The SpaceThe Granary is a charming 2BR/1.5BA getaway nestled in the mountains just minutes from Lexington, VA. It provides a unique and pastoral setting on a historic 100 acre farm. Perfect for up to 7 guests. Idyllic location in the Shenandoah Valley.
The Granary at Owl Moon Farm 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 2006 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 comfortably sleeps seven people. There are two bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed plus a queen-size sleeper sofa in addition to a sleeping nook with a twin-sized, custom made daybed.
One bedroom is located downstairs with an antique queen-sized platform bed, luxury bedding, walk in closet, reading nook and direct access to the private rear deck. The other bedroom is privately located upstairs and features a four poster queen-size bed with luxury linens, antique dressers and walk-in closet.
There is a very comfortable, brand new queen size sleeper sofa located in the great room. The sleeper sofa has an extra thick mattress and luxury bedding to ensure a comfortable night's sleep - even for adults!

Becky, Tripp and their children live on the farm, but The Granary is secluded from the main house. There are also farm dogs, barn cats, chickens, goats and sheep. Our guests are welcome to join us for one of our frequent bonfires where we often roast marshmallows, make s'mores, look for shooting stars and tell a tall tale or two.
We love the pastoral seclusion of our farm. However, we are less than 15 minutes from the historic city of Lexington where there are several fine dining restaurants, excellent diners and cafes and even a couple of local coffee roasters. We feel very fortunate to be a part of a thriving small American town and community.
