The space

Atop the ridge overlooking Shenandoah Valley - facing west for spectacular sunsets. On a clear day you can see West Virginia 40 miles away.

Guest access

You'll have access to the entire house (except 2 locked storage closets) and yard (3 wooded acres).

Interaction with guests

We live close by and can offer advice or assistance and attend to any emergency.

The neighborhood

The setting is a very secluded rural (bordering on wilderness) neighborhood. On a typical day 5 cars go by (and from inside you can't even hear them ).

Getting around

We're 4 miles above the little village of Linden & another 5 miles then to the historic town of Front Royal.

Other things to note

At the foot of the mountain is a great little farmer's market for fresh produce (in season) and a small convenience store.

Even if it's too cold & you don't feel hearty enough to brave the walk to outside hot tub, you can still enjoy the 6-jet jacuzzi whirlpool tub inside.

What a great house! Very secluded, but only and hour and a half from DC. Beautiful house and gorgeous view! They had everything we could want and more within the house and made it very easy and comfortable for our weekend stay. Would definitely recommend!

Stayed at Valley Vista with my wife for a mini-honeymoon, and we both loved it! Chris & Steven were excellent hosts, and their hot tub is awesome. Highly recommended.

This cabin is above and beyond what we expected, and the Airbnb ad just doesn't do this place justice! Chris and Steve are extremely communicative and so willing to help. Everything related to the cabin is very clear, including house rules, what is included in the cabin (which is just about every thing you could possibly need), and activities to enjoy in and around the cabin. The house was very clean and organized. We have no complaints, and we are grateful for such a wonderful weekend at this cabin.

Their place is as described and the location is very quiet and peaceful. Communication was great and the cabin was stocked with everything you would need. The garden would be great when it's warmer. The hot tub is nice especially with the amazing view. My only complaint was that the bed was uncomfortable in the room I stayed in, but I'm pretty picky about beds. Otherwise a great weekend getaway!

Response from Chris & Steve:
Thank you for being our guests and glad you enjoyed your stay. All of the beds are 6 months old and we selected mid-firmness because, as you said, everyone has a different preference.

Chris and Steve's house is spectacular. I almost don't want to write about it to keep it a secret. The house itself is clean and organized. We had everything we needed from cooking supplies to extra toiletries. They have done a fantastic job of labeling everything. There was nothing missing, all you need to bring is food and clothes. The view is unbelievable even from the hot tub (Which was very clean and super modern). I was so happy to meet Scooter the neighborhood deer. He is adorable and very friendly. They are not kidding about the need for a 4 wheel drive vehicle if there is going to be snow as it is off of a gravel road wayyyy up in the mountains. We woke up to 4 inches of snow and Chris came over to shovel our stairs. They even have sleds available! We will absolutely be returning to Rainbow View. Thank you Chris and Steve!!!

We've been operating for 4 years, but we're brand new to Airbnb. Check out our website: browser search for "Rainbow Views vacation cabin". (Sorry - Airbnb won't allow us to include an actual link.)
In fact, we've built such a reputation and demand that we've just opened another cabin just down the road from this one. Check out Valley Vista Cabin! (But two is our limit - We never intended for this to become a booming business venture! We're supposedly retired! :-) )
