A Perfect INN with Perfect Hosts

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 1, 2007

I'm happy to join everyone else in singing the praises of Piney Hill and its hosts, Wiley and Hank. The inn is beautiful, the location is spectacular, the breakfasts are delicious, and the hosts are like old friends. We stayed for 3 nights and could easily have made it 3 weeks. They'll help you plan everything from trips to the park to vineyard tours to dinner out. Not only do the hosts have an amazing attention to detail, they welcome people into their home as if they've known them for years. There was a huge storm on our second night and the power was out until the following morning. Hank and Wiley went to great lengths to make sure the guests were comfortable and managed to pull off one of the best breakfasts of our stay following a night of very little sleep and no power. Truly remarkable. We had a fantastic time at Piney Hill and we will absolutely be back.

Unique Quality: Great country location, minutes from town, very personable Innkeepers, delicious breakfasts.

Directions: Beautiful country setting in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia

I knew we were on to something when I found this hidden treasure during a web search for a B & B near Luray, VA, where I wanted to go to see the Caverns. The reviews listed were, without exception, highly favorable of Piney Hill. When I called to make the reservation, Wiley answered the phone. He gave me all the information I requested, asked me if my wife or I had any dietary restrictions, and then e-mailed directions to show me the easiest way to get there. We arrived that evening at around 7:00PM to find ourselves on the front steps of a wonderful, restored, 1800's farmhouse. Piney Hill sits right in the center of a rolling Shenandoah valley landscape with great mountain views in all directions. If I had only one word with which to describe this delightful place, that word would be "Peace". Wiley and Hank, consumate innkeepers that they are, greeted us like old friends. The accomodations are immaculate, fitted out with an eclectic mix of antiques in a soothing color scheme. Our room, the Walter Rogers, offered us a most comfortable bed, private bath and mood fireplace. Certainly all the elements are present for a most romantic evening if one is in that frame of mind! The bathroom has plenty of fluffy towels, soaps and shampoos, terry bathrobes...everything to make your stay here pleasant. Both Hank and Wiley have the knack, developed over the 9 years that they have been in business, I guess, of knowing what a guest needs. If you want to sit around and talk, one of them will be right there with an engaging story. If you would like some privacy and quiet, they seemingly fade away. My wife and I were delighted talking with both of them, hearing about how they found the farm, restored the place ("the front porch was literally collapsing...") and found themselves running a B & B. You will not go wrong by choosing to stay at Piney Hill...and when you leave you will probably, as we did, have made two new friends...Wiley and Hank.

Unique Quality: Views are terrific from almost any spot in the 2 acre yard. There's a hot tub in the back yard, garden paths and statuary, and rocking chairs on the roofed front porch. Traffic on the road in front is nil, so it's a good place to walk, jog or ride a bike. Wiley and Hank have a shelf full of all kinds of movies you can watch in your room. Ask Wiley to see his collections of a) pottery mixing bowls b) creamers c) roosters (he gave up the platters and clocks!). But the real key to this place are the Innkeepers, Wiley and Hank. It is obvious that they love their livelihood, and it shows up in every element of Piney Hill. The grounds are full of beautiful plantings, among which their 4 cats roam and play (Wiley advised me that although they think they can come into the house, they are not allowed). A wooden deck, shaded by a vast willow tree, is a great place to have a glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning. By the way, these guys know how to make a good cup of coffee-no weak, watered down stuff here! For breakfast, besides fruit, fresh orange juice and a nice home-made muffin, Hank came in with an egg casserole worthy of a five star Michelin hotel! Luray and the caverns are close by...don't pass them up. Luray has a lot of antique stores, and the Artisan Cafe is worth the stop for lunch or dinner; they have a killer cheeseburger!

Directions: Call Wiley, and he'll tell you or e-mail you concise directions.

We are staying in the Emma Ruffner Rogers Room.

Unique Quality: Piney Hill Bed & Breakfast is a 1750's farmhouse nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley of Luray, Virginia. The home is surrounded by rolling hills of farmland and mountain views as far as the eye can see! The wrap around porch, lined with rockers allows you to kick back, relax and enjoy.

Directions: Near Skyline Drive and minutes from the Luray Caverns
