Recent Central Virginia reviews

  • Had a great time!

    "The house was perfect for our two families - all kids were under 9yo. It's located on the steepest part of Eagle's Swoop (a blue run) -- but the younger kids were able to slide down the hill and then ski the rest of the way down. The place was very cozy and well equipped. It didn't hurt that we had great snow while we were here!! We would stay here again!!!"

  • Reunion

    "We enjoyed our stay at the manor house. My family with our two sons (3 and 5) met my mother, her partner, and my grandmother aged 93. We enjoyed the property. We fished in the pond (catching and cooking a fish) and visited the horses. We explored Luray Caverns, Montpelier, and wineries. My mother brought her golden doodle and I bought our toy poodle mix. They enjoyed the property, as well as playing with a dog from the cottage rental. We were concerned about the high number of King Charles spaniels in the hot barn which we understood were owned by a lady who rented the barn. She was not friendly whenever we were walking past the dog barn to the horse barn or if we tried to have a conversation with her. There were maintenance issues with the house, but they were corrected in a timely manner. There was a small leak from master bathroom down dining room wall, but Mrs. Brown was aware of it. Mrs. Brown was very helpful in general."

  • Worth it!

    "We stayed in this home for a week with another family, so 9 people (4 adults/5 kids) total. The location was great, the view was nice. There was plenty of space for the adults to hang out on the main floor and the kids on the lower level. Nice to have bathrooms with each bedroom. The kitchen, dining and living room space were great. The furniture was all very comfortable. Being close to several of the hiking trails was very convenient. There were a few things to do on the mountain, but if you get cabin fever, you are close (45mins) to Charlottesville and can easily take a day trip to the downtown shopping mall, which is fun. It was great to have a washer and dryer in the home too. There were a few negatives, which didn't take away from our vacation, but I felt they should be mentioned. The stove & oven were older, so it took a while longer to cook and the water pressure in the home wasn't adequate for 5 bathrooms. The home was also showing some wear and tear. There were a few things that were broken in the home-closet doors, pantry doors and the main floor shower stall was off the track. It was also great to be able to bring our dog with us on vacation!"

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

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.
