Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was so comfortable, and the landscape was truly beautiful. We had a great time eating outside and roasting s'mores. The kids had a terrific time romping around outside, and swinging on the tire swing. We will certainly be back

Wonderful, Relaxing Family Vacation at Rockwood

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rockwood. Before even entering the home, we were greeted by the beautiful landscape, including tire swing and pond and acres of lush green land. Upon entering, we were greeted by a nice welcome note from Ann, farm fresh eggs, wine and fresh baked cookies. As we settled in and unpacked, we discovered the comfortable rooms, great library and most surprising, kids play room stocked with toys and a baby gate.

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting to relax and unwind. The kids enjoyed the property and took full advantage of the lake and the swings. Us adults enjoyed relaxing in the homey living room watching movies that were provided. We missed cable initially, but quickly adjusted and just enjoyed each other. From top to bottom, it more than met our expectations and needs.

Ann was a joy to work with and we're looking forward to our next stay!

This house offers a comfortable and relaxed setting in the mountains. We were close to necessities and yet had plenty of privacy to play and enjoy each other. This is a great vacation for families who love the outdoors and a sound sleep at night!

A retreat from the hustle of DC

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a quick escape from DC for the long Memorial Day weekend and we found it at Rockwood Farm. Ann was a very welcoming host and gave us plenty of tips on how to make the most of our stay. The kids loved the fresh baked cookies and we were happy with the farm fresh eggs and wine. We spent 2 relaxing days with a visit to Monticello, s'mores at the fire pit, lounging on the grass reading, fishing in the pond (both kids caught 2 fish each), watching a family friendly movie, and hours on the tire swing. It is a lovely home which is well stocked. We share a bathroom at home so only one bath was not a problem. Beds were so comfortable we slept for 11 hours one night. Easy drive to Montpelier and to Monticello if you want to soak up some colonial history and also easy access to Skyline Drive for hiking and beautiful vistas. We will definitely be back.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This home was exactly what we were looking for...a clean, comfortable home in a beautiful country setting. We were delighted with our warm welcome of cookies, fresh eggs and summer vegetables from the owner's nearby farm. The kids (ages 9,7 and 3) had so much fun fishing, catching fireflies and just running around outside. There was a lot of room for them to wander and explore.

The owners were very helpful with our questions and really thought of everything that guests could possibly need. Linens felt new and clean. We were there during a heat wave (temps >100) but the house was always comfortable and cool. TV reception was poor but there were a lot of DVDs and we never even missed it.

We were really surprised at how much there was to do in the area. We went hiking in Shenandoah, saw beautiful caverns, visited wineries and even stayed an extra day to visit Monticello.

We have stayed at a lot of rental homes but this was definitely a favorite.

A lovely weekend in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5
The house is charming, nicely decorated, and homey. The grounds are really nice, especially the pond and the view of the pond from the porch. The beds are comfortable. The air is fresh and you can't help but feel relaxed and removed from all the usual distractions.

Lovely home in the country

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for New Year's Eve weekend and had a wonderful time. Ann had fresh eggs, a bottle of wine and chocolate chip cookies for us upon arrival. The home is lovely, well-maintained and very cozy, with a well-stocked kitchen. The night sky is amazing with very little light pollution. I haven't seen a sky like that in years-what a treat!
