Recent Central Virginia reviews

  • Pictures do not do this cabin justice!

    "Wow! We made our travel plans very last minute and were happy to find a place to stay for just one night. THe owners have made many updates on the exterior that these pictures do not give the home justice. When you walk in you see all the attention to detail with a variety of antiques and hardwood floors. It is like you stepped back into the 1800's but still have the amenities of a modern cabin. It is very isolated , just you and the stream. The back deck gives a great view of the river below. Very relaxing. We have rented many homes and this one falls into the "way more than expected" for the price."

  • Perfect Weekend Getaway

    "We had a group of 12 (3 families) who were coming down to the area for a VA football game. When we arrived at the house, everything was so beautiful and perfect that everyone joked about not wanting to leave for the house for the football game the next day. There was more than enough space for everyone. Everything was in perfect condition. We cooked out on the grill and the wives actually enjoyed cooking because the kitchen was so nice and well-stocked. The only complaint anyone might have is the kids, who couldn't figure out how to get the Playstation on the tv downstairs. But they quickly forgot about it and it wasn't enough an issue to bother anyone about. Again, everyone is still talking about what a wonderful weekend it was and how beautiful the house was. thanks so much Jane. It was a pleasure dealing with you and I know we'll be back!"

  • Great Vacation!

    "My family had a great time! The cottage is very well kept, very clean, and has plenty of space. The setting is very pretty and secluded, and the ride to Charlottesville is not bad at all."

  • Fall weekend

    "Just returned from a weekend in this wonderful home. We were a group of couples on a kid free getaway but would certainly return for family time. The house is very well maintained and decorated. The kitchen is well equipped for all the cooking you might like to do. Very comfortable beds and so great to have 4 and a half baths! Took advantage of visiting wineries and breweries in the area, golf and the Wintergreen spa. Highly recommend."

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.
