The Granary is a charming 2BR/1.5BA getaway nestled in the mountains just minutes from Lexington, VA. It provides a unique and pastoral setting on a historic 100 acre farm. Perfect for up to 6 guests. Idyllic location in the Shenandoah Valley.

The space
The Granary at Owl Moon Farm was originally constructed in the early 1900's and was operated for many years as part of a turn-of-the-century farm. It was completely renovated in 2006 to provide all of the modern comforts and conveniences of a mountain farm retreat, but with its exposed, hand-hewn beams, rough sawn boards, and broad expanses of windows, it retains a unique and historic charm all its own.

The Granary comfortably sleeps six people. There are two bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed plus, in the great room, there is a queen-size sleeper sofa in addition to a sleeping nook with a twin-sized daybed.

One bedroom is located downstairs with an antique queen-sized platform bed, luxury bedding, walk in closet, reading nook and direct access to the private rear deck. The other bedroom is privately located upstairs and features a four poster queen-size bed with luxury linens, antique dressers and walk-in closet.

There is a very comfortable queen-size sleeper sofa located in the great room. The sleeper sofa has an extra thick mattress and luxury bedding to ensure a comfortable night's sleep - even for adults!

The twin sized day bed with memory foam mattress is located in a sleeping alcove of the great room and is great for kids.

If you are traveling with an infant, we can also provide a crib with an organic cotton mattress and sheets - just give us a few days advanced notice.

Located on the main floor, the full bathroom features a one-of-a-kind shower/tub combination, antique marble sink, radiant panel heating and a high efficiency washer and dryer.

The kitchen is large, bright and fully equipped with a coffee maker, toaster, microwave and gas range. We provide locally roasted gourmet coffee, an assortment of teas, creamers and sweeteners, including local organic honey. There is a sun-filled dining nook with views of two of the smaller pastures and an historic barn from the built-in seating under the antique bay windows.

The living area is a spacious great room with vaulted 20' ceilings and original exposed post and beams. Free WiFi, Smart TV, Blu-ray player, DVD collection, numerous games, puzzles and books are also provided.

The spacious and private deck overlooks a rock-strewn stream. There is a stainless steel gas grill for your use and plenty of seating for relaxing, star-gazing and listening to the calls of the many owls that make their home in the surrounding forest.

Location: The Granary is nestled on the southern slope of Hogback Mountain between two ridges and is privately situated on a 100 acre working farm with barns, woods, fields and meadows. Besides the sheep, goats and chickens, our farm is home to abundant wildlife including turkey, grouse, deer, bear, hawks and numerous regional and migrating birds. The Granary is perfectly situated to serve as your home base as you explore the Shenandoah Valley and area attractions. It is only 15 minutes from the Virginia Horse Center and just 9 miles from downtown historic Lexington, Washington & Lee University and the Virginia Military Institute. The Humphrey's Gap entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway is approximately 25 minutes away via US 60.

Becky, Tripp and their children live on the farm, but The Granary is secluded from the main house.

We love the pastoral seclusion of our farm. However, we are less than 15 minutes from the historic city of Lexington where there are several fine dining restaurants, excellent diners and cafes and even a couple of local coffee roasters and microbreweries. We feel very fortunate to be a part of a thriving small American town and community.

This property cannot accommodate parties or large groups.

Guest access
Guests have full access to The Granary and the private deck and yard. There is designated parking right in front and overflow parking is just 75 feet away. Feel free to walk around and explore the farm and its animals.

Other things to note
The Granary is located on a working farm. Please be careful of the electrified fencing and netting located throughout the property.

The Granary has a unique bathroom setup - there are two "bathrooms." One contains an antique marble sink, a unique tub/shower combination and a washer and dryer. The other bathroom is a half bath with a toilet and sink. From May to October, there is an also an outside shower with hot and cold water and a shower curtain.
