The main house at Clover Hill is divided into two rentals . The Main house "The James " and the In - Law apartment " The Rosalie" both rentals are combined in this listing for up to 10. The farm was acquired by my great Uncle James & Aunt Rosalie downsizing in 1950. I continue the family tradition of keeping up the old farm buildings in hopes to pass the peaceful farm and its 115 acres of rolling hay fields and horse pastures onto another generation. In 2015 I renovated both houses with guest rental and family gatherings in mind. The James the 4 bedroom, 2 bath main portion can sleep 8, Its wide open living dining area, sun porch and outside patios makes it suitable for a couples retreat or family get together. The Rosalie is a one bedroom one bath self sufficient apartment on two levels giving you privacy and freedom from the rest of the house. The large west facing deck is a favorite spot for sunset hour. The Rosalie's separate rear drive retains the privacy and detachment of both spaces.The nightly rate for this listing is for 8 ( 6 in the James and 2 in the Rosalie ) additional guests are $20 per night / per guest over 8. Well behaved pets are allowed but must be mentioned at booking. They may not be left alone unsupervised, unless crated and never longer than 2 hours. Pets must be in a flea preventative program.
5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

About Ellen Pons
I grew up in Richmond with backyard horses that summered in Goochland on Clover hlll, then owned by my Great Uncle James . Now the 3rd generation steward of this special property I am working to pass it on to my children. I live and work with my husband and extended family in Maryland on our commercial thoroughbred breeding farm. I also am a freelance photographer. I travel to the farm frequently to lend a hand w/ upkeep and relax in a setting that is peaceful and rejuvenating. I am happy to share this special place with like minded travelers that appreciate the beauty of the country.

Peaceful getaway. Very much enjoyed the property.
Hurricane Michael put a damper on our first night but once at the property the following day, we enjoyed our stay. Small housekeeping items that had not been addressed such as, pile of towels left behind from either previous stay or housecleaning and garbage bags left outside. Property owner was accommodating and responsive.
Peaceful, hospitable, well-appointed farm house in Virginia horse country.
Clover Hill Farm provided the perfect getaway for the reunion of a group of college girlfriends. The rolling hills and serenity of the property can be enjoyed with the comfortable outdoor areas and seating. We loved seeing the horses being tended to in the distance. Both houses (we rented both the James and the Rosalie) are eclectically, yet tastefully decorated with meaningful family memorabilia and different forms/styles of art. All bathrooms are spacious, clean and rustic, yet modernized; the bedrooms contained comfortable beds with wonderfully selected bedding throughout. The farm is remote enough that it might be a good idea to pick up any snacks/food/last-minute necessities (shampoo/conditioner) in Short Pump (Wegman’s, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Mall, Target), about 20 minutes away, before settling in. The kitchen is well-equipped and the dining room, living room and enclosed sun porch provide lots of comfortable gathering spaces. Ellen was accommodating, warm, helpful, and always responded quickly to questions. She has lovingly maintained and preserved this family keepsake. Our group would definitely return to Clover Hill if we meet in Richmond again.
Home in the farmland
This spot is a great one if you are traveling to an event near here. Like a wedding.. we did just that and had rooms for 8 comfortably.. they had everything ready to go and were very accommodating by letting us check in early and even stay late.. thanks again for being a great host
It was the perfect place for our family to hang out while in the area for a family wedding.
Home and property is beautiful, quiet, and serene. House is well appointed for a comfortable stay.
Thanks Sharon it is always a pleasure to host appreciative guests. Thanks for taking great care of my "happy place" Sincerely Ellen P.
Perfect family get together venue.
Awesome Weekend Getaway!
We had a fantastic weekend getaway at Clover Hill Farm - if only it could have been longer! The house had all the charm of an old farmhouse with updated amenities to make everyone comfortable. And what a location! We had no idea Goochland County would be so beautiful and such a short drive to Richmond. We enjoyed amazing early morning sunrises and evenings around the fire pit and all the time spent in between, relaxing and catching up with extended family. The farm was just beautiful and our friendly horse neighbors were a big hit with young and old alike.
Ellen was a great host and very responsive through the whole process...thanks for an unforgettable weekend for our whole family. Can't wait to come back again!
