About Richard & Janet Wills
We are Dick & Janet Wills, a fun & loving couple who have fully renovated an 1850's farmhouse overlooking Tobacco Row Mountain in Amherst county, VA. We love to hike and explore the AT and Blue Ridge parkway, both only 20 minutes away. We have begun a native plant garden and a wildflower meadow. Janet loves 'her birds' as she sits and drinks her coffee or tea at the kitchen window. Dick is a fern fanatic and has plant many species in the garden. Since we are still both working in Richmond, VA and are hardly there , we began sharing Oak Lawn in 2011. We are pleased to offer our second home for others to enjoy should your travel destination include Lynchburg or Central VA.

Family Thanksgiving Reunion
This was an absolutely perfect place for our family to gather for our annual Thanksgiving gathering. The home is beautifully restored and it provided everything we could possibly need to make this a memorable time for us all!
Thank you Judy for your review. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family.
Oak Lawn was a marvelous!!! We were so pleased. I left wondering when I might be able to come back!
Oak Lawn is so stylish yet comfortable & warm & historically charming. We loved it the moment we stepped into the home. We will be booking Oak Lawn again in the future. It is a perfect home to rent if you are in town for a wedding at Winridge Manor (which is right across the street within easy walking distance). We only have great things to stay about our recent visit.
Enjoyed our stay!
Very comfortable and clean home. Hopefully we will get to stay here again.
Beautiful cozy home
This house was a great home away from home. My family stayed here for my college graduation, and it was a great place to stay. We had enough room for everyone and the hosts were very accommodating and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.
Very comfortable. Love the history.
This is a great property!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home has so much character and beautiful, old details. Yet, there is every modern amenity. It is very charming and comfortable.
Only 20 minutes away, west on Elon Road (VA-130), is the Blue Ridge Parkway @ Otter Creek (MP 60). Another 5 minutes west from there and you arrive at the James River @ Snowden, VA. Here you can enjoy a pleasurably and easy hike by going south across the river on the Appalachian Trail (AT) and along the river, following the AT up Matt's Creek. Or, going north on the AT, try the strenuous 4 mile hike to Fuller Rocks @ 2,472 ft. for spectacular views of the James River Valley and the city of Lynchburg . There is also good trout fishing (stocked in season) as you ascend on the AT on a little mountain stream, Rocky Row Run. You will also find parking & a public boat ramp right where this stream enters the James.
