Explore the history, beauty, and recreational opportunities of Central Virginia while staying in a charming Cape-style house in a subdivision a five minute drive from Thomas Jefferson's retreat, a microbrewery, grocery stores, farmer's market, and restaurants.
I need a non-smoker to walk/feed my two dogs twice a day. Let them lounge in the fenced yard while you read,nap, or work remotely on the rocking chair porch. Autumn is lovely in Virginia, with the leaves changing color. Using the leaf blower may be necessary to keep the yard clean. Indoor plants require watering weekly.
Nearby Lynchburg has its share of interesting historic sites, and a growing number of art and music venues and restaurants. It's a great recreational area: miles of bike/hike trails, mountain biking at a local park, and kayaking down the James River. There is also year-round skiing on artificial snow at a local university
Day trips can include a drive to Charlottesville, Appomattox where the Civil War ended, or the town of Bedford, home to the National D-Day Memorial and an old-fashioned drug store that highlights the story of the Bedford Boys during D-Day.
Weekend trips may be possible. Take the Lynchburg train to Washington, D.C., or drive to the Appalachian Trail for a hike with stupendous views. Explore the mountains of Southwestern Virginia and the Crooked Mile Road with its old-timey country music. Enjoy the Friday Night Jamboree at Floyd's country store.
The area offers many hidden gems and adventures. Or chill out with the dogs on the porch or while strolling the grounds of Jefferson's Poplar Forest.
