House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
We have owned our Massanutten Resort home since 2004 and have a long list of rental guests who return to us each year!
Owner purchased this House in 2004
Why Owner chose McGaheysville
We specifically wanted a vacation home that we could walk to/home from the ski slopes. There are NOT many private homes with this TRUE, walk-to-the-slopes location.
What makes this House unique
SAVE MONEY by being able to walk back 'home' instead of standing in long lines and buying expensive ski lodge food!
NO pets. Neighbors will alert us of violations.
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Due to allergy issues, we cannot make any exceptions to our no-per policy.

Beautiful Mountain Retreat
Good communication from owner. Clean and well-equipped for all your needs. Great location for all Massanutten amenities.
It was a pleasure to host you, and your family!
Location was great and it was a quiet and beautiful stay
Thank you Kari. We enjoyed hosting your family; best wishes to your son!
Pros: The house was just the right size for our family of 9. It was clean, comfy, the sofa was perfect and cozy. The queen size beds were super comfy. The kids love the bunk beds. Janet was super nice and very responsive, We had frequent visits a day of deers. The kids loved it, cable TV in every room although we didn't use them.
Cons: The hill and stairs up to the house, a little difficult for us. Our mini bus was difficult to go up and down the hill. The first floor bathroom. A bit small, huge con, we couldn't stay longer.
Accuracy of online listing is correct but does not report comfort details. Property communications were available with the owner, but were difficult…an incident example is: they put in new Wi-Fi equipment the weekend prior to our arrival but did not complete set-up with the service company. In communications the owner implied we were not properly following her Wi-Fi instructions. It wasn’t until we sent graphic proof of the situation, before she stopped telling us to follow her instructions on the refrigerator. After we went through all the lengthy trouble between her Wi-Fi service company and us (they were super, by the way) we finally completed the Wi-Fi setup for the owner and the owner did not even thank us. The house is in need of repair in many areas and all floors squeaked the entire time during our visit. Bunk bed springs squeaked and interferred with sleep for everyone in the house because the noise was so loud. The ice maker was not fully functional. They did provide two ice trays but that was perceived as a band-aid for faulty equipment. Also, this house is not kid friendly for physically activities. Light bulbs were out in two locations. Owners had stayed there the weekend before us…one would think light bulbs could at least have been changed. While we did get our entire deposit returned, we took MANY photos so we could not be blamed for the broken door, broken blind slat, broken window, ripped-up futon, etc. Mattresses were good. The Massanutten Resort Area is 5-star. The six visiting deer were delightful to watch. Would suggest rental in that area, but we would not rent this house again.
Kathy, I have numerous reviews from guests who have attested to our responsiveness in a positive manner. In fact I responded within 30 minutes of your first email, which stated that you were "very concerned for your security" simply because you could not locate the second set of house keys. I found you to be overly dramatic. And the guest who stayed immediately after you (like so many others), gave us a great review.
The WiFi was literally corrected within 4 hours of you notifying us, and your description of the events is inaccurate. Additionally, Comcast had to contact me 3 times, asking me for help because you kept hanging up on them; you insisted that the representative calling was soliciting you.
Furthermore, I chose not to review you as a guest because unlike so many of our guests, I did not have a positive interaction with you. There is no issue with the ice maker. Yes, many houses have some floor squeaks. Your need to take pictures of lightbulbs out, a small rip in the futon and 1 broken slat of the mini blinds further speaks to the drama I referenced earlier.
Great for family of five
We had a wonderful time. The house was just as described. Check-in and check-out were super easy. Our family loved watching movies and snuggling on the huge sofa.
Nice small house in the woods. Close to everything there is to do in resort. Abundant wildlife viewing. Will stay here again.
