A luxurious and relaxing retreat. Rose Cottage is located on a 154 acre farm, (Oldenacres) in Cifax, Virginia. We are nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains with views of the Peaks of Otter. We are nine miles from Bedford and fifteen miles from Lynchburg. (Less than a half hour’s drive to Liberty University, University of Lynchburg and Randolph University and under an hour’s drive to Sweet Briar College, Hollins Universtiy and Roanoke College.)
At Oldenacres we board retired horses, most of whom have had careers in the competitive arena. The property features beautiful views of mountains and fields of grazing horses, a small herd of miniature donkeys eagerly awaiting attention from our guest, hiking trails, and a private 2.5 acre pond stocked with bass.
Rose Cottage is a charming brick home, elegantly furnished. It is surrounded by mature landscaping including specimen trees and shrubs and a formal and very private rock-walled garden that is directly accessible from the home.
The home’s interior features a large master bedroom suite with king size bed, gas fireplace and attached bath with walk in shower, additional bedroom with full size bed, bath with stall shower, office studio, large living room, dining room, sun room overlooking enchanting gardens, fully appointed kitchen and laundry.
Guests may enjoy hiking, birding and fishing on the property as well as having easy access to the Appalachian Trail, Blue Ridge Parkway and Smith Mountain Lake.
Grocery shopping service available and hosts (who live nearby) are available to help guests become acquainted with the wonderful qualities of the area. We will assist hikers to gain access to the nearby trails and help shuttle vehicles. Please note: In the event of the threat of severe winter weather, our cancellation policy will be waived and guests can choose an alternative time to reschedule their visit.
