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

Woodside Cabins is family owned and operated. Olga and I have been in the vacation cabin business for 20 years and take great pride in our properties. I grew up in the area and we both have a deep love and appreciation for the Blue Ridge Mountains and our beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

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.”.

What makes this cabin unique

The view from Sundance cannot be beat. Whether you are soaking in the hot tub, making a meal in the kitchen or waking up in the bedroom, the view is always there for you. In addition, the walk to the river takes you along a path through the fields where the mountains and the natural world surround you. You have to walk slowly to take it all in.

Absolutely amazing! We loved the views, hot tub and gas fireplace!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Sundance for the weekend to celebrate my wife’s birthday and she loved everything about it! The house is perfect for a romantic getaway with spectacular views of mountains, the Shenandoah Valley, and river (all of which can be seen from the deck and hot tub). The surrounding property is huge which leads to the river where there is a picnic table, fire pit and charcoal grill. There is also a grill on the deck and a closer fire pit in the backyard. We also enjoyed the gas fireplace inside the cabin as well as the kitchen, which had everything we needed to prepre and enjoy meals. We definitely plan on returning in the future!

Truly spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sundance was truly spectacular. The view is amazing. If you need a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city this is where you want to be! We often stopped in Luray for food on our way to or from Shenandoah National Park, so the distance to the park entrance is no problem. Derek is a true superhost. As other people said, the cookies upon arrival are a nice touch. We came with our EV and Derek allowed us to charge our car (and even provided us with an extension cord). Communication was incredibly easy throughout. We will definitely be back.

You can't go wrong. Absolutely beautiful cabin and close to great wineries, breweries, skyline drive, shenendoah river, and more. The view from the hot tub is incredible. The cabin is impeccable and has everything you might need.

Great property, private, quiet, wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here for a birthday weekend. The cabin is in a great location, easy to get to but still feels private and isolated. The view of the mountains is wonderful. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit down by the river. Everything worked great and we had no problems. Nearby Luray is a cute town and we went on a distillery tour, visited a brewery and had a nice dinner at the Speakeasy. Highly recommend!
