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.

HOT TIME in a COOL SPOT in the Virginia Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

What a sensational week just outside of Charlottesville, VA overlooking the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains in the splendor of Rob's beautiful, comfortable, spacious, incredibly accommodating home! Rob's hospitality was endless - from installing a Wireless system so that we could work and watch movies, to the cooking amenities with plenty of pots/pans and two types of coffee pots, to the well stocked bathrooms and bedrooms, library, sitting areas, and a wrap-around porch with views for miles! The large hot tub beckoned! The 2.5 bathrooms are large and luxurious - Jacuzzi tub and separate shower in the Master! The bedrooms have panoramic views of the mountains and are comfortable for hosting large groups. Rob was a great "tour guide" sharing ideas for restaurants and sight seeing...and he was very flexible in assisting with our needs. Though summertime is "hot, hot, hot" - this was a cool place for a family gathering...we hope to return to see leaves change colors in the fall and to enjoy that gigantic fireplace during wintertime!

We've rented dozens of homes, this is among the VERY BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Truly beautiful, secluded, amazingly clean home, with incredible views, all just 12.5 miles from the main entrance to Skyline Drive (i.e., inside the park). This home really is something special. We did not meet Rob (this time--we will be back), but he happily texted with shopping and restaurant recommendations and was a pleasure to rent from.

Beautiful, comfortable home + great host = perfect mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with all the comforts of home and then some. Perfect spot for our family of four to enjoy a long weekend away from it all (the only sounds at night were the cattle and a dog here and there in the distance and the bubbling of the hot tub on the huge deck). Easy 30 minutes drive to great hiking at Shenendoah National Park, to the Massanutten Resort (indoor waterpark), and Grand Caverns, and much more. Loved the fact that there wasn't a TV out in the house, and the views from all the rooms and the deck were amazing. Great host--made everything easy, gave great recommendations (Jack's Shop Kitchen is the best) and directions to the house (long very hilly driveway to the house--kids loved the adventure). Just what we were looking for.

Gorgeous, relaxing, welcoming

  • 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!

Beautiful view, incredible fireplace, and a warm environment

  • 5 of 5

I visited here for a long weekend with friends and we all agreed that it was an amazing stay. The fireplace was roaring the entire weekend and the views are unparalleled from any other mountain home I've encountered. The home was clean and the bedrooms were all comfortable. In fact, each room had a stunning view of the mountains. We were lucky to have great, sunny (though very cold!) weather during our stay. The kitchen is fully stocked and there is seating both inside and outside with views of the mountains.

A welcome and unexpected gem was the Early Mountain Vineyard. It had live music, its own fire, wonderful food, and ample room for us to spread out and enjoy ourselves. It is a 'must visit' during your stay and only a 15 minute drive. The hikes nearby are also amazing, and just a short drive in the other direction from the house.

One point of clarification: as an earlier post mentioned, there is no wifi or television. You will be able to get service on your phone, but there is otherwise no internet. Luckily for us, we were up to our ears in board games and sunsets.

I highly recommend staying in this peaceful retreat.

Spectacular Views

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. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the holidays here. Rob was super friendly and accommodated usfor a very special time.
