  • Beautiful Condo!

    "This condo was just perfect for our intimate wedding location and reception! The view of the lake from the condo was breathtaking. It was very spacious and tastefully decorated with a fully stocked kitchen. The master bedroom decor is a dream! Owner was extremely helpful in planning the location of the wedding and was accomodating on the check-in time on the day of the wedding. Definitely want to return for a relaxing weekend at Belview Bay Get-a-Way at SML!"

  • Great layout!

    "I booked this condo for a long weekend and my two children each brought friends. The downstairs was perfect for the teenagers while I enjoyed the spacious loft. This was my first experience renting from VRBO and the owner was helpful with information and very easy to work with. I will definitely do this again!"

  • Pictures do not do this cabin justice!

    "Wow! We made our travel plans very last minute and were happy to find a place to stay for just one night. THe owners have made many updates on the exterior that these pictures do not give the home justice. When you walk in you see all the attention to detail with a variety of antiques and hardwood floors. It is like you stepped back into the 1800's but still have the amenities of a modern cabin. It is very isolated , just you and the stream. The back deck gives a great view of the river below. Very relaxing. We have rented many homes and this one falls into the "way more than expected" for the price."

  • Recharging my batteries

    "Thank you for sharing your cabin with me and my dog, Lucy. The pictures do not do it or the location justice. It was just the vacation hide-away I was looking for and the beautiful and quiet location made unwinding easy. March turned out to be a great time to visit. Despite several days of low temperatures, the cabin is so well insulated that we were quite comfortable – and it was even warm enough one day to enjoy the screened porch. You’ve stocked the cabin with all sorts of things to ensure no panic trips to the store for a forgotten item. The loft was absolutely charming, but your description of the steps was on point (Lucy made it as far as the landing – twice and wouldn’t go any further and she’s used to steps because we live in a three level townhouse), so I stayed downstairs and got some of the best sleep of my life in that incredible downstairs bed. The dining room table was great for card making and the overhead light in the great room provided plenty of light in the evening to continue with various craft projects. Lucy's favorite spot was by the sliding glass door where she could watch the woods from the comfort of the house. Thank you for making me and Lucy feel so welcome - it was wonderful and I look forward to return visits."

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.
