About the Property

Country Cottag, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Sleeping Loft with twins, 1 New Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Shade Tree cottage is a comfortable cottage located on a 22 acre farm in Historic Gordonsville, VA. Convenient to Keswick, UVA, Charlottesville, Barboursville, Wolftrap Farm Weddings, Castle Hill Cidery Weddings, Monticello and Montpelier. The Cottage is excellent for family get togethers, wedding guests who want an affordable, convenient and comfortable place to relax, and just a great place to wind down after the many historic activities and wine venues in the area. Nestled under 100+ year old trees on a shady knoll there's always a breeze from the Southwest Mountains here in the Piedmont region of Virginia. Birds galore call Shade Tree Cottage home and know that their feeders are always full and close by. Rabbits and deer also visit regularly and our resident ground hog can be spotted sunning himself in the pasture. Don't be surprised if the chickens come see you in the afternoon, they like to scratch around the bird feeders.
The Cottage has 2 Bedrooms, one with Queen bed and the other is a Double Bed (new) and a comfortable pull out sofa for extra sleeping options. With a sitting area this second bedroom doubles as a light filled side room for reading or lounging. An awesome sleeping loft (low ceiling) with comfy twin beds is overlooking the great room. A brand new bathroom with shower is located just off the main bedroom.

The large country kitchen is fully equipped and has a French door opening to the deck, which is great for morning coffee overlooking the pasture.
Laundry room is off the kitchen with stacked washer and dryer units.
Wireless Internet (booster from main house), TV, and strong Verizon cell signal.
If you need more space," The Little House" at Shade Tree Cottage may also be available for booking. It is located near the Cottage, has one queen bedroom, new bath, living room and eating area overlooking the covered porch and pasture.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Hello Tom and Midge here. We bought the farm in Gordonsville as a second home and to be close to our horses. Tom (a Richmond, VA city boy) loved the farm and Cottage so much that he didn't want to go home after spending weekends in Gordonsville, so we moved here in 2000. After retirement, we no longer have the Tennessee Walking horses, we built another house on the farm, and now our guests get to stay in the beautiful Shade Tree Cottage. Tom's new passion is raising chickens, so you will have farm fresh eggs during your visit.

Why the Owner Chose Gordonsville, VA, USA:
Gordonsville is a beautiful small town, a train goes over an overpass right in the middle of main street, the shops are busy and Restaurant Pomme is spectacular! Shade Tree Cottage is situated on a 5 acre knoll on the 22 acre farm. 100+ year old shade trees keep it cool in the summer and lots of squirrels, rabbits and deer call it home year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage is very private, but close to everything! UVA, Monticello, Montpelier, Wintergreen ski resort, award winning wineries, Civil War Museum and historic battlegrounds. Lots of local activities like horseback riding, apple and peach orchards, antiquing and farm visits. Did I mention that we are very close to lots of wedding venues; Wolftrap farm, Keswick Vineyards, Keswick Hall, Castle Hill Cidery, Barboursville Vineyards, Horton Vineyards, and at least 10 churches within 10 miles including the Historic Grace Episcopal? Shade Tree Cottage is perfect for the Bride/Groom's siblings and family to socialize in a private, affordable, comfortable and convenient place. If you need more space ask about the "Little House", a one bedroom cottage on the same property. Great for parents or grandparents or a couple with a baby.
