About The Owner


- Formerly managed by River Bluff Cabins

Why The Owner chose Rileyville

Local people often book this home as a true "find" in this area. It is quiet and has one of the nicest river spots to relax on the Shenandoah for a quick dip, fishing or just relaxing. Come see why folks who know the area, return year after year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the place! Beautiful views of the mountains and peaceful fields. Quiet and secluded. House was better than pictures! My girlfriend and I went together and this place was just huge! Would very comfortably accommodate much larger parties. Close enough to Luray for groceries. Loved the walk down to the Riverside clearing and campfire area. Spent a lot of time fishing so we enjoyed the private river access. Big rock ledges run straight into river from access point and make a killer small mouth spot approx 1/4 to 3/4 across river about 20 ft upstream from bank. Wade up and out along ledge. WIFI and Satellite TV were great. Relaxed enjoying wine in the hot tub while soaking in views. What more could you ask for!?

Great Location and Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The house was a clean upon arrival and had everything you need to feel at home. Nina was quick to respond to questions and checked in once to during the week to be sure all was good. The house was much larger than it appears in pictures. There was plenty of room for our family of 5 and dog to spread out in the large kitchen, living room and den. Porch was a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the mountain view and wildlife. Hot tub was a great addition after a day out exploring. River access is good for fishing, kayaking, or just floating around.

House is very close to the attractions in Luray and to all the outdoor activities in Shenandoah National Park and the valley. We would definitely recommend it and look forward to coming back.

Everything you do expect from an old farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

Nina was very responsive and easy to partner with. The river and surrounding area are gorgeous. Some of my favorite time was on the big porch with my morning coffee. The house had plenty of space and all the amenities you would need.

As you’d expect from a older farmhouse, it wasn’t the cleanest, most modern place. As others mentioned, the bug-zooka was a big hit and a good way to deal with the plentiful stink bugs.

If your focus is on spending time in Luray and Shenandoah, the location is great. If you want to spend time in DC, it’s a little too far for my taste. We split time between the two and it worked out just fine.

Ok but dirty

  • 1 of 5

First, once you turn off the main road to the right, just take your first left and go to the end of the road. We were allowed early access by an hour or so, which was gracious. It was very cold inside , so we lit the fireplace in the L/R because there were no instructions as far as heat otherwise. We did see heaters in each bedroom and figured that out. A couple hours later the owner showed up with a comforter and admonished us for smoking on the porch. Granted, we had the B/R door open that led to the porch so we could charge bluetooth, and we closed that when she mentioned it. We had not thought about it in the wide open space, but ok. The owner went on and on about smoke in her house and that she was going to post no smoking signs all over the porch so no one can smoke there anymore. That should not have been an issue since smoking outside was ok according to the listing. We were all made to feel uncomfortable immediatly. As I walked inside with her she asked me why I had the L/R fireplace on while we were outside. I told her because it was freezing inside. She immediatly turned the fireplace off, told me it was ornamental only and tried to start a heater in the kitchen. That never worked, although she did try to get someone out. I saw her turn the fireplace back on and then off again before she left. I had to sleep in the L/R on the futon and it was really cold. The place is also dirty. The toilet may be clean, because it's up to you to clean it and everything else, but when there is bird**** on the inside of the windows, that's just nasty. Old fake plants with layers of dust, filthy windows and doors, scum on dishes and glasses. Great views of the mountains, can't really see the river, but easy walk. You can make do anywhere, but for the money, I'd rather spend the extra and not be cheaped out.

Beautiful start to fall.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The view was amazing, and for the first time ever we felt comfortable letting our city dogs run off their leashes. It was a cozy, rainy mini-break.

Owner's Response: So glad you and your pups had fun! We love the rain on that tin roof! Have a wonderful rest of the Fall.
