Experience the serenity of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A place to unplug and unwind. A great room with soaring two story windows brings nature close. Raft the Shenandoah, visit wineries, or just hunker down and spend quality time with your loved ones.
Renovations! There is now beautiful laminate in the great room, a tiled entry and laundry, new washer, dryer, dishwasher and refrigerator, new carpet in all bedrooms, and renovated main bath.


Serenity is a cabin/chalet mix. The greatroom is 35' x 35' with 25' soaring ceilings and 2 ceiling fans to keep the air circulating.
The kitchen has beautiful hickory cabinets and a Jenn-Aire gas cooktop with electric convection oven to accommodate cooks in the group. There are enough dishes, glasses, and cutlery for a large group. Additional dishes and serveware are in the sideboard. Glass wine glasses and drinking glasses for use inside. Plastic wine glasses and drinking glasses for use outside. Standard supplies include paper dinner and appetizer plates, napkins, paper towels, heavy duty plastic cutlery.
Water is supplied from a well. There is a large holding/pressure tank and 65 gallon hot water heater to ensure uninterrupted water supply. All water in the house is filtered and softened with a state of the art filtration system. Shower towels, pool towels, and river towels, shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, bath soap, and hair dryers in each bathroom are provided.
Washer, dryer, wash soap, fabric softener, iron, and full size ironing board are provided.
Serenity is stocked with emergency sundries as well, including but not limited to: ibuprofen, acetaminophen, allergy tabs, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, deodorant, makeup remover, nail polish remover, hairspray, mousse, hair pins, feminine hygiene products, safety pins, and needle and thread.
Serenity is a work in progress. The original owners made some interesting choices when building this house. The fireplace is gas fired, even though we are in the middle of the woods ...go figure. (However, it is extremely convenient! Flip a switch and there is fire. During the hot months we turn the pilot off. ) There is beautiful rustic laminate in the greatroom and new carpeting (as of April 2017) in all bedrooms and the upper level.

Přístup pro hosty

There is a cypher lock on the door. You will be given a code that will be active beginning on the first day of our stay and it will deactivate on the last day of your stay.
Guests have access to the entire main floor and loft, the hot tub, laundry room, and grounds including fire pit. Use of the fire pit is, of course, dependent upon the current fire threat level. There is a standing rule prohibiting fires before 4PM. Please check on line for the current conditions and additional constraints in Clarke County. (Full disclosure - there is a full basement with which is NOT included in the rental. This is our personal space. Our clothes will be in the closets but we have made room for you. Our toiletries will be in the bathroom but there are guest toiletries and space for you. We may be on the premises during the rental to work on the yard or other projects on the grounds. We are cognizant of your privacy will not cause undue noise too early or late in the day.)
There is a gas barbeque for guest use. Barbeque tools are provided. There is an oak swing, 2 five foot picnic tables with benches, two patio lounge chairs, 4 nice sling chairs, and some small tables on the deck. There is a hammock and stand that you can set up where you like and 5 or 6 resin chairs that are easily toted to the firepit.

Vztahy s hosty

You will receive an email roughly two weeks prior to your stay. It will include directions (with pictures of the turns), your personal code for the cypher lock, and a soft copy of the house rules. The house rules will also be available during your stay in a tabbed binder at Serenity.
We may be on the premises to tend to chores on the grounds as the weather doesn't always cooperate during the week. We will say hello and stay out of your way.
There will be a short (30 minute) phone call to review the House Rules in advance of your stay so there are no misunderstandings in our expectations of our guests.

Další věci, které stojí za zmínku

There are more than 40 vineyards, 2 breweries, and a distillery within an hour's drive.
The Appalachian Trail passes within a quarter mile of the house. There are convenient access points on Rt. 7 and Morgan's Mill Road.
The Hollywood Casino and Race Track is 30 minutes away.
Watermelon Park and Campground offer kayaks and rafts to rent for just hanging around in the Shenandoah or for half day and full day river trips.
Check (URL HIDDEN) There is a lot of information about activities in the area. I can't hope to stay as up to date on activities and places of interest as they do on this site.
Bed configuration:
Three of the bedrooms have changeable bed configurations:
BR1, Master Bedroom: King bed, Pillow top mattress, upstairs, in the master suite.[ 2 persons. 16' x 20'] An extra air mattress (or two) could be put in here.
BR2: King bed, Sleep number mattress. One of the twin trundles could be in here as well. [2 or 3 persons. 12' x 12']
BR3: 2 day beds with pop-up trundles, can be 2 twins, 3 twins, or 1 king and 1 twin. [2 or 3 persons. 12' x 12']
BR4: 1 day bed, can be 2 twins or one King. [2 persons. 8' x 12']
Bonus (5th bed)room This is an odd little upstairs room far to the side so the ceiling of the room is never flat, it tapers from the tall left side, where it touches the wall about 12 feet up, to the floor on the right side 12 feet away. (Picture a tall right triangle.) Two twin mattresses (with box springs) or these can be pushed together to make a king. These mattresses are light enough to haul around and put them where you want/need them to be. (Perhaps in the master suite for children.) [2 persons. 9' x 12']
We have this room set up as a TV room/hideaway. There is a 32" LCD TV and DVD player. Perfect for anyone needing quiet space.
Overflow: La-Z-Boy Sofa and love seat each have two very comfy recliners that fold nearly flat. 4 persons.
BR1 - King
BR2 - King or King & 1 Trundle
BR3 - King & Twin or 2 Twins or 3 Twins
BR4 - King or 2 Twins
BR5 - King or 2 Twins
Couch & Loveseat- 4 recliners
Floorspace - Limited only by your imagination ;-)

