  • The most beautiful venue for an intimate and romantic wedding!

    "We rented Mt. Welby for our October 2013 wedding and all in all, it was a fabulous wedding despite the rainy weather. The grounds are so beautifully and lovingly maintained that we decided to hold the ceremony outside even though it had been raining all week. Luckily, the rain lightened up just before the ceremony and the gardens and woods in the background looked breathtaking, even mystical with the fog hanging low on the horizon. We moved the reception inside and the house was so cozy and comfortable enough for 50 people to hang out without feeling crowded. All our guests were charmed by the ambiance of Mount Welby and we are totally in love with the place and plan to go back often. Michel (the owner) was really easy to deal with and very accommodating and he made sure the house was ready for us, offering plenty of referrals for vendors and tips for making the most out of our stay. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a house with lots of character, yet providing modern comforts."

  • Really enjoyable stay

    "We recently stayed at Hobby House and really enjoyed our time there. The house includes a garage where you can park your car, although it is a tight space, it's free parking. The house comes as advertised and we found if anything, the pictures on the website didn't do it justice, which is unusual. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. There were plenty of bathrooms (3 for four people) and the house was lovingly restored. It was easy walking distance to a metro stop (about five minutes) and a close walk to old town Alexandria and its shops and restaurants was no more than a 10 minute walk away. It was an ideal location. The only complaints I had were minor. The bedrooms had doors but there was no privacy because there were open windows above each door, which I assume was for circulation. It was also a city house, so there was a lot of traffic noise and the third bedroom had a pullout sofa that wasn't all that comfortable, but overall we were very pleased with the location and would recommend it to anyone."

  • A Cozy Get Away

    "We stayed as a couple for a couple days in the pond suite in the wintertime. One beautiful day to hike Old Rag and a rainy day to visit the wineries and local life. It's a really nice get away. Practically everything you need is there. The animals are all around, chickens, goats, horses and all, making it quite peaceful. Enjoyed the fireplaces and the wood supply. A couple finer points, like almost everything you need is there, but then some things aren't like, dish washing liquid or sugar, which we didn't think to bring. And the chickens lay eggs every day but you have to buy them if you want them. For the overall cost per night, it would just be nice to be able to say everything is there that you need and you can almost say that. But it's 99% there so it's not a deal breaker, just nice touches that would be appreciated. Also a lot of rules about leaving. Do this, do that, start a load of towels or sheets. We left it very clean and did all that, but felt like usually you only do all this when staying with friends, and friends don't really charge you do they. But this is all sounding too negative when overall, you get a wonderful setting, beautiful views and great attractions close by. We had a wonderful time and are maybe more critical than we should be. To each there own. We would stay there again for sure."
