“Camping At Shenandoah Crossing Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We did not stay at the hotel, we camped with our travel trailer so this review is about camping although we did go to the hotel. The camp sites we stayed on were relatively cheap $50/night. This is a resort owned/operated by Blue Green Resorts. It is a time share place however non owners are welcome and are NOT harrassed about sales.

The sites we were on were the gravel sites. They were back in the woods a bit so if you like that kind of thing those sites are the place for you. I was on site #2 which was a bit tough to back in to and I can imagine there are several others that can be even more challenging. They do have some pull-through sites in this area. I love camping in the wooded areas myself, but our friends would rather have stayed on the concrete pad sites. Those sites are very nice. Not as many trees, but the ammenities are quite nice. The standard pull through and back in concrete sites are $85/night with a 3 night minimum. They come with a proprane grill, table, and chairs. However, the pull through sites come with a sink and a bigger table and more chairs. Very nice! They also have hot tub sites which have a fire ring built into the patio. Those are like 135/night with a 7 night minimum. Oh and the gravel sites had charcoal grills (ours was in excellent condition) and fire rings with a grill grate also in great condition.

The things to do here are many. Some of the basic things are free like the pools, miniature golf, basketball, tennis, cable tv and few others. They also have fishing, horse back riding, kayaking and lessons, and other stuff. They offer cabins and yerts. Yerts are a glorified round tent with heat and a/c. Not too bad, but expensive for a tent. They have 5 pools at one area and two more at the hotel area. They are all open (from what I understand) all year round. The 5 pools are two big hot tubs and 3 other pools one which is heated. The hotel area has an indoor and outdoor pool. It was 60 degrees at night and all 4 kids were swimming still. The pool hours are like no other campground I've been on. They were from 8am to 10pm. Both areas have arcades which are very nice. They have a lot of activities for adults and children going on all the time. The place is kept very clean. Restrooms and showers are close by all sites.

All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didn't want it to end. We will definitely be back. They have no idea if you are an owner or just a looker so they treat everyone the same. The staff were sometimes not very well versed on what things are or where they were, but they were nice.

The only bad part I saw was the staff vehicles went rather fast and were sometimes noisy. Two horses used the restroom on the main road so that trailers and cars could run through it and after 1.5 days they still had not cleaned it up. That was a bit disappointing. They do have walking trails, but they are the same as the horse trails so watch out!!

Room Tip: If you live close by, ask if you can drive around first to get a feel for what sites are available...

We stayed in the Blue Green Shenandoah Crossing Cabbins in April. The whole experience would have been great except for the RAIN. Gordonsville is an interesting little place and has some of the best Bar-B-Q in the world.
We stayed there so we could soak up some of the great history by seeing Thomas Jeffersons Monticello, James Madison's Montpelier, & James Monroe's Ash-Lawn Highland. There were so many other homes there that were from the same period that were just gorgeous.
The trip was great, just go a little later in the Spring and it is much better and the scenery is prettier.

Room Tip: This is a resort and if you don't belong to Blue Green then you can't stay at this particula...

We booked one night in the lodge in a 2-bed hotel room. The room was clean and typical of what you'd expect at a basic hotel, although the price was about twice as high. They have a small but nice indoor pool and hot tub, which was nice, and it was nice to take a walk down to the lake. For some reason, our TV and most of the other appliances were unplugged, so that took some time to hook everything back in, and I don't think the hot water was working in the morning, but it was the night before. The restaurant has very poor service - we came down at 10 am for breakfast, and by 10:45 were still waiting for our drinks and for someone to take our order - and the restaurant was just about empty! I had to ask for menus around 10:30, and when she handed them to us she asked if we were ready to order...we hadn't even opened the menus yet! So, we eventually walked out of the restaurant at 10:45...no idea how the food is!

We were assigned a very old, tired 2 BR cabin. Pretty bad. We were told renovations were gradually being done, but that didn't help us! Poor lighting, old furniture in bedroom, old tv's, no fireplace, etc. We took a tour and saw amazing accommodations, specifically the yurts and 3 BR cabins. Oh well!

we are Bluegreen owners but this was our first visit to this Bluegreen location and we stayed over Labor Day weekend. Overall it was a great experience and can't wait to come back often since we live less than 2hrs away. We stayed in a 1-bedroom villa. It was neat and clean. We didn't have time to take advantage of all that is available there but did take a boat out on the lake for an hr, used the outdoor pool and played minigolf. Each unit has a brand new propane gas grill outside. We didnt use the restaurant but did partake of happy hour. prices are reasonable and when we walked through the restaurant it was quite well attended. We can't wait to bring the grandkids next time. We looked over the other units and hopefully if we stay longer we can get one of the yurts.

Room Tip: If you want a view of lake..rooms 300-302. If you want to try a new experience we hear the yurts are...

The 2 bedroom yurts are a wonderful way to experience "camping" for those who want to be in the "wilderness" yet have all the comforts of home. The 2 bedroom yurt is covered by canvas and is circular. (It feels like you are in a tent during a rainstorm). The surprize is the inside-these yurts are very well appointed with heat and air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen-and gas BBQ, cable TV,free internet, phones, comfortable beds (1 queen, 1king, 1 pull out leather sofa)and a large shower/bathroom. There is a huge wooden deck attached to the yurt, perfect for enjoying the sounds, fresh air, and stars. There are many activities to do on property including a horse trail,pools, activity center, a large lake with fishing boats/poles rental and free paddle boats, The resort often holds a campfire at the marina(you bring your own ingredients). There are some fire pits throughout the area. This resort offers a variety of accomodation types but the yurt is wonderful!I told my girls it was like "princess camping" because there is nothing that you have to do except get your groceries and enjoy. (running hot water,flush toilets, full kitchen, gas BBQ etc ).
We ate the BBQ Exchange in town-a short drive but it is very busy,and closes early (8pm)
The horse trail is for inexperienced riders and quite boring but only $20-you must have covered shoes and wear a helmet(supplied)-good for young /inexperenced riders-we did a trail ride with a local rancher (Oakland Heights-owned by David Lamb- fantastic and well worth the $40 per person)
The resort is less than 10-15 mles from many Civil War sites.
You can drive the Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park
It is also close to the Luray Caverns.
It is less than 2 hours to Washington DC.
There is so much to do and enjoy in the area that you may want to make it your base and explore.

My husband and I stayed in the two bedroom yurt about 2 years ago. We absolutely fell in love with the property and the lay out of the fabulous yurt! It was immaculate, and very romantic! Just what we were looking for after his 7 month deployment! We are going again in September! we couldn't get a yurt this time, so we will be staying in a cabin, I hope it is every bit as awesome as the yurt... that could potentially be unfair :) because I have never stayed anywhere quite like the yurt!

Room Tip: We wanted to stay one night extra, but the yurt was not available. We stayed in the main hotel... we...
