In the FINAL STAGES - won't be long now!!! The Tiny ROSE COTTAGE IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Rose Cottage will be Glamping at it's finest. Tucked in the woods (about 100 yards in the woods behind our home) with a small kitchen-dining area and living area which converts into sleeping quarters at night with a nice, cozy futon. A bathroom with a full shower and portable toilet. It is perfect for 1 or 2 campers! The floors are of the finest pergo flooring and the interior is pine shiplap - you can't beat the fragrance of the wood when you step inside - just like being in a pine forest! There is space outside for others to pitch a tent. There is a small deck to take in the serenity of the national forest. A campfire ring is available with firewood supplied. We hope that you relax and enjoy!
When we get the cottage finished we hope to have a list of yummy local goodies available for purchase for your breakfast - eggs, local bacon or sausage, muffins, bread, homemade granola, etc. A local coffee shop is working with me on creating a special blend of coffee to offer our campers...to drink on site or to purchase a bag of beans to take home with you.
Available April through October. Collect fresh eggs from free-range chickens for your camp breakfast and enjoy other fine foods grown on the farm such as Cornish hens, free-range pastured chicken, quail, quail eggs, squab or rabbit. Add a bag of our farm made Poppy's Kettle Corn for dessert or to munch on around the campfire.
We have a nice little walking trail through our property to our small pond we built. We have stocked the pond with bass, catfish and bluegills. Last summer we had a drought and the pond nearly dried up, losing most of our fish. With the rains we've had this year our pond is full once again and we have re-stocked. We ask that you only catch and release at this time. We have two horses and would be glad to take our guests (one at a time) out on a guided trail ride from 20 minutes to an hour ride. We have a couple of kayaks for rent also.
After a great meal of farm raised products, step off the property into the George Washington National Forest to hike along the many trails or head over to Bryce Four Season Resort (only 4 miles away) for a full day of golfing, grass skiing, rock climbing, mountain biking, zip lines, snow skiing, snow boarding, tubing and many other activities. In addition, Lake Laura is also just 3 miles away for fishing, boating, hiking, beach and swimming. Shenandoah Valley Music Festival is just 4 miles away and offers a variety of outdoor concerts during the summer. At the end of your day clean up with our farm made goat milk soaps in a variety of scents.
Your stay at Rendezvous Farm, a 16-acre working hobby farm bordering George Washington National Forest on 2 sides, offers you over 1 million acres of public land to play in. We offer our 29 foot non-smoking motor home, for use on site only, from March thru October. It is located on the back edge of our yard bordering the national forest and sleeps 6. Hiking trails begin just 10 steps from the motor home!
Rendezvous Farm is also within an hour of several caverns, two civil war battlefields, the Shenandoah Civil War Museum and the North and South Forks of the Shenandoah River. The Appalachian Trail is a half hour drive from the farm. This area has much more to offer. Feel free to inquire about what interests you.
As a side note, there is no fridge in the tiny cottage...after all it is a tiny cottage :) If you do find a need for a fridge or freezer, we can probably accommodate your request. Please let us know!
