Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chalet in Massanutten - The Scrap Nest

5 bedrooms w/10 beds, 4.5 baths and a 24' x 28' scrapping/crafting room

Please note: During ski season (Dec- March) THE SCRAP NEST is operated as SLOPESIDE, please see VRBO listing # 645238.

“The Scrap Nest” was custom built for us in 2014. It can accommodate 10 scrappers/crafters in 5 bedrooms (10 beds), with 4 ½ baths and over 3,000 sq. ft. of mountain style luxury. Nestled amongst the trees on one of the highest lots at Massanutten, The Scrap Nest provides an amazing degree of privacy as it abuts open space on three sides of the property. Includes private off street parking for 5 cars.

You enter the home through the “Mountain Room” which provides a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the mountain breezes. From the Mountain Room, you will enter into the Great Room with its 20’ high wooden cathedral ceiling, exposed beams and hand-scraped hickory floor. The seating area has a large stone fireplace with a remote activated gas fireplace. Settle into one of the new leather couches and load a DVD to watch your favorite movie on the 46inch HDTV. We have over 220 channels on cable plus hi-speed Wi-Fi. Games, books and movies are also available.

The dining area features a custom built 12’ long farmhouse table made from century-old reclaimed white oak. The table seats 14 comfortably, enabling everyone to enjoy meals together. The spacious kitchen features an open-beamed wood ceiling, rustic hickory cabinets and granite countertops with a tile backsplash. Well lit and fully equipped, the kitchen has ample cookware and utensils to support a large family. The all-new appliances include a smooth top range, side by side refrigerator, Keurig machine, blender and other small appliances. Two of the five bedrooms, “Aspen” and “Vail”, are located on the main level, both with beamed wooden ceilings and furnished with Queen and Twin wrought iron beds. A full bath (connecting to the Vail bedroom) and a powder room are located on this level.

Above the kitchen is the loft, which provides a perfect spot to relax in the comfortable recliner and read a favorite book from the well-stocked bookcase. The cathedral ceilinged master suite is tucked away on this upper level. It contains a Queen sized four poster bed, a wrought iron twin day bed, ceiling fan, 40inch HDTV, DVD player and another recliner. The Master Bedroom's en-suite bath has a claw foot Victorian tub, a separate shower, a granite double sink vanity and oil rubbed bronze fixtures.

The lower level contains a large wood ceilinged scrapbooking room with 10 tables each 6 feet long by 3 feet wide. High quality office chairs with multiple adjustments are provided for every station along with mats, trash cans and individual Ott lamps. A 60 inch HDTV is on one wall and a 55 inch HDTV is in the opposite corner providing everyone a view of the TV. Along the wall is a granite wet bar with a beverage fridge and a Keurig machine. Two bedrooms and two baths (one full, one 3/4) are also located on this level. One bedroom on the lower level has twin beds while the other has a wrought iron Queen bed, a wrought iron twin bed and its own private full bath. A laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer and a utility sink complete this level.

Enjoy the privacy provided by the extensive open space on both sides and the rear of the home on the multiple decks with a large gas grill, picnic table and seating. No smoking or pets allowed anywhere on the property. Families and scrapbooking/crafting groups only. No church or youth groups, parties, receptions, meetings or similar events. The location shown on the VRBO map is slightly off, we are further up on Rainier Rd.

Loved not bringing tables and chairs! Conveyor belt was a blessing! Home has plenty of space to relax. Home also has a kitchen with tons of items you need for meal preps and storage for left overs.

I can't say enough good things about the Scrap Nest. What a wonderful place to stay for a scrapbooking weekend with friends. The house was beautiful, clean and had everything you need other than food. We had the best time. The view was great and the scrap room was perfect. We all can't wait to go back again next year. Couldn't ask for a better place for a weekend scrapbooking get a way!

Wonderful home and great for scrapbookers

  • 5 of 5

My group was very impressed with this house. We had a blast and enjoyed the amenities at the resort also. The waterpark is great and lots of things to do if you need a break from scrapbooking also. the house is very nicely furnished and the scrap room is great! Sleeping arrangements worked out well for all of us. We are definitely coming back next year! Nice restaurants in the area and the food store is only 5 miles from the house.

Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Scrap Nest for a long weekend and it was nothing less than incredible. We have done a few Massanutten rentals but nothing compared to this!

The house is located on a beautiful overlook through the trees to the resort and valley below. Great decks on multiple levels with cool comfortable chairs, a great grill (and clean and working) and a hammock. The overall house is spotless and very clean. Carpets look new and everything was dusted and ready for relaxation and fun. The kitchen was stocked with all kinds of cooking things - everything you need but the food. Great large table to seat your entire group. Overall a great experience and will definitely stay there again.
