The Ridge is a natural wood, rustic timber-constructed, saltbox design with wide oak floors, a balcony bedroom, cathedral ceiling, and a wrap-around deck. The views are spectacular from the interior and from the deck! There are wooded hiking trails on the property which lead to a picnic table in a forest. Mountain streams, swimming, fishing, golfing, and historic sightseeing are all close by. Quiet and peaceful, the Ridge is the perfect place for a couple to relax and recharge.
Conveniently located near Lexington VA: You would think you were many miles out in the country but in fact The Ridge is less than 3 miles from the city limits of historic Lexington Virginia. Home of Washington and Lee University, Virginia Military Institute, and the Virginia Horse Center, Lexington has many historic and other sites of interest. Two 'must see' sites are Natural Bridge of Virginia, one of the seven natural wonders of the world located 20 miles south, and Goshen Pass, a beautiful mountain river with picnic facilities and swimming holes located 15 miles west. Both Universities have civil war museums. The Virginia Horse Center holds many equestrian competitions and shows throughout the year.
Hiking trails: There are two hiking trails on the property, both leading to a picnic location with table. One leads into a mature forest. The other climbs to a hill top clearing with a breathtaking view.
The Ridge is easily accessible by car over paved county roads and a gentle well maintained gravel driveway.
