From the Mayor:

It is our belief that Stanley offers “the best of both worlds.” Located in the Shenandoah Valley in the beautiful Page Valley of Virginia, you will find a nature lover’s paradise. Whether it’s the tempting cool waters of the Shenandoah River, the breathtaking view of our surrounding caverns, or the panoramic beauty of a mountain overlook on the Skyline Drive, we guarantee you will be well pleased with our area. We believe that you will agree with us, when we tell you we prefer to remain hidden yet easily located here in the valley.


If it’s a more fast-paced activity you are seeking, you will find the Washington D.C. metropolitan area is less than two hours away. We believe this allows you to take advantage of whatever you desire from our Nation’s Capitol and it’s multitude of activities, yet still be refreshed by quiet, peaceful porch-rocking valley evenings on your return from the city.


You will find our community to be clean and our people friendly. You will not be able to locate any major hotel or motel chains in the community, but we have an ample supply of local inns, cabins and bed & breakfasts that allow us to maintain our quaintness.  Best of both worlds? Ya’ll come see for yourselves. We think you’ll agree.


See ya on the porch!



Douglas L. Purdham

Mayor, Town of Stanley
