Unplug. Unwind. Refresh. Located at the foothills of the iconic Peaks of Otter in Bedford County, the Sanctuary Farm & Retreat Center boasts 17 acres of tranquility, magnificent views and the cozy farmhouse environment to refresh your soul. Perfect for vacation, intensive class at Liberty Univ, romantic getaway, or personal retreat with an option for on-site life coaching. This 500 sq ft suite with private entrance and full kitchen is close enough to town and a short commute to Lynchburg.

The space
A 500 sq. foot Sanctuary suite with private entrance gives you room to spread out, breathe and take in the beauty of the countryside yet is close enough to town for amenities and a short commute to Lynchburg, the urban hub of the region.

Enjoy sunsets over the Peaks of Otter, walks around the 2 acre pond or sitting in the gazebo sipping a cup of coffee or your favorite wine. It features a full eat-in kitchen with butcher block counter top, stove, antique farmhouse sink, Keurig coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator. Central air provides for your comfort in winter or summer. A beautifully tiled shower, bedroom with queen bed and closet and living room with sofa and comfy chair give you all you need to get away for a bit. A gazebo with stunning views gives you outdoor dining options as well a chance to breathe in nature and exhale out stress.

ACTIVITIES

-Walk, Hike and Play
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” John Muir

Whether you choose to just take a stroll around the pond or the gravel drive or drive a short 10 minutes to hike the bountiful trails at the Peaks of Otter, The Sanctuary is a walking and hiking enthusiasts dream.

A five minute drive to the town of Bedford provides dining options, shopping for the antique lover and the D-Day Memorial for history buffs and veterans.

-Think, Dream and Pray
"There is nothing like a dream to create the future." -Victor Hugo

Need to get away from the “noise” of your everyday life? Sanctuary provides the space and serenity to think, dream, pray and……listen. Sleep in late, take a stroll around the property, sip wine by the fire pit and listen to the tree frogs. Even if you want to stay in your pajama’s your entire stay, we’ve got books, board games and solitude for you.
Optional: Each day, the hosts can provide you with an inspiring note and question that sets the table for you to maximize your thinking and expand your mind to possibilities. ($10 extra a day for notes and questions)

-OPTIONAL-
Contemplate and Create with a Certified Coach on Site
"What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action." -Meister Eckhart

Your host at the Sanctuary is a certified Leadership & Life Purpose Coach and is ready to meet you if you desire. Providing a safe, non-judgmental environment, you can engage with Christine to help you think through and process a variety of issues including your calling, life goals, leadership, connecting or re-connecting with God or work issues while taking a brisk walk around the farm or just sitting in the gazebo looking at the ripples on the pond or the majesty of the mountains. This experience includes two nights lodging, two coaching sessions and contemplative questions so you leave with clarity or a plan to thrive in life. ($150 extra for a two night stay)

Guest access
Guests have access to the Sanctuary suite, which includes a full kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. They may enjoy the backyard, pond, gazebo, and acres of our property. Guests may park in front of the sanctuary suite.

Other things to note
It is important to note that the Sanctuary is a place to unwind and unplug. We hope it's an opportunity to slow down, enjoy nature, and dream big. For that reason, we do not have wifi. Guests are welcome to use a mobile hot spot, or if an emergency or need arises, guests can contact us about using a temporary hot spot.

The Sanctuary is also a working farm, so don't be alarmed if you hear the cows mooing or the sounds of a tractor.

Animal lover. Certified Leadership & Life Purpose coach. Non-profit executive. I leave my fulfilling day job in the city and drive home to our farm. This is where I exhale. I thrive off of helping others find peace, purpose and passion in their personal and professional lives. My husband and I share our Sanctuary property with others so they can experience what we have experienced here......the tranquility, the beauty and the opportunity to leave the noise of life. If you stay here, expect to de-plug. Expect a working farm environment with cows as neighbors and chirping tree frogs as your bedtime song. If you enjoy conversation and fellowship with your hosts, we welcome that or we can totally leave you alone. What we love: God, family, friends. Great food. Time in nature. Each other.
