vacation rental description

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.

activities and attractions in Charlottesville Virginia

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.

Something for Everyone!

Review submitted: September 12, 2013   Date of arrival: August 19, 2013

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

Lovely stress-free stay

Review submitted: December 7, 2012   Date of arrival: September 27, 2012

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

Review submitted: November 28, 2012   Date of arrival: October 12, 2012

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.

Recommended for: families with young children, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway
