The House

Staunton, Virginia is the queen city of the Shenandoah Valley, and Gaie Lea is its crown jewel. This grand home features 5,000+ spacious square feet of living space, including 16 very large rooms, 11 beds, 3.5 baths, plus formal and casual living areas for your family to spread out and enjoy. Situated on 200 acres, there’s a private lake, pool, tennis court, and infinite adventures for your imagination to play. Cheer on your favorite football team in the den while the kids play ping-pong in the playroom, and the ladies share stories over bridge in the living room. When evening falls, the night owls can dance to vinyl oldies on the authentic 1960s vintage turntable while the little ones are safely tucked in for the night. Etch lasting memories over family meals served in the formal dining room, casual outdoor patio, or cozy farm kitchen.

The home at Gaie Lea is available for weekly rental for your family vacation, reunion, holiday, graduation, anniversary, or personal retreat, and is also available for an additional fee to accommodate up to 250 guests for your wedding or private event.
