Chestnut Oak Farm is a luxurious western-style lodge retreat on a 90 acre horse farm near the base of Old Rag Mountain. The lodge was constructed in 2009 using granite blocks from the farm and huge Virginia pine logs in a western style of rustic elegance. The lodge is surrounded by decks and porches to take in the magnificent view over Hidden Valley, Old Rag Mountain, the farm's twin ponds, and the horses grazing in the fields. The lodge is equipped with a Chef's Kitchen, huge dining room (we have seated sixteen), double-sided fireplace, baby grand piano, screened porch, and covered porch. The main lodge house has three Master Bedrooms, and two other large bedrooms with a shared bath. Downstairs is a walkout game room with foosball, ping pong, bar, and a fire pit/movie pit with 52' screen TV. The outdoor 8 person hot tub is steps away, overlooking the pond.
150 feet down the hill below the pond is the 'Guest' Treehouse. The treehouse is a cedar sided two level cabin-style house which sleeps six, with full bath and kitchen--and an optional fire pole exit for the adventurous. This treetop aerie has to be seen to be believed!
The farm has a small herd of horses, two alpacas (Mike and Ike), and a growing assortment of other farm animals including peacocks. We have hiking trails on the property. A fantastic network of both gravel and paved roads fans out from the farm for incredible short and long distanced cycling routes. Or you can leave the farm to hike the incredible local trails or fish the local streams, or visit some of the local wineries or organic farms. We are 35 miles from Charlottsville, and 82 miles from Washington DC.
Caretakers live onsite and can help out with questions, firewood, directions, and even with provisioning if desired. They are happy to arrange spectacular custom-guided trail rides from a local stable in the surrounding mountains--even overnight camping trips.
