Guestbook comments from the owner
This house is breath-taking and is perfect for family or groups of friends celebrating! The house has amazing attention to detail, gourmet kitchen, comfortable beds and lots of board games. The fun spot for our group was the game room! From pinball to air hockey to ping pong and bililards...it was so much fun! The house was impeccably clean and inviting, and has lots of history with it. The rolling country side is ideal for relaxing and getting away from stress. If you need items that you left behind, access to nearby highway is easy to get to and travel to other parts of Virginia is easy from the homestead. Nothing is more important than family and friends and spending time with the ones you love and in a home like this only adds to the fond memories. Debbie and Blanton are the best hostess and host! Highly highly recommend this property for rent......you will feel like you are right at home!

We are all about family and friends at Fairview Farm in centrally located western Powhatan, Virginia. My husband is the only child of an only child and this property has been in our family since 1915. We have raised our three beautiful children here and our daughter just got married here. Creating memories are what life is about at Fairview Farm. Many birthdays, celebrations, anniversaries and just recently an engagement took place here. We want you to enjoy every moment of your stay and we promise to make this trip a destination you will remember for years to come!

As a historic point of reference, the property was adjacent to 9,350 acre grant from King George II to William Mayo. Records show that various parcels were given to children and their descendants. Bleinheim, built in the 1740's eventually was purchased by the Blanton family in 1877 and it remains with the family as a Historic Landmark for Powhatan VA. Fairview Farm is still owned by the Blanton family and historic Bleinheim farm will provide a magnificent background for guests who choose to visit. Caretakers are nearby to make sure that you have the perfect retreat and will make sure that we will do everything we can to provide a great atmosphere for your gathering.

The family home place was originally a dairy farm in the 40's and 50's and Mr. Blanton was known throughout the state for his top producing guernsey cows. The barn and silo still stands is a reminder of gentler times that can be yours to enjoy! We wanted our children to enjoy the country so we created a special place where folks can relax and do nothing or play on the property..there is so much to do when you check out the amenities and our country Farm estate is a place where memories continue to be made.

We have a perfect venue for creating great moments and an opportunity to enjoy rolling hills, a beautiful water view, pastures and lots of the quiet Virginia country side!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this estate in 1915

Fairview provides stunning views from every window and an unmatched country charm. Enjoy wraparound porches, massive decking with screened gazebo with many sitting areas and a stone patio garden.

It is surrounded by 100 acres of farm and woodland and has scenic views of a four and a half acre large pond with dock. This home offers a warm 'homey' ambiance for entertaining, just relaxing or just getting away from it all. We have Wifi and cable with two large flat screen TVs. A unique feature is a separate 1400 square foot game room with exercise equipment, ping pong, air hockey, darts, play games and chill with the stereo. Great place to escape or entertain!

Fairview Farm is a family affair. Our son is pictured above with his fiance who will be marrying at the farm next year and our other daughter is getting married this year. We are putting the finishing touches on a barn that will be used for these types of events. Check us out on Facebook and Fairview Farm Powhatan on Pinterest. We are providing a rustic chic wedding venue Our rental rates on this site do not include the property as a venue.

There are three separate entertaining areas to this home with a large kitchen and separate dining room. There is a cozy spacious den with gaming table, sitting area, stone fireplace with mountain stone from the Shenandoah valley and a gas insert. The Florida room is 13 X 20 and the media/living room also has a flat screen TV.

The Master Suite includes an office/parlor, with separate sleeping area. The master bath was designed with all modern comforts in mind, large jacuzzi tub with seated tile shower and separate vanity area.

Realtors have said that this is the perfect countryside Farmhouse setting because the integrity of the structure has been preserved. From the antique hoosier in the kitchen to the ornate Victorian walnut bed on the second level, it has original charm combined with modern amenities. 1915 meets 2012 in a good way.

There are many recreational activities outside the property such as Bear Creek Lake State park (15 minutes away), Mill Quarter plantation golf course (15 minutes), roughly a 45 minute drive to the battlefields where Lee surrendered to Grant in Appomattox and an hour drive to downtown Richmond where history, shopping, our state capital and nightspots and restaurants thrive.

Or when you pull into the long driveway lined with apple trees at Fairview you may just want to put your feet up and relax.

There is nothing more incredible than sitting on the front porch in rocking chairs at night, gazing at the stars and listening to the sounds of nature.

Bring your camera because this is the country and expect to see abundant wildlife. As fruit trees are on the property you are more than welcome to snack on our apples as the deer do daily.

There are wrap around porches, a swing where 'yarns' have been spun, a large screened in gazebo with furnishings, a stone patio and spectacular sunsets.

