Great Place for a Retreat?

Bear Lodge Cabin is a great place to simply get away. The view is magnificent, the cabin is rustic but cozy and has everything you need. We rented it for two months and were very comfortable and felt at home from the time we walked in the door. The location offers something for everyone, and within minutes you can get to the town of Front Royal for shopping, and restaurants. The owners of Bear Lodge Cabin did everything possible to make sure we had an enjoyable vacation. We would definitely rent this place again!

Our first weekend at Bear Lodge....Wonderful!

Any experienced traveler will contest that no place is perfect, but Bear Lodge is pretty damn close! Here is our weekend in a nutshell: The drive into Front Royal was scenic, and immediately began setting the "mountain getaway" mood. Front Royal is cozy, clean and the people are friendly. Whether its meaty buffalo wings(Soul Mountain Restaurant), a juicy steak(Joes Steakhouse) or delicious sushi(Yamafuji), you'll find it just around the corner. The drive up the mountain was gorgeous. Every twist and turn as we climbed higher up the mountain only added to the anticipation. The moment finally arrived that we pulled into Bear Lodge and although I cant confirm, I might have heard Marvin Gay amongst the tranquility. The cabin is beautiful both inside and out. Every inch was taken into consideration when it came to decorating. We especially loved the custom pool table. When you are standing next to the pool table, the view of the mountains are breathtaking. For those very special moments alone, we shall return. The hot tub is easy to operate and was one of the many highlights. Our favorite activity was sitting outside on the huge deck and enjoying an ice cold beer as the sun set over the Shenandoah Mountains. When my wife and I first booked the cabin I was a bit apprehensive because I had never rented. I received a phone call from the owners the following day in response to an inquiry I had sent and they were such pleasant and knowledgeable people. I liked how professional they were and those qualities put my worries to rest. Overall, it was a wonderful weekend.

Amazing Stay

My husband and I recently enjoyed a 2 night stay at the cabin. It was serene with beautiful views. The Jacuzzi was perfect. We enjoyed dinner in several fabulous local restaurants, to include Osteria and Jalisco. We also stopped by the antique shop, used book store, Better Thymes Natural Food Store. and Front Royal Canoeing. We intend on coming back.
