Staying at Reddish Ridge was "rest for the soul"!
Staying at Reddish Ridge was "rest for the soul"!
Our family had an amazing time at Reddish Ridge! Harold, the homeowner takes great care to make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive and take a personal tour. He is readily available to work with family members who desire to ride the horses. The kitchen is well stocked with just about everything you need for preparing delicious meals to include spices and condiments. The home is well suited for large families and has something for all ages. There was so much to do on the property; from exploring the 45 acres surrounding the house on foot or horseback to relaxing in the hot tub under the beautiful sky; shooting a game of pool or darts to gazing at the rolling hills of the Virginia countryside; or just curling up with a good book in front of the fireplace. The home is located in the Shenandoah Valley within a short drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive, the Appalachian Trail, several vineyards, caverns, and Massanutten ski resort. (just to name a few) We also toured the town of Staunton and thoroughly enjoyed the rich history of the area. Thank you for a vacation that is well worth repeating!!

Wonderful Vacation Home
Wonderful Vacation Home
This was one of our top vacation rental homes, made that way because of the ammenities and location afforded to us at Reddish Ridge. The property lended itself to outdoor activity enjoyed by all of us. Ages from 13 to 50 equally appreciated the trails, horses, game room, comfortable family room and fireplace, and hot tub. House was large enough to provide privacy when needed and the living area and kitchen was large enough for two families to enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed to prepare a large Ham and all the sides. Harold was wonderful in helping us ride when we wanted and we will definetly make a trip back in the future.

A fantastic getaway! The birthday girl was properly celebrated, and we all enjoyed the opportunity to relax without the kiddos for a few days, including admiring the view of the mountains each morning over coffee. The horses were an added bonus - we delighted in watching them each day and having the opportunity to ride was icing on the cake. We also enjoyed exploring downtown Staunton's shops, restaurants & art galleries! Specifically Cranberry's, the Depot Grille, the Ox-Eye tasting room and Sunspot Glassblowing Gallery. It's worth mentioning how nice it was not to have to bring staples like toilet paper, hand soap, detergents, etc; many times these items are not provided with a rental. Definitely want to revisit your property again soon and bring the hubby & kids!

What a beautiful, peaceful place to unplug, relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery! The owner makes you feel welcomed and appreciated. The house was spotless and the amenities were roomy and comfy for the seven people that were staying. We loved having the horses there, although weather prevented us from riding them. The hot tub was a nice luxury--clean and well tended. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this location to anyone looking to kick back for awhile. Check out the "Depot" in Staunton for lunch or dinner. Absolutely spectacular! Reddish Ridge was the perfect choice for our little family reunion.

We recently returned from a family getaway to Reddish Ridge with our children and grand daughter. We all had such a wonderful time. The view was spectacular and the horses were such a pleasure to ride and feed. The entire weekend was relaxing and we really hope to return. Harold was so knowledgable and helpful and helped to make it a very pleasant stay. It is a great place to take the family!!

It's easy to see why the previous reviewer is 'frequent' guest!! Reddish Ridge met all our expectations and then some. We, the grandparents, along with two families and six children spent a relaxing four days at this wonderful home. We hiked through the woods, noting animal scat and prints, to a spring fed brook; played games on the front lawn; fed the ever so gentle horses--Star and Indy; relaxed and enjoyed star gazing in the hot tub; and lounged on the deck overlooking pastures & farms with the Allegheny Mts. in the distance. We only left once to visit the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton ! Harold and Sarah, his assistant, helped with the horses providing the children (ages 2,3,4,5,6, and 7) multiple opportunities for rides. Even the adults took a turn, including Nana on Indy, the Tennessee Walker!! Reddish Ridge stands out over other properties because of the little things--an abundance of house plants, family photos, antiques, and a pantry that includes condiments and spices. Harold is an accommodating host and takes obvious delight in sharing his fondness for animals and the Shenandoah Valley. We will return!

Absolutely fantastic vacation
Absolutely fantastic vacation
We just finished our fourth annual vacation week at Reddish Ridge. We love this place -- the horses, hiking, the "cave", hot tub, pool table, deck - the GREAT views. And, of course, Harold and Sandy both do a lot to make the stay wonderful. We go to relax and that's just what this place is best for. The teenagers like having their own space downstairs. The table is perfect for canasta - and we play a lot. The deck is just wonderfully peaceful. We cooked on the grill a good bit. Some of us rode the horses a lot. All of us saw Romeo and Juliet at the American Shakespeare Center - and three of us saw four plays altogether. If you're planning on staying in this area, you will be very pleased with Reddish Ridge. I can't think of a better place to stay. And again, thanks to Harold for all his attention and help in ensuring that our visit was fantastic.

Our family of rented the house for JMU Graduation weekend. The house had everything we needed and we loved it. Our only regret that with all the graduation activities we did not get to spend enough time there. Harold was most helpful with all our request. He came over Saturday night to show us how to ride the horses and stayed till we felt comfortable ridding them. He came back an hour later to help us start the grill. The house has fantastic views and in case you are a bird lover, you can see all kinds of beautiful birds coming to the bird feeder. Thank you Harold for making our stay so memorable. We will definitely come back.

Manager response: We are glad that you had a good time, and we hope you can return soon to enjoy all that Reddish Ridge has to offer. Harold Moore
We truly enjoyed our staying at Reddish Ridge. The owner has been very kind as well as his horses. The house was very clean and nice outdoor Jacuzzi was a plus! We definitely look forward to coming back!

Our family had a wonderful time at Reddish Ridge. The house was beautiful, roomy and very clean. The property was gorgeous. The owner spent a lot of time showing my college-age children how to saddle up the horses and gave much attention to our friend who had never ridden before. Our only disappointment is that we didn't have more time! Thank you Harold for a great family weekend, we are all hoping to come again soon!
