I booked this cabin as a surprise for my boyfriend and my 5th anniversary. As we pulled up we were both impressed with how nice it was. Very cozy and well stocked with everything you would need. We used the gas fireplace every chance we could as well as the jetted soaker tub. It was very cold and windy both nights so we didn’t use the hot tub or fire pit. Plenty of wood, chairs, and marshmallow skewers were available though. There is a grill too which would be great to use in the summer. The cabin was close to Shenandoah National park as well as downtown Luray so it wasn’t too hard to go explore. It was also dog friendly and our toy poodle had a blast running around and exploring.
Only things I wish were different was the shower for the master bedroom. Since it’s a corner shower, it’s a little difficult to move around in and I’m pretty tiny. Also, the couch in the living room was a little uncomfortable since it’s a pull out couch. We had to put blankets and pillows down to lay across so you didn’t feel the bars. Maybe an update to some of the living room furniture may be helpful.
Either way, we had a great trip and will probably be back again! We ended up meeting the owner and her little boy when we were heading out. Very sweet lady and very understanding even with us being 10mins past the 11am checkout time (whoops).
TIPS: The road leading up to cabin is a little rough, even in our truck, so make sure you bring a 4 wheel drive car.
If you are hiking in Shenandoah, take the Rose River Trail near big meadows. It goes along the water by multiple waterfalls which makes the hike very enjoyable. It is rocky so make sure you wear good footwear. And it’s dog friendly (just makes sure your pup can handle it)
Moonshadows was a great fancy restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Great food and atmosphere!
The caverns are dog friendly! Small dogs can be held and taken on the tour.
The lodge was a great getaway and a wonderful place to celebrate our 25th anniversary! Luray is beautiful and despite the rain, we had a wonderful time!
Thank you, Lynette and the Lazy Bear Lodge!
Very nice cabin, lay out is perfect. The peace and quiet is wonderful. The jacuzzi is wonderful to come back to after hiking the multitude of nearby trails that are within 10-20 minutes away depending on what kind of hike you are looking for, or simply relaxing by the fire place, or fire pit. There are both gas and charcoal grills available and everything in and around The Lazy Bear Lodge are clean and functional and very well taken care of. There is Wi-Fi available if you must connect to the world (poor you!!) or you can stay disconnected and just relax..... There are also TV's in each bedroom and living room.
This was our second stay here and we look forward to visiting again!!
Beautiful log cabin! Clean and spacious. Perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. Highly recommend. Already planning on going back. Loved everything about it
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely home.
We had everything we needed.
We enjoyed the location. Close to wisteria winery and willow grove market. I didn't know I liked Virginia wines until we checked out wisteria.
