Recent Central Virginia reviews

  • Feels like home!

    "How do you describe a perfect weekend retreat? If it is a spacious, warm home nestled back in the woods, atop a mountain with a striking views, THIS IS YOUR DESTINATION. Myself along with some old friends made this property our destination based on the size (we had 8 people) and the location. As such, we were all slightly skeptical because the price was fair, and generally when a rental says "sleeps 12" it really means sleeps 6 comfortably and everyone else is on a rickety old pull out couch. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE HERE. 12 people could easily have attended and all had a bed. The pictures sell this property short, the rooms and views are more than pictures can show. The kitchen is updated with many of the amenities you would want in your own home. At the start of the trip we were referring to this as the "rental property" by the end of the first night, it felt more like a home, built on a foundation of happiness that everyone who visits cannot help but feel. I would highly recommend this property to anyone with a larger group of people and still wants to have their own space away from the group common areas. 10 out of 10! Rent NOW!"

  • Perfect in Every Way!

    "This home was our first ever try at a vacation rental, and it was just wonderful. The pictures don't capture the charm of this lovely home, which is equipped with everything you could ever need and more. We loved sitting in the backyard enjoying our morning coffee, and evenings were spent on the front porch where we got to meet the terrific neighbours. Susie is so pleasant and thoughtful, we just couldn't have asked for more. I'd happily recommend this home to anyone wishing to stay in Richmond. We'll be back for sure! Thanks, Susie, for making our vacation worry-free!"

  • Amazing!!

    "My husband and I brought our two dogs for a short getaway to John and Cathy's condo. It was perfect! Before the trip even started I felt relax. John was flexible and easy to work with. The condo was clean, comfortable and close to everything! We had a great time and can't wait to visit again!! Thank you John and Cathy!!"

  • Relaxing vacation

    "Our family really enjoyed our stay at Henry's place. It was clean, new furniture, very comfy mattresses and great deck space. The only downside was tight quarters in the kitchen but he mentioned a know need and desire to improve that. We would definitely rent again!!"

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.

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.
