Elmo's Rest is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, at the foot of the Peaks of Otter. We are only a 5-7 hour drive from New York NY, Atlanta GA, Philadelphia PA, Nashville, TN. and a 4 -5 hour drive from Washington DC, Charlotte NC, Virginia Beach VA, and 3 hours from Richmond, VA and Raleigh NC.

In the early 1900's, Elmo Johnson and his wife Freddie lived and raised their family in the house. They planted their first apple tree in 1919. The secluded home is in the middle of 250 acres of orchards, lush pastures, and shady woods. It is located a -mile from the nearest dwelling. It is surrounded by the animals that you would expect to find on a self-sufficient farm of that era. Animals include cattle, horses, burros, dogs, cats, pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits, and turkeys.

From the first blossom of Spring, to creek wading in Summer, to the last crisp apple of Fall, to the snow-covered hills of Winter, there is a time for you to relax or be active. The property boasts 3 ponds for fishing, creeks for wading, "deer" trails for walking and hiking, and wonderful rolling land for cross-country skiing. There are breathtaking views in all directions for viewing or photographing.

The home is 8 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and 7 miles from The National D-Day Memorial. On the farm is Peaks of Otter Winery which makes "Fruit of the Farm Wine." Nearby you can find fast food and gourmet restaurants.

Your hosts will be Nancy and Danny Johnson who have lived in the house they built on the farm for over forty years. Elmo's is the house that Danny grew up in. They and sons, Chip and Shannon enjoy the farm life and are pleased to share this experience with their guests.

The rambling 19th-Century farmhouse is furnished as if someone stepped out in the 1930's or 40's, yet it has all the modern conveniences of home. The farmhouse is completely furnished to accommodate groups, families, and couples.

The home has 5 bedrooms and sleeps up to 14 guests. Three of the bedrooms each have 2 double beds, one bedroom has 2 bunk beds (4 beds), and another bedroom has a single bed and a twin baby bed. The house also has a living room, dining room, 2 bathrooms, and plenty of porches for sitting. The fully-equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, dishes, and pots and pans. The home also has a washer/dryer, phone, TV, central air and a VCR. Linens and towels are provided.

The property has a children's playhouse, barbecue grill, horseshoes, and a seasonal farm store. It also has creeks for wading, and ponds for fishing.
Controlled pets and smoking are allowed.
