When researching where to stay near Shenandoah National Park, we knew we wanted to stay somewhere tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the National Park but also with a view, conveniently located near the park and with all the amenities we needed. We were excited when we found exactly what we were looking for at this Charming Chalet Airbnb in Blue Ridge Wine Country. This spacious chalet was the perfect retreat to the countryside from the city and had everything we needed (and more) for a very comfortable stay while exploring Shenandoah National Park. Here is a full break-down of why we think this is the perfect spot to stay when visiting Shenandoah National Park.
Plenty of Space for Everyone
The large spacious main living area and big bedrooms make this Airbnb perfect spot for you to relax with your family yet have your own space as well. The main living space is inviting and there are many spots for you and your family to gather and relax including the stunning screened-in patio, the grandiose living room and the large kitchen island. We particularly loved the views of the backyard from the screened in-patio. We also loved being able to spread out in our own rooms. The large kitchen was a huge plus too as it allowed us to cook all our own meals. There is a grocery store, Food Lion, located about 7 minutes south of the Chalet that had everything we needed for cooking during our stay.
Baby, Toddler and Kid Friendly
This place was so accommodating to our daughter, who was 14 months old at the time of our visit. The Airbnb had a pack n play, high chair and stand alone baby seat for us to use. It was really nice to have all these things here ready for us and not have to bring them while traveling. Bonus–there also was plenty of books and toys for our daughter to enjoy. As you can see from the pictures, she really loved ‘reading’ all the books. The open concept of the main living area here also is a very baby/toddler/kid friendly floor plan. It was easy to keep an eye on our daughter from the kitchen and other parts of the main living space.
Close to Shenandoah National Park
This Charming Chalet Airbnb in Blue Ridge Wine Country is close to the National Park yet far enough away from it to avoid the crowds. Unless you are staying in Shenandoah National Park itself, where there can be a lot of traffic, there are not a lot of great close lodging options. From our Airbnb, it was less than an hour to most spots we wanted to explore. We particularly liked being only 30 minutes away from the White Oak entrance on the outbounds of the park. This area of the park sees less traffic than others and was truly our favorite spot in Shenandoah National Park as it was scenic and felt secluded on our early morning hike.

Connie is a fantastic host. She is very responsive, kind and accommodating. Her attention to detail was well appreciated too. For example, when we arrived, each of our beds had chocolate on them. Little touches like this made a huge difference. She also allowed us to check-in a little early and this was so appreciated while traveling with our baby. She also has lived in the area for over 30 years and is a great resource for exploring the area. When you arrive, she has a printed guide of things to do in the area, beyond Shenandoah National Park, and we found it very helpful.
