As the Virginia Fox Hunting Season is gearing up, we highlighted Nellysford Country Inn’s stables and fields in our new commercial that will be airing on Charlottesville’s NBC29. We offer luxury bed and breakfast lodging with boarding for your horse any day of the week. You can choose overnight boarding in either a paddock or a stall as an add to your overnight stay here at the inn. Large fields to exercise in and wooded trails can be accessed right off the property.
We were excited to welcome the cast and crew of the movie “Billy & Blaze”. The movie is based on the classic 1936 series by C. W. Anderson, about a boy who embarks on adventures after receiving a pony as a birthday gift.
The original book, Billy and Blaze, takes place in C. W. Anderson’s backyard. Stone fences, rolling hills, quaint villages and beautiful farms are all there, but finding these treasures 90 years later was difficult because many of the old barns and farmlands are gone. The author admired Virginia’s horse country in many of his writings, so the producers and the C. W. Anderson Estate decided to shoot the movie in Virginia, with segments of it being shot here at Nellysford Country Inn in the Fall of 2017.
Enjoy these photos taken during production, and learn more about the Billy and Blaze movie on their website.
When you stay at Nellysford Country Inn, you will experience a restful night’s sleep on one of our Savvy Rest Organic Mattresses. Savvy Rest organic mattresses are made right here in Virginia with natural Dunlop and Talalay latex. Their mattress casings are made of certified organic cotton and certified organic wool, a natural flame barrier. We love that these mattresses are both comfortable and safe. Savvy Rest values healthy living so their products never contain materials treated with chemical flame retardants, pesticides, or bleaches.
Our bedrooms are also furnished with Savvy Rest platform beds. Made of sustainably-sourced maple and poplar wood, Savvy Rest’s beds are durable, eco-friendly, and timeless. These zero-VOC platform beds are crafted in Charlottesville, Virginia by Savvy Rest’s own skilled woodworkers.
