The View

For nearly seven years we have been serving guests visiting the Luray, VA area with our luxury cabins, most designed to serve larger groups.

After several months of renovations, Hawksbill Retreat, the newest Luray, VA cabin rental has recently announced an accommodation expansion. Hawksbill Retreat, formerly known as Jordan Hollow Inn just completed its second phase of development and is now offering an extra-large cabin rental just in time for the fall season.

Randy and Misty Howan of Howan Properties, Inc added the 44 acre Hawksbill Retreat in fall of 2012 to their already well-known and popular luxury cabins, Absolute Perfect Escape. "For nearly seven years we have been serving guests visiting the Luray, VA area with our luxury cabins, most designed to serve larger groups," said Randy Howan. "When we added Hawksbill Retreat to our property base we realized that there was a need in this area for couples to have a romantic cabin getaway that is a bit more upscale so in phase one of our site construction, we completed 6 one-bedroom cabins and one three-bedroom cabin to fill that void. In phase two we have focused on what will be one of the largest available Luray, VA cabin rentals."

Hawksbill Retreat was born from the popular, historic Jordan Hollow Inn. The property’s original homestead and barn was built in 1785 and began serving overnight guests as early as 1815. It continued to operate as a vacationing destination through 2009. The 10-unit inn on the 44 acre property had a motel-like feel. When Howan Properties purchased the land and structures, they did not believe the design and décor stood up to the quality of the Howan Properties, Inc. brand. So instead of opening the rooms immediately, the vacation rentals in the primary lodging complex had to undergo a complete renovation. The inn’s interior was demolished and the new floor plan converted the structure from having 10 separate standard motel rooms into a 10 bedroom, 5 bath cabin that sleeps up to 30 guests. "This is the type of accommodation we are accustomed to renting," said Howan. "Because we have several other properties designed specifically for larger groups and reunions that are constantly booked, we know there is still demand for a larger, luxury, mountain cabin rental."

The new structure provides a king suite with fireplace and garden tub, two queen suites with fireplaces, two bedrooms with two full beds each, three additional bedrooms with a queen bed in each, one bedroom with two queen beds and one bedroom with a king bed that offers a shower with 5 body jets. All bedrooms are decorated in a style consistent with a mountain cabin getaway and flat screen TVs. There is a full kitchen with upgraded appliances, hardwood floors throughout, a game room and a dining table that seats 20. The great room has a stone fireplace and multiple flat screens with an open floor design to provide comfortable seating and adequate visiting space. There is a wrap-around, covered porch around the entire cabin with plenty of outdoor seating, mountain views in every direction and a hot tub.

All guests at Hawsbill Retreat may enjoy the 44 acre property that is conveniently located, within minutes of shopping and major attractions such as Luray Caverns, the Shenandoah River, and the Shenandoah National Park . The property is only minutes from Luray, Va in the foothills of the Shenandoah National Park, which can be easily accessed, and it is less than 30 minutes from Massanutten Ski Resort and only 45 minutes from Bryce Resort. Across the street from Hawksbill Retreat is a municipal park with an Olympic-size swimming pool and plenty to do for kids. On property there are over two miles of accessible walking trails, a stocked fishing pond and 44 acres of space to explore.

Hawksbill Retreat has become one of the best Luray, Va vacation rentals for couples, friends, families or larger group outings. If you are looking for the perfect location for a romantic and relaxing weekend getaway from the daily stresses of life or want a getaway with co-workers, family or friends, then Hawksbill Retreat is the perfect destination for you.
