Rose Cottage is located on a 154 acre farm, Oldenacres, in Cifax, Virginia. We are nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are nine miles from Bedford and fifteen miles from Lynchburg. (Less than a half hour's drive to Liberty University, Lynchburg College, and Randolph College and under an hour's drive to Sweet Briar College, Hollins College and Roanoke College.)
The property features beautiful views of mountains and fields of grazing horses, a small herd of miniature donkeys eagerly awaiting attention from our guest, hiking trails, and a private lake stocked with bass.
The charming brick home is elegantly appointed and furnished. It is surrounded by mature landscaping including specimen trees and shrubs and a formal and very private rock-walled garden that is directly accessible from the home.
The home's interior features a large master bedroom suite with king size bed, gas fireplace and attached bath with walk in shower, additional bedroom with full size bed, separate bath with stall shower, office studio, large living room with gas fireplace, elegantly appointed dining room seating eight, sun room overlooking formal gardens, fully appointed kitchen and laundry.
Guests may enjoy hiking, birding and fishing on the property as well as having easy access to the Appalachian Trail.
Grocery shopping service available and hosts (who live nearby) are available to help guests become acquainted with the wonderful qualities of the area. We will assist hikers to gain access to the nearby trails and help shuttle vehicles. We can also schedule a certified yoga instructor and or a massage therapist to visit Rose Cottage for private sessions with guests. Please note: In the event of the threat of severe winter weather, our cancellation policy will be waived and guests can choose an alternative time to reschedule their visit.
