Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Montfair Resort Farm offers eco-friendly vacation retreat cabins, close to Charlottesville, Virginia and The Blue Ridge Parkway. We’re just fifteen minutes from the town of Crozet, and forty minutes from Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s magnificent estate.

Come stay with us for a relaxing vacation or great getaway in our restful atmosphere, with fresh, clean mountain air, over a hundred acres of serene woodlands and open fields at the base of Pasture Fence Mountain.

We offer cozy A-frame and cedar timber frame cottages looking over a peaceful, six acre lake – the ideal blend of comfort, simplicity, and natural beauty.

Our cottages are fully air conditioned, and have modern appliances and gas heaters. The kitchens are completely stocked with dishes, silverware, linens & towels, and there’s also organic coffee & tea.

Just outside your front door, you’ll find walking and hiking trails for fishing, hiking, bird watching and biking.

Montfair Resort Farm’s rustic lodge is perfect for weddings, gatherings, reunions, and eco-friendly celebrations. We offer a memorable, magical location for private, relaxed events.

Montfair is also an ideal base for exploring the Charlottesville area, including the University of Virginia, the historic Downtown Mall, Skyline Drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and much more. There are also a number of organic farms and wineries close by.

Montfair Resort Farm became a popular camping spot in the 1960’s – guests were drawn by our beautiful, rolling, wooded foothills on what was once a part of the Brown Family plantation called Mount Fair. The Brown family owned more than 10,000 acres in the area.

Now in the middle of a revitalization, we are planning to become a certified eco-lodge. We enjoy refurbishing our buildings from the 1960’s, preserving the noncommercial nature of the landscape, and planting native plant species. We want to provide an eco-friendly lodging alternative and a showcase for the rich natural and cultural heritage of Virginia.

We offer mountain bikes for guest use – take them out on a variety of trails, or enjoy fishing and canoeing on our local lake and ponds.

There’s also great bird watching and other wildlife, including black bear, Blue Heron or busy beaver.

Montfair is pet-friendly – bring your dogs along to wander our fields and wooded trails.

Richmond, Virginia - Google Maps

from Google Maps

With terrain varying from the mountains to the coast, Virginia offers an array of fall colors for leaf-peepers. But before or after your drive along one of the state’s many scenic byways, consider a fix of Southern city living with a visit to the state capital, Richmond. Located along Interstate 95, it’s an easy stopping-off point. And whether you like the outdoors, art or history, there’s plenty to do here – and you don’t have to spend a dime.

CANAL WALK/BROWN’S ISLAND/BELLE ISLE

Find out why Outside magazine readers voted Richmond the nation’s most livable river town in 2012 by taking in the scenic James River. Canal Walk runs more than a mile (1.6 kilometers) through downtown Richmond along the river and the banks of the city’s canals, with monuments and exhibits along the way highlighting Richmond history.

With various access points around the city, Canal Walk eventually leads to Brown’s Island, a popular venue for concerts and festivals located between the canals and the river. It has a series of walking trails and bridges, including one that takes you to the middle of the river. Just steps away, a pedestrian bridge suspended under the Lee Bridge takes visitors over the river to Belle Isle, where you’ll find locals exploring the 54-acre (29-hectare) island and resting on its rocky shores.
