                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: We enjoy gardening, antiquing, travelling, music and the outdoors. We have travelled through the British Isles, Europe, the American West, Canada and Mexico but now are content to share our place with other travelers.

                  Why the Owner Chose Harrisonburg:
                  It would be hard to find a better location for a vacation rental. For historians, we are in the heart of colonial America and a comfortable drive to the Nation's Capital in Washington, DC. Another direction will take you to the beautiful Atlantic Beaches for a quick overnite stay or a long day's outing. Naturalists will enjoy pristine mountain streams known for exceptional trout fishing, or expansive National forests with mountain lakes. This property is well suited for people who wish to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings of the Valley and mountains, as well as those who wish to visit the myriad of attractions nearby or within short driving distance. It is a perfect place for photographers, artists, musicans, birdwatchers, writers or those simply seeking rest and relaxation. The four distinctive seasons lend themselves uniquely to a vacation anytime of the year. This is a family friendly home with safe outside play areas for children. Our farm menagerie includes donkeys, sheep, cattle, and beautiful laying hens who lay colorful eggs - including green and blue! Our family pets include friendly dogs and cats and two retired ponies. Our guests can enjoy the bounty of our family garden while they are here as well as fresh eggs if they like.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Two of the most strking benefits of staying here are the magnificent morning vistas of the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains. Often the morning mist outlines the layers of mountain tops that cause you to pause, and often get your camera! Equally as beautiful, are the spectacular starry skies that are displayed on clear, cool nights. With no light polution from urban areas, the starry skies are a sight to behold!
