vacation rental description

Elmo's Rest is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains
of Virginia, at the foot of the Peaks of Otter. We are only a 5-7
hour drive from New York NY, Atlanta GA, Philadelphia PA, Nashville,
TN. and a 4 -5 hour drive from Washington DC, Charlotte NC, Virginia
Beach VA, and 3 hours from Richmond, VA and Raleigh NC.

In the early 1900's, Elmo Johnson and his wife Freddie lived and
raised their family in the house. They planted their first apple
tree in 1919. The secluded home is in the middle of 250 acres of
orchards, lush pastures, and shady woods. It is located a ½-mile
from the nearest dwelling. It is surrounded by the animals that you
would expect to find on a self-sufficient farm of that era. Animals
include cattle, horses, burros, dogs, cats, pigs, goats, sheep,
chickens, rabbits, and turkeys.

From the first blossom of Spring, to creek wading in Summer, to the
last crisp apple of Fall, to the snow-covered hills of Winter, there
is a time for you to relax or be active. The property boasts 3 ponds
for fishing, creeks for wading, "deer" trails for walking and
hiking, and wonderful rolling land for cross-country skiing. There
are breathtaking views in all directions for viewing or

The home is 8 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and 7 miles from The
National D-Day Memorial. On the farm is Peaks of Otter Winery which
makes "Fruit of the Farm Wine." Nearby you can find fast food and
gourmet restaurants.
