The house is accessed by a gravel road and you must cross a bridge that covers a small brook to get to the house. While there is some cell phone service at the house, guests often lose service approaching the house so do not be concerned if your phone service cuts out temporarily.
Please note that Orchard View is located in a rural area. We have wifi, but it can be spotty at times and depending on your carrier, your phone may have limited service. Our location is best for casual online activity and is not ideal if you are looking for robust internet for a "work from home" kind of set-up.Guest interaction
We provide everything needed for the fire pit including firewood, fire starter, and lighters.
You truly have the space to yourself at Orchard View! If you have an urgent need, we have a manager that works hard to respond in-person within 24 hours of a request being made, although that is not guaranteed and an in-person response from our manager or a vendor may take longer. Please also remember that we may have limited ability to assist in inclement weather or other extenuating circumstances.Neighborhood overview
Orchardview is located in a rural area in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We have neighbors across the road, but everyone is quite spread out providing a private, relaxing, and serene environment. Getting around
Located just 7 minutes off the Blue Ridge Parkway, 20 minutes from Downtown Bedford, and under an hour from Smith Mountain Lake, there is so much to experience in the area. Bedford has a great Main Street filled with shops. It's perfect for antiquing, and features our sister property, Beale's Beer! We offer excellent craft beer and BBQ-it is not to be missed!
