We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. What a wonderful place with all the amenities!
This is a great place to get away from it all! The views are wonderful. We enjoyed seeing and feeding the miniature horses and hearing the cows. It is well appointed and a great place to relax.
peaceful mountain retreat
Our family enjoyed a relaxing and peaceful week at High Fields Farm. Whether swimming in the pool, having a cup of coffee on the screened patio, reading a book while rocking on the front porch, or watching the birds and ponies from the gazebo, there are many ways to kick back and enjoy the serenity of this hill-top oasis. The house was spotless, with freshly laundered bedding, bath and pool towels, and a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill.
The great location afforded easy access to the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge hiking trails, historic Charlottsville, Monticello, etc. The beautiful tasting room of Early Mountain Winery and the laid-back ambience of Bald Top Brewery are minutes away.
In our week at High Fields, we felt we only scratched the surface of everything the area has to offer. We look forward to our next visit.
The property is very peaceful. The owner is fantastic about communicating and he is very accomodating. The house is clean and beautifully decorated- it felt like home for the weekend. The location is perfect to travel to Charlottesville or any of the nearby towns which host great places to eat and shop. We didn't get to swim because it was a bit chilly, but the pool is in a great spot, very private. The beds were super comfy too, which is something we always look for in a rental! Also, the miniature horses were very sweet. They came right to the fence for petting. We will be back!
Immaculate Welcoming Home
We made valuable family memories this weekend. We enjoyed the pool, views of mountains and stars, the very welcoming house with everything so well kept and so many wonderful details provided, miniature horses were fun to see and greet, and fishing. Hope to have more memories there in the future.
Alton’s property is absolutely stunning and the pictures do it no justice. The rental was very clean, organized and had everything we needed. He was available for questions and very helpful with recommendations. The miniature horses on the property are an added bonus and the hiking trials were great and well marked. Such an amazing stay and experience.
