Overview

Etlan / Old Rag Mountain House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, plus guest cottage, 4 full baths. Compound sleeps up to 11

Step from your car and take a breath of cool mountain air. Hard to believe you’re 28 miles from Charlottesville, eighty-nine miles from Washington. The edge of the wild, this land borders Shenandoah National Forest, the most populous black bear country on the East Coast, with stunning views of the Blue Ridge mountains and the tiny, picturesque community of Graves Mill in the valley below. If you prefer hiking mountain trails, fishing a trout stream or sipping a drink on the wide two-story porch, this is the spot. Wintering in? Let it snow. The whole-house generator automatically keeps things cozy in the event of power outage. Add a steam sauna, two-person Jacuzzi with a view, Rumford fireplace in the Great Room and winter becomes a dreamer's paradise. Springtime brings Mountain Laurel and eagles. Summer offers cool relief from the flatlands. Then comes Autumn, a season you have to truly see to believe.

Pets: No pets allowed.

Smoking: Smoke-free home.

Noise Control: In keeping with the peaceful tranquility of the region, no ATVs or motorcycles permitted on property.

Beautiful, Relaxing, Excellent Value!

  • 5 of 5
Recently, my wife and I and three other couples stayed at this beautiful home! The place was incredibly breathtaking with the mountain views. The interior was very clean and was very well built. I met the owner and he was very courteous, helpful and polite. He actually designed the place himself, and he did a wonderful job!

People in our group especially liked the fireplace, the rain shower, the sauna, and the amazing rooms (especially the master bedroom and the cottage adjacent to the house). You know you're staying at a great place when you and your friends start talking about returning the following year. We loved the place and recommend it to anybody looking for a relaxing getaway, whether it's with your family or a group of friends.

Absolutely wonderful family retreat

Great vacation house!

We had a wonderful time at this house with our small group from church. The house had beautiful views, great amenities, and was plenty spacious for our group of 10 adults. Highly recommended!

Spectacular home in the mountains

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky to find this beautiful house to host a women's weekend getaway. It is very roomy with a fully appointed kitchen and two outside porches from which to enjoy a spectacular view of the valley below.

We spent the weekend hiking Old Rag, the Graves Mill Trail and visiting Early Mountain Winery which is a short distance away. We loved the house so much we arranged to spend most of our time there, bringing in massage therapists and a personal chef for some ultimate pampering!

Couldn't have asked for nicer or more flexible service from the owners. We will definitely be back!

Extremely Beautiful and Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
This house is absolutely beautiful and extremely comfortable! We were a family of four sub-families, including 7 adults and 3 young children. Everyone had enough space to spread out. We could be as private as we needed and gather together for meals or to play games.
This house, cottage and grounds are well maintained. A lot of thought has gone into anticipating guests' needs. Every imaginable kitchen gadget is provided as well as numerous games and more books than we could count!
If there is a down side it would be the distance you have to go to get to the nearest grocery. While it is a bit of a drive (like 30-40 mins.), once we made our big shopping trip and got back to the house, we were more than glad to be away from civilization. It is so quiet here! And at night the stars shine very brightly and can be viewed through the amazing telescope upstairs!
Another minor issue is the wifi/cell reception. If more than one person is using wifi it is extremely slow. But if you're on vacation to get away from everything, wifi isn't that big of a deal anyway.
Be sure to check out the couple of very nice wineries nearby that offer excellent tastings. Also, make sure you go for a walk/hike on any of the numerous paths/trails. There are a couple of easy ones close by and some more difficult ones you can drive to.
We as a family highly recommend this property. Hopefully we will be able to return one day!
