Imagine telling your friends you slept in a BARN! But it is the most luxurious barn you can imagine. This apartment is the former milking parlor and office of a 1940's era dairy barn. The barn is now a horse stables, but don't worry, you will not smell or hear horses from inside the apartment. You will, however, see them through the large windows, and you may stroll through the barn to see them up close, or take a few steps over to their paddocks, where you can pet them, feed them apples and carrots, and watch them play.
This iconic bell-roofed barn is at the center of the farm complex at Wolftrap Farm, where we have six other vacation rental homes and host over 50 weddings each year. We converted the Barn Apartment from being a tack room and lounge area for the stables in the spring of 2017. Watch and feed apples and carrots to the horses in the paddocks outside your front door. Take hikes through the woods, fish in our ponds, meet your neighbors who may be staying at the other homes on the farm, and enjoy the incredible views of our little mountain range and our pastures and woods.
The farm is super-easy to get to (just one turn off a major U.S. highway and after a mile on our farm road, you are there), and is convenient to Monticello, Montpelier, a half-dozen great wineries (most notably, Barboursville and Early Mountain). We are half-way between Gordonsville and Orange (5 miles to each) where you will find excellent restaurants, grocery stores and anything you need during your visit. There is also plenty of antique shopping and beautiful countryside to drive through.
The farm is also convenient to Monticello, Montpelier, UVA, Skyline Drive, a half dozen excellent wineries, and all the beauty of the countryside around Charlottesville.
Wolftrap Farm has been hosting vacationers since 2004 to rave reviews, and in the past few years has become one of Virginia's most popular farm wedding venues. Come see why.
