Accessible features are throughout this 960 sf log cabin, including an access ramp and oversized door openings. Built in 2015, as a rental cabin, Sycamore Landing is perched on a solid concrete foundation high above the river, due to flood zone requirements. This one story cabin has one bathroom, two queen sized bedrooms and a sleep sofa for a maximum of 6 guests. We have a well with a whole house water filtration and sanitizer system and an 80 gallon hot water heater so you won't run out of water. We are dog friendly. There is 320 sf of covered deck overlooking the river, and an additional 500 sf of open deck with a gas BBQ, dining options, hot tub and wonderful views on the side and front of the cabin. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full size gas range, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, belgian waffle maker, panini press, coffee maker, crock pot, mixer and other small appliances. There is a large selection of pots, pans, bake ware and dishes. Fishing, tubing and canoeing/kayaking to the site from a nearby river access point and with local outfitters makes your water adventures come right to the lot. Tubes available on site. Fish in your own front yard. You are surrounded by numerous caverns with ones in Luray and New Market being the closest.

The area boasts lots for all family members to enjoy; golf, hiking, antiquing, waterpark, winter sports, Civil War area to name a few.(The Owner will forward an extensive list for you to use in planning your trip upon reservation.) Enjoy the melodious sound of the C&S RR as it passes by the cabin along with the sounds of nature. If it rains you will enjoy listening to the rain drops on the metal roof. If you are lucky you may see one of the bald eagles in the area from the deck. A large TV, local TV stations, DVDs/VCRs featuring old movies and TV shows are all there for your use. We have built Sycamore Landing to the standards we want when we travel and know you will enjoy your stay here in Page County, hopefully it will be with us.

About Alison Lyons and Jeff Ecroyd

Built in 2014 and opening in 2015, we built this log home to provide a place to relax, reflect and refresh from hectic lives and to enjoy all the wonderful activities here in Page County and the Shenandoah Valley. We retired in 2013 to a property that is 1 mile from Sycamore Landing, a cabin in the woods which initially served as our weekend get away. Sycamore Landing was built with the renter in mind but with the express purpose of being accessible for disabled veterans and veterans in medical care. The cabin is owned by a retire disabled USAF MSGT and his retired Engineer wife who spent her career in commercial construction retiring as a Project Manager. We have both lived overseas and travelled extensively in the USA. We want you to enjoy your stay so if we can help you please let us know.

We offer discounts to all Retired, Honorably Discharged and Active Duty Military. Disabled Veterans may qualify for additional discounts.

Fantastic cottage! A great place to get away.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with our two dogs at this wonderful cabin. The owners responded quickly to any questions and did an amazing job providing information on the surrounding area personalized to our activities. The cabin was immaculate and had everything we needed for our stay. The porch and hot tub offered a great place to relax after long days in the park. Thank you Alison and Jeff! We would definitely like to return to your cabin.

The cabin is a perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a quaint, beautiful place and they have thought of everything you'd need for your stay. The owners are very responsive and helpful throughout the stay. There's riverfront property to sit and enjoy and tubes and cornhole and plenty of things for enjoyong the outdoors. Cute lights and candles add a nice touch. The hot tub is a good way to unwind. We are already planning our trip back. 5 stars for Sycamore Landing!

Perfect JMU Graduation Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect in so many ways! We rented this home for my stepsons graduation from JMU. The owners were so friendly and wonderful to communicate with. They went above and beyond and left treats for out dog, local jam and JMU cups for us. The home layout and every aspect was well thought out and every detail was just perfect. Although the weather was very rainy, we still throughly enjoyed our stay. We would've liked to have been able to use the tubes etc.. but the Shenandoah flooded from all of the rain. The beds were very comfortable and the home was perfect for the 5 of us and our dog. We really appreciated being sent the list of things to do. We went horseback riding at Mountain top ranch and ate at many of the recommended restaurants. We were pleased with all of them. This home is on such a beautiful setting and had everything that we could have needed, including rain ponchos and umbrellas. As a vacation rental home owner myself, I must say that the owners payed attention to every detail and thought of every need that a guest may have. We cannot thank them enough for opening up this beautiful home! Thank you!!! We wish that we would have found this place sooner because we would've spent more weekends there while visiting JMU. I highly recommend this property!

Peaceful accomodations in the most gorgeous setting along the Shenandoah River

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed 4 relaxing days at Sycamore Landing as part of Spring Break 2017. We had an awesome time with our two kids and Portuguese Water Dog. It was fantastic to include the dog! The cabin is the nicest rental property we have ever stayed in, including some multi-family mansions at OBX. The owners thought of everything which meant we had to worry about nothing. We enjoyed cooking in the firepit (meals and s'mores), fishing (caught bass and catfish in a local pond), hiking on Skyline Drive and just being away from home where we would never relax. Thanks for a great getaway Allison and Jeff.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in this lovely little cabin and it was everything we could have hoped for - and more! Our boys loved spending the days playing by the river, playing games on the huge front lawn and inter-tubing in the river. My husband and I enjoyed a glass of wine in the hot tub every night under the stars. Our dogs loved how comfortable we could be with them there. All of us enjoyed hiking through the Shenandoah which was so easily close!

The house had every amenity that we could have ever wanted. And we felt so very welcome from the minute we walked in the door. All and all, there's nothing negative that I can say other than that I wish we could have stayed longer!

A wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

It was my birthday getaway weekend. Thanks Alison and Jeff for making my birthday getaway more special with all of the decorations and special notes.

The cabin is fantastic, very spacious and clean. The kitchen stocked with everything more than we needed. The bathroom was beautiful, cleaned and has plenty of towels. There were plenty of tubes and games. Our dog really enjoyed swimming in the river. The views from the desk was fantastic. We would highly recommend this cabin.

Thanks again Alison and Jeff,

From Jed, Roger and Leo
