We just finished our stay at Old Wagon Ridge and it was great. Weather was perfect and the view was lovely. The cabin was clean and it had everything we needed to cook great meals and relax. Would highly recommend this place for people looking to get away (2 hours from DC) for a little hiking, biking and fun on the Shenandoah River. Thanks, Eric W

My family and I recently stayed at the Mountain_Roots_Lodge for 4 days and had an absolutely wonderful time! Being the last house before the entrance to the Shenandoah National Park, we had plenty of privacy. Accommodations were very clean, comfortable and the location was ideal. The town of Stanley was just a few miles away if one needs to get provisions, and most attractions were just an hour away. This facility is pet friendly! Our 2 dogs too had a great time exploring the surroundings and leading us on the trails! The pristine air, serene surroundings, the quaint peaceful noise coming from the forest...there is plenty of positive energy in this place that one cant seem to get enough of! Susan, the landlady, was an absolute sweetheart! She was there to receive us, ensured we were comfortable and saw us off on our way back home! It felt like we were visiting family! My favorite part of the day was sipping my morning coffee on the deck watching the spectacular view of the mountains, lush green forest and rolling clouds in front of me! Shenandoah Valley is breathtaking! The tall tall trees, the lush green forest, the spectacular waterfalls...they all come together magically, and literally make you forget the hardship of the trails one needs to traverse! And Skyline Drive! And the outlooks! Two words...jaw dropping! Yes, one cant drive faster than 35mph, but the views and the drive itself is simply marvelous! And finally, to quote the legend John Denver... the blue ridge mountains, Shenandoah river...yes, almost heaven! Cheers! Satish & family

We enjoyed our visit! We loved the proximity to and the trails around the Lake. Our location was very good to everything that we wanted to do. The house was very clean and we loved spending time on the front porch and enjoyed all of the wildlife around. Overall everything suited our needs. There were two things that were not so great the shower in the upstairs was very small but the hot water was great! We are also not used to squeaky wood floors. Thanks so much! Betsy

We all had a great vacation in Mountain View Haven. It was a plan B trip for my parents 50th anniversary... and it was the perfect trip during a pandemic. The house was beautiful and comfortable, and the views and river access were great too. The location of the house was perfect... riverfront and secluded while still an easy drive to stores and other necessities. Being a bit of a bird nerd I loved the bird feeders and hummingbird feeder right outside the back window. Just a note - there is thought that the red dyed hummingbird food might be harmful to them. It might be worth looking for the clear nectar with no dye. I dont have anything really negative to say. The shower head in the hall bathroom was not great, but we managed. We found out the barbed wire on the goat fence was electrified when my dogs nose touched it. Hes totally fine, no big deal... but might be worth a little more signage so a kid doesnt touch it. We really enjoyed our stay, and the staff we spoke to were all so friendly and helpful. We look forward to renting from you again! Beth

Hi -- the Stone House is an amazing treasure of a place to stay along the beautiful Shenandoah River. Everything was perfect inside and out. The home has so much historical charm, is very comfortable and well appointed, and obviously very well maintained. The property and surrounding area is simply stunning. My boys and I had a great time playing in the spacious yard, barbecuing, smores over the fire, kayaking, fishing and bonding in Gods country. We will definitely return. And the staff at All Star Lodging are phenomenal, with exceptional customer service! Thank you! Bill

What a beautiful and relaxing place! We had such a good time on our well needed vacation. The cabin was even better than expected, sooo clean and everything here we needed. We hope to be back someday and will highly recommend it to everyone! Left you some paper towels, dish soap and bathroom tissue, laid them on the bed. Shirley and James

We had a wonderful time at Mountain Top Retreat! It was plenty spacious and had so many neat amenities. The views were absolutely breath-taking. We enjoyed playing corn hole and cards many nights. We spent a lot of time just enjoying the views. We saw many deer and a bear cub. We went to Luray Caverns and hiked Storybrook trail and the little nature trail on site. Very clean and plenty to keep you entertained. Do not go with the thought that the WiFi will be good enough to do much of anything with, it was spotty at best. An absolutely wonderful stay and we will probably look into renting it again in the fall. Sara & Michele

