Home on historic 18th century property in Eagle Rock, VA. Good sized home with a fully-appointed, high-end recording studio on the second floor! 200 + acres of woods to explore. Hiking, mountain biking, swimming, fishing and paddling near by. A great recreation area on at The James River/Craig's Creek Confluence just a short walk away. Dogs welcome! No cats, please.
IDEAL place for bands or musicians to get away, relax and write. Recording services available with your stay at great rates!
A 1600ish sf fully appointed house on 300 acres of woods bordering The James River.
The upstairs has been converted to a high-level recording studio with all the bells and whistles.
It is an old, rustic, lived-in house in the middle of the woods. We are on a well, and the well water has a slight iron/sulphur smell. This is due to minerals in the ground water. It is perfectly safe to drink, bathe in, wash dishes with, etc. I will provide plenty of bottled drinking water for your stay. I have received a couple of 4 star reviews because of the water quality. Please consider that we're on a well and the water has a smell before booking. I believe the low rate on the house reflects this and that it shouldn't effect reviews.
If you're into having an outdoor experience in the woods next to a gorgeous river around amazing opportunities for outdoor sports, beautiful views, and abundant wildlife, you will LOVE the place.
If you're looking for more of a hotel experience, it may not be for you. It is an old house on a remote property. There are bugs, dirt, wild animals, etc. We aren't the Marriot.
All that said, the house will be top to bottom freshly clean with freshly laundered towels and bedding for each guest. It's a cool, very comfortable spot with a ton of neat stuff inside it.
The entire house, other than one bedroom. Guests have the place all to themselves.
Preferably, I'd like to get the place ready for your stay, leave a key and leave you to it. I'm *always* available for help in advance. If I can do something to make your stay better, please don't be afraid to ask.
That said, I'm a very social person who loves to talk and hang out. If you would prefer me to be there to help get you settled, give me a shout.
Summit Sound is a fully appointed, state of the art recording facility in addition to being a cool house in the woods. Let us know if you'd like to take advantage of those services! Our house engineer has credits on Grammy-winning recordings and years of experience with hundreds of clients and projects.
We have a 60" TV in the living room with DVD/VHS, and Atari 2600, and PS1 ready to go for the classic game enthusiast!
The water is a little funky. We're on a well in an iron heavy area. There is some hydrogen sulfide in the aquifer which has an "odor". This tends to come and go over certain times of the year, and we're working to alleviate this issue. This is naturally occurring and in no way dangerous or unsanitary.
There is a road close to the house adjacent to the driveway.
