About Chris Freese

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.

Chris Freese purchased this farmhouse in 1986

What makes this farmhouse unique

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.

The Historic Bird Grove Farm was an amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful and secluded!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to the area from Florida. This is a truly gorgeous place, the views, horses, wildlife and of course the house made for a unique visit to the area. The house is filled with objects and reminders of country life in the past. Hosts are very friendly and accommodating. I loved the landscaping, the charming kitchen, the layout of the house, and how the place just invites you to explore.

What an enchanted place.

  • 5 of 5

We were able to stay only one night during our trip. For those of you not familiar with the area, accomodations are scarce and the 'Econo lodge' is one of your few choices----DO NOT DO IT! This is a chance of a lifetime to stay in such a grand home, on such a beautiful property, with the best hosts ever. There is no other spot to enjoy staying in for us in this area. You will be thankful you didn't take the cracker box hotel route. Just gorgeous.
