Cozy cottage; beautiful surroundings
My family and our friends (4 adults and 4 kids in total) had a great weekend here. The owners were very nice and helpful. We relaxed, hiked, enjoyed the Ciderworks, loved the apples, and took in the stars. There are a few takeout shops a very short drive away, and then we also drove into Charlottesville too. Such a nice getaway!

Lovely and convenient cottage!
My family LOVED this little house outside of Charlottesville, VA. It was perfect for three generations of our family to get together and visit while we visited our daughter at UVA. The house was lovely and comfortable, the setting gorgeous, the kitchen user-friendly, and the location very convenient to the town and University. We would definitely check it out again for future visits. Drawbacks were that the heat in the house was a bit inconsistent (but it evened out over time), the direct tv didn't work (or we couldn't figure it out), and the Wifi didn't work. But despite those things the family gave it an overall rating of a 7.5 and all would like to go back. Thanks!

Fair only 1 tv small no channels
Slipped twice on very slippery concrete and ruined an outfit, only one small tv and satellite did not function. Other than those things it was a neat old cottage. Thank you

Have a great summer!
This has become our holiday home since it is close to family! We love the quaint setting!
Bountiful supply of linens and paper products which is awesome! Washer and dryer available if needed. Kitchen needs a few updated items which I expect will be taken care of soon as the owners are quite attentive. Some rooms are hot, some are cold, but it is an old farmhouse so that is not really a surprise. The location is unbeatable and the beauty is magnificent. We always have a peaceful and memorable family gathering here. Many thanks!
