Charlottesville House Rental Photos and Description

Totally renovated 5 bedroom house w add'l sleeping spaces sleeps 18

Your own private retreat in the heart of Virginia wine country, with many of Virginia's best wineries within a half an hour drive. Property is 1 1/2 hours from DC and 1/2 hour from Charlottesville and UVA, with amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in front and Thoroughfare Mountain behind. This beautifully renovated farmhouse features 5 bedrooms, a sleeping loft, and 1 other sleeping area making it ideal for family reunions, or adult retreat. Easily accessible but totally private on 85 rolling and wooded acres with a gorgeous pool, pond and hot tub. Not another house in sight!

2 Large living spaces with all new upholstered furniture both with televisions, a separate study and enormous screened in porch perfect for dining or sleeping on the day beds. All beautifully furnished and appointed with antiques and high end furnishings . What sets us apart are our amazing views in every direction, rolling fields, mountains in front and mountain behind. Along with our high end amenities not usually found in a rental property. Fully equipped chef;s kitchen, down comforters and pillows on beds. We provide everything you need for our weekend guests except your food. Firewood, propane for grill, all hot tub chemicals and all cleaning and dish-washing supplies. Beds made and bath and hot tub/pool towels.

For our weekly guests we provide all of the above except for cleaning supplies.

As our many guests have experienced this large home has it all, space to be together and space to be alone.The 40 foot living holds a large family for watching football or movies. The french dining tables slides out to seat 18. When togetherness becomes too much, retreat to the front porch, sit on the bench by the pond, swing in the hammock or hang out by the pool, on the deck, or nap on the screened porch. We strive to ensure that our guest's experience is beyond their expectations at this extraordinary property.

Want a group activity, we provide a fabulous outdoor fire pit, croquet, lawn botche and soccer balls. Bring your clubs to hit golf balls into the pond.

If doing nothing proves too taxing, walk the 85 acres and meet the animals, gather fresh eggs from the barn. Check out the 1830's graveyard or walk in the corn field.

Should you decide to venture off property, visit one of the dozens of wineries in the area, horseback ride at Graves Mountain, hike to the lower or upper water falls on the white oak canyon trail or ride your bike along beautiful country roads.

Still not enough, come back to the property and light a bon fire in the fire pit, play boche, croquet and socccer.

Spend your days hiking the blue ridge, horseback riding, antiquing or visiting the many wineries in the area. Or simply lie by the pool or on the spectacular screen porch in total privacy with views in every direction. . Enjoy shooting stars and an unbelievable night sky from the hot tub and sunsets over the blue ridge from the front porch.

Keywords: Private retreat, private pool, mountain views, wineries, hot tub, sleeps 18.

About The Owner

A lover of all things beautiful especially homes and furnishings I have owned and operated Random Harvest, a high end home furnishings business in the NYC and Dc area for over 30 years.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Charlottesville

We searched for years to find the right combination of easy to get to and that peaceful feeling of knowing you are truly away from it all. This property had unsurpassed views in literally every direction with total privacy. Alas the house was a mess but with such great bones we could not help to want to bring it beyond what it had become.

Unforgetable family reunion at Thoroughfare Farm

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Thoroughfare Farm. I booked it for a milestone birthday celebration and invited my parents, siblings and families. The house is beautiful and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and has plenty of room for preparing, serving, and just visiting. Visiting the animals was a lot of fun for everybody. The hot tub was a great place to end the evening. All the rooms are big and comfortable. We drove up to Skyline Drive for a day hike to the South River Falls, and just had a great hike. Several wineries are very close, but just hanging out in the property was a lot of fun. The location too was convenient from the DC area and from North Carolina. The owner was very responsive and helpful to any inquires. I highly recommend it, and will probably come back again with my family.

Wonderful stay at Thoroughfare Farm

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful stay at Thoroughfare Farm. It is a spectacular sight, replete with all the amenities one could ask for. The property is exquisitely maintained, and the house has so many wonderful details and is styled with taste and class. I cannot recommend it highly enough, a perfect weekend getaway for a group of friends or family.

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

We're a family of four and have stayed three times in the past several years. The house has everything one could possibly need, plus a few of our key wants -- pool, hot tub, space, and (this year) large-screen television for World Cup soccer viewing. We love this place, and it is so convenient from our home in the DC area. Prepare to relax.

Anniversary with entire family

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay and a perfect time and place to celebrate our 50th with all family and several friends who came for a day. It is so easy here o have group activities or time alone. Kitchen is large and so easy to make giant meals together. Kids could not leave the pool except for thunderstorm. We hope to be back. The beauty and the accommodations make it a venue for memories.

Perfect for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a bachelorette party for 13 ladies and it could not have been more perfect. There are several common areas for hanging out. The kitchen is fully stocked and would also be great for a family rendezvous for a holiday or reunion as well as a girl's weekend. The pool, grounds and pond are beautiful and perfect for the summer. If you are looking to go out and about, this is not the house for you because there really isnt that much around, but if you bring the food, drinks and snacks for a weekend of fun, it is the perfect house. I highly recommend it!

Fabulous weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely farmhouse for a girl's weekend in early March. The house is gorgeous both inside and out with a very well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels/linens, and beautiful furniture! It was extremely spacious and felt like home the minute we walked in the front door. The large amount of bedrooms with various sets of beds, including a two rooms with twin beds/bunk beds was ideal for our crowd, since not everyone knew each other. The hot tub on the deck was fantastic for the cold evenings and we would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the screened in porch and pool!

Additionally, as advertised, this farmhouse is located on a large parcel of land where you feel "out in the country." However, with that said, it was only a 1.75 hour drive from DC, grocery stores were within a 15-minute drive, and wineries abound in the area. We also thoroughly enjoyed saying hello and cuddling with the friendly miniature donkeys on the property.

Can't wait to relax in this lovely farmhouse again in the future!
