This log house was completed in 2005 and when you first walk in, it still smells like the pine wood it was made from. It is located on 15 peaceful, wooded acres, overlooks over 850 acres of additional farm land with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance; the property does border both Hamilton and Leesburg for convenience, each about 5 minutes away.

'Windridge' is furnished with family antiques and artwork but has all the modern conveniences for your complete comfort as well. It has a combined living/dining/kitchen area with a huge fireplace. Off this central area is a separate den and screen porch which both have closing doors for privacy. The master bedroom has a king bed and it's own private bath on the first floor; with all of it's windows it feels like you're in a tree house! There are two additional bedrooms upstairs, one with 2 twins and the other with a queen bed.

This house is located in the country, but Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD are a reasonable day trip from here. Within a shorter drive is the Leesburg Corner Outlet with great, popular discount stores, many historical buildings, Civil War attractions, wineries and many parks are all also very popular year round.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our second visit has been as relaxing and refreshing as the first... And, with more days, we had time to do the walking tour of historic Leesburg (so interesting), a leasurely lunch at Magnolia in Purcellville (delicious) and another fabulous dinner at Tuscarora..."

Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family wanted to visit local historic sites during the April school vacation. I found Winbridge after reviewing several other houses in the region. The house is in a secluded yet only minutes to town location. The house is spacious, clean and the owner is very accommodating. Whether you want to make day trips from the home or stay and enjoy the rural setting, you will not be disappointed. Kaki, thanks for having us and we will return again. Matt

Owner's Response: Matt: You, your wife and boys were some of the most courteous and respectful of the families we have had at Windridge. I am so glad your boys enjoyed the log house atmosphere and that you all were able to use it as a 'hub' for excursions to nearby sites. There is much to do in the area, but as you hint to, it's challenging to leave the comforts right there, especially the screened porch. Please come again and we will offer you a 'returning guest' discount. Hope your summer has some relaxation in it! :) Kaki

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was in Leesburg for a school Principal's conference and my colleagues and I found Windridge to be exactly as advertised and more. We really enjoyed being off the beaten path. The property is very quiet and spacious with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the Va countryside. The drive to and from the property was tranquil and convenient. Daily walks/runs were thoroughly enjoyed and followed by some downtime on the wonderful porch. We all especially enjoyed the conveniences of the kitchen, making a full breakfast everyday before heading off to work was a real treat!

Hamilton Charm

  • 5 of 5

Our family was just looking for a nice house to spend a couple of nights with our son who is through hiking the Appalachian Trail. Windridge was more than perfect. Well equipped kitchen that enabled us to cook up some great meals. Fabulous porch where we ate our meals and listened to tunes looking out over the woods. Space to gather together and also space to spread out. Kaki - thanks for responding to our quick requests. Many thanks.

Owner's Response: So enjoyed having your family at Windridge! Leesburg is where guests usually are attracted, to its history and shops, but you found those lovely characteristics in Hamilton too, along with a couple of fun and different places to eat. We are glad your family liked the log 'cabin' and hope your son's travels along the remaining Appalachian Trail are safe and full of wonderful memories. Thank you again for your business and the "TLC" you showed our house; if you return, you would receive a returning guest discount.

Off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

To call :Windridge" a log cabin is to call pate "meatloaf". It may look like a log cabin outside, but inside, it is furnished with charm & sophistication. Every bedroom has a bath nearby & the master suite is huge, with a marvelous shower.

You'll feel at home in the living room or full dining room. The kitchen has everything you could ever need. There are porches all around the outside to enjoy. The limited WIFI should only be a hindrance to those who are surgically attached to their electronics.

There is much to see in the area: wineries, farm breweries, good restaurants, historic Oatlands Plantation,charming towns like Leesburg & Middleburg, Leesburg outlets & the beautiful Loudoun hunt country.

We have stayed here at least 3 times & intend to return. If you visit in the fall, you may see deer & wild turkeys in your front yard, eating ripe paw-paws.

Owner's Response: Such a wonderful description of our GEM! Thank you for the whimsical, yet quite accurate, illustration of all the amenities at the house and surrounding area. You have always been fun guests, truly appreciating adventure and relaxation. Hope you continue your investigations here next year; it's such fun to have repeat guests that explore! Thank you again for the thoughtful review!!

great luxury home base for vineyards

  • 5 of 5

highly recommend, would stay again, excellent communication from owner. Our group of 5 adults stayed for a long weekend and made wind ridge our home base for wine country 1/2 marathon. We all had plenty of room, the well appointed kitchen was great for meal prep; location made the trip in and out of DC easy. Wegmans is nearby and a great supermarket for provisions. The house is better than the pictures can relate, very relaxing secluded woodland setting.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you and your good friends unite from great distances at Windridge. From the beginning, you all were such an easy group to host; you were not offended by the questions I asked, saw the ‘big picture’ for the reasoning behind them and offered detailed information about your desired gathering; you kept in good contact before, during and after your stay; all around a delightful group who treated Windridge as if it was their own. Thank you for your business and if you are ever in the area again, we offer a discount to returning guests!

Owner's Response: As a mother myself, it was lovely to receive your request for a mother-daughter weekend. Then to find out it was 2 sisters and their daughters, coming together from 4 different states, I was enthralled at the determination to keep the tradition going with these endearing relationships. Bravo! I was happy to have you all at Windridge and your attention to it's offerings and conscientiousness were greatly appreciated. Thank you and I hope you have a great time next year, wherever you decide to reconnect!
