Serenity and nature
13 sites · RVs, Tents40 acres · Elkwood, VAThe land was marched across by Civil War soldiers on ther way to Gettysburg. They were on their way from Brandy Station to cross the Rappahannock River at Kelly's Ford. Much later there were horses in the fields, a well and spring were hand dug, a pond created and slowly buildings were built and expanded, but no barns as it was not really farmed. This meant no chemicals have been used on the land for over 60 years and perhaps ever. The plan is to keep it organic, but do something with it. Ideas are welcome. Relic hunters have found confederate bullets, a belt buckle and an early 1900 Ford logo.Nearby Activities under 15 miles-April: Gnarley Hops and Barely Fest- craft beer festivalMay - October: Sundays Flying Circus stunt shows with Biplane rides offeredAugust: Hot Air Balloon FestSeptember: Hop N Hop Block party- music and BBQOctober: Culpeper Air Fest, free, 2 miles, stunts and precision flying, WWII planes, Harrier Jet and more. Day Trips: Washington DC by car, Amtrack or catch the VRE in Manassas, Oatfields Plantation; Skyline Drive; Monticello; Mt Vernon; Williamsburg; Frederick, MD, Harper's Ferry, WVCivil War Sites: Brandy Station and the Graffiti House, Wilderness, Chancellorsville, Cedar Mountain, Fredericksburg, Manassas, Ox Hill.
