Nice home, but could have been better
What was good All the appliances worked, power was on, and no bed bugs. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, utensils, small appliances, etc. The home is decorated well and you can tell they invested in their bathrooms. The fireplace for smore's in the yard was nice and the grass was low so we were able to play in the yard. No mosquitos outside, which was a surprise. There are tons of light switches everywhere, you can spend lots of time trying to find the one you need! There was complimentary tea, but the good flavors were all gone. I left an item and Sara was nice enough to mail it back to me at no extra charge, which was beyond kind. What was okay The house is dark at night if you turn all the lights off. We brought extra night lights and left a couple on in case we needed to go downstairs. The hot water worked fine, but wreaked of Sulphur and was cloudy. There were not many games at all. Pictionary was warped probably from getting wet. There were cards, and Uno, but not much else to do. There is a closet of baby toys, but nothing for older kids, so come prepared. As my husband put it, "If your entertainment system requires 8 pages of laminated instructions, it's the wrong one!" We got it working, but the wi-fi was spotty. There was almost no view of the river as the brush has been allowed to grow up, so there was only one spot in the whole house that had any view, which was disappointing. There are a lot of antique chairs in the home. Some are rickety, but they do hold you. The ceilings upstairs have low door entry's and low beams. My husband is 6' 5" and hit his head on the rafters several times. We finally just decided to stay out of some of the rooms. There are also raised boards at the entry to rooms, making it easy to trip. So watch your head and your step. What was bad BUGS. Indoors, spiders under chairs (with spider eggs as a bonus), ants, and one's you will have to google to figure out. There are not just flying bugs from leaving a door open. The bathroom in the "kids room" is scary. The door locks from the outside and the window is broken, so if your little one pushes it up it will slam back down almost instantly. Really dangerous for little fingers. Also there is no hand shower and the tub is a soaking tub. You'll need to bring a hand held shower attachment or bring a glass up from downstairs if you want to wash your child's hair. The other tub across the hall does not have a hand shower either. DIRTY. There were three hairs on one of the pillow cases when we arrived. The kitchen tablecloth was also covered in crumbs. We shook the stuff out rather than calling and waiting for the grounds keeper. I had to wipe the kitchen cabinet fronts off with clorox wipes before I could cook because they had grease and stains all over them. Gross. Some of the pots/pans had also been put away dirty so I had to wash each one before using. We spilled water on the kitchen tile and grabbed a white towel to wipe it up. The towel came off the floor brown and gray. Clearly the place needs a good scrubbing. POISON OAK growing along side the house. Yeah! The pathway to the river is a death trap. It's steep and drops you on cinderblocks and rocks. Not cinderblock steps mind you, just randomly thrown blocks. Thankfully, there was a small tree to the left we were able to use as a handle to get down. However, neither me nor my children could get out once we got down there. If your short, you'll need a boost or you will have to crawl out. My son fell on the rocks by the river as well. They were not wet, just poorly laid out. THe staircase from the road to the grass could use some TLC as well. It SMELLED on arrival. The air is turned off when it is vacant. We had to contact the owner to get it on. There was an odd smell in the kitchen on arrival and my husband's asthma activated. We walked around and checked out the house. Upon opening the basement door we were almost knocked over by a smell. He went down to look, but turned right around and told us all not to go down there. We then vacated the house for about two hours and let the air run. When we got back it was much better. Overall, this is a nice old property. It is fine for a family trip, but a little pricey for the condition of what you are getting. I expected it to be cleaner and the grounds to be better kept. We ended up leaving a day early. Not really worth the money.

Family Farmhouse on the River
We had a wonderful stay in this historical farmhouse. The house is impeccable and offers such a warm and comfortable feeling. Plenty of space for all to spread out. We loved the movie room and the outdoor areas. One thing to note is that one of the king suites and laundry is separate from the other bedrooms. It was nice being close to everything but so peaceful and quiet here. Thank you, Sara. We hope to return.

Relaxing and comfortable setting.
The house is beautiful and so is the property! The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s a great spot to relax and decompress. Plus, it’s an easy drive from the DC area making it that much better.

Wonderful Country Home
We stayed here with a group of friends for a weekend to go tubing along the Shenandoah River. The house is beautiful with old rustic charm and modern updates. It was more than enough house for all 8 adults. We enjoyed the outside chimney the most and made many many s’mores!

Wonderful 70th Birthday Weekend!
We had a beautiful weekend at Stonewall Crossing! It was a perfect place to celebrate my 70th birthday. We especially loved the number of bathrooms in the home. The home was beautifully restored, and the historical information was interesting to read. It was a cozy place, and the beds were very comfortable. It was so hot outside that we didn't get to enjoy the grounds as much as we wanted. Everyone did have a chance to use the kayaks and get in the river, which was delightful. We did think the path that led from the lawn to the river was a little difficult to navigate. Maybe that area could be cut back and leveled a bit. We all loved the home theater! We were so comfortable on the leather couches, and we felt like we were at the movies! The only other concern was that the water smelled like rotten eggs. Maybe a well treatment would help that. Otherwise, the kitchen was fully stocked and comfortable to work in. Again, we all had a wonderful weekend at Stonewall Crossing. I truly enjoyed my special birthday weekend with my family at this beautiful home.

Something for Everyone!
We had an absolutely wonderful time staying at this lovely home in the valley. The views were stunning and you can see the river from almost every room in the house. The kids loved exploring the yard and playing games and we had a fire in the outdoor fireplace every night. The inside was very cozy with everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the theater room and the gas fireplaces. This is a rental that has something to offer in every season and we look forward to coming back again!

Family Christmas get away
We very much enjoyed our stay at Stonewall Crossing. My family including my 16 month old granddaughter were all there. We found the home to be comfortable enough but were very disappointed in the amount of bugs there were. I mean every where! THey really need to get a terminater out there to get ride of this bug problem. I can't even imagine what it would be like in the summer.

Perfect Bridal Party Cabin
We loved this cabin! We choose this cabin as a place for my bridal party to stay at for my wedding. The rooms were very spacious, the house was clean, and the owner was very nice and helpful with any questions we had. Thank you so much for a fantastic experience!
