulness that came with a home in a residential neighborhood. The view from the decks is are able to watch the wildlife and just enjoy the peace and quiet in the early morning or after a busy day. Michael was so nice and accommodating! He even checked in with us on Tuesday to make sure that we knew about the 4th of July celebration and fireworks on the slopes. We had an unforgettable vacation and definitely plan to rent this property again! Thank you so much!

A great house, it had everything we needed. A very restful week.

  • 4 of 5

The bathroom upstairs was a little bit awkward. The back deck could use some sunlight. It was fun watching the birds and squirrels though.
