“Perfect Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

The bed and breakfast is a close 2 hour drive out of the Northern Va area and is the perfect way to escape the pace of the area out into a calm countryside. The drive was great and had many sights to see along the way. I imagine during the spring, summer or even better the fall the colors of the surrounding nature must look incredible.

My partner and I were only able to stay just the one night but we will definitely be retuning. The location was very easy to find aside from my iPhone deciding it would be a fun idea to take me down a few random back roads. The bed and breakfast is tucked into the countryside but only a good 10min from Main Street of which you can find shops, restaurants and trail to walk/bike. Hank and Wiley (innkeepers) were great! Made us feel at home the minute we walked in. Hank took the time to let us get settled in and then told us all about the history of the home and surrounding sights/restaurants to check out.

After we settled in we spent some time just relaxing in the very comfortable cozy room we picked and enjoyed time away from hectic schedules of work and life back home. We went out to Main St. in the evening to get some dinner and returned home to sink ourselves out back in the outdoor jacuzzi. It was also perfect. Just what we needed. The temperature had dropped in the evening and there was a good breeze coming thru the area but even with that the jacuzzi was great!! And a perfect sight above with the sky covered in stars as there aren't any real lights around since it is out there in the countryside.

The next morning we awoke to coffee prepared for us and the most delicious breakfast I've had in awhile. It's not often we take the time to prepare a breakfast like that so it was nice to get pampered with a good ol' country breakfast. Wiley made some incredible peach French toast!

Overall like I said above it was a great visit and we were truly taken care of with great hospitality. Can't wait to go back!!

If you want the best home-cooked breakfasts, delicious home-baked goods, and great service all with amazing mountain views and adorable rooms, STAY HERE! If you don't want any of that, well, you're an idiot and you're wrong. So get over yourself and stay here. Hank and Wiley are literally the best innkeepers we've ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Love,

Web and Rachel

We met up with our best friends from PA at the Piney Hill B & B. Our stay was wonderful. Neither couple knew much about the area but within minutes of our arrival Hank and Wiley made us feel at home and provided us with lost of things "to do" in the area.
The B & B is lovely. It's clean, private and incredibly decorated with tons of antiques. It takes about 10 minutes to get into Luray from the B & B. And the food...to die for. Cookies upon our arrival, dessert on our beds in the evening and the breakfasts were truly wonderful.
We hope to return in the fall to see the autumn colors. Can't wait! Thanks again, Hank and Wiley for a lovely weekend!

As a Christmas gift to each other my boyfriend and I wanted to take a weekend trip out of the city and Piney Hill provided us with that perfect getaway. Not only is the B&B quaint and peaceful but the hosts, Hank and Wiley, were fantastic. They immediately made us feel at home and genuinely cared how our days were. They provided a real breakfast each morning, no cereal or bagels but French toast, quiche, sticky buns (which were scrumptious!), yogurt parfait, sliced fruit and other foods. They are amazing cooks. The B&B is close to the Shenandoah mountains, wineries, Luray Caverns and great restaurants. We definitely became fans of this B&B and we're looking forward to returning again in the future.

This B and B is in rustic area outside Luray with lots of farmland and unspoiled views. I found the hosts very gracious but somewhat inflexible with regards to food. As a lifelong weight watcher, I was keen to go on long hikes and eat healthy food. The hosts take pride, rightfully so, in their sumptuous breakfasts. Everything is very high in sugar and fat: a typical breakfast contained granola yogurt parfait, banana bread and pumpkin cream cheese French toast. When I asked for some egg whites on the side, I got a funny look and was basically told "no". The rooms are smallish, and one has a bathroom that requires crossing a public stairway. That said, this is a lovely location, and if you don't mind unhealthful food, it's a great place. Personally I'd prefer plainer dietary options. Because I was limited in what I ate, I had to go out for a second breakfast so I could make it on long hikes.

Our complimentary breakfasts have been raved about from all of our previous guests as one can read in other comments. We actually told the guest the breakfast menu when asked the night before. At that time, we offered to prepare this guest boiled eggs, oatmeal and fruit. The guest declined saying she would eat the pumpkin stuff french toast. While we were in the process of serving breakfast the next morning, the guest asked us to make egg whites. We cannot prepare special requests on demand, when asked at breakfast. We are not a restaurant. Our meals are planned in advance in consideration of all of our guest’s needs. We could not stop our breakfast service to others in order to make this special request.

The best description I can give to Piney Hill is "home." Hank and Wiley felt like old friends immediately as they helped us get settled. They gave excellent advice about the area and the food was delicious. I bought their cook book and have already tried a recipe from it; it was super-easy and turned out great! The house was cozy, and my husband and I felt very rejuvenated after our two-night getaway. I would definitely like to visit again as often as I can!

You can stop your search with the Piney Hill B&B. We did, and agree with the guests who thought it was an outstanding experience. We were the only guests the Sunday night before Thanksgiving. Wiley greeted us with a text message before we arrived. Hank met us at the door and volunteered some history about the house. We were shown menus for restaurants in town, made to feel right at home hopping into the hot tub overlooking pastures beside the house, sat ourselves down to a Scrabble game at the dining room table, and enjoyed a late night snack of homemade cake. We were thoughtfully given printouts of trail maps for the Shenandoah and, overall, thought the experience was as comfortable and relaxing as being invited to stay with friends.