Some housekeeping items to consider before you make your final decision:
There is NO CABLE.
No turkey fryers. No aerial fireworks. No one under 16 in the Hot Tub. NO exceptions.
There are no curtains over the window in the master bath. These windows are 2.5 stories off the ground, you can't see the house from the private lane because of the trees, and there are 5 acres between our house and the nearest. I don't intend to put any more curtains up. (Just adding the disclosure because the lack of curtains flustered a recent guest.) The bath on the main level is equipped with privacy film on the window.

Serenity on Toy Hill was such a lovely home for our large group to stay at for a long wedding weekend. The house is a short drive away from a cute downtown area and is in walking distance of the gorgeous Shenandoah River--it was the perfect place for a group of old friends to spend some time together in between wedding festivities. Our only wish was that we could have extended the weekend a bit longer to enjoy the nearby wineries and water activities a bit more. Cheryl was easy to communicate with and the house was clean, well-stocked, and incredibly comfortable. Thank you for a lovely stay, Cheryl!

Odpověď od Cheryl:
Lindsay, thank you for the great review! We understand that being 1/2 hour away from any convenience can make a getaway not so relaxing if you've overlooked something. So, using our many years of travel with and with out children, we try to anticipate any eventuality and prepare for them. Please come back again!

Cheryl's place is wonderful. It comfortably held our group and was convenient to several wineries. Cheryl was a gracious host and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. One thing to note- the road to the house is dirt/gravel and limos can't really turn around in the driveway. We just walked down to a more main road (a little under half a mile) to meet the limo. It wasn't a big deal at all, just something to note if you are planning on using a limo for your group.

Thank you, Donna. I'm sorry you were disappointed in the poor wifi reception. (I do explicitly state in the house information that there is spotty coverage.) A small price for the peace and quiet. As we say in the description...unplug and unwind!

This house is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures! It was a perfect space for our group of 12, and everyone had a great time. Though we had hoped to take advantage of some outdoor activities, rain kept us inside most of the weekend, so we were lucky to have such a large and well-appointed space. We enjoyed watching movies on the projector screen, cooking in the amazing kitchen, and sitting on the porch swing in between rain storms! Cheryl made sure we had everything we needed, and was very flexible with our group, even helping us recover some items we left behind afterward. She takes excellent care of the house and prides herself in being a great host. I highly recommend this house for a quiet weekend in the woods.

Cheryl's home was the PERFECT spot for our girls getaway/bachelorette weekend. Secluded in nature, spacious, open concept, comfortable. We ate all meals at the house, and the large table was perfect. Plenty of dishes and a large dishwasher made everything easy. As a cook, I found the kitchen VERY well-equipped, and appliances and gadgets were good quality. Everything is well-labeled, so it wasn't long before I knew my way around. The girls loved the hot tub, coloring supplies, and we all loved hanging around, relaxing. Even when I was cooking in the kitchen, I was a part of everything. The bathrooms are well stocked with ANY item you may have forgotten/need extra. The kitchen has tons of stuff for use including coffee, olive oil, all spices and herbs, etc. Cheryl welcomed us to use anything there. Everything was great quality, and we all felt comfortable. A few things to note: this house is the owner's second house, and not just a rental property. I get the impression they use it often. I've never rented a cabin where I felt the presence of the owner so much. She let me know she was going to come by the property on Saturday morning to do some work in the yard. We saw her on the way out for a group walk and chatted for a quick minute. She was still there when we got back, and she had to come in to get a few things she'd left behind. Not saying that as a bad thing, just an observation that has been different than my other rental experiences. She lists a lot of rules (and penalty fees!), but nothing outrageous, and very easy to follow. I would definitely rent this cabin again. It was perfect for our large group and great location for beer tasting (what we did) or wine tasting (what we could have done!). Not too far from DC, and definitely in nature. Cheryl was a great hostess and was very generous to me and our group. Enjoy!