The property has a natural warmth that spreads from the inside to the outside of the estate. It can be yours to enjoy!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here over the 4th of July weekend for a wedding that was in town. The house is beautiful, has full amenities and was a great get away from the hustle and bustle. Having coffee on the deck in the morning, hearing the cows "mooing" , playing in the game room, reading a book, star gazing at night by the fire pit, all made this stay incredible. My daughter played on the tree swing most of the time and enjoyed being out in the country. I highly recommend this "farmhouse" for a wedding, special event, or get away!

Family wedding weekend

  • 4 of 5
My family and I traveled from New York State to Virginia for my sister's wedding. There was 5 adults and three children ages 6, 3 and 2.

The farmhouse was great for our extended family. We had many questions and the owners were so responsive and pleasant throughout our stay. The children loved the ability to run an play especially after a 12 hour car ride.

There were many areas for everyone to find a space to do whatever suited them. The game room was great with an amazing amount of space. Pool, air hockey and the 50's theme was so much fun.

The main farmhouse has plenty of room and the fireplace room is as cozy as can be. Some of us gravitated to the Florida room where I instantly fell in love with the wicker furnature. That was really the best part, each room was comfortable, cozy and well appointed.

When booking and making payment, the owners were so responsive and helpful. Great place to stay!

A Beautiful, Unique Property!

  • 5 of 5
The property was definitely large enough for our Family Reunion! The house is well-maintained and clean, with warm and inviting rooms. The Kitchen and large Dining Room are great for big family meals. There are many rooms to relax in and enough TV's to keep everyone happy. The Game Room has an array of activities and is great place to hang out! The multiple porches and decks offer tranquil views of the surrounding area, and there are many picturesque photo ops! The New Barn is a great entertaining space and has old world charm with modern conveniences.

Girl's Getaway in the Country

Girl's Getaway in the Country
  • 5 of 5
Every year, my graduate school friends and I find a common location to spend a weekend together. This year we chose Virginia (my home state), and I was responsible for finding a location. Right from the start I was delighted with Fairview Farm. The owners were very responsive when I asked initial questions (many other owners were not), and of course the pictures are lovely.

Our group of 7 plus an infant spent 3 nights at the farm. We cooked, we took walks, and of course we spent many hours just talking in the comfortable living room with the fireplace. We could see cows and hay bales out of the windows (fun for us city-dwellers). Only two of us ended up having to share a bed. We of course were perfectly happy, but we also all agreed that the farm (which they have named Fairview) would be an absolutely perfect location for a wedding. We were invited by the owner to peruse the barn, which was set for a reception. It was really special -- country tables and high ceilings with a chandelier. We didn't end up playing any games, but were impressed by the gameroom.

All told, we had a great time! I would recommend this for any women's groups who, like us, need a little quiet away from our families and cities.

So peaceful, so tranquil....

  • 5 of 5
Ou r family gathered this past week-end and were so very, very happy we decided to rent Fairview. The property is absolutely gorgeous. Lots of outdoor space to gather. I personally sat on the front porch in the swing twice, watching the deer roaming around, feeling the gentle breeze. Just what I wanted! Reminded me of my grandmother's house! The kitchen is well-stocked. Each room is appointed with antiques, but paired with the contemporary furniture, everything is comfortable, not stuffy. There were 9 of us and there were enough rooms that we could be together or seperate into little groups and not feel on top of each other all the time. The game room is so much fun. The men gathered there most nights playing pool or ping pong. My father-in-law and I had 3 competitive rounds of air hockey. What fun! And wait 'til you see all of the collectables! They thought of everything to make our stay just perfect! I highly recommend Fairview.

Perfectly Lovely

  • 5 of 5
We were looking on VRBO for a place for our family to stay for the weekend of our small (20 people) family wedding. When we discovered Fairview Farm, we quickly realized that it would also be a wonderful place to have the wedding. We had no idea just how special it would turn out to be.

Each of the guests commented on the beauty of the place, and felt completely at home. The amenities were perfect both for our active teenagers and for weary travelers. The views in every direction were lovely, and made fantastic backdrops for family photos.

The owners property is very nearby, and they let us know that they would be available to help with any problems that should occur. The property is clean and beautifully maintained, and thoughtful touches throughout made our stay magical. It wouldn't surprise me to find that the beautiful double rainbow that graced our last evening on the deck was their doing as well. We could not have dreamed up a lovelier place.

Property is central to Farmville, Midlothian, Richmond, Cumberland, Amelia, Powhatan, Charlottesville & Appomattox. Walmart just opened in Powhatan and is 20 minutes away which is just close enough in our opinion. There are grocery stores, a cinema either in Farmville or Midlothian 30 minutes either direction. Medical facilities are 15 minutes away, hospital is withinj 30 minutes a way. Shopping is all around if you really want to go out. Bowling is 25 minutes toward Midlothian. Thanks to 288 being completed Powhatan is quickly becoming the outer hub of all the activity that Richmond Virignia offers..perfect vacation...perfect retreat venue. View map for further details....
