Constructed in 2008, “Tucker’d Out” is situated on the eastern flank of the Blue Ridge Mountains near the base of Old Rag Mountain in Madison County, Virginia (right at the Madison/Rappahannock County line). The Shenandoah National Park is within view from the front porch of the cottage, and its many hiking trails and trout streams are easily accessible.
The opportunities for relaxation are abundant in this beautiful and historic part of Virginia. Whether you’re into hiking, fly-fishing, biking, dining out, antiquing, sipping wine at a nearby vineyard, including Sharp Rock (www.sharprockvineyards.com) and DuCard (www.ducardvineyards.com) or simply reading a good book in a rocking chair, there’s something here for every taste.
Virginia’s most famous hike, the Saddle Trail on Old Rag, can be your morning activity, followed by dinner that evening at one of the many fine restaurants in the area - including, Thornton River Grill or Rudy's Pizza in Sperryville or the nearby Inn at Little Washington - one of the world’s finest restaurants. Or, if you want to take it a little easier, enjoy the 26 private acres that surround Tucker’d Out – complete with trails, meadows and woodlands, and have a cook-out on the property. Stocked trout streams are minutes away for fly-fishing enthusiasts. Cool swimming holes on hot summer days are another local treat. The list of opportunities for recreation and relaxation goes on and on. The owners will happily answer any questions you may have about things to do in the area.
An outdoor shower with hot and cold water has been added at Tucker'd Out. This has been a big hit with our guests!
The tranquility of these ancient mountains, with their waterfalls, overlooks and wildlife, will quickly bring you a sense of peace that will make you glad you came. Come visit Tucker’d Out soon, and let nature take its course!

The Tuckers live in Richmond, Virginia. We bought the property in 2000 and camped on it for several years. We built our main house around 2003 and our guest cottage, Tucker'd Out, in 2008.
Peggy purchased this house in 2000
Perfect spot, wonderful cabin, amazing views, tastefully furnished...a terrific long weekend for our family over the Thanksgiving holiday. We will return!!! Thank you.
It was all great!!
Wonderful spot, clean and well appointed, comfortable beds outdoor shower great reading Room
very quiet and peaceful
Close to old rag , several good hikes vineyard down the street
This was a wonderful cabin in a great location. We met here for our annual ladies weekend and it was a blast! Peggy and Carter were wonderful and the house was just perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend! We will be back for sure!
My hiking buddy and I had such a nice time at Tucker'd Out. The cottage is absolutely perfect. You can tell that each room was put together with such great care, quality, and attention to every detail. It was just as fun to sit inside as it was to be doing things outdoors. I really appreciated not having to pack sheets, towels, etc. Every accommodation was at our fingertips. All the beds and furniture are extremely comfortable. I've never had such a good night's sleep!
We were lucky enough to have beautiful warm weather the first day of our trip. We were shocked at how close the Old Rag parking lot was to the house, less than 5 minutes. Very convenient! It was warm enough that we could try out the outdoor shower (which is fantastic) after a long day of hiking Old Rag. The next day it snowed 6+ inches, which made for some awesome scenery surrounding the cottage. The pizza at Rudy's is the best I've ever had, and the homemade soups and salads at the corner store are perfect for taking back to the house in case of a snowstorm!
We did not want to leave this wonderful place! I will most certainly be back with my family for our next vacation. Thank you, Peggy & Carter, for sharing your piece of paradise with us!
spent a long weekend here with some friends to get in some fall hiking. it was incredible! the location is excellent, so close to old rag. it was also close to skyline drive & sperryville (about 20 minutes). it was a very quiet and peaceful place to relax in the morning with coffee & bagels. then in the evening it was so cozy, snuggling in with some wine or beer to rest our weary bones. we loved grabbing pizza at rudy's in sperryville. there is also a corner store with great provisions. we plan to return again. the property is beautiful and the landscape is grand. we got to see a bear, some deer, and got in a whole lot of hiking!
Our family spent a long weekend at Tucker'd Out and enjoyed every minute. Plenty of space for our kids in the upstairs bedrooms/great room and a nice sized master downstairs for mom and dad. Kids watched deer, rabbits, frogs and turtles on the property and enjoyed the croquet and horseshoes games in the pasture. We found great food a the nearby market in Sperryville and had an excellent pizza from Rudy's Pizza, also in Sperryville. The house was very clean, well equipped and perfect - we'll be back. Owners were excellent with advice and information and provided very accurate, detailed directions.
