Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: I was born and raised in Madison County. I have worked at my family's business for 20+ years as the bookkeeper and secretary. I also help with the family beef farm that surrounds the property and manage the Linwood Home. I have been married for 14 years. We have two children. I am a strong believer in feeding my family natural, fresh & organic food. If you are interested I am happy to prepare meals for you and your family during your stay! Please contact me about pricing.

Why the Owner Chose Madison, VA, USA:
The home was purchased in 1987. In 2006 it was sold for retirement. The property went into foreclosure and my family was able to obtained the property in 2012. We decided to make the home a vacation rental because we enjoy escaping to the property and we feel that others will too. We are continuing to make improvements to the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Linwood Home is a peaceful and relaxing escape from today's fast pace. The only sounds you will hear are the birds and wildlife. Enjoy gazing at the stars at night. Grab a book and read on the front porch swing. Sleep peacefully while the rain hits the tin roof.
