The Riverhouse sits on the edge of the Shenandoah River. With deck and screened porch overlooking the river, the water is 27 (stairway) steps away. The cabin is located on three acres, down a quiet, private road. Ideal tranquil setting for family gatherings. Toys abound -- for adults (tubes, kayaks, etc.) and kids (dollhouse, books, etc.). It has three bedrooms, 1-1/2 baths, full kitchen, and very large living/family room, comfortably accommodating 4-8 people.
The Riverhouse offers a tranquil setting to relax and to enjoy both the water and the sounds of the Shenandoah River. Whether for tubing, boating, or fishing, there are only 27 (stairway) steps between you and the river (tubes and kayaks are available for your use).
And you don't have to be an ornithological expert to love the sound of birds chirping as you sit on the screened porch enjoying your morning coffee/tea. You may well even see the great blue heron who frequently perches on the lowest step off the deck.
With three bedrooms, 1-1/2 baths, full kitchen, and large living indoor area, the Riverhouse offers plenty of indoor living space. However, you will likely want to spend your time enjoying the property's many outdoor spaces:
* screened porch overlooking the river,
* the deck with the stairs leading to the river,
* the shaded front porch,
* the huge open yard,
* the firepit, and
oh yes, the river itself!

Altre cose da evidenziare
No pets: This is not a restriction we enjoy having to impose, as we are pet lovers. But it is a restriction borne from experience, and out of necessity for our neighbors and our future guests. So, with apologies to our guests' beloved four-legged family members, there can be no exceptions to this policy. Hopefully, we will never have to, but we will seek full reimbursement for costs related to guests' pets being on the property.
Wifi/cable: The Riverhouse has no wifi or cable television. (The house sits too far off main road for cable installation and the reception of available satellite providers is too weak to provide reliable service.) There is a television, DVD player, and collection of DVDs available for guest use.
Laundry: There is no washer/dryer at the property. There is a public laundromat in the Town of Shenandoah.
Cell reception: Sprint is the one cell provider of which you can be assured very good reception at the Riverhouse. Other cell provider reception is oddly random (e.g., two recent guests had Verizon reception (on the same plan), their iPhone had terrible reception, their android had flawless reception). Most guests report at least some reception at the house, and all can get a good signal if they are at the top of our road (about 1/3 mi)
Water: The house has well water. The entire filtration system was replaced recently, so the water is quite fine to drink. We love the taste. But it is well water, and some folks prefer to get bottled water rather than drink well water, so just want to provide that heads up.
Also, in re: water. When the water runs a long time (e.g., a number of showers in a row), sometimes there is a sulfur smell. This is because the filtration system can't keep up with the large quantity of water flowing through the hot water heater. The sulfur smell is not dangerous in any way, just noticeable for little while. It dissipates quickly. And, depending upon the number of people in your group and/or the time and length of showers, you may not even notice this at all.
Exterior safety cameras: We have cameras installed in several spots on the exterior of the property. There were some property thefts in the neighborhood this summer, and given that the Riverhouse has a number of guest amenities which could be appealing to a thief (kayaks, tubes, etc.), we and our neighbors are working together to monitor each other's property with both cameras and human vigilance. On that note, we encourage guests to report any suspicious activity in the neighborhood.
- Please treat the Riverhouse as you would want someone to treat your home.
