Heaven in the Hollow
Wow, the cottage was perfect, cozy and comfortable. It had everything we needed plus some great bonuses. The kitchen was large enough with seating to accommodate us and 3 friends for a big "country" breakfast. Additionaly, we had family and friends join us one day.... we played corn hole with the boards we noticed upon arrival, cooked out on the grill provided, lit a fire in the fire pit and made s'mores. We even had a movie night and binged watch some of our favorite shows on Netflix. It was fabulous. The scenery is breathtaking. You can hear the water from the waterfalls running constantly. There is a great country store just minutes away for anything you might forget. The owner was kind and quick to respond to any correspondence. The young lady, Madie who lives nearby was able to answer any questions, provide anything we needed and was happy to give us ideas and things to do. We have already booked our return trip!!! It was so nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We had never stayed in the "holla" but are so glad we chose White Oak Cottage for our first experience!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Location
Great location near the entrance to Shenandoah National Park. Excellent hiking and fishing nearby make this an ideal location for a vacation. Cabin is small but well kept. the front porch smells of mildew but the interior was clean and comfortable. Don't plan on staying inside long there are just too many natural wonders to explore nearby. If you can't find enough to do, Graves mountain is at the end of the road where you can go horseback riding, get supplies, fish for trout, or eat dinner. Will keep this place on my short list for another vacation.

4/5 Good

A Perfect Hiking Cabin
This was the perfect place to stay for our hiking trip in Shenandoah. Just a 3 minute walk from White Oak Canyon trailhead and a 3 minute drive to an old rag access point, this property is ideally located for any time of year.

5/5 Excellent

Can't beat the location
We loved being a minute's walk from the Whiteoak Falls boundary parking area and trailheads. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We really appreciated the super heating system which, while pretty loud, warmed the place up in no time. The owners were wonderful at communicating and there were lots of small details that they provided that made things easier and more pleasant: salt and pepper shakers, dish detergent, soft towels, a few good reading books, a nice new TV, very workable Wifi, etc.
