About Owner / Property Manager
This home belonged to my grandparents. They owned and operated a general store on one side and lived and raised my mother and her 2 siblings on the other side. I grew up roaming these mountains and am proud to have been raised in such a beautiful place. Every Sunday after church, we drove over the mountains and through the woods, to grandmothers house we went. My family has history in Shady Valley going back over 200 years. I could not stand the thought of this amazing place, just sitting there. My only sister died Jan 4th 2015 - my life crumbled. I retreated to the mountains. I was saved by renovating The Shady House. I poured my grief into every blister, splinter, debt, sweat and after a year, I feel I have worked enough to start enjoying life again. Now, it is important for me to show as many people as I can just how theraputic the mountains can be.
Why Owner / Property Manager chose Shady Valley
Location is perfect for so many different activities. Fisherman can find an abundance of fishing. Fish is the one of the 2 large mountain bordered lakes, and rivers rivers everywhere! Close to The Virginia Creeper Trail, Bristol Motor Speedway, Rafting, Outdoor Adventures OF EVERY KIND all around you. Shopping and dining only a 30 minute drive from the seclusion.
What makes this House unique
Best for Large Families or Small Groups under 20. Formerly a home on one side and a general store on the other, this very large open space has been completely renovated to serve mountain tourists. Over an acre of flat yard space offers a gaming net, fire pit, horse shoes, corn hole, and several tables, chairs and benches. The surrounding views of the joining three mountain ranges, add to the perfection of this unique property.

We loved it!!
My family had a great weekend!! The house was perfect for us. Kate had everything there we could need or want! When she said "just bring your clothes and food", she meant it. The game room and ping pong table were a big hit with our family. We did the Creeper Trail while we stayed here, which is nice and close! We will definitely be visiting again.
Thank you Lisa! I am so lucky to host such great guests. Thanks for leaving the house so clean. I will see you guys again soon !
Great place for a large family and beautiful, mountain area!
Kate was so friendly and helpful throughout the planning process and even during our stay. The house has a lot of space for larger families and/or kids. House has a nice layout with a large, open area for entertainment. The house was also in very close proximity to several desired locations for biking, hiking, shopping, sightseeing, etc. We had a great experience at the Shady House!
What a wonderful family to host! They kept in touch and left the house in perfect condition! Thank you for the kind note in the journal.
Great rental for large groups
This rental is fantastic for large groups. The owner goes above and beyond to make your stay as memorable as possible.
Thank you for always keeping the house so clean! Great family to work with!
I adored the location and Kate was absolutely wonderful!!! I would totally book again as it works for the perfect writing retreat or family vacation.
Thank you! I enjoyed having your family. Wonderful people that left the house so clean that I could hardly tell anyone had been there!
This property is in a nice setting. It is peaceful but within 40 minutes of several things to do!
Very clean. Great place for a large family. Nice game room, plenty of beds, large yard, game equipment. Wonderful host, as well!
Thank you for leaving the house in such a clean condition. This outdoor oasis features many activities within 5 to 20 minutes from the house. For big city attractions, the beautiful drive through the mountains makes the 40 minute drive an adventure! I am so happy you got to enjoy the peaceful area. Thanks for being great guests!
Shady Valley Spectacular
Loved our long weekend stay at the Shady House. The house itself had everything we needed including a great open space for the kids to run and play. And if the large inside area wasn’t enough, there is also a huge flat yard where we played everything from croquet to volleyball. My favorite part, however, was watching the sun set on one mountain range while the moon rose over another one. In addition, Kate was fantastic to work with and did an amazing job communicating with us before, during and after our stay. I would highly recommend staying at the Shady House and I hope to come back soon.
The Virginia Creeper Trail in Damascus, VA - just 15 minutes from the home through a beautiful country scenic drive.
