Our first review! Sarah's house is a beautiful, recently-renovated hidden gem near the Shenandoah national park. It's spacious yet cozy for our group of 7. We really enjoyed our time there. Highly recommended for any groups who are in town for a weekend of hiking. Did I mention that there is a pond within their 8-acre compound? A lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of city life just by itself! John from New York City, NY.

Beautiful country house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in the country cottage. The home itself is very charming. We spent a lot of time indoors since the land the home is on is a little sloping. It is a great base to do day trips but in the immediate vicinity we did not have a lot of activities for our young children.
