Charlottesville Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Stunning Mountain Views Enclose This Welcoming Retreat From The World

Lovely 1898 country estate home located in the historic Keswick area, Turkey Run Farm is convenient to Charlottesville, but far enough away for amazing peace and quiet, and night skies. Very accessible to Monticello, Montpelier, many of the area’s most celebrated vineyards and cideries, the University of Virginia, the historic Charlottesville downtown, the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Skyline Parkway. Fantastic views of the Southwest Mountains can be enjoyed from several vantage points, complete with regular sightings of wild turkeys, albino deer and Bald Eagles. A wonderful, relaxing place to walk and ride bikes, Turkey Run Farm is a gracious and welcoming environment for family reunions, smaller wedding receptions and company retreats.

Four private bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and living room with fireplace are located on the main floor, with a stone family room and large farm kitchen in the English basement. Front and rear porches and stone terrace offer exquisite, unsullied views of the Southwest Mountains.

About Richard Davis

Richard Davis, the owner, grew up on a horse and cattle farm in nearby Gordonsville area and graduated from the University of Virginia. He has both worked in aviation and the space program for years and has traveled extensively. Richard has always found the Blue Ridge Mountains to be incredibly beautiful and inspiring. He spent years looking for a place in the area that met his dreams and was very excited to find Turkey Run Farm when it recently became available. He and his sister Deborah McLeod, who manages the property for him during his absences, have spent the past year restoring and furnishing it for guests as well as Richard's family's own part time use.

Richard Davis purchased this farmhouse in 2013

Why Richard Davis chose Charlottesville

Richard and his four children tremendously enjoy the nature there, the dramatic views of the mountains, the extensive landscape plantings all around the house, a place for the children to explore nature, the amazing clear views of the night skies, the graceful presence of history in the house, and most importantly, the incredible peace and quiet of the surroundings.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Turkey Run's greatest benefit is the tranquility that can be experienced from its outdoor spaces - the terrace swing or the ease of the front porch chairs. The only sounds that can be heard are the calls of birds and the rush of the wind.

Beautiful stay at Turkey Run Farm!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful farmhouse outside of Charlottesville this past weekend for a friends' wedding in nearby Barboursville. There were 3 other couples staying with us, so 8 adults total in the house. Wow, what a beautiful place it was. Full of charm and appeal just like the pictures show. We had fun on the swings out back, biking on the beautiful winding roads all around the property, and just enjoying one another's company on the porches, patio, and quaint, basement farmhouse-style kitchen and family room. I want to come back again with our kids- its a perfect country getaway for anyone!! There was more than enough space to spread out, even with 8 people we never felt cramped or crowded. Warm, welcoming, and beautiful…as the leaves were just turning in early October. I can't give this place enough stars!

girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic girls weekend at turkey run farm! There were 8 of us total and we fit comfortably with 2 to a room! We went wine tasting at the nearby Keswick and barboursville vineyards and castle hill cidery all day Saturday and came back to a cozy and warm farm house welcoming us and helping us relax. We sat on the porch and watched the sun setting and were able to see deer and wild turkey in the yard and up the driveway. It was so peaceful and a wonderfully relaxing time. Recommended for people who want to get away from technology for a weekend and focus on spending time together with their loved ones in a house full of history, wildlife, and tons of character!

Beautiful home and grounds - a peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5
The descriptions of the listing couldn't possibly convey the serenity and beauty of this old farmhouse and its surroundings. Everything was clean and amenities were as listed. The owner was gracious and very helpful with any questions we had.

We went to Monticello and the Michie tavern, our kids went to Kings Dominion (about an hour away) for a day, we hiked at Humpback Rock, and spent lots of time on the grounds at UVA. It is a beautiful part of the country.

I hope we'll be back in the future!

Lovely family weekend

  • 5 of 5
My daughters, their families and I recently spent a wonderful weekend at Turkey Run. The house was lovely with gorgeous views of the mountains; the porch, yard and creek were the biggest hits, especially with the grandchildren, ages 9, 7, 5, and 1. I don't think we saw the boys during most of our stay as they were in the treehouse being pirates. The house fit all 7 of us beautifully. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this home for my bachelorette party and it was perfect! My girl friends and I had a lovely weekend enjoying the gorgeous views from the porches and relaxing. The house is perfect for eight people, with a beautiful kitchen and plenty of room. Deborah checked on us before we arrived and was a lovely host. She even left a veil on the mailbox for us! I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Idyllic house and surroundings

  • 5 of 5
We were here over the 4th of July weekend with another family and had a wonderful time. We especially enjoyed the large covered porch, outdoor patio for dining, and swinging bench. Deborah made it very easy and comfortable for us, and the grounds are really expansive and idyllic. Everything in the house is well maintained and sparkling clean. (Also, don't miss the nearby cider place!)

Turkey Run Farm is located in a beautiful, serene rural setting nestled into a ridge that is part of the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There are many attractions in all directions from the farm, and much to keep guests busy, although kicking back and doing nothing at all but taking in nature may be the most perfect getaway of all. There are a number of good antique stores in the area, and countless wineries have grown up around the farm. There are several art galleries and museums. The Klughe-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Museum is about 10 miles away on Rt 250. The Fralin Museum is located in the University of Virginia campus, and is an important sight to take in. Nightlife venues abound in Charlottesville, as well as fabulous restaurants to sample a variety of fare. (The Charlottesville region is highly committed to locally grown foods and sustainable agriculture and emphasizes that on menus.) There are many wonderful hikes to take along the Blue Ridge. Old Rag Mountain is a big favorite, but there are other trails that include waterfalls and other unique features. A half hour drive to Scottsville will provide an opportunity to rent rafts or canoes to navigate the waters of the James River. Another half hour drive to Boars Head offers a chance to go Hot Air Ballooning. With a slightly longer drive to Waynesboro, one can try out flight in a glider plane. The farm itself offers space for more intimate private events on its grounds and interior spaces, but for grander events, Castle Hill Cider and Keswick Hall are located conveniently right down the road.
