  • Simply perfect

    "Thank you so much for the lovely stay in your beautiful and clean cabin! My boyfriend and I had such a peaceful time lounging on the deck and the dock, hiking, and swimming in the lake. The kitchen amenities provided all that we could need and more which made it easy to cook often. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway in a pristine spot with great views! Many thanks to the Fosters!"

  • very nice house for extended family gathering

    "We spent a week here for Christmas with our entire extended family (three families with little kids, a couple of single adults, and grandma and grandpa). The house was large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably! The upstairs master, main level master, and downstairs bedroom are each spacious enough to hold pack 'n' plays or inflatable beds for the kids and babies. There were enough chairs (including extra folding chairs) and tables for us to eat together, and the kitchen was reasonably well equipped. The main level's living area was roomy enough to gather in, and the downstairs living area made a great playroom for the kids. The gas fireplaces on both the main and lower levels were a toasty treat. The rental rate was quite reasonable, and the owners were very friendly and easy to work with. They helped make our stay for the holidays extra nice (they decorated the house, brought up the leaves to extend the table, and left holiday linens for us to use, for instance). The house is walking distance from the Black Bear Cafe and the Wintergreen Nature Center (which has information about hiking trails as well as some exhibits and a play-room for little kids). A few cons to be aware of: the house has a steep gravel driveway. Also, there's no internet access, and most of our smartphones didn't have any service in the house (Sprint had spotty service in some corners of the house, but with both AT&T and Verizon, we had to hike up to the street). That made planning activities, checking in with work, and communicating much more difficult while we were there. We brought some extra kitchen equipment with us (and wish we had brought a set of knives) so we could cook and bake while there. We found the central heating system particularly noisy (most noticeable at night). And the view from the house is limited, compared to other properties in the neighborhood. All in all, for the rate, it was a lovely house and we had a wonderful time there!"

  • Exceptional

    "The design and location of this house is very well-thought-out. It is the ideal place to take a proper vacation - one where you can read surrounded by stunning scenery, where you can exercise and explore an expansive property, take a relaxing swim or a soak in the jacuzzi tub, hop in the paddle boat for a little cruise around the pond...there are many options for things to do. There are two grills, one on the porch and one down by the pool, so you can grill all of your meals easily, depending on where you want to dine. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked.The house is approx. 20 miles away from a service station, which is outstanding. We really felt like after our stay here, we were totally able to recharge and recreate ourselves. Working with Jim to rent the house was smooth sailing. I mean, easy peasy lemon squeezy. No cell phone service, but wi-fi worked beautifully. I almost wish there wasn't wi-fi! Ha! We were able to bring our dogs, who had the absolute time of their lives. Our dogs were enthralled by the cows, and they fetched the ball out of the pond until they passed out from exhaustion. We didn't have to bring towels, sheets, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, etc. All of those things were provided and Essie was as sweet as pie. We always bring grubby towels for our dogs, so that we don't muddy-up other peoples' nice towels, so dog owners should bring those of course! The only "issue" I had was that I couldn't find the hair dryer that was noted in the listing. And the only other slight bummer was the the bikes weren't functional. It wasn't a big deal for us, because we did a lot of our traversing on foot and via the golf cart, so we felt like we didn't miss out on much at all. We didn't want to leave, and this is one of those places that my husband and I will absolutely be coming back to stay in again. It was just perfect for us. Relaxation paired with adventure, with excellent accommodations. Thank you Jim. You nailed it. - Annabelle & Steve"

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.
