About Peter and Jane

Mark grew up in North Dakota and retired from the military 3 years ago and Kelley grew up in Virginia Beach and teaches riding lessons on the farm.Together they have a blended family 4 girls,1 boy and 3 amazing grandchildren ! We both like to stay busy and are 'HANDS ON' people. Mark enjoys building projects and the bigger the better. The majority of all of the renovations and building or moving(ask about the gazebo move) projects we do together. We both enjoy meeting new people and showing them our little piece of heaven.

Why Peter and Jane chose Virginia Beach

Kelley grew up just down the lane from this farm and rode horses as a child at Princess Anne Farms , which is our neighboring farm! This unique property is centrally located to the beach and all it has to offer as well as the wonderful farm life and to think it is all in the middle of Virginia Beach !! Our children growing up on this farm enjoying the horses , running in the fields of buttercups and just being free spirits and now our grandchildren to carry on this wonderful tradition , how could we not share this with other families?

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This farm was a hidden gem under all the debris , over grown brush and neglected house . My grandparents found this farm and suggested we buy it , perfect investment , perfect place to raise a family and perfect location , just down the lane from them !!! This farm is a labor of love , pride , joy and peace for our entire family . We hope that our new vacationing family members enjoy our farm as well as we do!!!

Amazing HomeAway Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. From the second we arrived my group and I were treated like family. I can't say enough about this Farm Paradise. The home is meticulous. No detail is spared, beautifully decorated with comfortable beds, upgradaded wifi and all the comforts of home. On arrival we were treated to a tour of the farm which was great. They have several horses, chickens and a couple of pigs. Then we were brought into the main house and we were taught how to use the tech in the house. The house is fully wired with Sonos speakers in and out, every room has a TV and there is enough seating for your whole party. The outdoor of the house has three decks and a Gazebo. It was perfect for grilling and entertaining our group. They also have a "Man Cave" which I can only describe as Awesome!!! Big Screen TV with your choice of gaming system, pool table , Foosball table, card table and Dart board. This room included theatre seats that fold all the way back. Our kids didn't want to leave this room. But they did to ride the provided bikes or to play basketball. All this said the BEST part of our stay were our Host's Peter and Jane and their family. It felt as though we were staying with friends who couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely be back!!!

Diamond in the Rough

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly a hidden treasure in VA Beach. At first I was reluctant to take my friends to a horse farm for vacation but after speaking with Jane she reassured me that we would have a great time, and she was absolutely right. The horses, the scenery, the relaxing atmosphere truly take you away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and once you've felt like you've taken it all realize it is just the beginning. There is so much to see and do. From fishing to basketball, to bike riding. You name it, Peter and Jane have thought of it. I especially enjoyed the fire pit at night with the lights and the music.

The house is truly special which is fitting because Jane and Peter are truly special people. They give you as much space as you want but they are always available for whatever you need. They are genuine, humble, loving people and are excellent hosts. I met them on a Friday and by Sunday I was already inviting them over for breakfast. That just speaks to the kind of people they are. God has truly blessed them with something special and I look forward to booking this place again in the near future.

Perfect Vacation at Virginia Beach

  • 5 of 5

Peter & Jane were most gracious hosts & accommodated our every need. The farm is beautiful, private & very safe for our extended family. Immaculately clean, fully equipped house for dining in, cooking out or just sharing family time & very close to the beaches. They furnished us with a golf cart to tour the grounds which was an added bonus. The outdoor decks & gazebo was a perfect setting for the children to play & our family photo . We couldn't have asked for a better vacation for the family gathering. Thank you Peter & Jane

Peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

As a vacation spot to "chill out" it was perfect , yet close to all we needed.

Loved the horses and met our new best friend "Boca" the outdoor cat who was so loveable ( yet we're not big cat lovers)......we will all miss her.

Jane & Peter couldn't have been better hosts, just wanted us to have everything perfect and it certainly was. The beach was close and we enjoyed going there as well. House is very nice and comfortable and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting the Va Beach area , it is very charming.

Amazing property with awesome hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent thee nights in mid-July to reunite with family we have not seen in a very long time and celebrate the birthdays of our 4 and 6 year old. We chose the property because many of our family members grew up raising and riding horses but have not owned any in quite some time. The close proximity to Virginia Beach was a bonus as the family that flew in live in eastern Washington and we were able to spend an afternoon enjoying a beautiful beach. We almost didn't go to the beach though because we were all so in love with the house and surrounding property that we didn't want to leave. After arriving we were happy to find that on top of a fully appointed kitchen, there is a Farm Fresh five minutes down the road. We were able to cook all of our meals and didn't find ourselves needing anything that wasn't already provided. On the second day we hosted a group of friends and their little ones for a combined birthday party for our children. This property is a phenomenal spot to entertain. There is a huge amount of outdoor seating spread over three decks and a gravel spot with a giant fire kettle as well as an enclosed gazebo that turned out to be great for keeping the food away from the flies. The amount of effort that has been put into the property really shows in the attention to detail paid to accommodating guests in the best way possible. Everywhere we looked we were surprised to find another subtle little touch that made the experience memorable. Our hosts, Jane and Peter, were just awesome. They were very friendly and personable and always on hand if we needed anything but kept enough distance that it was easy to forget that we were not hanging out in our own home. The grounds, horses, chickens, and petting zoo down the road were more than enough to keep our kids busy and allowed the adults to relax and catch up with relatives we haven't seen in years. The back deck comes with its very own barn cat who is sweet as can be, loves people, and even tolerated the kids. One suggestion I would make to anyone who stays here is to bring two pairs of flip flops or sandals. Shoes are not allowed inside and we found ourselves going out both the front and back doors quite frequently to enjoy the outdoors. We all wished we had a second pair to park at each entrance.

A piece of country heaven minutes from the oceanfront

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fun, relaxing and beautiful family gathering thanks to the wonderful home, location, all of the extra amenities, but most of all the friendliness, helpfulness and care of Jane, Pedro and family. We loved sitting on the deck watching the horses, hearing the rosters, feeding the pigs, eating the fresh chicken eggs, and learning about the chicken "facts of life". We visited Sandbridge beach, the Va Beach Aquarium and Va. Beach - just minutes away. We rode bikes around the farm and visited the nearby petting zoo.What a treasure. We will be back. Thanks for sharing your home!
