It’s hard to beat a long weekend in a beautiful cabin that’s a stone’s throw from Shenandoah National Park and miles of trails along Skyline Drive.
There are rental cabins all across the Shenandoah Valley with access to wineries, breweries, and of course, nature, wildlife and great hiking. Hot tubs, too.
When in-park lodging options are closed for the season, including Big Meadows Lodge and Lewis Mountain cabins, private cabins are a great option.
Here are 20 comfy cabin rentals available on Airbnb. Ranging from rustic to luxurious, these cozy cabins are a fantastic way to revel in nature.
#1: Blue Moon Log Cabin (Luray)
It’s easy to relax at Blue Moon Log Cabin, which is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Watch the sun set or take a soak in the hot tub.
It’s an easy walk to the Shenandoah River, as well as to outfitters in Luray if you want to rent a canoe or kayak, even inflatable tubes, to get out on the water.
This two-bedroom cabin sleeps up to six guests. It’s also an easy drive to local attractions, like world famous Luray Caverns.
#2: Bearloga (Stanley)
This mountain view cabin near Luray is a short drive from Shenandoah National Park, allowing easy access to Central District hikes, like Hawksbill Summit.
