How Ebb & Flow Got Started
It turns out this building has quite a history of its own.
Way back in 1930, the building we now know as ebb & flow began its history as a “fantastic restaurant” with great hamburgers and french fries. Somewhere along the way, it was also a gun shop. In
Not only did the stone cottage survive the deadly hurricane, it also helped to save the lives of others. Camille flooded small towns, and Faber was no different. Some residents made their way to the roof of the building to keep from drowning.
With such a strong history, it’s easy to see why Faber has a soft spot for this building. That’s why the town was thrilled when Justin and Lindsey Smith bought the building in 2014. The Smiths moved here from New York in 2009 when Lindsey’s job with Caspari transferred her to Charlottesville.
They heard about the property and fell in love with it. As you can imagine, it needed a lot of work, as in two years worth of renovation. Justin is an artist, and he applied his considerable skill to the transformation of the old building.
“It was truly a labor of love to renovate this property,” Lindsey said. And it shows. If a building could beam with pride, this one would!
It’s located on Route 6, also known as River Road, and Route 29. If you traveling the Brew Ridge Trail, be sure to stop in!
