Get away from it all in the beautiful Blue Ridge foothills. Unplug & enjoy the airy layout, hardwood floors, spa tub & rustic deck-with-a-view in this simple but well-appointed house. Hiking, dining, culture & history are all within an easy drive.
The watchword is "peace" in this simple yet comfortable private home with an enormous sun-filled living room and eat-in kitchen, ample sleeping space, and full laundry facilities, all on the upper floor of this two-level house. This flexible space is equally suitable for a writing retreat or a mini family reunion.
Guests are granted full and sole access to the upper floor of this home only, as described above. There are no shared amenities or access.
The home is only available when not being used by the family, so interaction with your hosts is limited to internet and telephone. However, a family member is always reachable by phone or text.
This is a true off-the-grid getaway without internet access or big-screen t.v.--or, in fact, any t.v. or internet service at all. (If you want movies, bring them on your laptop!) This is a rustic country get-away (not even a microwave), and a chance to disconnect from electronic noise! There are multiple books, a few board games, and a gracefully aging upright piano. Be warned that Sperryville's cellphone service can be extremely spotty. Beds: 2 double beds, 1 double fold-out couch. The beds consist of mattresses on top of box springs. The bed in the front bedroom measures 12"from the floor and the one in the middle bedroom is 18" from the floor. Some guests have found it more comfortable to place the fold-out couch mattress on the floor, which is certainly an option. There is also a somewhat compromised fold-out foam couch (another double) in the living room which works well for kids.
Smoking is not permitted in or near the house. Pets are welcome, with specific permission. If you would like to bring a pet, please notify us beforehand. We have a no-shoes in the house policy.
Erica is a pediatric endocrinologist--and, newly, a yoga instructor. She and her sisters Rachel and Sandra spend as much time as they can in Rappahannock, using the house their mother left them either as a solitary haven, or for family gatherings with their grown and growing children. They invite you to experience the special magic in this place that draws them back again and again.
