This was our 2nd summer here and each time it is so hard to leave. This year we stayed in Mother Goose and it is perfect. Plenty of room, great little kitchenette, very comfy beds and sofa. Plus, the enormous windows provide a spectacular view of the mountains and river, even when it's raining. The upper deck is a great... More

This summer we visited the Gander Island Cabins for the second time, the first being last year. We loved it just as much this time around. We were a group of six friends and we reserved the Gander Cabin, which out of the three is furthest to the right. We were right next to a large field in which we... More

We were looking to spend four nights in the Shenandoah region as part of a larger Virginia vacation, and we wanted a cabin. A random Google search somehow led us to Gander Island Cabins, and wow are we glad it did! We booked the Mother Goose cabin, which was gorgeous, spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, and had more than enough room... More

My husband (and the dogs) wanted just a quite, romantic weekend and this was the perfect location. The cabin is so cozy! It was raining most of the weekend so we didn't get off the property but that was okay. The dogs loved all the room to run around, the sound of the river was so soothing, and the hot... More

I booked this cabin for a long weekend trip for my wife, son, and myself. I was somewhat familiar with the Luray area and had an idea of where we wanted to stay, but I did not know about these cabins. After staying the weekend I can absolutely say that we made the right choice. The Goose Cabin was perfect... More

This cabin provided the perfect retreat for me and my husband to get away for a couple of days. It was the perfect mix of rustic and modern as well as close to everything, while still quiet and serene. Lisa was very easy to get in touch with before we stayed and answered all of my questions.

I spent this past weekend at one of the cabins with friends, there were six of us and a pug in all. We LOVED it and are already talking about coming back next summer. There is plenty of space to run around and play volleyball, frisbee, etc. There was great stargazing at night, and we loved that the water was... More
