Thank You

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great couple of days away from the world. I was a little skeptical booking the house due to the price compared to the size. I wasn't disappointed, the house was a fantastic value. The house is old and rustic where it needs to be and current and modern where it needs to be. There were only four of us so room wasn't an issue at all. Carla was fantastic to deal with and went out of her way to provide anything we needed. Don't let the size of the house versus the price fool you. This is a fantastic Home Away find!!

Lovely House Near Winchester

  • 5 of 5

I was here with a group of women for a long-weekend hiking-and-wineries bachelorette trip, and we had a fantastic time. The house is large, spacious, and grand, furnished with pretty antiques to look at and sturdy furniture to actually use :) It's one of the best vrbo houses I've been to. Everyone got her own bed, and since there are three awesome full bathrooms upstairs, we weren't fighting for shower time! The upstairs did get very warm since the air conditioning didn't seem to be working up there, but admittedly we never called the owner about it, instead just opening the windows to catch the breeze. The kitchen is well-stocked (we made good use of the waffle-iron!), and there's a Costco and a Food Lion just a 15-minute drive away. The hot tub was huge! The wifi wasn't good enough for streaming music, unfortunately, so bring your own playlists. Wineries are a 20-30 minute drive away (I'd recommend Fox Meadows and Arterra in particular). For nice scenery, birds, and walking, check out the Virginia State Arboretum two minutes up rt 50. We also especially enjoyed sitting on the house's wrap-around porch with a nice glass of wine and snacks. And having sheets and towels included is a huge bonus, since we thus didn't have to take room in our luggage for our own. Thank you to the owners for such a wonderful stay!

A perfect place to gather friends and family

  • 5 of 5

This charming colonial was delightful. It is older, but spacious, with updates in many places throughout the home. There were gathering spots and hide-away spots. A large, functional kitchen with everything we needed. A large dining room where we spent most of our time together, although we could have easily used the huge living room area with the large flat screen television. We also enjoyed the deck and the fire pit. There is also a hot tub, although we never had time for it.

Most in our group had traveled quite a distance to come to a local canine competition, so we were delighted to be able to relax together at this lovely home, and cook or own meals, instead of meeting at a hotel or restaurant. We were grateful for the small fenced area where our dog could be safe, and for use of the laundry towards the end of the week.

We had a delightful time, and made many memories, which will be re-lived for years to come. And Blue Hill was the center of it all. If we return to this area of the country, we will return to Blue Hill! Thank you!!

Couldn't be Better

  • 5 of 5

We stay at Blue Hill twice a year and there could not be a better "home away from home"

The setting is breathtaking and the surrounding area is steeped in history and charm. Close enough to Winchester to be able to "run out and pick something up" but far enough away to give you the feeling of stepping back in time. The house itself has the most beautiful floors, an entrance that can best be described as "grand" with an elaborately crafted staircase, high ceilings, with large windows to bring in tons of light. Nothing has been forgotten for those lucky enough to stay at Blue Hill. Even our dogs feel at home with the fenced in yard and room to explore and have fun.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay at Blue Hill. It has an amazing peacefulness about it. The house is spacious and absolutely beautiful . Carla was excellent to work with and Mark - the maintenance man, was right there when he had a slight issue with the hot water. The hot tub was relaxing.

We were here for our son's wedding and hosted the rehearsal dinner at Blue Hill, everyone who attend remarked about what a wonderful place this was.

I truly cannot say enough about this place, our whole family felt so honored to able to stay at Blue Hill. We highly recommend it!

Comfortable, clean and fun.

  • 5 of 5

Great space - indoor and out. We enjoyed the hot tub, outdoor dining on the deck and fire pit on the patio. Dining room and living room are very large with lots of interesting antiques and decorations. There was also a bright and cheery breakfast room. Bedrooms were comfortable. The entire house was very clean. The owner was very responsive - there was a problem with the internet and she had a new router installed within 24 hours. Plenty of parking.
