Perfect location with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting the area for a 100th Birthday Celebration at Pippin Hill Farm. The location was perfect. We enjoyed coffee on the porch in the morning as well as a cocktail and conversation in the evenings, The Cottage was clean and well equipped. We loved the complimentary cider tasting and brought home cider to share with friends. We were a party of 8 and the house was a perfect size. Our group included 3 children under 9, and there was plenty of space outside for them to run and blow off steam without bothering anyone else. A nice touch are the few staples provided ( coffee, cream, sugar, condiments, paper towels etc) so you don't need to run right to the grocery store if you choose not to. We have rented several vacation homes and have not seen this in other rentals. We would absolutely stay at The Cottage again if we visit the Charlottesville area again.

It was everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable and in a lovely setting. It gave us a place to meet up with old friends in an area that was centrally located for us to visit the sights of the area with a place to settle in each evening for some relaxing conversation. It was all we hoped for.

Lovely Rural Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage was just perfect. We were three couples and two singles attending a wedding at Pippin Hill. The location was very convenient. The Cottage was very comfortable, very clean and well equipped. The cider tasting was a bonus. We would be happy to return!

Perfect weekend getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

This place is super cute with great views! Very clean and updated. It's in a great location, close to Pippin Hill Vineyard and is steps away from Albemarle Cidery! Myself and my 7 friends had an awesome time here over New Year's 2017. There was a room for each couple with wonderful accommodations. Cindy and Kathy were friendly and easy to get in touch with. I highly recommend this place and will probably be back next New Year's!
