Chestnut Hills Cottage is a Romantic Retreat for two! Our mountain retreat is the perfect escape from city life. Located on 40 private acres just a few miles from the Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive. This charming cabin has been lovingly restored by owners Alun and Norma Ward. You'll find peace and quiet and all the conveniences of modern life, including quality linens, wifi and a hot tub under the stars. We invite you to experience the charm of our Blue Ridge Mountain Cottage!

The space
This cottage is located near the site of an old mountain homestead. It was located here due to the ever flowing spring located in the valley below. The subsistence mountain farm which was located here fell into ruins in the late 1800s. Many of the old stone walls and the ruins of a small barn are located just below the cottage.
For many years a rough, smaller cottage was on this site. In the late 1990s Alun and Norma, owners of the adjacent property, were able to acquire this beautiful, mostly wooded valley and begin plans for Chestnut Hills Cottage. The original cottage was renovated and enlarged, decks built, and hot tub installed. Alun did most of the work on the cottage himself, along with help from family and summer students.
While the cottage is surrounded by two acres of lawn, the balance of the property is mature forest with Blue Run, a mountain stream below in the valley.
We are located in the center of Virginia Wine Country and 4 miles from the eastern boundary of Shenandoah National Park.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire building and forty acres of Blue Ridge Mountainside.

Our cottage is located on the last property on a one mile long private road. This 40 acre property provides a completely private setting for Chestnut Hills Cottage. The views to the east are of the Barboursville mountains, 25 miles away. Views to the west are of Powell Mountains and the valley which leads down to our spring and creek. While we live on the adjacent property, about 1/4 mile away, we rarely see our guests, but we are close by if needed.
