The space

Oak Lawn, aka, Burford House, a Georgian '4-over-4' clapboard farmhouse (a classic example of Virginian antebellum architecture), was successfully nominated to the Virginia Landmark Register and the National Register of Historic Places in 2006 after extensive renovations. While the "Mansion House" was the center point of the 19th Century Village of Burford, VA, only Oak Lawn and its well house (two out of ten buildings) have survived. Upon the removal of wall materials during de-construction, it was determined the present structure was completely transformed and rebuilt about 1850 around an existing 18th century four room, two story house. Country living at its best but conveniently located between Lynchburg and Amherst, Virginia. Area colleges are a 15 minute drive from the house.

A beautiful home. Our family felt so at home in this large, roomy home. Our daughter got married at Winridge Manor and this home was the perfect location.

I can't say enough good things about this home. It is wonderful and has everything you need for a short weekend or longer stay. We saw deer, beautiful birds and all the flowers around the property are so nice. We hosted a rehearsal dinner for a wedding party and the home was a beautiful show place! Everything about it was perfect. The Wills have impeccable taste and have styled this home so lovingly. Everything from the squeaky pine floors to the amazing linens will make you feel at home. The beds are very comfortable, too! The communication and replies to all of my questions were answered quickly. My family and I highly recommend this property. It is truly fantastic.

Our Volunteers spent 24 hours on the gorgeous grounds of Oak Lawn. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left we felt love pouring out of the walls. The home is meticulous, welcoming, cozy, and spacious. We had beautiful communication from start to finish, even needing to call once for a silly internet issue. We highly recommend booking this property for family gatherings or any getaway. Thank you for generously sharing your home, Dick and Janet!

The hosts reached out to us before our arrival date with details about check in the house, which was very helpful. Our contact person was nearby and easy to contact, with good response time.

From pre-arrival to departure, Janet and Dick made us feel welcome. The home was very well appointed, with everything that we needed to have an enjoyable weekend. The history of the home, the amazing kitchen, comfortable beds - it was a must stay for anyone wanting a relaxing time in the western part of Virginia. Close to stores and Lynchburg, the location couldn't be better.

We are a fun loving couple who have fully renovated an 1850's farmhouse overlooking Tobacco Row Mountain in Amherst County, VA. We love to hike and explore the AT and Blue Ridge Parkway, both only 20 minutes away. We have begun a native plant garden and a wildflower meadow. Janet loves her birds as she sits and drinks her coffee or tea at the kitchen window. Dick is a fern fanatic and has planted many species in the garden. Since we are still both working in Richmond, VA and are hardly there , we began sharing Oak Lawn several years ago. We are pleased to offer our second home for others to enjoy should your travel destination include Lynchburg, Amherst, Liberty University, Lynchburg, Randolph or Sweet Briar Colleges, or central Virginia.
