About M.J. Tierney

Older, established, semi-retired couple, we love sharing our beautiful home with friends, family and others who are looking for a getaway!

M.J. Tierney purchased this house in 2015

Why M.J. Tierney chose Locust Grove

Everything is open and on one level for those who are older, or who have small children. We love sitting on the deck looking out on the lake.

What makes this house unique

You are only a little over an hour from D.C. and Richmond. The immediate area is full of things to do - history, golf, wineries, you name it!

A perfect place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

MJ was so helpful all throughout our visit. Whenever we had a question all I had to do was text her. And she checked in with us, too, just to make sure everything was OK. The home had everything we needed, even those little extras that are often missing in rental homes, like condiments, butter, salad dressing, plastic wrap and baggies. Even the spices I needed to cook our Thanksgiving dinner were already there. The kayaks and paddle boat were fun and we also enjoyed the wide selection of DVD's and board games.

We didn’t ha e any issues checking in and out. My friends and I (and the dog) had a blast. The dog had a blast swimming, the paddle boat and other things were super fun to use. The grill made for an awesome dinner. The community is very friendly and private. Definitely would go back

Great stay in Virginia!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at MJ's house on a beautiful lake and found everything clean and tidy! MJ was easy to communicate with and responsive. The weather was rainy so we were unable to experience the community much, but we did visit Richmond, Monticello and Fredericksburg and found MJ's house convenient to all three locations.

Wonderful stay at The Landing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at The Landing! The house was well-equipped. The owners have provided all of the basics, plus many additional items you may have forgotten at home. We enjoyed touring the local battlefields in the mornings and spending the afternoons on the lake. Our family loved the paddleboat, kayaks and tubes available for floating around. We had a relaxing end to the summer and will definitely be back!

Great place to enjoy family and make lasting memories!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for two couples to share! We were able to host a small family reunion and surprise our Mother for her 75th birthday! Lots of outdoor spaces to gather. Indoor spaces full of quaint details and provided all we needed during our stay. We had a great time. Thank you for letting us share your home. The memories are priceless!
