“So great we keep coming back”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Since it is so easy to get to from DC, we have stayed at Walden four times now, and will probably continue doing two one-week stays each year. The cabin is beautiful and very well built and maintained. We have stayed in the midst of freezing winters and scalding summers and the cabin is always a comfortable temperature. The gas fireplace and hot tub are great in the winter and walking access to the river is great to cool off in the summer. I would love it if there were a hammock somewhere for reading, but the chairs down by the river are fine if not super cozy (maybe we will bring cushions on our next visit).

We bring our dog for a "get away from the city" vacation and she adores the opportunity to run around the fields off leash. We have periodically seen horses and deer on the property, and have met some of the neighbors and their dogs. The cabin is pretty secluded - this is a getaway location and not a life of the party location, which is exactly what we want.

The kitchen is pretty fully stocked and there is a grocery store in Luray. The washer and dryer are handy especially since you use your towels in the river, the hot tub, etc. In the summer, there is a hose on the side of the house so you can clean off the dog before going back inside.

In case you have to work on vacation, the wifi connection is great although phone service is hit or miss. And I love that we just grab the key when we get there and don't have to go through any formal check in or check out process.

The pillows are a little weak, so throw yours in the car and bring it with you if you are a picky sleeper. We even have to use a noise machine because it is SO QUIET at night!

Management Response
7 May 2013
We are glad you enjoyed your time at our cabin. With having just finished building Walden, we had a lot of extra firewood around and we were glad we could provide it for your stay. There is nothing like an evening around a fire under the stars. Thank you for choosing Woodside Cabins for your getaway.
