About Chris Freese
I've always had a love for horses and historic properties. In 1984 I decided to combine the two with the purchase this property. Then 25 years later built my dream home on this property, but still love to have guest to enjoy the historic farm house.
Chris Freese purchased this Farmhouse in 1986

What makes this Farmhouse unique
Quiet! End of a road property. So relaxing. Off the beaten path. This farm was formerly owned by the cartoonist, Jeff McNalley, of the cartoon 'Shoe' and he used the summer kitchen/studio to draw his cartoons.

Wonderful, historical home in a beautiful setting
We traveled to the area to witness and participate in the birth of our new foal and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the historic Bird Grove Farm, located in a beautiful, rural area west of Richmond! The home was very comfortable and nicely decorated as it might have been 150 years ago. The family was welcoming, accommodating and the property was clean, tidy and fully prepared for our arrival. I won't spoil the story, but be sure to look into the history of Colonel Thomas "Marse Tom" Booker and his wife Ann; it will enrich the experience. We fully intend to return.
Charming, Historic, Absolutley Beautiful
We stayed at Bird Grove while in town for a wedding in a weekend in October. We were a party of 6 and one small dog. The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming, and addressed any issues we had in a timely manner. The beds were comfortable and the house was full of those wonderful creaks and noises you’d expect in an almost 200 year old farm house. One bedroom had a double bed, two twins and a full bath. The other master bedroom had a queen bed, but you do have to step down a short flight of stairs to get into the bathroom, as it in a part of the house that was an addition and not originally planned to connect to the main house. It was unique and charming, but may be difficult for people with physical limitations to manage the steps easily in the middle of the night. We spent a good deal of our time in the basement kitchen and dining area, cooking, grazing and playing some games we had brought, but the rest of our time was spent exploring the farm, petting the horses, and fishing in the pond. We truly did not want to leave!
Lots to do with the kids - a lot of history, charm, and nature.
We had a blast with our three boys and puppy. We caught lots of fish in the pond, went for hikes on the property, got some B.B. gun practice. The home is listed as having “outdoor grilling” but there’s really just a small camping size charcoal grill, which was our only surprise. We would definitely stay here again, but I would just bring my own grill - it was a wonderful long weekend on a great piece of farmland.
Beautiful and peaceful
We stayed at Bird Grove while visiting our son for Family Weekend at Longwood. It was comfortable, clean and so beautiful! Mornings on the porches drinking coffee and listening to the birds were so relaxing! We loved visiting the horses. We brought a couple poles and got some fishing in! My husband caught a bass his first cast!! The owners came and welcomed us and said hello. They were very friendly and accommodating. The house is amazing. Definitely can feel the history that the house holds as you walk from room to room. It is lovely and so well kept. We would definitely stay here again!!
