About Mary Wilson Lovelady

This home was built by my grandparents in 1904. I lived there in my childhood and then restored the family home years later.

Why Mary Wilson Lovelady chose Shenandoah Valley

Although this home has been renovated, I kept many of the original features that carry guests back in time. For example, some ceilings are constructed of wormy chestnut wood; the stairs are narrow; the pantry ceiling is lower. Several antique furniture pieces remain there for your enjoyment. Truly, many guests have called this house 'charming.'

What makes this farmhouse unique

When I visit The Wilson House, my favorite spots include a fire pit area in the back yard, the front porch swing, the front yard's deck, and a cool spot under a huge sugar maple tree in the front yard.

Our Family Favorite

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been coming to the Wilson House for years. Perched on a hill with a splendid view of the Alleghenies, this getaway provides the comforts of home with the feeling of timelessness. Whether you catch the breeze while nestled with a good book on the porch, hike up the mountain behind the house, cycle on the back roads, or watch the sunset while savoring a meal on the deck, everything feels unhurried and peaceful. We always hate to leave and always vow to return.

A week of bliss

  • 5 of 5

High on a hill, nestled in green meadows -- the Wilson House is so quiet and peaceful! You're not far from all the attractions of Monterey and Warm Springs, but the serenity begins the moment you turn into the lane. Wind up the hill and there's the charming farmhouse. Step inside -- all is bright and breezy, shiny and clean, clean, clean. Mary has provided for your every comfort and convenience. Open the windows and let in the fresh country air. Relax on the swing on the front porch -- watch the chipmunks and listen to the birds sing. Cook up a feast in the amazingly well-equipped kitchen. Explore the meadows and woods of the 80-acre property. Be astonished by the Milky Way shining in the dark, dark sky! And just to make it all even more perfect -- there's Wifi! We loved everything about our week at the magical Wilson House! Heartfelt thanks to our kind and gracious hostess!

Restful and lovely

Open views and relaxing environment.

A great yard for painting and playing games in. The house seems to invite storytelling and sharing.

Checked in and "Checked out"

  • 5 of 5

We love the Wilson House! When we arrive we know that the time we spend there is filled with beautiful views, hiking, biking, fishing, bonfires, crazy made up yard games and so much more. We love our time without cellular service and although we now appreciate a little wifi here and there, we take full advantage of the "unplugging" we all get to recharge our minds. While the house is historic, its comfortable and clean. Our time at the Wilson House is not really about the hosue as it is about the time spent together in an insanely beautiful and peaceful place.
