St. Stephens Church Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Travelers Rest is listed in the King & Queen book of historical homes. There are two houses. The main house was build in 1860. The original house, which is now the guest house was build in 1750. This historical home will set you back in time, with its old woodwork and lavish you with all the modern comforts.

Travelers Rests name comes from it being a place George Washington would stop and rest when he was traveling between Washington and Williamsburg. Travelers Rest Farm promises georgeous sunrises and relaxing sunsets. Take a chair and enjoy the views that made us fall in love with this place.

You can enjoy this peaceful place by yourself, with family and/or friends. If you desire to hide out this is your place. If you would like to have a little activity riding, yoga, get a massage or take floral design classes from a German master florist.

This 1760 house is a beautiful renovated with two bedrooms upstairs. One bedroom has a king size bed, the other bedroom has two twin size beds, sharing the bathroom. Downstairs is a full kitchen, another bathroom, laundry room and living room. Additional guest can be easily accommodated in this historical home.

Serene beauty

  • 5 of 5

This unique historic stop was well worth it. Our hostess was there when needed without being intrusive. The historic home is filled with amenities that leave you needing nothing else. Our daughter's enjoyed horse back riding and spending the day at Horse camp. They are still talking about the fun they had and can't wait to return next year.

Amazing place in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Travellers Rest Farm. Agnes and Charlotte were wonderful and my kids took a real shine to them. They also adored the horses and dogs, and enjoyed helping in the stables. The house was very cosy and had everything you need, including toys, kitchen utensils, essential food items, laundry facilities, DVDs, wifi, outdoor seating, toilettery samples etc. It was a 45 minute drive from Richmond, which has a lot to offer, or you could stay at the farm and enjoy the peace! We would love to come back sometime!

Great stay. We were comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

A family of six stayed here very comfortably. Owners were helpful. We used the location as a base for day travel. It was great to have room, the kids could go outside and stretch. We enjoyed getting out of the cities and relaxing in a rural setting at night. We used the full kitchen to cook breakfast and supper. It saved us quite a bit of money. We would go back and use the same property again.

Beautiful location, charming/clean farm house, and super friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Travelers Rest farm host. The historical farm house has plenty of charm, but you're still connected withi Wifi if needed. The farm itself is beautiful, and the Agnes, the host was responsive leading up to the visit, and super friendly in-person. We'll definitely be returning for some horseback riding.

What a great getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Travelers Rest Farm. Agnes and her family were very gracious yet extended space to us. We really enjoyed the farm setting and also the historic house. My son, who is stationed at Ft. Lee, VA was glad to be able to get away from the base and chill for awhile. I even took the kayak and puttered around the pond a little while.

We would definitely come and stay here again in the future.
