About Rob Gardner

Wine guy with a passion for nature and beauty. A plant and soil scientist with a love of the outdoors and travel. Into old trees and all kinds of flowers and animals.

Love a good bottle of wine and a great meal.

Rob Gardner purchased this house in 2003

Why Rob Gardner chose Central Virginia

This is a uniquely beautiful place where one can have total privacy and incredible views of The Blue Ridge Mountains. Only 15 minutes from Shenandoah Nat'l Park, with its world class hiking, waterfalls and Skyline Drive, voted one of the 10 most beautiful in the USA. Also a place that will both appeal to and inspire writers and artists. Naturalists will love the mature trees and the variety of flora and fauna. Birders have great opportunities to see raptors and song birds up close. Hawks, herons and geese fly at eye level at times. Paragliders take off and glide to the north, while hot air balloons rise to the south. Monticello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is not only a short drive away, but also visible on clear days from the expansive deck. The house is quite comfortable, with beautiful furnishings throughout. The artwork extensive and high quality.

What makes this house unique

Amazing views and lots of nature all just 5 or so minutes from shopping and dining in Stanardsville. The inn is about a 30 minute drive from Monticello, UVA and downtown Charlottesville. Just 15-20 minutes from the Charlottesville airport and several wineries.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay at this property and couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. It's perched at the top of a large hill/mountain, so the views of the surrounding mountains and hills are beautiful. We had six adults and a dog with us for the extended weekend, and had more than enough space for all of us! The common rooms are large and spacious, yet have a cozy vibe at the same time. We spent the weekend playing board games by the large fire that easily warms the whole living room, making meals together in the kitchen, and enjoying the wineries/cideries/hiking a short drive from the property. There was nothing more perfect than coming home in the evening to a large fire, whirlpool tub in the master bath, and a hot tub on the back deck to cap off our day. Everything is as the photos suggest, if not nicer, as the walls are covered in gorgeous artwork. Rob, the owner, was more than accommodating throughout our stay. If you haven't yet decided on a place, here is your decision: book here now! I'm already dreaming of a return trip!

It was a beautiful spacious space perched higher than most surroundings offering spectacular views of the mountains and valleys in the region. Beautiful fireplace for quality family time.

Beautiful property and house

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful with an open floor plan and plenty of room for lounging and activities. The views are fantastic from both inside and outside the house.

The drive into Charlottesville as well as the multiple surrounding wineries was scenic and easy to navigate.

The owners were present to greet us upon our arrival, and made sure we had everything we could need. We will definitely be staying again!

The property is amazing. There were 6 of us and we loved it. We had plenty of room. Great social spaces, gorgeous view and location, in the top of the mountain in the middle of the forest! We had a wonderful fall weekend. The hut tub in the deck was the the cherry in the top of the pie! FANTASTIC PROPERTY WITH AN AMAZING VIEW!! We would love to come back.

Beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay (despite 5 days of rain and fog!). The house is spacious, with beautiful views from every weekend, and uniquely located, in lovely wooded surroundings. Great hikes in Shenandoah National Forest were only 15-20 minutes away and downtown Charlottesville was a 40-minute drive for access to great restaurants.
