Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Purple Haze farm house (circa 1908) was totally renovated in 2006. We are a 200 acre working farm with cattle and crops, fronting the South River, at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can see the house from overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The view from the house will cure high blood pressure in a minute.

Because it is an old farm house with additions (total of around 3100 sq ft} the floor plan is unique. Downstairs includes all the public rooms plus a full bath. Upstairs includes three bedrooms (one queen and two doubles), a bunk room with a single and bunks which sleeps 3, and two full baths. One of the baths is off a central hall, the other is off one of the double bed bedroom. The upstairs rooms are on three levels, often requiring a step or two between rooms and the hall. If you are a person easily disoriented when you wake up at night, you may want to stay in the room with the ensuite bath with no steps. Also, it has a metal roof, so you will hear rain and wind storms if one arises.

The address is 118 Hall School Rd, Waynesboro, VA 22980, should you wish to map it.

While only a few miles from the interstate, we are in a lovely rural setting. With 3/4 mile frontage on the South River, we have lovely paths for hiking and gentle water for canoeing (no rapids) and fishing, bass and trout. This area is particularly nice for biking, with many rural roads, and excellent mountain biking trails nearby in the national forest. With 24 wineries within 25 miles,you can enjoy a grand tour or just visit a couple only 10 minutes away. Lake Sherando is 15 minutes away for swimming. We also have pool passes at two nearby hotels so you can swim indoors or out.

In the Fall the colors of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley are amazing. There is no extra charge for them.

You'll have a full modern kitchen, or many restaurants nearby for dining. The den features a card table and a large HD TV with DVD. In the barn there is foosball and ping pong. We have an outside basketball court, and lots of area for soccer.

Behind the house there is a patio with a wonderful view of the property and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The patio includes a firepit and a hottub.

If you are so inclined, you can visit our chickens and three miniture donkeys, Fiona,Fergie and baby Olive. You can win their hearts with an apple or carrot, or by brushing their coats.

We are less than 30 minutes from Charlottesville (Monticello and University of Virginia), Wintergreen(golf and skiing) and Staunton(Frontier museum and Shakespeare Theater). 45 minutes from Harrisonburg, Masanutten with it's waterpark and skiing, Lexington and the Safari zoo. About 2 hours from Richmond, Williamsburg, Jamestown and 3 hours from Washington DC and Virginia Beach.

Dulles airport is 2.5 hours and Richmond airport is about 90 minutes.

Come settle in on our farm for a week, take in all the fun activities in the area, and then relax with the comforts and room of home.

11/2015 update: the donkeys are still here, but olive is no longer a baby, although she is smaller. They are fat (Deana spoils them), but still love carrot treats.

The barn will be available in 2018 on a limited basis for events and weddings. Call for information. We host weekly Young Life meetings and Young Life groups are welcome all the time. We are a great spot for a square dance/hoodown. Email or call Brad for details or questions. 540 294 1633

We have learned the hard way that many parents do not adequately supervise young children on the farm, which is dangerous. Children under 12 are not allowed to stay here.

About Brad Tipler

Brad, Deana, Dalton, Liam and a host of animals live on the farm. Deana was born and raised in the area. Brad moved here 25 years ago to work, fell in love with the area and Deana. Neither is leaving.

We bought the farm in 2004, and moved into the farm house a few years later. In 2009 we built a new home on the farm, and thus the farm house became available for VRBO.

Brad Tipler purchased this house in 2004

Why Brad Tipler chose Waynesboro

Lots of reasons, including, the view, the view, the view........

What makes this house unique

We live in a rural peaceful area, but the necessities (and luxuries ) of modern life are just 10 minutes away.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Rented the farmhouse for my family traveling into the area for my daughter's wedding. We are all farm/country people and absolutely loved getting to stay at this gem of a farm house. They made everything SO EASY for our stay and as mother of the bride I was very grateful. It was wonderful!

Picture Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a fabulous weekend staying at the farmhouse. We toured the wineries near by. It took less than 20 minutes to get to Veritas and Pollack. The farmhouse is just so adorable and much bigger in person. It was stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed the fire pit two out of three nights. We are already planning another trip!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family came up for our son's wedding and spent the week at the house. This house was so nice and the property was beautiful! Brad and Deanna were the perfect hosts! They were attentive without being invasive. Everything was ready for us, clean and a welcome basket of fruit, chocolate and water was awaiting our arrival! We took full advantage of all the amenities and could not have been more pleased. We had our twin grandsons (2 1/2 years old) our daughter, son in law and another daughter stay with us. Plenty of room. We also had our son's friends over several nights for time around the fire pit and fun in the barn! Thank you Brad and Deanna for providing a memorable family vacation for our family!
