Indian Cove Farm is located just east of the Allegheny Mountains, as shown above, in Rockbridge County, Virginia. The farm's top field is at the far right in front of the Allegiant Mountains. Jump Mountain is displayed in the middle of this photo.

Legend of Jump Mountain will give the history for Jump's name according to indian lore. When they started the pond on the farm, they found a millstone used by the indians in the area. Just over the hill at the foot of Jump Mountain there are indian burial sites at Indian Bottom Farm.

When we purchased Indian Cove Farm in 1985 there was an old brick farm house, a deteriorating cabin, a bank barn and many out buildings on the property. The farm has 255+ acres and had the virgin forests clear cut several years earlier.

The old farm house was displayed on maps dating back to 1840. The farm house had to be torn down in 1990 due to water damage from tennant neglect. We built our new home in the edge of a field that gives us magnificent views across the Shenandoah Valley to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The cottage was moved from Augusta Springs, Virginia by wagons and reassembled in 1933 in a quite cove on the back of the farm. It was torn down by the Poole Family, all parts numbered and moved by wagon across the mountain to Dutch Hollow. We refurbished the cottage and modernized it in 1986. 2015 we are updating and refurbishing the cottage again; to include the kitchen, bathroom and family room for daily and weekly rentals.

The bank barn was built in the 1887's from hewn timbers and logs. In 1985 we had the foundation restructured and in 2015 we are now residing and roofed. It has 10 stalls, round pen, 40x80 meter ring and several paddocks for turn outs. Stabling is for our guests and their horses.

In 2007, the farm was placed in a conservation easement to protect the agriculture farm use, wildlife, views shared and to keep the farm in tack for future generations to enjoy and use.
