About Audrey Daggett

Bill and Kathy Daggett purchased their Earlysville home in early 2000. Bill, after attending the University of Virginia, became an architect, currently focusing on humane animal shelter designs. Kathy, born and raised in Kansas, arrived in Charlottesville in the late 80's. A former insurance executive, she is now owner of Farley's Bar & Grill in her home town of Lindsborg, Kansas.

Audrey Daggett purchased this house in 2000

Why Audrey Daggett chose Central Virginia

With it's proximity to the airport and quiet country setting the home is a perfect choice for group and family vacations. Our close proximity to Charlottesville and Albemarle county allows you easy access to shopping, wine tours, UVA games and all the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

After their 5 children moved on to make their own families Bill and Kathy decided they would like to share their expansive home with people looking for a whole family alternative to traditional hotels.

What makes this house unique

Besides the obvious bonus of having a private pool and hot tub, The White Elephant offers an affordable alternative to families and those looking to have a more private group experience than traditional hotels can offer. With two full size kitchens and two outdoor grills the possibilities for a family style experience with all the amenities a home has to offer are yours for the taking!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughter had her wedding there this past weekend, and everything was lovely. You couldn't have a more beautiful setting, and the house is wonderful with every need and comfort provided. It's very close to the airport with grocery stores and drug stores within an easy drive. She said the owners were very nice and easy to talk with. A wonderful weekend!

The Perfect Home for My Son's Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home was great for my husband and I and several other family members who attended my son's wedding. It allowed ten family and friends from all over the US to be together for a dinner the night before and to spend time together the day of the wedding. Lots of space to accommodate a large group of people We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say more great things about this house. We used it for a bachelorette weekend and had about 10-12 girls staying there. So many rooms, bathrooms and couches that we all fit comfortably. The kitchen had all the staples you need, plus some extra stuff. The pool was amazing and nicer than the pictures show. This house is in a great location that we were able to do a day trip to some wineries. I have already recommended this to many friends and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Very nice home. Perfect for a summer get-away for several couples or a larger family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family group of 9 adults. There are four bedrooms in the main house, all with attached bathrooms. These are all great and well-appointed. There is a separate pool house that has a fold-out couch. We had intended to use that as a fifth bedroom, however it is pretty separate from the main house and was not as appealing for sleeping, especially since we were there in late fall (not the house's fault!). The rest of the house was superb; kitchen, dining room, living room, etc. Wifi and TV's were abundant and excellent. The owners were excellent in all respects including communication, checking in with us and leaving us to ourselves once we were settled. The pool and outside features looked like they would be nice, although not in the late fall/winter when it is a bit cool to use them. All in all, this is an excellent property with everything you would expect in a nice four-bedroom home.

Amazing property, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Audrey, we had the best time at your home! It's unbelievable how lovely the property, pool and house are. Incredibly maintained and set up to accommodate many people easily. The decor of the house, the architecture... all just beautiful. We really had a great time. It was so nice to have the linens and towels there for us and cleaning was perfect upon arrival. The kitchen was fully stocked, beds and pillows comfortable and super clean. Even the throw blankets for the couch were clean and smelled freshly laundered. Thanks for everything- you were great to work with!
