We are an empty nester couple in our mid 60s. Dick is a retired Realtor after 42 years. Veegie is the Branch Office Administrator for a stock brokerage firm in Charlottesville.

We have 4 children and 4 grandchildren.

We moved to Batesville Rd in 1994.

Dick Bell purchased this cottage in 1996

We built Afton Cottage in 1996 as a rental unit. In October 2007 we decided to market it as a vacation home on line through VRBO. Since that time, we have had over 200 reservations by wonderful folks, many of whom have returned multiple times.

The great appeal of Afton Cottage is its location. It is located in a beautiful area and it is convenient to Charlottesville, Monticello, Staunton, & Wintergreen.

Close proximity to the Shenandoah National Park, Appalachian Trail and 10+ wineries and 3 breweries make it an ideal home-away-from-home for hikers,bikers, sightseers and wine and craft beer afficianados.

The privacy and tranquility afforded by the cottage make it a wonderful getaway for those seeking a place to merely relax and unwind. It is a favorite of writers.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Afton Cottage was a quiet and comfortable home away from home for three adults. It was larger than it appeared in the pictures. We used the cottage as a base for day trips to Richmond, Manassas, Appomattox, and Shenandoah National Park. Although the cabin was located in the country, we had easy access to main roads in the area.

GREAT AREA

  • 4 of 5
The cottage is in a fine location, both in terms of what is nearby and the setting of the actual building. Nelson county is a nice combination of wineries (friendly, accessible tasting rooms), farms and sccnic byways. The deck on the cottage is set amid a forest and the fireflies were amazing, both in numbers and brightness. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and had the sharpest knives of any place we have ever rented. One down side is a thunderstorm knocked out the power on our last night around 7 PM. This is certainly to be expected in VA in June, but the water went dry because electricity powers the well's pump. This meant that we couldn't flush the toilet and there is only one toilet and there were three adults in our group. We were leaving the next morning and had planned to do so at 9 AM, but when we woke at 6 AM and the power was still out, we couldn't make breakfast so we packed up and left around 7 AM. Later the owner phoned and said that his power (his house is on the property) had come on at 9:30 PM that previous evening and something about ours didn't because of a circuit breaker. I would have preferred the owner had checked on us when his power came on and instructed us where to look for this circuit breaker so that we could have had power for the last 12 hours of our stay.

Owner's Response: Tom, we are so sorry that you were inconvenienced by the power outage. As I indicated, we rarely have an outage. On the rare occasions when it does go out, it does not stay off for long. Our power came back on at 9:15, about 2 hours after it went out.
Since the cottage and our home are on the same trunk, the cottage power comes back on when ours does.
It turns out that the breaker at the top of the pole which serves the cottage was tripped. This has never happened before and was a freak occurrence. The power company showed up 20 minutes after I called them and power was restored immediately.
I should have checked on you when our power came back on. I apologize for not doing that.

LOVED THE AREA. AMAZING SECRET.

  • 5 of 5
Very pleasantly surprised. We needed a pet friendly place for 3 people and this was exactly what I was wanting. Quiet, cozy, everything you needed was at the cottage. We had the best time staying here on our visit to Monticello. We will be back!
