Brumback House

6045 Ida Road, Stanley, VA 22851  Calendar HERE   Map HERE

Shenandoah Woods is just a fraction of what once was the 1000+ acre Brumback Estate with this early 1800s farm house at it's center. Restored in 1992, the Brumback House is now a historic vacation home featuring original stone, brick, and a wood burning fireplace. 

The downstairs level has a living room, sitting area, kitchen, bathroom and covered porch. The upstairs has a deck with picnic table and 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has one queen and one full bed (Access the second bedroom by walking through the master or via it's own exterior door).

This home still overlooks a working farm, the barn and fields providing a charming foreground to the view of the Shenandoah Valley. The driveway is shared with another quiet farm house, but there are no other homes within half a mile. Willow Pond is just a short walk down the hill.

Brumback House front
Brumback before


By 1992 the Brumback House had been abandoned for decades.  Doors and windows were missing allowing a small herd of Angus cattle to take up residence inside the house. The back half of the home was still sturdy but very little remained of the front half. Local experts said It was “too far gone” and advised the owners to bulldoze it. The Caves, however, appreciated the history of the old home as well as the challenge and set out to save as much of it as they could. 


The overhanging roof (pictured above) was removed and a wall and porch were added to the new front of the structure (below, left). Plumbing and electricity were added and floors in the lower level were replaced. The pantry/root cellar was made into a bathroom. Today you can see original stone and brick walls, two original fireplaces, original bulls-eye wood trim and the original pine floors in the upper level. The 200 year old structure has its flaws but it also has lots of charm for those who appreciate old things.
