Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a luxurious cottage with pool about a 1.5 hour drive from Charlottesville on a 300 acre farm in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Perfect for a romantic weekend or family getaway.

The cottage consists of a huge window-filled kitchen/dining/living area. The hardwood floors are spectacular rustic oak. The kitchen has the latest appliances and red granite countertops. The living area has a gas fireplace with HDTV and DirectTV, and a comfortable queen-sized sofa bed.

The bedroom has a fireplace, big-screen TV and king-size bed with memory foam mattress.

The cottage sits alone in its own valley, and the farm has spectacular hills, meadows, and woods. It features soaring views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with over a mile of border with the beautiful George Washington National Forest.

Privacy and intimacy go along with the gorgeous landscape. You will be the only people on the farm. From the entire farm, no other houses are visible, despite the stunning views of 20 miles or more. Dozens of deer make their home on the farm and snack on the apple trees around the cottage. In summer there are cows munching away on the grass.

Recreational Equipment: The fishing pond (stocked with catfish, bass and perch) has a paddle boat. Fishing rods available. There is a golf cart and mountain bikes. There are 3 kayaks for use on the nearby Cow Pasture River. The kayaks are a short 8' long, so they fit in most cars. Plus there are car racks available.

There's a pool right outside your door, via a rather whimsical bridge from the deck to a jumping platform. Do you dare?

To give you an idea of how large 300 acres is, it would take you about an hour to walk to the back of the farm. We gladly accept pets. The farm has always had pets, and they love it there.

The bathroom has marble floors, ceramic tiles, and a jetted tub with a view of the wilderness. The two-sided deck allows you to sip your morning coffee while looking out over the valley, watching the mist roll through.

Sleeping accommodations consist of the king-sized bed in the bedroom, a queen-sized sofa-bed, a self-inflating queen airbed, and three self-inflating twin airbeds (all 22' high), so you can mix and match as needed.

Wander the farm to your heart's delight. Swim to your hearts content. Fish in the pond. Check out a nearby river swimming hole right out of Tom Sawyer. Careen about on the mountain bikes or the golf cart. Go kayaking!

Amazing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. The kids loved the pool and the golf cart was a wonderful addition to be able to explore the property on. We went fishing at the pond and caught bluegills over and over. There's no one around for miles. The hummingbirds are lovely. The house itself also had everything we needed.

We had an amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jim for sharing your beautiful home and property with us!! It was a treat to stay there and we really relaxed!! It was the perfect set up with our 3.5 yr old who could swim, go for walks with us and ride the golf cart without having to worry about how loud she was or losing her in crowds. She wanted to boat more, but the black flies were annoying...although there wasn't a mosquito anywhere, which was wonderful! We just loved the privacy!! So much privacy, which allowed us to really relax. It was a wonderful week. Thank you for your hospitality.

A wonderfully relaxing way to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I had a wonderful reunion trip to this beautiful house. We loved being away from the world and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. There were many little features that made our stay extra special. We loved the bluetooth speakers by the pool and all of the different coffee makers. The owners provided a great book of local places to check out. We took the golf cart to explore the property and there were so many beautiful views. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool and reading on the porch. My dog loved all of the open space. We can't wait to go back!
