About the Property
Centrally Located Halfway Between Richmond And Charlottesville.
The beauty and peace of the Virginia countryside is wonderfully uplifting. Take time out for a spiritual retreat. Leave behind the problems of our busy materialistic world and gain greater personal fulfillment.
A weekend at Newstead provides an opportunity to think more deeply about what is going on in our inner lives and may help you find the deeper meaning of life.
A total of three bedrooms with queen sized beds are available.
Afternoon tea and scones are available in the sitting room overlooking the South lawn by special request.
The James River is nearby for boating, tubing and swimming.
At night the Milky Way spills over the country sky.
Walk down the country lane and out into the field to visit the resident flock of sheep and their guardian dog, Simone.
Carriage rides available by special arrangement.

Visitors should not miss a visit to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello just 39 miles from Newstead. There's a lot to see there. You can go back again and again. Other President's homes are also nearby. Ash Lawn, Poplar Forest, Montpelier, and Mount Vernon a little farther. More of our nation's Presidents are from Virginia than any other state.
A visit to Appomattox should not be overlooked. You go back in time and experience what it must have been like when the South surrendered.
St. John's historic church in Richmond, where Patrick Henry gave his famous speech 'Give me liberty or give me death', has stirring actors who give reenactments of that historic day.
Some visitors have commented about the water pressure. Please be aware that we are in the country. There is no problem with the water pressure. Please do not expect well water pressure in the country be to the same as that you are used to in the city.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Peaceful, historic property with sweeping views of the countryside. A large swing strategically placed to enjoy the pastures dotted with cows, horses, sheep and gamboling lambs. Quiet lanes for walking. Wonderful retreat and renewal location. Central to all sorts of historic sites, president's homes, museums and water sports on the James River. Take a day trip. Learn something about our Country's history or go for a days outing on the James River Then stock up at the grocery store and head back to Newstead's wonderful apartment kitchen to prepare dinner as you like it!
