Overview

About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

This classic chalet-style cabin is set back from the street at the end of a court on a beautiful wooded lot... one of the largest in Massanutten. It backs to common space and has ample privacy, yet is minutes from all Massanutten activities and amenities.

The cabin features over 2500 square feet of living space, as well as a wrap around deck and screened in porch. It's a great space for families, small groups, and kids of all ages.

The cabin has three levels of living space, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a well-appointed kitchen, a walk-out basement, rec room with flat screen and Apple TV, a playroom for the kids, a flat driveway (a luxury around here in the winter), screened in porch, and a large wrap-around deck with a propane BBQ grill.

- For the kids - Inside

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, trains, puzzles... etc. So there is plenty to keep even the little ones entertained on a rainy day.

- For the kids - Outside

And if its not a rainy day? We know that families come to Massanutten to enjoy the outdoors, and since our lot has such great outdoor space we wanted to provide some options for the kids right here at the house. We've set up a zip line, low ropes, and balance beam. Don't worry, the zip line and low ropes are VERY low (read: safe)… but we had a kid focus group one day and they all said that it was great fun.

- 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 of exposed beams and the classic chalet-style cabin... Inside we wanted CLEAN (our home ALWAYS will be) and we wanted modern decor and amenities. We offer high speed wireless internet access, a flat-screen TV, Apple TV (Netflix streaming included), and a fully stocked kitchen for all your culinary needs.

- Things to do -

We're located smack in the middle of Massanutten Resort, not more than a couple of 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.

-NOTE- Must be 25 to rent.

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 2014, and have had fun preparing a great space to share with our friends and our guests.

Matt Carrier purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Matt Carrier chose Shenandoah Valley

We love the activities that Massanutten Resort provides, as well as the proximity to the endless opportunities for outdoor recreation in the Shenandoah Valley.

We love the look and feel of this house, but it's the outdoor space that makes it. Many of the lots at Massanutten are on fairly steep slopes and the outdoor space isn't as usable as we would like. We really wanted the kids to be able to play outside, and we knew right away that we could create an outdoor space here that our kids would love. This relatively level lot is one of the biggest in Massanutten, it backs to common space, and the house is set back at the end of a court.

What makes this chalet unique

There are tons of activities at Massanutten Resort and elsewhere in The Valley, but you don't even need to go anywhere to appreciate the outdoors from this home.

If you want to leave the house in the morning and come back at night, then you can stay anywhere. We like this place because our kids don't want to leave... and that means we can be more flexible when planning (or not planning) our days.

Great for a two family weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our needs. We had two families with 4 kids total, and there was space for all of us to be together and also plenty of space for the kids to entertain themselves when we were cooking or getting things ready for the day. The basement full of toys was great when they all woke up in the morning--we couldn't hear a thing. And the zip line and outdoor space was really fun for them to explore. For the adults, sitting in the living room with those giant windows and having a glass of wine after a day of exploring (Luray Caverns, skiing, water park, Monticello...) was the perfect way to relax. The owners were great to deal with before and after. We'll absolutely be back!

Amazing kid friendly home! Perfect weekend for outside fun! Happy faces all around.

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing! We came with three small kids and all of them had a great time. We forgot our pack n play and they actually had one for us to use! The only thing that would be nice would be extra toilet paper and paper towels for the house. Overall great property!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 4 night stay at Massanutten for Kids II. It was absolutely fabulous! The home is very clean and well-kept, and the location within the resort is ideal. The kitchen was fully stocked so we were able to save a lot of money by cooking the majority of our meals at the house. Towels and linens being provided was also a huge bonus. There is plenty of space to spread out and relax, and the views out of the huge wall of windows can't be beat. Our girls, ages 6 and 10, had a blast on the zip line and low ropes course! It was easily the highlight of their trip! In addition, having so many games, puzzles, blocks, and books available not only made packing easier, but gave us lots of quality family time. This home was a perfect spot for our family to reconnect after a 7 month deployment, and we can't wait to come back! Thank you!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family get away. Excellent setup for my two year old. The playroom downstairs was perfect for the rainy days. The indoor water park was only a couple miles away and was one of the highlights of the trip. On the last day the weather was great and we saw three deer in the back yard. My son could not get enough of the zip line in the back yard. We drove to skyline drive (only 15 minutes away) and hiked to a waterfall. Owners were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy the stay. Overall it was a very memorable family trip.

A little something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our Thanksgiving together at this home and it accommodated us all perfectly. Our kids are 6, 5, and 3 years of age and were able to play on the zipline with out much assistance- so it was fun being able to watch them on it through the patio door while sitting in the living room. There is also a nice reading nook that is perfect for kids to play or sleep. One of our guests, who uses a cane, was able to access the home easily and slept comfortably on the entry level. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens were luxurious. The house was clean and well stocked. Matt was a pleasure to work with. He was responsive, accessible, and went above and beyond in ensuring that our stay was everything we wanted it to be. We hope to return to this home again and again. Thanks for having us!
