This glamping accommodation boasts an excellent location on a 584-acre horse and cattle farm in Gordonsville, Virginia, and is surrounded by breathtaking pastoral scenery. On-site, glampers have access to an array of activities from hiking and fishing to interacting with horses and playing croquet. Further afield, intrepid glampers can explore the miles and miles of hiking trails at Shenandoah National Park. Over 100 miles of the Appalachian Trail cut through the Park which provides an unforgettable experience in nature.

For something different, the James River in Richmond offers outdoor adventure in an urban setting, where glampers can raft or tube down the rapids, take a break, and then head to a downtown brewery or restaurant for a bite to eat. Furthermore, the best way to admire the natural beauty of central Virginia is by hot air balloon ride or a drive along the Skyline.

History buffs can walk in the footsteps of the early notables when they visit the Monticello home of Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, and the Montpelier home of James Madison, father of the Constitution.

Additional info

Note that dogs are not allowed in the tent. There is too much risk of damage to the tent itself that would not be repairable, and the host would rather not ask a guest to pay to replace a tent. They are rather expensive.
