Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8 with some creativity.

This 2010 construction A-Frame is ideal for a couple or small family who want to enjoy Old Rag Mountain, Shenandoah National Park, local Vineyards, Graves Mountain Lodge, Virginia farm country and other local attractions or have otherwise need to visit this area.

Right now the patio project in the corner yard is finished except for the planned Pergola which will require some more engineering. So this patio includes a hot tub and fire pit. There will be evidence of recent excavation & re-seeding up thru July or so.

We re-did the tiny upstairs half bath to include a shower, but I can't get the tile guy to come back. Meanwhile, it's still a usable 'half bath'.

The view of Old Rag from the front porch rivals any view east of West Texas, guaranteed.

The upstairs is one open area with a full size sleep sofa (for 2) and a King that can be separated into 2 twins. A full size sleep sofa is also upstairs and 3 more sleep sofas are downstairs. One is full, one accommodates an adult or 2 kids and the other sleeps one. Most of our guests are a couple or small family, but we have had groups of 6-7 who have to be a bit creative on how they set up.

We have high speed WIFI, DishNetwork satellite TV, propane furnace, central air, washer/dryer, well stocked kitchen namely pots/pans, dishes etc. Plan well like on a camping trip for your food supplies as the nearest supermarket is 13 miles away. (Etlan Store has basics.) We have a gas BBQ grill, and land line phone as there is no cell service in the general area. One bathroom is listed, but there is also a half bath upstairs.

The property is on a 1.2 acre lot attached to the small village of Etlan. The eastern foot of Old Rag is just over a mile across the meadow. Ducard and Sharp Rock vineyards are 3 miles, Graves Lodge 5 miles, White Oak Falls trail is 8 miles and Luray Caverns is 35 minutes.

This is a new listing as of Feb 2016, and we have been pleasantly encouraged to have very steady bookings.

The 2 night minimum is only to satisfy county zoning; otherwise, I don't care...Also, please ignore the crass 'pay now' messages that appear from VRBO until you are ready to book.

Hiking season is in full swing so come on down to Etlan and you are welcome!

About Albert Yowell

My ancestry settled here 250 years ago and the A-Frame sits across the road catty-whompas from the extended family farm.

I fly private jets all over the beautiful USA, so it's always nice to come home to the peaceful view of Old Rag Mountain.

Albert Yowell purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Albert Yowell chose Virginia

For access to the heart of Shenanadoah park, namely Old Rag, White Oak Falls, Graves Lodge, Virginia farm scenery, and local vineyards, the Etlan A-Frame is central.

What makes this chalet unique

The unique physiognomy of the Old Rag skyline is best viewed from right here in Etlan and the small knoll of the Etlan A-Frame.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place to unwind. Very scenic backyard. Quiet. Close to vineyards for wine tasting and close to hiking trails. Shenandoah National Park and Luray Cavarans are about 45 mins away. We stayed at A-frame to do Shenandoah National Park Half Marathon. It was a perfect place to relax after the long run. We are going back there to stay to do hiking and wine tasting next time.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and spacious property with gorgeous views of surrounding farmland, foothills and Old Rag Mtn. Loved our stay and the proximity to Shenandoah National Park. Had a great time repelling, rock climbing, hiking nearby Little Stoney Man and tubing down Shenandoah River. Love sweet little Chumlee the kitty. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Beautiful location in the Shenandoah Valley.

  • 5 of 5

The A frame is perfect for a quiet and restful holiday. Close to many hiking trails and Old Rag mountain. The views from every window are beautiful. My husband and I hiked everyday and then soothed our muscles in the hot tub. We stocked up on groceries at the Food Lion in Madison so we didn't need to go out except to hike in the mountains and then rest, read, and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Great Views, Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home. Clean, quiet and quaint. It has everything you need and the owner is very clear, no surprises. We had our dog and infant son with no problems. The proximity to Old Rag hiking trail is no kore than 10 mins away. There is also an adjancent trail you can bring your dog on. We will be visiting again.
