Chesley Creek Farm is situated on about 250 acres in the mountains of the Blue Ridge in Greene County, Virginia, about l8 miles NW of Charlottesville.

There are miles of hiking trails and old roads in the area, with impressive mountain and valley vistas, and close to Old Rag Mountain hiking area, as well as the Appalachian Trail.

There are presently 4 cottages/cabins on the property; Creek House, LaurelWood, Pines and Ridge.   All are similarly furnished.
