About Ellen Pons
I live on my family's commercial thoroughbred nursery in Bel Air Maryland Country Life Farm, When not helping out in a myriad of ways with the farms. I work as a professional photographer and artist. I love spending time exploring nature over any social gathering. I spend more time and money shopping at home improvement stores than department stores. When I travel I like to park the car, read, paint and listen to good music,
Ellen Pons purchased this Apartment in 1957
Why Ellen Pons chose Crozier
Clover Hill is the farm my great aunt and uncle chose in 1957 to downsize as retirement loomed from his job at Farmers and Merchants bank. I purchased it from my siblings in 2008. Goochland is a lovely cedar tree dotted landscape where nature still rules. I love the quiet of the farm and the close proximity to Richmond / Ashland and Charlottesville. But I mostly just like staying on the farm with family friends and my dogs watching the day roll by from the porch of the Rosalie.

Great Virginia country get away!
Ellen has really put her own personal touches on this lovely country home! The serenity and peacefulness were just what we were looking for, while still being close enough to visit our family nearby in Richmond. If you take the time to read the written history of the farm and Ellen's Aunt Rosalie and Uncle James, you will appreciate the farm even more. Loved the wood ceiling and skylights on the upper floor to wake up to, as well as the river rock floor in the shower! Since the weather turned cold during our visit, we appreciated the warmth of the electric fireplace downstairs. The kitchen was well equipped, and renters could easily stock it with groceries and cook all meals there. We, however, only made breakfast each morning, as we met with family or took day trips everyday. Being rather remote, local restaurants were somewhat limited. The black Percheron horses on the farm were SO grand and interesting to watch. We also saw many white tail deer running across the acreage during our visit! Our 2 large dogs being able to travel with us made the rental choice easy. However, since we live in a Deed Restricted neighborhood in Florida and they are always walked on leash, I personally was uneasy letting them run free on the property. Thus, a small fenced in area among the acreage might be something Ellen should consider for future renters. We definitely plan a return visit in the future! 10/10, Ellen!
Beautiful and Bucolic
My extended family stayed in both the James and the Rosalie while we attended a wedding at a local event venue nearby. All members of our family enjoyed the house, the beautiful outdoors, and the chance to be together. We had a few minor issues in the Rosalie to which the owner responded to quickly, but the James was our primary spot for gathering and sharing meals. We really enjoyed the beautiful artwork and reading the stories and history of the home that were displayed for our reading pleausre.
Great place for a quite restful stay.
Wonderful stay with a great host. Loved the history of this home. Larger than anticipated, 2 story space.
Such a sweet place! My husband and I were recently in the vicinity for a family wedding. When I reached out to Ellen, she was immediately responsive and informative. By sheer luck, I’d happened upon the perfect place that neighbored the venue. Sold! What I wasn’t quite expecting was this gorgeous, expansive farm. Upon arrival, we were greeted and made to feel welcome. Everything pictured online is there. Very comfortable for two. Towels, bed linens, a fully stocked kitchen. But it’s the outside, the farm itself, that steals the show. It’s breathtaking! Our sweet old man poodle loved his freedom to explore. As did we. Do not miss sunrises. Or, for that matter, sunsets! But the stars.... oh, my, sitting on the deck gazing at the stars is worth the trip! The only thing that would’ve made that experience better would’ve been zero gravity chairs. (Then again, we may never have gone inside.😉�) Thank you, Ellen, for sharing your beautiful place with us. We’d love to come back for a longer stay with no commitments to steal our time. We wholeheartedly recommend!!😊�
My wife Christine and I rented the Rosalie because we were going to family wedding at Dover Hall. What a great find! It had everything we needed. Cozy and comfortable. We highly recommend!
It was so charming. My husband became sick sat. night and had to go home. He was in the hospital till wed. Sorry we could not stay longer. Will be back for sure.
I certainly hope you will come back for a more relaxing getaway . Between the traffic delays from New Jersey to Va on a Friday and taking Ill. I can't imagine you'd want to repeat any part of the visit. Speaks a lot to the charm of the Rosalie. You are certainly welcome back anytime, Wishing Mr T a speedy recovery. Sincerely Ellen
