Come relax in our Circa 1823 Farmhouse situated on 75 acres in Amelia County. House has two bedrooms upstairs, one with queen bed and the other bedroom has a double and two twins. There is a detached studio that could possibly sleep two, but all bathrooms are in the main house. Sit out in the yard, overlooking our large pond and enjoy the wildlife. Full use of shared kitchen available, but we are not a B&B. Great for girlfriend get-a-ways and retreats. Visit with the owners in their stunning log home located near the main house.***PLEASE SEE VIDEO LINK AT BOTTOM OF PAGE****
Keywords: This historic house, with Civil War ties, is situated on 75 acres in Amelia County Virginia. Much of the house is still original and shows the craftsmanship used to build it almost 200 years ago. Enjoy relaxing on the lawn or just go for walks around the farm.

About the owner: This was my weekend house until I built my Dream Log Home up on the hill.
Why the Owner Chose Farmville: I have always loved the outdoors and wanted a farm for my horses and had not planned on renting to anyone. However, after moving into our log home, this beautiful house and historic property is too special to not be enjoyed by others.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: Quiet! End of a road property. So relaxing. Off the beaten path. This farm was formerly owned by the cartoonist, Jeff McNalley, of the cartoon 'Shoe' and he used the summer kitchen/studio to draw his cartoons.
