Carrie's Cottage on Fairhill Farm

"Once you arrive the stress just melts away!"

A charming and beautifully appointed country cottage privately situated just past the pond on Fairhill Farm, on a working farm of 142 acres adjacent to our 130 acre High Fields Farm and surrounded by other large farms. A idyllic retreat for those wishing to escape life's stresses for a weekend, a week, or longer!

Laze by the pool or relax in a hammock while taking in the panoramic mountain views! Hike for hours on the private trails on our own Jarrell Mountain or continue to Goodall Mountain on our neighboring High Fields Farm!

Our two adjacent farms comprise almost 300 acres with ponds and streams to explore and miniature horses to enjoy. And, of course, stunning mountain views. There are over five miles of private trails. We are less than a 15 minute drive from the Swift Run Gap entrance to the Shenandoah National Park, Skyline and Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Appalachian Trail. We are convenient to historic sites such as Monticello, Montpelier, Ash Lawn and University of Virginia. There are a number of excellent wineries nearby. Please do visit our website below for more information and to view the "What our guests say" page and our "Extras and Add-ons" page.

Satellite television is also provided with the full DirecTV package including the NFL Sunday sports package!

Perfect for one or two couples or a small family!

The Calm I Needed!

  • 5 of 5

My vacation at Carrie's Cottage was perfect. The Keels were so friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was inviting and the views were stunning. The cottage felt very private and secluded. I have never had such a soothing and relaxing vacation! Everything was perfect. I will definitely be staying again.

Lovely Cottage on Picturesque Farm

  • 5 of 5

Our 5 day stay at Carrie's Cottage was peaceful and relaxing. The cottage was a perfect retreat with everything you need for a great stay. The farm has great walking trails with breathtaking views of nearby mountains and is located close to Skyline Drive and other areas of interest. Our stay was perfect in every way and we will definitely visit again. Judith

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a terrific time staying at this cottage. We arrived on Dec 21, 2016 and checked out on Dec 26, 2016. The cottage was super clean was not a speck of dust anywhere. The bathroom was spotless. The bed lines were very clean as well. These are all things that I look for since I am a Professional cleaning person. This is what I do for a living clean houses. The kitchen was fully equipped with all the items that we needed. The Cottage is a very small and cozy. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from it all. The main house sits on the same property but honestly I did not even know if anyone was at home. Seeing the farm animals was wonderful and being able to feed the 2 cats we seen was a delight also as we was missing our 5 cats that we have at home. The mountain view is just wonderful. Very secluded and a great getaway for a man and woman. We will def be back in the near future. Thanks so much

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This cottage provides everything you need for an absolutely heavenly weekend. Alton could not be more helpful and responsive. Everything about Carrie's cottage is right - the kitchen is ideal for cooking in, the fire keeps you warm and the landscape is ideal. Love this place!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

As promised, we were not disappointed. The cottage was very comfortable and the setting tranquil. We enjoyed walking, bird-watching, sitting on the porch, and visiting with our host and his pets. Fresh air, spring water, and splendid views added to the experience. We highly recommend Fairhill Farm and Carrie's Cottage.
