About the property

Cottage in the mountains, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 8

Welcome to our Cottage at Massies Mill at the base of the Priest Mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The cottage is close to hiking, Crabtree Falls, the Tye River, skiing, golf, wineries and breweries. There are orchards and farms close by, which are fun to visit for picking your own strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, apples, pumpkins and peaches as the seasons permit. Our cozy cottage sits on 2 private acres, ready for you to enjoy. Our cottage is tastefully decorated and boasts a complete kitchen, so dine in, or dine out and taste some of the delicious local food. The front porch and back deck are great places to relax and enjoy the views, and to share a good bottle of local wine. Find us on Facebook as well.

You will feel right at home in our cottage and settle in for a night of comfort after a day of activities. There are two bedrooms downstairs, one with with a queen bed and the other with a day bed with trundle bed. Upstairs is a suite; a bedroom with a queen bed, a sitting area, and bathroom. Additional sleeping available on the futon full-size bed in the Library/ TV room. The kitchen is complete, well-equipped and stocked for the chef in your group. The dining table has room for 8, with place settings for 6. There's satellite TV and internet.

We are close to whatever activity you might hope to find. We are 3 min from the Tye River, 10 min from the Appalachian Trail and hiking trail up the The Priest, and 15 min to Crabtree Falls and Meadow. Spy Rock, Blue Ridge Pkwy, Humpback Rocks, plus much more are just a little further up Crabtree Falls Hwy. The closest brewery is the Devil's Backbone 15 min away, with Wintergreen skiing, tubing, snowboarding and other activities up the mountain from there. The brewery count is at 7 within an easy drive. Wineries abound in this area, with at least 23 open for wine tasting.

If visiting other quaint towns and cities is on your agenda, the cottage is only 45 min to Charlottesville, Staunton, or Lexington.

There's river rafting and tubing on the James within 40 min.

There's at least 20 restaurants for dining out in this area, less than 30 min away; many are quite good.

About Karin C

I am a wife, mother, and speech pathologist who loves to travel with family and friends. We live in Virginia near Richmond and travel to the mountains for hiking and enjoyment of nature on a regular basis. When not traveling in these mountains, we enjoy travel to the beaches, California and anywhere exciting.

Karin C purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Karin C chose Roseland

We have taken weekend trips to the Blue Ridge Mountains over a hundred times with occasional longer trips. We've stayed at virtually every bed and breakfast in the area which lead us to getting our own place, making it quaint, cozy and cool so we and others can enjoy it. We learned a lot about what makes a place feel so inviting and charming and put what we learned into the Cottage at Massies Mill.

What makes this cottage unique

Relaxing on the front porch or the back deck is perfect. There's plenty of seating on the front porch to take in the mountain air, view the sites, and even have dinner there. The back deck is just as nice with a view of the countryside. You might notice the unusual and distinctive flooring and trim throughout the cottage; it came from the old Tye River Train Station that was nearby when the Virginia Blue Ridge Railway was in operation. Our cottage can sleep up to 8, but it's not too big just for two people; there's the upstairs suite (bedroom, sitting area and bathroom) as nice as a honeymoon suite. The kitchen is great for cooking with plenty of space, some scones mixes, other culinary supplies, and an island to give you that extra space for preparing a delicious meal. The cottage is nicely located with hiking to the left, dining, beer and wine to the right, and skiing and golf straight ahead.

Beautiful country road in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The house has everything you need. The porch has humming birds and all sorts of other birds. Really could not be nicer. Thank you.

All the comforts of home. And extra special touches throughout.

Plenty of room, beautifully decorated. Wonderful kitchen fully stocked. Owner definitely goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. The ONLY downside is the lack of strong WiFi especially if you need to use your phone or laptop for work or if you have teens/young adults. Absolutely loved it!!

My husband and I have stayed in many vacation rentals over the years, and his first comment after we arrived was "this is the best one yet". The house is clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable, and had everything we could possibly need during our stay. We loved exploring the area and visited several places recommended by Karin. The area is beautiful, and we will definitely visit again!
