Shadow Mountain Escape is just that-an amazing escape. We went there for our honeymoon and we could not have asked for a more relaxing, romantic atmosphere. I had read great reviews and spoken to Karen (the owner) prior to going so my expectations were high and I was not dissappointed. We were greeted by Karen's husband (sorry can't remember his name), who was working outside the Butterfly Loft where we stayed and before we could circle the yard Karen was bounding up the road. What a perky and happy lady! She showed us our cabin and the grounds and left us alone. The Butterfly Loft is perfect for romance and atmosphere. Karen baked us some goodies, gave us a bottle of champagne and it just set the tone for our stay. The loft has everything you will need, kitchen, dining table, bed, couch, dvd player, towels....just too much to list. She made sure our honeymoon was perfect. The area is a wonderful escape from the world for a while. Cell phones don't work but Karen let us use her home phone to let family know we had made it there safely. I could write a book about the place but l won't I will just say if you are looking for a get-a-way be it with your significant other or larger group, this is the place to stay. Shadow Mountain escape will always be our one great escape!

12 people from our office came to stay here for our retreat. There was more than enough space at this beautiful location. The interiors were gorgeous, Karen was incredibly hospitable (thanks again for the delicious baked goods prepared on our arrival and setting up a fire for us!)

We couldn't have asked for a better place for our retreat. Highly recommended.

I have one daughter and four daughters-in-law! We wanted a place affordable, quiet, and unique to have a gals' retreat. We didn't want to do any work, just a place to hang out, talk, shop and have fun! This place fits the bill to a T. The owners are so gracious and inviting and oh those lovely little treats left on the kitchen table. Definitely a 10 and a go-again. Thanks so much!
Oh, found this place by crusing the web, some of us are from Canada, it ismuch more than the pictures show!

This retreat met our expectations and our expectations were high. The atmosprere was serene and the European country style architecture was exquisite. Karen, the energetic proprietor, saw to our every need. We highly recommend this peaceful sanctuary to all who are seeking a quiet "get-a-away".

I have been to Shadow Mountain Escape once in the fall and once in the sprintime for the last three years. Sometimes I've gone with friends and we've rented the entire property.

I stayed in the Butterfly this spring with my fiance. This is one of the most romantic places I've ever been, in any season. The proprieter takes care of her guests as if you've known her forever. It is so peaceful/ You never have to leave the grounds, but if you do, there is much to do outside the property, such as hiking the gorgeous Shenandoah Park, antiquing in town, or eating a quiet dinner in town.

The place accomodates families, couples, singles, weddings, bachelor parties, fishing groups. You name it, they do it. They go out of their way to accomodate any request you have. The proprietor is a fabulous baker, too - you won't want to miss her cookies as you arrive!

My fiance fell in love with the place,and when we were discussing what we'd do for our honeymoon he suggested we take a few days at Shadow Mountain, in the Butterfly. It is truly a place where stress leaves you and memories are made.
