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!
