About Patricia & Crofton Held
We moved to Virginia in 1989 in search of more open space and a place to realize our dream of a horse farm. Crofton is retired from the Army Reserves and owns a small local business. Patricia operates the farm, is a freelance writer, and coordinates activities at Rose Cottage. We both enjoy horseback riding and Patricia hikes regularly on the Appalachian Trail.

Why Patricia & Crofton Held chose Peaks
We immediately fell in love with the land and people in Bedford County. The area is beautiful and our neighbors are friendly and caring. The wooded trails and nearby dirt road added to the appeal. There is no other place we could imagine living. We moved here with Patricia's mother who was an artist and avid gardener. She designed and built Rose Cottage on the property. The home includes much of her original artwork and the gardens showcase her amazing green thumb.
What makes this house unique
Rose Cottage is designed as a place to relax and get away from a too busy life. While we are within a short drive of Bedford and Lynchburg, most of our guests stay with us to enjoy the surroundings right at Rose Cottage. The views of the the grazing horses, fishing pond, birds and wildlife are never-ending. Rose Cottage, with its gardens, large glassed-in porch, and trails offers a combination of spaces to experience what our farm has to offer.
