About the property

The Glendale House

If you are interested in seclusion,

dark skies, endless scenic views with

the glorious Mount Jefferson as a

backdrop, birdsongs, deer and

turkey, you have found your vacation


The Glendale House, situated on

33 acres at the end of a dirt road, is

ideal for folks wanting a break from

the urban pace. Just 82 miles from

downtown Winston-Salem, 1/4th

mile from the New River, 2 miles

from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the area

offers hiking, biking, golf,

tubing, canoeing, fishing, good

restaurants, a great arts district in

West Jefferson, and peace and quiet. Ben Long Fresco's are located in Glendale Springs, 3 miles from the cabin.

For the winter guest, weather permitting, tobogganing, sledding on the property, Appalachian Ski Mountain 32 miles via the Parkway.

The cozy 1,100 square foot

cabin is in a most beautiful place. The

cabin has maple floors and cabinets,

two bedrooms upstairs with hand crafted

beds, sunroom drawing in the

outside, one bathroom, no television,

no dishwasher, a washer and dryer,

picnic table and gas grill on the deck,

fire place in the back yard, a birdfilled

front yard, high speed wireless

internet connection and the upstairs has air conditioning. The cabin is

fully furnished and very inviting.

This lovely cabin is overlooking the New River Valley. As the fog raises in the morning and your coffee is brewing, you will see seven bends in this historic river valley and hear the rapids below. Your view is of the undistribued Blue Ridge Mountains with very few homes in the viewshed across the river valley.

The cabin is fully furnished. It is decorated with originial art, handcrafted furniture, pottery and photography. The office has high speed internet, a fax/copier and desk. A stargazer haven.

Great location, quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beautiful views - tons of stars at night, and yes Milky Way... Comfortable house, fully equipped kitchen, fast wi-fi, no TV (very good way to unwind). Sunroom was our favorite place. Pat (owner) came over and took me for a great walk with our (his and ours) dogs.

Will recommend to my friends. Lots of great hikes in the area - Mt. Jefferson park, etc.

Peaceful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Glendale House for our wedding anniversary and it was exactly what we needed. Spacious, quiet, and no TV! We didn't need to bring anything but food, toiletries, and clothing as Pat had a fully stocked house - everything we might need and then some! I'd definitely recommend this to someone looking to getaway. Thanks!!

Life is so busy, constant and stressful sometimes. This was the perfect place to relax. I very much appreciate you sharing your home. I felt like I was at home from the minute I walked in the door. Warm, comfortable and quiet. I will go back when I get a chance. The views were spectacular and the weather was perfect. I could not have made a better selection for my few days of rest. If you are looking for comfort and quiet, you have found the place. Thanks for everything, Vicky

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hi Pat

Our stay in your home was absolutely wonderful . It was so relaxing and peaceful .

We really enjoyed the fire pit outback and gazing at the stars .

It was home away from home .

Your home is so quaint and tastefully decorated and I loved all your beautifully framed pictures .

I wish I was there right now .

Thank you so much for everything it was a great time

Wonderful, peace filled house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It is close to West Jefferson and Glendale Springs but you feel like you are a million miles away. Very clean and comfortable. Great deck in the back for stargazing.
