Most furnishings in the house are new. There's a gas fireplace inside and a large fire pit and area outside for those night campfires and star gazing. There's also a charcoal grill for your use. Enjoy sitting on the deck taking in the sun and sounds of wildlife and canoeing on the river. A canoe is provided. (there are 2 adult one child life vest provided) A private graveled path leads through the yard to the river where you can fish, swim, tube or just relax and take in the scenery. Wildlife abounds in the area. Many deer and turkey frequent the area as well as all kinds of songbirds. You may even get to see the eagles that nest nearby! Our famous Luray Caverns is just 10 minutes away as is its golf course. Locally there are shopping centers which contain a Walmart, Food Lion and a Smart Shopper for your grocery needs. There are many antique stores and shops in town to browse through. In the summer months there are wonderful farmers markets which have fresh fruits and vegetables locally grown. Only 13.7 miles from the property is our wonderful Shenandoah National Park where you can enjoy a leisurely drive across the park stopping along the overlooks and looking upon our beautiful Shenandoah Valley! You can see the Skyline Drive from the property in fact. Hiking, picnicking, trail rides and beautiful views and activities for adults and children alike. This riverfront cabin with all its amenities and charm will be sure to fit your needs for getting away from it all and de stressing. Remember, we are in the country..the road to the cabin is gravel and there are insects out and about in the warm months..In the winter months we do get snow and ice so keep that in mind if booking during the winter months .We love our cabin on the river and hope you will enjoy it as much as we have. We look forward to you being our guests. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 42-1620487More
