Lovely 1898 country estate home located in the historic Keswick area, in walking distance to Castle Hill. Turkey Run Farm is convenient to Charlottesville, but far enough away for amazing peace and quiet, and night skies. Very accessible to Monticello, Montpelier, Ash Lawn, many of the area’s most celebrated vineyards and cideries, the University of Virginia, the historic Charlottesville downtown, the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Skyline Parkway. Fantastic views of the Southwest Mountains can be enjoyed from several vantage points, complete with regular sightings of wild turkeys, albino and piebald deer and Bald Eagles. A wonderful, relaxing place to walk and ride bikes, Turkey Run Farm is a gracious and welcoming environment for family reunions, bridal party groups, smaller wedding receptions and company retreats. (There is an event charge for gatherings of greater than 20 guests, and a porta-potty requirement.)
Four private bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and living room with fireplace are located on the main floor, with a stone family room and large farm kitchen in the English basement. Front and rear porches and stone terrace offer exquisite, unsullied views of the Southwest Mountains.
It should be noted here too, that Turkey Run Farm truly is nestled into the embrace of nature. That means that our guests will be experiencing authentic rural life in contrast to an environmentally controlled hotel or in-town dwelling. This also includes some bugs in the summertime. And, like all rural properties in the mid-atlantic region the new bug on the block is the indomitable, but friendly, stinkbug. We seem to have them the worst mostly in the October time frame when they too are seeking a cozy VRBO for a long winter vacation, but a few are with all of us year round these days.
