  • Reunion dream!

  • Great Spot

    "Great Spot to get away from it. Lovely quiet community with most amenities a short drive away. Superb for those wanting to brush up on civil war history, the area drips with it! Most things you need are in the house, but would say that it would have been nice to have had some outdoor furniture for the deck as it was summer and perhaps a convenient gas BBQ, but this doesn't detract from the overall place. Great spot. Many thanks!"

  • Wonderful Thanksgiving

    "Two families (4 adults and 3 teenagers) met to spend a delightful weekend at this lovely farm. We arrived at Cardinal Springs the day before Thanksgiving. Because of a snowstorm we arrived much earlier than the stated check-in time. When I apologized for the early arrival, Steve was very understanding. We were able to put both of the farmhouse kitchens to good use cooking and enjoying our Thanksgiving feast. Our teenaged daughters loved checking out the property, meeting the goats, horses and mules as well as the very friendly barn cats. I had a great time as an amateur chicken tender, collecting eggs and even petting one of the sweetest hens you will ever meet. The farm is located to give you the feeling of isolation even though the town of Sperryville and several other towns are very close-by. I recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a rustic setting with all of the conveniences of home."

  • Get Away

    "Great place and location. Easy to get to DC, Alexandria, Arlington, Dulles, Reagan, Etc. Could not have asked for a better unit, except the challenge of living on 3 floors. Beautiful Townhouse, well equipped. You name it, it was there. A great place for a 4 day getaway or a month. This place will serve all your needs."

Except for this region, most of Northern Virgina is relatively flat. Farmlands and ranches stretch for miles and are interspersed with avenues of tall trees. The region is particularly beautiful in the fall season when the rusty hues contrast with the green grass and red farm barns.
