“Cozy, quiet, romantic getaway”
Reviewed 21 January 2017 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I stayed here in 2013 for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience! The cottage setting is quiet, cozy, and beautifully surrounded by nature. The location is also perfect; it is setback just enough but yet still close to the surrounding wineries and restaurants. The cottage itself is cozy and quaint with a very comfortable bed, beautiful fireplace, and relaxing bathroom. We did not get to use the grounds very much due to weather and time constraints, but there was a cute little porch for coffee or wine, and the grounds looked perfect for a stroll or exploring. Anne was the perfect hostess, providing everything we needed from precise directions and great recommendations for places to go in the area to personalized breakfast options, coffee, snacks, and treats. She gave us just the right amount of attention and privacy. She also went out of her way to mail me a personal item I accidentally left behind which I greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend staying at the cottage for a personal or romantic getaway!

“A weekend to reconnect”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Where to begin?? Anne and Jim were the ultimate hosts. The cottage was simply perfect in every way. The property is beautiful and the ultimate setting to unwind. And while you feel completely secluded from the world while there, the conveniences of restaurants and activities are very close by. Anne goes out of her way to make sure you have every little thing you could possibly need. We cannot wait to return!!

“Idyllic cottage in gorgeous surroundings”
Reviewed 28 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This cottage is a real gem sets amid beautiful countryside. It is well decorated and is immaculate . The cottage has a patio with a table and chair plus two cocking chairs which is great to sit out on to have breakfast or a glass of wine thoughtfully provided by Anne the proprietor. Anne provides a good breakfast consisting of a choice of cereals,yogurt,muffins, orange juice and a big bowl of fresh fruit. Each evening she provides a little treat for sweet dreams! There is a lovely swimming pool which we managed to enjoy although the weAtherwas not always kind to us. There is nothing to complain about here everything is perfect for a quit ,relaxing holiday. The only downside was having to leave. Anne is very accommodating and doesn't have a check out time if no other guests are arriving. We stayed until 3.30pm enjoying the sun and pool. The bed in the cottage is really comfy and we slept well there. Don't miss this cottage- book it and you will be so pleased you did. Thank you Anne for spoiling us we had a great stay.

“Gorgeous cottage and property; incredible hospitality”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If you stay here you’re going to be spoiled for any other bed and breakfast. There are so many wonderful things about the cottage, where my husband and I spent a romantic weekend in August 2016. First, Anne is the consummate hostess. It was clear from the time of booking that she wanted to make sure every detail would exceed our expectations. Both my husband and I are very limited in what we like to eat, and we have almost no overlap between the two of us. As you might imagine, this makes going to a typical bed and breakfast difficult. But it was no problem with Anne—she is an absolute perfectionist when it comes to making sure guests have exactly what they like to eat—for the breakfast items, for the complimentary welcome snacks, and for the daily fresh baked goodies. For our welcome snack, I chose the cheese plate. She asks you in advance if there are any types of cheese you don’t like and then puts together a truly gourmet assortment—the type of cheeses you would find in a specialty store. She also asks about wine or beer preferences. For breakfast, she hunted down the exact type and flavor of yogurt that I wanted (which can be difficult to find), as well as baking my husband the exact type of bread that he loves. (I can’t believe he said her banana bread was as good as mine!). She asks in advance what type of milk you like for your coffee (there is a Keurig in the room with a selection of pods) and what type you want for your cereal. Her cereal assortment includes several types of regular cereal and 2 flavors of organic granola. She also asks about juice preferences. If that weren’t enough, she also gives you a large bowl with cherries and several types of fresh berries. And she makes you feel like it’s her pleasure to make you happy and comfortable. She attends to every detail—even the spoons in the drawer in the kitchen area are arranged in a pretty fan pattern. I loved the flexibility of being able to wake up and eat breakfast anytime I wanted (and while still wearing my pj’s).

The cottage itself is lovely—it’s very private because it has a separate entrance. It’s light, bright, airy, and beautifully decorated. There is a small table in the room with two chairs for eating breakfast, and a back patio with another table and chairs if you want to eat outside. Anne gives you a folder with restaurant recommendations, and she tells it like it is—both the good and the bad about local restaurants—so you know you’re getting the real story.

Anne stocks the bathroom with every toiletry you could imagine—different types of shampoos, lotions, bath salts, makeup remover, body wash. If you forgot it—don’t worry—it’s already there. Bath towels are super thick and fluffy. The grounds are gorgeous and they have a lovely pool (which we didn’t have a chance to try). Anne even mentioned there was insect repellent and lemonade in the pool house—she thinks of everything!

Definitely follow Anne’s directions rather than using your GPS or your phone’s map app. The location of the cottage was perfect for us—close enough to go to Charlottesville (25 minutes) and still go hiking on a trail off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We went to Monticello as well and used the tips Anne suggested to improve our visit.

So why didn't I give this 5 stars? Two reasons, neither of which are deal breakers. First, I really like having a full shower. The bathroom has a lovely huge bathtub with a handheld shower attachment, but no shower. This didn’t bother my husband at all, but I'm not the most coordinated person and it was difficult for me to wash my hair. Second, my husband is a very, very light sleeper and the bedroom thermostat makes a slight clicking noise as the AC cycles on and off. It didn’t bother me, but he had a hard time sleeping. I suspect there are very few people whom this would bother.

But those tiny issues aside, this is an amazing place to spend the weekend and I highly, highly recommend it. Anne is a wonderful hostess-- makes sure you have what you need down to the last detail and then gives you complete privacy. You will love the cottage!

Thank you so much, Amy--we truly appreciate your kind review and hope the inconveniences won't prevent you from enjoying another visit with us. I only wish the problems mentioned were solvable, but thermostats do emit light clicks during their cycles and there is just no room in the bath for a stand-alone shower! It was a pleasure to host you both.

“Beautiful, perfect little cottage for our anniversary celebration”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage is adorable, very clean, and very comfortable. Outstanding mattress and pillows! The owner, Ann, tidied up our room, made our bed, and made sure that we had clean towels each day. She filled the Brita water pitcher regularly, brought us fresh fruit, muffins, and sweet treats. The welcome package of wine and cheese was delicious, and was accompanied with long stemmed roses for our anniversary. She went out of her way in every aspect! The grounds have the most picturesque views. We enjoyed a hike to a picnic area by the stream, as well as a dip in the swimming pool. The owners, while available for anything we needed, also gave us utmost privacy. The location of the property is perfect- only a short drive to restaurants, hikes, wineries and breweries. And, a short 25 minutes to downtown Charlottlesville. It was just perfect! Can't wait to go back!
