This secluded 3 Bedroom 1800 square foot “contemporary cabin” and future Bed & Breakfast is nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains on 21 acres adjacent to Veritas Vineyard. There is a two-car garage and each bedroom touts a mountain view as well as direct access to one of two decks. The beautiful pastoral property is separated from the world with shelter from the sounds and sights of civilization and yet is incredibly convenient to a plethora of wineries and breweries, an upcoming distillery, dining, agri-tourism, hiking, biking, skiing, golf, and rock climbing.
With a wooded ridge, two creeks, an orchard, hammocks, and a private hiking trail being blazed on the property, it is the perfect get-away for nature, outdoor recreation, and relaxation enthusiasts alike. If you are looking for even more space to explore, head 3.5 miles up the ridge to the intersection of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian trail at the South entrance of Shenandoah National Park.
We are well along in renovating this home into a Bed & Breakfast which will open this winter (Google Ridgeside Bed and Breakfast to find our Blog and Facebook page!) with only a few remaining repairs to go and many newly completed areas that are modern, stylish, and comfortable (see pictures). Note that we sometimes stay on the property in a totally separated basement suit (the innkeepers quarters) so it's possible that you might see us working in the woods or on the property during your stay. There are plenty of places to sit and relax and each bedroom has a brand new Serta queen bed with a double bed pull-out couch in the great room. Each bedroom now has it's own newly renovated bathroom and we recently completed hardwood floor installation throughout the house.
The recently renovated kitchen has granite countertops, two convection ovens, 5 burner glass-top range, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave with plenty of pans, dishes, and utensils available for your use. It sits in a large great room with seating, beautiful views of the property, and a full-sized dinner table that seats up to 8. If you're not in the mood to cook, drive less than 3 miles to Blue Mountain Brewery, try another area restaurant, or order pizza from Chirio’s (they deliver)!
In addition to what Nelson county has to offer, driving 25 minutes east to Charlottesville provides access to dining, shopping, wineries and breweries, and one of the most historically rich towns in Virginia. 30 minutes in the opposite direction is Staunton where you can find the American Shakespeare Center, the frontier culture museum, historic downtown, and yet more wineries.
Housekeeping and other notes: Please feel free to use the washer and drier as well as the other appliances. We try to keep soaps and paper goods stocked but it's not a bad idea to be prepared with your own in case you or the guest before you has finished up the supply. There is no TV, cable, or WiFi at the property, so prepare to be temporarily separated from the world. Pillows, pillow cases, sheets, and blankets are provided but towels and toiletries are not provided- please plan to bring your own.
Thanks and we hope that you choose to enjoy our property!
