Leesburg house description
PLEASE NOTE: Less than a 3 night inquiry will not take priority until 45 days from requested arrival date.
This log house was completed in 2005 and when you first walk in, it still smells like the pine wood it was made from. It is located on 15 peaceful, wooded acres, overlooks over 850 acres of additional farm land with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance; the property does border both Hamilton and Leesburg for convenience, each about 5 minutes away.
'Windridge' is furnished with family antiques and artwork but has all the modern conveniences for your complete comfort as well. It has a combined living/dining/kitchen area with a huge fireplace. Off this central area is a separate den and screen porch which both have closing doors for privacy. The master bedroom has a king bed and it's own private bath on the first floor; with all of it's windows it feels like you're in a tree house! There are two additional bedrooms upstairs, one with 2 twins and the other with a queen bed.
This house is located in the country, but Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD are a reasonable day trip from here. Within a shorter drive is the Leesburg Corner Outlet with great, popular discount stores, many historical buildings, Civil War attractions, wineries and many parks are all also very popular year round.

This house worked perfectly for our friends as we gathered for the wedding. The kitchen and appliances were great. We were able to cook breakfast and prepare picnic lunches for the day. We had our morning coffee and afternoon cocktails on the screened in porch. It was so peaceful. The beds were very comfortable. The remote location provided much peace and quiet. However it was so easy to get to the museums in DC as well as to several of the civil war sites. We highly recommend.

Owner response: Thank you for your review and for appreciating what Windridge and the close surroundings have to offer. Please let us know if you are in the area again; we offer a discount to returning guests!
I stayed at this home with 5 other women for my cousin's bachelorette weekend. Our plan was to visit wineries during the day on Saturday, and have a relaxing "getaway" in honor of the bride. This house could not have been more perfect - the pictures don't do it justice! It is a gorgeous, spacious home with all of the charm and character that we were looking for. The outside screened-in deck was where we spent most of our time, and it was such a relaxing and refreshing weekend for all of us.We truly cannot wait to go back!

Windridge, WOW what a place to stay
Windridge, WOW what a place to stay
Wow what a place to stay, rustic, secluded, and beatiful inside and out. A perfect place for any body to stay, but absolutey perfect for any family. Windrige is a spacious log home that we found on our arrival to be clean and well furnished. Our families reason for staying at Windridge was family vacation and being able to sight see from there. While we were there we traveled to sites that were all within about an hour from Windridge, Washington DC., Gettysburg, Mount Vernon, and Arlington. There are so many sights within close proximity to Windridge that a week just wasn't enough time to see them all. If ever we return to the east coast Windridge is at the top of any list for places to stay. Our evenings and mornings were spent enjoying the peacefulness of Windrige. The screened in back deck was like an outdoor living room and from there you could enjoy the deer and squirrels that frequently were in the back yard. Our family highly recommends Windridge to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Northern Virginia area. The real thing was far exceeded by the pictures.

Owner response: So glad your whole family enjoyed themselves at Windridge and all the wonderful historic sites in the area! Too often guests complain about not having enough time to see it all, but I think a week seemed perfect for you all, with even time to relax at your 'home-away-from-home'. Hope you come back and take advantage of our Returning Guest discount! Thank you for your consideration of Windridge and a lovely review.
Loved our stay!
Loved our stay!
My family and I absolutely loved our week-long stay at Windridge. It was our home base for a week as we explored Civil War battlefields and visited Washington D.C. The house itself is gorgeous both inside and out, and is tucked away in an idyllic, quiet spot in the woods. The owner was an absolute delight to work with and was very accommodating and helpful through the whole process of inquiring about the home, making our reservation, and during our stay. Our family of 5 adults fit very comfortably in the this spacious house. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots & pans, and other necessities so that after a quick trip to the grocery store we were able to cook all our own meals for the week. The air conditioning worked well, for which we were all very grateful! We all agreed that we will definitely want to stay here again the next time we are in the area. We all felt so at home at Windridge.

Windridge was perfect in every way! From its fantastic natural setting, to its awesome architecture, to the décor and amenities, it proved to be much more than we had expected. Further considering that it’s a rental, we didn’t anticipate that it would feel like a home, but it does! The home was very clean, very comfortable and enjoyable in every way. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, very sincere, caring and available throughout the entire process that began over 6 months ago. Windridge is close to some of Loudoun County’s finest Wineries, one within walking distance, and within day trips to some of the major battle sites of the Civil War. It’s within close proximity to very good restaurants such as Lightfoot & Tuscarora Mill in Leesburg, as well as Lowry’s Crab Shack & The Beautiful South in Hamilton & Magnolias in Purcellville.

Perfect Weekend Getaway
Perfect Weekend Getaway
My family and I rented this house to do a little getaway for the weekend. We wanted to do a wine tour for my sister's birthday. This house was perfect! Very clean and spacious. Kitchen had everything we needed. Fireplace was perfect for the cooler nights. The house is set back off main roads so lots of privacy and beautiful property. Very close to numerous wineries. Only issue we had was not staying longer!!

This past July (2012) my sibblings and I reached out to Kaki 8 days before we were to travel to attend a family funeral. It was (is) a difficult time. Working with Kaki was easy, enjoyable and Windridge her log cabin style home was a sanctuary to come back to after challenging days and emotional trials. Thank you Kaki for opening your home for us to rent. It was absolutely perfect!

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely home for a week in June. We have rented numerous times from VRBO and this exceeded our expectations! The property is private and serene and the house is beautiful and welcoming. The owners went out of there way to create a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend this property.

A group of us came from Northern California for a National Senior Event last October. We can't say enough good things about the house. The location was secluded yet close to everything. We enjoyed our stay and just found out that the tournament is coming back this year (2012) and will be reserving the house again. Can't wait to stay again!!

The best out of three
The best out of three
As we planned a trip with the family to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary we wanted to visit Washington DC and we did not want to stay in a hotel every night. Through the web we came across the house in Leesburg, just about 45 minutes outside the nation’s capital. From the start the contact with the owner was pleasant, nice and helpful. The information given matched with what we rented so there were no surprises. Sorry I have to correct myself here as the house exceeded our expectations so that was a surprise. The house was clean, in a beautiful area. There were deer in front of the house about every single day and on the last day we even counted 11 deer in the back. The porch was nice and so was the weather. The kids loved the pool table; the kitchen has everything you need, the master bedroom was romantic. Although we felt that we were in the middle of nowhere, as there is no direct contact with the neighbors it felt very relaxing. You need a car but the drive to the main road is less than 5 minutes away. What struck us most was that we could see that the owners have taken great care in maintaining the house in a nice and comfortable home. We felt at home as soon we entered it. So, if you want to spent a few days in a wooded area with some wildlife not so far from the nation’s capital we strongly recommend this beautiful house. We rented 3 houses during our trip this year and this house was, by far, the best we had. Will we come back you may want to ask? If we plan another trip to the same area we most definitely consider renting this house again. We did not regret it so we hope that future tenants have the same experience.

Owner response: Wow, "K" family, Windridge was the best of 3; that's as great to know as it was to have you and your family stay at our log house! You treated it as if it were your own and we are deeply appreciative. So glad you enjoyed this area and hope you will continue to hold dear this memorable and adventurous vacation. With fond regards to your whole family, Kaki
