Jacob's Shenandoah River cobbler shop has evolved into a
solitary self-contained cottage; the ultimate destination for the angler, nature lover or
in the rolling checkered hills of the Shenandoah Valley, an area rich in Virginia history,
is the historic1852 heart-of-pine farmhouse build by Jacob Swartz
for his new bride Lucinda Zirkle. The Swartz family home and Jacob's river-bluff cobbler
shop, which has evolved into a secluded and inviting guest cottage for today's traveler (the only available Bed and Breakfast lodging), stand
peacefully at the very end of a tree lined country lane overlooking the Shenandoah
River's North Fork.
Steeped in history
this historic house was well documented by Jacob; from building costs to items
pillaged by Federal troops under the command of General George Armstrong Custer.
A sumptuous full breakfast is served at your leisure in
the main house, on your own river-bluff terrace (weather permitting) or, if you prefer
cottage. Breakfast consists of juice, seasonal fruit, an egg entree, pancakes, waffles or
French toast (special diets are accommodated).
Please, come linger awhile and discover what Virginia's
Shenandoah Valley has to offer in scenic beauty, historic lore and holiday recreation. If
time permits we'll keep you busy for days.
A DAY IN THE COUNTRY IS WORTH A MONTH IN TOWN.....
