“Best in the area”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

In an area that has more log cabins than anywhere else in VA, the Cabins at Brookside stand out. The cabins are nicely decorated and the kitchen is well-equipped. Beds are comfortable and everything well cleaned.

Room Tip: We had the big cabin which has a lovely terrace overlooking the brook.

We stayed in Cabin 6 for a mid-summer visit to Shenandoah. We've previously stayed at other mountainside-style cabins, and were impressed with the Brookside. It's simple, clean and well-appointed lodging with easy access (via 211) to hiking in Shenandoah National Park and attractions in downtown Luray. The Cabin 6 layout (two separate bed/bath combos and a separate living room/sitting/eating area) was perfect for setting up a porta-crib in its own room and for hanging out after kid bedtime. Yes, as other reviewers have said, the window ACs are loud, but frankly, AC is often a luxury in cabin settings, so we weren't complaining. Rates during high season are comparable to some hotel rates, but the personal space and home-like feel of the cabin is definitely worth the price.

We traveled with our two-year-old son and stayed in Cabin 7. The website gave the impression that the cabins were quiet and secluded but failed to mention that they are located right on the main highway. Jacuzzi was nice after a long travel and the brook behind the cabin was great for wading with my son, but the perks end there. The decor is outdated, the cabin smelled musty (I sneezed uncontrollably from check-in to check-out), and the bathroom was full of water damage. This is not a place to bring a toddler, as there are just too many tacky nicknacks for them to get a hold of. Overall...overpriced and overrated.

We stayed at Cabin number 3, and it was just lovely. Clean, cozy, romantic, the hot tube was perfect right in the middle of the room. The cabins are very well localized, the breakfast is also very good, we chose the buffet and had a delicious meal. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Would definitively recommend.

We have stayed at the Brookside Cabins on many occasions and, by this time, in most every type cabin of the variety that they offer. The cabins have the rustic exterior but the interiors have a contemporary finish and they are well appointed with comfortable furniture and 'country' decor. I think that most have (gas) fireplaces. All have A/C which you should only need during the real summer months. Several have jacuzzis, one (at least) has a complete kitchen and basic tablewear. Comfortable beds. NO TVs. Rooms can be attended to (or not) each day if desired and fresh towels are delivered each day. There is a small restaurant attached to the property that serves simple, country diner fare but in a very appealing and tasty manner. Often there is a buffet and they make their own bread. The service is very good with honest sincerity dispensed by a local staff who make you feel welcome. It is a popular local gathering point, especially on Sunday. Even though, we have never waited long for a table, if at all. The best part of the location is, of course, the BROOK that became the namesake of the cabins. It runs behind each and every one (some with back decks a bit closer than others) and the sound effect is the perfect background for relaxing, reading, or falling asleep! The times after a big rain are the best for the brook but we have never seen it very dry or not running. The cabins are located right off the main east-west route (VA Rt 211) which makes it convenient but not a place where you could let young children 'go out and play'. It would also be a good place for several familes to share multiple cabins, share kitchens and back deck spaces, etc. We love it there and we'll be going back next month. If you go, say 'hi' to Diane in the gift shop (oh, did I mention the gift and sundries shop?) The town of Luray is a five minute drive and has several good local restaurants as well as the Caverns, the beautiful Carillon, a movie theater, and a thriving local arts and music scene.
