This was easy to book via trip advisor. This is a 5 star cabin with wonderful facilities and views to match. The area is full of great walks and attractions and a multitude of wildlife spotting opportunities. Om the skyline drive you can stop and hike in many locations we saw bears,snakes, deer,raptors etc.
We kayaked the Shenandoah river, fabulous, eagles,turtles herons etc.
To be able to come home each day to this wonderful cabin,get in the hot tub and reflect on our days events was fabulous. Come here and relax.
Truly enjoyed our stay at Rainbow View Cabin.
Steve and Chris were exceptional hosts. Although we never had the need or opportunity to meet them, we knew they were just a text or phone call away. We appreciated their welcome text, many notes around the cabin that answered questions before they were even asked, informative notebooks with suggestions of what to do in the area, etc.
The cabin is well equipped for cooking both inside and outdoor. Enjoyed evening fires on the deck - they even had the cauldron set up with paper and kindling to start the first fire. Gas, charcoal, and fire logs were all provided. Also enjoyed excellent selection of tv including Netflix.
We enjoyed visiting nearby historical towns and taking drives between mountains on winding, sloping roads. Could only imagine what it must be like in the winter. After a day of sightseeing it was a joy to return to the cabin where the temperature truly was 10 degrees cooler.
Perhaps the best thing was how dog friendly the cabin and area was. Although there is no yard for the dog to run in, our Havanese enjoyed the the deck which had a dog gate and walks on the road. The hills provided good exercise for both of us!
This wonderfully appointed cabin is close to the northern entrance of Shenandoah National Park for some great hiking. There are many other fun attractions in the area as well, including many wineries. Best of all though, is the Rainbow View Cabin itself with the beautiful view from the deck. The owners have thought of every comfort to make their place feel like home. Well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, games, books, etc. Thanks Chris and Steve for being so accommodating - you made our stay special! I would highly recommend the Rainbow View Cabin, and hope to visit again!
My wife stayed with her two sisters. It's something they do every year and have done so for the last 17 years. There stay was perfect in every way. The large picture windows showcased the fantastic view.
The cabin has been very well-appointed kitchen and appreciate the attention to detail. They thought of everything! "My sisters and I really enjoyed that the cabin was dotted with humorous little notes that anticipated and answered your questions we didn't need anything from them while we were there but they made sure we knew they were available to assist us at a moment's notice if we did need anything." The hot tub was clean and well maintained and it was positioned so that you could look at the view while soaking. It's a quiet and peaceful cabin in the woods and they truly loved there stay there.
We came across Rainbow View while researching a place near Skyline Drive to stay with our grandchildren, who were visiting from California. Not only was the cabin clean and comfortable, there was nothing more we could have asked for.
Chris and Steve were wonderful hosts, making sure we had every amenity, right down to the ingredients for the kids to make Smores.
We enjoyed overlooking the mountain view from the hot tub.
It was close to everything including tubing, horseback riding and touring the caverns.
Communication from the start could not have been more informative, as they made sure our stay was the best it could possibly be.
We are already planning future trips to the area, and would stay no where else.
