About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

“How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!”  ~John Muir

Welcome to Sundance! A cabin where these words are never more true. Sundance is located on 54 acres of riverfront property along the banks of the historic Shenandoah River and offers a sweeping western view of the Massanutten Mountains and some of the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see.

Built in October 2011, Sundance is a deluxe 1 bedroom cabin with an equal amount of indoor and outdoor living space. As soon as you arrive you will step into one of the most magnificent views offered in the Shenandoah Valley. Sundance offers a spacious living room with a gas log fireplace, flat screen (satellite) TV, DVD, High Speed Internet and Stereo. The kitchen is fully equipped and for dining you have the option of eating either inside or outside under the large 10’ x 40’ covered porch where you can enjoy nature at best. On the covered porch you will also find a 4 person Hot Tub that is open all year round. The bedroom has a queen bed, ceiling fan and a patio door where you can step out onto the covered porch and find the mountains in all directions. Both the living room and bedroom offer a 14 foot cathedral ceiling and all natural wood trim. Sundance was designed with the outdoors in mind. Wherever you move throughout the cabin you will never lose sight of the mountains that surround her.

A short 1/4 mile walk through the field will take you to the river where you can relax under the shade of the sycamore trees, dip your feet into the Shenandoah or have a relaxing evening around a fire. (The riverfront is solely for the use of our guests at Sundance and Walden, {VRBO#457061} Although Sundance and Walden share the riverfront, the two cabins are completely private from one anther.)

No matter where you come from, once you arrive at Sundance you will agree with the age old saying, “Nature never goes out of style”.

About Derek Goebel

My name is Derek Goebel. I have been in the vacation rental business since 1998. I have lived in the Shenandoah Valley for 42 years and would like to share her beauty with you.

Derek Goebel purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Derek Goebel chose Rileyville

Designed and built by Woodside Cabins, Sundance has been customized to benefit from its location by incorporating as much of the view into its setting as possible. With the outdoors in mind it has as much living space inside as outside. When you visit you will agree with Thoreau when he wrote,

“It is the marriage of the soul with Nature that makes the intellect fruitful, and gives birth to imagination.”.

Great place with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

A great getaway house. Quiet and beautiful view. The owner was so nice. He came to help us even on Christmas Day. We enjoyed everything in the house: the fireplace inside, hot tub, sound systems, kitchen filled with everything we needed,etc. The hot tub and the fireplace were definitely a plus during the cold weather. Sadly we couldn't see the stars at night. We would definitely want to come back again another time.

Very nice place with good view and jacuzzi on the porch.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and cabin. Only a couple issues, the curtains weren’t quite wide enough to cover the windows, and not all the windows even had curtains. This makes it hard to achieve privacy, but since the cabin is so secluded, it’s not much of an issue. Also it would help in the future to have more linens included as part of the rental (towels and sheets come to mind).

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your time at Sundance. We understand your concerns about the curtains. We do have curtains on all the doors and windows except the living room doors. As the side of the cabin facing the view is elevated and extremely private, we have not installed curtains on those two doors. This being said, we do wish for our guest to feel privacy when they are there and will look for larger curtains for the other windows. We do provide linens upon request. This includes sheets and towels for your stay. There is a $50 fee for this service as noted in our listing. We do supply blankets and pillows as we know these items are very cumbersome to pack. We take your comments very seriously and will make every effort to make sure your stay with us is a great one.

The 5 Star Decriptions are Spot On!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at Sundance over the Thanksgiving break. There were 4 of us all together as it was myself and my wife with our two younger teenage children.......We also brought along our german shorthaired pointer. Plenty of room for 4, even as we had a blow-up mattress so the kids didn't have to share the pull-out queen sofa.

The cabin is perfect. It was spotlessly clean, well maintained, and had all of the things needed to make our stay comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed too with plenty of cookware, plates, and utensils to make a full thanksgiving dinner.

The best part is the view and it is definitely a case where pictures do it no justice at all. Besides just sitting on the deck or in the hot tub, we went down to the river a couple of times a day to let our dog swim and venture up and down the riverfront. The fields between the cabin and the river were gorgeous too! Since we're a family that really enjoys hiking, we really have to recommend the 45 min drive to Old Rag mountain to do the rock scramble trail!!!!! It isn't for everyone but if you are reasonably fit and can handle a little bit of an adrenaline rush from simple climbing and heights, then you will be rewarded with views that rival those out west!

Derek is also the ideal owner for a renter as he gets back to you very quickly with any answers needed. Thanks for the cookies and accommodating our arrival was greatly appreciated!!

It was truly one of the best short family vacations we have ever had and have been all over the world together. We cant wait to come back and are looking to book it in a different season to see what its like in the area. We liked it so much we are interested in putting the area on our short list of places to have a vacation home.

Thanks again Derek! You have made something pretty special for everyone to enjoy.

Cheers, Justin, Missy, Sam, and Abby

The view from Sundance can’t be matched.

We enjoyed the walk to the river for fires.

Only suggestion would be a fire pit near the cabin as we like to cook on them.

Overall, clean, well-kept, and another relaxing stay at Woodside Cabins!
