Properties on Holiday Lettings can be sorted/ranked in the following ways:
Orders properties using various data points, in particular: ratings, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, minimum number of nights, and data relating to the interest in/bookings of the property through us, including the advertiser’s rate of providing quotes to travellers who make enquiries. Other factors include price, property capacity, number of photographs, location, amenities, appearance in search results, page views, and the advertiser’s responsiveness and cancellation rate.
Price low to high / high to low
Orders properties based on either (i) the property’s minimum nightly price, if the traveller has searched without dates, or (ii) the average nightly price for the applicable week of the year, if the traveller has input dates.
Orders properties by total number of reviews attached to the listing (highest to lowest), irrespective of average score. Where there is a listing with the same number of reviews as another (or a listing with no reviews), properties are sorted according to their proximity to the searched location.
“Raven Ridge Lodge is warm and welcoming…” My husband and I spent several days in this secluded mountain paradise in august 2012. The handsome Raven Ridge Lodge is warm and welcoming...We appreciated the comfortable beds, the beautifully tiled bathroom with the claw-footed tub, the well-appointed kitchen and watching the firewood burn through glass doors in a lovely soapstone stove. (Bill, our host, provided all the wood we needed!) It was tempting to stay inside by the fire but, in truth, we spent a good part of our leisure time rocking on the porches or lounging in the hot tub on the outdoor deck. (The water was just the right temperature when we arrived, by the way). This lodge is on a high mountain ridge, far away from city lights and the hot tub provided the perfect place to view the stars and to hear the wistful song of a nearby whippoorwill. We shouldn't have been surprised to hear such a rare treat because the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail wends its way through the property. One beautiful morning we did manage to pull ourselves away from all this luxury to enjoy the spectacular views from the property and to hike the Clinch Mountain Trail that also crosses the property. Our destination was the adjacent 4,800-acre Channels State Forest. These Great Channels of Virginia are not to be missed! They are an amazing series 400-million-year old sandstone outcroppings and maze-like crevices. There is not question that we will be back and the next time we'll bring some lucky friends along to enjoy this amazing place with us!
