The SpaceMountain House Getaway Retreats don't get any better than this! What better place to relax and unwind than immersed in the beauty of the fall season. The gentle breezes and beautiful foliage of the Blue Ridge Mountains keep us peaceful, far away from the pavement of the city. The Appalachian Trail threads its way over Bluff Mountain right behind the house, so if you are looking forward to doing some hiking, this is a great jumping off point for an escape from real life. Perfect for avid outdoors-folk, the Old Parsonage is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park, both national treasures. Close to the James and Tye Rivers and a quick drive to the George Washington National Forest, this is a sportsman's paradise. In 1897 this wonderful house was built as the Parsonage for the local Pastor. It has been receiving guests ever since. Now renovated and turned into a rentable retreat, you can host your next friendly gathering in this homey and comfortable farmhouse with a magnificent view of the Blue Ridge. With three bedrooms, the house comfortably sleeps 6 and has 2 full baths, a large living room and a full eat in Kitchen. There are laundry facilities, a dishwasher, and central heat and air conditioning. The front bedroom has a queen bed, the middle bedroom has a queen bed, and there is a loft bedroom off the middle bedroom that has two twin beds. We believe in great old fashioned country breakfasts, so we leave plenty of breakfast goodies for you to cook up during your stay. Bacon and Fresh Eggs anyone? But best of all is the great outdoors - incredible views surround the house which is situated in the village of Pleasant View, Virginia. This is an authentic farming community. Most of the residents have lived here all their lives, and why not? After living in Pleasant View, where else could you go that would be so - Pleasant? The quiet, laid back lifestyle in this village has been nearly lost in much of America. If you are interested in experiencing a bit of country farm life, we can bring a small flock of 6 hens over to the barn coop for you to enjoy during your visit (weather permitting). Our girls are great fun and come in every color under the sun. Pleasant View is very horse friendly, and people still ride horses on the highway here, as well as on the nearby horse trails off of Route 60. A simple stable and nice pasture on the property make a pleasant place to tie out your horse during your stay. The Old Parsonage makes a great place to stay for Parents and Graduation weekends or for mid-year visits to see your favorite students. Half Hour Away: Lynchburg is home to five of Central Virginia's Colleges and Universities, including Liberty University, Sweet Briar College, Randolph College, Lynchburg College and Central Virginia Community College.
