Blueberry Hill Farm vacation rental has all the charm of a Bed and Breakfast but with the privacy and leisure of a guest cottage, located midway between Lexington and Staunton in Virginia’s historic Shenandoah Valley. The suite is located in the upper part of our home with a private entrance via the upstairs porch. It includes a bedroom that sleeps three, kitchen, bathroom and year round sunroom. For those who wish the convenience, we offer a breakfast basket for an additional fee with items for breakfast on your own.

From the sunroom you have a tree-top view of the farm, gardens, pond and distant mountains. We invite you to enjoy the farm: hiking, row boating, picnicking, or just relaxing on the porch taking in the beauty and serenity of the countryside – and maybe a glimpse of the wildlife.

Or enjoy the many local attractions: visit numerous historic points of interest, take a scenic drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway, hike on nearby trails including the Appalachian Trail, visit neighboring Rockbridge Vineyard, or see a Shakespearean play at the Blackfriars Theater, or a show at the Virginia Horse Center.



on our farm

We invite you to enjoy our farm: Goats are the main attraction, especially in early spring when the kids are small and most amenable to human contact (and so cute!). We have fields of hay, alfalfa and sometimes corn or wheat. Walk through the woods to a large pond stocked with largemouth bass and catfish. Bring your gear. Guests report great fishing! Observe the wildlife, or just relax on the porch and enjoy the serenity of the countryside. Visit the links below to discover what else there is to explore in the area. We have information, directions and maps here for your use in planning your activities and we will be glad to help you in any other way we can.
