We had a terrific time at the cabin. It was everything we hoped for and more. We will certainly consider this cabin again for another trip! And thank you so much for the call before our check in to see if we had any questions, that was so helpful. Candice

Loved this quiet retreat in the mountains. It was exactly what I was looking for. The place was as described, with a lovely wood burning oven in the living room. Perfect for nights by a fire, and watching the numerous birds in the morning was wonderful. The host was prompt, and I highly recommend it. Racheal

I loved this cabin, secluded is the perfect description. I felt very safe and able to relax in quiet stillness. Unexpectantly, the expertly placed bird/squirrel feeder in front of the floor to ceiling window was one of my favorite touches. I was surprised at how much this city girl was amused by the humorous antics of squirrels and birds! The bed was so comfortable and I slept very well. I would definitely consider returning again. I would love to use the fireplace! - Akia

After just one out of the three nights we spent here, we did not want to leave! The Nest was a super cozy little cabin with everything you could need for a weekend away. We stayed there for our anniversary, and had the peace and quiet to enjoy each other, as well as realize we are into bird watching through the big picture window. Hosts were kind to leave plenty of firewood, stocked kitchen utensils, and a clean welcoming home. The drive up is steep and would maybe be difficult with ice on there, but we have an AWD vehicle so it was a breeze. Getting into the driveway is only tricky the first time you do it. If youre looking for a luxurious cabin, this isnt for you. But if youre looking for a sweet little cabin to enjoy nature in, dont hesitate! We will definitely be coming back.

My stay at "The Nest" was wonderful. The home was the perfect cabin getaway for the weekend. The cabin was clean and well kept up.There were clean sheets and all the kitchen essentials. The directions the owners left us were super helpful too concerning the wood burning stove / other housing things. The area was peaceful and quiet, exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely stay here in the future and would highly recommend to anyone.

Very nice place for the price and very cozy. Great little get away place for a long weekend. No issues at all in terms of cleanliness, etc. There is a nice HD TV with dish network, a DVD player and a sound system. If youre a griller, there is a nice high quality propane grill on the back porch. Three things you should be aware of, first, there is no dish washer. So if you dont mind cleaning dishes the good ole fashion way, it shouldnt be a problem. Bring a little bottle of dish soap. Second, there is no washing machine or dryer for laundry. Finally, there is no tub in the bathroom, just a small shower. So if you want to soak, you cant do it here. I would recommend this place to a friend and we will be returning for another stay. Thank you!

I loved our stay at The Nest. It was nicely situated for exploring Shenandoah Natl Park, and was comfortably appointed. We really enjoyed sitting on the back deck and watching the birds at the feeders. Beautiful, peaceful setting. The house was comfortable for two people and cozy, and I would definitely consider staying there again if I visit the area in the future.

It was a great weekend for sisters to get together. Couldve found something way cheaper but we had 2 dogs with us, so made it convenient. The fall leaves were in full affect to make a great scenery around the cabin. Directions and packing suggestions were right on. Amazing deck and situated on the road to keep it secluded enough. Didnt get to use the fire pit but the wood stove made it comfy. Located close to wineries and hiking, which was our mission. Definitely would suggest this place.

Thank you very much for a great accommodation. My sons and I enjoyed the beauty and peace of the cabin. It was special time with the kids. The bird feeder on the other hand was great. Hundred of birds coming and ate most of the birdseed. Enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching. Again, thanks for a memorable weekend with my children.

I was extremely pleased with the cabin and property. Everything was as promised and more. Notes were left for us, to help get acquainted with the kitchen and surrounding area. Brochures were in the coffee table to help with things to do. There was plenty of fire wood available for the fire pit and sitting area. I would go again and recommend this cabin.

Part 2 of 2 It was really nice that it was in a wooded area and even while driving up the road to The Nest and you pass other lodges, we didnt feel close to them at all and we couldnt hear other people. The ample amount of firewood outside was great for us making a fire to make smores and just relaxing outside for countless hours at night. The grill was also a plus since we grilled out every day as well as the wood stove inside the house, which we made a fire in the last night to see how it worked! We enjoyed watching all the different birds outside that went to the bird feeder too :) Overall, this place was great and I would definitely recommend it to others to stay in or even coming back myself. Thanks for the great stay and for your great service Allstar Lodging!

Part 1 of 2 Hello! We had a great time staying at The Nest while in the Shenandoah Valley. Our drive there was filled with beautiful views of the mountains and many cows, which we loved! We did get a little lost finding The Nest since our GPS said to go up a road and we crossed a railroad track and hit a dead end, but I called Allstar Lodging and they gave us directions until I lost signal and sure enough we found the house shortly after. The home itself was so great. Very cozy, neat, decorated beautifully, and they had amenities for us to use which was so handy and accommodating. Our four-legged friend loved the house as well and was able to roam outside and enjoy nature with the exception of a neighboring cat visiting a couple of times at night and she started to chase the cat down (dog habits!)! I dont think there is a bad thing to say about this house except that the shower was a little small, but it wasnt a concern for us.

We had such a lovely time at the Nest. The cabin was wonderful and our expectations were well exceeded. The Allstar staff was also super accommodating. When we were unable to access one of the roads to the cabin, we called the reservation number and someone was able to redirect us to another road. This was something we werent expecting late on a Friday evening. The website was very accurate and we will certainly recommend both the Nest and other Allstar Lodging properties in the future. Thank you for a relaxing and much needed getaway weekend. Sincerely, Mary & Andrew

loved the ambiance of the whole stay. The location was perfect. One morning we were out on the veranda eating breakfast when we saw an 8 point buck walk up from below. I also liked that there was a gate available on the verenda so that we could let our dog out and not worry about her running off. The best part of our stay was the big picture window. There was a bird feeder outside and most of the day we could watch the birds. The cabin was fully equipped. Even though we didnt use the wood stove it was a nice touch. I like that the cabin was set up for a dog. My daughter is a girl scout so she liked the fire pit and all of the wood. We had a great stay. Check in and out went smoothly and it was easy to book. I would like to stay again when I get the time. AWESOME Rebecca
