When staying at The Old Church Cottage, you can relax in our hammock, grill in the back yard, fish in the nearby Rapidan or Rose Rivers or hike the Old Rag, White Oak and other close trails.

The space
The Cottage Atmosphere

The Old Church Cottage is a unique home filled with love and memories and equipped with a modern kitchen, charcoal grill, heat and air conditioning, TV & DVD, Stereo, WiFi and washer/dryer.

It began in 1900 as a Mennonite church. Our family purchased the cottage from friends who restored the Cottage to its current modern state. They worked hard to preserve the original rustic charm -- while having modern conveniences. We enjoy visiting this property as it is a relaxing getaway from everyday life. New to the Cottage is WiFi, allowing us to communicate with friends and family and find the trails we want to hike right from our cozy setting.

The Cottage is a retreat designed to help us and our guests enjoy the landscape and environment. On a quiet street in a sparsely populated and quiet neighborhood, it is common to see people on horseback clomping down the street. Our neighbors next door and across the street are friendly and helpful.

The Cottage features one bedroom with a queen bed and a loft with a queen and four twin beds. It is perfect for a family or group of close friends. We have enjoyed trips with our adult children as well as "girl wine weekends" and "boy beer weekends" with friends.

Where you’ll be

Syria, Virginia, United States

A retreat from the modern world, a trip to the The Old Church Cottage is like stepping back in time. On a quiet street in a sparsely populated and quiet neighborhood, it is common to see people on horseback clomping down the street. Our neighbors next door and across the street are friendly and helpful.

The Cottage is less than a mile from Graves Mountain Lodge, which serves three family-style meals per day by reservation. Guests can go horseback riding, visit the farm animals at Graves farm, and sign up for a Friday or Saturday night hayride. Within a few miles of the Cottage are two of Virginia's most popular hikes, White Oak Canyon and Old Rag.

DuCard Winery is 3 miles northeast, Revalation is 7 miles east and Early Mountain Vineyard is 13 miles south. Many other wineries, breweries and distilleries are a short drive away. Antique shopping abounds in the area. Nearby waterways are popular with anglers. We have prepared a detailed directory of the local sights, restaurants, and activities for our guests. Check out our Guidebooks on the Airbnb listing as well as our hard copy items in the Cottage itself.

My husband and I are empty-nesters. We love visiting areas where we can be outdoors as well as visit historic sites and museums. We enjoy cooking and being with our family and friends when we travel. Staying in homes is the perfect solution. Some of our favorite destinations include The Grand Canyon, Philadelphia, The Eastern Shore and even Oxford, England. We bought the Old Church Cottage from friends after spending several wonderful weekends there. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
