Renovated Mountaintop Cabin With Stunning Panoramic Views near Luray

Family-friendly vacation home with water park and spa tub
Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains directly adjacent to Shenandoah National Park near Luray, Virginia, Point of View Mountain Lodge is a privately owned vacation home that was renovated in 2019. Updates included new kitchen, main bathroom, family room and dining room furniture, floors, HVAC, and fireplace. A second renovation of the deck, bedrooms, and master bathroom was completed in early 2022. This alpine home has spectacular 30 mile mountain views and accommodates up to 7 adults. The large property is private and quiet, yet very accessible—and less than two hours from downtown Washington DC!
 
Perched atop a ridge crest at a 2700-foot elevation, the Lodge offers a spectacular panoramic vista of the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Range. It is within walking distance of the Appalachian Trail, Skyline Drive, several waterfalls, a pond, and the Big Meadows Recreation Area, which features a nature center, a historical stone lodge and tavern, and the Meadow itself. In addition to hiking, the nearby towns of Stanley and Luray offer caving, river rafting, falconry, wineries, horseback riding and antique stores.
 
Child-safe, and wheelchair accessible, the large mountaintop house has something for everyone: the charm of a country cabin, all the comfort and conveniences of home, and the luxuries of a resort. Amenities include a hot tub, pool table/Ping-Pong, fireplace and free Internet, Wi-Fi and the grounds have fruit trees, berry bushes, and diverse wildlife, but it is the scenery and uninterrupted skylines that make it a truly special place.

Please Note: The area of Shenandoah has a lot of stink bugs in the spring, summer, and fall. We have the house exterminated regularly, but there's just no way to keep all bugs outside the house. Please keep the screen doors/windows closed to prevent stink bugs from entering the house.

Mountain Paradise
Group of five adults stayed here while visiting Shenendoah National Park. The view is awesome. When we were at the house we spent most of our time on the new deck, taking in the view and watching the occasional deer that meandered through the yard. Very peaceful here too, if you are looking for a place that feels far removed from the hustle and bustle. Thank you for opening this fabulous home to us. Highly recommend!

4/5 Good

Very nice
We stayed at this home for a week in June. While it met our needs, it wasn't quite what we were expecting (some ways positive, some not so much). Pros: The remodeling was done beautifully. We especially enjoyed the new deck (updated pictures of this are needed, not accurate on the listing). Both bathrooms are nicely redone as well. The bedrooms were adequate size and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was a good size and everything worked well. TV was big (only one in cabin) and the fireplace looked nice, though we never used it. Hot tub was clean, but again we didn't use this. It was nice having the game room beneath the house, this is where the washer and drier are located. Roads getting to the home are nice and easy to navigate. The towns of Stanley and Luray are within reasonable driving distance with the basics. Overall the home was nicely decorated and in good shape. All basic amenities were provided and appreciated. Cons: it is a drive to get to anything. It's nice not being in the middle of a busy area, but it limits your choices for entertainment and food. There is next to no fast food anywhere, but there are several restaurants. The house at first appeared clean, but we had several issues with dishes and cookware being dirty, the fridge was grimy, and I filled a dustpan full of dust, dust bunnies, and dead bugs (at least they were dead) after sweeping up the whole place. The guest bathroom's shower is VERY small and tight, one of my teens refused to use it because she's claustrophobic . There is no central air, but each room has a unit which can be VERY noisy. There were constant mosquitos, which is not atypical for this time of year, but we really couldn't use the yard or explore too much because we kept running into swarms of them. We weren't able to use the game room because it had a very strong smell that made me a bit nauseous. The washer/dryer left our clothes smelling a bit funky, though I REALLY appreciate they were provided. If you have party members that get car sick easily, be sure to drive down the mountain SLOWLY as there are lots of twists and turns. I highly recommend attending a movie at the theater in Luray, the pink one. It is SO unique and fun. It's an old theater that was remodeled, each room a different theme. I also recommend checking out Luray Caverns and the car museum (free with cavern tickets). Dominico Italian Restaurant is GREAT and they give you a lot of food! Shenandoah NP - meh.

Beautiful location, clean and cozy property
My friend group and I stayed here for a long weekend and it was perfect. The view was incredible, and the house was easy to find and check into. The kitchen had the essentials and enough towels for the group. The board and lawn games available were an added bonus. Hot tub was clean and warm. Would recommend!

Great view and new deck!
The view was absolutely amazing to enjoy during our trip. The expanded new deck was a wonderful addition that had just been finished prior to our stay. The house is a very cute remodeled home. We loved the exposed beams and overall size of the home for our family. The gameroom (only accessible from outside) was fun for the kids—we played pool, ping pong, and corn hole during the day we grilled outside—And had s’mores by the fire pit. Side note: Basements can have a must smell so be sure to leave the door open on a nice day to air out a bit while you’re down there. Overall, a wonderful stay!

Relaxing stay in a beautiful location!
My husband and I had a great long weekend trip returning to this place. The new deck is really huge and the view is always amazing. We really enjoy taking a break from DC and staying here.

Bedbugs
It is a great location, fabulous view, & nice enough cabin. After my daughter awoke a few days into our stay with what I believed were bedbug bites did the owner tell us he'd had an exterminator treat for bedbugs a few days before we arrived. And that it wasn't the first bedbug treatment. I hope the reason the dates are blocked for the next few months is that it has been taken off the market until it is confirmed they are gone.

Great Experience & Trip
Loved our recent visit. Views were amazing. We loved seeing the deer from the hot tub. Clean property and easy process. I'm sure we'll be back again in the future.

Perfect Weekend Getaway
We were a group of 7 adults in mid-winter. A lovely living room, kitchen, and dining area really gave us a perfect space to hang out, play games, cook, eat, drink, and relax. The fireplace is gas, which is nice as we didn't have to keep adding wood. The hot tub was absolutely lovely in the cold cold weather. Our only complaint was the fact that water pressure was quite bad in the showers and sink. Otherwise, highly recommended!
