About the property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 24)

The Wayside Center offers a beautifully restored 200 year-old farmhouse on 25 lush, river bottom acres for use by your group.


The top floor contains two bedrooms, one with a full and two twin beds, the other with a queen and two twin beds. These rooms are ideal for families and have sufficient space for a couple of sleeping pads each on the floor.

The middle floor has a dormitory room with 4 bunkbeds custom-built to our specifications for maximum comfort and headroom. The door to this room can be closed for quiet and privacy, but it does contain the bathroom for that floor which others may need access to.

The ground floor has a dormitory room containing one full and seven twin beds.

Linens provided. Laundry machine and dryer on site.


The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped to cook for a large group, including two wall-mounted convection ovens and a five-burner gas stove mounted in an island. We have a 50-cup coffee maker and well as all of the large stock-pots, serving bowls, plates, silverware, etc. that you would need to cook for and serve a group of 24.

The dining room can easily accommodate 24.


The main living room in the house seats 22. The library is also lovely and cozy, with built in bookshelves. In nice weather, the 400+ s.f. deck provides an additional large meeting space and covered porches in the front and back provides numerous nooks for conversations and small group meetings. The broad, flat meadow provides ample space for a large tent. We can coordinate tent rental or put you in touch with local rental agencies.


The top floor of the house has a full bath with tub and hand-held shower. The middle floor contains a full bath with shower. The ground level floor has a half bath.


The house is equipped with wireless internet and a land-line with complementary domestic long-distance.


Our 25 acres of land includes substantial creek frontage and wooded hillsides for roaming. We have access to a lovely swimming hole, mostly waist-deep with a deeper area as well that sits beneath a small cascade. The meadow provides ample space for field games. There is a stone fire circle and easy access to wood for bonfires. We are located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and there are many day-hikes and other recreational opportunities within a short drive.


Our facility is ADA compliant with a concrete parking pad, sidewalk, wheelchair ramp and wheelchair accessible bathroom with appropriate fixtures and a shower chair.

About The Owner

We are a small non profit retreat center run by local, friendly folks.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why The Owner chose Virginia

Wayside is peaceful, secluded, and ideal for your next retreat or training. Renting the space enables us to offer this retreat space to other small groups and non profits in need of respite and community planning. Your support allows Wayside to work with groups who might otherwise not be able to afford time away from their day to day work.

This place was absolutely gorgeous and the perfect place to hold my sister's bachelorette party. The house was great and the property was even better. The owner was extremely accommodating and helped us with anything we needed. Would definitely stay here again!
