It's time for stargazing and views on rooftop deck. Our big house is minutes from where the Blue Ridge Parkway meets Skyline Drive and Rockfish Valley's 5 wineries, 3 breweries, cidery and distillery. Our site offers pastoral views and hikes in the forest on our 70 acres near the Shenandoah Valley. You’ll be learning about this straw-bale constructed eco-centric home. Our free range hens provide fresh eggs for your optional $9 full breakfast. Our home is good for couples and solo adventurers!

Our beautiful big home keeps us busy and we love inviting others to share this space and relax here with us. Our two children grew up in this house from age 5 and are now out sharing their good deeds and wonder in the world. So we're proud parents with much to share.
