I've always had a love for horses and historic properties. In 1984 I decided to combine the two with the purchase this property. Then 25 years later built my dream home on this property, but still love to have guest to enjoy the historic farm house.

The history of this property and space for my horses
Quiet! End of a road property. So relaxing. Off the beaten path. This farm was formerly owned by the cartoonist, Jeff McNalley, of the cartoon 'Shoe' and he used the summer kitchen/studio to draw his cartoons.
What a wonderful experience! When we arrived, we were warmly greeted - and the house was perfect. It's clear that this family cares for the property and it made for an amazing calming vacation. Land was perfect for long walks, porch was perfect for rocking and couldn't ask for nicer hosts!
We were attending a wedding in nearby Powhatan Co. and loved this wonderful home -spacious for the four adults and 3 children in our group. The setting is so peaceful and the kids loved feeding the horses. The kitchen was well equipped - it was easy to prepare meals. Can't say enough wonderful things about this amazing vacation rental!
This historic home is at the end of a dirt road at the far side of Jetersville, VA -- very quiet and bucolic. We stayed here for parents weekend at Hampden-Sydney College which is about 30+/- minutes away. The house has everything you'd need, especially the kitchen where I did a little baking. The only problem for us is that there are horses on the property and my husband is very allergic! I thought they'd be a little further away from the house but they are basically in the "front yard". Other than the horse allergy, we had a lovely weekend.
My family and I stayed at the farm over Easter weekend to spend time together and experience something different.
On arrival, the house and landscape was even more beautiful than expected! The house was full of historical character. Every window had an amazing view of the farm with the owners four horses in the background. We had fun reading about the farm's history and exploring the home. The host was very helpful and gave us plenty of privacy. The beds were extremely comfortable.
The farm is only twenty minutes away from the city of Farmville and the local colleges. There are quite a few good restaurants to choose from. Farmville also has an entrance to the High Bridge Trail State Park. We enjoyed hiking the trails and walking the historical High Bridge.
We had a great time and plan on visiting again. I would recommend this vacation farm home to families who are looking to experience history and enjoy the outdoors.
It was a pleasure to stay somewhere rich with history. It is a beautiful property with so many original architectural details. I could almost picture the belle of the ball walking down the main hall stairs in her hoop skirts!
Yes there are only two bedrooms, but they are VERY large, and each had its own bathroom. Oh, and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen had all the crockery, glassware, and utensils one needed.
Ruth was very easy to communicate with, and sent excellent directions.
Stayed here while visiting colleges and enjoying the local area. Owners very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. House was as advertised. Beautiful place to stay, enjoyed relaxing on the farm and seeing the surrounding area.
Farm atmosphere, bird watching, fishing, near Lee's Retreat, Saylor's Creek Battlefield, Farmville is approximately 20 minutes away and has shopping, antique shopping, Longwood University and Hampton Sydney College.
