All that we expected and more!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home and property were all that we expected and more. We had an amazing and peaceful weekend at the Rock house. The location is beautiful; with panoramic and breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the front porch. From the back of the house, you over look acres of open fields that butt up to the woods. We watched the deer come into the fields each day to feed, spent time exploring a trail we found in the woods, and after viewed the stars through our telescope. (This property provides an excellent location for star gazers).

The home provides the feel of a cozy old farm house, with all the modern amenities. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals. The covered front porch provides a nice gas grill and an outdoor table and chairs, so you can eat out and enjoy the beautiful views.

It is conveniently located close to so many local attractions, hiking trails, etc; but provides the feeling that you are a million miles from anywhere, in the middle of the mountains. We will definitely being booking another stay here in the future.

Perfect Stay at the Baileys

  • 5 of 5

Loved every moment of our equestrian stay at the Baileys! Minutes to TIEC, a lovingly restored original home & the perfect hosts who left all the lights on knowing my middle of the night arrival with my girls made for the perfect equestrian stay. Not to be forgotten, the thoughtful welcome gift of delicious homemade banana nut bread and coffee which I enjoyed every morning on the front porch. Can't wait to return! Thank you again for sharing your home.

Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this home away from home. Clean, spacious, full amenities and gracious owners. The type of place I wish I could live year-round! The views and sunsets are gorgeous. One of the nicest places I have ever been. Peaceful country setting.

Charming and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay we hated to leave! If you are looking for charm and comfort, accompanied by a stunning mountain views and peaceful quiet, this is the place for you. Plus the location was ideal for visiting the horse park - an easy 10 minute drive. Looking forward to a return visit!
