Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Hello Tom and Midge here. We bought the farm in Gordonsville as a second home and to be close to our horses. Tom (a Richmond, VA city boy) loved the farm and Cottage so much that he didn't want to go home after spending weekends in Gordonsville, so we moved here in 2000. After retirement, we no longer have the Tennessee Walking horses, we built another house on the farm, and now our guests get to stay in the beautiful Shade Tree Cottage. Tom's new passion is raising chickens, so you will have farm fresh eggs during your visit.
Why the Owner Chose Gordonsville, VA, USA:
Gordonsville is a beautiful small town, a train goes over an overpass right in the middle of main street, the shops are busy and Restaurant Pomme is spectacular! Shade Tree Cottage is situated on a 5 acre knoll on the 22 acre farm. 100+ year old shade trees keep it cool in the summer and lots of squirrels, rabbits and deer call it home year round.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage is very private, but close to everything! UVA, Monticello, Montpelier, Wintergreen ski resort, award winning wineries, Civil War Museum and historic battlegrounds. Lots of local activities like horseback riding, apple and peach orchards, antiquing and farm visits. Did I mention that we are very close to lots of wedding venues; Wolftrap farm, Keswick Vineyards, Keswick Hall, Castle Hill Cidery, Barboursville Vineyards, Horton Vineyards, and at least 10 churches within 10 miles including the Historic Grace Episcopal? Shade Tree Cottage is perfect for the Bride/Groom's siblings and family to socialize in a private, affordable, comfortable and convenient place. If you need more space ask about the "Little House", a one bedroom cottage on the same property. Great for parents or grandparents or a couple with a baby.
