Beautiful ... Quiet... Relaxing... spot!
Charming, serene, and well stocked! A peaceful get away to a beautiful place in Virginia!
Perfect remote home and beautiful setting
We had a wonderful visit with family at the Morris Orchard Farmhouse. It comfortably accommodated 5 adults, 2 children (ages 1 & 3), and 3 dogs. The pictures do not do this place justice and make the home look much smaller than it actually is. We were pleasantly surprised. It was well stocked with supplies - everything from toilet paper and paper towels to kitchen spices, coffee filters, and aluminum foil to extra toiletries! Both a Keurig option and regular pot for coffee too. The beds were very comfortable as well.
We spent one day exploring Natural Bridge Park. Another day we laid out a kiddie pool and slip n slide (hooked up to the house hose) and the kids played outside nearly all day. Then we explored Riverside Park in Lynchburg. Of course we picked blueberries & blackberries, and the owners were kind enough to give us a bag of peaches upon arrival. There are also a few goats and donkeys at the orchard which the kids enjoyed.
Overall a wonderful stay. Recommend for anybody looking for a break and comfortable stay!
We loved staying at The Orchard House!
The Orchard House had everything we needed and more for our stay during the 4th of July week! It was hot, but the air conditioned home was lovely. Our dogs also were grateful for the peace and quiet, away from loud fireworks.
Wil and Judy were very kind and welcoming despite my dogs being "barky" toward them. We enjoyed picking blueberries and blackberries and are looking forward to trying the apple butter we purchased at the orchard. The kids loved feeding the goats and donkeys. I loved that our purchase of goat chow will be a donation to the local animal shelter.
While in the area, we enjoyed several tourist attractions, including Appomattox, Monticello, Sharp Top Mountain (a hot hike, but well worth it), and Natural Bridge State Park and Caverns (our coolest location). It was also easy to visit relatives in Lynchburg, and we even hosted them for dinner at the Orchard House one evening. There was plenty of room!
We're grateful for the lovely accommodations and will return here if ever passing through Virginia again!
Peaceful country retreat
A wonderful short weekend stay in a gorgeous well equipped cabin. We will definitely be back! The cabin was perfect for the 7 of us (plus our dog) - 4 adults and 3 small children. I couldn't recommend this rental more highly. Judy gave us two bags of peaches when we arrived, which were delicious. Picking blackberries and blueberries was so much fun. The cabin had EVERYTHING we needed. Thank you for being such great host!
FANTASTIC!!! We will be back!
If you are looking for a peaceful, beautiful house in the middle of the country, this is it. My husband Jimmy and I came here to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. We brought our 3 small dogs. The house is PERFECT. Everything we could possibly need was provided, including anything we may have forgotten (shampoo, toothbrushes, etc). The kitchen was stocked for anything you could want to cook, even had baking supplies if you’re so inclined. We don’t have kids but I noticed that they’re stocked for them too - high chair, pack n play, etc. The scenery is breathtaking. I can’t stress that enough. The house is very spacious, immaculate, and comfortable. At night you can see every star in the sky. While this house is on a working orchard, we felt like we had 100% privacy. Down the drive there are goats and donkeys. Around the corner there are cows. There’s no better feeling than sitting on the front porch in the morning with a cup of coffee (also provided) and watching the bunnies hop by. Honestly, they have thought of everything. The Barnes family are so nice and so accommodating - they made us feel right at home. They left us freshly picked blueberries from the orchard and they were delicious.
We spent a lot of our time traveling - we checked out Downtown Lynchburg. We loved Natural Bridge - we did the hike, the caves and the safari drive. If you like animals, do not miss the safari drive! The Blue Ridge Parkway is nearby and stunning. I recommend Bootleggers restaurant in Lynchburg - that was the best burger I’ve ever had.
If I had to come up with a downside to the trip it would be that the house gets bad cell reception (at least for our AT&T phones). That is arguably a selling point, particularly when you’re on vacation and want to disconnect. WiFi worked just fine, so we weren’t completely off the grid.
We’re from CT, so we’re used to a lot more hustle and bustle. This was exactly what we needed - plenty nearby to keep us busy so we weren’t bored, plenty of serene scenery to relax in. I’m pretty sure we’ll be making the drive back to the farm next year. Thanks so much, Barnes Family, for a fantastic week!!!
