About Becky Breeding
Gaie Lea was built during the 1950s as the dream home of a growing family. Lovingly upgraded over the years, Gaie Lea exudes the casual elegance. Situated at the center of an operational farm, the home remains in the care of the family who grew up inside its walls. Availability is limited due to frequent family functions and events.
Becky Breeding purchased this Estate in 1952
Why Becky Breeding chose Staunton
While there's an abundance of cultural and outdoor activities within minutes of Gaie Lea, we recommend making time to explore Bells Lane. Our little country road is 3-miles long and quite a popular dog-walking and jogging destination for locals. Even the local high school cross country team trains here! The location just couldn't be better.
What makes this Estate unique
Gaie Lea has something for everyone: ping pong, badminton, hike through the fields, canoe and fish in the stocked pond, take a dip in the luscious swimming pool overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains, or play tennis on the home’s private court.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Our large group of young children and adults had a fantastic stay here over a long weekend. Rain or shine there is plenty of space for everyone and the views from the pool and tennis courts are exceptional. The kids had a great time fishing on the lake and successfully caught and released a few small mouth bass and catfish one afternoon. We're looking forward to our return!
The property is awesome and the weekend could not have been better
We loved this home. It is quiet, private and filled with fun. We played tennis, swam, listened to old records and just enjoyed lounging and being with family. The home is roomy and there are many different spaces to inhabit. We loved the study and the little terrace off the kitchen. The home is very close to grocery stores and wonderful restaurants in downtown Staunton. Having the cows periodically roam around at the edge of the yard and pool was surprising, at first, but they are perfectly lovely companions. (My husband even played guitar for them and they seemed to enjoy it!) They are perfectly easy to ignore, but funny to observe. We hope to return to this quiet place in the future (and maybe invite more family). Highly recommend.
We loved hosting you and indeed, hope you return soon!
Beautiful home and setting
We could not have asked for a more beautiful location for our family gathering of 13, ages 1 to 93. We had planned to visit surrounding historical and hiking areas but were beyond content to stay on site and enjoy the pool and the grounds for our four days at Gaie Lea. We loved the vintage decor, and the connecting bedrooms were perfect for young families. Kitchen, game room, and linen closets were well-stocked and the owners and staff made check in and communication effortless. Thank you, friends at Gaie Lea, for a memorable visit.
Loved the Mountain views while relaxing at the pool. Very thoughtful owner provided just about everything we needed and a lot of extras you wouldn’t expect. The tennis court, pool and kayaks have us a lot to enjoy. Groceries close. The restaurants we found were average.
We loved hosting your group. Come again!
We just returned from a wonderful vacation at Gai Lea. The house was perfect for our family reunion. There were 11 of us and there definitely was room for a couple more. The house was extremely comfortable and nice and it was large enough for all of us to have our own space should that be needed. The decor was fun and whimsical which enhanced the experience. The only reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because the wifi was poor. Make sure to spend some time looking at the art work as they are done by the owner and some of her pieces are for sale.
