We want all of our guests to have an amazing stay so knowing what to expect is essential to allowing us to meet or beat your expectations. :) This house is not perfect and we have many plans to improve it, but until then we'll have the rates low. .
This is a 3 bedroom 1 bathroom house set just outside Harrisonburg, Virginia. It is at the base of the mountain and within walking distance of trails and the George Washington National Forest. It is not perfect yet, it is very cute and we're very pleased with how it looks right now. We are still in the process of making improvements to it (we need to paint some of the rooms and add new carpet or hardwood floors), but it is functional now and it is an inexpensive rental close to the George Washington National Forest and hiking trails and rivers. The house is on a well, which contains a high amount of iron in the water so the water can appear orange at times or smell like iron. The water is completely safe to use for bathing, drinking and cooking.
The kitchen does have mostly new stainless steel appliances. There is a dishwasher. It is older, but fully functional. There is a small eating area in the kitchen with seating for 3. There is a living room and then also a sun room with lots of windows which is perfect for relaxing, reading or watching tv on the 40' flat screen tv (with cable and Blu-Ray player).
There are 3 bedrooms. One with a king size bed, one with a queen bed and one with a full size bed. Sleeps 12 means that is the amount of people we will allow to stay in the house not how many people fit in beds. The bathroom has a shower/tub combo. The house does have central heat and A/C so you'll be able to set the temperature to whatever you'd like. The water is well water and we are working on either getting a new well or treating the water better. The well water has a lot of iron and sulfur in it, so we'd like our guests to be aware of this upfront. The water pressure at times is not the best either, but we're working on fixing that.
4 cars can fit.
The house is only about 75 feet off of the road so there can be noise at times depending on traffic. We don't feel like it is a bother, but wanted to list that here just to make you aware. Also, the house right next door is currently in the beginning stages of being remodeled so it is not pleasant looking at the moment. There is a nice view of the mountains though if you look right over the roof of the house next door which makes up for the remodel view. :) Plus you are within walking distance to trails in the national forest.
This house is not perfect yet, but it is inexpensive for a 3 bedroom house and would be the perfect place for a couple, a family or a group of friends to get together for a weekend or a few days during the week. We do allow small campfires outside in the fire ring, but ask that noise be kept to a minimum so as to not disturb any neighbors. :) If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to ask. We look forward to you staying. Pets are always welcome too. The house does have cable tv, two flat screen tv's, Blu-ray player and free WIFI. Free parking on site for up to three vehicles.
We believe service is what sets us apart in the vacation rental industry. Katie & I personally own every cabin that we manage. We check-in all of our guests personally. We really mean it when we say that we are always available. If you need us or have a problem, please do not ever hesitate to let us know. If something is wrong, we really want to know. We would be honored if you would allow us the opportunity to serve you.
We check-in all of our guests personally upon arrival to show them around the property and answer any questions you might have. Check in time is 4:00 pm until 10 pm and checkout is 11 am. A late fee of $20 an hour for check ins after 10 pm with prior approval.There will be a charge of $30 an hour for guests arriving more than 30 minutes later than the arrival time that they give us on the day of arrival. Arrival times must be sent in the message thread. Reservations may be cancelled with no refund whatsoever if these policies are not followed.
No smoking in the cabin. No beer pong or Hookahs. Noise must kept to a minimum and quiet hours are 9 pm to 9 am.
Guests are required to sign a rental agreement upon arrival and a photo ID. For this reason, the person who makes the reservation has to be the there at the time of check-in, unless the contract is signed and arrangements are made for someone else to check-in in advance.
Pets are welcome but do come with a fee of $49.99, plus tax, for each pet. This is per stay not per night.
This is a cute 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom house with two living room areas, one of which is a nice sun room. The house sits on a private road which has 13 other houses on it. Only half of them have residents though so the neighborhood is relatively quiet with the exception of some road noise at times. We've stayed at this house numerous times and the road is really no bother at all. We are still walking distance to several trails and there is river access right across the road too for fishing, photography or just getting your feet wet. The house is the perfect place to get away and explore the George Washington National Forest. You'll have access to hiking, fishing, scenic walks or drives, museums, civil war battlefields, wineries, breweries, caverns, etc.
There are things you should expect to find, such as spider webs (we clean them for every guest but they do reappear quickly), ladybugs, insects, tiny critters & stink bug(s) during certain times of the year.
All pet fee(s), early check-in or late check-out, firewood or extra person fees are not refundable once paid.
Failure to show up/check in or contact owner before midnight of day of arrival will result in cancellation. Host reserves the right to rebook property if guest does NOT contact owner.
Illegal drugs will not permitted on our properties under any circumstances. Smoking is not permitted inside any house or cabin or on any screen porch. There will be a $750 charge for any smoking in either of these areas. Illegal drugs being used anywhere on the property will result in a $750 charge. Kegs and hookahs are not permitted anywhere on property under any circumstances. There will be a $500 charge should either of these items (kegs or hookahs) be found on the property (this includes outside areas too). If smoking (inside or on screen porches), illegal drugs (meaning what is illegal in Virginia), keg(s), hookah(s) or fireworks (there is a $500 fine for having fireworks or for shooting firearms at a property) are found on the property the guest will be asked to leave and there will be no refund whatsoever for any portion of the stay (including any future days/nights). Guests failing to check-out by 11 am agree to pay $50 an hour for a late check-out beginning at 11:01 am. If the guest is still there at 12:00 noon then then the charge is another $50 and so on with each additional hour the guest overstays their reservation. Late check-outs require prior written permission and applicable late check-out fees to be paid.
