  • Relaxing weekend

    "I booked this property last minute (literally the day before) for a weekend getaway for my wife and I and the owner could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Place was clean, private, and near most of the great SML fun spots. Mitchell's Pointe is literally a half mile walk (food, boat rentals). Dock and cove great for sunbathing and swimming. Screened in deck great for morning coffee. Had a great stay for wife's birthday!"

  • Awesome getaway!

    "We love treehouses and have stayed in various ones around the world. The Charlottesville treehouse exceeded our expectations! I wanted to plan a surprise early Valentine's Day getaway, but wanted to keep it fairly local to where we live. I found the treehouse on VRBO and Leora was prompt with email responses. When we arrived we were stoked on the awesomeness of the treehouse. It is very welcoming, clean, funky, and fun! One of our favorite parts about the treehouse is how close it is to everything. Typically when we stay in treehouses they are way off the beaten path and require us to drive to do anything. Although we drove a few places, they were all very close! We ate at some great local restaurants (that were recommended in the treehouse book- thanks!), hung out at the treehouse and read, took walks down by the river just below the treehouse, and took a little day trip up to Monticello and hiked up the walking trail to the house (Thanks for the recommendation Leora!). Everything was 5-15 minutes from the treehouse. We also brought our Westie with us to stay in the treehouse, which is pet friendly :) She loved it, especially all the birds and squirrels. Although we stayed in the treehouse in the peak of winter, we stayed warm. The first night it was cold outside, but we made a fire in the log stove and it kept us warm all night. The treehouse is also equipped with space heaters and electric blankets. The second day we were there it was gorgeous out and we spent the day with the windows open and hanging out on the porch listening to music. The only downside is that the bathroom is outside of the main part of the treehouse enclosed on the opposite side of the deck from the front door. I love an outdoor shower any time of year, but in the middle of winter I wish the half bathroom had been inside. The treehouse was just what we both needed. We had a great stay and hope to make it back one day! Will def. recommend to friends!"

  • Exceeded expectations!

    "My wife and I were looking for a cozy place to celebrate our 33rd anniversary that wasn't just typical... and we found it here! Folks, the nice pics you see are a fine representation of what you'll experience. Clean, cozy, quiet, and beautiful! We had a fantastic time at the lake and this condo really topped off our trip!"

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.
