Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath RIVER Cabin; MAX of 6 ; Hot Tub & Fully Equiped Kitchen; Pets

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. Both the Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest are nearby for outdoor activities. 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.

CLOSE TO ACTIVITIES: Luray Cavern (caverns, museums, outdoor activities) - Luray - 15.7 miles (19 minutes); Shenandoah River Adventures (tubing, kayaks, canoes) - Shenandoah - 7.1 miles (12 minutes) ; Mountain Top Ranch (Horseback Riding) - Elkton - 12.7 miles (24 minutes)

MILITARY: If you are active duty, honorably discharged or retired military member please let us know as discounts are applied for your service. (proof required)

LAW ENFORCEMENT AND FIRST RESPONDERS: Current and Retired Law Enforcement and First Responders please let us know as discounts are applied for your service. (proof required)

NOTE RATE: We charge a flat fee a night (plus State/Local lodging tax and a new VRBO user fee) for up to 6 guests and your pets. There is no extra cleaning fee and all paper products, linens are included. There is no mandatory security deposit, but you are responsible for any damages.

NOTE: Due to the location, cell phone service varies. Service improves when the leaves are off the tree, as well as varies by vendor.

As of February 2017 we do not have WiFi -due to limited accounts in our area, and no line of sight to any towers. Local computer center has $1/month per person charge for unlimited access and vendor hot spots sometime work.

NOTE TO ALL: VRBO charges a service fee to you, our guests, that we cannot change and have no control of - it is a sliding fee based on the rental rate --it goes from 4-10%.

NOTE SUMMER RENTERS: We can drop off our guests with the tubes provided, a mile upriver and you can enjoy a nice float right to the cabin on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. Just let us know 72 hours prior to you arrival so we can coordinate schedules. For longer runs we offer drop offs and there is a river outfitter in Shenandoah with tubes, kayaks and canoes.

NOTE WINTER RENTERS: Winter Renters, you are off a secondary level State Route (650) that is plowed by VDOT. We live a mile away and have driven an ATV with plow, multiple times, to the cabin last winter during construction/fit-out for access to clear the drive...so if you read reviews of other cabins having difficult winter access, we do not believe you will have any problem at Sycamore Landing - should you be the lucky ones that are there for a snow fall.

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.

Phenomenal

  • 5 of 5

By far one of the nicest places and location I have stayed at within the Shanedoah area. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay memoriable and feel like a second home.

Whole heartedly recommend this place.

Wonderful Valentines day weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our spur-of-the-moment Valentines Day weekend was a complete success. This pet friendly cabin, on the Shenandoah River, was exactly what we were looking for. It was well pointed not just with all the things we needed, but also with the warm personal touches that made us feel like we were renting from friends. We enjoyed our walks along the river and our visit to the quaint town of Shenandoah. That is whenever my wife could get me out of the hot tub. We look forward to a longer stay, in warmer weather, so we can enjoy the river more.

Lovely little cabin where we did a whole lotta nothing

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for long weekend for me, my husband and our two little dogs. The cabin is lovely and has all the amenities you might need (except wifi, but for us, that was a feature, not a bug). Alison and Jeff run the rental VERY professionally. It was clean, well appointed, and all the information you might need to use the cabin's hot tub, kitchen, etc. were at your fingertips. They left us lovely thank you items and letters, including treats for our puppies. I'd 100% come again and recommend to anyone else.

Exceptional -- would definitely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Even before we arrived, Alison and Jeff made sure we had all of the information we needed and offered us early check in and check out. When we arrived, the cabin was amazing and we felt truly special with a welcome message, gift and treats for our two dogs. Everything about the cabin was lovely: Fully stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need, hot tub, huge deck, fire pit, local hiking guides and movies for when we just wanted to relax inside for a bit. I highly recommend this cabin and would definitely stay here again!
