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

Cabin on the middle of nowhere
Neat and tidy cabin in a remote setting surrounded by woods. Nice to have a/c , hot tub , full bath, downside is bedroom is upstairs in a loft with limited headspace and closets.
This cabin more than met my expectations! Very clean and cozy. We absolutely would recommend it to anyone.
We had an AMAZING time! The loft was absolutely beautiful and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The views were breathtaking! We even had two deer out front the first morning we were there! Will definitely be back!
Beautiful Cabin and super clean!
We really enjoyed our stay here and Lisa and Jim were great host as well.
Needed a quick getaway. I was not disappointed. The cabin was clean and inviting. Wifi worked great. The cabin is located off on it's own but close enough to a walmart in case you forgot to pack something. :) Lisa was great in her communications and answered all my questions and kept me informed of the snow storm that was coming and how that could affect my stay. The cabin has all the instructions which made it very user friendly. I will definitely stay again.
Lovely place: quiet, clean, with beautiful surroundings
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.
