Why Carla chose Shenandoah Valley

It offered us the chance to get away without having to travel far -- it's far enough way from the city but close enough if you need to go into the city!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Blue Hill is nestled in a rural country setting BUT it's close to Winchester and Middleburg and lots of activities or just choose to stay at Blue Hill and relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility surrounded by nature and we are pet friendly.

Blue Hill is also a great setting for receptions or weddings - please inquire about our wedding packages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have thoroughly enjoyed your house this week. We came for our Granddaughter/ nieces wedding and this was a perfect place to stay. We were relaxed and away from the frey of wedding stress. Our Bride and her new husband were able to come after the wedding and have a relaxing afternoon and decompose. Your property is beautiful and full of history. We loved the creaking of the wood floors and could appreciate the warm feel. Thank you for sharing this property with us . We are already talking about when we can come back again! Take care & God bless!

Plantation House Perfect for Wedding at Long Branch

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and had everything we could imagine. The rooms were nicely decorated and had all of the necessary linens. Backyard and patio were stocked with games, firewood for the fire pit and nicely kept. The hot tub was wonderful and was a nice treat morning and night. The house and the property was perfect for our family to gather while in Winchester for a wedding at Long Branch. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely place.

Very nice property with great location and access to things to do

  • 5 of 5

This owner has outdone herself in anticipating your every need! She even has dog leashes on the property in case you forget to bring one!

The property was so nice, the jacuzzi was fabulous and the rooms were so spacious that a large group of people didn't feel cramped.

The rooms were clean and the beds were already prepared with sheets when we arrived. I cannot say how much my family enjoyed the place

and the little towns that surround the property. We did some antiquing, some wine tasting and even went ziplining one day. We give it 5 starts!

The owner was prompt to get her maintainence guy out when we had a problem with the hot water. It was resolved very promptly!

A magical home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Blue Hill to receive out of town guests for our daughter's wedding. This home is so very peaceful, lending a feeling of slower, easier times. Everyone felt the calm & grace that this home exudes. Blue Hill is very well equipped with extra touches to ensure you have a comfortable at home experience. A special home, indeed.

Awesome Home and Time!

  • 5 of 5

There were just five of us in our small band of golfers. We thoroughly enjoyed Carla's home. It was spacious yet comfortable and cozy at the same time. She had so many great touches that made it feel just like we were at home. The area is quaint and very welcoming. We enjoyed lunch and fresh veggies from the Locke Store. We also enjoyed visiting Old Town Winchester. El Centro Mexican restaurant is amazing. The home is very close to the golf courses we played. We are planning a return trip with a larger group!

Gorgeous, comfortable home, centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I spent a week at Blue Hill and had a wonderful time. The house is so beautiful and well laid out. I grew up in an old house and it felt like coming home. It was terribly hot and humid the whole week, but with the central air conditioning we were never uncomfortable. We took day trips to the arboretum, grist mill, and Long Branch Historic house, all of which are literally five minutes from the house. My sister-in-law got riding lessons at a horse farm around the corner, and we went tubing down the Shenandoah at Watermelon park. The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing place in the country that isn't super remote.
