About the property

Stunning, private natural retreat on almost 15 acres. This property has it all from breathtaking water & garden views to thoughtful design & quality craftsmanship throughout. Gorgeous gardens, lovingly created & cared for, dot the landscape with a perfect mix of mature trees/woods and open fields. This lovely home features custom brick & woodwork, elevator, first floor master w/ private full bathroom and veranda, formal living & dining rooms, spacious family room, light filled sun room w/ walls of windows and easy access to patio & pool.

The outdoor heated saltwater pool is open mid April through the end of September, possibly earlier or later depending on weather. The pool temperature is set at 80 degrees F. The temperature can be increased to 85 for an additional $100 weekend/$150 week. This request must be made in advance.

Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this gorgeous home (although captivating) do not do this “estate” justice. The updated and luxurious kitchen and rooms were perfect for accommodating our large group of 16 ladies, Plenty of bathroom space, too. We arrived Thursday and stayed through Sunday, but I wish we had booked for at least one day longer. There is so much to do on the property from the giant pool, lake, kayaks, fire pit, hot tub, movie theater room, and more that you definitely want to make sure to plan to spend some time on the property. (We were away one whole day on a winery tour which was fantastic as well; FYI, the tour bus had no problem picking up and dropping off at this home either). The house was about 10 minutes from multiple grocery stores and food delivery places.

Carla and Seth were wonderful hosts- they made sure we had everything we needed and were quick to answer our questions about the house before we arrived. They even went out of the way to Return some forgotten items.

Stay here! You won’t regret it. You won’t want to leave.

Ivy Springs is a very beautful property that accommodated our entire family.

  • 5 of 5

The property had many extras that made our stay even more delightful. We had everything to entertain a large family from swimming, hot tub, kayaking, playing pool as well as many games and puzzles. Plenty of room for cooking and seating. Very clean. We truly enjoyed our time here and made many memories!

Great house for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

Great time at Ivy Springs...

Used the house to gather family and friends from across the country for UVA graduation 2017. Amy and Seth are GREAT hosts, working with us remotely to plan our stay. Given we had a rainy graduation weekend, we were fortunate to have this spacious location to comfortably host our family and friends inside. Grounds are picturesque and when the rain passed and the sun emerged, we were able to enjoy the beautiful grounds and pool.

The owners were great to work with; the offered suggestions and were always available for quick responses. The property is beautiful and the home is great for large groups! The kitchen and common area particularly provide a great area for meals and gatherings! Plenty of parking and space to spread out! Really enjoyed our stay!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home not far from town. There were 15 of us traveling to Charlottesville so this property was perfect for a large group. Fully stocked and owner was super flexible and accommodating. Parts of the house are still in the process of being renovated, but this didn't really affect our stay. A few lights, not main area lights, were not working, but I'm sure that will all be fixed once renovation is complete. The home was clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. Would definitely stay here again and look forward to seeing how it looks when it is completely finished. Awesome place to stay! Highly recommend it for a large group.
