Recent Central Virginia property reviews

  • Wonderful relaxing vacation home!

    "This was our 2nd summer vacationing at this lovely spacious home. Our 3 grown kids along with their families (3 grands and 2 dogs) enjoyed this well kept home and especially the sandy beach. The upper deck had plenty of seating for lunches and evening relaxing. The owners were eager to accommodate our requests for baby gates, crib and high hair. They even dropped off bags of ice when the ice machine malfunctioned. I always bring my own pancake griddle and electric frying pan but found everything else we needed in the kitchen. I recommend this home for large family vacations!"

  • Wonderful fall weekend!

    "This place was absolutely extraordinary! The facilities were clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. Lake access and view were excellent. Extremely convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and recreational facilities, but still very private. Weather was a little cool to take full advantage of the canoe, cayak, and decks, but we hope to remedy that during a future (summer?) visit. Bill was congenial, gracious, and helpful in all aspects of our stay."

  • Teresa and Larry (Queensbury, N.Y.

    "From a tranquill relaxed cup of coffee on the dock first thing in the morning to a romantic glass of wine late into the peaceful evening, our wonderful stay at your beautiful lake house was more than we could possibly had hoped for. The surrounding area beckons for many attactions, activities and restaurants but we found it very hard to leave such an awesome private vacation getaway. We enjoyed our days relaxing on the sun filled dock, canoeing your beautiful lake and spending many lazy hours laying on the tubes in your very quite and relaxing cove. We found your lake home more beautiful than the pictures on your website. We definetely felt the personal love and attention that you have touched in every room of your home. We will definetly find ourselves back at this perfect vacation getaway."

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.
