About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, our Partridge Lane vacation home places you near all that the Roanoke and Bedford County areas have to offer. Whatever the season, whatever the reason, this 47-acre spread is a place to get away from it all.

Located minutes from Milepost 85 on the Blue Ridge Parkway and a 30-minute drive to both Roanoke and Smith Mountain Lake, our Blue Ridge Mountains retreat is a place for peace and serenity. Or you can make it your home base for Liberty University (38 miles to Lynchburg) or Virginia Tech (60 miles to Blacksburg) football games or other events.

Partridge Lane's amenities:

• 3 bedrooms (all upstairs)

• 2½ bathrooms (1½ upstairs, 1 downstairs)

• Cozy living areas upstairs and down

• Spacious eat-in kitchen with new appliances

• New front and back decks offering spectacular views

• A selection of books and assorted games

Our home's location places it less than an hour from countless attractions:

Bedford area

• Peaks of Otter

• National D-Day Memorial

• Blue Ridge Parkway

• Bedford Wine Trail

• Smith Mountain Lake

• Appalachian Trail

• Natural Bridge

• Jefferson's Poplar Forest

Roanoke area

• Blue Ridge Parkway

• Carvin's Cove Natural Reserve

• Taubman Museum

• O. Winston Link Museum

• Mill Mountain Zoo

• The Roanoke River Greenway

• Craft beer breweries

Partridge Lane offers comforts of home in a secluded getaway. The only comforts we don't offer are the ones you'll never miss. Like email. The Internet. Telephone. But with so many nearby attractions to enjoy, and plenty of room to spread out and relax on our 47 acres, those 'conveniences' will never be missed.

And life's simple pleasures will be rediscovered.

To reach our home, you turn off Goose Creek Valley Road (Virginia 695) onto Partridge Lane, which is a private, one-lane, half-mile gravel/dirt road that is uneven in spots, take right fork in the road after crossing bridge. Four wheel drive vehicle with clearance is HIGHLY recommended. The road also is used by neighboring farmers as a right of way, but otherwise this is a private road that serves only our home.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed the weekend away from normal life, beautiful sunrise, nice view of mountains, felt like I was far away form the responsibility's of life which we need sometime. The cow pasture and cows took me back to my childhood as my Father's Uncle had them as I was growing up, the things I learned from them. Not to far from Roanoke and other places, very clean cabin, owners are very nice and made contact with them before we left to come up for the weekend to give any information to help out with anything.We saw deer, hawks, crows and a coyote way up at the back of wood line of the mountain, it was nice to see nature, where I live all the old farm lands get sold and developed into subdivisions.

Great place in the VA mountains

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away from it all in the middle of a cow pasture, this is your place! Quaint house north of Roanoke VA is far enough away from it all to see a million stars and not hear a single bit of traffic, yet close enough to visit some of the area attractions if desired. This is our second year having a mini-family reunion here and we will be back. We recommend it.

My overall impression was great, well kept and clean inside and out.

  • 4 of 5

The location was beautiful and very remote. My family and I had a great time there. There were plenty of things to do in and around the house, even without the wi-fi. I would love to back there with just my wife and I to do some exploring of the surrounding area.

Owner's Response: We're glad you both had such a good time. Please come back and explore the region here in Virginia's Blue Ridge -- there's so much history, from the local train culture in Roanoke to the D-Day Memorial in Bedford. Thomas Jefferson's summer home, Poplar Forest, is nearby as well. And of course you can't beat this region for hiking and mountain biking. We hope to see you again soon!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend in a group that included a 5 year-old, 3 year-old, and 1 year-old. We wanted somewhere remote because we were bringing a telescope to do some stargazing and astronomical photography, and it was a great place for that. The kids also had a fantastic time playing outside, and we really appreciated how safe the fire circle is in the back, with a nice, high ring of cement blocks around it. We had a campfire and did hot dogs and s'mores, and we never had any issues with kids getting too close. The inside of the house was very clean (even when we had to retrieve a toy from under furniture!), and I appreciated the owners' detailed instructions for using the media equipment. Really my only complaint (and it's not one they could likely do much about) is that there was so much cow manure in the yard from calf escapees from the neighboring farms. I grew up around livestock, so I'm used to it, and I know how difficult it is to keep calves from getting out, but it was tough to keep telling the kids to watch their step. It just made it harder for everyone to relax outside. But I think it just comes with the territory -- this house is a rural experience, and that's what we were going for. And at least the kids enjoyed watching the calves meander through the yard every evening. Also, Roanoke was only a 30-40 minute drive, so if you want a nice restaurant or something to do on a rainy day, it's really not hard to find. The Virginia Museum of Transportation was really fun for our train-lovers. Thanks for a nice stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for providing so much detail in your response. It's very helpful to future guests to give them a better idea of what they'll experience at Partridge Lane, which is definitely a "rural experience" but close enough to Roanoke, Bedford and Lynchburg that it's easy to get away for many shopping, dining and entertainment options. Come back soon!

Peaceful Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent Liberty College graduation weekend at the property. The view is absolutely incredible. The general feel is very peaceful and after fighting traffic and spending half the day at graduation is was a wonderful place to return to. The house itself was wonderful. There are 3 bedrooms, keep in mind, one looks like a child's room, so the bed looks to be a twin bed. The main bedroom has a half bath and the other larger bedroom has a queen bed and t.v. Everybody agreed the beds were very comfortable. There was a full bath, living room and kitchen/dining room. The kitchen was a nice size and we made use of it for breakfast and dinner. I did not go into the basement but my older daughter and son-in-law did and they said it was a nice size room, like a man cave. We spent a wonderful evening just sitting outside enjoying the scenery and peace and quiet. My grandson loved watching the cows on the neighboring land. The house was very welcoming and Valeria was greatly helpful in making sure we could find the house. Honestly, finding the actual road can be a bit daunting. My daughter had Waze on her phone and had trouble finding the road. It is a very small gravel road that leads you to the house. You need to be very careful and take your time going down the road. We were probably about 20 minutes from some restaurants like Applebees, stores (Wal-Mart) which was good in case you wanted to stock-up before arriving at the house. Valeria and Michael leave you instructions in the house as to what they would like you to do prior to leaving which was a great help. I also appreciated that Valeria was very accommodating on arrival time. The house was very clean and well looked after. They have a fire pit, which we did not use and a grill. There is a nice deck on the back of the house. However, be aware that if you are bringing your laptop, they do not have internet. I would definitely return to the house again and would recommend them to anybody travelling to the Roanoke area. I greatly appreciate them opening their house to us during that time.
