Watch the video for a quick overview! Hemlock Cottage is in a charming setting in the village of Bacova, Bath County VA. watch YOUTUBE VIDEO BELOW!
Bacova was built in the 1920's as a lumber mill town. In 1965 the village was completely restored. Hemlock Cottage is representative of a company house that has been carefully renovated and modernized. Bacova is located 10 minutes from The Homestead resort in Hot Springs, which offers 3 premier golf courses, riding, skiing, sporting clays and much more. And just 10 minutes away is Lake Moomaw, a gorgeous 12 mile lake with 44 miles of shoreline. Nestled in the George Washington National Forest, this lake fed by the Jackson River offers fishing, hunting, trails, swimming, beaches, and boating.
Within walking distance is a private 2 1/2 mile walking/hiking trail. Idyllic setting for fly-fishers, photographers, bird watchers, and artists. Elevated pasture with panoramic mountain views, scenic stocked trout stream with cascades and waterfall, picturesque gorge with overlook.
Hemlock Cottage is across the street from my 300 acre farm, Barn Hill. I have lived in Bath County for 40 years coming here right after college, Princeton, to be the tennis pro at The Homestead. As the owner and broker of Bacova Properties we provide a full service real estate brokerage firm. This is one of many properties owned and managed by my firm.
Instead of staying at the Homestead, we chose to stay at the Hemlock Cottage. it's nicely decorated and clean. We had a great time staying there over a long weekend. The owner left plenty of tourist info regarding the surrounding area. There are peaceful farms and nice walking trails around the property. We went to the Jefferson pool and also the Canyon Ranch Spa, both of which are within 15 minutes drive. We definitely will stay here again next time we come back to this area.
Looking for a place to relax and enjoy small town beauty and the great outdoors; this is it! Could not have asked for a friendlier owner, or a more relaxing place to stay. The trails, ponds and rivers were fantastic, the local areas had much to explore - not sure who loved it more, us or our labs!
Plenty of room. Very clean. Very nice and helpful owners. Had a beautiful time relaxing, on the beach and in the rental boats at Moomaw lake. The best restaurant we all liked was John's Steakhouse in Warm Springs. Sam Snead's tavern in Hot Springs is also good, but John's is better :-) C&O railroad museum in Clifton Forge is worth seeing. Also, Green Bank Radio Observatory and Cass scenic railroad are close by, in WV. Will try and go back!
Property was wonderful. Beautiful scenic surroundings. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all there is to offer in the area. Owner was very prompt and courteous. We would recommend this to anyone visiting the area and would stay again.
Very comfortable cottage in beautiful Virginia countryside. We had a lovely week enjoying trips to the various ' spring' towns and lazing on the quiet deck at Hemlock cottage. Enjoyed the Barn Hill walk. The Bunker tour at Greenbriers was great and loved the decor in the hotel itself. Scenic drive to Charlottesville and Monticello only takes just under 2 hours. Lots of great reading material at the cottage. Interesting local wildlife, including wild turkey. Hemlock cottage provided everything we needed (except for a hairdryer) for a a wonderful holiday. Would definitely recommend Hemlock cottage to anyone who enjoys lovely quiet countryside and a very well equiped, home from home.
Many thanks to Pat.
