Property Features


The drive to Crossfields, through the horse farms and countryside of Keswick, has often been cited as "one of the most scenic in America, " writes the New York Times. Crossfields' white fences invite guests in through the plantation gatehouse and along a landscape of rolling hills that hold the on-site farm.

The Crossfields main house comes into view after a bend in the road, revealing the red brick and white columns of distinctive Virginia colonial architecture. The front sunning deck and covered outdoor lounge offer views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Guests enjoy quiet, peacefulness, and privacy on the 23 acre estate.

Inside, Crossfields offers the best of Virginia hospitality. The living room, designed with a palette of pale blues and stunning parquet wood floors, is large and filled with light. A Steinway grand piano sits in the corner, ready to be played and enjoyed. Combined with the formal library and a dining room that seats 10 guests.

Guests at Crossfields often find that their favorite indoor spot may just be the Crossfields kitchen. The amenities for cooking and hosting are myriad, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf Gas six burner stove and oven, a warming oven, wine fridge, and an outdoor gas grill just outside the back door. A butler's door leads back into the dining room. Exposed wooden beams, wide-screen television, and gracefully-appointed seating areas create the ideal space for relaxing with friends and lingering over long conversations.

The second floor offers five bedrooms, each with its own private en-suite bathroom. With the finest mattresses and linens, a night's sleep at Crossfields is always a good one. The four guest bedrooms include two queen beds, one king bed and a fourth bedroom with a set of twin beds. The master bedroom holds a gorgeous four-poster king sized bed, a sitting area, mountain views, and a generous walk-in closet. The master bathroom includes his and hers sinks and an indulgent bathtub for relaxing at the end of the day.

The grounds at Crossfields come with their own delights. The *private outdoor swimming pool, located just outside the main house, sits on the well-manicured side lawn. Though the estate offers a bucolic setting, Crossfields is located only 15 minutes east of Charlottesville, and is a short drive to an Arnold Palmer golf course, Martha Jefferson Hospital, a spa, the area's best fine dining, and many local vineyards.

*Due to safety concerns and preservation of antiques, this property is not recommended for groups with small children.

The house was gorgeous, the views were gorgeous, and the it was very spacious. The rooms are beautiful decorated and there is a tone of space in them. It was only March so the only thing missing was the pool!

East and efficient communication.
This is our 2nd time at Crossfields. It's been the prefect spot for our extended family to gather for Woodberry Forest graduation weekend. About 30 min from campus. Boys brought their fishing rods this time and caught some brim in the pond. Great spaces to relax together and enjoy our time in Virginia's beautiful countryside.

It's been a pleasure working with stay charlottesville team members. Everyone was quick to answer and pleasant to work with.
The house itself is designed beautifully and it had plenty of room for everyone to enjoy during the stay. We loved the chef's kitchen and spent most of our time gathered in there. We loved exploring the woods in the back of the house and just taking walks on the property. Very tranquil and pretty to be outside of the city.

They were great to work with and very responsive. Tina met us at the house the day of check in for the tour and thereafter, my 2 year old daughter affectionately referred to the house at Tina's House. She has been asking to go back to Tina's House. :-)
The Crossfelds house was fabulous. We throughly enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen and playing out in the pool. The beds were comfortable. The views were breathtaking and there was ample room in the house. The house was also convenient to the Cedar Hill Cider Brewery as well as Keswick Winery, both of which we went to.

Consistently good service, whoever I happened to reach by phone.
Everything about this property was first rate. Would definitely stay here again. Great views. Nice pool. Well equipped. If I had to search for a suggestion it would be to add a shelf or small table in the bathrooms so guests have a place to set their things when working at the pedestal sinks.

Such a beautiful home with so much space! We had plenty of room for a group of 10 for a bachelorette weekend. The house was very comfortable with everything you could possibly need and it is so stylishly decorated. We easily went into Charlottesville for dinner and had a great time on an all day wine tour. Great location - feels very secluded. We would definitely recommend this property.

Everyone was extremely helpful both before and after. I had some questions the day I was arriving about whether the house had a blender and ironing board. Afterward, I wanted to know about the soap that was provided -- it smelled divine! I was able to get answers quickly about both!
This property is amazing. The dcor of the house is calm and peaceful. The kitchen is stocked with every tool you could possibly want. The mountain views were gorgeous. Every room in the house was a delight. Check in was quick and convenient.

This home is in a great location, is beautiful, and well appointed. The chef kitchen is fabulous! Loved everything about the home itself. Our only real complaint is the lack of necessary items such as paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, and enough bath towels to keep from doing laundry in four days.

Crossfields was amazing! set amidst the Blue Ridge Mountains and Monticello Wine Trail, this gorgeous, well equipped 5 bedroom estate is the perfect house for bringing the extended family together for a vineyard wedding or vacation! Each bedroom has it's own full bathroom. We were pleasantly surprised by an extra small bedroom off the laundry/garage wing which we dubbed t"the Maid's Quarters"! All you need to bring to this house is your family or friends, clothes, and groceries. The rest is all here!

Overall, the stay was excellent. The house was beautiful and very well set-up for entertaining. The kitchen was really phenomenal. The house was clean, the bedrooms all very nicely decorated. The internet situation was a bit lacking though. The router wasn't working and when we called to get help, the advice to restart the router/modem was not adequate. We decided to forego further phone-calls and just enjoy our weekend off, but for the money that was a little disappointing. Also, more as an FYI to future families: the pool has no shallow part at all so a bit difficult with small kids - bring floaties.

We gathered many old friends together to attend the Oregon v. Uva Football game this fall, with people flying in from all over for a long weekend. Crossfield Estate was simply perfect. I had expected it to be great but amidst other homes etc. I had no idea it would be such a breathtaking pastoral setting, private and at the same time expansive and breathtaking. The sunsets over the hills, enjoyed from the Crossfield verandas were among the top I've seen in my lifetime. Even with multiple couples and a few singletons, everyone felt like their bedroom and own bath was a master style room. Every room is stunningly appointed, well maintained, elegant, clean, I just cannot say more. Staying in the true master suite felt like I was in a dream. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with everything we needed for cooking amazing dinners, cocktail hours, breakfasts etc. All systems worked perfectly. The pool is well maintained and was fabulous. The grounds are impeccable. The home itself is graceful and fabulous. We had the time of our lives, and several of us are planning and plotting a return for a longer more leisurely vacation. We were easily able to travel to and from UVa for the game via taxi cabs so that we were safe on the road. Using our own cars to and from the grocery/liquor stores/restaurants etc. was a breeze. The Keswick area is so incredibly beautiful, and an easy 20 minute drive outside of Charlottesville. Our only complaint was having to leave! Driving away from such a wonderful home and experience was heartbreaking! Lease this amazing estate. You will be so very glad you did. I cannot say enough about it's beauty, style, comfort and elegance. A truly remarkable place!

We joined six other family members and stayed here to attend a wedding for a nephew. The eight of us had so much room and extra space we invited the mother and father of the groom over after the wedding for a relaxed "home cooked" dinner. The house is awesome, huge rooms, huge bedrooms, kitchen is to die for with all the upscale cooking pots and pans you need. I would stay here again in a minute. The house appears newly remodeled, very clean, and fully stocked with most of what you might need. I guess my only complaint would be the lack of water pressure. We had one of the guest rooms and there was clearly a lack of water flow from the sink and shower. However, there was plenty of hot water so we made do. I know one other couple mentioned it being a problem, but still nothing you can't live with for a week or so. Besides, having fresh "brown" eggs delivered in the AM made up for it.
