A beautiful mountain lodge 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 satellite, 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!

About Kevin and Sue Eley
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 Kevin and Sue Eley chose Valley Springs
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Fantastic home and location
Winding Ridge was the perfect spot for 4 days of relaxation. The house is very well equipped, from the kitchen to the library. The cozy living room has the most amazing stone fireplace which we used each chilly April evening.
We found the location ideal. 10 minutes to both Warm & Hot Springs but incredibly private and serene. A total gem!
This is the place to be!
We have been visiting this property for 3 years now and it never disappoints!
Amazing property-we are so grateful
Our company was in Hot Springs for a conference & the lodging was full for miles-we decided to rent this house & test it out. All four of us were amazed at the details put into the house from design to decor-it has everything. We were able to get to know each other and relax with a nice fire going. It is so peaceful and allowed our team an opportunity to recap the conference together! Thanks for sharing your great property and we will be back!!
Fabulous, highly recommend!
The beautiful house was a home to us for the weekend. Arriving at night we safely maneuvered up the driveway and into the house to awaken the next morning to a beautiful mountain view all around. Everything was there that you would want in your own home to make it a comfortable stay but so much more luxorious. Beautiful fireplace, kitchen, wrap around porches we did not appreciate fully because it was a chilly weekend. Master bedroom was very comfortable and neat cupola up above. we did not utilize the third bedroom which looked ideal for accompanying kids in a family. We would like to make it a regular vacation! Thank you.
What an awsome property with great owners
We had 2 families up to Winding Ridge and had a fabulous time. This house is very nice. The view and hiking were amazing. The owner was very accommodating with our requests. We will definitely go back.
