  • Wonderful stay at Thoroughfare Farm

    "We had a truly wonderful stay at Thoroughfare Farm. It is a spectacular sight, replete with all the amenities one could ask for. The property is exquisitely maintained, and the house has so many wonderful details and is styled with taste and class. I cannot recommend it highly enough, a perfect weekend getaway for a group of friends or family."

  • Great weekend at the lake! Very comfortable and welcoming, upscale accomodations!

    "My wife and I were at the lake for her birthday weekend and needed a place to stay. We found this condo and contacted Cathy and Steve. They were terrific to deal with. They gave us a lot of helpful information and recommendations regarding where to go and what to do during our weekend stay at the lake. The condo was wonderful! Very tastefully decorated with with very nice personal and hand-made touches (in particular we liked the oar that had been converted to a row of hooks for hanging clothes, towels, etc). The bed was a brand new Sleep Number -- what more can I say about that . . . VERY comfortable. We look forward to staying at Steve and Cathy's condo on our next visit to the lake!"

  • GREAT DEAL & A GREAT HOUSE!!

    "Overall the house is great! Inviting & laid back flow to the house. Rented the house for my wife and myself with another couple and a friend of theirs. Great news is all were very comfy in the house and all had a great time, even though the weather was in the mid 50's for skiing/boarding on Saturday. A BLAST WAS HAD BY ALL! We feel we could have had another couple or two and it would have been even more fun at this great rental. GREAT PLACE, WOULD RENT AGAIN IN A SNAP!!! Owner/Operator very helpful and provided great customer service. She didn't have to work with us on the rate but did and made us feel great. I would most definitely recommend this place to family and friends looking for a nice Wintergreen getaway. We enjoyed the fire pit out back, the resort (SLOPES) and dined @ The Edge one night, all were delightful."

  • Great Summer Wintergreen Getaway

    "We spent July 3rd and July 4th at this Wintergreen condo. We were very impressed with how well stocked the kitchen pantry was. Construction (new decks) was being done on the building next to us, but due to the Holiday no work was being done. The mountain views were incredible, and we were very comfortable hanging out in the living room when we weren't exploring Wintergreen. We also really enjoyed the cooler temperatures at Wintergreen - it was a good 10 degrees cooler up on the mountain."

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.

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.
