The Monroe House at Mulberry Springs is a historic two-story Colonial residence (c. 1750's) situated in a picturesque complex of barns, guest cottages, and outbuildings on 15.4 rolling acres. The perfect getaway for a family or pair of couples.
Mulberry Spring Farm dates back to Colonial Virginia. The Mainhouse is a “two over two” style farmhouse built on hand-hewn heart pine beams over a dry-laid foundation. The house was slated for demolition in the 1950's. Fortunately, a retired military couple who appreciated its significance, bought it and lovingly invested in major restorations. Two subsequent owners continued the restoration process both to the house and property. Numerous fruit trees were planted and a local stonemason was hired to rebuild the rock foundations and the 200-year old stone walls.
Mulberry Spring is a charming, unique home located in a mountainside neighborhood.
The layout of the house is spacious and comfortable. The first floor consists of a living room, dining room, library/TV room, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, laundry room, and full bath with a shower. There are two staircases to access the second floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and one full bath with a claw-foot tub with a hand-held shower head. For safety and structural reasons guest are not permitted to walk out onto the porch upstairs. Attics are also off limits.

Fabulous weekend with my team !
Spacious, yet intimate setting. Great kitchen facilities and true to the description. Great for friends and small team building events.
It was well equipped and a charming property
The house was off the main roads, but that was exactly what we wanted: a place to relax and reconnect with each other, yet close enough to make easy day trips. We went to Monticello; Montpelier; Charlottesville; a vineyard; a brewery. The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds comfortable. The setting is lovely and we enjoyed taking a walk through the fields. All four of us were delighted that we chose this property.
Beautiful house on a beautiful property
This lovely farmhouse was just perfect! It had everything we needed for a long weekend getaway. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need for preparing our meals (we couldn't find the crock pot, but not a big deal). We enjoyed relaxing on the big front porch in the evenings. The owners were right there if they were needed. Monticello was just a short and beautiful drive from the house. With all the great wineries, restaurants and shopping close-by, there was nothing else we needed.
Very nice large house, well kept and clean. BUT-- house is 40 minutes from Charlottesville and 25-30 minutes from Stanardsville, and on a dirt road. Once we discovered this, we got food and stayed in after dark. Might be a problem in bad weather and the winter.
Very confortable, colonial home, great location near Shenandoah
Beautiful home and location. Wonderful for families or group of friends. Great location for exploring Shenandoah and the wonderful Virginia's country side