My girlfriend and I stayed here for an away weekend and had a great time. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the property owner, Susan, who is so nice and accommodating. She lives upstairs, but you are given peace and quiet with the whole middle level of the house to yourself. The place was very cozy and comfortable, despite being a little dated. There were some bugs here and there (but thats to be expected with a house in the woods). The property is really great. We walked around some, and went on a short hiking trail next to the property. There is also a park access road steps away, that takes you to the main hiking in the park. The best part, though, was the view! It really is fantastic, and the pictures dont do it justice to be honest. Even though it rained for a couple days we were there, the views of the mist over the mountains were amazing. This was definitely our favorite part and worth the trip - just hanging on the back deck with a book, coffee or beer, and taking in the view

This is a beautiful property, one of the best we have stayed at in the Shenandoah Valley area. The stone house is very modern, spacious, and clean. Lots of space to stretch out. Master bedroom has a huge, comfortable bed (tough to find in many VA rentals, IMO). There is even a well-equipped game room in the garage. The grounds really are a high point. Beautiful view of the Shenandoah Mountains, a nice fire pit, a nearby brook, and lots of green space to stroll. We continuously encountered deer and rabbits. Our dog absolutely loved it. Also only about 30 minutes from two entrances to Shenandoah National Park (Thornton Gap and Swift Run) for those interested in hiking or exploring Skyline Drive. Andrew

Wow! What an amazing place! We had a very underwhelming experience renting a place in Luray a few years ago and were hesitant to try again. The Willow Bend Stone Cottage was everything wed hoped for and then some. The pictures on the website do not do this place justice. Everything was clean and up to date, the beds were comfortable, and the back yard was amazing (definitely the star of the show). Do yourself a favor, make reservations and thank me later. Jason

My boyfriend, dog, and I stayed at Love and Dreams in Luray, VA over the July 4th holiday weekend. Prior to arriving we saw mixed reviews and so our expectations were mixed. We ended up having a blast and really enjoyed the place. There is not a breath taking view like other options you might happen upon, however you are situated in the woods surrounded by nature; its incredibly peaceful. We loved the fire pit and used it every night for smores, campfire cooking, or just for fun. It got cool enough at night to enjoy the fire. The AC works really well, so even if youre there in the crazy heat you can find reprieve. The bed was really comfortable, and there was plenty of space for us all! The kitchen was equipped with pots, pans, cutlery, leftover items from prior guests (including spices, soap), coffee maker, wine glasses, and other gadgets that might come in handy. If you do wind up needing something else, theres a Walmart located about a 5 minute drive away! The check-in procedure suggests bringing your own coal, but the grill is gas run and when we arrived a decently full gas tank was there, likely left over from a previous guest. Similarly the company recommends bringing firewood, which we did end up going to buy due to eventual laziness; but theres also plenty of wood surrounding the property that we collected to fuel our fires. Similarly to prior guests, we were able to use sofa cushions to black out the roof-window in the bedroom; it worked out nicely. Im a really light sleeper and slept in past 6:30 am for the first time in months here :). The cabin is located around many awesome trailheads that are in reasonable driving distance. A Skyline Drive entrance is also not too far (~40minutes). Given COVID-19 we didnt explore restaurants/breweries/wineries; we kept it simple with just outdoor hiking and staying in. We used every amenity we could, from the grill and fire pit to the hot tub. Everything was really enjoyable! If youre looking for a comfortable cabin experience in the VA mountains that also wont totally break the bank, Love and Dreams will satisfy your needs!

