Gum Tree Lodge, a newly built A-frame style cottage is located in the Madison-Barbour Rural Historic District on seventy acres of pastoral countryside. Nestled in woods the Lodge offers a unique retreat for couples and gathering place for friends.
The interior of Gum Tree Lodge is built almost entirely of recycled materials. Reclaimed and recycled wood flooring, beams, doors and siding make this A-frame a charming eco -friendly space. Gum Tree Lodge is approximately eighty yards behind the main house and our wood shop/art studio. There is a loft bedroom, and first floor bathroom with walk-in shower. In addition, there is a pull-out sleeping sofa and an outdoor shower next to the back porch.
There are trails through the woods for a leisurely walk in addition to front and back porches on which to relax and enjoy the best of rural Virginia living.
We are close enough to assist in any way but will also respect guests' space and privacy.
