We absolutely loved our stay at this property. The home is on a beautiful, sprawling farm. The huge wraparound porch was perfect for hanging out and enjoying the picturesque views. We had planned to hike the Old Rag trail, but opted to stay at the property and spend the day exploring and playing games outside. The owner was extremely helpful and very easy to work with. The house is well-equipped and very spacious. We 100% recommend this house to anyone looking for a great mountain getaway at an awesome price.
This property was bliss for our two families. The hills and pastures provided amazing views and plenty of space to roam for kids, dog and adults. The house had everything we needed and offered plenty of space to spread out. Zann was a most gracious and warm host. We will be back. Thank you Zann for your hospitality and a wonderful stay.
This house was perfect for our group of 8 for a relaxing and fun weekend. We enjoyed the plenty of space for games with our whole group and enjoyed sitting outside enjoying the views and taking advantage of the fire pit.
The house easily and comfortably slept everyone in our group. Ms Nelson was very helpful and friendly in our planning process. Her assistant Joyce met us when we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our time.
Highly recommended and I think many in our group look forward to finding time to come visit again.
This was a great place to go for a nice quiet time... The pool was great. (salt water) the property was great, and most of all the host was wonderful! Zann is so full of knowledge, and her property is full of history! The house is in great shape, and although I was hoping to see a ghost, I didn't... The house has everything we needed, right down to paper plate mats... I would recommend this to anyone!
Our host Zann Nelson was the most wonderful person. She gave us alot of history of the property and was wonderful to conversate with. the house and property were amazing and we got to do alot at different places because of the central location the only bad part was leaving we cannot wait to go back next year
We have a family of five and really enjoyed our stay at the farm. The location and surroundings are simple, quiet, and beautiful. The kids loved the pool and running up and down the hills. We explored the many historic sites that were within an hours drive and even went to DC one day. It takes about an hour and a half (longer during rush hour). The house was clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. My daughter asked if we could come back next year!
At the farm, enjoy long walks, fishing, sledding, cookouts, night sky watching, wildlife viewing, croquet, reading and relaxing.
Nearby there are a multitude of possibilities including Historic sites (Montpelier, Ellwood Manor, Monticello, Civil War Battlefields); Natural sites (Skyline Drive, Old Rag - hiking), Big Meadows; Snow skiing/boarding (Wintergreen and Massanutten); Fine dining (several 4 Star restaurants in nearby Culpeper, Orange, Madison and Rappahannock); Winery tours (limitless), Shopping and golf.
Or maybe the plan is to come for Thanksgiving or Christmas and enjoy the simple life!
