“Wonderful relaxing cabin with great views and amenities”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a wonderful three night stay in the cabin with our dog. The cabin was quiet and peaceful and was plenty spacious for the three of us. It was very clean and the kitchen was extremely well-stocked with practically any cooking utensil one could need (and was clearly labelled for ease of locating specific items). The bottle of wine that welcomed us was a nice touch. The many maps and other brochures etc for local attractions were also helpful. We also very much enjoyed the hosts' recommendation of a Front Royal restaurant -- Blue Wing Frog. Shenandoah National Park's Front Royal entrance is a short drive away with a number of dog-friendly hiking trails accessible from that entrance. The deck (with a gate that closes to keep the dog from running off) was a nice peaceful place to sit and read, and we enjoyed soaking in the hot tub after hiking. Check-in and check-out were very easy with the detailed instructions and directions sent by the hosts after confirming our booking. The hosts were also very responsive to questions and were very accommodating when sometime after booking, we needed to move the reservation earlier by a day (and the cabin was available). We also especially appreciated being able to bring our dog with us. We highly recommend this cabin and would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area. Thanks Chris and Steve.

“Another wonderful stay in this well appointed cabin in the woods.”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We just returned from our second stay at this wonderful cabin in the woods. As with the first time, everything was perfect. The cabin is very clean and organized and comes fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed watching all the birds flock to the feeders and spent many hours relaxing on the deck. Our girls really enjoyed the jacuzzi as well. This is the perfect place to come for a few nights to get away from it all and we are so glad we found it. Thanks again Steve and Chris, we will be back.

“Beautiful views, great location, all the amenities you could ask for!”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

As cabin rentals go, this is probably one of the all-around nicest we have stayed in. After hiking in nearby Shenandoah Natl Park, we got to relax in the hot tub while enjoying the beautiful views. There is something for everyone in this cabin and so many little unexpected surprises! We really enjoyed the wine tasting at Fox Meadows. My husband loved the fully equipped kitchen and the info on the hiking trails came in handy. Would definitely recommend a stay here!

“Within 15 minutes of being in this place, I knew it was going to be superb. DELICIOUS WELL WATER !”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is a bit overdue (Sorry !). As the title states, 15 minutes, I knew it was going to be awesome- I just had to email Steve and Chris an hour after arriving letting them know that. When they say you don't need anything but your clothes, and food for meals - they ain't kidding ! This place was FULLY equipped. You don't have to worry about anything ! Immense hospitality ! They had awesome little snacks available as well, and stuff to make smores! Oh, and also, as they mention. Don't bother bringing bottled water - the WELL WATER IS DELICIOUS ! Seriously. This was a perfect getaway for my fiance and I. The hot tub was awesome too. The deck - amazing, beautiful, cozy, beautiful view. This place literally took away all of our worries and stresses in life. And thats exactly what a vacation should do. We most certainly will be back. Last but not least, Chris and Steve really really strive to make you feel comfortable, and they are very detailed with directions getting there, where things are at in the cabin and on the deck. - mission accomplished guys. :)

“Beautiful and Serene Moutain Getaway”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My Wife and I came to the Rainbow View Cabin for a peaceful getaway for our 30th anniversary. Our expectations were immediately exceeded when we arrived, such a beautiful place and setting. The owners, Chris and Steve, have completely thought of any need you may have, including a bottle of wine upon your arrival. The amazing deck and hot tub contributed to awesome evenings enjoying the mountain views and beautiful sunsets. We would recommend a stay at Rainbow View Cabin to all, and we have, to friends and family. We are already planning our next visit. Thanks again Chris and Steve.

“Top Rating from Experienced Cabin Goers with Dogs”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My hubby and I drove from Ohio to stay in this beautiful cabin with our two dogs. We've been to a lot of different cabins from a lot of hosts, and this may be the best appointed place we've stayed. Really more of a cottage than cabin, but EXCELLENT none the less. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine, a birthday card for me, and treats, bowls, and potty bags for the dogs. Even a gate installed on the deck to keep the dogs in! We really appreciated all the area maps and brochures to help decide on things to do nearby. Couldn't hope for a more decked out place to spend our vacation. Thank you, Chris and Steve! Highly recommended.
