About the property

Stately manor, five bedroom, sleeps 10, two night minimum stay.

Built in 1799, the Retreat at Cool Spring is a recently restored historic manor house overlooking the Shenandoah River. Rich in history, the five bedroom luxury home sits on terraces overlooking the river, with five miles of paved trails for hiking directly in front of the house. A grand foyer, library, huge dining room and elegant living room are all a decorator's dream, and already have been the focus of many photographers' lenses. The house sleeps 10 with one king, two queens, and four twin beds. The home is located in the heart of Virginia's wine country with over 10 vineyards within 10 miles. There are three waterfalls, two fishing ponds, the river and a beautiful stream, all within a five to ten minute walk.

Located 47 mi west of the Capitol Beltway, 21 mi west of Leesburg, Va, 17 mi east of Winchester, Va, near Rt 7. This is truly an exceptional home, surrounded by incredible peace and nature, and ever deserving of the name it was given in 1799... The Retreat.

About suzanne eblen

My name is Suzanne Eblen, I am the founder of The Old Lucketts Store in the tiny village of Lucketts, Virginia. My entire adult life has been dedicated to creating a welcoming place where customers can find the coolest vintage stuff, at great prices in a wonderful atmosphere. It has always been my dream to restore an incredible historic home, furnish it in the style of my store and let guests enjoy a place that is out of the ordinary... incredible, yet welcoming, historic, but not a museum. This home has answered all of those dreams. It is by far the most beautiful, special place I have ever encountered. The setting, the architecture... are beathtaking. It was slated to be a restaurant, a clubhouse, but those prospects by previous owners floundered, because this house deserves to be simply a beautiful home.

Why suzanne eblen chose Blue Ridge Shores

I have never seen a property that for me is a perfect ten. The setting, the history, the architecture and the location, all make this home one of the most special places I have ever encountered.

What makes this estate unique

Each room in this house has incredible attributes. From the ten foot ceilings to the 200 year old windows to the amazing views, to the unbelievable hand carved woodwork. This is a truly special place, that I am honored to have been the person to restore it.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Retreat and it was every bit as wonderful over New Year's Eve as it was on the hottest weekend of the summer. It is, of course, stunningly beautiful, but also thoughtfully appointed and incredibly comfortable--with every detail accounted for: cloud-soft bed linens, wonderful soaps and ample towels, absolutely every single kitchen tool we needed for a festive holiday dinner, board games. We love this place so much, we plan to make it at least an annual visit for our four families. Thank you for a fantastic stay, yet again!

Thanksgiving retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the fact that this house was so isolated - down a beautiful, forested road! This was a tranquil escape from my hectic life! The home was extraordinary - the furnishings complimented the historic home. I loved waking up in the morning to the sunshine pouring into the room. And we all woke up in the morning and gathered around the large dining/breakfast table! Thank you so much - I am sure in the summer this is a fun place!

Perfect place for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Wish we booked a longer stay! Our three families had a wonderful long weekend at the Retreat. The house is BEAUTIFUL and in fantastic location. With the river (and house river tubes - not sure who loved the swan, pink flamingo or pizza floats better - kids or parents!), paved paths (with house bikes) and hiking trails so close, we never felt the need to get in the car and leave. Also loved how fully stocked the house was with necessities and fun extras! Made our weekend less stressful. Highly recommend spending some time at this place. Can't wait to book another vacation at the Retreat!
