Our property is smallish by many standards (just 3.5 acres) and it is flat and has just a few clusters of trees so our house will pretty much be in view no matter where you park. We do have a septic system so you'll have to avoid traveling over certain areas as to not damage it. We have a pool that guests can use, and it has an outdoor kitchen (with a grill, refrigerator, and ice machine) There is also a pool house with electricity and a fan, lawn chess, and bocce court. There are also several outdoor seating areas you can make use of - plenty around the pool including a covered porch with a hammock as well as a pool house electricity. There is also a covered sitting area off to the side of the main house as well as an extensive porch which has great views in the mornings and evenings. Suggested Local Attractions:Luray Caverns Shenandoah National Park Skyline Drive Shenandoah River (tubing, kayaking, and canoeing)

Be respectful, and keep the noise reasonable for ourselves and our neighbors. The property is fenced, but depending on the size of the dog they may be able to crawl underneath the lowest board, so you may have to leash it if it tends to roam. We prefer couples rather than families with children, but we aren't 100% ruling out families. No generator use, please. Morning hours (anytime before noon) should be quiet times as I write then and too much noise can be distracting.
Access Road Conditions: We are directly off a paved state-maintained road, but we do have a gate and I'm not 100% sure what size camper will be able to maneuver through it. Once we have some visitors we'll keep track of what can and what cannot make it. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: We have extra parking space on our driveway or people can park on the grass

Author and adventurer Details: My name is Michael J. Sullivan, and I'm a New York Times and USA Today bestselling fiction author. My best-known works are The Riyria Revelations and Legends of the First Empire. Because I can write just about anywhere, the mobile lifestyle is attractive to me, so my wife and I just bought a Jeep and a teardrop trailer. While campgrounds are fine, we prefer to be in wide-open spaces with great views and just a few people. We will pick up our [email protected] 320 CS-S at the end of February and we are hoping for a big trip west to see some of the amazing national parks. Our main home (where we offering to host people) is in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in Luray, which has excellent caverns. It's not overly big (just 3.5 acres) but it is flat and we have a pool, pool house, and outdoor kitchen that people are welcome to use when they visit. Home Town: Luray Virginia. My wife designed and we built a log cabin. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We are picking up our teardrop in a few weeks so we've not gone anywhere yet. Skills or Expertise to Share: For any aspiring authors out there, I can share with you some tips of the trade. My wife and business manager is a publishing expert and loves helping fellow authors navigate the difficult world that is publishing. I enjoy birding although I'm fairly new to this pastime bu I really enjoy it, and we often travel to places where birds migrate.

Nice place to stay for a couple nights in early January. Nice view of the Shenandoahs. Was offered electrical hook-up. Grassy, level site next to garage. Great open area for my dog to chase her ball. Relaxing stay after busy holidays.

We got in late (well after dark) after a very long day of driving from Atlanta. Michael was very gracious in telling us where to park and offering up an extension cord to preserve our battery. And then we just crashed hard until it was light enough to see what a pretty place this is. Wish we could have stayed longer, but the itinerary beckoned.

great location overlooking Shenandoah mountains. The host is very hospitable and allowed me access to the backyard pool kitchen area and pool cabana, although I didn’t take advantage it’s a great touch. ￼the parking spot was good and didn’t take too much to get level. AT&T service was almost nothing and 2 bars boosted. I’d definitely recommend a stay here!
