FAQ / Cabin Rules: Check-in 4:00 PM Check-out 11:00 AM Because of the remote nature of the cabin, internet is provided by a satellite provider.

If you don't think you will use the firewood or would like to bring your own, please let us know! We are more than happy to refund that to you.

We truly enjoyed our time spent at the Fish Trap, as a family we try to get away from the hustle and bustle a few times a year and take time to enjoy each other. We rented several cabins in the area and especially enjoyed Fish Trap as it was right nest door to another rental that we had also rented. Our families could walk to each other's vacation homes and therefore share the campfire pit and extra quality time together. We didn't plan on sight seeing on this trip but we did venture into Luray Caverns for an afternoon. We enjoyed our time just hanging out together and along the river.

Our 2nd year coming here and gets better each time! Gorgeous house on the perfect piece of property. Backs right up to the river which makes for an amazing backdrop of the huge fire pit. Can’t wait to go again this summer and then next winter!!! Highly recommend it if you are looking for a place to just unplug and relax.

Perfect location for a relaxing getaway from the everyday hustle and bustle (no cell or wireless) but minutes away from town for shopping and the caverns. Great fishing is a stones throw away from the deck. Brand new cabin with all of the necessities to live comfortably.

I’ve been visiting Luray and specifically this stretch of the river for a long time. It’s one of mine and now my family’s favorite places to get away for a long weekend. We usually go for a more rustic place but decided to splurge a bit for wife’s birthday and book fish trap. It definitely did not disappoint. The house was well kept and clean, which is neither here nor there for us because we spend most our time outside. I do have to say I’ve stayed at cabins all up and down S page valley road and this is the nicest lot I’ve stayed at to date. Plenty of space for kids and dogs to roam. Beautiful flat yard perfect for games and activities. Gentle incline up to the cabin and a beautiful stretch of water as they all are. Perfect for a weekend with the family or a few friends. Couldn’t recommend more. I dream to own one of these one day!

Well-appointed riverfront cabin with nice furnishings, comfortable furniture, and multiple places to sit and relax. Upscale linens and higher quality cookware. Finer hot tub. Don't forget the family dog. Lots of stairs that may be harder for less mobile people to handle. Easy river access from the property.

We stayed at Fishtrap for our first getaway since Covid. It was perfect. We have a 4 year old and 2 year old and they are pretty sure we should move in permanently. The house was impeccably clean and well appointed. The river was beautiful and calming. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

The cabin was great with all the amenities we needed...especially enjoyed the view of the river. We had great family time on the river and enjoyed the hot tub after kayaking...did not use their canoes but brought our own kayaks.

We stayed at Fish Trap in September and the entire experience was fantastic. Great customer service from the rental team, and easy arrival/departure etc.. The house was amazing as was the property. We used the fire pit and grill every day. Relaxed, canoed, and fished. Highly recommend.

We loved the new cabins in Fish trap village!! Right on the river (just before number 8), can push canoes straight in and can arrange for the outriggers to pick up at 11 or 13 and bring back to the cabin. We loved fishing and skimming rocks right off the bank!! The fire pit was wonderful and the space between the cabin and the river was perfect for multiple games of tag!! The cabin had everything we needed, the hot tub was clean and the view breathtaking!! Already working out when we can go back!!

My family just stayed two nights at Fish Trap on the Shenandoah. Only two nights because that is all they had available, we would have stayed more. Everything was perfect! The house super clean and had all of the amenities to make our stay comfortable. We weren't able to use the two lovely canoes provided as the river was a bit too active for us but hopefully the next time we stay. Our family had a wonderful time cooking smores on the firepit, fishing, playing board/card games, doing a puzzle... just relaxing which is what we all needed! Luray Caverns is minutes away! This property is amazing!
