About this space
Riverfront NEW build - Summer 2021
Misty Run is 2.4 acres of nature with 400 feet of private river access. It offers a 2-story vaulted ceiling living/dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, 2nd floor loft, ping-pong table, spacious deck, and access to kayaks and a canoe -- all overlooking the beautiful Shenandoah River.
Nearby attractions include Shenandoah Natl Park, GW Natl Forest, Luray Caverns, skiing, hiking, wineries, & a nearby boat ramp for tubing back to Misty Run.
Situated in a cozy bend on the south fork of the Shenandoah River, 2 hours from Washington, DC and Richmond and 40 mins from Harrisonburg, this gorgeous and comfortable chalet-style house is surrounded by woods with 400 feet of private riverfront. Outdoors, you can enjoy the spacious wraparound deck with dining table and plenty of seating or swing in the hammocks. Bring charcoal for the grill or settle around the firepit and take in the fresh air, all overlooking the river and trees. Cast your fishing line for smallmouth bass, carp, catfish, or sunfish. Wade, swim, float, tube, kayak, or canoe to enjoy the river. There’s plenty of space to spread out and enjoy all that nature has to offer.
There are 2 primary bedrooms featuring king beds with attached private ensuite bathrooms with overhead heaters and walk-in showers. There are also 2 secondary bedrooms -- one with bunk beds and an additional twin bed, the other with two twin beds -- that share a nearby hall bathroom. The oversized dining room table was locally handcrafted using walnut salvaged from the property and is large enough to fit your whole group! The well-equipped, open kitchen features rustic wood cabinets, quartz countertops, full-size appliances, and an extra large sink. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you’ll need for your visit. Brand-new kitchen gadgets include a large and tiny crock-pot, 2 griddles, 2 waffle makers, coffee maker, 2 muffin trays, cutting boards, pots, pans, knives, outdoor plastic cups/plates and bowls, kid-friendly cups/plates/bowls and utensils, wine and beer glasses, and so much more. The washer and dryer are conveniently located on the main floor.
An easy-to-use fireplace in the living room provides ambience and warmth in the winter months. Play a game of ping-pong or relax in the two-story spacious living/dining room, which has a comfy, oversized “deep-sitting” couch and massive windows that let in lots of natural light and provide a gorgeous view of the river.
If you're looking for a little more space to spread out, there is a loft with toys, puzzles, a second TV (great for kids’ playtime!) and a view overlooking the living/dining room and the river. Don't worry about the summer heat as the upstairs has its own personal A/C (and heating) system.
River access is just out front. There’s a slight slope on the left side of the yard for easy walking access to the riverbank. From the riverbank there are a few rock steps to ease yourself into the water.
Note: the walkout basement contains the ping-pong table for guest use. The rear of the basement has the water filters, furnace, etc. and is off-limits to guests.
