Warm Springs house description

The Tannery was built ca. 1820 on Old Germantown Road, an historic central byway, which in its heyday was an important part of revolutionary Virginia and used for the exploration of the then western frontier. Constructed with handmade brick and heart pine beams, The Tannery was initially a blacksmith shop, a tannery and a relay station for riders to obtain fresh horses.

In 1997, The Tannery was updated, remodeled and furnished with antiques. Large double back porches overlook two streams, a lovely treed half acre and the Alleghany Mountains. The Warm Springs Stream flows through the rear of the property, with warm mineral water around 90 degrees. There is a small pool and waterfall for a unique soaking experience day or night. To the front and side of the house, a cold artisan spring supplies The Tannery with the purest water and then trickles through watercress to meet the Warm Springs Stream.


Within walking distance, Warm Springs village is a charming step back into time. The village is 5 miles north of the historic Homestead Hotel. Wonderful restaurants are abundant including Saturday night dinners at the music conservatory of Garth Newell. The area is also surrounded by State and National Park land with plenty of out door activities. Or just relax on the main porch of The Tannery: read, bird watch, or nap in the hammock. The Tannery is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or an activity filled weekend. Come enjoy the beautiful mountains of Virginia.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Since The Tannery is surrounded by geothermal springs, one must take a dip in the Jefferson Pools. There is plenty of wonderful hiking along the Warm Springs mountain ridge as well as in Hidden Valley along the Jackson River. After a full day of outdoor activities, stroll down to the Simon Kenton Pub and Waterwheel Restaurant or to the Warm Springs Inn restaurant. If driving, the choices are many. And don't forget Garth Newel for those musically inclined. There are many concerts and festivals during the summer/fall.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: Jack and Mimi have owned The Tannery since they were married. They were actually married at The Tannery. They split their time between Colorado and the two Virginias. They love being in Warm Springs when they are able to. The history, the waters and the natural beauty of Bath County have always been close to their hearts. Their guests love it as much as they do.

                      Why the Owner Chose Warm Springs:
                      This area of Virginia is stunningly beautiful. The village of Warm Springs has always been a haven for vacationers. Since the early 1700's people have come to 'take the waters', hunt, fish and enjoy the mountains. The area is also the home of the world famous Homestead and Greenbrier Resort Hotels.
