About Richard Smith
Our family has cherished this special farm since we bought in 1995. Since building the new house, we have shared it with numerous friends and families who come out to regroup, renew, and get inspired by the natural beauty of the place.

Why Richard Smith chose Madison
Most beautiful place we had ever seen in Virginia. We had been camping, hiking, climbing and biking in this area for years, and fell more in love with it every time we visited. We bought it to create a place for families to bond. Great place for family reunions and get-togethers.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The area is uniquely rich in character. The edge of the Piedmont and the Blue Ridge is flush with beautiful organic farms, wineries, and incredible cycling and hiking. Great base to visit Charlottsville and Monticello (35 miles), Luray (30 miles), Skyline Drive (18 miles), Sperryville (12 miles), Little Washington (15 miles), Flint Hill (17 miles),Orange (15 miles) and to take advantage of countless small antique shops and artist galleries that are close by.

Awesome family getaway in spectacular modern log home
Everything was there for us from the start. Beautifully furnished. Plenty of lovely suites for all. Quiet location and wonderful views of mountains from extensive deck that gets sun all day. Attentive, pleasant, and so helpful caretaker on adjoining property. Planned our next visit before leaving.
Be prepared for restricted cell phone service/coverage depending on your carrier.
Outdoor spaces are well tended and expansive.
Worth it in every way!
We booked this property for a short executive retreat and we had a wonderful experience. It was a stunning location with comfortable furnishings and amenities. Would definitely consider returning for another visit. Richard and Penny were both extremely helpful and gracious in helping us prepare for our stay.
So glad to host your executive team and pleased it worked well for your group of twelve. Please do come back and visit us again!
Spectacular house, great location and what a view.
Can’t say enough about this property. Our group had a special and memorable stay, enjoying the home and surrounding nature, including hiking I. Nearby Shenandoah national Park. We would happily book again!
The house has everything our group could want or need. 5 boys and 4 adults enjoyed hiking , fishing, cooking playing and relaxing. We enjoyed hiking in the Shenandoah mountains, visiting DuCard winery, and resupllying in Sperryville. Highly recommend, and we will certainly come again.
This is the spot
Our trip was a group of dads looking for time away. It's hard to find a decent rental for large groups in the area that is actually set up well for a large group. The house was perfect. Responsive owner. Fantastic views off the front porch. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space. The kitchen was great for feeding a large group. This place is the real deal. We'd definitely come back.
Located only a short way from Old Rag Mountain, White Oak Canyon, and Skyline Drive in Blue Ridge Parkway, this location is perfect for those looking for a comfortable retreat surrounded by nature.
