Great stay!
We vacationed at Grand Pine Lodge in August, and had a wonderful stay. Massanutten was a nice meeting spot for our group who traveled from NJ, NC, SC, GA and FL to be together. There were 12 of us ranging from 13 to 83, and there was plenty of room to spread out. We especially loved the big dining table that we could all fit comfortably at for meals. The pool table and the hot tub were big hits... both got use each day of our stay. The home was reasonably clean upon our arrival, the beds were mostly comfortable, the linens were fine, and the kitchen was pretty well stocked. The property managers were extremely responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and our stay. There were a few things that could use some attention, hence the 4 star rating... the property overall is a little bit tired... understandable given its age and use as a vacation rental, but some general, routine maintenance could go a long way. the property surrounding the home could use a clean up - even though the lot is wooded, the landscaping seems neglected. the deck is in need of repair. the windows and screens throughout the home were very dirty. Some of the furniture felt a bit old and worn, but in general was comfortable. none of these things negatively impacted our stay, but just things we noticed that could be addressed. Overall, we were very happy with our stay!

July stay at Grand Log Home
The space and sleeping accommodations were fine for our family of mostly adults (youngest grandson 19). There are a few quirks, like master bedroom with only access to an adjoining bedroom, offering not much privacy. Large well-equipped kitchen was nice for us, too. Very clean and inside mostly well-maintained. The deck needs refinishing. Getting splintery in places. Nonetheless, it is large with plenty of seating and a nice gas grill . We very much enjoyed that. Yard is pretty much a mess of weeds and so overgrown that I didn't realize there were chairs and a hammock in the front until I had been there for 3 days. Problems working with the TVs, even though we had at least 3 tech savvy people in the group. Everything apparently has to be accessed through Roku and it took a while to figure out. If you have a cable account, like with Fios or Cox, you may be able to sign in and have your usual programming. All-in-all we really enjoyed ourselves and I know my family would go back again.
