We escaped Washington, DC after the horrific June 29, 2012 storm that took power out in some areas for a week! Temps stayed in the upper 90s and we were looking to get to the cooler mountains and have power. The mountains were a bit cooler but the power was out there, too! Although power (e.g., A/C) was off, we decided to stay anyway- it was our anniversary. And- the location of Royal Oaks Cabins is so easy to get too, loved all the trees, the country store, & Cabin #5.
We opened the cabin windows, cooked on the grill, & took wonderful walks. Because of power being out in such a widespread area, we had to drive to Stanton, VA to get several bags of ice to keep the food in our cooler from spoiling. That was a minor inconvenience. We are an active duty Marine family so we are used to hardships and staying at the cabin was far from a hardship- it was delightful!
The owners, Keith & Sharon, could not have been more helpful. When we pulled into the parking area, we noticed that a beautiful area had been set up for an outdoor wedding. In the country store, Keith & Sharon were busy cutting up fruit for the catered reception, not an easy task with little light. They had a generator going and large tents set up with lights (running off the generator), what a lovely location for a wedding, and in Love Gap, VA! We observed the wedding, the reception afterwards, and couldn't believe how accommodating the owners were in the face of the heat, power being out, and (from what we observed & heard) some demanding members of the wedding party who were looking for someone to blame for the power being out! Keith & Sharon remained friendly, professional, and bent over backwards for them.
We made breakfast on the grill- bacon, eggs, & biscuits that were more like hockey pucks but eating on the porch, in the shade- what a great time! We made 'cowboy' coffee on the grill as well, pouring it through a filter into coffee cups- a bit chewy but made much better by being in such a beautiful place.
The cabin was very clean, had everything we could possibly want, lots of linens, dishes, etc., and when the power came back on- all the comforts of home (coffee maker, microwave, etc.). Although there is no cable service going to the resort, Keith & Sharon have a large selection of videos that you can check out and watch on the TVs in the cabins.
We will definitely stay there again! Sherando Lake is just down the road, a great place to swim, lay on the beach, hike, etc. And the resort is at mile marker 16 on the Blue Ridge Parkway so it's just off Interstate 64, easy to get to. Crabtree Falls is also near and the Royal Oaks Resort is a great place to use as a base of operations for exploring Humpback Ridge and so many other places along the Parkway.
Thank you, Keith & Sharon!

Room Tip: Resort has large chalets for larger families or several couples traveling together. We chose one of the cabins- very roomy! Or you can get an efficiency duplex. Nice shade all around which really helped with the power being off during part of our stay!

Perhaps our standards are too high. If you are looking for a special place away that includes soft linens, clean floors, fresh bedding, a cabin without cobwebs and spiders, you will need to keep looking. Royal Oaks Cabins was such a disappointment. The towels provided were of the poorest quality possible and they do not provide bath mats for either the shower or jaccuzi tub. When we had to ask for them at the office, we were given one hand towel and told by the owner that the linen service company can't tell the difference. Well as the owner, he certainly should be able to. We wouldn't use the shower without wearing flip flops because of lack of cleanliness. When we checked out, we didn't even get asked how our stay was or a thank you for coming. For us, there was no great customer service experience.

This is the first review I've ever written on a place we've stayed at, but if it prevents one other couple from making the same mistake, it's worth it. Enjoy your getaways somewhere else.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cabin 7 which lacks privacy.

Recently stayed here, had a wonderful time! The romance package was beautifully done, cabin was roomy and clean. Fireplace, open area, hot tub in the living room. Amazing cabin, and very nice owners! Will definitely go again!!

We stayed in cabin #7: at first we felt it was a bit in need of some TLC but we kind of grew into it. But it is a bit tired and could have been cleaned slightly better but perfectly okay. Bed was on the small side. Nice comfortable sofa. The kitchen area does need a bit of a face lift and I'm not sure I would have wanted to use some of the plates and pans... Some of the other cabins on the site look newer and might be better?

The cabins are right by the Blue Ridge Parkway which is very convenient and as an overall place it is peaceful (although one might imagine noise could carry if people were messing around outside at night), there is no TV reception (hooray!) but has free DVDs to borrow, and the on-site shop has a fair range of simple food, drink and small-shop stuff.

My wife and I were running to the Blue Ridge mountains to avoid Hurricane Irene and opted to find a cozy cabin rather than the run-of-the-mill hotel experience again. When we arrived at Royal Oaks and met Keith we decided to treat ourselves to a Chalet with a large deck, hot tub and terrific view of the mountains. By staying for the weekend we also enjoyed one of the Bluegrass concerts that Keith and his family sponsor at the resort. The chalet had a gas fireplace, spacious living room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and recreational facilities downstairs. Keith had items you might have forgotten for sale at the office and Waynesboro was accessible about 12 miles away. We'll definitely be back!
