Style Notes

Rustic retreat. Originally built in 1916, this residence has the charm of an old house with all the comforts of a contemporary home. Furniture is a mix of antique pieces and modern finds. The living room is a comfortable space with stripped wood floors, a colorful patterned rug and a cozy wood burning stove. We love the queensize sleigh bed and petrol-blue walls in the main bedroom, and the large outdoor space where kids can run and explore.

Heidi R.
Member since May 21, 2015
Married in June of 2012, Heidi and Randy have been working hard to create a farm full of gardens, fruit trees/bushes, and love. There are chickens, two horses, two cats, and two dogs who reside on the farm. In November of 2013 a little baby Reed, aka Eloise, was added to the mix. Currently all the produce that is grown is used in the home kitchen as well as shared with neighbors. The farm is not certified anything, but everything grown is done so with a conscience. There are no insecticides or other chemicals used – spray free. On the farm the earth is treated with respect. We love our farm, but we also love to travel. As a family we have lived in Costa Rica and England for extended periods as well as traveled to other parts of Europe and all over the USA. We enjoyed hosting families so much we bought another house in a nearby village. The Batesville House has been a fun project full of love. We would love to host your family at either home.

Charlottesville, Virginia

Charlottesville is a fun and vibrant college town, steeped in US history as well as culture and natural beauty. Check out Thomas Jefferson's home at Monticello, local farmers markets and pick your own produce farms, or spend the day wandering the trails of Shenandoah National Park. The kids can further explore at The Virginia Discovery Museum and parents can unwind after in one of the many breweries or wineries.
