About the Property

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Travelers Rest is listed in the King & Queen book of historical homes. There are two houses. The main house was build in 1860. The original house, which is now the guest house was build in 1750. This historical home will set you back in time, with its old woodwork and lavish you with all the modern comforts.
Travelers Rests name comes from it being a place George Washington would stop and rest when he was traveling between Washington and Williamsburg. Travelers Rest Farm promises georgeous sunrises and relaxing sunsets. Take a chair and enjoy the views that made us fall in love with this place.
You can enjoy this peaceful place by yourself, with family and/or friends. If you desire to hide out this is your place. If you would like to have a little activity riding, yoga, get a massage or take floral design classes from a German master florist.
This 1760 house is a beautiful renovated with two bedrooms upstairs. One bedroom has a king size bed, the other bedroom has two twin size beds, sharing the bathroom. Downstairs is a full kitchen, another bathroom, laundry room and living room. Additional guest can be easily accommodated in this historical home.
