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

My husband and I wanted to relax and get away for our anniversary. I'm so glad I found SME in my research! The property and the cabins are lovely. Karen met us as we pulled in, and she really is one of the sweetest people we've ever met. Her homemade treats were so yummy, and she helped us find the... More

We enjoyed staying in the Butterfly cabin. Love the wood frame, the architecture and the interior design of the cabin. Every corner is a piece of art. The strawberry cake and cookies were so delicious that we finished them in seconds. A perfect trip.

Wonderful place to get away from it all. Just a few minutes from the Shenandoah National Park, and about 10 minutes from Luray Caverns. SME is definitely a place you want to visit if you enjoy peace and quiet. The report only has about 4 cabins, 5 if you include Karen and Ralph's. A very inspiring place to visit, I... More

We had a lovely time staying at SME! The Butterfly cabin is comfortable + cozy - and we loved the little deck! The grounds are gorgeous - I kept thinking we'd been whisked away to a fairytale forest! They love what they do because it shows in everything we see here. We were thankful for this wonderful oasis to escape... More

We rented Ladybug during the Memorial Day Holiday. It was just fabulous. Karen and Ralph do a great job of being discreetly obvious -- there when you need 'em, but mostly not. Ladybug has no kitchen facility, but we managed with food we brought in and by using the provided coffee maker and microwave. The bed is just great, very... More

Words cannot express how pleased we were with our stay! We have experienced so many things and made new memories that we could not have possibly done in the city, seeing all of the stars in the clear night's sky was breathtaking and it doesn't hurt that our hosts were as sweet as pie. We will be returning :)

My wife and I stayed for two nights in the Butterfly Cabin. The entire property is very secluded and serene. We had deer and other wildlife outside our window daily. Karen was available as needed, but respected your privacy. We would love to return again.

Overall: Stayed in the "Butterfly" cabin. Very clean, very private. Cabin is within sight of a few other cabins, but not so close as to feel crowded. Owners were extremely friendly and welcoming. Owners gave great directions to plently of local things to do, as well as some great restaurants. Cabin: the Butterfly Cabin was very clean and private. It... More
