This quaint, country home and cabin is located at the foot of a mountain overlooking the famous Shenandoah River known for its fishing and beauty. It is a rustic place with the basic for comforts, it is not a 5 star hotel that has everything perfect and super modern but more of a rustic, old grandma's home style. So please be aware of that fact so you don't get disappointed when you arrive and see that is not like a luxury resort.
Guests have access to a private entrance to the Shenandoah River, which is just across the home. The area was recently designated a national landmark by the U.S. Department of Interior because of its beauty and historical importance. In particular, a favorite activity is to take the Skyline Drive, which is operated by the National Park Service. Alternatively, visit the Luray Caverns, which is just a 15 minute drive from the home. Shopping and restaurants are just 15 minutes from the home.
CABIN AND MAIN FEATURES
The home has a large deck from which you witness the spectacular view by day of the Shenandoah River and Shenandoah Valley, which is surrounded by mountains full of forests. On the same deck by night you witness the starry night seeing the sky full of stars and planets! Also you can appreciate of all of these marvelous views while enjoy being in a nice hot tub. The home is locally known as “1 Little Vineyard by the River”, since it has a small and developing vineyard and as a result you will see this theme reflected inside the home through its decor. The kitchen, comes with most of what you need to cook or simply to serve prepared food you bring from area eateries. The living room has a convenient gas fireplace, nice flat screen TV and surround sound system where you and your kids can comfortably enjoy different shows or movies (even from the kitchen while cooking) or simply play some nice music while you cook or enjoy conversations with your family and friends.
ACTIVITIES AND CONVENIENCES
Guests come to either rest or to enjoy the many activities the area offers, which include fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, mountain climbing, swimming or kayaking or canoeing. Those into the civil war will find many important historical sites or battle locations very close by. Guests have access to a private entrance to the Shenandoah River, which is just across from the home. The home is easily accessible from Washington DC or from Northern Virginia. Flights from anywhere in the country are usually reasonable so travel cost should not deter you. Those coming from outside the area will find it easy to travel to the area, since you have three major airports serving the area: Dulles International Airport, Washington Reagan Airport or Baltimore International Airport.
Come and enjoy the peaceful environment here at the home and at the same time have easy access to such notable places as the Smithsonian Museums, Capital, and the White House. Alternatively, you can simply drive down the famous and breathtaking Skyline Drive operated by the U.S. National Park Service, which is minutes from the home. The town of Luray is also an easy 15 minute drive from the home and there you will have access to shopping, restaurants and to the renowned Luray Caverns.
LAYOUT OF CABIN
The cabin sleeps up to 12 persons. It has different areas so family don't feel too tight with eachother so it's large enough but it has been divided and planned in a certain way so that if you are just a couple and are looking to spend some cozy time with your partner or a small family, don't worry, you would get that cozy feeling from the design of the cabin as well.
For those wanting to know how private the bedrooms are, here is a description of cabin’s layout.
Keep in mind that the cabin is an A-frame cabin with a loft. The cabin has four bedrooms; two bedrooms have total privacy with doors (one is located at the basement), one is a loft and offers some privacy and another smaller bedroom with no doors and therefore with little privacy. Here is a further description.
On the main floor are:
the kitchen, dining area, screened porch, 2 full bathrooms, a living room, a family room, and 2 "master" bedrooms. The main one has a door making this bedroom the one of the most private ones. It has a queen size bed. You will find the master bathroom right in front of this master bedroom at the end of the hallway.
Next to the living room is the second bedroom with a queen size, very comfortable bed and it has been redesigned for hosting couples. It connects to the A-frame portion of the home but has been somehow separated in case only one couple reserves the home and want a more intimate and cozy experience but can be open up in case larger families reserve the cabin.
The A Frame portion of the home has the loft, the private "master" bedroom and bathroom and a family room
The bedroom in the loft does not have doors, but yet the area is relatively private, since you have to be on the top floor to have clear view of the main bedroom. The loft has a full-size bed and a queen size futon.
The basement is finished and it has a private bedroom with a queen size bed and it has a door that closes for privacy and there's a living area right outside with a couch that converts into a full-size bed. The basement is not closed in, but rather is at the level of the driveway. It has its own private entry and sliding glass doors. So it’s not claustrophobic.
