This spacious farmhouse, built in 1898, has been tastefully restored and updated to accommodate modern living without sacrificing the charm of history. It is bright and airy, with open, spacious rooms and some extra smaller rooms just for fun or quiet times. The house has a calming, relaxing feel, with all the comforts of your own home. The farmhouse is a celebration of the richness of all things Virginia; its history, its vineyards, its fox hunts and the alluring charm of Old Virginia.

The house sits on 1 1/2 acres, with room to romp, yet conveniently located within five minutes of the historical town of Culpeper, a popular destination offering fine dining and shopping, antiques and local breweries.
The three bedrooms are upstairs, with two Kings and one Queen sized bed. Two Queen air mattresses are available (UPON REQUEST for a fee), which can be placed in the game room and the parlor.
The kitchen is magnificent and spacious and fully equipped for cooking. The setting sun casts a warm glow in the kitchen.
The front porch is a favorite space with cozy furniture, tucked away from the road by a row of trees and hedges. It is great place for morning coffee, afternoon sweet tea or evening wine with friends and family. The back patio is also a nice retreat, to enjoy the outdoors. The driveway is paved and offers plenty of parking.
We hope that you love our "Old Blue" house as much as we do. We have had many fun and memorable family gatherings here and look forward to more to come! Remember, Virginia is for lovers...of mountains, of wineries, of history, of finely bred horses, of great food, of getaways, of elegant old houses...
Entire home and yard. Behind the garage is our property, which goes on through the woods to the fence.
Most interaction is texting, and we most likely will not get to meet you in person, but if you need anything during your stay, let us know and we will do our best to help make your stay as comfortable as possible. We live nearby, so it's not difficult for us to come over to provide what you need.
The use of the air mattresses is not covered by your booking fee. If air mattresses are needed, even though the group has only 6 people or less, there is a charge of $10 per night, for each air mattress, which comes complete with bedding. If you need air mattresses with bedding, please submit a request before booking and do not use the instant booking feature, otherwise,we will request payment for the use of the air mattresses.
We do have shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion, so take note as you are packing.
Our driveway turns off of a two-lane paved road, so small children should be supervised.
Absolutely NO PETS! We don't mind small gatherings at the house. Parking is plentiful for guests and a few extra cars, but will not accomodate for large parties. We want to keep our few neighbors happy, so we ask that you be considerate of them and keep the outdoor noise level to a minimum after 10:00 p.m.
My husband and I are celebrating 40 years of marriage, have 6 adult children and are entering into the years of grand-parenting and retirement and seem to be busier now than ever! We live in Culpeper County and love it here. We have lived in several states, north and south, but love Virginia the best.
