This trip was unbelievable. You will rent from Danny, a country gentleman who grew up in the house and currently lives up the road and runs the farm/ winery. It is a working farm that grows apples, grapes and peaches that they use in their wine. They also have beef cattle. Danny has a son (Shannon) who runs the farm and a grandson who works on the farm. You will also meet his wife Nancy. They were all friendly and delightful. The pet friendly house is over a hundred years old with bronze plaques on the rooms explaining who live there. The furnishing is from the 1940's. It has everything you need (full kitchen, clothes washer and dryer, even supplies). It has 5 bedrooms and has 6 queen beds, 4 bunk beds and a nursery with crib. Up the dirt road is the barn with pigs, rabbits, sheep, chickens, donkeys, lamas, goats and other animals. Eggs are plentiful for breakfast. Horses are often in the yard (you can feed them but not ride). There is a pond with great largemouth bass fishing and catfish (caught many using rubber worms)! There is plenty to do in 7 days there including D-day memorial, Poplar forrest, tubing/kayaking the james river. Hiking the peaks of otter and Appotomax courthouse. The only con is the amount of bugs, there were many as we didnt notice a window was open. (No mosquitoes and no ticks during our trip). If you are squeemish about bugs and spiders than this is not for you! This is a great visit for city slickers who need a rest or a family getaway. Children will absolutely love the dozens of bunnys and you may take them home if you like for free!
