Etlan / Old Rag Mountain House Rental Photos and Description
Exceptional, Post & Beam, 4BR 3BA Luxurious Lodge with Loft, Decorated in So
Large, rustic, & luxurious are words seldom used together, but that's Spirit Dancer Lodge, a luxurious, energizing, rejuvenating, and ROMANTIC get-away far removed from the stresses of city life. We're on 60 private acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Shenandoah Valley. We offer 4000 square feet of living space with queen beds in three of the four, spacious bedrooms with a soaking tub and shower in the master bedroom. A large, closed-in loft area has four twin beds. All rooms have large windows to let the outside in.
The great room has a huge stone fireplace, dining room and kitchen, all open together and has floor to ceiling windows with prowl front and Brazilian cherry hardwood floors. There's carpet in the other rooms. Our hot tub, at the end of our extensive deck, is perfect for star gazing or wildlife watching. Downstairs, you'll find our sauna room (5 person) with queen-size futon, 18 foot stone bar, game room, exercise room and 62 inch TV.
The sofa here has pull-out queen-size bed. The interior house is specially designed in southwest decor (Home Beautiful).
We're located in Etlan, VA, just off Virginia's Route 231, one of America's ten most outstanding scenic byways (Great for biking!). We back up to Shenandoah National Park & Old Rag Mountain, which offer numerous scenic hiking trials, & we have our own private hiking trails on the property. We have a stocked pond for 'catch & release' only, however, there's recreational trout fishing nearby on the Rose, Hughes and Rapidan Rivers. Visit many, outstanding wineries, cheese factories, historic sites, civil war battlefields, Luray caverns, historic Monticello and the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Antique shop, bike, hike or just sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery and numerous wildlife. Bird watching is also popular.
We also have a smokehouse which is great for all kinds of food. Our dining room table seats 16 comfortably and makes for memorable, candlelight celebrations.
Specially designed lighting throughout the house makes it very romantic. A massage therapy center will come to the lodge for your spa massage. We also have a picnic table atop cocktail hill where you can sip your favorite beverage while viewing the breathtaking, panoramic view of the valley below. It's Wonderful!!
The Lodge is ideal for family gatherings, corporate retreats, reunions, birthdays, girls/guys weekends & theme weekends: i.e. cooking, yoga, painting, photography, nature, birding, & much more. Planning coordinator is available upon request.
There are many scheduled events, festivals, and activities throughout the year. There are world class to down-home restaurants within 10-30 miles (Most notable, Inn of Little Washington). So come and relax. You won't want to leave.
Memories are made here!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Rained the entire weekend at Spirit Dancer but our family had the very best weekend in years! Great fun in a spectacular house. Watched deer feeding and a mother black bear and her two yearling cubs in the meadow directly below the cabin. We will be back and it should be even better with a little sun.
