Property description

A serene, scenic setting for milestone events: Off-site retreats. Family reunions. Overflow space for out-of-town kin at weddings or funerals. Enjoy a private bedroom , or wander over 300 acres of woodland, and meadow. Gather together in
the great room. Talk privately in the office.

Visit nearby attractions. In less than 25 minutes you can be at Liberty University, the D-Day Memorial, Blue Ridge Parkway, James River, or Holy Land USA.

Smith Mountain Lake, Roanoke, Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest, and the Booker T. Washington National Monument are less than an hour away.

Economize by cooking for yourself, or splurge by calling on a local catering service. There's even a five-star restaurant three miles away -- but you will need to make reservations for the Mill Stone Tea Room!

Sit on the deck after dinner, and watch the sun set behind the Peaks of Otter. Then enjoy DVDs (or PowerPoint presentations!) on the flatscreen monitor.

Rally your team in the spacious great room, with more than 600 square feet of floor space. Or, have private meetings and check your e-mail in the conference room. Bring a spirit of adventure, and take home a harvest of memories.

Special notes:

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1970

About: Urban and regional planner retired to raise apples, cattle, and children. A passionate outdoorsman, he enjoys welcoming people who share his appreciation for the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Why Bedford, VA, USA:
Tom Smedley views Appalachia as 'the playground for megalopolis.' In less than three hours, residents of Northern Virginia, Washington, DC, or the North Carolina Triad and Triangle areas, can find clean air, mountains, wildlife, and breathing room.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
This facility is made to order for larger groups. Six couples and three of their children can retreat to private bedrooms, mingle with co-workers or kin in the great room, have private conversations in a small office, or hike the 300+ acres with kissing cousins. Listen to the music of Overstreet Creek. Lift your eyes to horizons many miles away, clearly visible in the transparent air. Watch the clouds playing tag with the mountain tops. See new birds on south- and north-facing hillsides. Let us help you make your milestone events truly memorable.
