“Great place to stay for large groups”
Reviewed February 5, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My group loved this cabin. We had a large group of guys for a bachelor party and and it was perfect. Tons of space and great amenities. The owner was very responsive and always accommodating. I will definitely look to stay again

“Great place for a gathering of friends around food and fireplace”
Reviewed January 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had an excellent stay at the Westcott House with a group of late-20s/early-30s friends who gather for a reunion each year over the New Year's holiday. Our gathering revolves around food, and the Westcott House was perfect--the kitchen is incredible, with a double oven, large range, two dishwashers, and lots of counter space for prep work. The second kitchen downstairs provided helpful spillover space for baking while meals were prepared upstairs. There was also a great, huge table for serving meals that our entire group fit around. The fireplaces are cozy and allow space for relaxing and reading. Bedrooms are all spacious, and there were enough bedrooms that each couple in our group had their own space--difficult to find in many rentals. The house is quite new, so nearly all fixtures and appliances are in great shape. And the house is clean and well cared-for. Management is prompt to answer emails, and the nearby caretaker was helpful.

Note that the house often caters to large groups and possibly retreats, so there are signs posted with rules and dos and don'ts everywhere, and the thermostats and piano are kept locked to prevent misuse. We understood that this is necessary with large youth groups, but it felt a bit over the top with a smaller group of adults. That made it feel a bit more like we were renting a retreat center, rather than a house. Overall, the space was really great for our needs--spacious, clean, modern, great kitchen--but did not feel as home-y as other rentals might due to the signs and things kept locked up.

“We really enjoy the house each time we visit...”

Our company uses the house for leadership training a few times each year. It is perfect for our sessions. Our only complaint is the bugs. I would say that they should use a long hose vacuum to dispose of them over the windows and cobwebs in different areas. Other than that, the management is very responsive to our needs, the wifi works great for a large group, the layout of the home is perfect, and everyone loves the "homey" feeling. We truly enjoy the house and plan to continue to use it in the future. Everyone looks forward to being there.

Thanks, Tamara, for your kind words and for taking a minute to tell others about your time! The bugs are something that we battle during different times of the year. The late Fall is when the problem is, and trust me - we DO vacuum them up several times per week. It's a mountainous environment so they come right back. But thank you for reminding us to keep trying new ideas. Tell me - what other types of things can we do in the future to make Westcott House get a 5 star from you? Our goal is to get a 5 star review from everyone who stays at Westcott House and all other Cardigan Cabins properties. We love feedback from guests. Call or email at any time!

“It has everything you'll need”

We used the house for a small family reunion. The kitchens were fully stocked. The beds were comfortable. Everything was clean. There were a few items that needed repair but they still worked - for example, a wheel was missing on the bottom rack of one of the dishwashers. One of the issues we had was temperature control. The day we arrived was warm but given it was fall, the heat was on; because of previous problems with prior tenants, the thermostats were locked so we had to call the rental office to get the a/c turned on. We would of opened the doors but bugs were an issue.
Overall - for the price the place was great. I would definitely stay there again.

Thanks, Susand, for your kind words and for taking a minute to tell others about your time! The dishwasher wheel and a few other small things are already being worked on - thanks for the feedback earlier on that.

We spent last Thanksgiving there with our family. It was amazing and the kitchen had all the amenities we needed to cook Thanksgiving. The open floor plan, along with the private sitting areas made for lots of personal and family time. We had such a great time we tried to book for this year but it Wes already taken. We are still goingback to Luray, just a different cabin. Would be a perfect place for a great girls get away weekend.

“Hiking the Shenandoah”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Had the most wonderful weekend hiking along the Shenandoah with all of my children and grandchildren. Westcott House was wonderful. We had everything we needed and more than enough room for all 15 of us to relax. We ranged in age from 3 to 69, and everyone was happy. Kids enjoyed the playground, large yard, and sleeping in the bunk rooms.Adults loved the large comfortable bedrooms, the wonderful bonfires, and large hot tub. We will be back!
