Fairview is a supremely remote, tranquil location, yet near lots of area attractions including the Appalachian Trail, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Virginia Wine Country, which offers outstanding music and entertainment venues at nearby wineries, breweries and music clubs within 30 minutes of the property.

The Blue Ridge is synonymous with beauty and tranquility, inspiring reflection and reconnections. The Central Virginia Piedmont region is well known for its rural character, architectural heritage and rich history. There is a kind of magic encircling Jefferson country, that extends from Albemarle into Amherst County...all the way from Monticello to Jefferson’s nearby estate of Poplar Forest.

Fairview is close to beautiful Crabtree Falls, over 15 nearby Wineries in Virginia, Virginia’s Wine and Brew Trail, several national forests, hiking trails, great biking trails, wonderful horseback riding in the mountains, and the nearby Tiny River has several fishing and swimming holes from which to choose.

Historic Charlottesville and Lynchburg are less than a 1-hour drive with proximity to 4 major colleges: University of Virginia, Randolph Macon, Liberty University and Washington-Lee.

Great dining is possible within 15 to 30 minutes of Fairview.  The Devil’s Backbone, offering award-winning handcrafted beer and excellent food fare & Basic Necessities for great wines, and a French bistro gourmet experience.
