The Granary at Owl Moon Farm is a charming family getaway nestled in the mountains just minutes from Lexington, Virginia. With its idyllic location on an historic 100 acre farm, our cottage provides a unique setting that is perfect for your visit to the scenic Shenandoah Valley. The Granary was originally constructed in the early 1900’s and was operated for many years as part of a turn-of-the-century farm. It was completely renovated in 2007 to provide all of the modern comforts and conveniences of a mountain farm retreat, but with its exposed, hand-hewn beams, rough-sawn boards, and broad expanses of windows, it retains a unique and historic charm all its own.
The Granary is perfect for families, comfortably sleeping five people. There is one bedroom with a queen-sized bed, queen-sized sleeper sofa and a sleeping nook with a twin-sized daybed. The bedroom has queen-sized platform bed, luxury bedding, walk-in closet, reading nook and direct access to the private rear deck. There is a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the great room and a twin-sized day bed with memory foam mattress in a sleeping alcove of the great room – both are great for kids! There is plenty of room for a travel crib or an air mattress; there is no charge for children under 2 years old.
Located on the lower level of this unique cottage are two half bathrooms. One bathroom features a one-of-a-kind shower/tub combination, antique marble sink, radiant panel heating and a high efficiency washer and dryer. The other has a Todo toilet and sink.
The kitchen is large, bright and fully equipped with a coffee maker, toaster, microwave and gas range. For your stay, we provide delicious, organic BOLD3 coffee, an assortment of Bigelow teas and sweeteners, including local honey. Overlooking two of our smaller pastures and a large historic barn is a sun-filled dining nook with built-in seating under an antique bay window.
The living area is a spacious great room with vaulted 20′ ceilings and original exposed post and beams. Free WiFi, 40″ Smart TV with Blu-ray player, DVD collection, numerous games, puzzles and books are also provided.
The spacious and private deck reaches over a rock-strewn stream. There is a stainless steel gas grill for your use and plenty of seating for relaxing, star-gazing and listening to the evening calls of the many owls that make their home in the surrounding forest.
Our farm is 10 minutes from the Virginia Horse Center and just 9 miles from Historic Downtown Lexington, Washington & Lee University and Virginia Military Institute. The Humphrey’s Gap entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail, Cave Mountain Lake, the Safari Park, Natural Bridge State Park, Lake Robertson, Buffalo Creek, the Calfpasture River, Goshen Pass, and Douthat State Park are all within a 30-minute drive.
