'WINDING RIDGE' A MOUNTAINTOP HOME WITH INCREDIBLE VIEWS!

Hot Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

A marvelous mountain lodge completed in 2002 and set on top of a ridge in the middle of 175 acres with long vistas in all directions. This mountain getaway is located just four miles from the village of Hot Springs and the Homestead Resort. Much of the adjoining land and view-shed of Winding Ridge is part of the George Washington National Forest. Because of this there is not another house in sight, and hardly a light visible at night!

The lodge offers a great room with stone fireplace, study with sofa bed and adjoining full bath, master bedroom with a queen sized bed and en suite bath. Second bedroom has a antique double bed and shares a bath with the third bedroom which has three single beds. Access the crow's nest from the spiral staircase - the perfect place to enjoy 360 degree mountain views and the stars at night. The screened porch and beautiful stone terrace provide outdoor living and dining space as well. For enjoyment inside, there is a collection of board games, a large selection of classic and children's videos, and an eclectic library.

Take to the woods and enjoy miles of trails, or just take a casual walk down to a mountain stream. Catch a glimpse of wildlife such as whitetail deer and wild turkeys, or if you are lucky a black bear. A search for native flowering plants on the property can come up with flame azaleas, mountain laurel or rhododendron. One of the Homestead bridle trails, Winding Trail, crosses through the property.

If you need a break from nature we have satelite, 50' smart TV, netflix, wireless internet, and a stereo with a cord to connect your phone or Ipod. There are speakers on the porch as well as inside. There are no neighbors within miles, so crank it up if you like!

About Kevin and Sue Eley

My grandfather searched Bath and Highland for more than a decade before finding a nearby property in Dunn's Gap in 1965. The time I spent there as a youth, roaming the woods and streams ingrained a love of the area.

Why Kevin and Sue Eley chose Hot Springs

My family bought the property now known as Winding Ridge in the 1980's. After much hiking of the area in all seasons, calculation of the sun angles at solstice and equinox, we selected the site. Using Staunton architect John Moore and local builder Lee Fry we broke ground in 2001 and completed construction in 2002. The stone for the fireplace and chimney is local Bath County sandstone, layed up by the skilled father/son mason team of Curtis and Jeff Lowry. The road and the dry stone retaining walls were built by another father son team of Burton and Mike Trimble. We endeavored to use as much local material as possible.

What makes this house unique

We have enjoyed having our three sons, now teenagers, grow up free to explore and discover the wonders of nature that are right outside the door of Winding Ridge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stood watching the sun rise over the mountain this morning. With coffee cup in hand, before the three bay window, it began as a faint blue. As light increased, a silvery frost highlighted the landscape before me. Forcing myself to stay put, stubborn brown leaves now appeared guilded, bare branches glistened, and pine needles tipped. Pulling over a stool I sat and sipped, the place where the sun would rise was now a glow! - and soon the intensity of the flow caused me to look away. It is now time to pack and go - this is after all my last day. Parting such sweet sorrow.......

Perfect Summer Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Over the years we've taken many holiday rentals in Europe and the States, this was by far the best we have ever had. The house and location were just amazing, the photos could never do it justice. Inside was immaculately clean, well furnished and equipped with just about everything you could possibly need. The setting was idyllic, totally secluded and private allowing us to feel that we were right out in the wilderness yet it was less than 10 minutes drive from Hot Springs. We used only a few local restaurants but never had a bad meal. True that options to eat out were a bit limited but there was more than enough choice for us, especially as we actually preferred to eat outside at Winding Ridge in the evenings listening to the noise of the forest. We loved Douthat State Park and it's trails, Lake Moomaw and just generally exploring the local area. Our 10 year old son also enjoyed a few activities at the Homestead. Both the owners and the agent in Hot Springs were very helpful. Without hesitation would I recommend this place. A week was not enough...if only I could live there!

A Great Mountain Escape

  • 5 of 5
Perched atop a quiet ridge outside Hot Springs you'll find this beautiful lodge with nice views and all the features you'd ever want in a rental. Everything is new and well maintained, with lots of interesting details. Felt like we were staying in an old friend's house. Our family would definitely return.

Stunning home!

  • 5 of 5
This is the fourth VRBO vacation rental at which we have stayed and it is, by far, the best. The pictures do not do the home justice. It is an immaculate, spacious and well-appointed home. Unlike other properties we have rented, it provided basic staples necessary for our stay. We usually bring our own supply of kitchen accessories and cleaning agents but this property had it all, from soap to coffee filters to sufficient pots and pans. This was greatly appreciated. The view of the mountains from the porch and especially, the master bath, is picture perfect. The property is extensive and very private. What made the rental that much more special was the owner. From the beginning of the process to the end of our stay, Kevin proved to be very gracious, informative and supportive. This personal touch enhanced our experience. Though we chose not to advantage of what the area offered, we were quite happy to remain in this stunning home and simply breathe!

Hands down the best..

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation to Winding Ridge was without a doubt much more than we expected. Having been our first time to this location, but also having previously lived in Warm Springs, 30 years ago, this location provided exactly what we remembered as being the best things about this area. It was a gorgeous view at all points of the property. It was also very well maintained from all points. Even the garbage pickup service was personable and courteous with local knowledge about the surrounding area. Town was just around the corner, with a beautiful drive into Hot Springs. I can't stress how perfectly maintained the property was. My whole family was in awe, the entire time. The house was spotless..

Working with the owner was a pleasure and we really can't wait until our next visit.

Thanks for a great time, This is as good as it will get with vacation rentals.

Absolutely gorgeous and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in January, and loved the huge fireplace, snow on the ground, and hikes around the property. The house is decorated so beautifully, and it's very well-equipped - there is nothing you will need to bring for the kitchen, or laundry - it's all there! We loved staying in this area, driving through the "little Switzerland" of Virginia, and taking our dogs to swim at Lake Moomaw. Also had a fantastic dinner in Warm Springs at the Inn at Gristmill. Next time we plan to book reservations for the spa at the Homestead. You could stay at this house and have a very private, quiet trip, or take advantage of many outdoor activities in the area, and activities at The Homestead - either way, this house is a fantastic choice.

What a beautiful cabin! It's very secluded and absolutely gorgeous. The Crow's nest was the kids favorite spot.
