Retreat to a secluded getaway vacation farm rental house in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Enjoy waking up to the rosters crow and the cows low. Forget about the smoke and the smog, breath deeply of the fresh air that flows down the side of the famous Peaks of Otter in Virginia. Hike through the hills on the trails that have been used for many centuries BY both man and beast. Watch a baby sheep or calf look for momma. Return to that time that was a little bit slower and colors brighter. Visit for a week and remember for a lifetime. ELMO'S REST --It does it all, Spring, Winter, Summer and Fall. When you visit, you not only carry some of Elmo’s back with you but, part of your Heart remains in these beautiful valleys and mountains with us. Join us in memories.

In the early 1900's, Elmo Johnson and his wife Freddie lived and raised their family in the house. They planted their first apple tree in 1919. The secluded home is in the middle of 250 acres of orchards, lush pastures, and shady woods. It is located a ½-mile from the nearest dwelling. It is surrounded by the animals that you would expect to find on a self-sufficient farm of that era. Animals include cattle, horses, burros, dogs, cats, pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits, and turkeys.
The property has a children's playhouse, barbecue grill, horseshoes, and a seasonal farm store. It also has creeks for wading, and ponds for fishing. There is an on farm winery also on the farm.
