The history, the ambiance, the peaceful and quite tranquil clean air of country living. The home features all the modern amenities one would expect without the bother of people coming and going from a hotel setting. This is as private a setting as you will find in the area.
Full Kitchen, hardwood floors, central location.
A beautiful stay from the minute you drive on to the property. The owners did a commendable job on updating the home to modern standards, but also keeping unique aspects of the original home. My favorite parts of the house were the porch and fireplaces. Would love to come back again!
This is perhaps our 5th stay here and we LOVE it every time. This year, however, we were greeted by BRAND NEW bathrooms and kitchen- much like the rest of the house they were redone with a simple elegance that fits with the historical beauty of the house. Well done! I can't wait to return!
The home is beautiful, the setting is beautiful. I would like to recommend that the linens be unscented though. To those of us with allergies, the strong floral scent was TOO much.
My husband and I loved the beautiful Cottage at Woodley and its magnificent scenery. Spending an extra day after my daughter's nearby wedding was a perfect ending to the whirlwind weekend
We were able to slow down and take some time for ourselves. Just sitting on the lovely screened porch listening to the cows and the swishing grasses was heaven. The beds were the best we've experienced at a hotel. We'd love to come back to this cozy and comfortable getaway to visit Montpelier and nearby wineries. The only thing we would have appreciated would have been more personal contact with the owner while we were there. His gruff father directed us to the cottage when we accidentally went to the main house next door.
This was absolutely the perfect spot for us to stay for our son's wedding at The Market at Grelen. Great location, very peaceful and well done but still had the big screen for game watching. Thank you!
Our family absolutely loves this cottage!!! It has everything we need. Beautiful setting, clean and comfortable, great location, fully stocked kitchen (with extras like a keurig). Can't wit to go back!
The main house is potentially available for weekend rentals for Woodberry Forest Graduation, or a destination wedding. Please call if you have an interest.
