My husband and I planned a mini getaway to the Shenandoah Valley over the recent federal holiday and were fortunate enough to have found this truly amazing escape! It was more beautiful and relaxing than we could have imagined and only wish we could have stayed longer. Our stay started off with a wonderful welcome by one of the SME... More

One of the nicest, quaintest, friendliest, best places we have EVER stayed - and we have done quite a bit of traveling. I can not say enough great things about this gem in the mountains. Will be back for sure.

Because they are delicious and you will be obligated to devour them. Perfect place for a romantic getaway. Secluded, but easy to get to places in Luray and the surrounding communities, and you can get pizza delivered to the cabin. Fancy that! Beautiful setting, reasonably priced, the owners are both helpful and respectful of one's privacy. Can't get any better... More

This is a hidden gem! My wife and I spent a few days just unplugging from the outside world and hiking. The owners, Ralph and Karen, are uber friendly and make you feel at home immediately. The cabins are spacious and well decorated, the timber framing is reminiscent of old Germany and brought back fond memories. You owe it to... More

We have been back to Shadow Mountain Escape over a dozen times. This most recent time was with our dear friends from St. Louis for a little R & R and a little taste of Virginia Wine Country. Karen & Ralph do a superb job of keeping the cabins charming and immaculate. They are always updating the cabins and the... More

We stayed in the Ladybug cabin for a weekend in early-mid September. The cabin/loft has 100% timber wood framing with European-style decor. It was very intimate and cozy and very CLEAN. We enjoyed the seclusion and quietness of the property and Ralph and Karen were magnificent hosts. Skyline drive and Shenandoah National Park is a short 15-20 min drive. We... More

Dragonfly cabin was perfect. The location is perfect, located away from the hustle & bustle of town but still close enough to enjoy Luray. Close to the entrance to the Skyline Drive. The hosts are perfect. welcoming you when you get there but then disappearing unless you need them. The baked goods left as a welcoming gift are perfect!! Loved... More

Loved the location, the setting, the kindness of our hosts. If you want old European charm while experiencing the American wild nature and open spaces this is the perfect combo! We saw all sort of wild animals while hiking, including a bear, and at the end of the day, there was always a surprise treat waiting for us.... Karen's baking... More

We were so grateful to celebrate our seventh anniversary in a place created with so much passion. This is a very special experience, enhanced by the bird song and beautiful night’s stars. The baked goods were all delicious and appreciate. The cabin and grounds are a wonderful and unique escape truly buffered and different from everyday life. The proximity to... More
