About Carla Giacomangeli

I am a city dweller with a love of the country side as long as I have the option to get to the city if needed!

Love anything vintage and made in the USA.

Love all animals and gardening!

Best quote: We don't stop laughing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop laughing!

Carla Giacomangeli purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Carla Giacomangeli chose Shenandoah Valley

We choose Blue Hill because we feel in love with the house and the beautiful country setting - you can see the mountains and we are surrounded by 36 acres - 5 acres of fields and the rest is wooded and we are close to the Shenandoah River, Middleburg and Winchester. Blue Hill also offers us the opportunity to get away from the city but is close enough to DC that the the drive is relaxing and if we want to do something there are tons of options - so we can just relax and do nothing or we can plan a weekend of fun things to do!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Blue Hill is a unique home - the word comfy and inviting is the word most often used to describe what guests love about Blue Hill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Peaceful and beautiful spot for our 10th Anniversary! We enjoyed the birds and just being outside :).

The Farm market was a lot of fun too! Thank you for including the brochures!

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic girl's weekend here. There were plenty of bedrooms, towels, and blankets for everyone. We enjoyed the hot tub, the large living rooms, and spacious kitchen. Plenty of hot water to go around for us all to shower in a row!

Great place! Everything we needed for our large group

  • 5 of 5

We came for our daughters wedding and had a great time. It was so nice to have the family together in one place. The house was perfect and plenty of room for us. We enjoyed the hot tub and the room to have family meals together. We ended up having to bring our dog and it was so perfect for him !! Thanks!

Great party house

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for 9 of us who were in Clarke county for a wedding. The bedrooms and baths were comfortable and as represented.

Unfortunately it was rainy most of the time so couldn't take advantage of the wonderful porch, but the inside provided plenty of space to be together. The house has a great "feel" ,the location is perfect, we hope there will be another occasion to rent Blue Hill again.

Great Golf Trip House!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous stay at Blue Hill! Carla our host and Mark our property manager were on the ball when we had even the most minor of questions about where something was located or if we needed a refill or propane. He even brought us a little something extra from the store for the inconvenience that exceeded our expectations! We had a max of 10 guys that rotated in/out over the course of the 3 night stay. The house comfortably sleeps 8 guys in their own bed with a couple of comfortable couches and/or air beds filling out the sleeping arrangements. If you're a golfer thinking about a place to stay that can put your group of 8-12 ppl under one roof - you should consider this property. It's waaaay bigger than it appears in photos too - the downstairs is downright cavernous. We spend most of our time playing cards in the dining room or around the firepit. We never left the property except to golf.

For golf, we played Blue Ridge Shadows (15 min) and Shenandoah Valley (12 min) in Front Royal and the two courses at Rock Harbor (25 min) in Winchester. We are considering returning to the area again because of the great accommodations at Blue Hill and the abundance of other courses we could play on our next trip.

Thank you Carla and Mark for being such gracious hosts!

A wonderful location for gathering friends and family to celebrate a wedding. Carla, the hostess was so gracious and answered all questions in a timely manner. She added that extra touch that easily earned highest rankings
