Reviewed 12 November 2013

Our stay was Nov 11th and was quiet as the ‘leaf’ peeping season on Skyline Drive had pass, but was still enjoyable for the 1-night stay. The cabins are not in Shanadoah mountains but are located close enough and about a 4.5 mile drive to Thorton Gap entrance on Skyline Drive. We had reserved Cabin #4, the smallest of the cabins, and found it comfortable enough for a one-night stay (for 1-2 people), but would recommend getting a larger cabin if you’re planning a get away longer than two days just for a little more space and amenities. The ‘cabin’ itself was the size of a self-contained hotel room (w/queen-size bed) with nothing more than a refrigerator and coffee pot. If you’re coming for a getting away from modern distractions, but still want entertainment, you can have a TV provided at an additional charge and delivery charge, or enjoy sitting on the porch in front of each cabin or on the patio at the back of each of the cabins that back up to the creek that runs behind the cabins.

If you want a real wilderness cabin experience, you will find all these cabins not isolated from each other but located about 10 feet apart and cannot tell if your neighbors noise would be an issue as the night I stayed there were no occupants on either side of the cabin. Be aware skylights are in the bathroom and the bed, if early daylight in the summer is a problem.

There is a restaurant on the facility, which makes it convenient since you are located about 10 min. away to anything in Luray, the closest, if the restaurant is close during the period of your stay. Base-board heating is in the bedroom and bathroom and had hard time regulating the temperature as the thermostat use a ‘zone’ range versus specific degree setting.

The cabin has Wi-Fi access, but be sure to get the password before the office closes for the evening.

Room Tip: Bring hair dryer, if needed, and recommend larger cabin if staying more than 1-night.

We have stayed here on several occasions (cabin #5) and love it. The staff is very friendly and the cabin was very clean and cozy. There are no Tv's or phones so you can truly relax (but they do have wifi if you do choose to bring a laptop or tablet ). You can sit on the deck and enjoy your coffee and listen to the babbling brook that runs behind the cabins. The cabin does have a microwave, small refrigerator and a coffee maker The cabins are not secluded, they are right on the highway but the traffic slows and it gets very quiet at night. They are located only a few minutes from the entrance of Skyline Drive and a few minutes from Luray. There is a restaurant right by the cabins so you do not have to travel far for a meal. We plan on returning next year.

Due to uncontrollable delays in arriving at Cabin #4 at a reasonable hour, they were kind enough to put the key under the mat so we could get in at 2 AM. I was concerned we would have trouble finding the cabin due to the late hour and darkness, but it was very easy. The cabin is along a highway, but we rarely heard any traffic.
The room was a very good size for the 2 of us. It was very clean and did not have any funky odors. Clean towels were provided every day.
The bed made a lot of noise, and after about the 3rd day, became uncomfortable.
Unfortunately we could not use the deck, as it rained very hard the 5 days we were there. We did sit on the front porch on a couple occasions to have our coffee.

Beautiful little cabin! The decor was nice. Cabin was VERY clean. Enjoyed the hot tub. Perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway. Only drawback is that they're located on the high way, but wasn't too bad since the traffic dies down at night. Would definitely go back!!

My wife and I spent the weekend here, staying in Cabin #3, and it was awesome! The cabin was clean, roomy, and had a hot tub smack dab in the middle! The service from the staff was excellent, and the Cabin was convenient to everything in the area...Luray, Shenadoah, Skyline, etc. The on-site restaurant was a great "country-style" place with a nice family atmosphere. We will definitely go here again!!

My husband and I stayed there in August 2013. The cabin was wonderful, clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. No phones, no TV just relaxation. Highly recommend it for great weekend getaway. Enjoyed sitting on the porches (front or back) and just watching the creek and the traffic going by.

2nd time we have stayed at Brookside. Stayed in cabin #3. Very nice CLEAN cabin with fireplace, sitting room, nice large bed and best of all a hot tub in the middle of the living room. The perfect place to relax and the Brookside diner is just a short one minute walk away and they have excellent food and hospitality. Had a nice dinner. Sat out back behind the cabin at the ede of the creek and just relaxed. Will definitely go back again soon. It's a refreshing change of pace from the typical hotel/motel experience.
