Meet your hosts, Orlesa Farms! We operate a charming hobby farm in the Shenandoah Valley, Augusta County, VA, an hour from the Top of Jack Mountain Cabin. Our journey began with Orlesa Farms in Staunton, VA, a beloved bed and breakfast and event venue. Though we miss it, we've created a new experience for our guests. Our Jack Mountain cabin offers a unique escape. At 2000 feet higher than our old inn, this retreat features the spirit of Orlesa Farms in a serene mountain setting. The landscapes of western Virginia and eastern West Virginia let you run wild and be amazed by the mountains. Though Monterey is in Virginia, it's on the fringe and surrounded by West Virginia's wild beauty. Our children have been integral to our journey, and their spirit is embedded in everything we do. "Orlesa" combines the first initials of our six children in reverse order of birth.

We invite you to explore this new chapter with us. The cabin, though different, carries the warmth and hospitality of Orlesa Farms.

We look forward to welcoming you for a memorable journey and stay.
