LOVELY ROCK HOME IN SHENANDOAH COUNTY. FOUR ACRES, BEAUTIFUL VIEWS

Mount Jackson House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom with Mountain Views

Enjoy a COUNTRY VACATION in our secluded, natural stone home on four acres of fields and forests with spectacular mountain views. Located in the Pleasant View area of Shenandoah County, the home is on a gentle rise and set back off a charming, easy-access hard surfaced country road. The property is securely fenced and gated.

A rock chimney and fireplace woodstove centers the Great Room where you may pursue indoor activities while having full views of yards, decks and mountains through floor to ceiling windows. Rocking recliners, comfy furniture and plush beds grace the home. The rock home is filled with amenities and meticulously cleaned and prepared for your visit.

We have stocked the kitchen and bathrooms with every amenity we can imagine you may need. We want your arrival to be easy and we make sure you have everything you need for a good night's rest and a good start the next morning as you discover the home, the property and the Shenandoah Valley.

Comfortable decks on three sides of the home provide opportunities for hours of outdoor relaxation. Views of mountains, fields and nature can give you perfect peace. Old time rockers, retro metal chairs and glider, lounge chairs, and tables grace the many decks. A double hammock and picnic table are beneath the towering oaks.

The cozy bedrooms provide a comfortable retreat for quiet moments. The master bedroom has its own bathroom and walk-in closet and French doors open onto the deck for coffee and sunrise viewing. All of the bedrooms offer quality queen beds. The fold out queen sofa bed allows one bedroom to be converted to a private, relaxing den or reading room, with a desk containing writing material, and offers wondrous mountain views.

For the adventurous, there are numerous walks, bike rides and country drives from the house. Discover historic Civil War battlefields and era homes from as early as the 1700's, iron furnaces, a covered and swinging bridges across creeks and the Shenandoah River. We have a basket of pamphlets detailing all the places you may want to visit. Our guest book features many trip ideas and detailed route directions. We will be delighted to answer questions at any time before or during your visit.

If you choose to stay home, there are lots of indoor and outdoor games and activities. Wonderful wildlife will visit you daily, showing off their unique personalities. Chipmunks race about for food, a fox squirrel checks here and there, a large variety of songbirds visit feeders and birdbath. Look for the beautiful indigo bunting. Wild rabbits frolic while deer and turkey can be seen along the fences and in the cornfield behind the house. Enjoy the mornings and evenings as you watch the sunrise and sunset over the lovely mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Doug and Judy:

We came for a romantic weekend away from our busy lives at home. This was the perfect location. We enjoyed the beautiful views and sitting on the deck watching the animals that came to play. The house was great and we really enjoyed playing games together. Thanks so much for providing a great place for our weekend away.

p.s. Thank you for the welcoming gifts - very thoughtful! :-)

Doug and I live on Merritt Island in Florida. We have retired from the Kennedy Space Center after 30 years of working with the Space Shuttle (also retired).

Judy Cooley purchased this house in 1978

This lovely rock home on four acres was our personal home for three years before we came to work at Kennedy Space Center. We loved the house and location so much that we chose to keep it and share it with others. Doug and I laid all of the uncut mountain, valley and river stones found in the house and deck wall.

Mount Jackson is a wonderful little town, situated just above the Shenandoah River, close to the Massanutten Mountain and along the Old Valley Pike. There are several good restaurants, a chain grocery store, gas stations and antique stores. Walking around town is a pleasurable passtime. My (Judy's) Grandparents owned the old stagecoach inn on the southern end of town. It's still there and President Andrew Jackson regularly stayed in an upstairs room during his travels through the Valley. The town was named for him. We love to stroll through the 1700's churchyard in the center of town and look for the graves of American Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers. Stonewall Jackson's camp was on Rude's Hill about a mile south of the town. He named the hill for Mr. Rude who owned the large 1700's house still standing at the foot of the hill.

Relaxing on the wonderful decks and enjoying the spectacular views and local wildlife. Touring the beautiful and historic Shenandoah Valley. Playing in the Shenandoah River and the many creeks that lace the Valley. Dozing by the wood stove on cool evenings. Walking and biking the many country roads. Driving from the Massanutten Mountain to the West Virginia border on Great North Mountain and traversing all of the scenic country roads in between. Attending good benefit country suppers and festivals where new friends can be met. Watching the sunrises and sunsets, seeing the moon come up over the Massanutten Mountain, viewing millions of stars that are bright in the fresh country air. Listening to bull frogs and spring peepers in the neighbor's pond. It's so quiet we can hear the grass grow.

great place to relax

  • 5 of 5
We arrived after dark the first night but when we got up the next morning and opened the curtains WOW the view is beautiful. The house is very comfortable,clean and well kept. the house has many essentials that you might need from the bedrooms to the bathrooms and kitchen. what a nice walk it is just around this property,or down to the road and up or down it. great little towns to visit and you can make several of them on a days drive. working with the owners was very easy and helpful about the area. we loved our 3 days here and we will return to seek out other sights in this area. also there are several wineries within a couple miles of the house. so this being such a great house we strongly suggest you choose it for your next trip to shenandoah valley.

We stayed at the house for a family reunion with my sister and her family who came from abroad, and were there with 4 kids. Everything was clean and beautifully arranged, the garden was charming, and we had great time!!
Would definitely come here again...

Great place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed a superb weekend at this lovely place during the peak of the fall foliage. The rooms are spacious and well-decorated using a distinctive country flavour, and the view out from any window are nothing short of enchanting. We also had great fun toying with the cassette tapes and star-gazing into night in complete privacy. The owners prepared a giant folder which would prove to be very helpful when we were looking for places to visit. There are neither Wi-Fi connection nor computer, but I opined that to be part of the whole therapeutic experience!!!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time visiting even though it rained almost the entire time and the trees weren't as glorious as we had hoped. Our stay was comfortable and 'at home' atmosphere. The house is clean and well maintained, with a very helpful binder of directions-even with additional pages we could take along in the car! It was a much needed getaway for all of us and I could not imagine the trip if we would have had to be in hotel rooms!

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Judy & Doug: Your lovely home was just what we needed for a long weekend getaway! Our 3 year old loved playing in the yard & also with the retro wooden toys. It was wonderful to stay at a home that had a fully stocked pantry, tons of toiletries, movies, cozy blankets and so on. Our favorite was the views from all sides of your home - the mountains, the pine trees and the cornfield. We enjoyed your location as well & visited a local winery, a community festival and the Shenandoah Caverns. We wanted a cozy place to relax and that's exactly what we found. Thanks again! p.s. thank you also for the apple butter...YUM.
