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 $70 (2 people) - $110 (family of 6) per night.
We have free Wi-Fi (satellite service for surfing but not streaming). We have a TV for playing movies from our classic DVD collection. 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 refrigerator, small stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker with cooking utensils and pots and pans.
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 use fragrance-free products in cleaning the house and linens. People with fragrance allergies should be comfortable here.
The only rules are no smoking and no pets.

Interaction with Guests
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.
While you are staying there it's your home. All we ask is that you not smoke and avoid using lots of fragrance products like scented candles, febreeze and air fresheners.
We had a pleasant stay at Vicki's guest house. It was a restful, snowy weekend and Vicki was available to answer our questions without making her presence known. She even took the time to contact us in advance to warn us about potentially snowy roads. The house itself is lovely and well equipped for self-catering. We enjoyed seeing a herd of deer take a thrilling walk on the frozen pond, which is probably a rare site in Virginia. I would strongly recommend to stay here. Thank you, Vicki!
Vicki went above and beyond in making us feel welcome and comfortable. She supplied us with directions to the local stores and restaurants, which was very helpful. The guest house was extremely clean and organized and the location was beautiful and peaceful. It was a wonderful place to spend my birthday and I hope to be back soon.
Vicki made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Her cottage was the perfect accommodation for our family of six. The cottage was well equipped, clean and inviting, and the perfect size for our needs. It was wonderful to come home to a quiet, peaceful setting after a full day of traveling and visiting with friends. This was our first experience with airbnb, and we couldn't have picked a better host and place to stay. We will definitely be back if we need to travel to the Richmond area again!
We love this place! Vicki give us a warm welcome and offer us lots of useful information. The handmade postcard is so beautiful. It has everything we need and my unties enjoy the white tea. We definitely like to stay again.
So welcoming. The place was gorgeous, surrounded by beautiful scenery. I had a wonderful experience!
