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.

Beautiful Resort. Awesome Water Park, Great Golf Course, Hiking, fishing, hunting, climbing, snow skiing, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, family-friendly Adventures such as zip lining, snow and summer tubing, Kids Adventure Course, Kids play land. Fun indoor activities such as many craft classes, cooking demonstration, dining experiences including Murder Mystery Show, live music, wine tastings, and more. And when you want to relax, there's a Spa on site. Would recommend for families or couples any time of year. There's plenty to do!

The rooms are a great size. The kitchen is nice, but does not have an oven or stove. It has a cooking top that works well. Our griddle only worked part of the time. It stinks that everything on the resort costs. There is plenty of food around. The hiking trials are decent, but they are not marked very well. We had a medical emergency while there and they staff was wonderful. Security showed up to help before the ambulance and they offered us a ride back from the hospital if needed.

if you don't plan on exploring outside of the resort you'll enjoy the place. they definitely gear there activities and events to young children but do have a couple things for adults. good one timer. not planning to go there again. although if you have young kids multiple trips would be fun

Great place. Spent the recent holiday there with the family and had an awesome time. Previous stays have been just amazing. We come back season after season for the amenities, customer service and enjoyable experience. The condos are very nice; spacious, well apportioned, stocked kitchen, grills outside, washer and dryer, comfortable beds and giant bathtubs. Ample parking that is handicap accessible. The resort offers a great winter experience, from skiing to snowboarding, tubing to golf, and an awesome water park; something for everyone. Lessons are available for new skiers and snowboarders. Rental gear is also available. Adaptive experiences for all ages and abilities. Don't miss the indoor water park, even on the coldest winter day it's balmy inside. Summertime activities include golf, hiking, water sports, an awesome water park, biking, trekking and so much more. Adaptive experiences for all ages and abilities. Great restaurants on site offer a good selection and they can accommodate gluten free needs. Customer service is fantastic. Nothing but awesome things to say about the staff. They are the quintessential example of how a positive customer experience is done. A definite must visit.

We stayed for a week. The rooms were really nice and comfortable. We stayed at Eagle Trace. There were lots of amenities and programs for a fee but we didn't use most of it because we were there to hike and made a couple trips into D.C.. The kids loved the diving board at the pool! we would definitely return except for the 14 and a half hour drive it took us to get there, so we'll see.
