Mission Statement:

To provide remarkable experiences in all that Massanutten Resort has to offer in a safe and enjoyable environment; always being mindful of our commitment to excellent service and the impact we have on the lives of others and the world around us.

History:

In 1968, John L. Hopkins, II, sat at a table in rural McGaheysville, in the kitchen of his great-grandfather's house. He gazed out the window that frames a spectacular view of the Massanutten Peak, and contemplated the woes of being a farmer caught in the middle of a four-year-long drought.

Three years later, May 26, 1971, the development of 5,200 acres in Massanutten, by a group of ten investors, was announced at a luncheon held at Spotswood Country Club in Harrisonburg. And now, forty years later, Massanutten Village is a thriving four-season resort and community of over 1,000 single family homes, 1300 timesharing units, and a multi-million dollar ski business.

There's been a lot of 'water over the dam' in that time, a lot of pieces that have fallen into place, and a few pieces that have fallen out of place, but the history of the development of Massanutten is as exciting to study as its future looks to be. Massanutten's rather undramatic beginnings from a kitchen window view are best described as a chronology with a generous amount of detail, cupfuls of facts, and a healthy dash of wonder at the enormity of the project John L. only vaguely realized in his mind's eye that day at his window.

Its a fun place to go but can be VERY crowded during the off season. And the water was pretty cold, but they say they keep it around 80 degrees year round. But this water must have been in the 60's. To get food took about 25 minutes waiting in line...Better to go upstairs and go to the sit-down restaurant before you go down to the pool. The arcade is cool but a decent amount of machines are out of order.

This place is beautiful all around. Coming here as a tourist from South Florida, we were fascinated by the scenery around the resort including the snowy white top mountains and frozen lakes filled with ducks and swans. There's a lot to do in the area. The Ski resort is a lot of fun. It is worth noting that there are some great skiing & tubing specials that are worth taking advantage of. For example, the Tubing Tuesdays for $20 or Monday Madness skiing/snowboarding for $40 which includes the equipment. There are several caverns just outside of the resort which are really cool. Also, the nearby city of Harrisonburg has a Main Street area which is a fun hang-out spot. And finally, Washington D.C. is only about a 2-hour drive from the resort. So you can feel free to include a day at the nation's capitol as part of your trip.

Got invited to go through their timeshare presentation and in return we would receive a visa gift card and a 2 night stay. The presentation and tour went way longer than they said. After getting done we did get the certificate and gift card. Trying to redeem the 2 night stay is pretty difficult for a weekend stay. If you do not call the reservation number right at the time they open on they day the open the block of rooms you will not get that weekend. I would recommend doing a day trip for the presentation then do the stay at a later time so you get the whole weekend to yourself. As for the resort it seems pretty nice. We will explore it more during our stay but will most likely spend most of our time in town or hiking in the area.

This was our first trip here. If you love outdoors and mountains this is the place for you. Customer service is amazing. We stayed at the Regal Vista condos. They were amazing. Definitely felt like a home away from home. Campfire Grill is the place to go in the evenings for a meal. Water park is amazing and they offer a military discount. We will be back during summer. Another must see is the overlook on top of the mountain

Always a pleasure to visit this location. The beautiful Shenandoah Valley region is wonderful to visit and this Resort has lots of activities. Actually, there are enough activities on the resort to keep you from visiting local areas. Totally enjoyed a falconry experience through the resort which was so unique! Accommodations are always clean although each of the different activities are additional to your initial payments, so be prepared to continue to spend more money after your arrival. Can't wait to come back in February to fully experience all the winter activities!
