100 ACRE RESTORED HISTORIC FARM HOUSE AT KERR LAKE - HORSES, TRAILS, HOT TUB

Kerr Lake Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

This one of a kind fully restored historic farm house is nestled in the heart of 100 acres of large trees, hay fields and conservation forest only an hour away from Durham and Raleigh. The property, on the National Historic Registry, was once a tobacco farm, whose store, drying sheds and outbuildings still dot the property. A fishing pond sits off the back porch surrounded by horse pasture, while wooded paths lead you to a private dock on a secluded finger of Kerr Lake.

The air conditioned, 2,700 square foot house has a gourmet kitchen with granite counters, custom maple/cherry cabinets, a large island with bar stools and a sunroom with fireplace - a perfect gathering place to watch and socialize with your cooks. The front porch with porch swing is a perfect place to relax and watch the wild life pass by. The back porch houses a private hot tub, where you can relax with a view of the pond and surrounding field, home to ducks, geese and horses and the occasional deer. A farmhouse table sits in the dining room with seating for eight, or dine alfresco: two oversized hardwood picnic tables off the back porch have seating for 16.

Four bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen, 2 twin and 2 bunk beds) offer plenty of sleeping options. A perfect children's room has two sets of bunk beds with ample play space. Board games, an extensive DVD library, basketball net, and internet with WiFi are other entertainment options.

With so much space to explore, we offer, for a fee, the use of our golf cart. Make trips to the lake easy - load the coolers, chairs and gear in the back and enjoy the ride!

Restaurants, grocery stores and shopping are located 10 minutes away in Clarksville, VA. Spend a day on the lake - boat rentals are available in town as well.

Linens are provided.

We are committed to preserving the natural and historical beauty of this rare estate. As such, we prohibit the use of ATVs or motorbikes on the property.

Perfect for gatherings, the property is available for special events, weddings, family reunions and corporate retreats.

We are a family of 6 that live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Originally from Pennsylvania and Hawaii, we spent time in Boston before coming to North Carolina.

Erin Furr purchased this farmhouse in 2008

We fell in love with this property the moment we set our eyes on it. Our four kids and two dogs have had the best times of their lives running, exploring, sharing campfires, swimming and fishing together. We believe the property is magical.

When we spend time at our farm, we feel transported to a simpler time where we gather together, slow down and enjoy one another. A family game of softball or basketball, fishing or climbing trees makes for a perfect way to spend the day. Watching the sun go down with a glass of wine on the front porch is heavenly. After purchasing the property, we placed the surrounding fields and old growth forests into a conservation trust to preserve the land for the enjoyment of future generations.

EXCELLENT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Each year, my family tries to meet up at a central location and take a week of vacation. It is always a challenge to find a location suitable for a large group for a reasonable price. Tunstall Farm turned out to be a perfect choice. The property was very well taken care of and the amenities were absolutely excellent. Their pet policy was very flexible and as such our dogs were able to enjoy all 100 acres as well. The close proximity to Kerr Lake allowed us to bring our boat. We were able to use a few of the boat ramps in the local area that were very close to the property. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to get away from it all. We are definitely looking forward to returning for future vacations!

GREAT FAMILY REUNION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I, along with our families "met in the middle" between NC and DC. We had 2 couples and 4 girls. The house was charming and the property breathtaking. We all want to go back again next year. Thanks for a great stay!

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the farm. Our grandchildren had a fantastic time fishing, feeding the horses and riding on the golf cart. Our grandson asked us to bring his toys from home, because he wanted to stay. It is a great family vacation.

AN INCREDIBLE PROPERTY - WELL MAINTAINED AND PRIVATE!

  • 5 of 5
I was so pleased to have found some an amazing property for my husband's surprise party. We had another couple there with us, and even though it was raining, we always had something to do. We in particular liked playing "The Newly Wed Game." For the first evening, we spent a lot of time chatting over wine before retiring. Sadly, the rain was falling for most of Saturdays which kept us indoors, but it was okay. We did manage to go and explore the other historical components which was quite fun. We rode 2 golf cards down to the river and sat for awhile. Throughout this time, if I had any question with the owner, she was immediately available via email to answer my question.

The home itself is gorgeous. We didn't find the guest book, or other details about the historical part of it, but this was okay. The shower upstairs does take a long time to get warm, but because you are in country life, it didn't seem to bother any of us.

The second night was spent with the firepit and then in the hottub. Fun! Fun! Fun! Really, this was one of my most memorable trips to this area. I cannot recommend the enough. Not only is the property amazing, but having the owners (Erin) so available made it a breeze. Oh! The best part really is the kitchen. If you love to gather round in the kitchen, you will feel right at home.

We will definitely return.

WONDERFUL SPRING BREAK RETREAT FOR OUR TWO FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We just spent five days of our Spring Break at the Tunstall Farm property and had a wonderful time. We were two families from Northern Virginia looking for a low key vacation with outdoor time and this place completely met our expectations. We had four adults and seven children (ages 6-13) and the house fit us perfectly. The descriptions and photos online were very accurate and the house was well maintained and stocked. The additional website listed is definitely worth checking out for more details about the property. The kitchen was very modern and well equipped, so much so it felt more like a friend's house than a rental. The layout of the house worked great for our families, but its not your typical modern home so people who are expecting private bathrooms adjacent to the bedrooms might be disappointed. This was not an issue for us as we loved the old house feel and were happy to share bathrooms.

Highlights from our trip. We brought our bikes and had fun riding down to the dock at the lake - this trail was also easily walkable. We loved trying the fishing on the pond and the kids especially spent a lot of time in the boat on the pond. The kids also loved exploring in the woods and playing in the creeks. We had several nights where we enjoyed fires in the fire pit, complete with s'mores. The hot tub was definitely a hit, although it was not the newest. The horses were great fun to watch in the pasture which was very close to the house. They were very social, but gentle so we felt comfortable with the kids interacting with them. Most of us barely left the property during the trip, but one day we did venture off to the nearby state park which had nice trails for hiking or biking on and a playground which the children enjoyed. Next time we'd love to rent canoes or kayaks and spend more time on the lake but we just ran out of time.

Erin, the property manager, was responsive and easy to work with. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a private country retreat and hope that we can make it back there ourselves soon.

THE PERFECT GETAWAY!!!

We had such a wonderful time at Tunstall Farms! We took six 11 year old boys with us to celebrate my son's birthday and it was a hit. The boys were kept busy with all the adventurous things to do. Not a detail over looked in this wonderful place! We will be back for sure!
