4 bedrooms on the Shenandoah River nestled between the mountains
About Barbara Shuler
Through the years of our own family vacations, we realized a need for a place like Rapid Retreat. Vacations are so much fun when you can share them with your favorite family members and friends, so we created the perfect spot for big get togethers. We've had our own families here and tested the waters to see what was needed most to make this one of the best places to stay. We truly do supply everything that anyone would ever need for a perfect stay!
Barbara Shuler purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Barbara Shuler chose Shenandoah
Who wouldn't want to own 4 acres on the Shenandoah River with a 3,100 square foot home? It's the kind of place you want to share with others as the Shenandoah Valley is a truly beautiful place to see.

Relaxing get away!
Thank you Barbara for providing a relaxing get away vacation for our family! The cabin was clean and comfortable and conveniently located to Shenandoah National Park, Luray Caverns and Massanutten Resort. Shenandoah National Park is beautiful - don't miss it! As other reviews mentioned you only need to bring your clothes and food. So nice to have a stocked kitchen and sheets and towels provided. Made packing a little easier! Barbara even left a snack tray and bottle of wine to welcome us. We especially enjoyed the game room - many family pool tournament memories were created. Highly recommend this cabin and hope to return again!
Great quiet getaway
We loved our stay here. Lots of toys and games for the kids. The hot tub was great along with the view. The house is clean and the beds are comfortable
Perfect in every way!
Owners really though of everything! The house was well stocked with the essentials. We did a lot of cooking so having full propane, spices, and ample utensils was great. Location was perfect too. Walkable to the river, nice and secluded but an easy drive to town. Would definitely recommend staying here.
JMU Family Weekend
Wow! This was a great house for our stay for JMU Family Weekend! The house is a bit further from JMU than I expected. It takes about 45 minutes to get to campus but it is a nice drive and was fine for us. The house is as CLEAN as can be and we enjoyed the fire pit and the hot tub and the river and the game room and just plain everything!
Everything was right and Barba made an extra effort to acomódate our large family.
The only negative thing is; that if the house accommodates 9 people the set price online should be for 9 people, and NOT to charge extra money for every person after the 4th guess.
Thank you for your review. The heading that it sleeps 15 was done by Homeaway & VRBO but I've changed that. I aplologize for the way it was advertised. It only sleeps 11. We feel that if only 4 or 6 people want to rent it they should not pay as much as 11 but I've changed the nightly rent to cover 11 people so there are no questions about the rate.
We went to celebrate a child's 40th birthday. We all had a great time floating the river. We especially enjoyed the fishing. It was a little difficult for our 3 & 4 year old to enjoy the area below the cabin; however, there was a little public boat landing the offered the opportunity for them to play in the river without having to worry about the rocks. Overall, everyone had a great time.
Surrounded by the mountains and the Shenandoah River and so convenient to nearby golf courses, ski resorts, quaint downtown shops in Luray with the famous Luray Caverns & Luray Reptile Zoo, within a half hour drive to Shenandoah National Park
ADDRESS IS 400 NORTH FORK RIVER ROAD, SHENANDOAH, VA.
