The SpaceChoose any or all of our three modern bedrooms in our farmhouse on a working pastured livestock farm, about 20 minutes from downtown Charlottesville.
*PLEASE NOTE* Price is $70 per room. If you want one room, say 2 people when booking. If you want two rooms, say 4 people ($70x2 = $140). If you want three rooms, say 6 people ($210).
We have two listings for our home. If you are seeking a secluded getaway or a gathering place for a large group, please check out our "entire home" listing. This is our shared space listing. It is less expensive because you will share the house with us, the farm owners, and a couple farmhands who live downstairs with their own entrance. However, we are not like a hostel. Even if you only book one room, you will never share the house with another group of guests.
All three bedrooms share one bathroom with a small shower. Another 1/2 bath is available on the first floor. We hope to renovate the bathroom soon, but in the meantime it is a bright, functional space to get clean. We offer organic shampoo and Turkish towels to make the experience as luxurious as we can.
Guests can cook in our kitchen and help themselves to complimentary coffee, tea, and eggs from our farm. Our living room is large and comfortable, with an antique Steinway piano that has been in our family for decades. There are several places to dine - on bar stools in the kitchen, al fresco on the screened-in porch, or at our giant handmade dining table that seats 12 - perfect for a dinner party if you are traveling with a large group. Views of our garden, woods, and fields surround you. We have meat available for purchase as well as seasonal vegetables and herbs, all grown right here. We enjoy a country lifestyle, but have fast Wi-Fi so you don't have to leave the world behind if you don't want to. There is ample space for parking. Guest AccessGuests are welcome to relax on our porches, take a picnic and blanket out into the field, swing in the hammock under our oak trees, or snuggle up on our enormous, handmade couch. Please keep in mind that this is a working farm, so we have electric fences and cow paddies aplenty. All the animals we raise are rotated to new ground frequently, meaning there may be a lot to see or just a little. You are welcome to take a guided tour with us, time permitting, in exchange for purchasing $50 or more of our farm products. If it is feasible for you to wander around and observe the animals on your own, we will let you know where to go. Interaction with GuestsWe like to be here to greet guests and give you the lay of the land. Reminder: this is our shared space listing, so we will be coming and going as normal during your stay. You are welcome to keep to yourself, or if you're the social sort, feel free to share a drink or a meal with us when our day is done. Our work days often start before sunrise or extend into the evening. We are incredibly busy from April - November but do our best to clock out at a reasonable hour when guests are here. The NeighborhoodWe are right in the middle of Virginia wine country, so if you are here to make a trip out of visiting wineries, you've come to the right place. King Family, Stinson, Glass House, White Hall, Mountfair, Pollak, and Grace Estates Vineyards are all within 10 miles of us. Or if you're in town for a wedding (there are many venues nearby), this is the perfect spot. Bridal parties or groomsmen are welcome too - photographers will love our setting for photographs. If you're here for a UVA graduation or an alumni event, we are a quick 20 minute drive to Grounds. We can easily accommodate your whole family for the big day. Getting AroundAsk us if you're interested in pick-up or drop-off at the airport or Amtrak station.
We're located northwest of Charlottesville in farm and wine country. We live on a gravel road about halfway between Free Union and White Hall. If you arrive at night, please be aware our road is dark. You are not lost, you are just in the country, and it is perfectly safe here. Sometimes the road is bumpy, dusty, or muddy - but that's rural living and part of why we love it here. There is no public transportation in our immediate area. Other Things to NoteWe have 2 friendly dogs, so please keep that in mind you have extreme allergies. They are not allowed upstairs so the guest rooms are impeccably clean.
Despite our best efforts, the occasional ladybug or stink bug is just a part of life in the country. We do what we can to keep these critters in check, but don't be surprised if they make an appearance.
Smoking outside only.
Gay friendly! All kind folks are welcome here.
