Owner info

About the owner: We are accessed by 3 miles of gravel country road that had an abundance of wildlife. Note the strict 15 mph speed limit. We are perched above the beautiful wide Shenandoah River, with a bit of a steep climb from the private landing right on our property.

Why the Owner Chose Boyce, VA, USA:
We can breathe here! No traffic, no neighbors or street lights and a world away from DC. You are in the woods...surrounded by woods and water! Ahhhhhh. We bought this 2nd home for our family and children. We're now putting 2 through college!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The cottage is also 20 minute drive to the Appalachian Trail. A hiking paradise! Middleburg offers great boutique shopping. From fine clothing & jewelry, to fancy toiletries, gourmet meats and take-home meal, visit this lovely town on the way to some of the wineries. There's even a special store for the furry member of your family. Berryville is a step back in time. Grab an ice cream cone or a latte. You are 20 minutes from the nearest grocery store. You pack in your goodies and we provide the fresh linens, towels, paper goods, etc.
