Discover a unique, mountain-top getaway at this 2-bedroom, 2-bath Stanley vacation rental house. This historic converted-church home is the art lover's paradise, as it rests on a 4.5-acre, custom art estate with a 2-acre sculpture garden, serving as an inspirational gallery for over 50 years. A vibrant living area, authentic art and access to the beautiful outdoors ensures a comfortable and exciting vacation!
Bedroom 1: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Twin Bed | Living Room: Queen Bed
This charming converted-church residence used to serve the Tanners Ridge settlers in the Shenandoah National Park, before it was abandoned and subsequently bought by the famous sculptor Robert E. Kuhn. He renovated the 3 buildings into separate guest residences and turned the rural property into an original art estate, eventually passing ownership to his 3 artist sons to maintain and offer to the public.
Up to 4 art enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy themselves inside the 1,400-square-foot living space, as authentic paintings, tasteful decorations, vibrant furnishings and Gothic-style windows highlight the interior design. The homeowners really go out of their way to provide an amazing time for their guests, which is why previous travelers always rave about their experience and wish to return.
Enjoy all the provided comforts, which include plenty of fruit, a bottle of wine, bottled water, fruit juice, pie, ice cream and local sweet corn. Each morning, your hosts will greet you with a delicious, complimentary breakfast treat, consisting of either vegan muffins or blueberry-walnut pancakes! There is also a stereo system and keyboard in place, as your host is a renowned local jazz artist.
Lay back, relax and watch your favorite shows on the flat-screen TV. Curl up in front of the gas fireplace and share home-cooked dinners in the home’s renovated, open-concept layout.
Bar seating at the extended countertop and modern stainless steel appliances provide everything you’ll need to entertain and prepare gourmet recipes in the fully equipped kitchen.
Spend your vacation days lounging outside between the lovely flower garden, 2-acre sculpture gallery and peaceful forest surroundings. Fire up the gas grill and sip on your favorite cocktails underneath the shade umbrella for an afternoon barbecue.
After eating, take a tour of the original sculptures and historic buildings on the 4.5-acre, museum-quality art estate, then enjoy a croquet match in the backyard before heading out on adventures in the Shenandoah National Park - right across the street!
Return inside after each exciting day and unwind before heading to bed. In the living room, youll find a cozy red leather sofa, a click-sofa that converts into a full-sized bed and a comfortable, hidden queen-sized bed - tucked behind the fireplace.
A fun, custom catwalk leads you from the second-floor bedroom to a room with a queen bed and full en suite bathroom, and up to the 3rd-floor 'Angel-room' with a twin bed that kids will love. Wake up feeling refreshed and take your morning coffee out to the private second-floor balcony, which overlooks the beautiful backyard and sculpture park.
