Shenandoah Cabin Resort with Horse Farm and Marina
Description from the owner
This property was nominated for 2011 video production. Watch the video in our Photos section.
Please note: Newly renovated cabins have one King bed and one Queen bed (and Queen pull-out sofa) and no in-cabin jacuzzi. I'm not sure if all are renovated yet. Non-renovated have a king and 2 twins and maybe a jacuzzi. Some have been removed.
Also, unless it is a 4+ day stay, I will only be able to book high season time 45 days in advance; Memorial Day thorough mid-October.
**A FIRE DESTROYED THE LODGE LAST SPRING SO THE INDOOR POOL AND RESTAURANT ARE NOT AVAILABLE** However, there is a deli serving sandwiches and pizza and the like.
Escape to a quiet retreat at the foothills of Virginia*s Blue Ridge Mountains. Shenandoah Crossing, a Bluegreen resort located in Gordonsville, VA, is a spacious, four-season resort offering guests a privately owned 18-hole championship golf course, sports on a 60-acre lake and a most relaxing atmosphere. Located on over 1,000 acres of rolling hillside and lush pasture lands with a scenic 60-acre lake, Shenandoah Crossing is the perfect place for those who love the outdoors.
The ambiance at Shenandoah Crossing reflects history and wilderness. The resort combines an old country estate and horse farm, with acres of wilderness in a pristine area that lies just beyond the Shenandoah Valley.
Indoor and outdoor activities abound from mini-golf, playgrounds, horseback riding, carriage rides, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs to tie dye and other crafts, air hockey, game rooms, basketball, tennis courts and a restaurant/tavern on-site, you won't need to leave the resort for constant activity or relaxation; your choice! Pontoon boats and other watercraft are available at the marina for an afternoon of fishing or just hanging out on Lake Izac.
Depending on when you visit, there's a host of planned activities for all ages at Shenandoah Crossing, including bonfires, haunted trail walks, storytelling and a variety of crafts.
For a splashing good time, visit Watership Harbour, our large pool and recreation area located near Friendship Square pavilion. Complete with expansive main pool, an Activity Pool, two hot tubs and an interactive Spray Ground, this "mini water park" is fun for all ages. The main lodge also features an indoor pool and a beautiful outdoor pool and kids' pool with a lake view.
In Friendship Square you'll also find the General Store, the Traders Market deli and Freedom Hall where movies and the Musket Ball Dance are held. There are also plenty of arts and crafts for the whole family, including flag making, candle making and more. Make sure to check to see what's happening during your visit. There is also an arcade, fitness center, giant chessboard, horseshoe pits and equipment rental.
At Nickajack Park the kids enjoy playscape. Also in this area is where you can board a seasonal shuttle to other parts of the resort, or meet up for organized hikes and excursions.
Guest storytellers, lectures, sing-a-longs and many other activities take place in the Liberty Amphitheater.
Get back to nature with a hike down one of our five themed hiking trails. Trails are interactive and play host to kids' games, colonial trivia, wildlife education, and ghost tours.
Don't forget to head down to Sallie's Stables where you can schedule a trail ride, carriage rides and other equestrian activities. Our picturesque network of hiking and bridle trails are the perfect way to enjoy the wilderness around the resort. Our seasoned trail horses take you into the woods and across the historic fields. Our Equestrian Center, home to over two dozen horses, is a featured attraction for all to enjoy.
Our rustic cabin has a wood-burning fireplace, full kitchen (including full sized appliances and dishwasher), 2 bedrooms/2 full baths and a pull out sofa to comfortably sleep 6. Screened in porch and gas grill as well.

We had a wonderful time with four kids. There are many on site activities during the winter. Some are no charge like swimming, mini golf and various sports. Others like the horses are very reasonably priced. The cabin was clean comfortable & kid friendly! Also was very conveniently located to go to Shenandoah Ntl Park for hiking and Massanutten for snow tubing

We stayed in the cabin 12 and this place is good for a couple of days when you want to get away into the woods. For the price we paid, we got a good deal but Internet was really bad. We were pretty much cut off from everybody for a good two days. It was good in its own way but if you are one of those people who regularly check his/ her office email via Wifi or Internet, then this is not your place. All other conveniences were good but we felt that the lighting was a little less in the family room. We had to keep the lights on all the time when we were there. Lake is right behind the cabin but other than taking a few pics of the lake there is not a lot that you can do. I wish the patio faced the lake instead of being in the other side. That would give it a nice view.

