Wolftrap Farm now features seven vacation rental homes, with the conversion of this 1940's era tenant cottage. Built as on-site housing for a "milker" when the farm was a dairy, this cottage is classic. Our 2015 renovation added a second bath and a screened porch for outdoor dining, with views of three adjoining horse paddocks. Guests have access to our fish-filled ponds, endless woodland trails, a "play barn" with pool, ping-pong, Foosball, corn-hole, etc. Great for young families (bring the dog), girls' getaways, multiple generations, wine touring, visits to Monticello, Montpelier and UVA. (NOTE: vrbo & homeaway classify the Milker's Cottage as 3 bedrooms because of the sleeper sofa in the living room. It in fact has only two proper bedrooms, plus the sleeper sofa in the living room.)
The Milker's Cottage is far from the sounds of traffic, but only a mile off U.S. Highway 15, making for easy excursions for sightseeing and shopping. We are halfway between Gordonsville and Orange, so you have your choice of quaint village or County Seat, each less than 5 miles away. Each has abundant restaurants, quaint shops, museums and all modern amenities.
The drive to Monticello through Keswick and Shadwell is one of the most scenic drives in America. Montpelier is just 15 minutes away, directly across the mountains you see from the front of the farm.
Barboursville, Horton, Keswick and Honna Lee Wineries are all within 20 minutes drive, and Early Mountain is 30 minutes away.
Other Drive Times: Charlottesville (25 minutes); Culpeper (30 minutes); Monticello (35 minutes); Gordonsville or Orange (5 minutes); Montpelier (15 minutes); Richmond (60 minutes); D.C. (100 miles)
But why leave the farm? There is endless hiking on the farm, all the fish you can catch, fire-pit in the back yard (firewood supplied), horses to watch and pet, plenty of peace and quiet, and room for the kids (and the dog) to run.
