The Home Place at Jarrell Farm

House - Entire home/apt · , Madison, VA 22727, United States

The Space

The Jarrell family Home Place was built at the turn of the last century. It has been recently renovated for comfort and relaxation. Perched on an open hill in Wolftown, quiet walks through pasture offer a 360 degree view of surrounding mountains in the daytime and a blanket of stars at night.

Accommodations are for up to 8 people, with three private bedrooms that offer king and twin beds and an additional day bed and trundle in the living room. One party books the entire house. Linens are provided. Additional lodging for up to 3 is available at our Brown Recluse Cabin, located in the woods nearby (also listed on this site.)
Guests are greeted with complimentary farm fresh eggs, goodies from the larder, and/or fresh seasonal pickings from one of the six Jarrell produce gardens. Guests can also purchase additional vegetables, eggs, jams and pickles from the Jarrell Farm. The kitchen is fully equipped. The living room has a TV, Blu-Ray DVD player and CD player/radio.

We have a nightly rate of $95.00 for up to two guests, and $45.00 for each additional person including walking children. Taxes are included. Monthly rates my vary based on number of guests. Additional housekeeping is available for stays over 5 days. Contact us for quotes & considerations.

A huge yard offers plenty of room for children to run and catch fire flies. It is a great spot for couples as well as small events such as family holidays, retreats, girls getaways, small wedding parties, small weddings and reunions, etc, or long term seasonal stays. There is ample parking.

Many of our guests visit Yoder's market & delicatessen where they can pick up organic and bulk foods, fresh local meats and home made baked goods and more.

Most of our guests enjoy solitude, taking walks on the farm, lounging on the porch, roasting marsh mellows, hiking, birding, stargazing, hunting, golfing at the nearby Greene County Golf Course, taking a dip in the Rapidan River, and spending an evening at the Early Mt. Winery.

This is an authentic working subsistence farm, with chickens, cattle and gardens. Guests are invited to participate in low risk farm activities primarily feeding chickens, collecting eggs, working the garden. We also offer workshops in a variety of topics that are listed on our Jarrell Farm website and available with advanced notice.

Shenandoah National Park is 4 miles down the road, where guests can hike. We're also centrally located between Charlottesville, Orange, Culpeper and Harrisonburg makes it ideal for day trips to regional attractions. Montpelier, Monticello, and Ash Lawn, the homes for three early American Presidents are within 45 minutes drive. Several colleges, Massenutten skiing and water park, and a plethora of wineries shops and farmers' markets also dot the countryside, with Steve and Jean Case's Early Mountain Winery 3.5 miles up the road. Madison boasts of at least 2 fine dining establishments with a full range of menus.

Guests can take a train from Culpeper to Washington, DC or drive in 2 hours. DC is a 2-hour drive, or guests who wish to take a day trip can drive 20 minutes to Culpeper and catch the train to Washington.

Situated near the Rapidan Wildlife Management area, check station, sporting goods supply, and processor makes it a perfect hunters' hostel during fall & winter. Hunters may or may not share the house with other hunting parties.

"Signals" are accessible, at the farm, but are illusive in nearby Wolftown, so those using GPS to find us need to bring a back-up set of directions.

Guests can arrive at their leisure. We will make every attempt to be there to greet you and familiarize you with the house if you provide us with your ETA. We also try to space out bookings so that guests can depart at their leisure. However, during peak seasons and holidays sometimes that isn't possible. The primary objective is relaxation, comfort, a total absence of pressure, even a sense of timelessness.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband, one year old daughter, and I stayed at James and Leri's wonderful country house in early April 2014 and we had an amazing time. The house itself is very cute and comfortable with many new features. The kitchen is great, with plenty of space to cook up a huge meal if desired. Outside, there is a wonderful grassy yard, plus cows and chickens right across the driveway. It is both picturesque and very relaxing. As hosts, James and Leri have thought of everything to make their guests feel at home, from the gift basket with fresh eggs, delicious homemade jam, and gingerbread pancake mix in the fridge to the extra toiletries and kitchen staples to maps of the region. Leri took us on a tour of the farm and their other properties, which was also fun. We would definitely recommend James and Leri's The Home Place to other AirBnBers, and we hope to be back ourselves sometime soon!

