Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was very clean well stocked with needs. On arriving a vase of fresh cut flowers were sitting on the table. Made you feel at home from the start.The beds were very comfortable and the only sounds were nature to sleep by. The morning brisk of fresh air was great to sit on the front porch and enjoy your tea or coffee and a magazine. If you enjoy wineries you are in luck. I can't find anything negative on this vacation spot.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late at the cottage and were welcomed with the lights on, flowers on the table and a lovely note. The cottage was wonderful...it was truly a home away from home. My family and I were there for a wedding that weekend at Ash-Highland which was very close to the property. We would highly recommend staying here!

Cozy cottage/beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5
Arriving at Quandary Cottage was like pulling up not at a rental, but at my sister's house. Every need had been considered and taken care of, lights were on, and flowers were on the table. Since it was graduation for the University of Virginia, the location was perfect - out of the crowd in downtown Charlottesville but close enough to take part in desiired activities, visit several vineyards, and still enjoy the beautiful property surrounding the cottage. Elizabeth and Matt went more than the extra mile; they made it possible for us to entertain our son's friends and to celebrate a big event for our family. We are ready to move in!

Cute and Charming!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Elizabeth's wonderful cottage for my good friend's bachelorette party and it fit 5 of us perfectly! We had a great time going to Trump Vineyards and Blenheim which were both about a mile away from the cottage. Elizabeth made sure we had everything that we needed and the kitchen was well stocked so we were able to make dinner one of the nights. We were able to get a cab to pick us up at the house and take us downtown where we had a wonderful dinner at Bellas, I highly recommend it to anyone who loves Italian food! I would recommend this property to anyone especially great for a girls weekend away!

Owner's Response: It was fantastic to have you and your friends visit the Cottage. I am so glad you enjoyed the wineries that are right around the corner. I have been to Bellas -- their grilled romaine salad with a gorgonzola dressing is amazing! I hope we see you all again soon. --- Elizabeth

Saved Our Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
When our reservations were unexpectedly cancelled, we scrambled to find accommodations. The host called back right away and was able to take us in the next day. The cottage was lovely...so quiet...adorable furnishings and screened back porch. We especially appreciated the air conditioning as the week was warm. Great Value....Highly Recommended!

Owner's Response: It was meant to be! We were so glad that we could help you with a last minute place to stay. The heat wave and the power outages from the big storm hit Virginia hard. We were happy to have your family in our cool and comfy cottage. I am glad you enjoyed your time in Charlottesville and that your vacation was saved. -- I hope we see you all again sometime soon.

Perfectly delightful!

  • 5 of 5
A delightful long week-end for UVA Final Exercises 2012, thanks in many ways to our stay at Quandary Cottage. Perfectly clean and extremely comfortable, the cottage is the most welcoming and well-equipped self-catering accommodation we have ever enjoyed. Family gatherings in the private garden were superb, a large round table with fresh table linens under a canopy of old trees created a lovelier setting, we thought, than any restaurant in Charlottesville… a shiny new grill and bottles of excellent wine from the nearby vineyard helped to ensure some wonderful meals. The fresh fragrances of the Virginia countryside, the serene setting, the music of the birds and crickets and cicadas, bike rides along the idyllic country roads, reading on the comfy porches …. we couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful setting for our family holiday/graduation celebrations. Thank you, Matt and Elizabeth, for making it possible to share your lovely corner of the Charlottesville area.

Owner's Response: We were thrilled to be able to host you and your family for such a wonderful weekend full of celebrations. I am glad the table and linens we brought to the Cottage helped make your family party special. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. I am so happy that you enjoyed being outside under the trees and that you were able to sneak in a bike ride along Blenheim Road.

Matt and I hope to see you all again very soon. Maybe there's another 'Hoo in the family!
