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!

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.

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 a BluRay player.

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 an LL Bean rollaway (in case a small child comes 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

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.

Super cute and a perfect couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this adorable little cabin! It was clean and new and the perfect size for two. We did two nights and enjoyed the hot tub and fireplace immensely! The only thing we didn’t love was the bed, it’s pretty firm and wasn’t great for us. We will be back but will just bring a mattress topper next time ;). All in all an awesome weekend and the hosts were gracious and welcoming!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! I wish there was a way to make the mattress perfect for everyone; I see that you noted that it was firmer than you would like, but a prior review said that it was softer than they prefer. I wish there was a way to flip it over to be soft on one side, firm on the other! You were a great guest and we will look forward to having you visit us again!

Beautiful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the cabin for are anniversary trip and it was wonderful. Everything you need is there or near by. Only issue we had was the bed was to soft for us. The Hawkbill Restaurant down the road had the best breakfast. Will definitely re visit.

Perfect spot for a romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean, cozy and perfect for two people! It literally had everything you might need for your stay! We enjoyed hiking and driving on the skyline drive and visiting the luray caverns! Luray was only 10 minutes away! We enjoyed drinking our coffee on the deck in the mornings and listening to the wildlife. Lisa was a great host and quick to respond to all questions during our stay! Would definitely recommend this cabin to someone looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay!

Very relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

  • 5 of 5

The White Pine Loft was a very clean and quiet cabin that was perfect for a couple celebrating a birthday. We saw a momma bear and her two cubs while sipping our morning coffee.
