Why Tom Duncan chose Monterey

Thank you for considering a stay at Freedom Hill Farm on Lantz Mountain in Mill Gap, Va - my name is Tom Duncan and I will be your host.

About 5 years ago, I was traveling through Bath County and decided to make a detour to see what Monterey & Highland County was all about. To say I was overwhelmed with the natural beauty of the mountains and pastures would be quite accurate. I immediately launched a search to locate a site for my new home and was lucky enough to locate raw land that extended from the valley bottom to the top of the mountain. During my final visit, prior to signing the closing documents I walked the land asking myself if I really wanted to take on this task. Somehow, the pair of American Eagles flying over my head seemed to speed up my affirmative decision.

I had always wanted a place with a nice view, and, well, now I have a better than magnificent view from Lantz Mountain across the southern Blue Grass valley to Back Creek mountain. Every window in my rental unit shares a portion of this view of Paradise and it awaits every visitor. I enjoy my wildlife and birds every day and want you to do the same. I set no agendas for my guests except to try and have you kick back and relax.

Getting to Freedom Hill Farm will be the easy part of your journey, trying to leave to return home might prove to be a

little more difficult.

Hope to see you soon!

Tom Duncan

enjoyable weekend

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at this rental. The owner, Tom, is very personable and accessible and met us as soon as we arrived. His house is across the driveway from the rental, but he does not intrude on your privacy at all. The accommodations were clean and more than sufficient. Beds were very comfy. Bedroom and bathroom on the lower floor are accessible via inside steps and also from outside. Lots of sleeping and sitting options upstairs, along with a nice kitchen and bathroom upstairs. Lovely little deck, and also a covered car-port. No a/c, but I doubt you would want it often - lots of windows and ceiling fans provide ample air circulation. The views are wonderful. Our "host" cat accompanied us on our walks up the mountain, and down the driveway (multiple times) - we are sure he is part sheepdog. We enjoyed a no-mosquitos weekend, the many birds at Tom's many feeders and bird-houses, deer, a wondering raccoon, a surreal display of lightening bugs, and great star-gazing. We even had a bonus wheel-wash, courtesy of the very small ford one needs to cross at the bottom of the driveway. The small town of Monterrey has some cute shops and very friendly people. We enjoyed driving around the area - Tom has suggestions for some scenic tours. We were very pleased with our weekend away.

Back to Nature!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was not our usual vacation, but boy did we enjoy "Freedom Hill Farm"!! This location has amazing views, wild life, great bird-watching, and 3 ponds for fishing! Tom was very friendly and helpful! We went to see everything he mentioned including the Homestead Resort & Spa (what a photo opp), we visited a trout farm, ate at Jason's, took several scenic drives. Enjoyed seeing cows, sheep, & their babies, visited a Victorian Town (homes were beautiful)!
The property was well taken care of, clean, spacious, and very cozy! Tatter, the cat, was a great "GREETER" every morning!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed for 3 nights and did not want to leave. Tom, the homeowner takes great care to make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive and take a personal tour. He gave us wonderful suggestions on where to go and what to see around to get the most of our vacation time. This cabin really does have everything you could want and more, and its just beautiful. We also enjoyed the trails during the day and relaxing outside at night with the cool fresh air and skies with bright stars. We would definitely recommend this property for a perfect and peaceful getaway.
Oh, and also be prepared to fall on love with Tater the cat who will try to adopt and take care of your family :))

We spent a wonderful, restful long weekend at this beautiful location. The accommodations are clean and spacious with an extra separate bedroom with bath downstairs with its own entrance. The owner, Tom, is attentive to the needs of his guests and interesting to get to know. If you want a really nice place with privacy, serenity and beauty conveniently located in gorgeous Highland County, this place is for you!

Peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5
This is one beautiful place! After traveling from Texas and staying in the usual noisy hotels with uncomfortable beds, this place was just perfect. Tom had the fire going in the wood burning stove and you felt like you were just coming home! The beds were comfortable, the place was super clean, and it was nice and cozy. It was perfect. It's very quiet and the scenery cannot be beat. If you like to hike, watch the birds, and just hang out, this is the place. The pictures don't do it justice. We were all very comfortable and enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you Tom for making us feel so welcome and for sharing your beautiful place with us.

Tom also has a friendly orange cat that we liked very much. We thought the cat was seriously considering a road trip to Texas.

Awesome fall retreat

  • 5 of 5
Came down for the weekend with my best friend and sister for a weekend get away, and we all had a wonderful time. The view was breath taking, the cabin was clean and spacious. It had everything we needed, a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, an awesome view.

Tom was super friendly and told us were all the local spots were and the things to do in the area.

It was an awesome deal, and would totally recommend it to friends and family.
