Why Cabin Capital?

The Story Behind Our Distinction

Just 90 miles from Washington, DC and only 1.5-2 hours from Charlottesville, Richmond, and the Northern Virginia metro area, Page County has preserved the rural charm of its agricultural past while developing a true playground for outdoor lovers interested in cycling, hiking, canoeing, ATVing, and more. The hundreds of cabins available for rent make Luray and Page County a unique destination able to accommodate everyone looking to stay in the area, from a single Appalachian Trail hiker to a couple looking for a romantic getaway to a family reunion or corporate retreat!


Page County was officially named the Cabin Capital of Virginia in April of 2009, with a presentation from District 15 Representative Todd Gilbert, and we have truly lived up to the name by expanding our numbers even more. With an estimated 400-500 cabins calling Luray and Page County home, visitors can literally take their pick of amenities to suit every need. Whether you are seeking a restored log cabin, a newly built home, or luxury cottage, you can find them all in Page County, Virginia–The Cabin Capital of Virginia.



We offer rustic Blue Ridge Mountain retreats, cabins by the Shenandoah River, and convenient in-town lodging. Our cabin rentals run the gamut from primitive to upscale and opulent. Some of our bed & breakfasts and inns also offer private cottages on their property where you can experience the privacy you desire, but with the style and breakfast our bed and breakfast visitors love.
