Anthony LaPlaca purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Anthony LaPlaca chose Central Virginia

Our country home was renovated and remodeled to fit today's lifestyle. The area is close to city of Charlottesville but tucked in the hillside near Monticello near Ash Lawn Highland, Morven and numerous wineries and close to town of Scottsville along the historic James River with restaurants and shops.

What makes this cottage unique

A real 'home away from home.' Beautifully landscaped gardens and fenced in front yard of the cottage.

Wonderful location, beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. Everything you can possibly need is provided and close to everything. We brought out 16 month old who had a blast feeding the animals! Highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Karen and family, We are glad your weekend was great at our cottage and that your son was able to feed the animals. We hope you can venture our way to stay again at the cottage and farm in the near future. Our friends have a llama farm a few miles away and we can arrange for you and your family to visit the baby llamas next time. With kind regards, Tina & Anthony LaPlaca

Perfect getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed staying in this beautiful home.  It was perfect for our girls' weekend getaway!  There were so many very thoughtful touches within the home we couldn't count them all - all the things that make a stay so enjoyable and stress free.  Customer service was exceptional and the proximity to fun outings was the icing on the cake!  We look forward to staying at the Rolling Meade Cottage and Farm again very soon!

Scottsville cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the cottage. The grounds were beautiful and the house was very charming and comfortable. My only complaint if you have tmobile you will not have cell service. The house does have a land line which we used a lot. Loved the Animals.

Owner's Response: We are so glad your stay was enjoyable and comfortable. And very happy the weather cooperated. Unfortunately Charlottesville Virginia has only Verizon cell towers, which we hope others service providers will come into the area soon. The old fashioned land line is a necessity in the country. Hope you can stay with us again in the future.

Fabulous cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable home sits on a farm with two cute goats at your backyard (Cashew and Haze). The other animals are in the pasture, but they will come to you. The house is very comfy. The owners provide lots of spices in the kitchen, pots and pans, etc. It is so peaceful outside too. Very close to wineries. Visit the Belheim (owned by Dave Matthews) Winery. We were lucky to meet the owners, Tony and Tina, and they are lovely. We highly recommend a stay in this little place of heaven.

Perfect spot for a quiet retreat in the country!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here with 3 girlfriends for a weekend away and to visit local wineries. The cottage was in a perfect location for visiting Monticello wine trail, Jefferson's wine trail and Scottsville/Charlottesville. It had everything we needed for the weekend, was clean and very comfortable. Tony provided local information (restaurants, attractions, etc) as well as made sure we had a rundown of the cottage before our visit which was very helpful! We enjoyed visiting with the animals on the property too. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and if we are ever in the area again we will be happy to stay there again.

Great country retreat outside of Charlottesville

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming and very comfortable home located on a rural road between Charlottesville and Scottsville VA. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and the bathrooms very well appointed with comfortable towels etc. Everything was very clean and the owners made themselves available in case we needed anything (we didn't). All in all we were very happy with this property.
