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.

About Owner / Caretaker

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

Why Owner / Caretaker chose Wytheville

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.

What makes this farmhouse unique

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.

Tranquil getaway

As in the previous vacations here at The Glade, this visit was just as wonderful, peaceful, and rejuvenating!!! This place continues to be a special getaway for our family, never failing in amenities, captured moments, and warm, friendly visits from the wonderful caretakers, Bill and Chrissy! We hope to continue to come here in years to come and make many more cherished memories!! Thank you Jack, Bill and Chrissy for sharing such an amazing place for others to enjoy!!! Always a pleasure!!!! We are a family of five and stayed for 9 days. All of the essentials are here and convenient and the home and property are meticulously maintained and well loved!!!!

Great trip for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Glade when our extended family stayed in the early summer. The house was very clean which is sometimes hard in older renovated homes. We had 10+ staying and were comfortable although we rented the cabin too. The grounds were awesome and we enjoyed alot of long walks with the dogs.The kids had fun swinging on the rope over the creek in the back and playing in the water there. (though we did see a couple of snakes, so were on the lookout for those)

We really enjoyed conversations with Bill and learned alot about the grounds. He was always available but never intrusive. The deck on the back was large and we enjoyed dinner outside several evenings. We drove over to Hungry Mother State Park and had a nice day of swimming and hiking as well. It was a nice relaaxing long weekend getaway.

The only downside of the house for a large group is the 2 1/2 baths which must be shared, so you have to spread out showers. I would recommend the house as a great family vacation!

Owner's Response: Matt, I have always found The Glade to be a magical place as well, I am glad you feel the same. Sincerely, Jack

Fantastic place for family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 2 children, 6 and 9, and 2 dogs. The farmhouse and cottage were absolutely perfect for us. We had a great time. Some went whitewater rafting one day and we all went canoeing another day. We found plenty of fun things to do.

The house worked out very well for us. We love to fix big meals and eat together and the kitchen served us very well. Loved sitting on back deck to eat. Breakfast on the porch with rocking chairs every morning.

Kids and dogs enjoyed playing in creek.

Had a great bonfire one night and fixed s'mores.

Kids loved catching lightening bugs.

Big grassy area in front provided them with plenty of space to run and play.

Didn't watch TV even one minute.

Owner and caretaker very helpful.

Very clean.

Highly recommend!

Rock away your blues on a wrap-around porch

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion with 8 people staying through the bulk of the week. The rough news was that half of the week we endured a gully washer. The good news is that the house layout was comfortable for everybody to have his/her own space when they started getting on each other's nerves. The reason it didn't get a complete 5 star is because there is not central air throughout the house. (Just upstairs and then portable units downstairs.) Muggy, hot, rainy, and late August....we needed full air. But would we come back again???Absolutely. It's a beautiful farm that the owner has put considerable amount of time and energy into preservation of it's history.

Owner's Response: I am pleased you enjoyed your stay, however I am sorry that the weather was such that you didn't have an opportunity to fully enjoy the property as much as possible. As of November 2014 we have added an additional central air unit to take care of the downstairs for those rare hot spells. Sincerely, Jack

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.

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.
