“Big house”
3 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 13 mai 2014 Séjour en mai 2014

Big house in Elkton about 30 minute drive to JMU. Quite a few decent restaurants between the house and JMU. So if you are at JMU for a graduation or parents weekend this is a quieter option out of the traffic of Harrisonburg. We reserved it last minute to attend JMU graduation. Directions from GPS were terrible. Very easy to get off 33 to Tanyard Bridge. Not a bad drive however some of the roads getting to the house are a little steep. 4WD would be needed in icy/snowy weather. House was very nice with lots of beds and lots of room. Downstairs included pool table, air hockey, dart board and arcade game. Patio outside with fireplace. Yard is very steep so there really isn't any useable "yard". Gravel driveway. Owner easy to work with. Cleaning could have been better. Also the place had tons of stink bugs. I cleaned them up every day. Not much the owner can do about them. They are just a big nuisance so be prepared. Views were ok. Basically just looking at the surrounding forest.

Thank you for letting us serve you at Hensley Hollow Lodge.
You are correct that our 4,900 sq ft lodge, built on 23 acres in the Shenandoah Mountains does require 4 WD during inclement weather. We do have additional parking at the owners cabin at the base of our driveway. The steepness of the mountain terrain requires driveways to be zig zagged. And GPS does give very poor directions. I hope we adequately explained this to you, and detailed good driving directions prior to your booking, in the generic email we sent.
We are sorry if this rural Mountain Retreat did not fully meet your expectations. A log cabin is very expensive to build and maintain and provides many challenges from the weather and nature. The log stack or walls, actually shrink up to 2", after initial construction. This requires expansion joints over doors and windows and false interior walls on the exterior walls in many places. Our shrinkage should be complete after these 9 years. This allows us to inspect and reseal certain areas.
Chinese stink bugs were apparently brought to the USA, near Reading Pennsylvania about 1998 and are migrating South and East. They are now an epidemic in 8 states and are causing millions of dollars of crop damage, and destroying some orchards. They have no known natural predator in the USA (except for the wood pecker who made a hole in my shed). We have a full time nine year contract with Permatreat, but they "exclude" many abundant insects (including Chinese stink bugs and lady bugs and carpenter bees etc) from their warranty. However we have consulted with their experts and other scientist on a successful treatment plan. WE WILL DEFEAT THE CHINESE STINK BUGS. We have researched them extensively as they are in every home in the Shenandoah Valley and North to Pennsylvania. They have a tough outer shell on their back which makes most pesticides very slow to work.
We have taken a month off from work (may 13 to June 13)to finish eliminating them. We have treated all interior access points and those that make it into the living area now die within a few minutes. We have removed and replaced knee walls in the loft and all window and door trim. We are sealing all interior and exterior access points and treating the entire outside of the lodge with insect repellant and insecticide in the stain. We are removing all interior and exterior trim and treating and then sealing with new caulking and Great Stuff Spray foam insulation. The lodge will be entirely air tight by June 1. This lost time from work and treatment will cost us about $20,000 but we will defeat them. Our last count was about 20 stink bugs make it into the lodge in one day and they die within a few minutes.
I hope you enjoyed your special graduation event at JMU. And we hope we can serve you again.
