About the property

2 BR Restored 1930's Cottage - 10 Mins Bedford/25 Mins L'burg/45 mins R'oke

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.

Thank you for your consideration!

Breath-taking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains! Peacefulness and tranquility. Time to relax and renew! The cottage is convenient to shopping and local attractions, yet far enough away to maintain privacy.

Very nice little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The Quaint Cottage was a very nice cottage for the long weekend visit. It was nicely decorated and maintained. The space was perfectly comfortable for the two of us. We had a minor issue with the hot water heater but the owners were very diligent about getting it fixed quickly on a Sunday morning. The house sat on a little knoll, so provided pleasing views in all directions. Fresh farm raised eggs were already in the fridge when we arrived. We would be happy to return if our travels were to carry us back in their area.

Thank you, Lin and Phyllis

This was our second time staying at this cottage and Gail made sure that we had everything that we needed- from grilling supplies to flashlights. The fresh eggs were delicious too!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Sunset on the mountain view, breathtaking!

Cottage is cute and neatly, prefect for a couple or small family vacation.

The owner Gail would leave you some fresh eggs for breakfast, the goat would love you to pat him, the cat always come around and wish to play with you, the doggies exciting to meet you, they are all lovely. ^^

Reading on the front porch at 3pm, feel the wind blowing... you would have a wonderful afternoon.

Love this place, would go back again one day.

Quiet and Peaceful! Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cottage. The cottage itself was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. There were gorgeous views of the mountains from the back deck. It was such a peaceful getaway for my family. This cottage was on a farm with goats and chickens. We loved being so close to the animals. We loved the goats, Monkey & Moonlight, as well as all the chickens. My daughter spent hours playing with them. The owners were nice enough to let her feed them. We especially loved Gracie, the gorgeous Calico cat who came to see us every day. The owner gave us farm fresh eggs from the chickens, which we enjoyed every morning for breakfast.

While we were there, we did some sight seeing also. There is a lot to do in this area! We went to Poplar Forest (Thomas Jefferson's retreat house), the Natural Bridge Park, which was a lot of fun and had a really nice gift shop too. While we were over there, we drove through the Animal Safari, which we all loved! We went to Appomattox Court House, which was a fun and educational experience. We also took our daughter to the Amazement Square, a children's museum in Lynchburg. We spent some time in Bedford too, which was a cute little town, with some great restaurants. Our favorites were Liberty Station and Town Kitchen & Provisions.

Overall, this was a wonderful cottage in a beautiful part of the country! I highly recommend staying here.

Nice Private Location

  • 5 of 5

Gail supplied us with everything a person could need. ( and a nice basket with Champagne to celebrate our anniversary- quite thoughtful!) The House is clean as a pin and the view is wonderful. Close to town and outdoor activities. My wife and I stayed at the cottage for two nights. We had a great time and felt at home. The cottage is neat and well taken care of. This location offers privacy, views, and access to some nice restaurants. Do check out the Millstone Tea Room if you can! All of this for the price of a mediocre hotel room. Quite a deal!
