Property description

A marvelous mountain lodge completed in 2002 and set on top of a ridge in the middle of 175 acres with long vistas in all directions. This mountain getaway is located just four miles from the village of Hot Springs and the Homestead Resort. Much of the adjoining land and view-shed of Winding Ridge is part of the George Washington National Forest. Because of this there is not another house in sight, and hardly a light visible at night!

The lodge offers a great room with stone fireplace, study with sofa bed and adjoining full bath, master bedroom with a queen sized bed and en suite bath. Second bedroom has a antique double bed and shares a bath with the third bedroom which has three single beds. Access the crow's nest from the spiral staircase - the perfect place to enjoy 360 degree mountain views and the stars at night. The screened porch and beautiful stone terrace provide outdoor living and dining space as well. For enjoyment inside, there is a collection of board games, a large selection of classic and children's videos, and an eclectic library.

Take to the woods and enjoy miles of trails, or just take a casual walk down to a mountain stream. Catch a glimpse of wildlife such as whitetail deer and wild turkeys, or if you are lucky a black bear. A search for native flowering plants on the property can come up with flame azaleas, mountain laurel or rhododendron. One of the Homestead bridle trails, Winding Trail, crosses through the property.

If you need a break from nature we have satelite, 50' smart TV, netflix, wireless internet, and a stereo with a cord to connect your phone or Ipod. There are speakers on the porch as well as inside. There are no neighbors within miles, so crank it up if you like!

Owner info

About the owner: My grandfather searched Bath and Highland for more than a decade before finding a nearby property in Dunn's Gap in 1965. The time I spent there as a youth, roaming the woods and streams ingrained a love of the area.

Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs, VA, USA:
My family bought the property now known as Winding Ridge in the 1980's. After much hiking of the area in all seasons, calculation of the sun angles at solstice and equinox, we selected the site. Using Staunton architect John Moore and local builder Lee Fry we broke ground in 2001 and completed construction in 2002. The stone for the fireplace and chimney is local Bath County sandstone, layed up by the skilled father/son mason team of Curtis and Jeff Lowry. The road and the dry stone retaining walls were built by another father son team of Burton and Mike Trimble. We endeavored to use as much local material as possible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have enjoyed having our three sons, now teenagers, grow up free to explore and discover the wonders of nature that are right outside the door of Winding Ridge.
