Recent Central Virginia reviews

  • Wonderful family reunion and birthday celebration!

    "This house is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. From all of the beautifully decorated inside spaces to the back deck, we enjoyed every part of the house. The pictures accurately show the view from the back deck where we spent hours visiting and getting caught up with family members. Even with the unusually warm weather for February we had members of our party out skiing while others spoiled themselves with massages at Wintergarden. The fireplace area is wonderful for hanging out and the very dry wood stored in the garage was appreciated greatly! As far as communicating with the owner, Steve, you cannot ask for a more gracious person from which to rent. He answered all of my questions and was very willing to work with us to make our stay the best it could be. I would definitely recommend this home to others!!"

  • Perfect Romantic Retreat!

    "My husband and I just got home from our stay in the Ridge cabin. It was an absolutely perfect getaway to celebrate our anniversary! The owners have truly thought out every detail. We loved hearing the creek as we sat on the porch in the rocking chairs. The hammock was so relaxing. There was a wonderful jacuzzi as well! We cannot say enough great things about what a wonderful experience we had at Chesley Creek Farms."

  • Perfect for a couples get away

    "We had a wonderful time on a much needed weekend getaway. The condo is perfect and has everything you need for a relaxing time away from home. It was very clean, cozy and inviting. The patio is wonderful and the sunset is breathtaking. The only thing about the patio is it gets the direct sun in the afternoon and it is quite hot to sit and enjoy the view. We enjoyed it in spite of it. Also, just FYI, there are a lot of steps going down to the pool. There is an alternate route, you can leave the property and turn right at the main road, go a short way and turn right again. This will take you to the boat slip and you can park and walk to the pool from that parking lot. The owners of this place truly thought of everything. It's perfect and we will definitely try and go again. I could live there to be honest."

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.

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.
