“Restful Retreat”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife, daughter, dog and I stayed at Bear Timbers from June 26 to July 2, 2016. The cabin was well maintained and had all we needed for a restful wee. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the back porch was a nice place to rest. The hot tub was well maintained and a great place to unwind. The cabin was next to another house but there was nobody in it so it was very quiet and peaceful. It was about a 100 yard walk to the river but it was a nice and peaceful walk. Luray was only about a 10 minute ride.

“Quick Spring Break”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Cabin overall was nice. Needs some deep cleaning in the kitchen area. Being on the river was great. Kids enjoyed fishing and canoes. Quick ride to town and to the Caverns. Spent time hiking as well. Beds are not very comfortable and the beds in the 2nd bedroom were not made, just had sheets laying on the side of bed. We had to haul our own trash off, which was not ideal, but even worse on Sunday checkout when the trash center near the school was closed
Lastly, toilet in master would not stop running, so we ended up having to use the one bath.

John, thanks for the feedback. Sounds like our housekeeper missed that running toilet - we'll make sure it's fixed. We'll also check into the kitchen situation. We pride ourselves on cleanliness, so we'll double down on that and figure out where it went wrong this time.

It's interesting that you note the beds are not very comfortable. The mattresses throughout the house are actually brand new as of a year ago and we are consistently complimented by other guests on the quality. :-) Mattresses can be that way - one person hates what another person loves. We typically aim for a middle-of-the-road firmness so that it appeals to a wide group. Do you usually like really soft or really firm?

Have a good week,

-Paul

“Not what it seems...”
Reviewed 24 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The place was very nice. However, we were disappointed that there was a neighbor so close as this was not mentioned on the web site. We were also under the impression that the river would be closer than it was..

We have planted screening trees surrounding the property to add privacy. They are not to their full height yet, but they are fast-growing and soon should resolve this issue. The rental property is directly on the river, simply the river is at the opposite end of the property from the house per local zoning regulations.

“Beautiful time of year and great cabin...only wish it was closer to riverfront”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The cabin was perfect for the four of us (two couples). Everything we needed was there (and then some!) Nothing bad to say about the cabin except two minor things - wish the closer, outdoor firepit was directly in back of the house for more privacy (it was in the front yard next to the road), and wish the cabin was closer to the riverfront. From the pictures online it was hard to tell how far/close it was from the river; I thought it was in the backyard from one pictures I saw and was looking forward to just viewing it from the deck. However, it is a short 100 yard (?) walk down a path thru some trees and a grassy area. The river view is amazing though once you get there. In the summer it would a fantastic place to hang out (there is a fire pit there as well). Also, we weren't sure, if we started canoeing down the river how we would get back so we didn't use the canoes (the current looked pretty strong to come upstream). Given that the property was away from riverfront, and pretty close to other properties/neighbors (its not 'secluded'), I feel it was a bit overpriced ($300+/night).

We enjoyed our stay at this very cute cabin in Luray. The information said riverfront and had a picture but didnt mention that it was about a quarter mile down a little road to the back of the property. It was a good location for things to do in Luray and had wonderful amenities but I just wish the neighbors werent so close next door. I really wanted peace and quiet and sometimes they had music going. This is a great place to stay but just dont expect riverfront or wilderness.
