20 Cozy Shenandoah Cabins to Book This Winter

Last Updated on January 2, 2022 by Erin Gifford

It’s hard to beat a long weekend in a comfy cabin that’s a stone’s throw from Shenandoah National Park and the hiking trails along Skyline Drive.

There are cabin rentals all across the Shenandoah Valley with access to wineries, breweries, and of course, nature, wildlife and winter hiking. Hot tubs, too.

Since all of the in-park lodging options are closed for the season, including Big Meadows Lodge and Lewis Mountain cabins, cabin rentals are a great option.
