Excellent cabin that is remote and private. It is definately off of the paved road...about ten minutes on a dirt/gravel road from where the pavement ends to the front door. I would not expect the road to be an issue for most vehicles most of the year, but if going in the winter months a truck/SUV would be ideal. All that travel is worth it though, if you are looking for a private location, in a well stocked cabin. Plenty of pots, pans, utensils, etc. Take your groceries with you...there is no such thing a "quick trip" to the store. The fire pit is nice, and although I did not use it the hot tub seemed clean and working.
Just a couple of cons: It does have a park style grill, which is not bad, but could be better with a Webber style charcoal grill. I also had not considered trash disposal - the cabin is in the middle of the woods - you can pay an extra cash fee per bag for thier disposal or follow the directions to the county landfill station with the directions in the cabin.
Overall exellent cabin, and I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for an isolated getaway.
We really enjoyed our stay at the High Ridge cabin. The cabin itself, as well as all of the accommodations were just right for a weekend away. The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances and all the tools needed to make meals (I made all of our meals there and wasn’t lacking in the tools needed-even has a blender and slow cooker). Plenty of towels, hair dryer etc...
Upon arrival the cabin was already warm and ready for us. Loved using the hot tub and looking up at the stars. If you bring kids, there’s a room with bunk beds and extra bed so that’s perfect. The management was quick to answer any questions I had during the stay and very helpful.
There were some stink bugs but it wasn’t really a problem and it’s in the woods so there’s bound to be bugs.
Main negative was the drive. They did encourage us to have four-wheel drive for a winter stay if the conditions were wet/icy. The road right up to the cabin is incredibly steep. The roads are well-maintained gravel (which is easier in wet conditions) so that was not a problem. Just know that it is very steep (we never went out after dark).
Wonderful secluded, peaceful cabin. The town nearby has a nice cafe that we ate at, used bookstore and cute theater so there’s stuff to do if you venture out. Had a great time!
Amazing cabin for a honeymoon. Very romantic with the gas fireplace in the living room and well placed wood along with beautiful stone on the inside. Very warm and cozy. The hottub was very clean and perfect temperature on a chilly night. Will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy outside fires and more good times!! Thanks high ridge!!
I had the pleasure of staying at this cozy cabin for a peaceful and relaxing getaway from the big city. This little hideaway was the perfect place to do just that. The elegent rental has a full kitchen, fireplace, hot shower, TV, internet, a plethora of DVD moves, and a hot tub! I posted pbotos on facebook and instagram and all my friends were envious. The town of Luray is nearby and offers several dining choices. One place we enjoyed was the Gathering Grounds. The town has a walking trail next the stream that runs through it. We are already making plans of a return trip.
This cabin offers a great retreat from the bustle of everyday life. Though there are nearby attractions, we were perfectly content to remain near the cabin for the duration of our stay. The cabin, hot tub, and property were clean and well kept and we had everything we could have wanted. The cabin was advertised as being remote and this was no exaggeration, we neither saw nor heard another person during our stay. The owners were very helpful during the booking process and offered plenty of clear instructions for getting to the cabin.
37 years ago my husband and I honeymooned at Skyline Drive, hiking, camping and staying in a lodge. We try to make the trip each year...staying in cabins. We still go to Shenandoah park and hike, and look for wildlife, but love coming 'home' to a cabin. Your cabin is one of our favorites. We loved the seclusion, the homey feeling, your outdoor fire pit, stone walkway, hot tub and seeing more stars at night. Thank you for a wonderful getaway.
My boyfriend and I stayed at High Ridge for 2 nights for a getaway and hiking in Shenandoah nearby. The cabin is tucked away up in the mountains on a dirt road. We loved the complete privacy and quiet. The oven/stove worked great, the place was very clean and stocked with extra towels and appliances...basically anything we could've needed was there. Sleeping overnight was no problem; it really feels like home.
