10 Cozy Cabins for a Shenandoah Valley Fall Getaway

Shenandoah Yurt

A crackling campfire is the perfect autumn accessory for your cozy cabin getaway in the Shenandoah Valley. Imagine the crisp evening air while you’re roasting marshmallows for s’mores, telling stories over favorite beverages, and realizing you have the “peaceful easy feeling” the Eagles sang about. It’s a simple relaxation, soaking in nature in the cool of a changing season. When morning comes, a cup of coffee around the same campfire or on the front porch is a welcome start to whatever kind of day you want to make. This is the luxury of a getaway, and you are invited.

Spaces for Two

Choose from any of the couples’ cabins at Steeles Tavern Manor in Raphine and you’re in for a treat. All of them feature an open floor plan, hot tubs, and outdoor dining spaces. For a water feature, consider Pond View Cabin. For a modern farmhouse feel, check out Treetop or Mountain View Cabin. For seclusion, we suggest Sunset Cabin or Ivy Cabin – both tucked away near the highpoint of the property.

An open floor plan is the appeal to the Hawksbill Cabins in Stanley (numbers 5-10, specifically). Each boasts a fully equipped kitchen, fireplace, fire pit, and hot tub. The cabins offer on-site hiking trails and a stocked pond for fishing. They’re easily accessible to Shenandoah National Park and other recreational opportunities in and around Luray.

Just what you need and not a thing more. That’s what you’ll find at the Meadow Mountain Cabin in Lyndhurst. Clean, pet-friendly, and situated sweetly in the trees, this little cabin is an open floor plan with kitchenette, jetted tub, and a porch for sitting. Turn the phone off and relax (though wifi is available).

The Hazelnut Cottage at Montfair Resort Farm in Crozet is a cozy stay for two, free of frills but perfect for memory-making. Cuddle up in the separate bedroom with queen sized bed and feel free to a meal or two in the kitchenette. Linens and coffee are provided. Borrow a canoe and row the lake, or try casting for a bite. The cottage is lakefront, promising wildlife views.

Places for a Few

A view at 2,500 feet is just what you need when the leaves depart the trees. It’s also just what you’ll get when you book the Shenandoah Yurt in Stanley. Well suited for four, the yurt is new, modern, comfortable, and includes all of the conveniences of home and then some. The sunken hot tub is great for knocking off an evening chill after you come up from the fire pit, of course. Bring your electric vehicle if you like. There’s a charger on site.

The comfortable, modern Escape to Black Walnut Cabin in Luray offers a panoramic view of George Washington National Forest through floor-to-ceiling windows, and there is space for four. Two bedrooms offer space for children or another couple to join you. Outside, the fireplace is a central spot for relaxation.

Three bedrooms and three bathrooms make The Mare House in Stanley a comfortable space for six adults (or 8 with fold-out couch). Enjoy the hot tub, multiple porches, fireplaces, access to Luray Caverns, area vineyards and breweries, and Shenandoah National Park.

Pebble Beach River Cabin is the centerpiece of nearly 10 acres on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River in Shenandoah, Virginia. You plus seven of your favorite people can spread out in TWO dwellings. The larger offers two bedrooms and baths while an adjacent cottage acts as a standalone master suite with kitchenette. The expansive deck is optimal for lounging and enjoying the great outdoors. Just steps away is the river – home to eagles and welcome to paddlers. A riverside picnic table and chairs beckon you stay a while.

Lodges for the Whole Crew

The Lodge at Hawksbill Retreat in Stanley sits at the foot of Shenandoah National Park and sleeps up to 30 people! Reservations for the palace requires 16 guests at a minimum, and there are many amenities to keep everyone happy. Favorite spaces here include the game room and the swings around the campfire.

Steps away from the Shenandoah River is Captain’s Lodge on the Rapids, a seven-bedroom retreat on 15 acres. Explore 800 feet of riverfront access, a game room, jacuzzi, and more. This lodge is great for families getting away together. Take advantage of the bunk room where four or five kids can rest well. With creative arrangements, 23 people can sleep here.
