Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
This is a luxurious cottage with pool about a 1.5 hour drive from Charlottesville on a 300 acre farm in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Perfect for a romantic weekend or family getaway.
The cottage consists of a huge window-filled kitchen/dining/living area, made with the finest materials. The hardwood floors are spectacular rustic oak. The kitchen has the latest appliances and red granite countertops. The living area has a gas fireplace with HDTV and DirecTV, and a comfortable queen-sized sofa bed.
The bedroom has a fireplace, big-screen TV and king-size bed with memory foam mattress.
The cottage sits alone in its own valley, and the farm has spectacular hills, meadows, and woods. It features soaring views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with over a mile of border with the beautiful George Washington National Forest.
Privacy and intimacy go along with the gorgeous landscape. You will be the only people on the farm. From the entire farm, no other houses are visible, despite the stunning views of 20 miles or more. Dozens of deer make their home on the farm and snack on the apple trees around the cottage. In summer there are cows munching away on the grass.
Recreational Equipment: The fishing pond (stocked with catfish, bass and perch) has a paddle boat. Fishing rods available. There is a golf cart and mountain bikes. There are kayaks for use on the nearby Cow Pasture River. The kayaks are a short 8' long, so they fit in most cars. Plus there are car racks available.
There's a pool right outside your door, via a rather whimsical bridge from the deck to a jumping platform. Do you dare?
To give you an idea of how large 300 acres is, it would take you about an hour to walk to the back of the farm. We gladly accept pets. The farm has always had pets, and they love it there.
The bathroom has marble floors, ceramic tiles, and a jetted tub with a view of the wilderness. The two-sided deck allows you to sip your morning coffee while looking out over the valley, watching the mist roll through.
Sleeping accommodations consist of the king-sized bed in the bedroom, a queen-sized sofa-bed, a self-inflating queen airbed, and three self-inflating twin airbeds (all 22' high), so you can mix and match as needed.
Wander the farm to your heart's delight. Swim to your hearts content. Fish in the pond. Check out a nearby river swimming hole right out of Tom Sawyer. Careen about on the mountain bikes or the golf cart. Go kayaking!

About Jim Rice
I grew up on the farm. My dad bought it from the Bright family, who homesteaded it about 150 years ago.

Beautiful relaxing getaway and dog-friendly!
My boyfriend and I wanted a last-minute getaway for a long-weekend and Jim was incredibly responsive and easy to book with. The house is perfect size for 2 people and fully-stocked with everything you need (from netflix to bbq grills). We enjoyed exploring the property on the golf cart and swimming in the pool (Even though it was a little cold still). Our dog has never run so much in her life and loved every minute of it as well. We are already talking about going back this summer! Highly recommend for a weekend getaway; no cell-service, but reliable wi-fi. Tip: The house is just over 3 hours from D.C.; I'd recommend stocking up all your grocery needs before getting out there.
Amazing property, well taken care of, clean.
Mr. Jim Rice had a great communication with us, he made sure to provide all the necessary information for the usage of the different devices around the house, and there were clear explanations as to where to find everything we needed. Mr Rice was so kind that he even let us stay past our check out time. This property is amazing!
What a jem. It was quiet, beautiful, and the cabin well appointed. We will be coming back .
I love this place. So much to do and so peaceful. We wanted a quiet getaway and got it. We will be coming back to use the pool and the pond. The cabin is great and so compfy . Miss it already.
We had a great time roaming the property and enjoying the peace and quiet!
Cozy & Lovely
Such an awesome place to stay! We brought all three of our dogs and stayed for a long fall weekend. The cabin is clean, comfortable and comes with all the bells and whistles! I didn't even need to pack 90% of what we brought because it was already there waiting for us. Pots, pans, grill, bedding, bath - you name it! Fantastic scenery. Great hiking. Highly recommend!
Beautiful setting, attractive, nicely appointed cottage, very helpful caretaker and lots to do in the property.
