Overview

About the property

43 Acres, 77 Windows To Witness The Breathtaking Views, Gunite Pool And Hot Tub

Our home sits on 43 acres and has 77 windows for you to witness the breathtaking views of the Shenandoah Valley, enjoy the expansive view of Massanutten, the Shenandoah River and the Blue Ridge Mountains! The yard is equipped with a gunite pool and hot tub, plus horses and cows grazing in the pasture. There are four levels of living space - the main floor, 2nd floor, walk out finished basement and a beautiful open staircase that leads to the huge attic that can sleep extra! Our home has 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 bath, Large Kitchen with 48” Viking stove and griddle, Dining area, Large Den w/ Gorgeous Stone Fire Place, Parlor with a Piano & 5 porches! The first floor and basement have 10' ceilings and the 2nd floor has 9' ceilings.

We moved to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley and built this home to raise our children. We designed it so that all of our family and friends could come and visit any time and stay with us.

It's such a peaceful, private place to take in the beautiful scenery and spend time with your family & friends. The spacious living areas give you space to gather all together or find a quiet room to read a book and relax. The outdoors come to life here while walking down the country road behind our home along the Shenandoah River or the country road in front of our home viewing the mountains and pastures. You can relax by the pool and hot tub or sit out on one of our 5 porches/decks. Wherever you sit or look there is an abundance of beauty. We love to watch the moon come over the mountains or the sun set behind them. Every day is a different picture to see - the foliage in the fall, the clouds against the mountains, the stars like you've never seen them before but best of all the laughter and joy when family and friends are gathered!

Anyone who visits or stays can't wait to come back. We have been told it's like a slice of heaven, a retreat, a place you never want to leave.

It is conveniently located to everything! We are 1 mile from Massanutten Resort (water park, golfing, horseback riding, miniature golf, skiing, tubing, snowboarding, ice skating), 10 minutes from James Madison University, 10 minutes from Harrisonburg, 15 minutes from The Shenandoah National Park (great hiking trails) , 40 minutes from Charlottesville (UVA), 25 minutes from Luray caverns & 35 minutes from Stuanton (Black Friar Theater). Along with all those wonderful options there is canoeing, river tubing, winery's, antiquing, Fishing, hunting (depending on the season), biking, etc...

About Mary Beth

We built this home in the beautiful Shendandoah Valley to raise our children. We designed it so that all of our family and friends could come and visit any time and stay with us. The home is so inviting and special to us and we hope you enjoy it as well.

Why Mary Beth chose Shenandoah Valley

The second we drove up to this piece of property we were blown away by the views and the peacefulness that surrounds the area! It's a great place for a family reunion. Anyone who visits or stays can't wait to come back. We have been told it's like a slice of heaven, a retreat, a place you never want to leave.

What makes this house unique

Wonderful house, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family which included 8 adults and 5 children under the age of 8. More than enough room for all of us. Awesome views! The kids loved checking on the cattle and horses every morning, and having the pool was a great plus! A wonderful home! Would absolutely love to stay here again!!

Great place for the extended family

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, big house with great basement space for kids and an attic as well. The boardrooms were big with enough bathrooms to take care of 17 of us. The views in the valley were spectacular no matter where you looked. The pool and the hot tub were a HUGE hit with the kids (and the adults too!).

They were great hosts providing information on things to do in the area and responding promptly to our questions. You will love this place.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect meeting place for our big family who live in a few different states. It was everything we hoped it would be. The house has a wonderful layout that works well with a lot of people and the view of the mountains is unbelievably beautiful. The pool and hot tub were the perfect addition. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots, etc. We were sad to leave but we look forward to returning again in the future.

Back again

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home in a beautiful spot. Lots of room inside and out. Would recommend replacing the tattered American flag and cleaning the windows. (don't want to miss the amazing views) Deb, the property manager is helpful and the yard and pool are maintained beautifully. Sorry to see the price increase. Hoping to return again with our kids and grand-kids as we have fallen in love with this home. Thank you!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The property has the most incredible views, and we had such a memorable stay. The house could use a few repairs, but nothing so major that it impacted our enjoyment . All in all we absolutely loved this place, and are so happy we found it. Mary Beth was fantastic to work with as well!

Unbelievable Views, Home & Property

  • 5 of 5

Mary shared her home with us to host our wedding party for three nights during our wedding weekend. The pictures do not do this place justice! We had plenty of space between the second floor bedrooms, finished attic and basement to house 20 people for the entire weekend as well as host a rehearsal dinner/cookout Saturday night. The outdoor patio space, deep pool and huge hot tub are phenomenal. We got married nearby at The Columns at Six Penny Farm on Sunday and can honestly say we couldn't have asked for a better wedding weekend with friends and family. Mary is a pleasure to work with and her neighbor Debbie, her property manager is the best. Thanks again for helping us celebrate the greatest weekend of our life.
