Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom (Sleeps 8), 3 Bath - Pet Friendly

Built in 1790 and beautifully restored, The Old Peddler's House has 2 bedrooms (sleeping 8), 3 full baths, a living/family room and dining room, a large kitchen with eating area and a laundry room with washer and dryer. There is a fireplace in every room with the living room fireplace usable. There are comfortable rockers on the front porch and a large deck with a dining table/chairs and Adirondack chairs overlooking a creek. The setting is peaceful, quiet and secluded, surrounded by woods and meadows and located at the end of a mile-long gravel lane.

The house was built in 1790, the same timeframe as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and Colonial Williamsburg. It was originally a humble single-room farmer's cabin with a fireplace and a narrow staircase to a second room above. In 1830, a mirror-image cabin was built adjoining it, doubling its size. A smaller rear "shed" addition was added in the early 1900s. The cabin has been lovingly restored to keep its historical features intact and tastefully add modern conveniences, including washer & dryer, dishwasher, television and Internet.

The Old Peddler's House is a scenic hour's drive from the Appalachian Trail, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the homes of 3 Founding Fathers/Presidents (Jefferson, Madison and Monroe) and many Civil War battlefields (Appomattox, Fredericksburg, Wilderness, Petersburg). It is a little over a mile from fishing, canoeing, kayaking and tubing on the scenic James River and is about 2.5 hours from Colonial Williamsburg. It is 40 minutes from Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. There are 6 wineries within an hour's drive, including Donald Trump's and Dave Matthew's on Carter's Mountain, along with apple picking. Several apple cider places, including Bold Rock Cider, are about 40 minutes west.

The cabin is part of a 250-acres working cattle farm, home to grass-fed cows, horses, free-range chickens and friendly cats and dogs. The farm has a swimming pond and a children's' fort built in a copse of trees overlooking a creek for kids to explore and enjoy.

Charming and Historic

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I absolutely loved our time at the Old Peddler's Home. The house is a cozy, charming, and historic place to stay. Tom and his wife are kind and helpful. We had a great time cooking, relaxing, and enjoying the surrounding area. I will definitely go back again!

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tom and Alicia for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage; we had a delightful weekend. We are particular about the cleanliness of the places we stay -- this place was immaculate! We usually hike or go sightseeing when we travel; but after reading the reviews we planned to spend more time on the property. We're glad we did; it was just the peaceful break we needed from our crazy schedules. And the stars -- so many stars! We spent hours on the front porch and back patio. Add the breakfast with your gift of fresh eggs -- an unbeatable weekend. Many thanks once again.

A beautifully restored historical home in a tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place to stay that was quiet, so we could unwind, spend family time and be close enough to area winery's, as well as, downtown Charlottesville and Scottsville. Tom greeted us with a dozen of fresh eggs and then took us to the cabin so he could show us around and provide some history of the home. We could tell immediately how much love and care was put into restoring the cabin.

It was so nice to spend the day sightseeing and return to such a comfortable home where we could relax. Scottsville had great places to eat, the local shop owners were warm and inviting and kayaking on the river was a great way to relax and cool off on a hot day.

Thanks to Tom for being such a great host. We will definitely put this house on our list of places to come back to.

Living History

  • 5 of 5

We -- a group of six -- stayed at this cabin for two nights. Another night would have been ideal. It is a one-of-a-kind place, and was great for our group of history lovers. The cabin has been lovingly and creatively restored so that you have the comforts of home, but still get a sense of all those who lived here in decades past. The showers tucked under the eaves were a little challenging for our tall guys, but everyone managed with good humor. the tankless water heater that kept the hot water plentiful was a real plus with a large group. The location is fairly isolated -- about 20 minutes from Scottsville -- so be sure you pack your coffee and any other necessities. We especially enjoyed all the birdsong, night noises and being able to see stars. We would love to visit again!
