This was a 55-acre farm, split in half to accommodate a bypass through Charlottesville, so the previous owners had to give up half the land, and actually moved the house down to the other half of the property! They had to build a land bridge to get to the new home site, so they turned the bridge into a dam and created a beautiful large swimming pond, complete with beach and gazebo. My wife Stephanie and I bought the property in early 2017 and have turned it into a private horse farm, adding pastures, a riding ring, and 6-stall barn. There are ~21 horses who live on the property. The property is unique in that you can hardly see another house from anywhere on the property and yet we are only 2 miles from Barracks Rd. Shopping Center, and 4 miles from the University of Virginia.

Site 5 - Ridgetop meadow
Beautiful Farm
Beautiful open land with privacy. Would like to come back in future, during summer, when the weather is nicer. First time to Charlottesville, VA and very nice place among the mountains.

Amazing! Great place to camp
Literally breath taking gorgeous property. Dogs are friendly and played great with my dog. Place is very well kept & clean so please make sure to not leave anything behind if you book here. Host was great & helpful. The site by the gazebo was my favorite but there’s a TON of privacy at any site you choose. Will be booking again in the future. Thanks again bob and family!

Site 2 - Base of dam tent site
Great spot to camp! Not quite as private as the other sites because it is closer to the house and pond, but still feels secluded. Loved being able to see the horses from our site. My dogs and I really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back!

Groovy little hideaway in town
This place was awesome! Minutes from town but surrounded by woods and horses. 😍 We stayed and car camped during a DMB weekend and it was perfect distance from the arena. The bathroom/house area may need a little more signage from the campsites but we figured it out after a little walking around. I loved every minute, would totally stay again. Thank you!
