Recent Central Virginia property reviews

  • Great stay

    "As promised, we were not disappointed. The cottage was very comfortable and the setting tranquil. We enjoyed walking, bird-watching, sitting on the porch, and visiting with our host and his pets. Fresh air, spring water, and splendid views added to the experience. We highly recommend Fairhill Farm and Carrie's Cottage."

  • Cozy, off-the-beaten track retreat

    "My girlfriend and I stayed at the Squirrel's Nest last weekend and it was a great homebase for our activities in Central VA. The pictures don't do the quality of the design and the cleanliness of the place justice. It's a great place for 2, although it might be a little claustrophobic if you have 4 or more in your party. We loved the loft bedroom and the family room area. Thanks for helping us have a great weekend!"

  • Excellent place to stay

    "We found the condo was excellent. It was well decorated as well as well kept. We had a wonderful time just sitting on the deck. It's far enough away from the hustle and bustle but yet close enough to stores and restaurants. I was even nice to have the owner to call and see if everything was to our liking. Thanks again for a wonderful place to stay."

  • Annual skiing & wine tasting vacation

    "This is the 3rd year we have stayed here. We meet our grown children and a few of their friends for skiing and wine tasting. The Condo has all the amenities needed for our stay. It's the perfect place for skiing, relaxing, viewing the scenery, enjoying a glass of wine. We plan to return next year."

Central Virginia Travel Tips

Central Virginia, the Birthplace of America

Choosing Central Virginia condos as bases for vacations puts visitors in a region that is known as the birthplace of America. With the first permanent settlement in Jamesburg in 1607 through its role in the Revolution and Civil War, it is an area of living history. Its major cities include Richmond, Charlottesville and Lynchburg. To get here, visitors fly to Richmond International Airport. You could also travel via the excellent interstate highways leading to Central Virginia, with I-64, I-95, I-295 and I-85 all providing access to the region, along with many state highways.

The weather of Virginia is often described as "Goldilocks Climate," being not too hot and not too cold. It is a humid, subtropical area with frosty winters and sometimes "sticky" during the height of summer.

Cities Full of History With the Mountains on the Doorstep

Richmond is home to history, arts, antiques, and culture. It is considered to be the birthplace of Black Capitalism with many sites honoring the role of African Americans in shaping the nation. Explore the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site, the Black History Museum and the L. Douglas Wilder Library.

Charlottesville is a charming, centrally located city in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains; it is a great base for exploring the mountains. It has a wide range of museums, galleries and parks. History-lovers can visit Monticello, home to one of the nation’s best loved founders, Thomas Jefferson. It is also an ideal place for golf-lovers with several championship courses nearby. Set within an area with rivers and lakes, it is perfect for exploring, sailing, swimming and fishing. There are also sports such as kayaking, canoeing and tubing here. It’s a great mixture of adventure and relaxation.

Also in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains is Lynchburg, the city of Seven Hills. Central Virginia lodging is close to a variety of historic sites.

Trips around this region include the Civil War Trails that follow the route of the campaigns and battlefields through Richmond, Petersburg and Appomattox. Here, visitors should stop at the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar, the Pamplin Historic Park and National Museum of the Civil War Soldier, and Appomattox Court House and National Historic Park.

Dining is a real pleasure to be undertaken in Central Virginia, with wonderful regional dishes such as country ham with grits to specialty ethnic restaurants. Perhaps a family buffet in a local diner, a country kitchen serving fried chicken, or a great place for BBQ fits your personal tastes.
