About Ginger Mashe

We love the seclusion being in the woods and on the lake. We enjoy the lake and kayaking the rivers in the summer. We ride our horses when it's too cold for the water. I've had this land for 30 years and have enjoyed the serenity of this area. We are happy to share our piece of heaven with our guest.

Ginger Mashe purchased this house in 2000

Why Ginger Mashe chose Lynchburg

Private area with private boat dock access on Tims Ford Lake. In addition to being a safe recreational boating lake, Tim's Ford is an outstanding, year-round fishing lake for stripers and smallmouth bass. Its reputation for trophy striper and smallmouth fishing extends several hundred miles. Major bass and striper tournaments are held on the lake annually. The lake is also ideally suited for the angler that just wants to relax and catch a few catfish or bluegills. Mallard ducks, Canadian geese, bald eagles, deer, wild turkey, and other kinds of wildlife can be seen while boating on this beautiful 10,000 acre lake. Take a day and visit Jack Daniel's Distillery and have lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's. Bear Trace Golf Course is only 8 miles away.

What makes this house unique

Private, peaceful, never a dull moment unless you want it that way. Beautiful secluded hideaway. Whether enjoying the lake, downtown Lynchburg, touring Jack Daniel's, trout fishing on the Elk River, or just relaxing, it's a great place to getaway. We'll try to make your visit as comfortable as possible. If you need anything, we are here to give a helping hand.

My husband and I along with our best friends had our third stay at the property and we had a blast as was expected. Ginger and her family are always friendly and welcoming. The place is always clean and cozy. I would recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a nice romantic getaway, a girls or guys getaway, or anyone wanting to spend a lot of time on the beautiful Tims Ford Lake. The location and the set up are perfect for any plans you are making for yourself, your friends, or your family. Thank you, Ginger for another amazing vacation! We will see you next year!

Excellent property with many amenities

  • 5 of 5

Just minutes outside of Lynchburg, Ginger was an excellent and very attentive host. She’s always available, but gives you your space to enjoy the vacation. Loved being off the beaten path, but close enough to town to see everything we wanted. Very clean and spacious. Would definitely stay again if we are in the area.

Quintessential Mountain Getaway with Modern Conveniences

  • 5 of 5

This fully furnished vacation home is both modern and functional, but also beautiful and cozily tucked up into the mountains. We had the best time! I could of never imagined it would be so fun 😄🏠🌄💑💛

We can't wait to come back and bring our kids. This home is reasonably enough priced for a couples getaway and/or large enough to accommodate an entire family.

* satellite, full kitchen, jacuzzi, fire pit, front porch, plenty of space, hiking, water activities during appropriate seasons, grill.... easy navigation to Woodards Market, Lynchburg Square, and the Jack Daniel's Distillery
