About the property

Gorgeous White Pine Interior, Lofted Bedroom, So Romantic!

The White Pine Loft was completed in June 2014. Offering luxurious surroundings, privacy, and the highest quality in construction and finishings, this property promises to leave you refreshed!

This cabin serves our guests in two different ways.

For our guests looking for a romantic getaway, this lofted cabin is ideal. It is beautifully crafted with all pine interior, soaring cathedral ceiling with a wall of windows, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a cozy living room with fireplace and large screen tv, and a kitchen island as well as dining table for enjoying romantic dinners (or relaxing late breakfasts!) Outside you will find a very spacious outdoor deck with a luxurious hot tub, Weber gas grill and outdoor table/chairs, a covered front porch with additional seating, and a fire pit for enjoying a roaring fire under the stars. The hot tub offers a relaxing oasis with stunning night sky views after a long day of enjoying the The Shenandoah Valley.

For our larger groups that rent our other cabins, this cabin serves as a perfect socializing and overflow space. Guests can wander back to their cabins to sleep or relax and those that wish to socialize a bit longer can continue to do so at this cabin. There are paths through the woods that easily bring our guests from cabin to cabin, easily walked by children or elderly.

As found in our other properties, this home offers Egyptian cotton linens, luxury bath linens, and a fully equipped kitchen. You may stay indoors all day! If you can’t resist staying connected to the outside world, there is WiFi, DirecTV with Pandora, and two BluRay players.

If you do venture out, much awaits you outside the door. Downtown Luray is minutes away with its unique gift and antique stores, cozy coffee and bakery shops, fine and casual dining, live theatre, biking and walking trails, historical buildings, and much more. Luray Caverns, maze, and museums may keep you busy all day. Shenandoah National Park with its acclaimed Skyline Drive will surely tempt you with miles of biking, hiking, picnicking, or just driving and enjoying the gorgeous mountain views at every turn in the road. You can also choose from 18 Hole Golf in Luray and nearby New Market, winery tours, Civil War sites, canoeing/kayaking/tubing on the Shenandoah River, or skiing and snow tubing at nearby Massanutten Resort. Don’t forget the hunting, fishing, and outdoor ATV riding and wonderful Lake Arrowhead with its swimming, boating, grilling, and walking trails. Adventure and natural beauty abound in the area during all four seasons!

Details about the White Pine Loft...

A large wrap-around porch with plenty of cozy chairs as well as dining table and chairs to enjoy the sights and sounds of the valley and mountains around you. A hot tub offers a relaxing setting under the night sky. Inside, you'll find a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and every kitchen tool you'll need for cooking. The living room offers a gorgeous natural stone fireplace, large flatscreen tv w/DirecTV, Pandora radio, and BluRay player. Upstairs in the romantic loft is the bedroom. Here you will find an amazingly comfortable queen bed with Egyptian cotton linens as well as two LL Bean rollaways (in case the kids came along!)

About Jim and Lisa Franceschini

We have been mountain lovers since we married 25 years ago and are realizing our dream of building and renting mountain cabins in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Last year we met a gifted and extraordinarily talented builder who has built three cabins for us. The White Pine Loft is the most recent one completed and we feel truly blessed to call it ours and are excited to be able to share it with others!

Jim and Lisa Franceschini purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jim and Lisa Franceschini chose Shenandoah Valley

This property is nestled half way up Roundhead Mountain, offering both wooded privacy and seasonal mountain views. It satisfies the vacationer looking for a wooded retreat as well as the vacationer looking for views of and access to all that the Shenandoah Valley offers.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is incredibly special, romantic, and different with its cathedral ceiling, white pine interior, and lofted bedroom. The property is nestled half way up Roundhead Mountain, offering both wooded privacy and seasonal mountain views.

Great spring break trip to White Pine Loft Cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at White Pine Loft. The cabin is very clean and comfortable. We made use of every amenity! The kitchen is well outfitted for a home cooked meal. We made use of the gas grill as well as outdoor dining on the deck. Direct TV allowed us to catch an episode of our favorite show. The cabin's location allows for easy access to the Shenandoah National Park. We were able to squeeze in four different hikes as we explored the mountains. The locals of Stanley are very friendly. We were warmly welcomed at the Brookshire Restaurant. The buffet is excellent as well as a great deal. To really mix with the locals, we suggest breakfast at the Hawksbill Diner or the Hardees in Luray. A pleasant conversation is a great way to slow your pace down. Lisa and Jim have established a wonderful compound of cabins in the mountains. We definitely plan on making a return trip.

Solemn serenity

  • 5 of 5

White Pine Loft was fabulous!! Maybe the cleanest vacation rental my wife and I have ever stayed in. Jim & Lisa were very accommodating in the days leading up to our trip to the valley. Upon arrival, it was obvious they put a lot of thought into making this cabin getaway as relaxing as possible for all its guests. Many of the basics we brought with us were already provided. Nearly 1000 sq. feet all to ourselves on an incredibly warm February weekend ...... we will never forget our time in the Luray/Stanley area. You can't go wrong with this property!!

There are a million things to do in the Shenandoah Valley area!! Luray Caverns (10 minutes from the home) and Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive (15 minutes) are 'must do' items. The Park offers gorgeous drives, overlooks, hiking, biking, and ranger-led activities.

Luray (10 minutes) offers the Hawksbill Greenway (fantastic walking/biking along a rushing creek), plenty of shopping and dining, mini golf, 18 hole golf courses, zip lines, horseback riding, and more. Lake Arrowhead (10 minutes) offers fishing, boating, BBQ facilities, and swimming/relaxing at the beach area. Hawksbill Recreation Area (5 minutes) offers an outdoor pool and BBQ area. Spectacular canoeing/kayaking/tubing along the Shenandoah River (up to Class 2 Rapids) is available on your own or through several area Outfitters. Wineries (closest is two miles from the cabin), antique shopping, shooting ranges, jet skiing, off-roading, outdoor concerts and festivals, and even a zoo are all within half an hour or less. Want to drive a little further? Presidential homes, Civil War sites, and Harrisonburg and Charlottesville are all 30-60 minutes away. Of course, if all you want is to stay at the cabin and relax with good food, a good book, and beautiful scenery, downtown Stanley (2 miles) offers a grocery store and a couple great restaurants.

The Visitor's Center in Luray is an excellent source of additional area information.
