CHARMING, SECLUDED TURN OF THE CENTURY HOME IDEAL FOR A RELAXING FAMILY RETREAT

Wytheville Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Main house has 4 b.r. and 2.5 baths sleeps 8, cottage has full bath and sleeps 2

Conveniently located near the crossroads of I-77 and I-81, The Glade is a charming and secluded fully updated turn of the century Victorian farmhouse, located on 62 private park like acres, ideal for a relaxing retreat, or a romantic escape. There are two rental options available, the main house with 4 b.r. and 2.5 baths sleeps 8, and the cottage with a full bath sleeps 2, both have decks with gas grills overlooking spring fed Reed Creek and can be rented separately or together. RATES SHOWN ABOVE ARE FOR THE MAIN HOUSE ONLY, reduced cottage rates apply when both are rented together, cottage will not be rented seperately when farmhouse is rented. Located only 5 miles from interstate and town, with shopping, dining, and all essentials including medical care close by. Close as The Glade is to town, once you cross over our 135' bridge you have escaped the outside world and will immediately feel your pulse slow. Both the cottage and the farmhouse have high-speed wireless internet.

Getting There: Located 71 miles from Roanoke Virginia's airport, 75 miles from Bristol Tennessee's airport, and only 120 miles from Charlotte North Carolina's airport The Glade is within reach.

From Wytheville exit 70 on Interstate 81, continue right on Highway 52 N / Stoney Fork Road for 2.7 miles to State Road 664 / Glade Road on the left, continue 2.3 miles on Glade Road to the address and sign on the left. Follow the road along the cliff side continuing past brick house on the right to the bridge on the left. Cross the bridge and continue to the right +- 400' to the parking area, which is adequate for 4 vehicles. The private 135 foot bridge is the only access to The Glade as Reed Creek meanders for 1 mile around the property and the steep ridge in the back renders it virtually inaccessible otherwise. You will notice having crossed the bridge you are now on a peninsula created by Reed Creek which makes a hard right turn just past the bridge as it continues it's flow downstream to The New River.

The Accommodations : The 1910 restored and updated Victorian Farmhouse and cottage are located on a 7 acre peninsula. It features a large porch on two sides with rockers facing the gardens and the 4 acre manicured lawn on the bottom land where the vegetable, herb garden, and berry patch are located. The grassy lawn is suitable for a variety of sports activities from frisbee golf, and croquet, to touch football. On the creek side of the Farmhouse is a multi level deck with built in benches, a gas grill, with a beautiful long view of Reed Creek all conveniently located off the kitchen an arrangement ideally suited for enjoyable outdoor meals. The cottage which we call the 'Sugar Shack' is located next to the Farmhouse with a queen bed, full bath, it's own private deck, propane grill, mini fridge, and is ideal for a couple. With 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bedrooms in the Farmhouse, and a bedroom and full bath in the Cottage. There are 4 queens and 1 king sized beds providing comfortable accommodations for 10.

The Property: 'The charm of the property is impossible to describe, but anyone who visits feels it's enchantment. The charm lies neither in its architecture, though it has a certain rural 'kindness', nor in it's formal plan but in the site itself, the variety of spaces and experiences and the way people from one family have made themselves at home here for five generations.'

The Glade's sixty two park like acres are varied in terrain, with steep creek side ridges, open meadows, heavily wooded forrest trails, and pastoral grassy paths alongside a wide spring fed creek. Your visit may be relaxing, active, romantic, or a family reunion with multiple generations getting together. You can be assured with absolute certainty your time at The Glade will be a very special memory for all.

Suitable for weddings, and other large affairs, The Glade has accommodated up to 200 guests on it's manicured 4 acre lawn. Please inquire regarding any future events.

I am a native Floridian 'Flat Lander' who fell in love with this property and decided to purchase even though my wife and I were not ready to live there yet. I am an avowed nature lover and have been able to earn a living as such in the wholesale nursery business for the past 35 years. I am now enjoying the opportunity to beautify and dabble on the magnificent canvas that is The Glade. A previous owner was a landscape architect and began the gardens, we are now enlarging and enhancing them with both ornamentals and edibles in an effort to create more of a permaculture on the property. This area of the country being so different from my native environs I very often find myself in my spare time simply doing a lot of walking with my dog, enjoying the solitude and natural beauty that is found here.

In years past, I have spent lots of time in Costa Rica and specifically for the last 20 years on The Osa Penninsula in an area known as Matapalo, where the diversity of plant and animal life is overwhelming. I find the feeling I get at The Glade very similar to that which I feel in Matapalo, a sense of calmness as I am removed from the intrusion of the modern world and am able to easily live in the moment, enjoying simple pleasures we all seem to typically overlook in our day to day lives. I hope all who choose to spend time at The Glade will find the same calmness, I and others have found here.

The map below shows the entry to The Glade crossing Reed Creek via our bridge then leading to the farmhouse. The Glade is wrapped by Reed Creek essentially on five different frontages.

