STUNNING MOUNTAIN VIEWS IN PRISTINE, SERENE, NATURAL SETTING. LUXURIOUS COMFORT

Etlan / Old Rag Mountain House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, plus guest cottage, 4 full baths. Compound sleeps up to 12

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.

Whether you're relaxing or touring Shenandoah National Park or the wineries this is a perfect home with all the amenities you could ask for. Highly recommended and certainly looking forward to going back.

Heaven on a mountain

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 10 people for a wine tasting weekend getaway. Everything about this house was perfect. The online pictures do not capture the beauty of this stunning house. Everything inside and outside is gorgeous, clean, and well-maintained. The owners are courteous, helpful, and easy to work with. The sleeping arrangements were very comfortable and easy to accommodate a larger group. There are two decks the length of the house that were amazing to watch the sunrise behind the mountains. Definitely worth getting up a little early! I can't imagine a better place for a getaway!!

I recommend bringing food to the house. The kitchen is fully stocked and there is a grill. We had so much fun relaxing at the house while making dinner and playing games on the beautiful back yard.

If you are going to the area for wine tasting, barboursville is a must. We called it the Disney world of wineries!! Other good ones to check out are early mountain and trump. We used Camryn limo service for our wine tour. Not the best customer service planning the trip, but our driver Bill was excellent that day!! Also they are based out of Charlottesville and charge extra if you are not within a certain mile radius so make sure to get all that information if planning a trip!

Beautiful house in a beautiful location!

We had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous house. We comfortably slept 5 adults and 4 children. The house was everything we hoped for. Beautiful, clean and well appointed, and location could not be better. Country perfection! We would certainly consider renting here again.
