image of home for sale in Bath County, Virginia

Virginia’s River Ridge Ranch Estate occupies a scenic perch that movie buffs may recognize from the 1993 Richard Gere/Jodie Foster flick, Sommersby. Some scenes from Civil War-era movie were filmed here, as well as at nearby locations in Hot Springs and Warm Springs.

This well-manicured property shares a boundary with the region’s sprawling George Washington & Jefferson National Forests and overlooks the meandering Cowpasture River. The estate boasts a half-mile section of the river, home to smallmouth bass and trout. Along with fishing, the river is an ideal spot for swimming and canoeing.

The western Virginia location is accessible via interstates 81 and 64 and is conveniently located close to various area attractions such as the Omni Homestead Resort, Douthat State Park and abundant outdoor activities.
