About the Property
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Futon sofa - (Sleeps 8)
Located in Northern Augusta County, Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, USA (Located in the Very Center of the Shenandoah Valley, convenient to both Harrisonburg and Staunton, just 45 minutes west of Charlottesville.) The Cottage is the first of two vacation rental properties on our 175 acre farm. See VRBO#712278 for a description and pictures of the Cabin as the alternative to the Cottage should it be unavailable for your days of travel. Both located on the same farm will give you a similar if not equal experience.
The Cottage House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)
Keywords: Private spacious vacation rental house, rural setting,
Enjoy the peace and quiet this country setting offers yet you are only a 15-minute drive from all the activities of Downtown Staunton, VA. and 25 minutes to Harrisonburg.
In this cottage, are two large bedrooms one with a queen-size bed, one with a full size antique bed. The third bedroom has a full size bed. The fourth bedroom has a twin bed. Workspace for your computer in several rooms. There is also a Futon that can sleep an additional adult comfortably.
On the first floor, there is a cozy living room with a Jötel gas stove, with game table, TV/VCR/DVD. The front door enters from a large private deck. There is a separate dining room with table that seats 6 plus a highchair for the little ones. There is also a comfortable loveseat in this room for relaxing away from the TV area.
There are 4 bedrooms on the second floor, one with private bath. Bedrooms offer 1 queen, 2 full, and 1 twin bed. A Pack n' Play is available for infants or toddlers.
A separate Keeping Room with bay window and view of the pool provides another “living area”. There are two bookcases filled with a variety of topics an genre of books for avid readers.
The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher, microwave and gas stove with a variety of small appliances and lots of dishware and serving pieces.
The Washer and Dryer are located on the first floor as well as the second bath with shower.
There is a table that seats 4 on the deck for dining out, and a nearby fire pit with lots of seating for enjoying cool starlit nights.
A large adjoining landscaped yard invites morning walks, or a relaxing rest in the hammock or grape arbor swing in the afternoons. The gazebo is a great garden spot for a cup of coffee or tea, or perhaps a glass of wine.
In addition to the amenities of the cottage and surrounding gardens, there is a large in ground salt water pool generally open May – September.
Take one of the many day trips to nearby Monticello, Luray Caverns, Natural Bridge, or the quaint shops in Staunton, Lexington or Charlottesville. Spend an evening at the Black Friars Shakespeare Theatre or take in the Waynesboro Symphony. The Forbes Fine Arts Center on the nearby JMU campus offers a variety of entertainment venues. A day trip to several of the many vineyards nearby or one of four US Presidents homes will be time well spent. Horseback riding from a local stable can be arranged, and a day antique shopping or perusing the small quaint shops located in the Valley towns will yield treasures to take home.
Convenient to Mary Baldwin College, Bridgewater College, James Madison University, and Eastern Mennonite University, and Blue Ridge Community College.

The Shenandoah National Park is a short drive away as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. In addition there are a number of vineyards nearby as well as stables for horseback riding. Wonderful restauarants, museums, farmers' markets, antique shops, and the American Shakespeare Company at the Black Friar Theatre are all within a short 20 minute drive. For day trips, Natural Bridge, Luray Caverns, Historic Charlottesville and Lexington are all less than an hour's drive. A fun place for the whole family is the Green Valley Book Fair, open 6 times a year for two weeks. A day on the farm offers trails through the woods for hiking, a large private in-ground pool for day or evening swimming, a fire-pit for chilly evenings and making 'smores,' and a variety of farm animals including sheep, mules, donkeys, cattle, and ten beautiful laying hens, some that lay colored eggs! Brilliant starry skies will amaze you at the end of the day!
Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: We enjoy gardening, antiquing, travelling, music and the outdoors. We have travelled through the British Isles, Europe, the American West, Canada and Mexico but now are content to share our place with other travelers.
Why the Owner Chose Churchville, VA, USA:
It would be hard to find a better location for a vacation rental. For historians, we are in the heart of colonial America and a comfortable drive to the Nation's Capital in Washington, DC. Another direction will take you to the beautiful Atlantic Beaches for a quick overnite stay or a long day's outing. Naturalists will enjoy pristine mountain streams known for exceptional trout fishing, or expansive National forests with mountain lakes. This property is well suited for people who wish to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings of the Valley and mountains, as well as those who wish to visit the myriad of attractions nearby or within short driving distance. It is a perfect place for photographers, artists, musicians, birdwatchers, writers or those simply seeking rest and relaxation. The four distinctive seasons lend themselves uniquely to a vacation anytime of the year. This is a family friendly home with safe outside play areas for children. Our farm menagerie includes donkeys, sheep, cattle, and beautiful laying hens who lay colorful eggs - including green and blue! Our family pets include friendly dogs and cats and two retired ponies. Our guests can enjoy the bounty of our family garden while they are here as well as fresh eggs if they like.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Two of the most st striking benefits of staying here are the magnificent morning vistas of the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains. Often the morning mist outlines the layers of mountain tops that cause you to pause, and often get your camera! Equally as beautiful, are the spectacular starry skies that are displayed on clear, cool nights. With no light pollution from urban areas, the starry skies are a sight to behold!
