My wife and I loaded up on a whim while the kids were all away and headed down to Charlottesville for 3 days of hiking, wineries, and breweries. Dick, the owner, took care of us like royalty. Last minute setup and booking, and he was so prepared for us that Leo even had his own welcome dog biscuits wrapped in ribbon waiting for him after the ride.
The cottage and experience cannot be described well enough; if you're looking to stay in the Charlottesville area you've reached the last listing you need to view. Read the reviews; they're all 5 stars only because we can't give 6. Everything is perfect. The house is ready to walk in and relax and you will. Perfect central location in a perfect serene mountain setting with a view from your private deck of beautiful Virginia mountains. Everything you need is already there. Didn't have time to go to the grocery store? Doesn't matter; coffee, filters and tea are already there to back you up until you can. Details? Check.
The owners should teach a class on how to run a guest cottage as long as they keep Afton Cottage available for us. :-) We've stayed in many places and none are better.
