Interaction with Guests
No, I will not be present - but am not far away if anything is needed and I go to the barn to feed the horses.
Love it for the wide open spaces, the views of the mountains, the proximity to the vineyards, historic sites and Charlottesville. Grocery store is just minutes away. Skyline Drive is just 20 minutes from here as well. Fantastic hiking in the Shenandoah Nat Park.
15 minutes to CHO airport. Taxis available there.

Dogs may not be left alone in the house unless they are in the mud room or crated. They can also have a big stall if you are going to be out all day. Riding lessons are available.

Airbnb does not have this in the charges and you may pay it when you come. Thank you!
Ample parking, privacy, and the farm is situated where the artillery was set in Battle of Jacks Shop 1863
The Farmhouse was a perfect getaway for a weekend in Shenandoah. It has plenty of charm and great outdoor space. Guests can use all of the amenities which are clean and well maintained. Fiona was very easy to work with, addressed all of our questions prior to arriving and bid us farewell on the last day. I would definitely return next year.
Fiona is a gracious host! Love this house and the scenery, especially the horses! Will be back as soon as possible!
From the moment we arrived at Fiona's amazing farmhouse we felt we were home. Fiona arrived after we started making dinner and she was just the best. So relaxed and friendly, making sure that we had everything we needed. We were all so pleased and impressed by her and her elegant large home, full of wonderful hunt country art, beautiful furnishings and the best outdoor yard ever with wonderful views. We all just never wanted to leave. Rochelle is a small town but only about a half hour to either Charlottesville or the Skyline drive. Thank you Fiona for letting us stay in your perfect home.
Fiona was an excellent host and her property was exactly as described. In fact the only surprises we had is that it was better than we expected.
We stayed a week and can say that we plan on coming back to Virginia as there are more things to do then we had time for.
Fiona was gracious and allowed us some extra guests for meals as it was for an after party celebration for my nieces wedding. The house was comfortable and several guests plan on looking Fiona up for future get togethers with their families.

About the Host, Fiona
I have travelled all over and know how I would love to just be "at home" when I arrive. No beds to make, no major unpacking of groceries - there is a shop nearby - and a cool drink on the terrace to relax and plan my tomorrows. Maybe a ride, maybe some golf, a hike by the water or take those water colors I see on the porch and get those creative juices flowing! Sometimes it is wonderful to look at the flower beds overflowing with every color - and know that you do not have to do the weeding! Come and enjoy, come and stay.
