Wineries, Ski Lodges, 4 Star Restaurants, Hiking or catching up on that long awaited best seller: the Farm is the place to be.


Looking for the perfect family vacation? Want to getaway from the hustle and bustle: girls' weekend, special anniversary? Come and enjoy wineries, 4 Star restaurants, historic sites, hiking, tubing on a river or simply reading a good book.

The farm sits a half mile off the road and encompassses 154 acres, but with the nearby farms and forests and you are surrounded by more thatn 600 hundred acres. You may see turkeys, deer, horses galloping behind the hounds, an awesome view of the Milky Way or an extraordinary sunrise.

Enjoy the excitment of nearby attractions, then return to a bit of paradise at the end of the day.

Family Adventure!: Camp out, roast marshmallows, explore the fields and woods, identify constellations stay on the deck and spot deer or turkey. It will be unforgettable. The greatest challenge will be getting everyone back in the car when it is time to leave.

Depending on the season, you can sled, hike, swim, fish, collect leaves or nuts, or a build a dam in the creek.

Nearby, you can hike Old Rag, swim in a mountain pool, ski at Wintergreen or Massanutten, or explore the Luray Caverns.

Perhaps an old fashioned Christmas holiday would be just the ticket.

Come and stay for a weekend or a month.

Enjoy the peaceful rhythm of the rural life. Read, walk, watch, sit, write, paint or just listen; like a miracle the stress will melt away.

It will be difficult to leave and we will gladly schedule your return.

Love History, Wineries and Fine Dining?: Use the cottage as your base and within a 50 mile drive in any direction the history of America will unfold.

Visit the Presidential homes of Jefferson, Monroe, and Madison, area Civil War Battlefields-Brandy Station, Wilderness, Fredericksburg- or quaint villages from another time- Little Washington, Sperryville or historic Culpeper.

How about museums? You will find them in Culpeper, Orange and Fredericksburg.

Wineries and 4 star restaurants abound in Culpeper, Madison, Rapahhannock and Orange Counties.

You will need at least two full days just to scratch the surface on these excursions. We can assist with links for times, directions and contact info.

We also offer the smaller Aunt Judy's House; please contact the owner for more info.

Great house and amazing location

  • 5 of 5

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.

History Vacation

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great for our family

  • 4 of 5

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!

Thanksgiving 2013

  • 4 of 5

We booked the property to spend Thanksgiving with our family who live in the nearby areas. We loved being all together in the house spending time with each other. The property is beautiful and we took family pictures using the old barns and surrounding areas as backdrops. I wish I had know that there had been pets in the property as my son has allergies. I think it is also helpful to know that the internet connection is not strong enough to steam or download anything, Zann did tells us that when she was showing us around the house. Zann was very helpful during our stay. The directions were great and we drove right to the property. It is a great rural setting if you are looking for a rustic get away.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We spent nearly three weeks at this property with 2 of our sons and my mom. Everyday was filled with adventure and fun, whether we traveled to see the sights or stayed on the farm and enjoyed the peace and beauty it offers. We had been there once before and knew then that six days was not long enough to enjoy all the farm and the area have to offer.

We spent July 4th at Monticello in Charlottesville, at the naturalization ceremony...which I highly recommend. We had a very long but fun-filled day in DC and made a few short road trips around to see various Civil War battlefields, which are of particular interest to our family as we have several ancestors who fought. We all enjoyed the pool and watching the cows. There was even the addition of a new calf while we were there. The view after reaching the top of the mountain is breathtaking and well worth the walk!

Zann is a gracious host, incredibly knowledgeable about local battles and the area in general, and a whiz with genealogy! She even spent time teaching my son how to clean and gut a fish which endeared her to him for life :)

We will most definitely return AGAIN...there's so much more to see and do!
