What Guests Are Saying

  • Massanutten Gem We hate to rate The Nut House so highly, because now, everyone will know the "secret" and it will become more difficult to rent. The house is lovely, spotlessly clean, and oh boy, the master bed is comfortable! The kitchen was terrific. You don't need to pack up your coffee filters, your sugar, your salt and pepper....it's there! You feel at home-right away. Massanutten is a terrific spot for a long weekend or week. This house is so close to everything. We went to two great vineyards, visited JMU (wow, has our old school grown), drove in the country, and took many many photographs in the beautiful Virginia mountains. Rent this house! (But not when we want to!)

  • Great house and amenities The Nut House was a great find. With two small kids, there were lots of kid friendly games and all of the resort amenities are close by. The space is finely appointed, clean and welcoming.

  • Great house, great to do deal Jo! As a fellow VRBO owner, I try to have clear and constant communication with our guests and provide a spotless place for them when they arrive. Jo and her team did exactly that for our group that stayed at the Nut House. Would recommend the house, location, amenities, and everything the area had to offer.

  • Austin Powers would take one look at the interior to The Nut House and say, 'Yeah, baby!' The owners have a great eye for early 60's decor, from the furniture to various objects d'art, including a Lava Lamp that fascinated my young children for hours. The combination of the 60's decor and the wall-to-ceiling windows in the living room give the interior a wide-open, airy feeling, the forest just beyond the glass. Though located in a wooded, residential area, the house feels secluded, with no neighbors in sight. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, efficient and helpful. They obviously take great pride in The Nut House, and that pride is well deserved.

  • Wonderful House We loved our visit to the Nut House. It was a beautiful place that was clean and well maintained. Especially loved the furniture. While we were there we enjoyed playing family games and hot tubbing. It was close to all the resort activities. It was so nice that we didn't have to pack all the extra items for our stay. It made vacationing so much easier. Jo was great to work with. Loved the packet with all the helpful tips of the area. We had a wonderful mini vacation and hope to return some day soon.

  • Family Nut house stay The nut house and Massanutten were a good find for our family (just 2 hours away from DC). We found a great house, located in a beautiful natural setting, with more amenities than we had time to use in a week. Also, our 5 year old daughter had fun at the water park, exploring nature, riding poneys, etc. and declared that this was a great week of her vacation. Thank you Jo for your hospitality!!!!

  • The Nut House Great home-due to the rainy weather, my family and I stayed inside more than usual, so we were really able to actually enjoy the home more than on previous trips we've taken. The Nut House was very clean and has a comfortable layout with numerous windows. Great for watching the deer roaming around outside. The owner was great to work with and provided a wealth of information from first entry into resort area to restaurant recommendations.

  • Get Away with Ease We arrived late at night, and everything was all set for us. We got in with ease. Beds were made. Towels were hung. The hot tub was even warm. Everything was at our fingertips. The kitchen is fully equipped, and even labeled so that you can easily return everything to its place. The house is designed with modern chic and intention. Even the colors match the natural beauty of the area. We could all, there were 6 of us- 3 couples, sit together in the living room, or divide amongst ourselves on the porch, the hot tub, by the tv, in our bedrooms.. The furniture is comfy for lounging and there are tons of games to entertain you late into the night. When we woke up the first morning, the beauty of our surroundings came to life. The huge windows make it feel like you are outside, amongst the trees. The nearby mountains are gorgeous, too. I definitely recommend taking a hike!

  • Beautiful home We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. It is comfortable, beautiful, and unique. Impeccably maintained, and very guest-friendly, from the high-end linens to the well-stocked kitchen, clear wifi instructions, and binder full of information. We would stay in this home again--or in any other property owned by this family in a heartbeat!

  • Wonderful week at The Treehouse We had a fantastic week staying at the Tree House!!! The house was very comfortable for a house full of adults and so very well stocked. Jo was fantastic to work with and we had the best time hanging out with family and enjoying things on the Massanutten property. The owners make it very easy to go on vacation by providing so many of the things that take up so much room - paper towels, linens, toilet paper, etc. The round table was a hit for playing games. We had fun grass tubing, golfing, and tubing down the Shenandoah River!! Hope we get to enjoy the Tree House again!!!

