Convenient to I-81 is our relaxing, quiet townhouse with a bedroom upstairs for you. This tri-level end-unit will be perfect for one or two guests. Just 5 minutes drive away, you'll find RMH, JMU, groceries, restaurants, and a movie theater.
A beautiful and comfortable townhouse convenient to lots of sights in the Shenandoah Valley. This is an easy home base for visiting James Madison University, Shenandoah National Park, or the variety of local food and festivals nearby. Our gentle giant dog Porter will be happy to play with you, or happy to sleep privately, whichever you prefer. The bedroom is up 2 flights of stairs, so guests must be able to navigate those safely. In addition, this bedroom rental is not recommended for those with pet allergies. If this is your first airbnb stay, please verify your identity with airbnb before contacting us. It is a simple process that many hosts require and can be found at:
There is a very well-equipped shared kitchen which can be used, but cleaning up dishes will be up to the guest (dishwasher is available). Washer and dryer are available in the basement with free and clear soap and softener. Wireless internet is available in the house.
Interaction with Guests
Between work and school, we stay quite busy. We are likely to be in and out of the house. If we are travelling, you may end up having the house to yourselves! We are available for questions anytime, and we are happy to provide suggestions to you ahead of time if we will be unable to meet you.
The complex is quiet with a basketball court and large open green spaces. We are convenient to I-81, JMU, the hospital, and downtown, as well as the Coors and Merck manufacturing facilities near Elkton, VA. Only 30 minutes into the Shenandoah National Park, 20 minutes to Massanutten Resort, or 50 minutes to Charlottesville.
A car or bicycle is highly recommended. Harrisonburg does have a public bus system, but the closest bus stop is a bit far (1.7 mi, at RMH). We are very near Port Republic and Stone Spring, which are good roads for biking (bike lanes available). Excellent country biking is nearby in Keezletown or Dayton, and mountain biking trails at Hillandale Park are close.
Other Things to Note
The hosts interests include local biking, visiting nearby breweries and wineries, and cooking. In addition, we love our local parks and caverns. We are happy to give suggestions for anything you're looking for.
Well-behaved, well-socialized pets are allowed, but they must be kept on a leash when outside. Guests must clean up any kitchen items used during their stay. No smoking inside, but there is a back patio.
Very cozy and clean room. Spacious and bright as on the pictures. Bonnie was great. We enjoyed our stay!
Clean, comfortable, and quiet. A much needed reprieve for a graduate student on the road. The accommodations were exactly as advertised. You can tell Bonnie and Jeff go above and beyond to fill this room with as many creature comforts as possible. Porter was so sweet and Jeff was a great host when I first arrived. A pair of gracious hosts to say the least!
This was our second stay here, and it was as great as the first one. The unit is just as pictured, very clean, very nice. Communication was great. We're looking forward to the next time we travel down I-81 so we can return a third time.
Harrisonville was a convenient stopping point on our trip to the South. In spite of the fact that they were entertaining friends when we arrived (a point which Bonnie had communicated earlier), Bonnie and Jeff were friendly, professional, and accommodating, especially since we had our dog with us. The small room was exactly as we expected, clean, cozy, and well maintained. We slept well and were ready for the road the next day.
Bonnie was a very fine host. The room has all the right touches: a bottle of Pellegrino, electric tea kettle, comfortable sheets and comforter, TV setup with Netflix, etc, WiFi. Private bathroom was clean and comfortable. And Porter the dog was a great cozy companion.
Bonnie was great. We snuck in quite late and they were very accommodating. The room we stayed in was clean, quiet, had a nearby, nearly private bathroom, and was exactly what we were looking for.
My stay at Bonnie's was great. The room was clean, comfortable, and pretty. I liked the tea and Perrier by the bed. Instructions for letting myself in were clear. I met Bonnie later in the evening and she was very friendly. A great first airbnb experience.

Young professional couple living in Harrisonburg, VA. Originally raised in Texas but loving Virginia. We enjoy cooking, biking, arts and crafts, music, and reading (especially sci fi). One dog which (unfortunately) usually stays home while we travel.
We love traveling and road trips, as well as exploring locally in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. My husband is currently working on his Doctor of Physical Therapy and I work as an engineer at a nearby manufacturing plant. That means we don't spend as much time at home as we would like, but instead book our vacation days with fun activities and travels.
