Area Info

Depending on when you visit, there’s a host of planned activities for all ages to help you make the most of your great outdoors vacation, including bonfires, haunted trail walks, storytelling and a variety of crafts.

Watership Harbour is our pool and recreation area located near Friendship Square pavilion. Complete with expansive main pool, an activity pool, two hot tubs and an interactive spray ground, this “mini water park” is fun for all ages. The main lodge also offers an indoor and outdoor pool and kids’ pool with a lake view.

Friendship Square features a general store, the Trader’s Deli, and Freedom Hall where movies and the Musket Ball Dance are held. There are also plenty of arts and crafts for the whole family, an arcade, fitness center, giant chessboard, sports courts and equipment rental.

At Nickajack Park adults can play horseshoes while the kids enjoy the playscape. Nearby Makepeace Station hosts organized hikes and excursions. Trails are interactive and play host to kids’ games, colonial trivia, wildlife education, and ghost tours. Guest storytellers, lectures, sing-a-longs and many other activities also take place in the Liberty Amphitheater.

Sallie’s Stables and our Equestrian Center have over two-dozen trail horses take you into the woods and across the historic fields.

Speaking of history, the surrounding area is often called the “Cradle of Democracy” because three of the first U.S. presidents once lived within three miles of each other here. A short drive and a nice trip back in time will bring you to Monticello, the famous home of Thomas Jefferson; Montpelier, James Madison’s home; and James Monroe’s Ash Lawn. One look at any of these homes and you’ll soon see why they attract visitors year after year.

There’s another tasty attraction in the area that will quench your thirst for vacation experiences. Local vineyards and wineries dot the landscape of the surrounding countryside. Day trips are encouraged and tours of both the vineyards and the wineries will give you a chance to not only get a feel for the industry, but a taste as well; enjoy!

    This resort probably has more activities than any of the other resorts we’ve been to. Also, the golf course is very nice. Our cabin was very nice and clean. Although there are many accomodations to choose from and they look like they are very close together, Shenandoah Crossing must have carefully planned the layout because they are very private. My husband and I were there in April. I would highly recommend this resort for families. The pool looked very inviting. The next time we visit we want to experience a Yurt! Also, it has a very nice RV park. I would give it ****.

    This past weekend we stayed at Shenandoah Crossing for the second time this past weekend! Love Love LOVE this place! The first time we were in the open floor plan yurt and this time the 2 bedroom yurt. I expected the outdoor pools/hot tubs to be closed, and much to my suprise it was open!!! Great all around experience both times. Can’t wait to visit again! Now only if I could talk my husband into purchasing a time share…where can I find information? :O)

    We have been staying at Shenandoah Crossing since 1988, the cabins and resort
    in general have been greatly upgraded and improved since we first started staying there, it is halfway to Longwood University In Farmville, Va. The
    entire town of Gordonsville has improved their downtown also over the past
    24 hrs. I always wished we could stay more than a week-end.Peaceful, relaxing,staff is so nice and helpful. Enjoy, We have for many years.

    My Family and I have been Blue Green members for the past 8 years. We have been to several resorts up and down the East Coast, hands down this is our favorite. If rest and relaxtion is what you need, the crossings provide that for you. Majority of the time our kids want to go 100 miles per hour, the staff is always there to assist and have numerous activities to keep them engaged.

    We always have a great time at this resort, and will continue to visit this family vacation spot.

    As an owner I have enjoyed several of the TimeShare resorts. Enjoyed each one for their individuality. Shenandoah has special memorties. Have visited twice and enjoyed just as much the second time. Hoping to get reservations for this fall in a Yurt. Thanks to the staff for all they do to make everyone feel at home. I agree with the person who commented that you actually feel alone even though you can see other cabins here andthere. So tranquil. A great for everyone be it families, friends, or a single needing time alone. My only wish it that Bluegreen bemoes more pet friendly. Having little Bichons that don’t shed, don’t bark to disturb anyone, and are well behaved indoors and out…I would love to have them with me when enjoying wantering around Shenandoah Crossing. This is the only reason I hesitate when making resevations.

    I am currently in the process of planning my wedding at Shenandoah Crossing July 26, 2012. I called for info on locations and have been patiently awaiting for the information. After becoming bluegreen owners this was the first place we booked our family vacation which is one of the reasons we are planning our wedding at this location, the other being this will probably be the last time I will be able to vacation with all of my children. I’ve already booked my accommodations and am looking forward to being able to see what locations are available for the ceremony. Wish that we would be able to book boat rentals and horseback riding online ahead of time though. Also wish that was more photos and being able to see what type of activities will be available when we visit. I am really hoping that they will still be offering the line dancing in the stables when we visit.