My wife and I stayed in the cabins May 2012 and were very pleased with our experience. We were expecting just a cabin in the woods but this turned out to be so much more. The "Shenandoah Cabin Resort with Horse Farm & Marina" is just that a resort/vacation setting. We requested a privet off the beaten path cabin and the owner did a great job at accommodating this request. We stayed in Cabin #10. You could not get any further away than this cabin as it was the tip of the property. The cabin itself was positioned catty-cornered so that the living room windows all looked out over the lake and no other cabins or people were in view. Earlier reviews mention that the cabins need updating and while that may be true they are absolutely fine and we found them to have more amenities than we expected. The stainless steel Weber grill was a nice touch on the deck and we grilled most of our dinners. The resort staff was friendly and helpful, the grounds were beautiful and the location was excellent. Each day we took a small trip to the local wineries, to hike in the nearby Shenandoah national Park or to simply drive on Skyline Drive. This was exactly the getaway we needed and exactly the right location! In the off season this is a great spot for a quiet couples or family getaway and we can imagine that in the summer it is a hopping family destination. Thanks for making this rental available - we loved it!

We needed some time away from the city and some peace and quiet - we found it at this place! Our place was clean, quiet and overlooked a beautiful lake. Molly was attentive and personable with customer service. We recommend this place!

I completely loved my stay. The cabin was great roomy and fit my family well. We had a blast at the pool, the recreational room, and all over the resort. I regret not being able to ride the horses but I hope I get to go back sometime this year and then do that as well. The area around the resort is breath taking. We roamed all the way to Luray one day and then the natural bridge the other. so many great things to do in the area. Also Going through Molly has been a great experience since this was my first large vacation. A+++ Thank so much for the great vacation Molly!

We had a great time - the area was sooo very peaceful. The horses were amazing. My daughter got to ride a "youngster" who was bigger than any horse she's ridden. She said her legs were almost sticking straight out at the sides because the horse was so wide - and she has very long legs! The cabin was welcoming and instantly felt like home. Very clean & organized with great views and lots of light coming in. Nice screened-in porch that cam in handy for muddy boots after a walk. Everyone was pretty friendly and very helpful. Although it was cold we were able to walk to the gameroom and work off some of the pies and cookies we ate with challenges on the air hockey table and pool table. Forgot to bring swimsuits for the indoor sauna, but loved the long-walks around the property to the general store for cocoa and the equestrian center. Great place to unplug and do family activities - even with teens!

The cabin was very cozy. We enjoyed the smell of the wood inside.
But the cabin would be perfect for 4 ppl, not 5 or 6.
My 14 yo daughter was sleeping on the pull-out sofa in the leaving room and she was very uncomfortable. The sofa mattress was very bumpy and not even. We put all our blankets on the mattress to make it a bit softer in order to help her to sleep. Also the sofa was very dusty inside and my daughter had allergy problem.
I called service desk and ask them to bring us a new mattress if possible. They were very friendly but they couldn't find another mattress.
Also the master bathroom shower head should be fixed. it sprays water all around. That was not big problem anyway.
We enjoyed outdoor pools. All indoor pools were closed for some reason but we got lucky with the weather anyway and spent all our time outside.
We took a ride on horses and rented a boat. That was just an excellent experience.
Our overall experience was very good and we had fun time.

I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the cabin, as well as the various activities offered at the resort. My daughter and I had a great time with our friends. From swimming, to horseback riding, to mini golf, to scavenger hunts and tie dye organized by the office, there was never a dull moment.

This was my families first trip to a cabin. I
have an 8 year old and a 2 year old boy with
special needs. Everything you need is already
there for you in the cabin. It is nice and cozy
and the staff are all helpful and friendly. My 8

we should move there.
The outdoor pools and hot tub are amazing. The
