What makes this house unique

Relaxing on the patio or inside the 'wall of glass' enjoying the peace and quiet of the sunrise or the evening hours. When there is a chill in the air, we have a roaring fire in the living room or light the fire pit outside on the patio.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly what our family needed to relax for a few days while touring the area. It is close to Charlottesville, wineries, breweries, etc. The owner is responsive, professional and friendly. The home is warm and comfortable yet still large and perfect for entertaining numbers of guests. My wife found an over-sized chair in the den that faces a wall of glass to a field for a yard. She said she could have sat there for days just reading and relaxing. Our kids had plenty of room to play and explore. Our daughter cried big tears when it was time to leave proving it was a successful visit!

Perfectly pleased!

  • 5 of 5

Our immediate family of six adults and seven kids ages 3-14 enjoyed a four night stay in this amazing home and it was perfect in every sense. The private and scenic setting brought necessary relaxation and quiet, whether after interactive play on the premises, local hiking nearby, or joining a nearby reunion with 77 extended family members. The owners were gracious and helpful, as needed; there was a true sense of family life within the home! Thank you, Murphys, for providing the perfect setting for us to build more family memories of our own! (The gaga pit and BB court were a big hit for all!)

Beautiful home close to wineries and downtown

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house that is well-appointed and perfect for families and large groups to relax and enjoy the Charlottesville area! It was very clean and decorated beautifully. The bedrooms are separated throughout the house for privacy, with plenty of bathrooms to accommodate large groups. We spent one night there and were able to go to several local wineries, as well as enjoy the grounds around the house. Our only regret was that we wished that we had decided to stay for two nights! We would definitely like to come back and stay longer.

Perfect get-away with old friends!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 3 nights in this lovely home with friends traveling from different states in the mid-Atlantic and South. This home is large, with several gathering spaces to accommodate 8-10 adults, as well as quiet corners to have a conversation or read a book. The outdoor space is fantastic; the home overlooks a deer-populated meadow that became an impromptu golf course. it was a short drive to Charlottesville and more wineries and breweries than we could visit in our 3 day stay. Owners were flexible and accessible.
