Recent Central Virginia property reviews

  • Incredibly beautiful!

    "This house was amazing. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great family or friend get together! We had several adults and babies - and everyone fit just fine! The house and views are really even more beautiful than the pictures. Clean up was a breeze - the expectations were so reasonable that we didn't have to waste precious family time doing things like laundry, etc. (The only thing that was slightly inconvenient was that there was only 1 cutting board and we were preparing food for a lot of people. Otherwise, the house was perfectly stocked with all the kitchen gear, linens, towels, etc, you could want!) Thank you for a wonderful experience!!"

  • Truly Paradise

    "This cabin truly was "Hunters/Hikers Paradise". I had a surprise birthday party for my wife with family and friends. Thanks for playing it so cool, Audrey! My wife had no idea it was for her surprise birthday party. Everyone loved this place and had a great time. This log cabin is beautiful and luxurious. I would recommend this cabin to anyone."

  • Absolutely Perfect

    "We had a disaster experience with the Mark Addy Inn down the road, and this place became our wedding savior. From the first phone call Barbara was friendly and accommodating. We rented all 3 houses for the weekend for our entire bridal party, and everyone was treated like royalty. The property is gorgeous and spacious, the rooms are stately and elegant yet somehow homey, and a short walk gets you to a pool and lake. Barbara even came by with carrots to let my little nieces and nephews feed the horses. Cannot recommend this place higher, it helped make one of the best weekends of my life!"

  • Great Location

    "We loved being able to have our boat right in front of our condo. The new gas grills at the pool site were a plus. It was our first time to SML and it was impressive landscape! Having a map of the lake is a must, if you have or rent a boat. Even though it rained the 90% of the time, we still went out on the boat and enjoyed the sights. The condo had a great floorplan for studio size. The bed was very comfortable, the water pressure was highly impressive. Be prepared to walk about 100 steps from the dock area to the condo, but not having anyone above you is well worth the extra workout. The steps are needed for the mountain shoreline. We do plan to come back when it's not raining so much. :0)"

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.

Great Shopping, Great Food and Great Fun

The region around Central Virginia vacation rentals is a shopper’s paradise with a huge variety of shopping excursions available. Whether you are looking for antiques, crafts or even a present for a beloved pet, it is all here. The farmers' markets are full of wonderfully fresh, locally grown produce which is great to take back to your Central Virginia lodging for some fabulous meals.

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. There is also five-star dining with unique menus and fabulous service in elegant surroundings.

The region is home to a great selection of days trips to zoos and theme parks, including the famous Busch Gardens, Williamsburg and Kings Dominion. Of special interest for children may be the Haunted Monster Museum and Dinosaur Kingdom and the indoor water park at Great Wolf Lodge. For animal-lovers, a trip to Infinity Acres Alpaca Farm is a wonderful opportunity to get up close with these beautiful, gentle animals.
