    Nice getaway
    The property was clean and in good condition. Enjoyed a couple of days exploring this beautiful area of Virginia!

    5/5 Excellent

    Perfect Get Away
    Nothing bad to say about our experience. Patrick was amazing and answered any questions very promptly. His adjacent farm also allowed for beautiful hiking, bass fishing and private access to the Jackson River. We all enjoyed ourselves and will be going back. Close enough to enjoy the amenities of the Homestead without having to stay at a crowded hotel.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great property with a bonus
    We enjoyed our stay at Hemlock House. The house is beautiful and pretty well stocked as far as our needs went. The use of the bass pond was a wonderful bonus that we were not expecting but throughly enjoyed! I got to pet the horses in the field when they came close to us while we were fishing which made my decade! Thanks for a great stay!

    5/5 Excellent

    Great stay in Bath!
    The property was exactly as it appears in the photos, very well maintained and clean. Great location only 20 minutes to Lake Moomaw and 10 minutes to Warm Springs. The private trail on the owners property is amazing and well taken care of- the trout stream is like a little piece of heaven. I can't recommend this place enough!

    5/5 Excellent

    Hemlock Heaven
    We have rented many homes from VRBO and this house was unusually comfortable, clean and tastefully furnished. If you want a very quiet and bucolic setting this is the perfect spot. For a couple of days the silence was broken by the sound of cows lowing at a nearby farm. What a treat!
