Dancing Bears Guest Cottage is located on a knoll near Jump Mountain in beautiful Rockbridge County, Virginia. Slow down and enjoy the ultimate relaxation in this secluded, picturesque area. The custom craftsmanship of the cottage is truly amazing. Downstairs you will find the main living area with an open living and dining area as well as the kitchen and bathroom with shower. Up the spiral stairs is a sitting area and work station with a futon which converts to a double bed. Just beyond the bookshelves is a sleeping area with a queen bed.
The cottage is adjacent to our main house via a large deck with hot tub and fire pit. Enjoy gazing at the stars at night without the glare of city lights. We are about 16 miles from Lexington with the Horse Center, VMI, and Washington and Lee University as well as about 20 miles from Staunton with Mary Baldwin College and The Blackfriars Playhouse.

It is a medicinal place where the beauty of nature seems to restore your mind and body. It offers a unique opportunity to slow way down and appreciate the quiet serenity as well as witness the magical beauty of nature.
A visually stunning and peaceful place to unwind, reconnect with nature, and be rejuvenated.
Come back to nature in a simple yet gorgeous cottage on the edge of the woods with views of Jump Mountain. Our 100 acre property adjoins 22,000 acres of a Wildlife Management Area, so you are likely to see a variety of wildlife such as deer, turkeys and the occasional black bear. You will also find it offers excellent birding opportunites for a large variety of birds. Relax in the hammock, on the deck, or in the hot tub. Hike several well-marked trails through the woods or fish and kayak in the spring-fed pond. Children will love catching crayfish in the creeks and playing in the tree house. No need to leave the property for entertainment!
