Tappahannock Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Travelers Rest is listed in the King & Queen book of historical homes. There are two houses. The main house was build in 1860. The original house, which is now the guest house was build in 1750. This historical home will set you back in time, with its old woodwork and lavish you with all the modern comforts.

Travelers Rests name comes from it being a place George Washington would stop and rest when he was traveling between Washington and Williamsburg. Travelers Rest Farm promises georgeous sunrises and relaxing sunsets. Take a chair and enjoy the views that made us fall in love with this place.

You can enjoy this peaceful place by yourself, with family and/or friends. If you desire to hide out this is your place. If you would like to have a little activity ........horse riding, yoga, get a massage or take floral design classes from a German master florist.

This 1760 house is a beautiful renovated with two bedrooms upstairs. One bedroom has a king size bed, the other bedroom has two twin size beds, sharing the bathroom. Downstairs is a full kitchen, another bathroom, laundry room and living room. Additional guest can be easily accommodated in this historical home.

Christmas Surprise

The vacation experience was better than what we had expected. The owners decorated the house in Christmas lights, a beautiful tree and had chopped wood for the fire place. The home is absolutely charming and the farm is beautiful. We enjoyed petting the horses and walking the grounds. The beds were very comfortable and we felt completely at home. We will be visiting again for sure.

Charming weekend get-away. Agnes allows for privacy while also offering horse back riding and floral classes if interested. Her floral work can be seen throughout the cottage. Beautiful views at sunrise and sunset. My Husky dog did not want to leave!

What a wonderful stay at Travelers Rest over the Thanksgiving weekend .My wife and I along with our dog met up with my son and his wife and our two grandchildren. We hiked,played a family football game,met the horses and of course the wonderful family dogs. This was such a unique Thanksgiving. My son called last night and said this was the most memorable Thanksgiving ever! And we can't forget the multitalented Agnes She and her lovely family could not have been more accomodating.
Owner's Response: Dear Grim Family,

My three sisters and I (coming from 4 different states) had a wonderful weekend together at Travelers Rest. The guest house was charming and spacious, with beautiful grounds for evening strolls and morning coffee, and a good central location for exploring Charlottesville and Richmond. Agnes was accommodating and gracious, with suggestions specific to our interests. We would love to return for another reunion.
