We live in a rural area of the Blue Ridge Kountains on the Southern rim of the Rock Castle Gorge, a few thousand yards from the Blue Ridge escarpment, on an old 66 acre farm with rolling hills, heritage apple trees and woods dotted with mountain laurel and rhododendron.

It's a timber frame home, built in  2011, with 3 BR and 3.5 baths, wifi, TV and stereo system, lots of deck, porches, patio, gas range, double door fridge, whole house backup generator with automatic switches, dishwasher, washer, dryer, covered walkway to garage, and lots of peace and quiet.

Near Floyd VA, a site on Virginias Crooked Road music trail, four miles from iconic Mabry Mill and surrounded by wooded hills and magnificent views.  We are at 3186' elevation, and winters can be cold up here. We have electric heat pumps plus propane gas heating when it is colder than 35F outside, a 20KW whole-house generator, and a Woodstock Soapstone Stove in the great room and plenty of split, stacked oak firewood.  A winter housesit may not be for everyone, but for those who like clear winter nights with excellent star-gazing, you won't find a better spot. There's no light pollution, and just you, Orion and an amazing night sky overhead.

Nearest town is Floyd VA, about 18 miles by dirt and paved road, where there is shopping, restaurants, doctors and good entertainment.  But sometimes winter weather keeps us close to home.  This winter house sit won't be for everyone, but for those who like to be close to nature and aren't overly bothered by outdoors cold, this might just be the ticket.
