COTTAGE, POOL, 300 SPECTACULAR ACRES OF BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS

Charlottesville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a luxurious cottage with pool about a 1.5 hour drive from Charlottesville on a 300 acre farm in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Perfect for a romantic weekend or family getaway.

The cottage consists of a huge window-filled kitchen/dining/living area, made with the finest materials. The hardwood floors are spectacular rustic oak. The kitchen has the latest appliances and wonderful red granite countertops. The living area has a gas fireplace with HDTV and DirecTV, and a comfortable queen-sized sofa bed.

It also includes a new bedroom with fireplace, big-screen TV and king-size bed with memory foam mattress.

The cottage sits alone in its own valley, and the farm has spectacular hills, meadows, and woods. It features soaring views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with over a mile of border with the beautiful George Washington National Forest.

Privacy and intimacy go along with the gorgeous landscape. You will be the only people on the farm. From the entire farm, no other houses are visible, despite the stunning views of 20 miles or more. Dozens of deer make their home on the farm and snack on the apple trees around the cottage. In summer there are cows munching away on the grass.

Recreational Equipment: The fishing pond (stocked with catfish, bass and perch) has a paddle boat. Fishing rods available. There is a golf cart and four mountain bikes. There are three kayaks for use on the nearby Cow Pasture River. The kayaks are a short 8' long, so they fit in most cars. Plus there are car racks available.

There's a pool right outside your door, via a rather whimsical bridge from the deck to a jumping platform. Do you dare?

To give you an idea of how large 300 acres is, it would take you about an hour to walk to the back of the farm. We gladly accept pets. The farm has always had pets, and they love it there.

The bathroom has marble floors, ceramic tiles, and a jetted tub with a view of the wilderness. The two-sided deck allows you to sip your morning coffee while looking out over the valley, watching the mist roll through.

Sleeping accommodations consist of the king-sized bed in the bedroom, a queen-sized sofa-bed, a self-inflating queen airbed, and three self-inflating twin airbeds (all 22' high), so you can mix and match as needed.

Wander the farm to your heart's delight. Swim to your hearts content. Fish in the pond. Check out a nearby river swimming hole right out of Tom Sawyer. Careen about on the mountain bikes or the golf cart. Go kayaking!

I grew up on the farm. My dad bought it from the Bright family, who homesteaded it about 150 years ago.

EXCEPTIONAL

  • 5 of 5
The design and location of this house is very well-thought-out. It is the ideal place to take a proper vacation - one where you can read surrounded by stunning scenery, where you can exercise and explore an expansive property, take a relaxing swim or a soak in the jacuzzi tub, hop in the paddle boat for a little cruise around the pond...there are many options for things to do. There are two grills, one on the porch and one down by the pool, so you can grill all of your meals easily, depending on where you want to dine. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked.The house is approx. 20 miles away from a service station, which is outstanding. We really felt like after our stay here, we were totally able to recharge and recreate ourselves. Working with Jim to rent the house was smooth sailing. I mean, easy peasy lemon squeezy. No cell phone service, but wi-fi worked beautifully. I almost wish there wasn't wi-fi! Ha! We were able to bring our dogs, who had the absolute time of their lives. Our dogs were enthralled by the cows, and they fetched the ball out of the pond until they passed out from exhaustion. We didn't have to bring towels, sheets, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, etc. All of those things were provided and Essie was as sweet as pie. We always bring grubby towels for our dogs, so that we don't muddy-up other peoples' nice towels, so dog owners should bring those of course! The only "issue" I had was that I couldn't find the hair dryer that was noted in the listing. And the only other slight bummer was the the bikes weren't functional. It wasn't a big deal for us, because we did a lot of our traversing on foot and via the golf cart, so we felt like we didn't miss out on much at all. We didn't want to leave, and this is one of those places that my husband and I will absolutely be coming back to stay in again. It was just perfect for us. Relaxation paired with adventure, with excellent accommodations. Thank you Jim. You nailed it. - Annabelle & Steve

WONDERFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing retreat! Its not just a cabin in the woods. The inside is done nicely. You can cook anything with the well stocked kitchen. You can unplug and relax and get to know your spouse again. We spent our 22nd anniversary here and it was awesome. Quite a bit to do, too! Exploring in the golf cart was fun! Sitting on the deck and listening to the birds and watching the hummingbirds feed was so peaceful! I have already recommended this place to all my friends!

GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is very nice for two people, we enjoyed the quietness and the scenery and the mountains. Great for hiking, photography, reading, writing, thinking, etc. We made a side trip to Hot Springs, the road/trip was out of a book and step back into time. Will return to see the seasons change.

A POSITIVELY PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The weekend stay at Ellen's Cottage was really great! All the logistics (booking, directions, meeting the caretaker) went off without a hitch and then it was just us and nature! The place itself was very modern in every aspect and we immediately felt right at home. We had no issues with anything and the place had everything we needed, especially in the kitchen (as other reviewers mentioned you don't need to bring anything except food items). We loved hiking the trails and even the morning walks down the road with the bubbling creek next to it were relaxing. Everything was perfect! Thank you! We will definitely be back...hopefully planned in accordance to a winter snowstorm:)

NEW YEAR'S EVE AMAZING STAY

New Year's Eve amazing stay
  • 5 of 5
We can't thank you all enough for an INCREDIBLE experience at Ellen's cottage! We absolutely loved it in everyway. Our dogs couldn't have been more comfortable in the house and on the property, the golf cart and acres barn/lake to explore were AWESOME - a highlight of our daily activities.

The house was so well appointed, not only the awesome brand new bedroom with awesome mattress, TV, and fireplace, but also the living room with fully functioning Wifi and DirecTv, the fully stocked kitchen and bathroom were great as well. The christmas decorations were also a very nice touch - along with the candles, fresh soap, clean sheets and linens, etc.

One of the nicest things was the solitude. 5 or 6 cars a day went down the frontage road, making the whole property feel really, really private - while still being incredibly well connected and appointed.
