Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hello, my name is Brenda and my husband’s name is Mike. Welcome to Peaceful Properties--Your choice for a green and serene stay. My husband and I are retired Army officers serving for 24 and 30 years respectively. We both love this area and plan to make it our permanent home in the near future. There is no other place in the area that has the benefits of viewing both mountain ranges; the Massanutten on the west and the Shenandoah on the east with the South Fork of the beautiful and peaceful Shenandoah River running between these green mountains. An awesome sight when you see eagles or osprey flying high, deer and turkeys running through the woods, and an occasional bear to remind you that you are in Page County and the Luray area. We hope you enjoy your stay at Peaceful Properties. It is a magnificently beautiful area especially on a clear night with the stars you cannot see nearer the cities.

Why the Owner Chose Rileyville, VA, USA:
When we purchased this home it was marketed as an "average" view. My husband immediately saw the potential beautiful view off the large deck. After clearing the overgrowth and some of the trash trees which we used in the fire pit and fireplace, we saw an outstanding, magnificent view. My favorite bird, the pileated woodpecker which looks just like "Woody the Woodpecker" inhabits the surrounding forests. We have the best of both worlds--mountains and river. We love this area so much that we are building a home in the neighborhood. I think you will enjoy it also.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Brown Bear Retreat is your perfect haven, a spacious and comfortable home to base out of or just relax in place. Set on a ridge overlooking the Massanutten range with a beautiful 15 mile view. The river whispers and shadows play over the mountains, birds flitter, hummingbirds spar and eagles soar as you wind down on the large, full length deck overlooking the 9 acres of this beautiful property. Enjoy the same mountain views from the Sundance Maxxus Spa.
