We live in Central VA and love having guests share in the wonderful lifestyle, if only for a weekend~!
My fiance and I had a wonderful getaway here at the Wolftown Farmette. We arrived on Thanksgiving and Jennifer had everything ready for us to self-check in and begin our weekend of complete relaxation. The house has everything you need, including a Keurig machine, wine bottle opener, mini fridge, and snacks. The fireplace is cozy, the bathtub amazing, and the front porch is a perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Early Mountain vineyards is 2 miles away and has live music and stays open until 8pm, so it's a great place to end your day of wine tasting. I highly recommend this spot and hope to come back soon!
We had a lovely time this past weekend in this great home. It was granparents day at Woodberry Forest and I brought my 83 year old mother up to spend time with my son a senior at WF.
I also had my 14 year old son who was up visiting WF. We left him at the farmette during grandparents day. He did not complain of being bored -- shocking! And Jennifer had left enough snacks that even he couldn't finish them off.
The house was spacious and very clean. I read on the porch in the mornings while my mom and son slept in.
Jennifer was the perfect mix of present and respectful of our privacy. She was quick to answer our text messages and made sure we had everything we needed.
We would definitely stay again!
My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. We wanted to get away from the DC area and relax. This is exactly that type of place. Jennifer was very accommodating and respected our privacy. All past reviews are pretty accurate. WiFi was weak to non-existent, winery is about a mile away and the setup is very comfortable and inviting. Our only real complaint is that the place had a bit of a stink bug problem. There were about 11 in the bedroom alone. They mainly kept to themselves, but can be a bit noisy at night if you're a light sleeper. Had one try to hitch a ride back home with us.
The space was clean and open for us to self-check in. Parking was convenient and easy to find with google maps and signage. A lovely welcome tray of goodies, a log for the fireplace, fabulous beds and linens, all so lovely for our weekend retreat. Very convenient location to area history, hiking, and vineyards. Friendly animals about. Jennifer left us to ourselves unless we needed something, and she was available by text or to pop over. The microwave and mini-fridge was helpful, as was the keurig. There was wi-fi, but it wasn't very strong, which was only difficult when we were trying to plan our days and map our journey. Otherwise there were physical maps around.
We really enjoyed staying at Jennifer's house and the King bed are huge!
Jennifer's farmette is so relaxing and quiet. Jennifer made us feel so welcome; she even left beer and water for us as we were headed to a beer festival after hiking Old Rag. We loved the proximity to both Charlottesville and Shenandoah trailheads (super close to 29). The Old Rag parking lot is only 30 minutes away. We spent two relaxing evenings in rocking chairs on the large porch.
If you are worried about privacy with this listing: don't! The areas are connected but we definitely felt like the guest area was totally private.
We had a great stay at the Wolftown Farmette. The photos are fairly accurate. What's missing is that there's a shower in the bathroom in addition to the fabulous tub. The guest portion of the house is the front part with the stone chimney in the main photo. The bed was very comfortable, and there were adequate pillows and linens, including lots of plush white towels for the bathroom. The window air conditioner was able to keep the area cool even during a heat wave.
The living room is nicely furnished with four leather club chairs and a long sofa. We loved the front porch rockers. The dining area has a dorm-size refrigerator, microwave, and Keurig. There's a supply of paper plates, cups, and disposable utensils. After reading previous reviews, we brought along some cereal bowls and real plates and utensils.
The country-side setting is very quiet. We enjoyed playing the games available in the living room trunk. There's no TV, but we did not miss it. We were able to access the WiFi on our laptops successfully, although it's not fast enough to stream.
During our stay, we toured James Monroe's and James Madison's houses, visited vineyards (including Early Mountain a mile up the road), hiked in the Shenandoah National Park, and went to antique stores.
Jennifer is a gracious host. We will definitely try to stay here again.
Loved the privacy and the location!
We had a great time staying at the Farmette. The house was very comfortable and well appointed. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the front porch with a bottle of wine Jennifer left for us. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone vacationing in the area!
Jennifer was in touch immediately to help us plan our trip. She provided us with complimentary beers that were great to sip on the beautiful front porch. This is a beautiful home and we enjoyed hearing about the history of it from Jennifer. Jennifer and her daughter made us feel like family and were around to give us tips on where to eat and where to hike. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend escape from D.C.
Jennifer is a wonderful person and an amazing cook. We love staying with her in her beautiful farmhouse. She always spoils us and we feel so much at home. This area of Virginia is stunning, convenient to Charlottesville and one of the most amazing wineries is a stone's throw away. I would highly recommend Jennifer and staying at her home.
