Rainbow View Cabin

*** Rainbow View Cabin has been sold ***
and is no longer available for rent.

We thank all our previous guests over the past 7 1/2 years. We hope you enjoyed your stays here. We enjoyed hosting you (all 792 groups of you!). We appreciated all your glowing reviews – they’re what kept us going as long as we did. We wish you luck in your search for your next getaway.

We started the business as a spare time retirement project. We put our hearts and souls into it – and found it to be much more work than a full time job – and we’re now simply exhausted. We could have contracted with a management firm to continue to operate the business, but they wouldn’t have been able to meet our standards, so we just didn’t want to do that. We’re retiring for real now.

Thanks much
Chris & Steve

(If you’d care to leave any comments below, we will certainly enjoy the reminiscing, but we probably will not respond.)

Sleeps 4

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.
(And at 1,738 feet in elevation it’s always 10-15 degrees cooler than the city!)

Above the little village of Linden, just 5 miles east of Front Royal, the northern gateway to Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park.
In the rural Mountain View Section of Shenandoah Farms subdivision, which was planned back in the ’70’s as a vacation community, on a secluded arm of Blue Mountain, now surrounded on three sides by the 1200 acre Blue Ridge Reserve conservation wilderness. And the eastern slope of Blue Mountain is the 4,000 acre G Richard Thompson Wildlife Management Area.
One of the best views on aptly named High Top Rd!


WINTER ADVISORY:   Access in winter may require a 4WD vehicle.  The last mile of road to the cabin is gravel.  It is plowed by the County, but even long after a storm can still be very slick.  We cannot be responsible for the whims of Nature.  If you choose to come with a 2WD vehicle, you do so at your own risk and with acceptance of the eventuality that you may need to call a tow truck.


Check Availability on our VRBO/HomeAway Calendar


We are a hands-on operation, living only 1/4 mile away, so your experience here will feel a bit more personal than at a typical vacation rental.

We welcome well behaved dogs.
You should note however that there is a county-wide leash law.

We welcome well behaved children.
You should note however that the environment is not particularly conducive to small children’s enjoyment. There’s no lawned yard to play in, the terrain is very steep and rocky, and the woods has poison ivy and snakes. Inside and on the deck we have not addressed any child safety issues as we have no experience in that regard and it’s not been our focus clientele. There is no community playground, and the youngest kids in the neighborhood are of junior high age. The community lakes have no beaches, lifeguards, or restrooms. The closest playground is in Front Royal about 12 miles from the cabin.

Motorcycles are welcome, but even though neighbors on the road have them, every guest who has brought one has complained about the road, so just be advised.

ATVs, discharging firearms, outdoor fires before 4 PM, and disturbing noise after 10 PM are prohibited by various ordinances and covenants.

We enjoy providing our guests with a special experience and hope that you’ll appreciate the idyllic setting and all the little extras offered.