Owner / Caretaker purchased this farmhouse in 2006

When I came across this home I was amazed by the property and how it is essentially a peninsula surrounded by Reed Creek accessible only by our bridge. After 5 years of 'sprucing up' the farmhouse, and cottage are perfectly restored and now we are focusing on enhancing the grounds both aesthetically and sustainably with vegetable

gardens, berry patches, and fruit trees. I view this property as an Appalachian eco- retreat given the diversity of plant and animal life that we protect and enjoy, and have just recently chosen to share this special place with others.

This property is a private park. With the varied terrain and trails one could spend hours hiking and not see all the the beautiful spots it has to offer. The farmhouse with its large front porch and rockers is a great place for a cool drink after exploring, and the back decks offer a great spot to have meals and watch the creek flow by.

Charming, spacious, comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Great relaxing time in a charming, spacious home. We loved the deck and grilled out several times. The landscaping was beautiful. The caretaker was super. I loved the large claw foot tub and the view was perfect. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch and spent a rainy afternoon working 1 of the puzzles in the house. I would definitely recommend this home and plan to return myself.

Absolutely fabulous, beautifully restored home

  • 5 of 5
This property appeared beautiful and in a gorgeous setting on the website. In reality, it even exceeded our very high expectations. The house (and cottage) are charming, well appointed, beautifully decorated, and very well maintained. The grounds as well are fabulous. It was the PERFECT place for the family to gather for our son's wedding in the area. The owner and manager were wonderful to deal with and provided excellent customer service. Everyone in the family agreed that the Glade is OUTSTANDING. We are glad that we chose to stay here, and only wish we could have stayed much longer. Hopefully we will be able to return again some day. We would HIGHLY recommend this property to others without reservation.

Owner's Response: Bob,

Thank you for your kind review and I very am pleased that The Glade exceeded your expectations.

As you now realize, there is something to do for everyone of all ages while at The Glade, from rocking on the porch to kayaking in the creek. Consequently it is ideal for family get togethers such as your's when being together is what it is all about

Now that you know how convenient to everything The Glade is, including an interstate exit, I hope you and your family will return to enjoy The Glade's charm and natural beauty again.

Best regards,

Jack

How blessed we were to find THE GLADE!

  • 5 of 5
There are not enough words to describe the beauty of The Glade. From the charming farmhouse to the beauty of the land surrounding it, our family did not want to leave. It was the perfect location for our daughter's college graduation. Friends and family were able to enjoy visiting with each other but also took advantage of the stream, meadows, etc.

Bill was a wonderful host. From sharing the details of the home, to sharing his kayaks, he was always available. The home has a well stocked kitchen. The beds were extremely comfortable - nice linens. Plenty of puzzles, books, etc. to occupy those needing such.

The home is convenient to shopping areas. . . IF you must have something. Personally, I would have never left. In fact, I volunteered to "house-sit" anytime the owner/caretaker need me - so if I go missing, my family will know where to look - THE GLADE!

Owner's Response: Amy,

I am so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at The Glade. From your review it seems many of the aspects that compelled me to buy this beautiful property in the first place, were appreciated as well by you.

All of us involved in The Glade, appreciate the fact that occaisions such as your's are lifetime events, and we do our best to make sure they are carefree and memorable for all the right reasons.

I think The Glade is perfect for events such as yours, and am sincerely happy that I can share with others who also appreciate it's attributes. The Glade with it's relaxed atmosphere and beautiful setting, along with multiple on property activities tends to keep everybody together, which of course is the reason for a "get together".

I will certainly keep in mind your house sitting offer, The Glade is beautiful in the Winter as well.

Thank you for your kind review.

Best regards,
Jack

Wonderful weekend at The Glade

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend away. Bill, the caretaker greeted us with organic squash and the kids had a ball picking three kinds of berries. There were also apples that became a delicious baked treat on our first night. The tranquil surroundings and well-equipped home was just what we were looking for. The creek was a popular spot for everyone. Bill provided us with the booklet containing the history of the house. We spent a good part of the morning exploring the 64 acres and finding the old structures listed on the maps. Highly recommend The Glade.

I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at the Glade! The house and the property are amazing and the pictures on your website do not do it justice. We had plenty of room for our crew. Bill was very helpful. If only mother nature had cooperated a little more and not rained quite so much! I will certainly reccommend the Glade to friends and family!

Map

Map

Car: necessary

Wytheville is at the crossroads of two major interstates, I-81 and I-77 and is known as 'The Crossroads of The Blue Ridge' located about halfway between Roanoke and Bristol, Virginia. The Glade is within easy driving distance of Jefferson National Forest, the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail, New River Trail State Park, Crystal Springs Recreation Area, and other outdoor activities. There are several wineries and vineyards nearby, along with the Wohlfahrt House Dinner Theater and the Log House Restaurant both in Wytheville which offer entertaining and interesting dining alternatives to the norm. However, most guests find themselves spending most at their time here actually on the property itself, as it has been described as a private park with Wi-Fi. The road that is shown crossing the creek on the Google map, is our entrance road and the bridge over to The Glade.
