About Amherst, Virginia

If you enjoy a home in the country with convenience to a city, Amherst is the place for you! An outdoorsman's dream only minutes from Lynchburg, Amherst offers the best of both worlds.

A location on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains provides many outdoor activities including hiking, boating and fishing. Water is abundant from the James River to the many streams originating from the Blue Ridge. (Click here to search for waterfront property in Amherst.) Take a ride on part of the Blue Ridge Parkway, a scenic drive which connects the Shenandoah National Park (near Waynesboro, Va) with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (near Cherokee, NC).

The nearby city of Lynchburg is chock full of things to do. Offering something for everyone, Lynchburg favorites include Amazement Square, an interactive children's museum; Cattle Annie's restaurant and entertainment venue; Lynchburg Hillcats minor league baseball; and plenty of shopping opportunities.

A town that's small but has it all, Amherst is a great place to live!
