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. 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

This place was absolutely perfect for our family getaway. The spaciousness and the provision of every need was so well thought out. We loved the porch, the hot tub and the closeness of the activities in town. We really enjoyed the 2 rooms with TV's so during the football games (those of us who aren't fans) had our escape room - haha! My sister (Cindy K) is not usually impressed with places, but she really liked this one and that made it so worth the cost. We will be back!

Thanks for all,
Oct 2016

Relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

A group of nine of us spent a long weekend here. The house is beautiful, well maintained, and full of comfy furniture. Carla is very accommodating, answers questions quickly, and was willing to allow a last minute change in our reservation. We hope to visit here again!

A Real Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Blue Hill the day before Christmas Eve to spend the holiday with our extended family. Carla provided the perfect setting for our annual family Christmas get-together by decorating her home inside and out, including a Christmas tree and stocking for our niece! What a perfect welcome! The fenced in doggie yard provided a safe place for our dog to roam and explore. It was the first time that she didn't have to stay home alone with a pet sitter over the holiday. What an awesome benefit to staying at Blue Hill! Everything you needed for a comfortable stay was provided by Carla including nice quality linens and plenty of them! The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and dining necessities; the only thing I had to bring from home (I live local!) was a blender and cheese grater :-) (They were probably in the kitchen, but I couldn't find them!). The only suggestion I have would be to provide a way to watch dvds in the living room using that very nice TV...the family room was just a little small for us to watch movies - but then, there were 9 of us! We were not able to stream a movie to watch in the living room which was not surprising given the beautiful but remote location (wifi was just fine for everything else you needed...) Our family absolutely loved our stay and the chance to be together in a lovely, roomy, real home. I should also mention that it was a breeze to plan this year's get together with Carla - she always replied quickly to my many questions as we were planning our stay...a real benefit to the person in charge of planning a family holiday get-together!

Charming old farm house nestled on a little hill top in a lovely bucolic setting.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in this old farm house with a lot of charm. Very private with few neighbors. We really got the peaceful getaway we were hoping for. Nice property to be outside, walk around, play fetch with dog. Another farm next door, and a working farm right across the road with roaming cows and horses. Was lovely to be surrounded by the bucolic setting. Was only a few minutes into Winchester, VA for shopping or a restaurant when we didn't want to cook.
