Pembroke Springs Retreat is situated at the base of the Great North Mountain in the Northwestern part of the Shenandoah Valley. The Retreat is located on a 175 acre tract of field and natural forest; with a stream, a pond and numerous springs. Both native and migratory wild life are abundant and the views are spectacular at all times of the year.
The retreat operated as a bed & breakfast for many years, but re-opened as a house rental in 2020. It can now be booked to a single group, as a vacation home rental. It is not currently affiliated with VRBO or Airbnb. The house has five bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. Four guest rooms have a dynamic view of the North Mountain, and the Sunrise room is large enough to host a family. The retreat has a large commercial kitchen, dining room and living room on the upper level, and a sitting room downstairs – on the same level as the Japanese baths.
The Retreat is wheel chair accessible.
Pembroke Springs Retreat Attractions
In addition to the two large Japanese baths, which are fed by our mountain waters, there is an excellent all-weather tennis court (acrylic tile).
Guests can also fish at the pond, which is well-stocked with bass and bluegill. Several miles of easy, well-marked hiking trails twist around the property for those who love nature walks.
The area is rich in history, from both the French and Indian Wars to the Civil War, and it is an antique addict’s dream. The huge George Washington National Forest is nearby, and Bryce Mountain Ski Resort is only 40 minutes away. The breathtaking views of Skyline Drive are also about a 45 minute drive. For the serious fisherman, the Retreat is equidistant between the Shenandoah River and the Cacapon River in West Virginia.
There is a surprising variety of choices for restaurants in the area, all no more than a half hour drive, from a multi-star French restaurant to Chinese, Indian to Italian, Virginia country cooking to pizza parlors. It may be possible to have a Japanese meal cooked by the Floyds during your stay. If interested, please inquire at the time of booking.
