Quarry House on Quiet Entry Farm - Sleeps 6
This historic home (originally built in 1805) is located on a working horse farm just south of Charlottesville. It was recently restored in 2007 and updated to keep the historic, yet cozy cabin-esque feel, with all of the modern amenities. All of the wood used throughout the restoration (from kitchen cabinets to porch floor) is sourced right from Quiet Entry Farm and milled from the sawmill located up the hill from the house.
Quarry House is one level with 3 bedrooms consisting of two queen beds, a king bed and 2 full bathrooms. The "new" wing of the home contains a master king bedroom and queen bedroom with a shared full bath with walk-in shower splitting the two rooms. The other wing contains a queen bedroom with fireplace (decorative only) and a shared full bathroom with a walk in shower. Splitting the two wings is a fully stocked kitchen with all the cookware and appliances you'll need and a living room containing a fireplace, flat screen tv and ample seating to enjoy each other's company.
A screened-in porch, off of the living room, is a wonderful spot to enjoy your morning coffee (provided) or evening glass of wine while gazing out over the pond behind the house. The porch leads out to a fenced in backyard (perfect for your four legged friends) containing a fire pit with Adirondack chairs, well manicured lawn and beautiful gardens surrounding the house. A horseshoe pit is also available for use near the entrance of the house.
Guests have access to certain parts of the farm, including viewing of a soapstone quarry on the property, another pond for fishing and a 1500 tree truffle operation that will be in full production within 5 years.
Quarry House is the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy a true Virginia countryside experience.
