Sawmill Cottage near Shenandoah National Park


We are located in the heart of Madison County on scenic route 231 near Old Rag Mountain and White Oak Canyon in Shenandoah National Park.

This charming cottage sits on a half-acre and is part of a 120-acre working farm. We have miles of walking paths or sit by the pond and enjoy a glass of wine or craft beer from one of our locals; Shotwell Run, DuCard or Revalation. Our little farm store offers Animal Welfare Approved meats, cheeses, eggs, seasonal fruits and veggies and locally made products.

The cottage was a local sawmill when it was built back in the 1950s. This one-bedroom cottage has a built-in King size bed with luxurious linens, a ceiling fan and TV with DVD player. The living room has an exposed heart pine ceiling, small office area with Wi-Fi, landline telephone, full size memory foam leather futon with linens, which is ideal for one adult or children, ceiling fan, large screen TV and DVD player, dining table, small free library as well as board games. Outdoors you can enjoy an evening at the firepit overlooking pastural and mountain views, sit on the covered porch or cook up something on the charcoal grill. You have access to our farm pond, trails, the farm store and barns, all accessible by vehicle just down the road.

Farm Experiences: Please contact us for a farm tour or if you would like to visit our farm store. We offer our Animal Welfare Approved Pork, Beef, Chicken, Eggs and Lamb as well as seasonal produce, local soaps, Shenandoah National Park maps and souvenirs, local art and essential camping gear. Sampler baskets are available for delivery to your cottage or pickup at the farm. Our breakfast basket, which includes AWA Farm Eggs, AWA Pork or Lamb Sausage, biscuit mix, local jam and local roasted coffee is a big hit for overnight guest.

Access to our river property located on a stocked trout stream is approximately 3 miles from the cottage. Just ask for a map.

Things to Note:

We are pet friendly but do require a pet fee. We ask that pets remain on a leash when at the cottage to prevent chasing of our neighbors' cats or horses. It is also required when on the farm to prevent any chasing of farm animals including, ducks, chickens, goats, sheep, cows, pigs and cats. Please note that we have farm dogs on the property who are not leashed but they do not visit the cottage.

Our cottage property is neighbored by a lovely small horse farm. The horses sometimes come say hello over the fence. Please do not touch or feed the horses or trespass over the fence.

Please note that Madison County and the area surrounding area including Shenandoah National Park has limited cell phone service and that high-speed internet is not an option in our area. Most of our guests with AT&T or Verizon will get one to two bars at the cottage. Our Wi-Fi is perfect for checking email or searching the internet, but our satellite is too slow for video or large downloads (doing this will make the internet speed even slower for the next person). Please take this time to disconnect and enjoy the outdoors!

Please note that the cottage is located in the country! All of our homes are on well water and many homes in the area have iron, sulfur and other elements in the drinking water.

Bugs and other pests: If you leave food on the counter or another mess in the kitchen, you might get a visit from an ant or mouse. If you leave food outside unattended you may get a visit from a raccoon, possum, a neighbor's dog or even a bear. If you leave the doors or windows open (without screens) you will likely get stink bugs, lady bugs, flies, spiders, etc. If you leave the lights off at night, you'll likely see fireflies lighting up the night sky during the summer.
