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 Stanardsville

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.

Spacious home with lovely views of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beautiful views from all the rooms. We enjoyed the stone fireplace in the great room. Rob, the gracious owner, welcomed us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the house that he designed himself. Secluded and private this house is conveniently located near many points of interest.

Vistas Galore

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect weekend gathering spot for our group of 5 (old school friends converging for a reunion). We particularly loved the spacious common areas with beautiful vistas from every window. The nearby mountain winery (Early Mountain Vineyards) was a special treat too. I would rent this idyllic house again in a heartbeat, though next time I will rent it for longer than a mere weekend to enjoy its full amenities.

Fantastic Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend at this beautiful property! To say you can see for miles from the deck is an understatement!! The views are fabulous from so many vantage points and you feel as if you are living in the tree tops. The fireplace and living room are very comfortable and cozy. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the cookware, dishes and appliances you should need. Basic spices, oils available as was coffee, sugar. Home is very clean, all linens and towels provided, as well as toilet paper, even soap, shampoo and conditioner! The hot tub was awesome and, while in a private corner of the deck, has beautiful views as well. Charcoal grill available and owner provided both charcoal and wood for the fireplace. Rob met us upon arrival and showed us the house, explained how to work everything and even gave us a bottle of wine. The driveway is long and probably best maneuvered in an SUV or 4WD, but the privacy and views are worth it!! The house was perfect for two couples. We highly recommend this home and would definitely stay again!

Fabulous Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! What a private retreat, spectacular views! We saw the milkway one night. Close to Shenandoah National Park and only about 30 min drive to Monticello. Great for families, my kids had lots of space to play. Highly recommend for a get away! Rob was great and very easy to communicate with!
