About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Classic Virginia white clapboard farmhouse - on land farmed by the same family since 1864, with views of Spy Rock and Sugar Tree Hollow.

This century farm is situated on what is considered one of the most beautiful landholdings in the area. Native trout streams abound on the property - the pond is spring-fed, with a dock and adirondack chairs for sitting and relaxing. The farm house with its exposed chestnut beams, creamy white walls and yellow pine floors is quite simply amazing. An old hickory wood stove dominates the open living room and promises warmth on chilly nights. The kitchen with its vaulted ceilings, skylight and old fashioned pantry is sweet. Vaulted ceilings and large bay windows in the open master bedroom give things an open air feeling with views of the mountains and streams. There is even a clawfoot tub in the master bathroom overlooking the pond. White rocking chairs line the front porch and remind us of how uncomplicated things used to be in the old days.

Car: Recommended

Off the Blue Ridge Parkway and around the corner from the historic State Trout Hatchery. Just across the farm's creek is the trailhead to the Appalachian Trail, Spy Rock and Crabtree Falls and some of the best hiking and trout fishing in Virginia. Several wineries are a short drive away as are a number of apple orchards and on-farm markets.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Second Creek Farm is owned by Luther and Catherine Cash and is one of the last remaining authentic mountain farms beside the Blue Ridge Parkway. Luther grew up on the farm as did several generations of Seaman's and Cashes. Second Creek was a thriving sheep and cattle farm (cows still graze there Spring through Fall) and there were always a few work horses and a milk cow in the fields. The barns are unchanged, in fact you can still see where 'Dolly' and 'Dan' ate their hay and where their harnesses were hung. Luther manages the farm and wildlife habitats.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Second Creek is one of those places where you can just feel the history. Boys in overalls helping Grandpa put up hay, cows resting under the sugar maple trees in the fields, hoot owls hooting at night from the top of the big pines up on the high ground. It is a place of perfect peace that is hard to describe.
