FAQ / Cabin Rules:

-Check-in 3:00 PM Check-out 11:00 AM

-Pet fee $50/ max 1 dog under 50 lbs. - No Cats

-Please note that due to the water in the area, there may be a slight sulfur smell when the water is first turned on. There is a water filter at the cabin, but there is still sometimes a little bit of an odor to the water- it is perfectly safe to drink and will dissipate very quickly, but it's something for guests to be aware of!

There is no trash service in the area, so we ask you to please take your trash with you. There are instructions in the cabin telling you where to go to take it so you don't have to take it all the way home! Alternatively, the house manager can take them for a tip of $5 per bag.

Property policy: the primary guest must be at least 21 years old

"We spent a long weekend at Barney's Retreat. The host was super responsive with all of our questions before and during our stay. We definitely wanted more time to relax and soak up all the great amenities available to us, a couple of days was not long enough. The hot tub was a pleasant addition (even in the summer). The house was just what we needed as far as space and comfort. Our little dog was right at home too. We will 100 percent rent this space again in the future."

"Our stay at Barney's Retreat was nothing short of a PERFECT getaway. The owners have thought of everything their guests would need, including the "big bobber" cooler which got a bunch of use - LOL! We had such a peaceful and relaxing stay. This stretch of the river is perfect for wading in the water while fishing. We hope to return many more times."

"We booked last minute before our trip, looking for a quiet place to get away and relax for our anniversary. Barney’s didn’t disappoint. We booked an additional night! The river was right out our back door and the cabin had everything we needed. We stayed for 5 days and never turned the tv on with so much to do outdoors. We definitely plan on returning."

"My family had an absolute blast during our visit, making treasured memories in the embrace of nature. The ambiance was serene and is ideal for unwinding. We love the river, cooking s'mores at the fire pit, & playing at the yard. Everything is provided at Barney's retreat. All you need to bring is food. The not-so-favorite of ours is the hot tub because it appears not so clean and the water is a bit cloudy. Overall, Barney's Retreat is a perfect retreat for rejuvinating the mind and soul."

"I scheduled this trip for a short getaway with my spouse and parents. I sought out a property with a hot tub, that was along the Shenandoah River close enough to the Shenandoah NP, and was dog-friendly. The property was kind enough to allow us to have a second dog for an additional fee above their advertised 1 dog limit. Comms were smooth. The property was not super clean but manageable. I'll add, that I communicated with the property management team and they were attentive to addressing the concerns though were dismissive of the issues. The ceiling has dust and spiderwebs hanging throughout; overhead lights included. There was a wolf spider nest that spanned a couple of feet in the bathroom above the door. There was cookware and dishware that needed to be washed before use, the blender had a black grime on its button panel. The house water filter was in obvious need of replacement (My father and I are plumbers). I needed to clean the toilet when I arrived. The bathroom walls need cleaning as well. Our chief issue was the state of the hot tub. The water was cloudy to the point that you could not see the bottom of it and the interior of the cover had a green/brown algae/mold film on it. The property managers were amicable to our request for a refund of the cleaning fee and hot tub charge. Beyond the tub, spiders, and cleaning need, the property was fine and the location is great. I'd recommend the property and would stay again if the issues fielded were handled."

"We loved it… until we checked out the hot tub! It was unusable. Needed complete cleaning with a water change. I sent an email with pics to the property mgr and they offered to send someone over but we declined knowing the time needed to resolve the issue. We enjoyed the indoor fireplace as well as the fire pit outside. We’d like to go back in nicer weather and clean hot tub!"

"Do not let the small square footage scare you away! If you enjoy the outdoors then this place is perfect and was way more than we expected! We spent almost the entire trip on the river, back porch, by the fire pit, or hanging out in the yard playing games. There were way more convenient factors both inside and out than advertised which made the trip even more enjoyable. Hot tub on the porch was a huge plus too! Now for the price there must be a downside and unfortunately that was the very small shower, no washing machine / dryer, or dishwasher…but that should NOT stop you from booking this place. We will absolutely book here again!"

"We loved this charming cabin! It was clean, the beds were super comfy, youtube cable, wifi, but you won't need it bc you'll be outside taking in the gorgeous views as it's right on the river! Fire pit was on it as well, plenty of wood there, and the hammick is a nice touch! We truly enjoyed our stay that we asked if anyone was checking in on the day we were leaving, and there was not so we got to stay a few hrs longer! We will definitely be back during the summer as the shendoah outfitters, where you rent tubes, kayaks, etc was maybe 1 mile from here. (give or take). Cannot wait to come back!"

"We had a great stay at Barney’s Retreat. It was the perfect size for 2 and close to attractions. The house was clean and had everything you needed. The screened porch and fire pit were definitely a plus. It was just a little too cold for the hot tub. Overall I would definitely rent this house again and would recommend to others."

"I am so grateful for our stay at Barney's retreat. It had a legacy family feel with updated amenities right on the river! Jacuzzi on the screen porch with river and mountain views, plenty of picnic tables, fire pit, and fireplace inside. Plenty of wood to burn. The mattresses were comfy in both bedrooms. Clean. Everything you need for a relaxing time. Two minor issues to mention, when we arrived in the dark, the sign/house number was hard to find. Secondly, I am a very serious coffee drinker and it took me a few times to get the hang of how the pod coffeemaker worked. Rest assured, we will be back! Highly recommend!"

"The pictures online don't represent Barney's retreat accurately. The river is literally 2 feet from the firepit. There is a nice small fishing pier on the property that easily fits 2 lawn chairs. 2 huge picnic tables in the yard and one on the screen porch. The jacuzzi is also on the screen porch. 2 bedrooms. The mattresses were great in both. The only minor complaints were that we arrived in the dark and it took a few passes to find it because the sign was not lit and the house number was not seen by the street like the other properties. Secondly, I am a serious coffee drinker and the pod coffee maker took a few times to get the hang of. Other than that, it was exactly as advertised and we really enjoyed it !"

"My family and I absolutely loved this cabin and the peaceful retreat it provided. The kids loved fishing off the riverbank while we made a fire for smores. The hammock was a nice touch and so was the hot tub. The cabin itself was so cozy. My favorite part was sitting on the screened in porch drinking coffee and listening to the river and birds singing. I've never felt more relaxed than at Barney's Retreat. 100% recommend. Also it is only 20 minutes from town and some lovely hiking trails. Super convenient."

"If you want seclusion this is the right house to rent. Beautiful views. I enjoyed relaxing by the fire in front of the river. Very quiet. The house could have been a little cleaner. There was dust webs on the ceiling. We encountered quite a few spiders. We had to kill 3 or 4 upon arriving and there wasn’t any bug spray. This would not prevent me from staying again as I’m aware this comes with being in the woods."

"Barney's retreat was a beautiful place to stay, the riverside house had all the necessary things to make our stay an amazing time. The proximity to the river was unbeatable and the closed in porch to have all our meals was amazing. The only thing that i was not a fan of was the smell of sulfur in the shower when the hot water was turned on. Other than that it was a great place to be and my family and I had a great time, we would definitely go back!"
