This 2 bedroom 1 bath cottage is located on one of Bedford's most beautiful and well known country roads, Fancy Farm Road. There are 3 houses within sight but not close enough to impede privacy as this cottage is located past a huge old lovely dairy barn, that is part of the property, and down a long gravel driveway - surrounded by woods and pasture.
If you enjoy sitting on the deck, overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains, watching the wildlife, listening to the birds, then our cottage may be just right for you. Additionally, we have 3 goats named Moonlight, Chipmunk and Monkey, as well as chickens that when laying, may just provide you with farm fresh eggs! We have 3 outdoor cats, who are our farm mousers, and may visit you on the back porch when you're there.
Our cottage is fully furnished and sleeps 4 people very comfortably. Bedroom 1 has a queen sized bed. Bedroom 2 has a full and in necessary, a twin trundle bed. The bathroom is located off Bedroom 1.
Kitchen amenities include a full sized refrigerator and electric range, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, small appliances, including a microwave and coffee pot. A washer/dryer is also included.
The living room has comfortable seating and a tv with digital antenna that offers 20 channels, DVD player and beautiful barn views. Unlimited wifi is available. Redbox is available at the Food Lion 5 minutes away and in addition, we have a varied supply of DVDs from which to choose.
Fresh bed linens and towels are also provided. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, pots/pans, coffee pot, toaster, and many of the conveniences of home.
The front porch has rocking chairs for enjoying that morning cup of coffee and the back deck has tables and chairs that overlook the Blue Ridge Mountains. This old cottage is located on what was once a thriving dairy farm and has been updated with central heat and air. It's possible that cows may be grazing in the fenced pasture behind the house.
Enjoy photography or taking great pictures? There's an old dairy barn on the property that would make an amazing backdrop for some wonderful family portraits!
The Peaks of Otter and beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains are 15 mins away where you can enjoy hiking or dining at the Lodge. A short 10 minute drive will take you into the historical town of Bedford, where there are retail establishments, such as Walmart, Food Lion, etc.
Bedford is the home to the National D-Day Memorial. Really great restaurants, such as Olde Liberty Station, Town Kitchen, Azul Mexican, and Bedford Social Club are among a few of the great restaurants within a 10 minute drive. There are also popular chains such as Ruby Tuesday, Applebees, Subway, McDonald's, and Wendy's.
Smith Mountain Lake and the SML State Park is a 30 minute drive where you can enjoy swimming, fishing and even bring your own boat for a day on the water. Lynchburg is 25 minutes away and Roanoke is only 45 minutes away.
Located along the banks of the James River, Lynchburg offers a variety of attractions including Thomas Jefferson's retreat called Poplar Forest, a revitalized downtown with fantastic restaurants and a variety of shops, along with a bustling Community Market on the weekends. Additionally, recreation offers tubing on the James River; biking and walking on the James River Heritage Trail; Amazement Square Museum for kids; the Old City Cemetery and Museum that is a Virginia Historic Landmark; and Liberty Mountain Snowflex Center Year for year round skiing, snowboarding and tubing, just to name a few.
Lynchburg is known for 3 colleges - Liberty University,
Randolph College, and Lynchburg College. Sweet Briar College is not far away in nearby Amherst County.
Whether you're a couple looking to get away from it all, or parents of 2 children looking to retreat to the mountains and stay on a farm for the weekend, we think you'll enjoy your stay at our cottage.
Please know that we are a smoke free property - both inside of the cottage and anywhere on the property. Additionally, we do not allow hunting or shooting (skeet, target, etc.) of any kind on our property.
