Pond House at Wolf Trap Farm

Pond House at Wolf Trap Farm

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 17, 2014
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 7 Sleeps

Great for Families. This cheerful cottage overlooks a gorgeous 4 acre pond full of bass and bream. There is a wonderful screened back deck where you can sit for hours just feeling the breeze, listening to the birds and watching the pond life. Depending on the time of year, there are hummingbirds, geese, frogs (they can be deafening), turtles, butterflies, red-wing blackbirds, eagles, herons, woodpeckers, groundhogs, and always there are fish. We provide the gear; you provide the skill to catch them.

The house itself could not be more pleasant. It wins rave reviews from all our guests. It is on a farm, but no one describes it as "rustic". The kitchen is fully equipped, and the furnishings were professionally selected by our interior designer. It is quite charming, but still pet-friendly. However, the best feature, which you will comprehend only when you see it, is the POND.

Guestbook comments from the manager

To celebrate M_______'s 60th birthday, we chose the Pond House. It was so relaxing and peaceful. The guys enjoyed fishing, while the ladies rode bikes and interacted with the horses. Seeing the baby horse was a highlight! The wineries were awesome, especially Barboursville! This is exactly what we needed!

Something for Everyone!

  • 5 of 5
My daughters and I recently enjoyed two idyllic days on the farm. We stayed in the Pond House, and
everything about our stay was perfect. My youngest daughter enjoyed fishing, exploring the farm and the woods in the golf cart, visiting the horses in the fields and the barn, smores on the fire pit at night (Keith even thoughtfully left firewood for our use) and playing outdoors! My city-slicker teenager enjoyed resting and reading in the clean, comfortable and well equipped house (she even had Wi-Fi!), relaxing under the stars in the hot tub and even swinging away on the two rope swings. The farm brought me back to my childhood - it was so great to be outdoors, and I haven't seen that many butterflies in years! It was the best of both worlds - the relaxing atmosphere of the farm, with all of the modern conveniences and amenities very close by. Keith's restaurant recommendations were great - we had an incredible lunch at the nearby French restaurant and a wonderful Italian dinner just up the street.
My kids would not leave until I promised that we would come back again - that was an easy promise
to make! Thank you, Keith, for an incredibly relaxing mini-vacation. We hope to be able to come back
soon!

Lovely stress-free stay

  • 5 of 5
Really lovely stay with excellent, responsive hosts. Nice and clean, well-maintained accommodation. They had no problem with us staying just the one night. Lovely relaxing location, farm animals, etc (though not much to do on site, just in case that's what you're expecting). Would happily stay again. :)

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Pond House was the perfect relaxed atmosphere for a weekend with my mother and sister, close enough to Charlottesville to do some excellent wine tasting, far enough away from town to enjoy being out of the loop a bit. The working horse farm is a lovely setting, and the folks working/living there are incredibly nice. We also rented out the entire Manor House the first weekend in June 2012 for UVA Reunion Weekend. Again, an amazing experience. I am not usually a huge B&B fan, but the option of renting out an entire establishment, be it the Pond House for a smallish group or the Manor House, with minimal interference/EXCELLENT customer service from both the hostess Tina and the owner Keith was perfect. Will definitely go back - totally reasonable for the location, plenty of space for kids to run around , also a perfect place to go WITHOUT kiddos.

Beautiful property close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time the week that we stayed at the Pond House. It was centrally located to most historical places, so that was a major plus. The house is very comfortable, with beautiful views. My favorite thing was the quiet---this is the one thing that I have missed about living in the country. The house had a full kitchen which was great, since we cooked in most nights. Why go out with views like this? We did eat in Gordonsville one night at the little French restaurant and that was amazing!
We went to Montpelier for the wine festival, which was alot of fun. Also went back to Monticello, also went to most of the wineries---favorite was Barboursville! Also did alot of fun antiquing.
My only complaint is that the bed was not the most comfortable---especially for longer stays.

Just like home - but better!

  • 5 of 5
We found the Pond House online, and it looked like a pretty good place for us to stay - my husband and myself, our two girls, and my mother-in-law. We arrived just as the sun was setting on a warm March day - and immediately fell in love with the place! My two girls (ages and 8 and 11), found the tree swing at the bed and breakfast up the hill right away. We watched the horses, including a mother and her foal, and captured some absolutely beautiful photographs early in the morning from across the pond. We hiked, planned to use the hot tub (but decided it was too chilly), and watched brilliant stars from the deck each night. We were happily surprised to find that the fridge was fully-stocked with breakfast for our three-day stay! We brought some of our own food for lunches; used the full-size oven, dishwasher, and washer and dryer; and enjoyed Tina's laid-back warmth. The house was a perfect size for the five of us - just enough room for everyone, and big windows through which to watch the horses. We visited all three nearby Presidents' houses: Monticello, Montpelier and Ash Lawn-Highland. Montpelier had the best tour, in our opinion. Also loved the restaurant in the town of Orange that a docent at one of the houses recommended: Elmwood at Sparks. The Silk Mill Grille in same town was good too. Charlottesville was fun as well - lots of good food, and a great downtown walking mall.

Owner's Response: Oh Rebecca, it is never too chilly for the hot tub! You will have to come back and add that to your adventure at the farm.

Thanksgiving Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving at the farm. Everything was available for us to enjoy a
very special holiday at the Pond House. Everyone was so comfortable and when it our time was up we didnt want to leave. The sunsets over the farm were the the most beautifuul we have seen in a long time. My children loved spending time with the resident horses as well as messing around by the pond. Our dog enjoyed the long walks around the farm and the rolling hills to romp on.
Wolftrap is truly a very special place and we hope to return as soon as we can. We thank you for sharing this slice of heaven with us.

Owner's Response: It is remarkable how many of our guests say the farm makes them think of what they would like to find in heaven. As an owner, sometimes it seems like bragging when I try to describe the place. The landscapes are just hard to adequately describe. Only when you see it can you truly get the full effect.

Location

Activity and Interests

The Pond House is in the center of a 584 acre horse and cattle farm 30 minutes from Charlottesville. At the farm, guests hike the miles of woodland trails, enjoy the ponds, watch wildlife, horses and cattle, and generally explore all the acreage.

Off the farm, we are 30 minutes from Monticello, 15 minutes from Montpelier (Madison's restored home), 15 minutes from Barboursville Winery, Horton Cellars and Keswick Vineyard, and 4 miles from Gordonsville, with its excellent restaurants and shops.

Horseback riding is offered 1/2 mile away at Oakland Heights farm. Rafting and tubing are available an hour away. Lots of great antique and other specialty shopping in Charlottesville, Culpeper, Orange and the small towns.

Excellent, excellent scenic drives along Route 231 through Keswick and Somerset. Absolutely eye-popping views of gorgeous farms like ours.

Civil war museums and battlefields, including Wilderness.

The restaurants in the area are outstanding.

But the activity you will enjoy the most is lounging on the back deck, staring at the Pond.
