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.

We loved this spot! Beautiful piece of land and very private, while still being close to everything Charlottesville has to offer. We’ll be back!

Bob is an incredibly gracious host. The farm is beautiful and the sites are spacious. We definitely felt privacy. The proximity to Charlottesville and wineries, breweries, trails, etc. can’t be beat!

We had such a great time camping on Bob’s land! Such a beautiful setting and very close to hiking trails, vineyards, breweries and Charlottesville. The owners of the property were quite welcoming as well. We highly recommend and will hopefully be able to visit again!

Site 6 - Remote tent site
What an idyllic spot and a perfect weekend! Bob and his family (and pups) were lovely and the land was gorgeous. It was a shady and private spot to camp, couldn’t be more perfect. The little pond, which we learned is actually a spring, was so fun and they had some kayaks and canoes to use. It was easy to get to and very close to Cville but we barely heard any noise. Can’t wait to come back again!
