Property description

Beautifully sited at the crest of Dulaney Mountain in scenic Madison County, Ragged Rock Ridge has one the most magnificent views in the area. Your first impression upon arriving will WOW your very senses, the expansive views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah National Park and the FT Valley below is spectacular. At the centerpiece of this spectacular view is Old Rag Mountain which has the deserved honor as the most popular mountain in Shenandoah National Park.

The cabin consists of a circa 1800s Chestnut log cabin, dismantled and erected atop the Ridge in 1997, and was expanded by adding a log home made from Western Hemlock logs. The cabin will sleep 8-10 comfortably, having 4 spacious bedrooms, and two baths. It is designed for an open floor plan affording space for a great room with large stone fireplace, dining area and charming kitchen with custom heart pine cabinets, above the kitchen and dining area is an open balcony. A full length porch runs across the front of the cabin for entertaining and enjoying the view.

There is a lovely stone patio, with stone fireplace, housing a lovely pergola, with cascading grape vines. Evenings are special at Ragged Rock Ridge sitting on the patio under the pergola watching the sun slowly set behind Old Rag Mountain, with a crackling fire in the fireplace, and glasses of red wine from our local vineyards, it just doesn’t get any better than this.

Upon entering the property there is a sense if serenity, the sound of mountain streams, wildlife and total privacy of the property leaves you feeling like you are truly on vacation and have left the worries of the world behind. The larger of the two ponds, with dock, is stocked with Large Mouth Bass, Sunfish, Bluegill and Catfish while the smaller pond, with its footbridge and cascading waterfall is stocked with Rainbow Trout.

A vast network of trails, through the magnificent hardwood forest, is located on the property’s 240 acres for hiking , mountain biking and horseback riding. Just a few minutes’ drive to the Appalachian Trail, Old Rag Mountain and White Oak Canyon. The land is a habitat for deer, bear, fox, turkeys, the occasional owl, and red tail hawk, and a bald eagle that has been known to frequent the pond. Centrally located Ragged Rock Ridge is within 30 minutes of Culpeper, Charlottesville, or Sperryville, where you can enjoy antiquing at Copper Fox Antiques or perhaps a tour of the Copper Fox Distillery, home of the famous Wasmunds Whiskey. (just tell Rick Audrey and Al sent you) Ragged Rock Ridge is centrally located to many local vineyards, Ducard, Rappahannock Cellars, Sharp Rock just to name a few.

For the avid sportsman there is hunting for deer and turkey through the hunting season, don’t forget to bring your pistols or shotguns and use the pistol range that has been set up for your enjoyment. There is also a skeet pull for the marksman in your family. If you have horses and would like to plan a trail riding vacation we have the very place for that, there is two fenced pastures with water access, two run in sheds, and wonderful trails to ride on. ( horses must be current on shots and coggins) Ragged Rock Ridge is truly nature’s paradise and has something for everyone.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We have enjoyed building a haven for ourselves for the past 10 years and would like to allow others to enjoy our retreat. We know how important getting away can be, and this is the perfect place to do just that.

Why the Owner Chose Etlan:
In 1997 the property was just a vision of sorts, a small clearing at the top of the mountain. Over time it has become a hideaway, back away from the hustle bustle of the big city, to a wonderland filled with nature. Our favorite times are just after a snow when a full moon lights the way for a midnight walk. This property remains quiet and peaceful no matter what is going on in other parts of the world.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We wanted a place that would be the perfect place to get away from it all, and with many years of doing one project after another we feel we have accomplished that desire. Ragged Rock Ridge has something for everyone, hikers, hunters, fisherman, it is a wonderful place to enjoy nature, come listen to the birds as they chirp their songs to wake you in the morning. Have breakfast on the porch and watch the humming birds as they fly from one feeder to the other. Look out over the mountain view and watch the valley below. Evenings are magical with spectacular sunsets as the sun slowly sinks behind Old Rag and the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance appear a deeper blue, or sometimes the fog sets over the sleepy village of Etlan in the mornings giving you the feeling you are in a far away and magiacal place. Come see for yourself we are certain you won't want to leave.
