Property description

Welcome to Virginia's hottest destination getaway—Robbins Nest Farm. Situated on the majestic James River in historic Central Virginia, Robbins Nest is both a private retreat and horse farm. Located in the small town of Wingina, VA, "The Farm", as it is affectionately called, would be considered anything but 'in the scene' by today's standards, which is exactly what we think makes it so special.

Adventure: Here lies the heart of your experience at Robbin's Nest. Enjoy trail riding, fishing, canoeing, innertubing, camping, cross-country running and much more. You name it, we have access to it right here at Robbin's Nest Farm. Our location is a great distance to Central Virginia attractions: excellent wineries, Monticello, the Blue Ridge Parkway, University of Virginia, Crabtree Falls and many other interesting sites.

Relaxation: Discover a slower lifestyle at Robbin's Nest. Warm up to panoramic views of the gorgeous Blue Ridge skyline as you cozy into custom rocking chairs. Share a glass of your favorite wine with friends and family who have come to unwind.

Relax in your own private residence and discover the joys of secluded luxury in the Museum. The 1920's brick cottage has been beautifully renovated to include a gourmet kitchen, wood burning fireplace, screened front porch, table for 10+, and relaxing Jacuzzi tub. At Robbin's Nest, experience a truly unique lodging destination. Spend your days enveloped in a mix of fine taste and distinct southern country charm.
Also on property, is another house to accommodate large parties. Perfect place for reunions or larger gatherings. We also have 6 trailer hook-ups with water and electricity.

About: "By the time I was thirty-five years old, I'd been all over the world. I did the resorts, the spas, the fancy dinners, and to be honest, I lost touch. I wanted an adventure, something real," espouses Dawn Lee, the owner of Robbins Nest Farm. Dawn is a wonderful Mother of three daughters and as they have grown the Farm has become her fourth child. Growing up in Charlottesville, she wanted to get back to the Central Virginia area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Museum is not only gorgeous by any standard, it has a warm, welcoming feeling that makes it a home to any visitor or guest. It offers a great place to bond with friends, or spend time alone. The Cabin at RNF is rustic a Montana feeling. It is very comfortable and inviting.
