Overall very nice and comfortable. Easy 20 min drive into Shenandoah Park. Lovely hot tub, long walk to river, and lots of movies to watch! Appreciated the wifi. Bring olive oil if you plan to cook at all since there is none in the house. Front storm door doesn't close right. Great that there are canoes, but river current was way too fast to actually consider canoeing, and anyway how would you ever get back since you can't row against that strong current? Maybe at times the current is more calm? I wish this had been made clear, along with a recommendation of where one would use the nicely provided bikes? Very pleasant stay for a group (we were 6). Enjoyed it and would return if in the area.
A good cabin in a great location. Warm and welcoming. Spacious with two bathrooms one with a bath. Great garden leading down to the river. Plenty of wood for campfire. Would like to visit in a different season. Seating in lounge not particularly comfortable for relaxing. Needs more saucepans and cookware for smaller parties. This did not detract from a good stay.

This was the second time my fiancee and I stayed at Bear Meadows and again we had a great time. The cabin was clean and stocked with sheets and towels. The hot tub was perfect and ready to go when we got there. The cabin location is perfect as it is very close to a large group of wineries in Front Royal to the north also close to the Luray Caverns to the south. Highly recommend!
We actually stayed at this property in June of 2013. It was very easy to arrange for this rental and the owners were quick to respond to our questions.
We enjoyed most of the amenities but hardly used the game room as the weather was perfect and the river was calling us.The river had a small bank that my children loved to play on. We fished and swam and just generally enjoyed the nature's bounty.
The house fit our needs for the week we were there but I do agree with other reviews that the beds were very uncomfortable...hence the 4 stars instead of 5. If the owners would change the beds and linens,this rental would be darn near perfect.
