About the Property 

Five Dogs Farm is a 14-acre homestead where we raise American Alpine Dairy Goats, Hereford and Belted Galloway Cattle, Katahdin and Barbados Black Belly Sheep, chickens, guineas and peacocks. Our beloved Great White Pyrenees keep our farm safe from nocturnal predators. We have had this farm for 27 years and love to share it with others. We especially love to teach about our animals, which include goats, sheep, chickens, peacocks, and guineas. 

Nearby hiking can be found at Crabtree Falls and Mount Pleasant, or explore Montebello Fishing Resort for trout. Other great swimming spots can be found at Mill Creek Lake and Panther Falls, which also have rocks you can jump off of into the water. If you feel like rafting, look no further than James River. 

As for breweries and wineries, take your pick from Devils Backbone Brewing, Blue Ridge Brewery, Rebec Winery, Virginia Distillery. When fruit picking is in season, head over to Morris Orchard and Seaman's Orchard.

If you need to stock up on supplies, the town of Amherst, VA is only 10 minutes away where you can access CVS, gas, market, and restaurants. 

About the Listing

The Cottage is a charming, two-story space for Glamping (glamor camping). It provides privacy, nature, farm animals grazing, deer leaping, a small winding creek, hammocks, and fire pit. The 'simple pump' gives delicious and pure water. There is no electricity so candles and oil lamps light the inside for a romantic getaway. Four air mattresses are provided with a cover for each. Bring sleeping bags! The cottage is heated by a charming wood stove. Wood is abundant in the forest or bring your own! We do have axes and saws available to use at your own risk. We ask that you be extremely careful with these tools.

While campers should bring their own plates, utensils, and towels we do offer cast iron pans for cooking outside as well as marshmallow forks. A few coffee cups and wine glasses are also provided.  French press coffee maker and ground coffee are provided. Tea bags are provided.
