Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Blueberry Hill Farm vacation suite is located midway between Staunton and Lexington, in a serene country setting yet convenient to I-81 and easily found. Described as 'informal but elegant' by a recent guest, the suite is in the upper part of our large home with a separate entrance via the upstairs porch which is for your private use. Our exceptional feature is the year-round sun room/sitting room where you have a wonderful tree-top view of the farm, gardens, pond, distant mountains, and at night the stars. The suite also includes an air-conditioned bedroom with an antique queen bed and a daybed, fully equipped kitchen, and bathroom with shower. Linens, towels, kitchenware, tableware, basic staples, coffee, tea, creamer and sweeteners are provided. You are free to use the outdoor gas grill and picnic table. A TV and DVD player are available. Children 12 and over are welcome. The suite is not suitable for pets.

We invite you to enjoy the farm: Wander through the woods and wildlife habitat around spring fed streams and two ponds. Go row boating on the larger pond or bring your gear and go fishing. It is stocked with large mouth bass and catfish. Guests report great fishing! Enjoy the flower gardens. Help yourself to fruits and vegetables, blueberries and wild berries in season. Bring your field glasses to watch birds, and other wildlife.

There is so much to do in this area! In Lexington take a horse drawn carriage tour of the historic town, or attend events at the Virginia Horse Center. In Staunton take in a play at the American Shakespeare Center’s Blackfriars Theater, or visit the Frontier Culture Museum. Nearby, go for a tour and tasting at Rockbridge Vineyard, hike mountain trails, bike along picturesque country roads, go 'antiquing', or take a scenic drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway (just 15 minutes away). We have information, directions and maps in the suite for your use in planning your activities and we will be glad to help you in any other way we can.

Serene beauty and Southern hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at Blueberry Hill Farm. The hosts thoughtfully supplied every amenity for a comfortable stay in the very private and well-equipped suite. The view from the sunroom and porch of the rolling hills and farmland with the Blue Ridge mountains in the distance was beautiful and peaceful. Although our friendly hosts were careful to protect our privacy, we found we had much in common and were blessed to share an extended conversation with them. We would highly recommend a stay at Blueberry Hill Farm and hope to return some day.

So peaceful you forget the rest of the world.

  • 5 of 5

While we spent time exploring Natural Bridge, Lexington and Staunton, we loved spending mornings in the sunroom having breakfast and our evenings watching the sunsets. We saw deer in the fields, spent time with the goats and enjoyed conversation with Jean and Frank. Such wonderful people. So glad we found this little bit of heaven to stay during our vacation!

Very relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Blueberry Hill Farm was a pleasant one. Jean and Frank were very pleasant and the farm atmostphere was very relaxing. We walked around the property to see all the goats and went to visit the dog. It was a different experience staying out of town on a farm like that and we would do it again if we are in the area. Thanks

Perfectly peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved staying on the farm. The upstairs apartment was a perfect getaway. The porch was our favorite place to just relax. The Debrot's were wonderful hosts. This was conveniently located to Waynesboro, Staunton and Lexington. Perfect for exploring the area.
