Cabin Capital Of Virginia

They speckle the mountainsides. They line the bends of the Shenandoah River.

And with 250-plus of them located here, Page County could soon be known as the “Cabin Capital of Virginia.”

An effort by the Luray-Page Chamber of Commerce is in the works to get a resolution before the Virginia General Assembly to designate the county as such.

Tourism generated $4.5 million in local and state tax revenue in 2007. Rental cabins played a big part in that.

“It makes sense from a marketing standpoint,” said Karen Riddle, chamber president. “We have a lot of local cabin owners.”

With the Virginia Tourism Corporation standing by ready to help promote the new slogan and Front Royal designated the “Canoe Capital of Virginia,” Riddle said the new namesake will be one of the many ways to market the area.

“We can offer a unique cabin experience that will leave a lasting impression with visitors,” Riddle added.
