Live near DC. The cars weaving in out on 95 and 66, horns honking when there is no where to go.... felt like I was suffocating and knew I needed some peace and quiet
Took, by mistake but in a good way, almost all back toads.
When my daughter and I reached our destination, we smiled and sighed. Warm welcome from Agnès and furry friends.
Once we entered our "George was here" retreat, we did not leave. House is a little hard to navigate if you have any physical disabilities and not all the comforts of home but pretty close. The magic moment, which turned into hours, was sitting out back surrounded in every direction , by the most amazing, serene backdrop created by mother nature and the years of hard work of Agnès and her family. The geese had a parade my way and gave quite a musical performance. The horses came up to the fence and definitely smiled at me. It is so quiet, you can hear the pecans drop to the ground from their tree. Made me realize how crazy our lives are. You need to remind yourself to just breath and appreciate the real treasures. Use all your senses!
Perfect place to reset
I elected to take my little boy and I out to the countryside for a quick two day trip from DC to start the new year off right. It did exactly what I had hoped — offered us downtime away from the city, stunning views, a chance to romp around outside, meet sweet horses and dogs, explore, and just have fun. The history of the house is awesome. The king bed is so comfortable that I went online to try and replicate some of it once I got home. There is a room perfect for little ones, and my guy loved playing with the wooden trucks. Thank you for the wonderful stay, great memories. We hope to return soon!
What a nice visit they had.
So glad they enjoyed they visit
Great Country Setting!
If your looking for a rustic farm to retreat to from the hustle & bustle of a long day of enjoying all the area has to offer, then this is the place for you! The home is true to the time period as mentioned. Beautiful acreage for just relaxing & taking in the scenic view. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 not because I felt anything was done wrong. There were just a couple of things that I thought could use some updating. We were there in the summer. The air-conditioning for that time of year was a little challenging to keep it cooled at times. But all units did work. The big beautiful wooden front door inside the house couldn’t be opened. So you had to walk out the back door around the house to get to the front which had awesome views of the horses in the pastures. I’m sure because of the age & history of the house these kind of repairs need special TLC. But it would’ve been nice to enjoy the view from the door on that side of the house. The windows in the living room are beautiful big large windows. It would be nice to take advantage of the views they have. If the bushes were to be cut back some that would allow a view from those windows. Again, this is just my way of looking at it. Not trying to say one way is right or wrong. Agnes is very welcoming and kind and friendly! She made us feel right at home! She was very respectful of our privacy while we were there! And was very available if we needed anything at any time. Thank you Agnes!!! We wish you all the best in future ventures!
Historic charm & horses
We used Traveler's Rest as a launch for area historic sites: it's almost equi-distant from Wiliamsburg/Yorktown/Jamestown, Mt Vernon, and Monticello. A bonus was finding a house w/a history and horses! It's on the same road as the area library and only 6 miles from a grocery. Agnes was raised w/horses, and her comfort around them and knowledge about them is evident. She took my daughter on a couple trail rides, infecting her with the desire to ride more. If you appreciate rural living, big dogs, horses, rustic old houses,and don't mind getting a little dirty (we mucked stalls for fun :-), its a lovely retreat.
Warm, friendly, and a space away from everything. We loved the horses and dogs.
