There are two acres of land so you'll have plenty of room to play a game of soccer, toss the frisbee or play other games from our equipment box. Read a book at at any of our three shaded picnic tables. Explore the stream running along the property. There is also a covered area to park motorcycles.
Lake Arrowhead is just a short walk down our quiet gravel road and free to use. Maintained by the town of Luray, you can pay a small fee to rent canoes, paddle boats, or enjoy the beach area with a lifeguard. If you have your own boat, it's free to put in. There's also a trail that winds around the lake for a great hike close by.
Shenandoah National Park:
We're only five miles from the entrance to the Shenandoah National Park. We buy a day or week pass into the park to drive the 110-mile Skyline Drive. Or choose from the approximately 100 day hikes (of varying difficulty) that show off the Park's many waterfalls and vistas. If you want to get 5 feet away from a deer, you'll be able to. Sometimes it's fun to eat at Skyland on top of the mountain where you can see the all of Page County below.
Shenandoah River Outfitters:
A short drive across Luray will bring you to the river outfitters where you can rent a canoe, kayak or tube for hanging out on the Shenandoah River. A must-do activity when the weather is nice. You'll never forget the times you spend on the river. If you have your own boat, you can use a number of public boat landings.
Valley Health Fitness Center Gym-
A quick 5 min drive to East Luray Shopping Center, the gym is a great place for a workout. $5 for a day pass will allow you to work out on all the machines, treadmills and use free and fixed weights. We love it there!
Small Town USA
Luray is a quintessential small American town with a number of restaurants from fancy dining to burger joints. There's also a coffee shop w/ wifi and a local bakery making fresh goods.
Several pizza places deliver to the farmhouse. For quick needs, there's a small deli just five minutes from the farmhouse that has sandwiches, beer, snacks, and homemade donuts (only on Saturdays, they are amazing).
Treasure hunt at the antique stores, or grab outdoor gear at the outfitters. The 6-screen movie theater, a true local treasure, is open for matinee and evening screenings. Uncle Bucks is the sports bar where locals enjoy the game (stays open till 1am every night). Several groceries stores and Walmart will provide you with everything you need. There's also the Wisteria winery that's open most days to enjoy a local wine tasting. The Luray Zoo is on the edge of town and famous for rescuing exotic animals. Perfect for kids who want to safely get close to animals.
A new hospital w/ a 24-hour emergency room is just 10 minutes away.