  • This is a great home to rent! We had such a great time and the home is amazing! We kept saying how we wished we could have made a longer vacation out of it, but the weekend we had was the best! We loved the design, the decorating, the views... everything! The kitchen is so well stocked with plates and cups and cooking items. We made two great dinners and the thing I really loved is the round dining table. We were all seated comfortably and were all able to see one another and talk. It is a very comfortable, welcoming home! You will definitely enjoy your time if you stay in the Tree House! :)

  • Wonderful house for group of 10 We had a blast at this house. We spent 5 days there(over New Years) with 5 couples and we all had a blast. The house is very spacious, the dinner table is perfect for 10. Hot-tub was great. Kitchen was well stocked. Has all the stuff you have at home(pots, pans, coffee maker, etc). BIG refrigerator. Lots to do around the area. Will be visiting there again for summer! The owner of the house responded VERY fast to any/all questions. She made sure we had everything we needed from things in the house, to things to do around the area, etc. Very friendly!

  • Great weekend getaway home Our big, military bunch of friends stayed at the house before deployments and such send us our separate ways soon. The house was spacious, clean, well furnished and had everything we needed for a group of 10. The kitchen was well stocked with the cutest dishes, cleaning supplies and the big, round family table came in handy when playing board games and eating meals together. The hot tub was great at night, even in the cold. The home was not as secluded as I thought it would be (its in a neighborhood) and had very limited views... but I don't want to take away from the house itself. Skyline Drive is about a 10 min drive and since the roads were frozen, no cars were allowed but we did walk about 4 miles of it.

  • Great house for two families We had a great time at this house. There were two families-- 4 adults and 5 children 5 and under. The house is set up so each family can have separate living quarters. It's located right inside the resort, and while there are houses next to it, there are partial nice views bc it's tucked up in a quiet cul-de-sac. Everything was very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked. Lots to do in the area, we'd definitely recommend this house to our friends and family. The owner was very responsive and accommodating.

  • Great House for Large Party Took a group of friends and their kids (7 adults 2 children) to enjoy the last vestiges of winter on the slopes. The house was amazing. Clean, great kitchen -- and the kids were most excited they got their own room. Jo made herself more than accessible during our stay via telephone. All around we had a great experience, we definitely would stay here again. Thanks for letting us get some R&R in your beautiful vacation home.

  • Fantastic house for families I used VRBO to rent houses for both vacations and professional conferences and this was by far the best stocked, most comfortable house I've ever rented. We vacationed with two other families with children aged 2-5 and there was plenty of space for us all. We loved that the bedrooms were separate from the living area so that after the kids went to bed the adults could play games and watch tv without worrying about disrupting them. The round table was fantastic for family dinners. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed the screened porch in the mornings and the kids enjoyed exploring the yard. Although the weather wasn't agreeable we enjoyed the playground just down from the house, the water park, White Oak Lavender Farm, and celebrated the 4th at Massanutten's Summer Park. Overall, an excited long weekend getaway. Don't hesitate to rent this all season vacation home.


  • Lots of fun at Massanutten! My family and another family (4 adults + 4 kids) stayed at the Tree House the week of July 4th and had a great time. There is tons to do there in the summer. We all enjoyed the house. There was plenty of room for the 8 of us. Pros: - Jo was extremely courteous and prompt in answering all of our questions - she even looked up hiking trails for me, specifically looking for ones that would be OK for kids - The summary Jo provides for the area - restaurants, activities, emergency contacts, etc. was very helpful and comprehensive - lessening the research I had to do! - The house was clean and tidy; the kitchen very well stocked - Having laundry detergent available for our use was great - With 3 full bathrooms, there was no issue getting everyone showered and out the door - the location is very convenient to everything on the mountain and close to several good restaurants Why only 4 stars and not 5?: - Not providing bath towels was a surprise and uncommon in my experience in renting a house... bringing hand towels, bath towels, and swimming towels for a family of four took up a lot of space in our car - Referring to the 2 bedrooms on the basement floor - you can hear EVERYTHING through the ceiling... so if you are trying to go to sleep while there are people still up and moving about in the kitchen and living room, it's a challenge - there's no yard for kids to run around, have a catch, etc. - while I loved having a screened in porch for reading, the furniture was out dated and not very comfortable Overall I would recommend this house - especially since Jo was so helpful and the house is very clean.

  • Great family getaway! We are a farming family, so getaways are always last minute. We were delighted to be able to scoop this house up at such a reasonable price in such a perfect location! Two families got together (kids from 3months-16) and found the house to be set up in an awesome way - everyone had their own space, yet gathered naturally in common areas. The beds and linens are extremely comfortable and having the two living areas was perfect for when the kids wanted to get away from the adults (or was it vice versa :) ). Of course, the hot tub was a perfect way to end the day. We went to the waterpark one day and did some activities on the resort another day. Wish we could have stayed longer - there seemed to be some really neat classes and activities offered by the resort that we just didn't have time to take advantage of.

