Description

Sweetwater Cottage is a river front cottage situated in the middle of 26 accessable river miles of the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. It has a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove and oven, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, waffle maker, and a full bath with tub/shower combination. It now has two bedrooms, living room, dining area picnic tables, large fire pit, gas grill, and (new as of 2016) a 12’x40’ screened-in porch with a spectacular river view. Sleeping arrangements in the cottage includes two queen size beds and one double futon bed in the living room and one double futon bed in the dining extension. There is DSL Internet and NETFLIX, TV/DVD player as well as a CD stereo player available. You will need to bring, your own linen, sleeping bags, towels, pillow with cases, food and beverages. Expand your accomadations by bring you or your friends RV to connect to the full hook-up located adjacent to the Cottage. Also, RV hook-ups are available at separate sites!

The area offers excellent hunting as well as ultra-lite and fly-fishing for Small Mouth Bass, Brim, Red Eye Bass as well as baiting for old standbys like catfish and carp. There are numerous hiking and riding trails throughout the area and over 20 miles of good canoeing water with public access. If you are into plants and trees, there are a wide variety of both in the area. I also recommend a good book and a pair of binoculars for bird watching (Baltimore Orioles are nesting along the river in spring and early summer) or curl up by the campfire or in the hammock with that favorite novel you have been meaning to read. This is definitely Virginia Outdoors at it's finest!

About The Owner

About Jan Dertzbaugh
Married in Washburn, WI, in 1974 and traveled to many different places while in the Army settling in Remington, VA (2004) with Bear (half lab and golden) and Daisy (Pound Puppy)and her husband John. Jan is a highly successful domestic engineer and mother of Tim and Casey. John retired from the Army in 1995 and is still serving at PEO Soldier, Ft. Belvoir, VA.

Jan Dertzbaugh purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Jan Dertzbaugh chose Luray
Sweetwater was love at first sight! We originally purchased it as a private retreat, but found that being able to show others the Virginia Outdoors and what a relaxing time was all about was extremely gratifying and decided to start sharing it with others . Life here moves at the speed of the river - very slowly! The river at Sweetwater washes away all the stresses associated with life in and around the National Capital region and rejuvenates the mind, body and soul as only the peace and solitude of the outdoors can.

What makes this cottage unique
Love sitting out along the river bank on a cool spring morning listening to the songs of the Baltimore Orioles or the owls hooting on a warm summer night while sleeping on the screened in porch. The peace and tranquility of floating down the river on a warm summers day while laying on an air mattress with my face submerged under water with mask and snorkel watching the river bottom and all the associated critters pass by. Or the joy of a “gourmet” smore cooked to perfection over a campfire while playing 4, 5, 6, and 12 stringed instruments and singing (or howling) with friends and family is one of life's greatest pleasures. Being rewarded with a nice bass as a result of a not so perfect cast. Finally, marveling at all of the wonders that surround you at Sweetwater and appreciating the beauty of God's creativity!

Sweetwater River Front Cottage
Loved it!

We had a wonderful stay at Sweetwater. The setting on the river is just perfect - it's hard to imagine anything more peaceful than a morning cup of coffee on the huge screened-in porch overlooking the river. Our boys loved all the yard space to run around and play. It was so nice to stay at a place that had lots of the extras that aren't necessarily a given at a rental property - knives that are actually sharp, all the things you're likely to forget (soap, shampoo, condiments), even a full spice rack! This is especially nice when you're about a half hour from the nearest store. Communication from Jan & John was great leading up to and during the stay. We would definitely come back!

Stayed March, 2018

Thanks so much for a wonderful review!! The morning coffee on the porch overlooking the river while watching the river light up with the morning sun is one of our favorite things to do. Can hardly wait for those little guys to get older and start exploring in the river and surrounding hiking trails. Hope you come back soon!!
John
