The Rose Cottage is a comfortable home, centrally located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, just north of the Village of Fairfield. It is conveniently situated very near Interstate 81, Interstate 64, and US Route 11 (an interesting easy-to-drive highway that stretches from New Orleans all the way to the Canadian border, linking a multitude of cities and small towns along the way).
The property, secluded but not isolated, boasts magnificent views of the night sky, (see deep sky photos taken by our wonderful guest, Dave Morgan, from the Cottage), walking trails winding through our twenty acres of woodlands, bird and wildlife viewing, and a relaxing rural lifestyle experience.
A well appointed kitchen with dining area (should you take a notion to have a quiet meal at home or entertain a few friends), flows into a roomy living area with plenty of room for reading, watching a movie or listening to music. The living room opens directly onto a large outdoor deck, with a gas grill and seating for outdoor dining. The deck provides expansive views of pastureland, woods, and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains - a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee and newspaper or to unwind at the end of the day with a picnic supper or nightcap.
The home has central air conditioning and heat.
The living room contains a television and a well-stocked selection of DVDs for your enjoyment. The Cottage is served by DirecTV which includes ESPN channels. There is also an eclectic reading library for quiet evenings.
The main floor consists of three bedrooms, one with a queen bed and a private bath and dressing area. Two roomy bedrooms at the other end of the home share a full bath. One of those bedrooms is equipped with a full size bed. The other has two twin beds.
