Master bedroom with bath, 2nd bedroom with queen size bed, 3rd bedroom with bunk beds (also have toddler bed if needed). Living room has 3 sleeper sofa's which will sleep 6. The kitchen and living room have cathedral ceilings with skylights. The living room features a tv with satellite, stereo and dvd player. It has a wood burning fireplace and there are also games and movies for your convenience. The kitchen is full and completely functional with a large country table which seats 8 comfortably. Out the kitchen door, it opens up to a large screened in porch which overlooks the water. We love having our morning coffee there. The screened in area is large enough (has a large table) so you have the option to eat outdoors as well. There is also a cooler on the screened in porch for your use. Outside the screened in porch also has an open deck in which grilling is perfect. Under the house, there is a patio area in which you could eat, read, or relax in the hammock. There are corn hole boards and bags for a friendly game. Or take the canoes, kayak or tubes out for a float. Go fishing or swimming right on the property. At night enjoy the large firepit with a fire for smores or cook your meal of hot dogs on it.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We are the Bruce Family. David and Kimberly Bruce-the owners of Bruce's Bend. We have 3 children. David was raised just one mile from the property and is very familiar with and loves the area. I was born and raised in New jersey till 1999 when I moved to Virginia. We both love to hike and be outdoors. Our children also love to hike and do all the outdoor activities that we hope you get to enjoy when you visit. We look forward to meeting new people who share the same love of the area.

Why the Owner Chose Eagle Rock, VA, USA:
David grew up just a mile down the road from the property. He had visited this house and knew the prior owners and told them that if they ever wanted to sell to let him know. Fortunately for us, they decided to sell and contacted David about purchasing the house. We love the house and plan on retiring here. We have had to move for a job change at this point and thought why not let others enjoy our home while we cannot.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
David was in love with the house from the first visit. The view from the couch gave the appearance that the creek flowed directly under the house. We absolutely love the screened in porch. We love sitting on the couch in the screened in porch and have our morning coffee. The house has many great points--firepit, creek view, big side yard, patio area, deck overlooking creek and much more. The screened in structure out front is the origional camp that still remains. It has a fireplace which is a good place to sit back and relax or hangout on a rainy day or evening.
