About the Property
Mount Marshall Meadow is 25 acres of mountain woodland, grassy meadow, meandering creeks, and beautiful mountain views. Splendidly located only 3.5 miles from the Town of “Little” Washington, Virginia, and just steps from the Mount Marshall Trail Head, it would make a perfect base for your Rappahannock County adventures. The property adjoins the Shenandoah National Park and it is possible to hike into the Park from your own back yard by linking up with the Mount Marshall Trail further uphill. Mount Marshall Road is a tranquil, state-maintained gravel road with no through traffic. The Rush River rushes by just across the road from the property and follows the road towards Washington.
The property was used for hunting and you will see an abundance of deer, turkey, and possibly bear in the area. There is an old, sturdily-built hunting lodge with a small garage, two stories, laundry area, and two wood stoves. From the deck, the stream can be heard burbling along through the woods. With some TLC, the lodge could once again become a favorite camp. There are also many beautiful and private possible building sites, in both the meadow and the woods. The existing driveway, electric service, and well would give any project a good head start.
The nearby Town of Washington, the Rappahannock County seat, is home to the five-star Inn at Little Washington. Dinner there is an experience to remember and not to be missed. Washington also boasts gourmet dinners at Foster Harris House and more casual but excellent dining at Tula’s, where there is a warm and welcoming bar as well. The Country Cafe, Wine Loves Chocolate, and several boutiques and galleries round out the Washington experience.
Further afield, Rappahannock County offers many diversions. Shenandoah National Park offers miles of trails and spectacular views from the many scenic overlooks along Skyline Drive. There is great trout fishing in the county and charming back roads to explore by car, bicycle, or even horseback. This is also a great area for local food with many farms, orchards, bakery/cafes, wineries, two breweries, and even a distillery. Spend a weekend picking apples and visiting antique stores, or taste some wine and visit the many art galleries. Or stay home at Mount Marshall Meadows and watch the changing light in the trees as the sun goes down over the mountains.
