customer review:

"I was traveling for business and am always looking for quiet and relaxing alternatives to the hotel grind. Sandy River Retreat far exceeded my expectations! If you're looking for quaint accommodations in a peaceful environment served up with a side of old-fashioned hospitality and outdoor fun, then Sandy River Retreat is for you. The cabin was spotless and had all the "fixings" to make it feel like home right away. With the farm and adventure park right on the property, as well as a myriad of fishing, state park and historic Farmville dining/entertainment options nearby, this alternative is a great one for couples, families or small groups desiring a new experience in a fresh and convenient environment. Thanks Candice and Mark, it was just what I needed!"


Our goal is to offer comfortable, clean and charming properties for your vacation. Kids are welcome, pets are welcome...this is a family business, and so we invite your family to enjoy our farm! 

We require 2 night minimum stays. If the calendar shows a single night available in between bookings, then we can offer a 1 night stay, but that will incur an additional $35.00 single night stay charge. Please call to reserve.

We have 3 log cabins, a cottage and 3 luxury "Glamping" Tipis to choose from. All properties have Tv, Wifi and heat and air. They a re fully furnished, and have amenities such as soaps, shampoo, conditioner, paper products, spices, oils, coffee, tea, creamer, sugar, laundry detergent, trash bags, and lighter fluid. Each property has a charcoal grill and picnic tables, hammock and porch furniture.


We welcome guests to walk the farm, meet the animals, collect eggs and see the veggie garden.

 The Adventure Park is on site, and there is a 20% discount off all activities for guests staying at Sandy River Retreat.  Sandy River Reservoir is just a minutes drive, where there is some of the best bass fishing in Virginia. We offer canoe and kayak rentals on the Reservoir..but you do need to book 24hrs in advance.

Our other business, is The Outdoor Adventure Store, located in Downtown Farmville offers bicycle rentals on High Bridge Trail State Park.
