Relax and unwind in this quiet, peaceful, country getaway that is nestled up against Mole Hill, a Shenandoah Valley landmark. Sit back, relax, and enjoy scenic valley views, birds at the feeder, and the sounds of nature. Book your stay for that special occasion and experience some of the best that the Shenandoah Valley has to offer! Home on Mole Hill is great for anyone wanting an entire house and property, all located just minutes from JMU, EMU, Harrisonburg, Dayton, and Bridgewater.

The space
Home on Mole Hill is located on a beautiful half-acre property, ten minutes from Harrisonburg, and has a gorgeous view of the Shenandoah Valley and Massanutten Peak. While there are a few houses in the surrounding vicinity, this is a tranquil area, and most of the surrounding area is woodland and farmland.

This two-bedroom house has a full bath, fully stocked kitchen, living room, laundry room, and dining room. The master bedroom has a luxurious queen-sized bed, while the smaller bedroom has two plush twin beds. There are alarm clocks and phone charging stations in both bedrooms for your convenience. The beautiful full bath has a luxurious hot towel rack that will ensure that your towels are warm and dry when you step out of the shower.

The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, glassware, silverware, and basic cooking essentials like spices and oil. We keep the refrigerator stocked with water and root beer, and there are ice and frozen glass mugs in the freezer. The coffee bar in the kitchen includes a Keurig Coffee maker with numerous coffee and tea options and cream and sugar. There is also a French Press and Teapot on the stove for those of us who are coffee connoisseurs. The cozy breakfast nook in the kitchen is the perfect place to enjoy your cup of coffee and our complimentary cinnamon bun.

Enjoy a gorgeous view of the Shenandoah Valley out of the bay window in the living room and the many species of wild birds that come to feed at the backyard feeders. This relaxing living space has a full-sized sleep sofa and a lazy boy chair for those of us who like to kick back and relax. This is also where the WIFI router is located and an Anker Bluetooth speaker for your use. The dining room is complete with an oak table that will comfortably seat six and a restored piano desk that makes for a perfect workstation. There is also a fully equipped laundry room for your convenience, in case you need to wash a load or two of clothes.

Fire up our Weber gas grill on the patio to do some barbecue or grill up some delicious steaks. This patio is shaded for most of the day and offers a beautiful view of the Shenandoah Valley as the sun goes down. The backyard has bird feeders and a birdbath, as well as an outdoor glider that is nestled up against the woods. This swing is a guest favorite because it offers a gorgeous view of the Valley while placing you in a country setting with the sounds of nature around you.

While this home has no TV, it has Xfinity high-speed internet for business or streaming video to your personal device. You will access the house via a Schlage Smart Lock, and you will have a personalized access code which will be good for the duration of your stay. Home on Mole Hill is also equipped with other smart features and technology like a Nest Smart Thermostat, smart smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, and phone chargers throughout the house (including wireless chargers).

Where you’ll be

Dayton, Virginia, United States

This home is nestled at the foot of Mole Hill, a local landmark and extinct volcano, in a quiet rural neighborhood. Mole Hill consists of roughly 150 acres of woodland, 46 of which are open for you to hike. These woods are a favorite destination of local birdwatchers, and the lucky person may even see a few deer. Geologists come from all over the east coast to study the rocks and features of this extinct volcano.
"Home on Mole Hill" is only a 10-15 min drive to most places in Harrisonburg, which gives you direct access to JMU, EMU, and Bridgewater College and a wide range of dining and shopping options.

The small town of Dayton, located only 10 minutes away, has several eating options, historical locations, and shopping.

It is also only a 15 min drive to Bridgewater, a small town with attractions like Bridgewater College, a skating rink (winter only), an excellent mini-golf course, and numerous small town restaurants and shopping options.
