Ideally located close to Harrisonburg, Massanutten, Luray, and National Park. this pristine 2 bed/2 bath Riverfront Cottage with separate upper and lower levels has everything you need for a peaceful and relaxing getaway. Each bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed, a spacious family room with a full-size sleeper sofa, TV/DVD player w/ ample movie selections, a fully equipped kitchen (w/ new stove and microwave), and stunning views right on the banks of the Shenandoah River.

The space
The large elevated deck provides a great, expansive view of the river and lower riverfront lot. A country swing is provided on the lower patio for your relaxation. The main level and lower level each allow for separate private living space accessible only from the outside. This makes the cottage ideal for couples, teens, or other guests that prefer additional privacy. There's no wifi so guests can truly disconnect and enjoy the outdoors (although cell coverage is really good).

From the main house and lot, you simply have to cross the country road to enjoy one of the only riverfront properties with 2 adjoining lots on the Shenandoah River. There, you will have ample room to spread out relax with easy access to the river. If you want to enjoy even more of the outdoor beauty, pitch a tent alongside the riverbank, while listening to the subtle sounds of the rolling rapids, or just roast marshmallows by the fire pit. Fishing is plentiful anywhere along the river. There is a public landing and parking near the bridge just upriver allowing for an enjoyable float trip back down to the property.

River Nest is centrally located between the towns of Shenandoah and Stanley, each only a short 10- minute drive, 15 miles to both Massanutten Ski & Indoor/Outdoor Water Park Resort and historic Luray featuring Luray Caverns. There are also many wineries, Breweries, Golf, and Antiquing in the nearby towns.

Location

Stanley, Virginia, United States

Centrally located between the towns of Shenandoah and Stanley, each only a short 10- minute drive, 15 miles to both Massanutten Ski & Indoor/Outdoor Water Park Resort and historic Luray featuring Luray Caverns. There are also many wineries, Breweries, Golf and Antiquing in the nearby towns. The back of cottage is in view of the historic Norfolk Southern railroad so don't be surprised with the occasional freight train passing by without a whistle approximately 4 or 5 times per day and night.

Like all properties along the Shenandoah, all lots and homes are privately owned. Renters and guests should only enter/exit the river from the rental property or public landings.
