                        A place to relax or be active. The host family respects your privacy though easily available to meet all your needs, from boots to firewood. Everything you need to cooking your favorite meals can be found in the kitchen. Comfortable bedding, living area with spectacular views all around.

                        The vacation experience was better than what we had expected. The owners decorated the house in Christmas lights, a beautiful tree and had chopped wood for the fire place. The home is absolutely charming and the farm is beautiful. We enjoyed petting the horses and walking the grounds. The beds were very comfortable and we felt completely at home. We will be visiting again for sure.

                        Charming weekend get-away. Agnes allows for privacy while also offering horse back riding and floral classes if interested. Her floral work can be seen throughout the cottage. Beautiful views at sunrise and sunset. My Husky dog did not want to leave!

                        What a wonderful stay at Travelers Rest over the Thanksgiving weekend .My wife and I along with our dog met up with my son and his wife and our two grandchildren. We hiked,played a family football game,met the horses and of course the wonderful family dogs. This was such a unique Thanksgiving. My son called last night and said this was the most memorable Thanksgiving ever! And we can't forget the multitalented Agnes She and her lovely family could not have been more accomodating.

                        Owner response: Dear Grim Family, I m so glad that Turkey turned iout ok with the challanging stove :) It was a pleasure to have you all here. Thanks again Agnes

                        My three sisters and I (coming from 4 different states) had a wonderful weekend together at Travelers Rest. The guest house was charming and spacious, with beautiful grounds for evening strolls and morning coffee, and a good central location for exploring Charlottesville and Richmond. Agnes was accommodating and gracious, with suggestions specific to our interests. We would love to return for another reunion.

                        My partner and I arrived in the evening of the 24th and were immediately enchanted by the property. Well maintained, the property is obviously cared for by loving hands. Agnes was attentive without being intrusive, she respected our desire for seclusion. The rental is filled with charm and detail, we enjoyed comparing it to our farmhouse though this propery was old by twice the age! Comfy beds, delightful antiques, scenic landscaping and the animals were friendly. Close to several attractions, we were able to have meals in town or use the well stock kitchen. Eventhough the trip was short (quick trip to visit the Poe Museum!) we enjoyed our time in the home and look forward to visiting it again... preferably longer next time.

                        Our stay at Traveler's Rest was delightful. The house is lovely and commodious, providing everything one needs for a restful stay or a jumping off point for the best Virginia has to offer. The owners couldn't have been nicer and it was a pleasure to meet them. The decor and grounds of the cottage were beautiful and peaceful. Although the location is rural (hence the beauty and peace), it was within easy driving distance of many must-see places, such as Monticello, Montpelier, and Mount Vernon. Returning to the cottage after these adventures made us feel like we were living a part of the history we had come to see. We highly recommend this unique and special property.

                        Owner response: It is wonderful meeting so many nice people,who are visiting our little peaceful place out of so many different reasons,

                        I can't say enough about this property, the owners and thier family.. the gorgeous landscape and the horses .. We took a riding lesson and it was SO much fun, It was absolutely a little heaven on earth .. PERFECT place for a outdoor wedding or function, Agnes has an amazing floral business right on site, with a class if you'd like to take one and she also offers horseback riding lessons, which we did .. and I couldn't be happier !! Wonderful experience, the owners daughter Charlotte also spent time with us during our lessons and she's just adorable !! We will definitely be back .. Thanks again !!
