The Orchard House:

Lovingston, VA Offered for sale at $779,000

The Orchard House, with 5 guest rooms (each with private bath) and owners quarters, is a picturesque Victorian farmhouse circa 1885 on nearly 14 acres with mountain views, one acre vineyard, pond, and meadows. Out buildings include the Apple Blossom Guest House circa 1900 with 3 guest rooms (each with private bath), living room and large country kitchen. Newly constructed large barn and/or workshop in 2008 with potential addition of horse stables and easy access to 6 acres of potential paddocks.

Both the main house 3696 square feet and guest house 1544 square feet have been carefully remodeled to maintain the original charm, while providing modern conveniences and comforts. The major renovations to the main house were completed in 2005 while additional improvements have been made each year. The guest house was renovated in 2008 with 100% all new Electrical and Plumbing.

The Orchard House has a uniquely large dining room providing successful business operations for retreats such as quilting, scrapbooking, bachelorette, and Christian retreats as well as local business meeting space.

This is a great lifestyle opportunity as a full time residence, income generating B&B, separate operating self serve guest house, 6 year old vineyard, or potential horse property.

Nestled in the core of the Virginia countryside, we are surrounded by the breath-taking Blue Ridge Mountains, located in Nelson County Virginia, yet only a short drive away from the arts & entertainment of downtown Charlottesville, Waynesboro, Staunton, Lynchburg as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway. Our guests enjoy wine tasting and touring the many wineries and vineyards of Central Virginia, skiing, hiking, fishing, antiquing, country drives, golfing or dining out.

Qualified Buyer:

We request that only serious qualified buyers contact us for information and/or to schedule a showing. Financial information will only be provided after a successful showing and the buyers ability to demonstrate a desire to move forward. A Non-Discloser document provided by seller must be signed for additional financial and operational information. Buyer will be required at that time to provide financial qualifications to make such a purchase.



Showing Instructions:

Call sellers at 434-263-7747 to schedule a showing. You must have an appointment as the home is currently operated as a B&B. No drive-thrus, please. Best showing times will typically be between 11am and 2pm, Sunday through Fridays are preferred. Since this is an operating business, rooms that are occupied will not be shown. Seller will be present at all times. Property is For Sale by Owner. No buyer or seller realtor commissions will be paid.

Property Options and Potentials:

The Main house was renovated with the idea that the house could be converted back into a single family resident. Some bathrooms may easily be removed or simply converted to large walk in closets if new owner desires.

Owner will provide constructions details and photos as part of closing. Should buyer continue it as a B&B, owner has prepared and will provide an operation manual. Owners could also be available for a negotiated consulting arrangement. 


The main house would make a great full time residence while the guest house could continue to be a source of income continuing to run it as a self-serve rental property.

Plans are available to add stables to the barn and up to 6 acres of paddocks for your own horses or to provide a needed boarding facility to this area. And estimated $10,000 to $20,000 of income is possible.

The approximately 1000 vines of Petit Manseng, owned by the innkeepers, are being leased to a local winery at this time. It currently produces between 2.5 and 3.5 tons of grapes.
