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.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bird Grove while visiting our son for Family Weekend at Longwood. It was comfortable, clean and so beautiful! Mornings on the porches drinking coffee and listening to the birds were so relaxing! We loved visiting the horses. We brought a couple poles and got some fishing in! My husband caught a bass his first cast!! The owners came and welcomed us and said hello. They were very friendly and accommodating. The house is amazing. Definitely can feel the history that the house holds as you walk from room to room. It is lovely and so well kept. We would definitely stay here again!!

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!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful, historic, serene

  • 4 of 5

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.
