“Great stay despite some adversity”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We rented Westcott House for a weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were a party of 18 - 12 adults and 6 young children. The accommodation was spacious and ideal - ample bedrooms, ample bathrooms, great spaces for children and adults to play and a well equipped kitchen. We had a great time. Our rental was, however, over the coldest weekend of the winter with freezing temperatures and a major snow storm. The two physical problems we had were a frozen sewer line which meant we to restrict our water use and, on the morning we were leaving, a burst water pipe which started to flood the whole basement area. In both instances the staff responded quickly and tried to help. In the case of the burst pipe members of our party mopped up most of the water and moved furniture to minimize damage. The owners gave us a discount to compensate. Despite our problems we have no hesitation in recommending this as a great get-away for a big group.

“Family Time!”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Overall we had a very good time. House is beautiful. A couple of kinks when we first arrived. Hot tub was not working. Owner response was awesome. Problems with coffee makers. Other than the keurig the other two we had problems with. Decided that maybe the filters that were there were wrong size, ended up turning to the keurig. Need our coffee in the morning. For future visitors. Their are 3 bathrooms on the first floor, with 5 bedrooms. It would have been nice if they had a couple of powder rooms. One on each floor, top floor has two bathrooms with 1 real master bedroom and 2 king rooms. Again, the bathroom sitiuation was tough. Again a powder room (toilet and sink).would have been nice. Fireplace instructions were incorrect. It gives you written instructions next to the firplace. Found out that their was a black box in the fireplace that you just switch on. All these things can be resolved. Great house for a family reunion. We had a wonderful time. My grandson loved the playground. The fire pit and hot tub were awesome. Fun was had by all. Thanks for a great vacation!

Mary, thanks for your feedback.

Regarding the hot tub, unfortunately they sometimes go down and that happened right on the day you arrived. We were dealing with a previous fix and found another one. We did take care of it, and the hot tub was up and running about half way through your reservation. It is in good working order as of right now. I apologize that you missed out on using it for a few nights.

The fireplace instructions are actually correct - you are ONLY supposed to use the wall timer/switch. The problem is that previous guests (and this happens all the time) sometimes pull the fireplace screen aside and play with the knobs and switches on the burner itself. When they do that, it tends to go out or stop working and then it won't come back on until our staff comes in and sets it right again. When the pilot is properly on, the wall switch is the only thing you are supposed to interact with. I'm sorry for the confusion here.

Thanks for coming out and we hope to see you again soon!

Westcott House is clean, beautiful, very spacious and has many amenities. The kitchen is fully stocked and well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our family weekend and no one even wanted to leave the house!

“spacious stay in picturesque location”
Reviewed 30 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

the house is HUGE and very nice. We were so impressed with the wrap around decks, large kitchen, number of bedrooms, and large communal spaces to coalesce.

Our friends get together a couple times a year for a cabin trip and this place takes the cake. Not only was it easy to get to from DC but it was an absolute destination spot--we didn't want to leave! The bedrooms were pristine and there was no shortage of beds--lots of bunk beds--for everyone to sleep in. The firepit area was a real treat as well. We spent hours by the fire during our chilly November weekend trip. To boot there were many fireplaces (gas) throughout the cabin as well.

The house was very well kept and felt more like a resort than a cabin. Thank you to the owners for doing such a great job with the place. My only concerns were with the septic tank--it got a little potent and the number of bedrooms advertised--claimed 8 but there were only 7 and a nursery. Luckily the smell wasn't too much of a problem and we moved an extra bed from one of the other bedrooms into the nursery for more privacy.

Thank you!

Thanks for the feedback and review! There really are 8 bedrooms (in addition to the nursery) but one of the bedrooms is in a transitional state at the moment. The person who makes our furniture hasn't finished the beds for in there, so that last bedroom has been closed/locked until we get those in.

“When Can I Go Back?”

This cabin was as beautiful as advertised: amenities were amazing, the property was well maintained, and was well worth the price tag. I will suggest Westcott House to as many people as I can. Thanks for the great memories.

“this house is incredible for a large group weekend retreat”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This house was perfect for our weekend retreat. It is beautiful, the land is beautiful, it is close to the Shenandoah River and the skyline drive and the National Forest. The house had everything you need to have a really awesome and comfortable stay. All you really need to do is show up with your clothes and food and everything else is provided. It was a great weekend for us and a great stay. Thankful that you guys are there for groups like ours.