The main floor to the cabin has the main amenities needed including kitchen, living room, bathrooms and access to the main deck where the Hot tub is. There is no need to have access to the basement unless you have a very large party. Please know that most of the time, the cabin would be divided depending on the size of the party or if it is just a couple. If it is just one couple they would use only the new redesigned bedroom and the rest of the main floor except the A Frame portion of the cabin.
For groups of nine (9) adults and (2) two children They will have access to the A Frame Portion of the cabin but no access to the basement, since the main floor with the loft of the A-Frame accommodates these many guests.
Parties that are larger than 11 will have access to the basement, which will sleep up to four adults (has a single full-size bed in a private bedroom and has a full-size sleeper couch). Access to locked areas at the cabin would be available at an extra cost.
The kitchen is a large kitchen with all the basics provided for doing basic cooking (micro, dishwasher, fridge, dishes, pots and silverware).
The main living room is next to the kitchen and there is where you will find one full bathroom. The living room has a fireplace, flat screen TV (50') with cable and surround sound system.

About Fernando & Sissy Soriano
I grew up on a ranch in a rural part of California. Traveling often to Washington DC I found it was a perfect place to stay in touch with nature and to be in a peaceful environment far from the busy urban world. Yet I liked having access to Washington DC, which has all the entertainment one can possibly have from any large city.
Fernando & Sissy Soriano purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Fernando & Sissy Soriano chose Rileyville
I chose this place because it is full of nature and beauty, which it affords access to the nation’s capital. Whether one wishes to take it easy and just let time stop or be active in water sports or hiking, this place is ideal for both. I cannot think of a more beautiful home for getting away from it all!

Beautiful, relaxing cabin that's close to so many amazing things to do.
We had a fabulous weekend at the cabin and enjoyed all of the beauty surrounding it
Great weekend getaway for a group!
We had a great New Year's trip to the cabin. It had everything we needed. We were 10 friends--mix of couples and singles--in our late 20s. I suggest that the owners add the bedroom layout details to the property page because the way they've written it in the description is a little confusing. Throughout the weekend, the owners and property manager were responsive to questions or requests that we had. We had issues with the hot tub which we weren't able to get fixed because it was a holiday, but the owners were helpful in trying to solve the issue/make sure we were satisfied when it couldn't be. My only complaint is that the heating is not consistent throughout the house--particularly, at night the loft gets uncomfortably warm but the downstairs bedrooms are a little too cold (obviously fixable with extra blankets.) It was an unusually cold weekend so I don't expect that this is a big problem most of the time. Also note that the driveway is a little steep--it had snowed the day before we arrived and one of our (very full) cars had trouble getting up the driveway until we unloaded it a bit. Overall, we had a blast and were glad to be in this quirky little getaway.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of our property, we are glad you and your group had a nice time at the cabin and in the area.
In regards to the bedroom layout it is described and explained in the Property Details Section under Description and Layout of Cabin. Sometime people just don't take the time to read it all and they miss it. We are sorry if you found it confusing and if you have more specific suggestions to improve the description we can assure you that we will take into consideration those suggestions and apply them.
In regards to the heating issue we would've appreciate you letting us know while you were there and as soon as you were experiencing those things since it was just a matter of adjusting things better, we could've guided you so that you would've had a pleasant temperature all throughout the house. We are sorry you had to experience uncomfortable temperatures during your stay, we wish we would've known to solve this issue while you were there. We do provide extra blankets just in case guests need them, they are located in one of the closets.
Again, we thank you for your comments and will be working to improve things at the cabin so that all our guests feel comfortable during their stay. Thank you also for being patient and understanding with some of the challenges we had to deal with over that weekend. Happy Travels!
Very relaxing setting. Amenities were abundant. We had a wonderful stay.
We had a wonderful time. Beautiful area. Watching the stars from the hot tub was magical. Cabin had everything we needed.
Nice cabin for a relaxing weekend away
Beautiful views and charming location
The house is exactly as you see in the photos. It is rustic (translation: away from the city) and charming. For our group it worked out quite well because the area is beautiful. It is not a hotel, so do not any expect modern conveniences, except for WiFi. There are bugs outside, but the owners did a good job making sure they stayed there. All in all, our group was very content with the stay.
