A RELAXING PIECE OF HEAVEN! THE TANNERY IS AN HISTORIC GEM!

Warm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

The Tannery -A Beautiful 2 Story House- 2BR 1½BA With Sleeping Porch

The Tannery was built ca. 1820 on Old Germantown Road, an historic central byway, which in its heyday was an important part of revolutionary Virginia and used for the exploration of the then western frontier. Constructed with handmade brick and heart pine beams, The Tannery was initially a blacksmith shop, a tannery and a relay station for riders to obtain fresh horses.

In 1997, The Tannery was updated, remodeled and furnished with antiques. Large double back porches overlook two streams, a lovely treed half acre and the Alleghany Mountains. The Warm Springs Stream flows through the rear of the property, with warm mineral water around 90 degrees. There is a small pool and waterfall for a unique soaking experience day or night. To the front and side of the house, a cold artisan spring supplies The Tannery with the purest water and then trickles through watercress to meet the Warm Springs Stream.

Within walking distance, Warm Springs village is a charming step back into time. The village is 5 miles north of the historic Homestead Hotel. Wonderful restaurants are abundant including Saturday night dinners at the music conservatory of Garth Newell. The area is also surrounded by State and National Park land with plenty of out door activities. Or just relax on the main porch of The Tannery: read, bird watch, or nap in the hammock. The Tannery is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or an activity filled weekend. Come enjoy the beautiful mountains of Virginia.

Amenities: Fireplace, Local Phone, VCR & Tapes, Stereo, Full Kitchen, Microwave, Refrigerator, Cooking utensils provided, One AC Window Unit, Fans, Linens provided, Laundry facilities, Maid service.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We drove down from CT and we were certainly not disappointed! We came with our two dogs, and we enjoyed the trails and the lakes immensely.

Best of all, was coming back to this lovely place and soaking in the hot spring, or reading on the porch with a glass of wine. Thank you.

Jack and Mimi have owned The Tannery since they were married. They were actually married at The Tannery. They split their time between Colorado and the two Virginias. They love being in Warm Springs when they are able to. The history, the waters and the natural beauty of Bath County have always been close to their hearts. Their guests love it as much as they do.

Jack & Mimi deOlloqui-Turner purchased this house in 1997

This area of Virginia is stunningly beautiful. The village of Warm Springs has always been a haven for vacationers. Since the early 1700's people have come to 'take the waters', hunt, fish and enjoy the mountains. The area is also the home of the world famous Homestead and Greenbrier Resort Hotels.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My spouse and our two college-aged daughters stayed here on Easter 2009 weekend, and despite the dismal weather, we had a delightful weekend. The cottage is cozy, tastefully decorated, peaceful, and very convenient (easy walking distance) to nearby amenities, including a great restaurant, an excellent spa and a friendly and well equipped miniature tavern. The setting and grounds are gorgeous, the rear veranda a delight. The Tannery is a perfect location for a couple's romantic getaway, or quiet weekend with friends --- we will definitely be visiting the Tannery again.

Highly Recommended !

Peaceful Retreat to the Tannery for 4th of July

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a lovely weekend with our family to celebrate my mother-in-law's retirement at the Tannery. We can't say enough nice things. Mimi and Jack have lovingly restored this neat old house and furnished it so charmingly.

Here are just a few of the things we enjoyed: sleeping on the porch (a full 15 degrees cooler at night than what we're used to in DC!), watching steam roll off the hot springs in the morning, dinner at the Waterwheel, seeing the sun set between mountains halfway to Hot Springs, a spectacular fireworks display on the golf course at the Homestead, watching our puppy romp and fetch crab apples in the backyard, getting spoils at the Hot Spring's farmer's market, and jogs through Warm Springs in the mornings.

Very highly recommend the Tannery for its charm, tranquility, and well-appointedness!

Charming historic home

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely love this place. This was our second stay and we are plotting and planning a third trip next year. What you will enjoy:
1. Sleeping on the sleeping porch. The burble of the warm springs creek will sing you to sleep.
2. Garth Newel. Go on a weekend and attend a performance followed by dinner. You will meet people and have a great time.
3. Lying around in the "natural hot tub" (well, warm tub) in the stream out back.
4. Sitting on the porch downstairs and reading books.
5. Walking to the Grist Mill restaurant for delicious meals.
6. Thinking about all the people who lived and worked in this house over the many years.
7. Plotting how you could chuck it all and move to Bath County full time.

Things to bring:
1. water shoes--you'll be more comfortable in the stream. I keep forgetting them!
2. all cooking supplies (food/spices/salt & pepper/napkins/paper towels) you will need. Pots, pans, dishes, silverware & glasses are all there, however.
3. Verizon. You will get service. Can't speak for other carriers.

Hikes to enjoy:
Mount Pleasant. We are mid-forties in decent shape. Took us 4 hours (round trip) and the views were INCREDIBLE from one of the highest peaks in the Blue Ridge. (It's 1 1/2 hours drive from Warm Springs but who cares? The drive is also so pretty!) Go google it. Gorgeous!!!

Wonderful Visit to Warm Springs!

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Warm Springs to do a little ancestry research, and had a wonderful and relaxing stay. The home was rustic but comfortable. We fired up the wood burning stove and made ourselves at home on the covered porch, reading and taking afternoon naps. We slept out on the covered porch for several nights, and is there anything that promotes a good night sleep better than being out in the cool spring air? We had a fantastic, and surprisingly good dinner at the Grist Mill down the road. The wine, food and atmosphere were amazing for such a small town. We also visited the Bath County Courthouse and the Historical Society, and the folks there were friendly and helpful. This is a beautiful part of the country, and we loved staying in such a historic home with so much character. The owners were helpful and responsive. The photos and description of the property were very accurate. I would recommend this as a great place to stay! So quiet and relaxing!

Thanksgiving holiday at The Tannery

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five spent Thanksgiving week at The Tannery. It was the perfect cozy get-away! We spent lots of time around the wonderful wood stove, reading, playing board games and watching a few movies. I even cooked a 10 pound turkey along with a full Thanksgiving meal in the tiny kitchen.

We loved the comfort, warmth and charm of The Tannery along with the warm mineral spring right in the backyard. We also enjoyed walks with our dog around beautiful Warm Springs. My two teenage sons even slept one night out on the sleeping porch with lows in the 30's! Thank you for the down comforters provided!

Thanks for a great cottage!

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We went to the Tannery to celebrate my brother's birthday. The property was very nice, and pet friendly which was a must for us. We went hiking and fly fishing on the Jackson River, and spent a morning at Jefferson Pools. A very relaxing getaway! Perfect for two couples. I would definitely recommend staying here, we hope to return in the spring!

Since The Tannery is surrounded by geothermal springs, one must take a dip in the Jefferson Pools. There is plenty of wonderful hiking along the Warm Springs mountain ridge as well as in Hidden Valley along the Jackson River. After a full day of outdoor activities, stroll down to the Simon Kenton Pub and Waterwheel Restaurant or to the Warm Springs Inn restaurant. If driving, the choices are many. And don't forget Garth Newel for those musically inclined. There are many concerts and festivals during the summer/fall.