Our host was very kind and greeted us upon arrival. The house and property is very dog friendly as well as providing enough space for outdoor activities (i.e. yard games). The fire pit was an awesome touch as most cabin property is completely down hill. The location was further than expected from the entrances to Shenandoah National Park, but good proximity to Luray and the Shenandoah River. Though it was just the two of us and a dog, there would be plenty of seating for a larger party. The space could use some updates, but still covered our needs. Overall, great time & stay Holly

We had a a wonderful visit to Luray and Shenandoah National Park. The River, the Mountains and the caverns are all right there. Thank you Allstar for your engagement through out the process. The check in correspondence was timely but not overly so to be burdensome. And thank you for the heads up on the washed out side of Grand View road, very helpful. Its Owl Good was a delightful cabin for our visit. We enjoy our cooking and all the neccessay cook ware was there. Though the knives in the tupperware bin over the fridge took a little searching for. Having both a gas grill and charcoal grill was very nice to use and then to sit on the deck and watch the sun set was just so delightful. Amazing vista. Our time there was not only fun, with lots to do, but also relaxing and peaceful. Thank you again. Bradford

Our group consisted of six adults, who have all enjoyed camping and canoeing the Shenandoah in the past. As we have gotten older, sleeping in a tent is not as enjoyable as it once was. We still wanted a rustic outdoors experience though. The River Escape Cabin was perfect. Secluded, near the river, fire pit/ fireplace, a tire swing, hot tub, but with all the comforts of home like a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, linens, towels, two showers, and even some books and games. The rough hewn timber framing, sectional couch and floor to ceiling windows in the sitting room gives a very comfortable way to enjoy the views of nature. Everyone had a wonderful weekend and we would absolutely stay at the cabin again. Jackson

Our stay was fabulous. The house and property were beautiful. We could have stayed there the hole time and just enjoyed the property but we had made some plans to do some other things. It was great for our dogs to be left to just run and get some exercise. We were even able to meet the owner and found out some things about our heritage that we did not know. The only thing I would suggest (and this is not a complaint) is that the vacuum be replaced or cleaned or checked. It would not suck up anything that was on the carpet unless you used the attachment. I tried really hard to clean up dog hair from my dogs and it was difficult. I really have nothing to complain about. Wish we could have stayed longer. I am very please with the confirmation calls that we received and answers to all of our questions. Thank you all for great service, I will definitely recommend you and use you again. Stephanie

Thank you for your email, and thank you for allowing us to rent the cabin! Please feel free to share my comments below, as I want folks to understand how truly wonderful the cabin was! We had the best time! I rented the cabin for two nights, as that Sunday was the 3 year anniversary of my husband suddenly passing. My daughters, who came with me are 25 and 15. My oldest also has a 4 month baby. We also brought my aunt and of course the pups. Our dogs, who are 11 and 9, have had to make a major adjustment moving from a house with a big yard into an apartment close to the city. As soon as we arrived, they both jumped out of the car and went immediately to the pond for a swim. They were in heaven! At one point, one of the dogs realized there were fish in the pond and he has a major prey drive. Hed sit on the dock and just watch the water tracking. At one point on Saturday we went outside to find him in the little boat, happy and content! I was sneaky and did not tell the girls there wasnt wifi until we got there They griped at first, but soon realized the joys of putting away the phones! On Saturday, my parents and sister/kids stopped by (they live about 45 minutes away)for dinner. We also released butterflies to remember my husband and it was the perfect setting. The cabin was clean, and so spacious. The girls loved the attic area. I will definitely keep this cabin in mind for future needs, and hope to do some kind of family reunion there. It is nice to get away with o much space and remember what family and relaxation is all about. Thank you for allowing us the beautiful cabin!

Dear Allstar Lodging, We cant begin to say just how pleased we were with our stay at a cozy cabin in Luray, VA. The cabin and accommodations exceeded our expectations. The cabin was very clean, had all needed amenities and was of course very cozy. We will definitely rent this cabin again when we are coming that way.

This place was fantastic for our group. The location was very convenient to grocery and all the activities we were looking for. There are several kayak rentals within 30 min and same goes for an entrance to the Shenandoah National Parks skyline drive. The house itself was cozy and provided everything we needed. The fully stocked kitchen was a huge plus since we usually bring some of our own cookware just in case a house isnt as fully stocked as promised - this was not an issue at this place! The backyard was a great setup as well for smores and group games. Will definitely be back if we are looking to stay in this area again!