    I’ve people comment on ‘yurts’. What is a yurt?

  13. Anonymous wrote:

    A yurt is a portable, bent wood-framed dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. The structure comprises a crown or compression wheel (tüýnük) usually steam bent, supported by roof ribs which are bent down at the end where they meet the lattice wall (again steam bent). The top of the wall is prevented from spreading by means of a tension band which opposes the force of the roof ribs. The structure is usually covered by layers of fabric and sheep’s wool felt for insulation and weatherproofing.

    I also wish Bluegreen would become more pet friendly…or should I say, PET FRIENDLY! This prevents us from using our points most of the time as we have an older pom whom we will not place in a kennel. Wonderful pets..a Shiz and pom who are pretty prefect children!

    We love Shenandoah Crossing because of its proximity to Richmond and D.C. We contacted our legislators and set up tours for various D.C. attractions including the Pentagon and Capitol. Be sure and contact them as early as you possibly can. I can’t wait to see the Cherry blossoms in bloom on a boat cruise we have also reserved. We have stayed in a two bedroom cabin three years ago,(fine needed some updating), a townhome 7 years ago(better but thin walls), and this time we are going to be in a grande yurt. I disagree with the individual who said the golf course was great. It is run out of a trailer. We live on a golf course so I had a little different expectation than what I found at the golf course property on our first visit, but the mini golf offers lots of fun for young and old. Bluegreen and Shenandoah Crossing, don’t change your pet policy. I am an avid animal lover, but there is no way I want to stay in a unit where a pet has been or have pets on property. I love your point structure. I can stretch my points far at your resort and that makes for a happy Bluegreen owner.

    Shenandoah Crossing was a beautiful place to visit. Just don’t use Bass Pro Shops to book your vacation. We were approached by a girl to get 4 free $25 gift cards to spend 2 nights 3 days here. The lodge caught fire which was where we were going to stay. Bass Pro was suppose to call and let us know about the fire, but did not. If they had we would have probably been able to go somewhere else. When we got to the resort we found out that we were not on the list of visitors. This was a 250 mile trip The resort did offer us a room at the Comfort in free of charge because there was nowhere for us to stay there. The Comfort in was 15 miles away. The resort was very helpful, and felt bad that we had this problem. Shenandoah Crossing has the nicest people that I have met in a long time. We enjoyed what time we did spend there I wish it was longer. I you book this place through Bass Pro be aware if you have a problem Bass Pro won’t help you. Book through Bluegreen themselves you will get better service. These people love their job. Bass Pro does not like their job, they are there just to answer the phone, somethimes.

    Have stayed once in a yurt didn’t really care for it. It was extremely hot during the day we thought the AC was not working…but it was July. Also the sun comes in through the round opening in the top so forget sleeping past sunrise. Going back next week staying in a cabin looking forward to that love the resort planning on horseback riding, boating and fishing. Disappointed about the fire…loved the tavern and indoor pool hopefully the weather will cooperate because the outdoor pool is awesome!

    My family have been to the resort a few times and had a wonderful time. We have stayted in a 3bed cabin, 2bed cabin, and yurt. No matter which we had they were all great!!! The younger boys loved the yurt although they didn’t seem to keep the surrounding noise out as well. We were hoping to return this fall again, any news on rebuilding the main lodge and indoor pool???

    We’ve been to Shenandoah Crossing twice and enjoyed the peaceful quiet & great walks! Stayed in 2 bedroom cabin – once with deck overlooking the lake. Absolutely gorgeous. LOVE the new illuminated cabin # signs! Sure did enjoy the fitness room and indoor pool & hot tub in the lodge; when do you expect this to be open again?

    Has anyone stayed in a 3 bedroom cabin? I am trying to find floor plans online and they are only showing the 3 bedroom town home, which sleeps 10 not 8. We will be visiting in early November for our first timeshare experience.

    Had a girls long weekend at Shenandoah Crossing – loved the 2 bedroom cabin. We did the horseback riding, massage in the cabin, shopping in Gordonsville and Charlottesville. Did not have time to do the Wineries. Wish we had more time – will definitely go back maybe in the summer to enjoy the pool, golf and hiking. Hopefully the lodge is back in business by then.
