The Space We are off grid- the house is powered 100% by the sun!

Being off grid means the house is broom-swept, not vacuumed, and there is no air conditioning. If you are expecting Red Door Spa, this is not the place for you.

The Space

We are off grid- the house is powered 100% by the sun! Our energy efficient home works like any other house (yes we have plumbing, hot water, YES the light switches work, we even have high speed internet, y'all!). Being off grid means the house is broom-swept, not vacuumed, and there is no air conditioning. If you are expecting Red Door Spa, this is not the place for you. If you have fond memories of summer camp in the south, y'all come on in, climb into the hammock, and sip a glass of sweet tea. Explore history and fun in Appomattox, Farmville, Charlotte Court House while learning about living off grid, yet with modern technology! We are surrounded with state parks- Holliday Lake, High Bridge Trail, James River State Park... I provide a long list of fun things to do! The house has three bedrooms- double beds on the end bedrooms, then the middle bedroom has a bunk bed, a trundle, and twin. The bedrooms open into a great room with lots of space- cocktail seating, a kitchen island, and a dining table that seats 8.

Interaction with Guests

I love sharing the beauty, history, and character of this area with people. Ask me, I will try to help!

The Neighborhood

Welcome to a modern life, off grid! We are surrounded by farms and many of our community are Amish. An Amish friend has a "store" where you can purchase bread, jams, cookies, and more on Fridays & Saturdays, and there is also an Amish Produce Auction on Tuesdays and Fridays. Vineyards are within easy reach in Appomattox, Brookneal... We can also arrange horseback riding lessons for you! There is a wonderful trainer here.

Getting Around

Cars are necessary, unless you bring yer buggy.

Place's rules
Have fun, be respectful. Please note this is a family house in the *country* on a *farm.* This house is our beloved home and we have put a lot of love and care into creating it. When you're not here this is where we live. I have a manual which includes safety rules, and lots of cool stuff, but to note: no fires (too much dry pasture that would go up in seconds / and since we're on the highest point in the county, too much wind), no smoking, NO dogs. Anything broken, replace, please. Children: The house is not "child proof" but once discussing your child I will do what I can to put things up from a toddler's reach, etc. for you, but you will need to monitor and be responsible for them. Do know we have a small pond that is currently not fenced in, and our fences are all electric. Having said that I have had many friends bring toddlers here and hang out with me who had a great time! The middle bedroom has a bunk bed, a twin, and a trundle so we usually toss all the kids in there when having friends out for the weekend. A Frank Note To People Who Think They're Going To Sneak In Their Dog: Welcome to the country! We have chickens on this property who will be here during your stay. I *promise you* your dog you just snuck in will *obsess* on those chickens (cue the incessant barking, whining, crying, digging, and generally driving you insane on your "relaxing" getaway weekend while also damaging our house) until the split second you're *finally* taking a break, enjoying the view, sipping on a glass of wine... At *that* moment I assure you they will escape to break in to the coop and kill our hens. Replacing a laying hen is $50+ each, and I will make you dispose of what your dog did yourself, because why should I. You will have to walk each carcass over 2 miles away through the woods with a shovel, dig a hole, and dispose of it so the coyotes don't come in close. Once your dog has killed my chickens you will, horrified, amongst a yard strewn with bloody bodies and feathers, weekend ruined, run after beloved FiFi sobbing and crying that your sweet gentle dog could even kill another creature. Since FiFi now knows they're now in trouble they will run from you into the pasture. See that cute donkey and those horses? They kill dogs. Actually, that is why that cute fluffy donkey is here- her job is to kill coyotes/canines. Yep, that tiny, adorable donkey helps protect the 1,200 pound horses. Isn't nature crazy? This herd will see your dog as a predator and kill it. Here's how they kill dogs and coyotes: They first grab your dog (or coyote) by the neck, then shake it to death, then toss it up into the air and stomp it until pureed. (We also have coyote packs who will be happy to lure your pet to their death too, if you like.) I assure you - the dog kennel is much less expensive and less stressful than bringing a dog here. Thank you for understanding. Otherwise, HAVE FUN! I usually spend my nights lying on my back outdoors star gazing.

About Copeland
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
