About Andrea

My mother moved to the Shenandoah Valley in 1969 with 3 children and 1 one the way. I was the one on the way. In the fall of 1970, My Uncle Joe, Aunt Jackie and my mother, Nancy, began Shenandoah River Outfitters with two old aluminum canoes and a dream.

I started Mountain Whisper Cabins in 2005 after purchasing the cabin I grew up in and settling back into the Valley.

Andrea purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Andrea chose Shenandoah Valley

The Falling Leaf was added to my cabin business in 2009. My, Uncle Joe, wrote, “[Shenandoah] I dipped my paddle in your life and you refreshed me.” The valley is a place to fill your soul in all the seasons, and I would like to share it with you.

What makes this cabin unique

The Falling Leaf log cabin has beautiful views, wood burning fireplace and is nestled within walking distance to the Legendary Shenandoah River.

Sweet little getaway

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this cute little cabin and had a wonderful weekend lazing in front of the fireplace, soaking in the hot tub, and waking up to the natural light streaming in from the skylights. Looking forward to returning.

Exceeded expectations !

  • 5 of 5

You'll find everything you need for a fun and peaceful getaway at The Falling Leaf cabin. We felt the comforts of home in the cozy family room, well stocked kitchen and clean, updated bathrooms. Our favorite spots were outside, building long lasting fires in the fire pit and grilling on the BBQ, then enjoying dinner al fresco on the outdoor picnic table. The crisp night air was a perfect invitation to soak in the hot tub, on a deck under the stars. The location allowed us to see so many local attractions, each under 25 minutes away, including grocery markets and restaurants. You can tell by how nicely this home is kept that the owners are very proud of this lovely property. We are so glad we chose The Falling Leaf and are grateful for such a wonderful experience.

sweetest little cabin

  • 5 of 5

We celebrate our anniversary in a cabin every year. This year, our 20th, was perfect in this sweet little cabin.

Let me start with the "above and beyond" ... someone had left the tarp off the firewood pile so the wood was soaked. Andrea brought us dry firewood from her home!



Finally an uncluttered cabin free of knickknacks.

One of the nicest cabin kitchens we've encountered.

Well stocked with matching items (that really resonated with this neat freak).

Insulated carafe coffee pot was wonderful for leisurely mornings.

Covered deck and clean/splinter free two person rocking chair! We nearly lived out there. With the down throw we brought we even enjoyed coffee out there each morning.

Super easy to get to from DC metro area.

Bedroom loft upstairs had enough space to put up our large portable camping kennel for our greyhound to sleep in. For those with small children, a pack n' play would fit well.

Nighttime is NIGHTTIME! No city lights seeping into the bedroom. Dark dark...wonderful sleep.

Being able to hear the river from the bedroom while we drifted off!

We aren't hot tub people, but the hot tub looked clean, hot and steamy when we peaked under the cover.

We didn't use the downstairs, but a lovely additional bed and bath down there.

We assumed it would be "cabin cold" at night, but this cabin has Mitubshi Electric heat/AC units that REALLY heat up the cabin. We didn't use them much as we prefer cooler temps, but boy even setting at 58 at night had us toasty when we came down for coffee.

The most refreshing COLDEST tap water!


Not as secluded as we had hoped, but we'd stay here again for sure.

The yard is quite muddy (Winter). Our greyhound wears boots when he goes outside so he doesn't bring in dirt at home, but since most dogs don't, we'd highly recommend dog owners bring baby wipes and ready all humans to kick off boots on the porch.

Don't venture out for a walk up the road to the right out the driveway. We were charged by a large snarling dog, from the last house at the end of the road and told the road was "private" property.

Water goes "off completely" when you first start to use bathroom or kitchen sink; don't panic, it comes back on in less than a minute.
