About Carla

I have lived in Virginia for 40+ years. I love nature and Clarke County and love the idea of sharing Blue Hill with guests so they can learn about the importance of keeping our natural spaces.

Carla purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Carla chose Shenandoah Valley

It offered us the chance to get away without having to travel far -- it's far enough way from the city but close enough if you need to go into the city!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Blue Hill is nestled in a rural country setting but is a 20 minute drive to Winchester, Berryville and Middleburg.

There are lots of activities - hiking, wine tasting, breweries, historical sites, local farmers markets, drives along scenic country roads, thrifting/flea markets and so much more!

Relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility surrounded by nature and we are pet friendly.

Blue Hill is also a great setting for receptions or weddings - please inquire about our wedding packages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was absolutely perfect for our family getaway. The spaciousness and the provision of every need was so well thought out. We loved the porch, the hot tub and the closeness of the activities in town. We really enjoyed the 2 rooms with TV's so during the football games (those of us who aren't fans) had our escape room - haha! My sister (Cindy K) is not usually impressed with places, but she really liked this one and that made it so worth the cost. We will be back!

Thanks for all,
Oct 2016

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic girl's weekend here. There were plenty of bedrooms, towels, and blankets for everyone. We enjoyed the hot tub, the large living rooms, and spacious kitchen. Plenty of hot water to go around for us all to shower in a row!

Great party house

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for 9 of us who were in Clarke county for a wedding. The bedrooms and baths were comfortable and as represented.

Unfortunately it was rainy most of the time so couldn't take advantage of the wonderful porch, but the inside provided plenty of space to be together. The house has a great "feel" ,the location is perfect, we hope there will be another occasion to rent Blue Hill again.

Great Golf Trip House!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous stay at Blue Hill! Carla our host and Mark our property manager were on the ball when we had even the most minor of questions about where something was located or if we needed a refill or propane. He even brought us a little something extra from the store for the inconvenience that exceeded our expectations! We had a max of 10 guys that rotated in/out over the course of the 3 night stay. The house comfortably sleeps 8 guys in their own bed with a couple of comfortable couches and/or air beds filling out the sleeping arrangements. If you're a golfer thinking about a place to stay that can put your group of 8-12 ppl under one roof - you should consider this property. It's waaaay bigger than it appears in photos too - the downstairs is downright cavernous. We spend most of our time playing cards in the dining room or around the firepit. We never left the property except to golf.

For golf, we played Blue Ridge Shadows (15 min) and Shenandoah Valley (12 min) in Front Royal and the two courses at Rock Harbor (25 min) in Winchester. We are considering returning to the area again because of the great accommodations at Blue Hill and the abundance of other courses we could play on our next trip.

Thank you Carla and Mark for being such gracious hosts!

A wonderful location for gathering friends and family to celebrate a wedding. Carla, the hostess was so gracious and answered all questions in a timely manner. She added that extra touch that easily earned highest rankings

Beautiful property, great house. Our only wish was that there was a place for recycling. Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Mary, Thank you for taking such great care of Blue Hill and I agree our current recycle system is not working for our guests. There is no trash or recycle pick up in Millwood and all items must be separated and then taken to Winchester. Mark and I have been discussing the best options so that guests can recycle and he is able to take recyclables into Winchester - we plan to have something in place soon. We strive to have a minimal impact on the environment by not using any chemicals in our cleaning products (we love 7th generation) and the gardens. Thanks again for choosing Blue Hill for your stay!

Awesome vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

What can I say other than that this is our sixth time staying at Blue Hill.

You won't find a more hospitable owner and the house is awesome. No appointment was left to the imagination when they built this house...Someone very influential must have had it built. Just beautiful...

Location can't be beat either...
