Thoughts from Jill, a gifted guest and new friend to Piney Hill.
Nestled amid a rolling valley
near the modest town of Luray
You’ll find a peaceful charming place
to rest and get away!
Where mountains adorn horizons
and life is rural still
The hospitality is remarkable,
the haven is “PINEY HILL”
I wonder how many old souls,
farmers of the land
Looked upon these mountainous visions,
standing where I stand.
“My honey and I take little weekend getaways several times a year to refresh. This was our first time staying in the Luray area. I found Piney Hill – and Hank & Wiley – on one of the B&B websites and was blown away by the home just from their website. Upon arrival, the place, the house, the room, the innkeepers, the setting exceeded my expectations 100 fold. Every detail was so carefully executed – so much time and attention, not to mention the obvious passion and joie de vive for their home and guests. From dinner reservations, to conversation, to the spectacularly appointed room, to the breakfast presentation (oh my goodness, go for this reason alone!), Hank and Wiley were superb. For us, having genuine, kind, warm folks provide so much hospitality was the highlight of our trip. This wonderful home is just minutes from the quaint town of Luray, but also close to the other activities on our itinerary: Horseback riding, Shenandoah Caverns, wineries, antiques, and the Meems Covered Bridge to name a few. We left with more than a weekend of memories, and we will return to see our new friends soon!”
“My partner and I traveled to Luray to get married and spend a few romantic nights at Piney Hill. I am not a B&B expert, but I can’t imagine having a more beautiful setting, hospitable innkeepers, or tastier breakfast at another. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful night away with fantastic views and easy access (close driving distance) to the mountains, I would recommend it with many stars. (If you have pet allergies, don’t worry about the place because no pets are allowed–I have a serious cat allergy and I had no issues.)”
“Hank and Wiley’s hospitality comes naturally. We stayed in their Rosebud Cottage. The cottage has all you need and you still have access to both the hot tub (right outside: between the house and cottage) and inside the house (so you can check out their great dvd selection). For breakfast, they bring you a nice picnic basket with your hot breakfast (including coffee and juice). The cottage has great backside views of the mountains, and a nice screened in front porch. The bed is comfortable, the fireplace adds a nice touch, and the decor of the place is cheerful. You feel special being there.”
“I’m sure the rest of the place is just as nice as the cottage because the cottage, the common areas in the house, and the land is so well taken care of. As well, checking out nearby scenes is easy because the hosts will help you figure out an adventure that fits you. They gave us a wonderful trail map (Old Rag Mt.) and a great idea for dinner (Artisan’s Grill) in Luray. We will most definitely be returning to Piney Hill! I can’t say enough about how great this place and its’ hosts are. I loved Piney Hill and you will, too.”
“My husband and I have been visiting Piney Hill twice a year since 2001. We enjoy visiting in the spring and for our anniversary in the Fall. On our first visit to this charming country bed and breakfast we were immediately impressed by the warm and homey feel from the moment we walked through the front door. This was topped off by the graciousness of the hosts and our friends; Hank & Wiley. That feeling has never changed, it’s like coming home.”
“When lounging around the grounds we enjoy gazing at the mountain views from the rockers onRelax on our porch with our magnificent mountain views the front porch, under the willow tree in the back garden area or from the outdoor Jacuzzi. They also have an extensive video collection which we take advantage of to wind down with in the late evening. There is so much to do and see in and around the Luray area. We like to just jump in the car and see where the wind blows us. Since we’ve been coming out for the past 6 years; besides doing all of the local attractions and area wineries, we have also ventured out to Monticello, Natural Bridge and the Charlestown horse races and slots as the B & B is centrally located. We also enjoy antique shopping in the area. Don’t forget to check out Hank & Wiley’s gift shop that they opened last year. I’ve found a treasure or two.”
“I definitely have to say that when they advertise as an relaxing, adventure or romantic get-away that hit the nail on the head. They allow you to do as much or as little as you want to do and are always happy to offer advice. I’m impressed with the way they know when you want something or when you need some alone time. We will continue to visit Piney Hill, our old friends and the Luray area. It is truly our home away from home. Did I mention we’ve stayed in every room!”
“Thank you for a wonderful relaxing week. This has truly been our greatest B & B experience ever. All stemming from your willingness to make us feel “at home”. The house, grounds and food is amazing. Thank you for the directions and planning our get-away. In our book you are top notch!”
“Many thanks for a wonderful stay. You have a real treasure here. It is an oasis of quiet and a refuge from the bustle of the outside world. Any guests will come away totally refreshed.”
“Its not often that one finds a little piece of heaven in this world, but you have surely found it! Many thanks for all the hospitality and fantastic food.”
“What warm hospitality greeted us on our first trip to Virginia. The Inn has such a wonderful ambiance, your services were impeccable and the food delicious… we will be back!”
“This is perhaps the first b&b I have been to, that felt like a visit with friends. The hosts went out of their way to make sure our group had resources for entertainment, fantastic breakfast, and hospitality like no other. This is a true get away. PERFECT and ideal vision of a bed and breakfast. Thank you for an enjoyable time. I will return and recommend to friends.”
“We just got back from a visit at Piney Hill B&B for my husband’s birthday and the place exceeded my expectations. I found the place on the Internet and it turned out to be such a fun, relaxing weekend. The decor is beautiful, the innkeepers are so inviting and hospitable and the breakfast is out of this world. We will definitely become repeat customers. Highly recommended! The best B&B we’ve been to yet!”
“We visited Piney Hill for my girlfriends birthday. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! Both Hank and Wiley were so inviting. I had wanted to do something very special for my girlfriend and Piney Hill helped make that happen! I got the “Romance Package” and was very pleased with the room, the flowers, the treats, the warm hospitality, the hot tub, the country breakfast, and pretty much everything! I will definitely be coming back with my girlfriend and will definitely recommend Piney Hill to anyone and everyone!”
“I just came back from another relaxing weekend at the Piney Hill B&B. It is truly one of the most relaxing places on Earth. I am the Membership Director and meeting planner for a non-profit in Washington, DC. I spend much of my time traveling to meetings and conferences across the country. This is the place where I go to unwind, relax, engage in great conversation and enjoy some of the best breakfasts prepared by the inn keepers, Hank and Wiley.
“These guys truly made me feel like I was at home. The inn provides great country charm and incredible views of the Shenandoah Valley. The room I and a friend stayed in was spacious and extremely comfortable. They give great directions and recommendations to different restaurants and wineries. This really makes life easier when you are “directions challenged. I really can’t say enough. I can’t wait until the next time I visit Piney Hill. THANKS GUYS!”
