I just left a family reunion at Hawksbill Lodges and while there were a few hiccups, the property manager was very hands on and helpful. He was there everyday fixing squeaky doors, screaming bathroom fans, and dropping off new firewood. We are a large group of people and have lots of small children so it can be hard to accomidate us, but he took every curve we threw at him.
The cabin was everything we wanted it to be. Clean. Well appointed. Amazing view. Truly the absolute perfect escape.
We had a wonderful stay at Absolute Perfect Escape for a large group of family and friends who were in the Shenandoah Valley for a wedding nearby.The cabins are spacious, well appointed, and fully equipped with everything you need for a weekend getaway. This is one of the few places I was able to find that could house nearly 50 people in the same compound, so we'll definitely be back when we're gathering this group again in the future. The view from Cabin #1 is stunning - one of the most beautiful landscapes around!
I hosted a girls' getaway to celebrate our friend getting married. The cabin was the perfect place for us all to hang out. The large common room was great for eating and talking, playing games, watching movies etc. We never even got to the basement where there was a pool table, foosball, air hockey and multi game arcade cabinet in addition to a huge cabinet of board games upstairs. We loved having the hot tub and we even did some yoga on the deck. The views from cabin two were very nice from the rocking chairs on the wrap around porch. The cabin is spacious and the kitchen is well stocked. I was a little concerned by the length of the contract but based on the specific rules, I assume that the owners have had some terrible guests in the past (no pets in the hot tub?). I had a bit of trouble getting into the lockbox to open the gate and we could not get on the cabin's wifi all weekend, but other than that it was Perfect. I would definitely stay here again.
We booked our stay this past August 2017 for 17 people. 8 adults, the rest kids from 7 - 16 in age. The house was an "Absolute Perfect Escape". It was extremely accommodating inside and out. The grounds were perfect for us. Kids could play football and run around. Adultsnhad the deck. We all took turns in the hot tub (definitely needs a water change and fresh chemicals). All of the rooms and beds worked well for all, except the master bedroom. Disappointing that there were no King Size beds and the mattress in the Master Bedroom on the main floor was not the most comfortable. The bedrooms downstairs had better mattresses for the kids and other adults. The only other thing was that this house (for up to 24) needs a second refrigerator and a separate ice machine. There is no room to accommodate full capacity who need to cook for so many. Outside of that, PERFECT! Love the place. Will come back for sure. EVERYONE had a blast and loved the house and grounds. The area is awesome for all activities. We did the caverns, Skyline Drive, Hiking through the National parks, waterfalls, rafting, swam at the Lake, went to wineries. There is a 24hr Full Walmart and Food Lion 10 mins away. The scenery from the house is LEGIT!!! It is amazing!!! It was quiet (except for our people) lol... all worked so well. Thank you for the great property. The price was right and the times will last forever.
This was an AWESOME spot for a quiet, peaceful get away! We truly needed this time away. The cabin and beautiful surroundings made it our favorite place for an escape! We will be back in October for sure!
Love...love....love!! I called and spoke to one of the owners and booked the same day! Beautiful, clean, nature, hot tub, firepits.....and PRIVACY! I booked for a surprise getaway for my husband daughter and I and my husband wants to return with just him and I next time. Oh and the night sky is breathtaking! I cannot wait to return and will be rebooking very soon!
