Virginia is cherished for its sweeping and beautiful geography, Atlantic beaches, the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, as well as its fascinating place in American history. The Historic Mount Welby is right in the heart of it, in the stunning Shenandoah mountain region.  

The property was established in the early 1800's and the home underwent a full restoration in 2004, keeping the charm of the original wood-and-stone home but updating it with modern amenities such as the gourmet kitchen, and undoing the damage of nearly two-hundred years of wear. The lovely white country home is perfectly situated on top of a small hill, offering spectacular views in every direction.

This three-story home has the charm and grandeur of a country estate and the comforts of a boutique hotel.  There are six fireplaces, a large great room, formal dining room/retreat space, gourmet kitchen, study, several porches/balconies, and plenty of outdoor patio space.  Artfully restored, the home still has its original wood floors, high ceilings, stunning moulding detail, and stonework.


Though the house is impressive, the grounds are spectacular. The 23 acre estate includes manicured gardens, expansive patios, stables and pastures, several ponds, a babbling brook, shade trees, and panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah National Park and the historic Skyline Drive.  

With its pristine forests, old stone walls, and historic buildings, Mt. Welby feels a world away.
