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!
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.

There are three separate entertaining areas to this home with a large kitchen and separate dining room.

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!