  • A great getaway location We had a wonderful stay at The Treehouse for a family vacation. The house layout was great. Our adult children enjoyed the lower level rooms while the grandchildren occupied the upstairs bedrooms. The upstairs suite was perfect for us grandparents. The house was well stocked with paper products and hand soaps. It was nice not to have to travel with these items. The decor was inviting. The big dining room table was a nice gathering area. The children and the adults enjoyed the reasonably priced summer activities this mountain escape had to offer. Of course the waterpark was an added treat for all as well. The owner was very helpful and easily accessible. The house and the mountain were a beautiful and relaxing location.

  • Family Get-Together Three generations visiting for a wedding in the area .... And we picked the most awesome place to stay ... Much better than a hotel. The location was beautiful and convenient: caves, wineries, horseback riding, and just riding around to soak in the gorgeous scenery. The Ski Haus was spotless, well equipped, modern and spacious. And the owner was great to work with. The resort has great amenities also.

  • Stop looking! This is the house!! Not only is the house super cute, functional and cool, but the owners are amazing! We were amazed at the amount of consumable items that were there free of charge (endless supplies of paper towels, etc). Really cut down on packing and stress of having to shop for essentials. Overall, it was a terrific getaway made possible by some pretty awesome home owners!

  • Relaxing girlfriends weekend This house was perfect for our weekend. The house was clean, well stocked and cute. It had all the kitchen items that we needed. It also comes with paper towels, garbage bags, dish detergent, etc. which is a big help. The homeowners were very helpful and prompt to respond during the reservation process. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

  • What a Great Family Getaway! I stayed at this property Labor Day weekend with my two daughters, their husbands and my four granddaughters. Everyone had such a wonderful time! The house is so cute and charming and situated close to everything; especially the water park! The owner take so much pride in adding small touches, such as labeling where everything is; we knew our way around the kitchen in no time! It was also well-stocked with all the essentials, like tissue, paper towel, dish detergent and soap powder. I also loved the fact that the owner was very responsive with any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend this house and would stay there again!

  • Cozy and comfortable get away! We stayed at The Ski Haus with two families as a mama and girls getaway prior to school starting. Great time had by all! It was perfect to have 2 masters for the mamas and the upstairs bedrooms (which adjoin) were perfect for all the girls to sleep together in their own "space". I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the downstairs bedrooms and the interior decor is quirky but it all goes together! My only minus was the exterior needs a little bit of clean up and paintwork but still give this place a 5 star as overall it was perfect for a get away. Owner was wonderful to work with and very responsive.

  • Ski Haus was a dream house From the moment we walked into this charming A-frame we knew that we had made an excellent choice for our weekend getaway. The house was already warm and the ambience was calming. All of the bedroom areas were inviting and the King master on the first floor had a large closet to accommodate all our baggage and clothing. The furnishings were tastefully done, from the Art Deco king bed to the lovely red ceramic bread basked in the kitchen which was a favorite of mine. I had to call one time because we could not figure out how to operate the DVD player and within 20 minutes the onsite manager came by and solved the problem. The owner's description on this rental said that it was well supplied with all of those necessities that can make a place seem like home. This was an understatement when it came to this property. Everything that we could conceivably need was right at hand in well labeled locations intuitively placed. We loved this place and will not hesitate to return the next time our plans take us to Masanutten.

  • The Ski Haus - Great stay! Our large family of seven (7) had a blast in this beautiful and nicely kept home. The home was clean, inviting, and felt like home. My husband and I enjoyed all the little amenities the homeowners provided which made packing much easier. The level lot was nice for the kids to play outside and we even discovered a gravel walking trail connecting the side street to the playground located near the entrance to Massanutten. I enjoyed having the laundry room on the main level....the accessibility was a plus with as much laundry as we do. The homeowners were very responsive and friendly to any questions we had. If you are looking to stay in a well kept, clean, spacious and fun house, I would definitely recommend it!

  • Great Getaway An excellent place for friends and family to meet and hangout, and enjoy the outdoors. The owner was very responsive, organized and helpful in planning the trip. Look forward to going back!

  • Looking Forward to Another Visit Our family had a great retreat and enjoyed many things to do in the area. The accommodations were very comfortable and allowed all of us to be together. House was well equipped and allowed ages 2 to 70 to enjoy themselves. Water park was great and we went hiking in the neighborhood. We found the house to be very comfortable for seven adults and two little children. Would come back! Thanks!
