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 Stanley

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.

Beautiful wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much! We had a lovely stay. This cabin actually wasn't available due to a booking error but the owner let us stay in one of their other larger cabins for the same price. Very clean and cozy. Hot tub was amazing. Loved it!

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!

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.
