We were looking for a place to get away from "it all" but still be close enough to "it" for when we wanted to get out. This was perfect. Nestled down a path off a secluded mountain road, this house was both charming and amazingly peaceful.
Hummingbirds, deer...all more plentiful than people.
Lovely breweries and restaurants nearby (including our favorite, the pet friendly brewery "Blue Mountain"). Three Notch'd Grill was also delicious (pork belly is a must try).
Easy drive to Staunton (the frontier museum is wonderful) and Charlottesville.
The house was clean, comfortable, and cozy.
Dick was a great host who made himself available but did not impose himself.
The dog loved it. We loved it. We can't wait to come back.
