Serenity’s Edge is a prime site for watching the migration of hawks and other birds.  The cottages all have decks with a clear view of  the skies and padded lounge chairs that make bird watching a joy.  Each cottage has bird identification books and binoculars.   It is not unusual for "kettles" of hawks to be seen here, riding the thermals off the mountain ridges.

Typically, on a daily basis,  you can see two pairs of red-tailed hawks playing in the thermals.  One of these hawks was severely injured with a compound fracture of the wing.  Paula Tiara captured the bird and took it to the wildlife refuge in Winchester where the wing was repaired and the bird was taught to fly again.  Can you image the thrill of being able to release this bird back on the mountain several months later? 

Until late November and then back again in the early spring, you will see an array of migrating hawks-- especially red-tailed, broad wing, red-shouldered and the smaller Cooper’s hawk.  You may also see other birds such as eagles, ospreys, kestrels, and peregrine falcons.  These birds of prey migrate to areas in Mexico, Central America and South America for the winter months.


"...These cottages are perfect for a romantic weekend away from the chaos of your daily life in the city.    From CBS DC  "Best Of"  featured on April 20th, 2013 by Priya Konings


"Thank you so much for everything.  Everyone is amazed at how great the pictures are and we were so touched by the ceremony.  It is the second time around for both of us. The ceremony was so meaningful.  It was just so very special, I don't even have the words to describe it's effect."  M&M,  VA


"We wish to thank you for your hospitality, kindness and grace.  We had a beautiful, peaceful time for the three days we were here."  A&C,  PA


"It is obvious that Serenity's Edge is your passion.  Your attention to details makes this a very special place.  We really enjoyed our stay here."  A&A, VA


"We feel incredibly lucky to have found you and Serenity's Edge on the internet search.  Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of land with all the lovers of the world...and marrying us on this little piece of Heaven in the Blue Ridge mountains..."    D&D, AZ


"Serenity's Edge exceeded our expectations! Everything was perfect.   Your patience, time and efforts, made our  ceremony lovely!   We would love to come back for a longer stay."  N&J, Ohio


""We spent four wonderful days at Serenity’s Edge.  We renewed our vows, and chose to stay in Tiara House.  Paula is a fabulous host, she takes you through the house you have decided on, then she leaves you on your own, but will be there to help or answer questions at a moments notice.  Our renewal wowed us, because of each detail Paula had put into it.

I enjoyed getting up early having my coffee surrounded by the natural beauty and sounds of birds singing, then doing some yoga in the beautiful surroundings.  The first morning, just as I was about to go out the door, just steps away, I saw a deer relaxed and eating apples.  We saw some type of wildlife every morning and every evening.  The views surrounding you everywhere are just stunning.  Not one thing has been overlooked, you can see special touches in the gazebo, in every flower garden, and all the landscaping.

I was looking forward to being unplugged from the world for a few days.  The solitude was wonderful.  We read, listened to relaxing music, cooked, and just sat, talked and relaxed.  The days flew by way too quickly …  We are most definitely going back together, and I plan to return by myself for a spiritual retreat.

Whether you are a couple planning some type of nuptials, a couple looking for a special place to reconnect, or a solo retreat … Serenity’s Edge is for you.  I can’t wait to go back to the place that has stolen a piece of my heart. "  KCM,  NC
