Property description

Once in a great while a property comes along that offers not only comfortable living but a fabulously functional Equestrian Facility, Historic Main House, and Guest House, which has its own unique and wonderful story to tell. Sited amid a vast pastoral landscape, Traveller’s Rest Farm has stood the test of time, welcoming travelers, family and friends throughout the ages. The original portion of the Guest House (circa 1760) was a stopping point for George Washington between Mt. Vernon and Williamsburg and still welcomes guests today as a successful Airbnb. The Manor House was constructed around 1847 by William Boulware, of stucco on brick and features a side hall plan which was popular during this time. Original pine floors, moldings, staircases, fireplaces and mantels remain intact. The 12’+ ceilings, in the Main House and large windows set the stage with beautiful ambient light and breathtaking views in every direction. Fully stocked farm pond with its own beautifully sited barn is the perfect vantage point for enjoying early morning sunrises. There is so much to see and do here at Traveller's Rest. A wonderful oasis and historic treasure with so much to offer. , Towering ancient Pecan, Chestnut, and Magnolia Trees abound here. A rolling bucolic landscape is framed by ancient boxwood which showcases well kept horse pastures, paddocks and lush fields in cultivation. Shown by appointment only. 20 minutes to hospitals, restaurants, shopping, golf, antiques, building supplies, feed stores and so much more. An Easy drive to The Northern Neck, Tappahannock, Richmond, Williamsburg and Fredericksburg.

This property is shown by appointment only with 48 hours notice required to show. As this is a working horse farm and also a successful airbnb, appointments will need to be scheduled. Do Not enter the driveway with out an appointment. Dogs on the premises. Fireplaces and Chimneys convey as is - where is.
