The property is private and rural, yet located near a main thoroughfare and just a short distance from Interstate 64. Three wineries and four golf courses are found within minutes and its amenities are located less than a 30 minute drive from both Richmond and Williamsburg, an hour from Virginia Beach, and two hours from Washington D.C.


A stay at Moss Side offers you a rare look into what it would be like to live in a fine home during the mid-19th century. You’ll experience peace and tranquility in an authentic planter’s home with furnishing, decorations and architecture that transport you right back to the 1860s.


If you’re ready to disconnect from the daily grind in a beautiful and historic setting (with modern conveniences to keep you comfortable), book your stay at Moss Side. We offer a memorable destination for any traveler who enjoys being surrounded by history, nature and luxury. This two bedroom house comfortably sleeps four.


As was typical in 19th century homes, Moss Side features a detached building that today boasts a gourmet kitchen. Its modern appliances were installed to maintain the illusion of the 19th century as all have been disguised in old world cabinetry. Our kitchen produces simple meals and five-star dining experiences, both of which can be enjoyed in a rustic dining room upstairs or in the formal dining roomin the Manor. This historical gem features exposed ceiling beams and a working fireplace.  There are a total of six fireplaces found at Moss Side, all of which are working and gas-fueled, providing ambiance without the need for old-world labor.


Situated on 216 rural acres in historic New Kent County, visitors have access to a variety of countryside pleasures, including long walks, bird watching and picnics on the lawn. Tours of historic New Kent County are a delight with sites such as St. Peter’s Parish Church, where George and Martha Washington were married, and the James River Plantations in nearby Charles City County.


Moss Side is a suitable destination for many types of special events, from corporate seminars to weddings and parties. The adjoining Moss Side Cottage is also available for up to six guests.
