About Kimberly Bagford
I proudly serve the Department of the Navy and live in Alexandria VA. When I'm not dealing with the hustle and bustle of DC life, I like to escape to the tranquil lifestyle and beautiful scenery that Belle Vue and Bryce Resort have to offer. Belle Vue is my vacation home, as well. I love it and I work very hard hoping that you do too! My goal is a safe, entertaining, and relaxing environment for your enjoyment.
Kimberly Bagford purchased this House in 2011
Why Kimberly Bagford chose Basye
Belle Vue is a quick 2 hour drive from my home in the DC area, which makes it a convenient getaway for me and my family, even if only for the weekend. When I first saw this property, I fell in love with its breathtaking views from both inside and out, as well as the open floor plan. I was equally impressed with the distinctly modern and elegant feel.
What makes this House unique
Whether you like basking in the sun sipping a glass of wine on one of the many decks, lounging on the sofa in front of the fire, preparing a meal on the grill or in the upgraded kitchen, driving 1 mile down to Bryce Resort to go skiing or snow tubing, or driving 4 miles to relax lakeside at Lake Laura... Belle Vue has it all- convenient location, phenomenal views, peaceful seclusion, and fantastic amenities.

Our host Kimberly was awesome! The place was so well organized, everything and anything we needed was well marked. It was so clean!! The patios and porches were fantastic. It was a perfect little getaway to celebrate my 50th birthday!
Beautiful, peaceful property
We rented this home for 6 adults participating in a bicycle tour. It was a lovely, quiet getaway spot after a hard day of riding. The views were beautiful and the location allowed us to enjoy cool evening breezes. The accommodations were lovely. We had lots of space, the beds were extra comfy and there was plenty of comfortable seating indoors and out. The owner was gracious and very responsive if we had questions.
The house was perfect for our family of 6 to unplug and enjoy each other. The location was a short and scenic ride from DC with lots of small towns to stop at on the way, if we wanted (Woodstock and Stasburg were our favorites).
The house was spotless and very well equipped. The bed configuration in the second bedroom allowed us a lot of flexibility in who slept where. The screened porch was the best part!! The mountain air was beautiful and we spent, with little exaggeration, every waking moment on the porch. The view was so peaceful, with only 1 or 2 houses visible (in the summer!).
The only thing I would mention is that the "resort" wasn't much. We did have access to an indoor pool and the lake for swimming but not the outdoor pool, that was reserved for locals? (or so we were told). The mountain biking looked awesome, but the other activities were a ghost town. Even on Saturday, they didn't have anyone working the rock climbing wall or the summer tubing. Thankfully, we were happy to play games and do puzzles on the porch.
I highly recommend this property for a relaxing get away!
Excellent Stay in Basye
We had a great experience at the property. 11 of us came together for a weekend of catching up, and our experience was as good as we could have ever wished. The house was clean and in an incredible location, both for nature and activities. Kimberley communicated so well, and was very easy to work with as well.
My sister and I met with our kids at BelleVue for spring break. She has 1 and I have 3. The layout was awesome...space for the kids to play and watch TV without bothering us making dinner. The views from the decks are incredible. We played cards and enjoyed our coffee out there in the morning. It’s a 30 min drive to Shenandoah Caverns which was amazing and fun for the adults and kids. We bought a monthly membership to the High Chalet Activity center ($100 for 5 people unlimited or $10/person/day) which has a heated pool and a hot tub. The kids loved it and so did we. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful with area attractions to check out. All in all it was an awesome trip and we will definitely come back!
It was beautiful
Really nice place to stay, beautiful house in the woods.
