Recent Central Virginia reviews

  • Cute, quite townhome in serene setting!

    "Our stay here was fabulous! Eleanor was wonderful in working with us, and answering any questions we may have had. She was always accessible by phone and left very detailed information for us. It was nice having the guest passes, and the location of the townhouse couldn't be better. It was centrally located to just about everything. We had other family staying at the Overlook condos which were just a short walk away. In my opinion, this was a better find than than condos because it was more spacious. Eleanor has a fully stocked kitchen and we were pleasantly surprised she even kept things like a tea strainer in her cabinets! Eleanor was also very flexible with check in and check out times which was great as we were driving in from Maryland and had a late evening flight back which was delayed by 5 hours! I like the fact the two bedrooms were on the ground floor as I have a young child. Didn't have to worry about going up flights of stairs with a sleeping child in my arms. Straightforward, friendly and accommodating owners with a beautiful, cozy, spacious townhouse with tons of amenities. Highly recommend for your next trip!"

  • A Great Stay

    "Our stay was for a weekend and we had 4 adults and 3 children in our group. The house is lovely and the pictures and description don't really do justice. It is obvious that this is a home and not just a sterile house. We felt we were staying in a relative's home and it was very welcoming. The kitchen is completely outfitted with everything one could possibly need--whether preparing a full meal or just making morning coffee with multiple choices for whatever you wish to do. The bedrooms are generous sizes and fully outfitted with a range of beds that are comfortable and accommodating. At first look, I was a little concerned that all the pictures on the site were from years ago and maybe the house would not be as nice today but on arrival it was even better than pictured. The grounds are also well maintained and great for young ones to play and run out energy. We definitely look forward to a longer stay in this quality home."

  • Great family time

    "When we first arrived in the cabin we loved the wide open space of the living room and kitchen, the extra T.V. Room was a plus. All four bedrooms were spacious and cozy, my wife and I loved it, especially the kids. We turned on the fire place and played games that was also provided. The location was perfect and a couple of steps to the Appalachian trail was awesome. We are planning to return in the summer!!!"

  • Absolutely Perfect

    "We had a disaster experience with the Mark Addy Inn down the road, and this place became our wedding savior. From the first phone call Barbara was friendly and accommodating. We rented all 3 houses for the weekend for our entire bridal party, and everyone was treated like royalty. The property is gorgeous and spacious, the rooms are stately and elegant yet somehow homey, and a short walk gets you to a pool and lake. Barbara even came by with carrots to let my little nieces and nephews feed the horses. Cannot recommend this place higher, it helped make one of the best weekends of my life!"

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.
