On a whim we found the cabins via VRBO. We only stayed two nights in the "Gander" however, they were most relaxing. The first night we were able to grill out and enjoy the hot tub. We woke up to a heavy down pour of rain which was amazing on the tin roof. I enjoyed my coffee on the covered... More

we just returned from our third visit to the Cabins. We had a great time as usual and the owners are allways there if you need them for anything. We enjoyed the firepit all nights and also the horseshoes. We walked the town of Luray and visited the Caverns again. We took our son and his wife and they loved... More

We just got home from our stay in the Goose cabin and I can't say enough about how nice this place was. It's located just a few minutes from downtown Luray and the caverns and the view is amazing. The cabin itself is very homey and both mattresses (in the bedroom and the loft) were very comfortable. My only recommendation... More

Lovely cabins. Very clean. A fun and different place to stay rather than just a plain old motel! Kids loved the "loft"!! My only very small complaint would be that the linens were not put on the beds. You pay extra for linens...which was totally OK with me......but I would have figured that paying for them would include having the... More

Recently stayed in Gander Island Cabins in Luray and had a great time. We visit the area several times a year and this is the 4th or 5th cabin we have stayed in and found it to be our favorite so far. Price was fair and cabin was nice and clean and just as advertised. Love the layout and it... More

We stayed at the Gander Island Cabins for two nights and absolutely loved it! The cabins are on a cute farm road and right along a river. When we got in and checked the cabin out, I noticed that there were no linens like I had asked for. I called them, and within a half hour, Lisa was down to... More

We stayed for just one short night in October and had a wonderful experience. I booked with Lisa over the phone, while she was on vacation no less. Booking was easy and I received confirmation via email which was nice. The cabins are located a few miles out of the town of Luray on a wonderful piece of property overlooking... More

I really can't say enough good things about this cabin! First of all, the service we received with timely, friendly, accommodating emails from the owners- Lisa and David, was highly appreciated. They're dog-friendly and although their website says the minimum stay is 2 nights, they will often allow one-night visitors if there isn't anyone else booked for the cabin, which... More

A bit of a gamble, with only one Tripadvisor review before us. But it was absolutely wonderful. Cabin was lovely, simply amazing to sit on the deck looking at and listening to the stream (river?), and feeling so removed from everything and relaxed. Having our own hot tub for the weekend was great - not like a hotel where you... More

What a beautiful place to sleep in. The cabins are privately owned by Lisa and David Gander. There are two log cabins that are located next to each other on a very quiet road over looking the river. The cabins are only about two years old. They were very clean. There is a large wooden deck, a small living room... More
