Luray, Virginia

It was built in 2008. Looks like one huge house, but it's actually a main house (occupied by the owners) and a Guest House. The Guest House is connected to the main house but totally private with its own entrance. The Guest House is the log home vacation rental and is quite unique. Comes included with Don and Bj Garner & three furry kids. The ramp leads you to the Guest House rental door, where above it is a green sign: A HAPPY PLACE. Indeed it is. There are several placards on the porch… each is an ode to a loved one(s).

There's a private screened-in porch for you with a table and chairs and a wooden porch swing. The huge open deck has a nice patio set that seats six. The door has a keypad lock; changed with each new renter. You are notified via email with the code and other details.

We loved the area. Close to the entrance of Shenandoah National Park / Skyline Drive. We went hiking every day for the week and each trail was different and beautiful. Luray Caverns is just a few miles away. This cave system is gorgeous - better than Mammoth Cave. Don & B J are wonderful people. They treat you like family...

We went there for Valentine's weekend and couldn't be happier. Don and BJ were great hosts and the place was great. Clean and stocked with everything you need. They even left us cookies, juices and water in the fridge. Calm, relaxing weekend. Close enough to groceries and some small restaurants. The caverns were only 10 min away. If you like...

This was the perfect place for our "friends giving" weekend. The kitchen is really nice and the place was very spacious for 5 people plus a dog. We loved hanging out on the patio and grilling. There is also a great back yard with a swing set and fire pit. Plus, the location is very convenient (about a 10 minute...

About the neighbourhood
Garnerland in Luray is in a subdivision called Massanutten Forest. We have a beautiful 3 acre lot on a dead end road with a cul-de-sac. The roads in the subdivision are gravel but well maintained. GPS gets a little screwy when you get close but you can find the subdivision easily off Egypt Bend Rd. There is a sign for the entrance that has two bears on it and it is lighted.
