I grew up in upstate New York, working on my brother's hay farm during the summers. I've been in Virginia since 1989 and run an IT firm, a federal contractor.
Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2002
This house is not a typical cabin. It is a fully appointed house, a peaceful getaway on a working hay and horse farm. The trainers work on gentling wild mustangs for the Bureau of Land Managment. With miles of trails, you can hike, walk through the woods and enjoy a peaceful setting in the country.
Quiet, peaceful farm setting, woods and fields with trails for hiking, fenced back yard.
I was looking for a place close to Charlottesville UVA for football games and close to the Vineyards and Presidents homes. I found Pauls' house and was very surprised by the hospitality by the owner and his property managers. The cabin is very spacious and had all I needed to prepare our meals. The pastures with horses really sets this mood. Come here for a vacation if you are looking for a stress free location and plenty of time to relax and enjoy all that Charlottesville and Lake Anna have to offer. Close to Richmond International Airport fly in and rent a car.
The cabin and surrounding farm were beautiful, and the people very hospitable and friendly. The owner of the property, Paul, was very accommodating and helped get us in a day early on very short notice. Unfortunately, it was a death in the family that brought us there, but we will definitely be back under happier circumstances to better enjoy all that this rental has to offer.
My husband and I rented this cabin in December to visit Charlottesville and Lake Monticello. It's close enough to Charlottesville ( about 25 minutes) and several wineries that we visited. It's a wonderful cabin with all the amenities you could want, including a huge fenced in back year that my two dogs loved! We enjoyed the horses, goats, and donkeys that surround the pastures around the house. Everyone we met on the farm was friendly and polite, and provided us with lots of information about the animals and the workings of the farm. We regularly rent through VRBO, and this was one of our very favorite places. It was a fabulous weekend and I recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away to a unique setting.
We were in between houses and the turned out to be perfect for us as we needed a furnished location that allowed dogs - we have three.
The farm staff are terrific - very helpful and mindful of our presence while they went about the day to day running of the farm. And the exposure to the horses was quite an interesting experience for us
My wife and I have vacationed with our dogs for almost 30 years. It has always been a real challenge for us to find a suitable place that would allow us to bring our pets. Well !!! This place was the best we have ever rented in all those years. Not only was the backyard fenced, but there was even a gate to secure the large deck, which let us have great outdoor time with our dogs, and the 4 year old child who visited us.
The house is beautiful, and very clean. The kitchen is very well stocked, and has all the conveniences you could want. It is scenic, quiet, peaceful, and the perfect place to relax. The people who run the farm are very nice, and even invited us to come to watch one of their training sessions as they worked with one of their new mustangs. I have always been very nervous around most horses, but I could tell right away, that their trained horses were very gentle, and didn't hesitate to approach and pet them. Even my wife couldn't believe it, because she know how cautious I am near horses.
Here is the real amazing thing about this rental property. My wife and I now own a vacation rental of our own up in Maine. We have spent the last 8 years doing our best to make it the perfect place for us, and our guests to enjoy. We understand first hand just how difficult a task this is. Though we have been able to keep our cabin as clean, and well equipped as this cabin, this rental actually worked out better for us because of the fenced yard and secure deck than our own cabin is.
If you are planning a trip to Virginia this should be one of the places you should consider very seriously. Even if it isn't so close to where you want to spend your time, it might be worth a little daily drive time to stay at such a nice place.
We are very grateful to Paul (The Owner)who allowed us to stay at his wonderful home, and we hope to return some time very soon.
We spent a lovely long weekend at Anna Valley Farm. The cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed, and the owner Paul was very responsive through the whole process. It was fun being on the farm, watching the sun go down with horses and a donkey right outside the window. We used it as a base to explore Charlottesville, tour Monticello, and visit some local wineries. Highly recommended--we will definitely come back when we are in the area!
