Overview

Farmville Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come relax in our Circa 1823 Farmhouse situated on 75 acres in Amelia County. House has two bedrooms upstairs, one with queen bed and the other bedroom has a double and two twins. There is a detached studio that could possibly sleep two, but all bathrooms are in the main house. Sit out in the yard, overlooking our large pond and enjoy the wildlife. Full use of shared kitchen available, but we are not a B&B. This would be a great place for small weddings for an additional fee. Great for girlfriend get-a-ways and retreats. Visit with the owners in their stunning log home located near the main house.***PLEASE SEE VIDEO LINK AT BOTTOM OF PAGE****

Keywords: This historic house, with Civil War ties, is situated on 75 acres in Amelia County Virginia. Much of the house is still original and shows the craftsmanship used to build it almost 200 years ago. Enjoy relaxing on the lawn or just go for walks around the farm. Bird Grove would also be a great place for a small wedding, girlfriend get-a-ways, crafting and retreats. Quietness and closeness to nature is one of the many pleasures you will enjoy while staying here.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About The Owner

This was my weekend house until I built my Dream Log Home up on the hill.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 1986

Why The Owner chose Farmville

I have always loved the outdoors and wanted a farm for my horses and had not planned on renting to anyone. However, after moving into our log home, this beautiful house and historic property is too special to not be enjoyed by others.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Quiet! End of a road property. So relaxing. Off the beaten path. This farm was formerly owned by the cartoonist, Jeff McNalley, of the cartoon 'Shoe' and he used the summer kitchen/studio to draw his cartoons.

Beautiful and secluded!

It was a pleasure to stay somewhere rich with history. It is a beautiful property with so many original architectural details. I could almost picture the belle of the ball walking down the main hall stairs in her hoop skirts!

Yes there are only two bedrooms, but they are VERY large, and each had its own bathroom. Oh, and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen had all the crockery, glassware, and utensils one needed.

Ruth was very easy to communicate with, and sent excellent directions.

Beautiful

We travelled to the area from Florida. This is a truly gorgeous place, the views, horses, wildlife and of course the house made for a unique visit to the area. The house is filled with objects and reminders of country life in the past. Hosts are very friendly and accommodating. I loved the landscaping, the charming kitchen, the layout of the house, and how the place just invites you to explore.

What an enchanted place.

  • 5 of 5
We were able to stay only one night during our trip. For those of you not familiar with the area, accomodations are scarce and the 'Econo lodge' is one of your few choices----DO NOT DO IT! This is a chance of a lifetime to stay in such a grand home, on such a beautiful property, with the best hosts ever. There is no other spot to enjoy staying in for us in this area. You will be thankful you didn't take the cracker box hotel route. Just gorgeous.

My cousin and I just returned from a wonderful long weekend at the Bird Grove Farm. The property was just what we needed for a peaceful and quiet getaway. We also were able to enjoy some of the surrounding historical sites as well as a day of shopping in Farmville. Our hosts were very accommodating and provided everything needed for our wonderful stay. Will definitely return for another visit and highly recommend for others to enjoy!!!
