Historic 1790's Luxury Farm House on 500 Pastoral Acres

Bedrooms 2
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Historic Rosny Farm is located on hundreds of acres in the heart of Virginia close to Farmville, Appomattox and the James River in rural Buckingham County. The house, originally constructed in the late 1700's, has undergone a careful renovation that made the kitchen state of the art including a Viking Range, updated both original wood burning fireplaces for guests to enjoy, refinished the original heart of pine floors and plaster walls and added two new bedrooms in the English Basement. The furniture and fixtures are all luxury, high-end -- some of which are antiques. Guests can enjoy miles and miles of exploring along trails through field and forest and creeks. Moreover, Rosny is a working organic farm that raises grass fed beef and pork as well as free range hens for eggs. Families will enjoy jumping into the daily farm activities or cooking up fresh farm raised beef to serve on the gracious west facing porch that spans the length of the house. Guests can horseback ride at nearby Sprouses Corner Ranch. However, if one wants to simply relax and get away in the country - this is the place to do it. Rock for hours on the porch or relax by the fire with a book. The bedrooms are one queen bed and one set of twin beds, each with their own bathroom. Longwood and Hampden-Sydney College are both nearby as is historic Buckingham Courthouse and Appomattox Courthouse.

Beautiful farm house, beautiful farm

  • 5 of 5

The redone farm house is gorgeous. We had a fun time trying to figure out what was original and what was addition/remodel. Sitting out on the porch in the evening and contemplating the peaceful surroundings was our required evening activity. Our dogs loved the fields for exercise. We would not hesitate to come back the next time we are in the area.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is absolutely magical! This is our second visit, and we sought solace here to mourn the passing of our brother-in-law. It is so peaceful and welcoming. The night skies are incredible! We thoroughly enjoyed the two farm dogs (Scout and we don't know the other dog's name - we called him "Buddy"). The cattle were soothing listening to them talk among themselves and there were several newborn calves. The sheep were a little aloof, but we were able to coax them out of the shed for a couple of photos. The owner was extremely responsive to our request and we are very thankful for her quick confirmation of our visit. We will definitely return and consider this our "home away from home".

We loved this sweet farm~ the peace and quiet was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to stay at this farm as a weekend getaway while riding on the High Bridge Trail (about 25 minutes away).

We loved the rolling farmland and forests, the friendly pigs, cows, chicken and sheep. We even collected the eggs for breakfast :).

The house was very comfortable, updated nicely, with an excellent front porch overlooking the farm. Very peaceful, with no sounds of city or traffic. The sunset was lovely as well as stargazing.

We would definitely return if in the area again.

An amazing place

  • 4 of 5

This was a great, unique place to stay. I would definitely return . The setting is absolutely wonderful. Hot and muggy all around us, but the porch seemed to defy summer. My preference is to cook in, and the kitchen is splendid. However, if you plan on doing the same, you might want to consider bringing cookware you think essential. I am not often sorry to leave a place, but I could have easily extended my stay if only time allowed.

A National Treasure!

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful and magical place. Perfectly situated for rest and relaxation. Yet, 2O mins from everything you need and an hour beautiful drive to Monticello or Appomattox. Serene, comfortable , welcoming and a true Virginia farm experience. ( won't lie -stopped at the fence line and fed the goats , cows and chickens...hay, grass and a corn cob) Comfortable cottage with everything you need. Great helpful owners.

This is a real "National Treasure!" And, believe me I know what I am talking about. A writers' porch paradise where I got lots of work done and read two novels over 5 days! Thx Julie! (one suggestion: do wash those windows! the pasture view-and its visiting wildlife of deer and foxes- was too nice to cloud)
