Imagine ... a serene country setting, away from the daily bustle, a babbling creek, majestic rolling hills, and country gardens in the summertime! It's all at Orchardside on Ott's Creek. Only 20-23mi to Lexington & Staunton, VA.
We have a sweet & friendly Bichon Frise. Emma is 99% welcoming to other dogs, with the occasional exception. We are open to the idea of your ONE, SMALL dog coming with you; however, there is an additional $15, paid at check-in!
Our little 600sqft bungalow offers a living/kitchenette area with a microwave, mini refrigerator, Keurig single coffee/tea maker with desired assorted sweeteners, creams and a toaster. Additionally, there are two modest, but comfortable bedrooms; one with a queen size bed and the other, a set of twin beds, both with cedar closets. Whether the weather be cool or just down right cold, we have you covered with all the bed gear you'll need to keep you comfy cozy and warm! The bungalow is heated with a VERY safe propane wall unit and will warm you up in no time. There is wi-fi available, as well as a TV (for use with DVD player and Roku player, no cable or satellite) if you just want to kick back and stay in for a movie night... OR perhaps you are a puzzle person! We have you covered there as well! For the "wee ones" we have some coloring books, crayons and the Uno card game, along with some good bedtime stories.
PLEASE NOTE!!! The full bath is just a short walk from the bungalow to the main house back door; less than 20'. It is just off the laundry/mud room and is most comfortable, with plenty of towels, washcloths, soaps and other sundries if you've left yours behind. There is NO bathroom facility in the bungalow. The washer and dryer are at your disposal as well! Please note though, the dryer randomly picks items to rough up a bit. It seems it likes towels most, but just want to put you on alert! We can't be responsible for any damaged items placed in the dryer.
There is a grill available for use located on the side porch, between the bungalow and main house. It's a bit temperamental, but we are glad to show you how to light up safely!
We hope your stay at Orchardside on Ott's Creek is a time filled with relaxation, chill time, exploration, taking in the surroundings we have to offer here at Orchardside! Whether you just want to kick back, read a book on the bungalow porch or by the creek, cook out, have a picnic or explore the property ... We welcome and encourage you to make yourselves at home. Trout are in the creek, so fish to your hearts content...just please throw your catchings back after you've experienced the thrill of the catch! ... AND you will need to bring your own fishing rod!
