Welcome to this charming cottage in the Blue Ridge Mountains with magnificent views overlooking the Shenandoah Valley!

Get away to an alternate reality of stress-free country living.

Very Good

“A perfect stay, as always”

Reviewed 30 May 2018

Another great getaway weekend to our favorite cabin in the woods. Chris and Steve are excellent hosts and think of everything which makes for a very relaxing stay. The cabin was spotless and equipped with every amenity we could need. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the sunset over the mountains. We'll be back soon.

Response from the owner We are glad you had another great stay. We enjoy hosting your family and look forward to your next visit. It is great that you explore the area. You’ll have to try tubing/kayaking or canoeing the Shenandoah and also try the canopy zip lining. Thank you!

Lovely anniversary weekend. Owners are amazing which makes the already well maintained and perfectly located property seem even better... Already checking my calendar for next trip!

Response from the owner We were glad to host you for another visit and are glad you had a great anniversary. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Thank you!

All the comforts of home and then some while we celebrated our anniversary. Gorgeous sunsets,a full moon and lightning bugs at night. During the day, we explored Skyline Drive. The surrounding wineries were a delight. The views were beautiful. Birdwatching from the deck allowed us to observe the songbirds really close with the cabin's binoculars. We ate out a couple times at Thornton River Grille in Sperryville, but cooking in the well organized kitchen was a pleasure. Chris and Steve checked in with us via email a few times to ensure we were doing OK. That was very considerate! We requested country fresh eggs and were not disappointed. Wish we could buy eggs like those at home!

Response from the owner Thank you for being our guests. We really enjoyed hosting you and glad you had fun exploring as well as just hanging around the cabin and deck. The wildlife is fun to watch as you even just sit in the hot tub. Yes, we are very lucky to be able to secure the eggs from the neighbors. They are superior to store eggs and were probably gathered that morning. We look forward to hosting you again soon.

“Great all around”

The cabin was absolutely amazing. Spectacularly clean. Really added that touch of home. The view is so much better in person. Every little detail was taken into consideration. The work of Chris and Steve really showed in every aspect of the home. We had an amazing weekend just relaxing in the hot tub and sittting around the fireplace. Can't say enough how great the place was. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you again!!

Response from the owner Thank you for being our guests and your kind comments. Yes, at this time of year the fireplace is very cozy to sit by after a soak in the tub. We look forward to hosting you and friends soon.

“Awesome place to relax and unwind, with beautiful scenery everywhere!”

This cabin provided a perfect place for my husband and I to get away for some rest, relaxation, and awesome hiking in the Shenandoah National Park! We enjoyed beautiful views, lots of privacy, a very comfortable cabin fully equipped with all the necessary provisions, and a luxurious hot tub on the spacious deck. We especially appreciated the plethora of brochures and maps that were available to help us make the most of navigating through our daytime hikes in the park. This place is a gem; it is very welcoming with a great location and provides lots of amenities. We would definitely come back again.

Response from the owner Thank you for being our guests and for your comments. We try hard to think of everything to make our guests visits an enjoyable and positive experience. Yes, there is so much to do nearby you can't do it all in one visit. We hope to host you again soon.

I spent an amazing weekend at this beautiful cabin.. My husband and I planned to go to local wineries but the cabin was so perfect that we ended up just staying at the cabin enjoying the hot tub and enjoying the bottle of wine the owners left for us. We arrived late Friday night to a beautifully lit cabin.. The owners turned the lights on for us bc we were arriving late.. Chris and Steve were wonderful with communication and information I would recommend this cabin to everyone and I definitely plan on returning very very soon! Also I left my earrings there and they were gracious enough to offer to send them to me.. If there were 10 stars they would get that rating from me! Thanks again!

Response from the owner Thank you for being our guests and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Rainbow View. We look forward to hosting you again soon and then you can visit some of our many local wineries.

I was happy to see the house so clean; we appreciate that! From New Mexico originally and was delighted to see the Southwestern décor. You are very accommodating and have thought of everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay celebrating our anniversary and will highly recommend your establishment to our family, friends and colleagues.
