Why Carole C. Grove chose Churchville
It would be hard to find a better location for a vacation rental. For historians, we are in the heart of colonial America and a comfortable drive to the Nation's Capital in Washington, DC. Another direction will take you to the beautiful Atlantic Beaches for a quick overnite stay or a long day's outing. Naturalists will enjoy pristine mountain streams known for exceptional trout fishing, or expansive National forests with mountain lakes. This property is well suited for people who wish to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings of the Valley and mountains, as well as those who wish to visit the myriad of attractions nearby or within short driving distance. It is a perfect place for photographers, artists, musicians, birdwatchers, writers or those simply seeking rest and relaxation. The four distinctive seasons lend themselves uniquely to a vacation anytime of the year. This is a family friendly home with safe outside play areas for children. Our farm menagerie includes donkeys, sheep, cattle, and beautiful laying hens who lay colorful eggs - including green and blue! Our family pets include friendly dogs and cats and two retired ponies. Our guests can enjoy the bounty of our family garden while they are here as well as fresh eggs if they like.
What makes this Cottage unique
Two of the most st striking benefits of staying here are the magnificent morning vistas of the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains. Often the morning mist outlines the layers of mountain tops that cause you to pause, and often get your camera! Equally as beautiful, are the spectacular starry skies that are displayed on clear, cool nights. With no light pollution from urban areas, the starry skies are a sight to behold!

We loved our time at the cottage. Our children had a blast with all of the animals, including the opportunity to feed the baby lambs. The setting is idyllic. May was a bit cold for the pool - but it was still refreshing and would be incredible on a hot summer day. We look forward to our next visit.
Beautiful location in rural VA. Situated on many acres of land, with a nice quiet retreat. Cabin was rustic but very comfortable for my family of 6. Highly recommend! Thank you Carole.
Wonderful home for family
This was a wonderful solution for our family who was joining together for a wedding from all parts of the country. Amazing experience from start to finish.
Churchville, VA Farm House
Wonderful house in rural area.
Property owners are near by and very attentive.
Incredibly beautiful setting and lovely hosts
We're just back from a perfect break at the cottage. It's cosy and homely with everything you need, but the highlights for us were the stunning scenery and peaceful pool looking out over the mountains. Carole and Jim were warm and generous hosts, and their many animals made our children very happy. We're still feeling relaxed even after a 24 hour journey home!
It was a joy to have you and your family travel so far and choose our Cottage for your stay. We hope you will come again when you are on this side of the Atlantic and enjoy that pool again, along with the animals we are sure to still have. We are always happy to have children come and enjoy the outdoors and our farm "critters" in their natural setting. Glad you had a safe journey home. Hoping to see you all again in the not-do-distant future!
The Shenandoah National Park is a short drive away as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. In addition there are a number of vineyards nearby as well as stables for horseback riding. Wonderful restauarants, museums, farmers' markets, antique shops, and the American Shakespeare Company at the Black Friar Theatre are all within a short 20 minute drive. For day trips, Natural Bridge, Luray Caverns, Historic Charlottesville and Lexington are all less than an hour's drive. A fun place for the whole family is the Green Valley Book Fair, open 6 times a year for two weeks. A day on the farm offers trails through the woods for hiking, a large private in-ground pool for day or evening swimming, a fire-pit for chilly evenings and making 'smores,' and a variety of farm animals including sheep, mules, donkeys, cattle, and ten beautiful laying hens, some that lay colored eggs! Brilliant starry skies will amaze you at the end of the day!
