The cabin was very clean and looks like the pictures on the website. The only complaint about the cabin itself is that it says it sleeps six, but the pull out sofa bed was very uncomfortable and probably needs to be replaced. The fire pit was wonderful, as well as the pool table and hot tub! Also, the cabin is not right on the water. You can't see the water from the cabin, but it is a short walk down the property to the shoreline! Overall, was a really good time.
POSITIVES: The cabin was clean and well stocked with towels, linens, extra comforters etc. Boards games in the closet. Kitchen & living area open floor plan. Hot tub works well. Great view. Canoes/kayaks for use were awesome. Lots of info provided about the ins & outs of the cabin. Working fireplace. Onsite Laundry. Pet-friendly (for a fee). Gas grill. Fantastic fire pit down by the water. Also, Google maps takes to right to the cabin (just put in the address that AirBnB gives you.)
NEGATIVES: The bikes are not in rideable shape currently. Very little outdoor privacy (the neighbors' houses are right next to you and there are no trees or anything to create privacy b/w the properties). If folks are down by the water, you may not be able to see them from the balcony (not a major issue, mostly just something to watch for if you have small children). Fireplace had some minor issues as did the grill, but both still sort of worked.
OVERALL: A great place to stay.
Very clean and nice. We had such a great time.
The Cabin was great. It provided us with exactly what we needed. Everything in the house was clean and worked great. The hot tub and outdoor grill provided the perfect environment for hanging out on the deck. The river was a blast, and while the water was pretty low we still got out on the canoes (provided) everyday and managed to catch a few fish. We spent the evenings by the fire pit on the waters edge. Happy days.
Staying at the cabin was great, it was very remote, secluded, and clean. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and will definitely be making a trip back to the area in the near future. I will echo a point that a couple of the other reviewers had, and that was that there are instructions (rules) written everywhere. It was borderline comical, with the only thing we actually needed instructions for (the hot tub), nowhere to be found. The amenities were good with the well stocked kitchen, a landline phone you could use, and satellite dish tv.
All-in-all, it was a good place to stay.
House was just as described, just steps from the river. Guidelines and directions were clear and easy.
In particular, we loved the fire pit, screened-in porch, and canoes. Lovely weekend. Recommended!
Great experience. Everything in place as advertised. A great weekend get away. Experience is the river was awesome.
We enjoyed our stay at Shenandoah Stars. It was a great spot for a weekend away with some friends. The house was clean and well maintained. The backyard was perfect for hanging out - there's a picnic table, fire pit, space for lawn games, and a bench down by the river. The canoes were great to take out and explore the river and there were 2 grills (gas and charcoal) so we had more than enough grilling space to make some delicious feasts. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and highly recommend this cabin!
Two side notes:
-Other reviewers have noted that it's not secluded. That's definitely true, but not an issue if you know what to expect. Don't expect to be out there in solitude - you will have neighbors nearby.
-I had much better success emailing directly instead of corresponding via airbnb. They were quick to respond via direct email.
The High Ridge Cabin was a perfect retreat for our small family gathering (6 adults, 1 child). It was secluded and well-equipped with the essentials we needed to have a comfortable stay. Prior to arriving, we got a welcome email with precise directions to find/access the cabin. Upon reaching, there were clear guidelines posted within the property to ensure the stay was pleasant.
We had to contact the owner and management company for a few minor things before and during the stay, and the response was very quick.
The house is in a remote neighborhood very close to the river. We took some nice walks down to the water. The photos don't show that there are houses nearby. Not a problem but it's not as secluded as you might think.
Wireless worked well-we had to do some work so we were glad for that.
Overall, nice trip.
