Such a happy time
Everything is great and thoughtful, the Millers family are so lovely and friendly and made a wonderful host. Especially fond of their beautiful horses Fay and Eliza. Definitely gonna come back!
Wonderful stay in a gorgeous area!
My boyfriend and I were only here for one night, but it was the perfect place from which to explore all that Loudon County has to offer. Cozy, comfortable accommodations on a beautiful farm. Lovely fire pit outside great for lounging and chatting. Would definitely return!
Private and Pleasurable.
The cottage was the ideal place for us to prepare for and attend a wedding in Purcellville. It was well-equipped and very comfortable. The hosts provided several supplies and many amenities to make our stay convenient, especially given the rural location. The setting is spectacular and Harley (one of the horses) and their dog were friendly. Our dogs enjoyed the chance to roam and explore.
Peaceful and beautiful
I enjoyed my stay in the Quaint little cottage on Bob and Dorian's homestead. The hosts were so welcoming and the location was beautiful and serene. I needed a weekend to decompress and this was the perfect place to do just that!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, Tamara! It was a pleasure to have you. Please come back anytime!
Dorian and Bob could not have been more welcoming. From the moment we arrived we felt as if we had found our perfect oasis. Waking up in the morning seeing their magnificent horses, and feeding them carrots; life just doesn't get any better. The cottage was immaculate, attention was given to every detail.
We have found our new getaway when we are visiting our daughter.
Thank you again for everything,
Cheryl and Doug
