HISTORIC BARN AT THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE

Ashland Barn Rental Photos and Description

Relaxing 2 bedroom, one bathroom sleeps 6 country retreat.

Whether you are visiting children at Randolph Macon, playing golf or touring the historic areas around Richmond, DC and Charlottesville, this is the place for you.

This historic barn is set within a picturesque historic property between the South Anna River and Stag Creek, just off Route 54 in Virginia. It is 5 minutes to Ashland where, by train you can travel to the heart of DC or drive within 1.5 hours. Richmond is 30 mins, Williamsburg/ Jamestown/ Yorktown takes a little over an hour, Fredericksburg - 45 mins and you can be in Charlottesville (Monticello and wineries) in 1.4 hours. This is one of the most central and safe locations for a tourist.

Why not use this as a base and spend some quality time investigating the birthplace of America or have a peaceful weekend relaxing with little else to worry about than listening to the birds.

The Barn sleeps 4 comfortably with 2 singles,1 double bed and one bathroom. It is fully self contained. It has a full kitchen (sorry, no dishwasher as yet), coffee maker, microwave, full fridge, oven, crockery, cutlery and cooking implements. There is also a washer and dryer for your convenience and a new air conditioner. All linen and towels are provided.

Basic herbs and cooking needs are included along with a starter pack of fresh eggs and bread for making yourself a hearty breakfast. Pre-prepared frozen emergency dinners are available at $5 (honesty system) and a short drive to Ashland will take you to some great restaurants along the railway line as well as the famous music venue (ashlandcoffeeandtea.com/).

Internet and Satellite TV are available however cell phone reception can be sketchy in this area. There is a selection of DVDs which you are welcome to watch as well as a collection of books and magazines to while away the hours. Wander the park gardens and sit by Stag Creek, enjoy the lifestyle for a few days.

About The Owner

I am an Australian living in this beautiful area of Virginia in the USA.

Why The Owner chose Ashland

This is a wonderful place to share. We are away from the rat race in a beautiful historic parkland estate. Time to relax and enjoy what our forefathers were so attracted to. We have golf courses and tennis courts close by and this area is known for its walks and bike rides.

What makes this barn unique

We are so close to the recent american historical places. Monticello, DC, Madison's home, battlegrounds, Williamsburg, King's Dominion and Richmond are all within an easy drive.

Great Getaway with the Comforts of Home!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Barn was excellent, and I highly recommend to anyone looking for alternatives to the traditional hotel room experience. The owner was very accommodating! The space was clean and well decorated, and equipped with everything needed for a great stay, from a starter breakfast and a variety of coffees to board games to play during your visit. Downtown Ashland is a few minutes away and a great place to grab dinner while watching the trains pass by. The Barn is perfect for those seeking to get away from the busyness and relax, while still being close to shopping and city life (Richmond is less than a 30 minute drive).

Wonderful Couple!

  • 5 of 5
The house is absolutely adorable, full of lots of rustic charm. But don't let the word rustic fool you! It has every modern convenience. The beds are very comfortable and all have the finest linens. The neighborhood is beautiful and peaceful. We could not have received better service from Margot. She is sweet and helpful as could be. My husband and I were staying there with our newborn son. Knowing we would be tired and busy, she even did our laundry for us on one occasion. We hope to go back again someday for a vacation
