Luray, Virginia
Our cabin at Bear River Valley has everything you want to augment your relaxation in the peaceful harmony of the Shenandoah River.

Sit around the campfire with your feet in the river, listening to the calls of 100 different birds. Free canoes sit nearby for your immediate use. Make sure to grab the oars and life jackets from the shed before heading out!

A full acre of open yard, from the house to the river, gives you plenty of space to setup your soccer game or volleyball net.

A brand new, 7-foot hot tub was recently installed with over 45 jets. This hot tub, from one of the top manufacturers in the business, is great for evening relaxation or morning soak. And while you soak, look out across the river and mountains.

Just got back from an amazing weekend at Bear Valley Cabin. Right on the Shenandoah River, this cabin has everything you need for a get-away-from-it-all style retreat. We loved the canoes, easy access to the river for fishing, the fire pit for s'mores, the hot tub (even in the chilly weather)---this cabin has it all. Would highly recommend for anyone...

Management response:

Thanks for leaving this nice review and telling others! Hope to see you again!

This was a great little place to getaway from everything! The house is cozy with most of the amentities you will need for your stay. The yard is great and enough room for our dog to run around. We especially loved being right on the river and sitting around a fire every night. Our dog went swimming in the river...
