We had a lovely time at Woodland Magic for our Thanksgiving get away with our adult children and 3 dogs! Very comfortable- great layout- superb hot tub! Loved our seclusion in the woods with lots of property for the dogs to run! Perfect for us! Thank you! Maureen

This place is the perfect woodsy getaway for your family and pup. We chose this place for its proximity to river tubing and dog friendliness. The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and the living room is cozy and comfy. We enjoyed eating out on the deck and getting in the hot tub on chillier nights. The furniture and decorations are a little dated, but the house was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. We didnt mind! We would recommend this place to any group of friends or family!

The hot tub was my first priority in looking for a place to get away. The covered pavilion over the Jacuzzi made it possible to enjoy comfortably in February! The indoor fireplace was perfect for relaxing in between dips. The kitchen was stocked with wares to cook and everything just felt like a real home, like you had everything you needed to be cozy. This retreat is really a gem. Once I booked, I realized Lurray Caverns were nearby and it was BREATHTAKING. Just a wonderful trip from start to finish. You WILL need a 4wd vehicle to make it into the gravel road and driveway. Ali

This cabin was absolutely perfect for a little getaway for me and my boyfriend! It was close enough to town so that going to get things wasnt an issue, while still being out in nature. The amenities were perfect for a comfy stay, we loved the fully stocked kitchen for cooking together, and the fireplace for late night board games by the fire! We loved that the cabin has everything you need, paper towels, tp, trash bags, linens. We would absolutely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a cozy stay in the Luray area. Jillian

My friend and I spent our weekend at Woodland Magic as a moms weekend away. It was the perfect setting to just relax in the hot tub and enjoy peace and quiet. The house is beautiful and so spacious. There was so much more stuff in the kitchen than we were used to from other AirBNBs and that was a wonderful touch since we cooked everything in save for one lunch out. We would definitely like to come back here again some time with our husbands and kids Lauren

The home was perfect for my wife, pup and me. 1st level of the house air circulation was awesome for the 100 degree weather we experienced. Hence we didnt get the chance to use the fire pit. Location was perfect! Close to the river and 1 minute away from outfitters to rent a kayak. Drive to Shenandoah National Park was about 25-30mins. I would definitely visit again Rhaiz

This house is the perfect getaway into the mountains. There are some houses around but its quiet except for the occasional birds chirping. The beds are comfy, everything was sparkling clean when we arrived, and there are plenty of movies and games to occupy you, because there is no wifi. The outdoor hot tub is a great touch, especially on a chilly night. Great place for a quiet getaway, I would absolutely stay here again!

Well furnished. Great hot tub! Check in and checkout was super easy with the lockbox. Checkout instructions were very thorough and easy to follow; much appreciated. Wraparound porch is a nice feature as is the second floor balcony that we discovered upon arrival. Nice mountain and wooded views. River outfitters closeby. Nice quiet location. We filled out the guest comments book left in the home. Highly recommended. Will definitely consider for another future stay.

We had a fantastic stay. Loved the cabin and it was super quiet and comfy. Thank you for allowing dogs. The weather was not so hot so we went into Luray and toured the caverns and had lunch in a nice restaurant. Later in the day we kayaked a little on the River. I could have started the laundry/sheets before I left, but there was no soap. Otherwise, awesome.

Quiet, beautiful setting. The cabin was very comfortable for six of us including a one year old. It was well furnished with bedding linens, kitchen utensils etc. and games, books, magazines and videos. The deck, hot tub and the outdoor gas grill were enjoyed and much appreciated. Allstar made us feel very welcome and when we discovered we were out of dish washer soap, they were very quick to bring it to us. Great place, great service, and highly recommended.

I booked the cabin for my anniversary and it was AMAZING!!! It was just what we wanted for our weekend get away, private, cozy, and pet friendly. We felt right at home and so did our pup, grilled out, relaxed in the hot tub and sat by the fire and watched Smokey in the Bandit. We already want to book another weekend in January. We look forward to booking this place again real soon. Sharon

Hello! My husband and I stayed at Woodland Magic for one week during September 2012. Our experience there was amazing! We were impressed by the cleanliness of the cabin and the amenities that were offered. Woodland Magic had absolutely everything we needed and more! We are basically newlyweds who never had the opportunity to have a honeymoon so our week at Woodland Magic was our "mini-honeymoon getaway" and we couldnt have asked for or planned a more perfect vacation spot. We were like kids again - roasting hotdogs over the fire and making smores all in the privacy of our semi-secluded backyard! LOVED the hot tub - was SO relaxing. The location was perfect! We were minutes away from Luray, so we went for a drive, taking in the sights and touring the caverns - beautiful! Our only regret? That we hadnt booked a longer visit - will DEFINTELY do so next time! We are looking forward to visiting again. Thank you for making our visit so special. Brenda & Buck

We had such a great time - you made it easy to complete the reservation, get into the house, and leave on time. We ran the Luray 10K and went to the Luray Caverns. Next time we will save some energy to do some more local hiking and such. thanks again! - Rita

I would like to say that I really do appreciate all the effort you put into our last stay at Woodland Magic. I was a wonderful vacation. In fact my family has never stopped talking about the entire experience. The worst part of planning a vacation is all the stress that occurs with the search, reservation and locating of the accommodations for your stay. I have never in the past 7 years of planning holiday and regular vacations found a better staff and facilities then that of All Star Lodging. Again Thank you and again you may quote me. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Christmas-New Years! I would also love to set those reservations in place if you could get me a price on those days please. Thanks again
