Overview

About the property

Stately manor, five bedrooms, 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 walking/biking 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 has five bedrooms and sleeps 10 with one king, two queens, one full, and two twin beds (twin beds are in the same room). The home is located in the heart of Virginia's wine country with over 10 vineyards within 10 miles.

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.

19th century mansion beautifully appointed

  • 5 of 5

Friends and family gathered in late August for a weekend, the first time we all stayed together under one roof in 20 years. No pressure. The fact that the Retreat was stunningly appointed with every possible kitchen, linen, water sport, game requirement set the relaxed and expansive tone for our whole stay. We loved the house so much, we never made it down to the river!! Richard Parker, the resident outdoor cat, became a short-term member of the family. Suzanne and Kristen were very responsive and accommodating in the making of reservations, answering questions and allowing me to glom onto a tour set up for wedding venue shoppers ahead of our stay.

Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a business retreat for the stylists on my Stella & Dot team. We were wowed by the decorating, loved the comfort and it was the perfect setting to connect, relax and plan our future business. We had 5 that stayed the night comfortably plus day guests. All the little details were covered from spices, oils, coffee, filters, paper towels, trash bags and more. We worked around the dining room table and on the patio and chatted in the living room. The house had so many perfect spots for photo ops. The Miles of paved walking trails along the river were an added plus and round trip to the gas station market for eggs was under 15 minutes. Suzanne and Kristen were great to work with. Of note, it is a quiet and relaxing setting, loud music and TV would be out of place. We hid a few decorated glitter rocks outside for others to find.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a hidden jewel! Perfect for our extended family during our nieces wedding. We had big family meals, long walks along the river and hours of laughter on the veranda . Need to come back someday .

Beautifully appointed and inviting home!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step into this home you feel a million miles away from the "real world!" My college girlfriends and I spent two glorious days together at the Retreat! Every detail is thought out. Your only job is to relax. Each and every room is more beautiful than the last. We visited the brewery and winery in town. The town is gorgeous and charming. Thank you for providing us a place to reconnect and have fun together!
