Overview

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.

suzanne eblen purchased this estate in 2014

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.

Beyond Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Every year my friends and I from grad school get together for a weekend to take a step back and breathe from all the “crazy” of life. We spent a wonderful weekend in this house and it allowed us to do just that, relax! We normally try to change location each year, but we all agree that this house will be our home one weekend a year.

We could not have asked for anything better!!!!

The most relaxing weekend in this wonderful house every year

  • 5 of 5

It has become a tradition to spend a yearly weekend in this beautiful, spectacular house with friends. Our yearly weekend in the house has become the highlight of our year. Highly recommended for peace and quiet plus great wineries. Suzanne and Kristen are costumer oriented and very helpful. Hopefully we'll do this again in 2018. Marisol

The perfect place for a retreat

  • 5 of 5

From day 1 of our correspondence with Kristen and Suzanne, they were communicative and and made booking the Retreat for our fine art wedding photography workshop an easy decision. Its relatively close proximity to Dulles Airport made it easy for our attendees to book our workshop, as well. The Retreat staff also connected us with an excellent local caterer / restaurant. Despite awful weather on Day 2 of our workshop, the gorgeous interiors of the Retreat made it easy for us to provide a 'backup plan' that gave our attendees a beautiful setting to photograph in. The WIFI signal is relatively strong throughout the house, even allowing one of our workshop speakers to conference in via Skype. Thank you Suzanne and thank you Kristen for all of your help!

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Hosted our team retreat here- Lovely home, cozy and very accessible. We particularly loved the history, which was shared on the house materials. The living room was perfect for our business Collaboration meeting... could comfortably seat 6-8. And enjoyed the paved trails for biking or walking. Owner was accommodating and a pleasure to work with! We'll be back!
