Why Jeana O'Connor chose Gainesboro
We have always wanted to homestead. We decided to move to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, and purchased our 1833 farmhouse in 2012. We have been renovating our house and establishing our homestead since then. We have chickens and goats and a very friendly dog named Kate. Our goal is to grow our own fruits, vegetables and nuts, as well as eggs, chicken, and dairy.

Relaxing & convenient getaway
We had a great experience, highly recommend this place, and will definitely come back another time. The location is convenient from the highway but just far enough out in the countryside that you can't help but relax. The owners were polite and professional, and they made it easy to get checked in. The inside of this little house is incredible, a mix of modern and old country. Very cool renovations and furniture, beautiful bathroom and kitchen, comfortable bed, games and books and dvds if you want entertainment. The property is very country, goats and chickens at the top of the hill, a fire ring, wonderful little patio with tables to sit at. We spent the day driving through Shenandoah National Park, stopped at a vineyard and brought a bottle of wine, had dinner in Winchester, then relaxed and watched a movie on the couch. A fantastic experience. And if you're looking for a place to eat, we recommend Bonnie Blue in Winchester for delicious bbq.
Bonnie Blue catered our wedding, so we can recommend them too! Thanks for your kind review.
Beautiful property and welcoming hosts
We had a great stay in Winchester. The farm was the perfect launching pad for some day hiking in nearby West Virginia. Jeana and John were great hosts and were very friendly and welcoming.
Charming and cozy cottage
We had a wonderful week on the farm. It was so relaxing to sit out on the swings and soak in nature and watching all the farm animals. The location was great for day trips and relaxing evenings. Beautiful back roads of Virginia. Thank you John and Jeana!
Only if you like ants, spiders, and filthy cottages, will you enjoy this property. Be ready to go to Winchester Virginia to buy fresh towels. Washer/dryer broken. WiFi is not available. Hope you don’t loose electricity, it’s horrible. No real parking! SUCKS. Wouldn’t recommend this to anyone!!!
A truly shocking review from terrible guests. This couple did not check out on time. We had to ask them to leave because we had another booking. When they left, the house was filthy. They brought a cat, without our permission, and the bathroom was covered in dirty cat litter. The fridge was full of their food. We had to scramble to get the cottage ready for our next guests.
The electricity went out due to a huge thunderstorm. It was out for our entire area for approximately 4 hours. We have wi-if.
There is ample parking for 8-10 cars on our farm, and we even let this couple park on the grass right by the door because they didn’t want to have to walk up the stairs to the cottage door.
There are 6 fresh, clean towels in the cottage at all times. The washer was not working due to another renter opening the door before the cycle finished and breaking the lock. The new lock was on order and we offered to do any laundry they needed in our house. We clean the house thoroughly between guests, and have never had a single negative review on the cleanliness of our cottage.
This couple are the worst guests we have ever had and we reviewed them accordingly.
Very clean and great place to stay.
The property was awesome and the owners were great host.
