David and his staff will make this getaway exactly what you want. Whether it be a relaxed private weekend or a chance to meet new people they will make it happen! You will get your money's worth and then some by staying here! Can't say enough about the professionalism and kindness that David and his other staff show my girlfriend and I during our stay. I would highly recommend staying here for a quick or long getaway from the city!

This place was wonderful! It is a nice little place for a couples getaway. Everything we needed was right in our room but if what's in there isn't enough, the communal kitchen across the hall had it. All of the simple touches through the room and the property made for a perfect weekend. The resort itself is about 45 minutes away from skyline drive. Overall this was a perfect choice for my new fiance and I to enjoy the weekend. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a place near Shanendoah national park.

This was a perfect getaway for our mini-moon. We stayed Sunday to Tuesday in Suite D with basically no other guests on the property. It was quiet and had amazing amenities -- pictures don't do it justice. We cooked every meal in the fabulous Castle kitchen and ate outdoors as much as possible. My husband went for a scenic run and the only snafu was a yapping dog in the property who chased him but didn't seem harmful. We were close enough to tour many breweries and the beautiful lavender farm at White Oak. Our only regret is not booking for longer!

I stayed here with my girlfriend for two nights. It was a surreal experience, even with other guests around it felt like we had the whole facility to ourselves. The sauna was really cool and the fresh coffee provided in the rooms was super high quality. Highly recommend this place for a calm getaway to the mountains.