  • This is a great place for couples or families coming to unwind or to enjoy being together. There is ample space and quiet to "just be". You are also very close to a winery and within 1/2 hour to an hour of outdoor recreation in the Shenandoah Mountains, 3 presidential homes (Jefferson's Monticello, Madison's Montpelier, Monroe's AshLawn-Highland), Civil War battlefields, and UVA. The house is truly a home with a fully equipped kitchen, tons of towels and extra linens, and seating for eight. We made breakfast with Leri's fresh country eggs (the chickens are about 200 yards from the house) and her house blend gingerbread pancake mix.

  • I came with my family (7 adults), and we only stayed one night, but we would absolutely come back. It is amazing the number of stars that you can see in the sky without light pollution blocking them out. The house was cozy. The eggs and jam were delicious! A fiesty cow broke the fence to get to greener grass, so I met James very briefly when he came to repair it. We all really enjoyed the stay.

  • I thoroughly enjoying staying at Jarrell Farm. The cottage was very quaint and clean. The cottage is isolated so at night the only sounds you might hear are the mooing of one of their calves. My visit was during the winter, so they did not have fresh produce, but we were still able to have fresh eggs and jam. The stars outside the cottage were also very pretty(until the clouds came).

    I had a pretty decent 4G connection from Verizon at the cottage, but the bars were spotty else where in the town. My BF had T-mobile and did not have any service at all.

    Leri was very hospitable. Although Jarrell Farm only owns beef cows, when I asked if they happened to have cows I could milk, Leri was voluntarily asked around and found a place nearby so I could go to milk one.

    -The cottage runs off of well water.
    -The shower has good water pressure.
    -The kitchen has everything you need (silverware, dinningware, stove, pots, pans, dishwasher, cups, knives, cutting boards, mixing bowls, tongs...etc.)
    -The kitchen even has cast iron skillets!
    -The heat in the house is centralized

  • A nice little farmhouse with a beautiful view of the surrounding area.

    October 2013
  • 'We all had a great time. I went with my parents and Grandfather. Place was very nice. We enjoyed the peace, quiet and nature views. Garden vegetables were great, especially corn.
    Tour of the farm was very nice'.

  • Had a great stay at the Home Place. What beautiful countryside. The house wa perfect for us with everything we could possibly need and peaceful!

    James and Leri were friendly and accommodating. Loved our visit with Moonshine!

    Early Mountain Winery down the road is not to be missed!

    Would definitely return.

  • Staying at Leri, James’ (AND Moonshine)’s location has probably been the greatest experience we had on our trip. The house is lovely, Leri and James are extremely extremely nice people and have been very kind to us (=Julie & I) & descreet at the same time. The location was great!
    We saw: rabbits, deers, birds, cows, chickens, squirrels, snakes, worms, birds of prey, wild bears (!!) AND Moonshine :-) !!..... amongst others....
    We ate: fresh vegetables & fresh eggs from the farm, homemade marmelade, pancakes prepared with the gingerbread pancake mix, at the Early Mountain Vineyard.... just to name a few...
    We enjoyed: the peaceful location, the comfort of the house (nothing is missing in the kitchen), the area and all it has to offer....
    That was trully “the” HOME place at Jarrell Farm and all those reasons lead us to extend our stay....

  • We had an excellent stay at Jarrell Farm. Leri was responsive to emails, the fresh farm vegetables and eggs were fantastic, and close to Shenandoah trails and some beautiful vineyards. Highly recommended.

I am a retired farmer and excavator. I have a small herd of beef cattle and we have a few chickens for entertainment and eggs. We raise produce in several gardens, and can much of our food. I raised my family at this farm and have recently renovated it for guests. We would love to have you visit any time of the year. Stay for one night or as long as you wish. Couples are also welcome to check out the Brown Recluse cabin if the farm house is more than you need.
