You will start to relax as soon as you drive down the driveway. You might see deer grazing outside your bedroom window in the morning and evening and there are lots of birds to watch. A morning walk by the pond is a great way to start your day.
Enjoy a peaceful night with privacy in a very safe neighborhood whether you are visiting the area or just passing through. This cute little guest house is next to but separate from the main house. You have your own entrance, kitchenette, full bath, large bedroom with a queen size bed, walk in closet and an upstairs loft with 4 twin beds all covered with hand made quilts. The rate is based on the number people (including children) staying and ranges from $60 (2 people) - $100 (family of 6) per night.
There’s no TV, but you have free wi-fi internet access. Cell phone service can be spotty here (especially if you are not on Verizon) but we can provide you with a house phone for US calls (no international calls).
The kitchen has a small refrigerator, small stove, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. It's perfect for simple breakfast and lunch but not great for big meals.
We provide clean linens, tea and coffee. We can stock the kitchen with your needs for an extra charge that we can discuss before your arrival. Grocery stores are nearby (5 – 6 miles) if you want to bring your own supplies. We do not use any fragranced products in cleaning the house or the linens. People with fragrance allergies should be comfortable here.
The only rules are no smoking and no pets.

You will enjoy your own private house but we are close by if you need anything. Enjoy a walk around the property and you are welcome to drop a fishing line in the pond for some catch-and-release fishing.
We are here if you need us but you can also be as alone and private as you wish.
You will be able to relax in a very quiet neighborhood of 10 acre lots. There's one road through the neighborhood and it's a nice walk to a beautiful lake.
It's as very rural area so you will need a car to get around.
Vicki's little guest cottage in the gentle swells of Virginia's spring landscape by the babble of the South Anna River couldn't have been more pin-perfect a stay for me. The house is immaculate, fully appointed, and decorated with Vicki's artworks in quilting. Beautiful. We enjoyed a morning chat in the sun and Vicki shared her extensive fabric arts with me- an unexpected inspirational treat!
Thanks, Chris and Vicki! It was so nice to go in your Guest House again!
My wife and I were headed to Richmond for a conference and lucky enough to leave the kids with Grandma for a couple days. We really enjoyed having this wonderful little spot to get away from it all. Vicki and Chris are very kind and gracious hosts and the cabin is very meticulously kept. We especially appreciate that they don't use any strong scents in the cabin, as my wife tends to get migraines from strong odors (even pleasant ones). Our many thanks to them for such a pleasant and relaxing stay. We hope to be back again sometime!
Our stay in Vicki's place has been magical. The house was clean, neat and spacious for us to stay (5 people). As far as the house is concerned, it is perfect. But for me, the way Vicki greet us and spent some time welcoming and saying goodbye is more than anything you'd expect. Simple things you hardly find in people nowadays. Thanks Vicki!
"Awesome" would not be enough to sum up our experience staying with Vicki in her guest house. It was really spacious and super fancy with two floors: one HUGE master bedroom and four beds upstair. The house is stocked with goodies like boardgames, books, snacks and a really nice kitchen area. Oh and the bathroom was amazing too. Totally recommend staying here.
I took my parents on a two week road trip starting in NYC, through VA, NC, SC, GA all the way to Key West, then back up through the Smoky Mountains. We stayed at quite a few properties along the way, and Vicki's guest house was among my parents' favorite!
Vicki was able to provide same day availability, sent us detailed (and amazing) directions, and left the light on for our really late arrival (past midnight).
The guest house was incredibly cute, comfortable, and so very clean. The guest house itself is spacious, clean and comfortable. Vicki has amazing taste in decorating the inside of the guest house, and we spent an hour exploring and ooh-ing and aah-ing over the thoughtful details such as the wall hangings, gorgeous quilts, and the oh-so-adorable loft with 4 single beds.
The kitchen was very well stocked and I had no problems whipping up an amazing brunch for us the following morning, right after we took a walk around the property to explore the lake behind the house, and the gurgling brook/river right behind the main house. Despite the time of the year and the trees mostly leaf-less, it was still an extremely serene and beautiful setting and helped us start our road trip on a very relaxed and stressfree note.
We only stayed one night and wished we could stay a full week. I really hope to be back in the summer - my friends live in DC (I am in NYC), so I'm hoping we can arrange for a small group trek out to the Welsh's guest house to destress and recharge!

We had a great stay. The house is in a beautiful area and it's in very good condition. The location was also convenient; it's far enough out of the city to be quiet, but just a short drive to downtown Richmond and Ashland. We enjoyed talking to Vicki and her husband and would be happy to stay here again.
This lovely guesthouse is a real gem and worth trying just for the lovely taste of the tap water, which brings delicious water up from a deep well, ice cold and sweeter than any bottled water you've ever tasted.
There is a master bedroom and bath downstairs and a generous upstairs which would be great fun for children, (or extra guests of any kind) and is equipped with games for them, and books for the adults. Vicki is a lovely hostess and superb conversationalist, while also giving a lovely amount of privacy and space to the guest. I'd definitely stay here again.
We cannot recommend this airbnb enough. The setting is idyllic and the accommodation is better than any hotel. Vicki and Chris are really friendly but leave you alone to enjoy your time in their great guest house.
This place is so amazing!!! It's a super cozy but spacious guest house with all the necessities. It's set in the beautiful Virginia countryside and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. Vicki was a really gracious host, and you can tell she puts a lot of care and attention into everything she does. Highly recommend it!!!
