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!

CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE BELOW FOR MUCH MORE INFORMATION--keep scrolling it's a ways down! View the "What our guest say" page on our website.

PLEASE NOTE that in addition to Carries Cottage we have our three bedroom High Fields Farm (property # 37211) and our Carriage House Studio (property # 79494).
