I stayed here while searching for a home in Charlottesville. It was nearly perfect for my needs:
Clean, well-lit, and well maintained, both in the home and the exterior of the property.
Everything needed is here, including cable, phone, and internet.
My dog was welcome and felt at home. There is a fenced in area for her and plenty of room to run around in the woods.
There are two wineries just down the street, and two more a bit further in Barboursville.
You will feel as though you are out in the woods, while still being very close to towns.
There is a series of hiking trails only a few minutes away.
Plenty of cookware and a charcoal grill outside. The deck and first floor layout is good for relaxation or entertaining.
If you like sleep number beds, the master bedroom bed is nice and has two selectors.
Wood floors and the large bedrooms are nice touches.
The area water has high iron content. Joan helps mitigate this with a water softening system.
As with any place north of Charlottesville, it can take time to get to downtown or the other side of town. It is a pretty quick drive to stores and restaurants on the north side of town and even quicker to Ruckersville, but the constant upgrades and expansion along Hwy 29 make for a longer commute (approx 30 min). This will be inconsequential once the new bypass is complete.
Expect to dine at a large kitchen island counter as opposed to a traditional table.
Cell phone reception is week.
I cannot vouch for how great is is as a one or two night vacation, but it is superb for stays of a week or longer. There is a definite feel of "getting away from it all" and I would stay again.
