from Reston Virginia
Owner acquired this historic property to renovate and restore it. The main house was built by Israel Burner, a German immigrant, around 1860-1870, settling in the area known at that time as Burner's Bottom. The guest cottage was built in the early 1900's, and has been fully modernized and rebuilt. The Burner's originally owned around 5000 acres - the property now encompasses about 20 acres along the South Fork of the Shenandoah River.
The setting is spectacular, the main house is nestled in a small valley with excellent views of both Massanutten Mountain and The Blue Ridge Mountains. Much of the surrounding property is either National Forest or land which is protected by the Virginia Outdoors Foundation, so it is a wonderful place to rest and relax, enjoy great views while sitting by the fire or along the river bank.
