Since the days of Thomas Jefferson the Dabney Carr house at Rosneath has offered Virginians and their guests just about the perfect place to greet the four seasons. Today, a newly remodeled kitchen and the latest entertainment gear enhance the experience. Rosneath is a great place to stay indoors with friends and family on a crisp winter night, walk in the meadows on a cool spring morning, sip a drink on the porch as the summer sun sets, or take in the hardwood trees’ fall fashion show.
The house rests in 120 acres of meadow and woodland, less than 25 miles from the Wintergreen Resort, 18 minutes from UVA and Monticello, 20 minutes from the foot of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive and a few miles from the historic, enchanting village of Batesville. It’s minutes from the Pippin Hill winery and within a half hour to the Trump Vineyards. With all that nearby, guests often say they would prefer to remain on the property and breathe pure mountain air, drink clear fresh water from the land’s private spring and enjoy dazzling sunsets and a star filled night sky.
The kitchen is newly remodeled and fully equipped. There is a dining room, media room/parlor and living room. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a private bathroom and an adjacent office that can be used as a bedroom or nursery. Down the hall there are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and the other with two twin beds.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The house met all of our needs and more. We especially enjoyed the warm greeting we received from Bud, the Rosneath Farm resident dog, what a sweetie! The landscape and views were magnificent and the location was very convenient for exploring some local area attractions.

Amazing stay at Rosneath
Amazing stay at Rosneath
We had an amazing time during our visit. Even though it was technically spring break, we found ourselves arriving at Rosneath just as snow had started to fall. We woke up the next morning to 6 inches of snow! Unprepared for the weather, we reached out to Misty/Dan, who live on property, and they let us borrow their sleds and we spent most of the day sledding, making snowmen and having snowball fights. It was beautiful! Misty/Dan were very conscientious and helpful with all the questions we had - including that we move our cars the first night for fear that a tree limb may fall due to the snow's weight. The house itself was just lovely. Very clean, spacious and well taken care of. The kitchen had every item you needed for making any meal and the wireless access and TV kept ourselves entertained when we were exhausted from tredding through the snow! Bud, Misty/Dan's dog, was just wonderful. He was eager to play with the kids and we adopted him as part of the family right away. I still have visions of my daughter sitting with him on the lawn saying a long, heartfelt goodbye. The location was perfect for feeling like you were really getting away from it all, but still close to the University, wineries and other activities. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and plan to return!

Parents 50th Anniversary
Parents 50th Anniversary
From the moment I reserved Rosneath for the out of town guests coming into Charlottesville to celebrate my parents 50th Anniversary, I knew this would be a weekend to remember. The property and the owners went far beyond my expectations. The home was warm and inviting and served as the perfect gathering point for family to recognize my parents 50 years of love and dedication to family, good food and appreciation of life. The kitchen is perfectly set up for all you would need to entertain a group. The property offers great outdoor space and plenty of room to venture off for an adventurous hike. The hikes are filled with spectacular views and plenty of mosaic quartz to admire along the way. Our family is already talking about what next big event we could have to gather at Rosneath. The property is only 14 miles from the Boar's Head Inn where we hosted a luncheon for 19 guests on Saturday, which by the way, is a fabulous deal and will certainly impress the most picky amongst your party. If you are looking for a rental home with the real home feeling, then I highly recommend Rosneath at Winter Garden.

The house is wonderfully kept and made for a relaxing, beautiful weekend. We came for a girls' vineyard weekend. There was obviously great care put into all of the little details in the house.... It could actually sleep 9 if you needed to accommodate a party if that size including a pullout twin upstairs and a pullout full downstairs. We will certainly be back!

Fantastic all around - we had the most fabulous time! Have already emailed the group to demand they look at their calendars so I can go ahead and reserve a week in the spring. Thank you so much again, it was the most amazing week - I'm not sure who misses the house more, myself or Charlie (he can't understand why he is back on a leash and why Bud isn't outside waiting for him).

We visited with our 14 month old daughter and her Grandparents visiting from the UK. It is a beautiful property in a wonderful setting and warm and practical for a family break. We would definitely recommend Rosneath to others.

About the owner: The house has been in our family for over 60 years. We were a military family and posted all over the states. Coming back to Rosneath was, for us, a chance to recharge and be surrounded by beauty and nature (our other residence was often surrounded by barb wire and bombers). Now that our parents are gone we thought it would be wonderful for others to be able to escape from the stress of their working lives as we have,
Why the Owner Chose Charlottesville:
Many generations of our family were raised nearby in Ivy and other parts of Albermarle County. Our grandfather knew his son-in-law and his daughter would be raising children at military postings and wanted an anchor for his family, http://youtu.be/DpziAVMBcxY
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
It is secluded and restful and yet close to wonderful amenities and a thriving cultural experience surrounding the University of Virginia.
