Live the Dream is an amazing option for groups looking for first rate and spacious accommodations in a beautiful setting. We spent a fun day relaxing at Barrel Oak Winery with extended family in the area for a wedding. A most enjoyable experience!

As soon as we returned home from Brian's we went on line to book our third stay. Brian's place is heaven on earth. The views relaxed me as soon as we walked in the door. This has become our annual late summer respite for my partner and our three dogs. We start with morning wal…

The estate is beautiful. There is charm, character and seemingly tons of good vibes emanating from within the walls of this home-on-the-hill overlooking the vineyards. Overall, the place is highly recommended. One important note that should not be overlooked is that complete …

Glad you enjoyed yourself Levi. You are always welcome back. Please note that my posting does state that i am in a separate wing of the house. Because this is a working farm with vineyards and winery, yes, i will have people coming and going outside the house - however, no one including myself ever enters the home when I have renters there. As you know, it is wholly your private space during your stay. Cheers!

If you are looking for a getaway with family/friends in VA wine country - look no further! We had an amazing weekend on Brian's property. We loved the HUGE kitchen, fire-pit, winery and stunning views of the mountains. 100% will return!

Despite having a beautiful property and spacious house right next to the winery, I would not return to this Airbnb or recommend any friends stay here. During our stay we did not hear much from Brian except for the two times he came outside to count our group while we drank wine a…

Response from Brian:
Julia - the terms and fees for you to have 6 guests in my home were posted prior to your booking. You booked for the base number and then you simply did not want to pay for the 6th guest which you failed to inform me you had brought. You even told me you were 5 people when you texted me as you were on the way. It is clear that you knew there was an additional fee for people beyond 5 and you simply were trying to mislead me on how many were staying. You have told me I was unfair. You say that you did not put additional use on the house with an extra guest. Of course you did and it is not just about linens used. It also is not about the capacity of my home. (I shake my head in astonishment (Website hidden by Airbnb) home can sleep up to 16 - so are you really suggesting that I should charge no more for 16 than I do for 5 guests? That is the same logic you are using to tell me I am wrong to charge for anyone beyond my base rental fee for 5 guests. Here is another way to look at it: If I posted my prices based upon 16 people staying here, you would never have had enough money to rent my home and you could never have been able to stay here. So yes, of course I rent the house at additional fees for additional people after my base rental fee.) Julia, everyone that comes through my door expects a clean and well-maintained home. You are paying per person for that and for the views and for the furnishings and the linens, and the maintenance, and the AC, and the yard maintenance, and for all the truly extraordinary amenities that I provide. My costs to have this home and land here for your group's pleasure are extraordinary. All I request in return is that you pay for your guests to stay here. You failed at this and you now complain. You amaze me and not in a good way. I have never in over 70 bookings had someone who tried to mislead me on the number of guests in order to save on the rental fees. You still have not paid for the extra person's stay in my home. Good luck in the future. Your sense of self privilege seems quite exaggerated and immature.
