Wonderful home, but beware

  • 3 of 5
This was our second time staying at this home. We loved it so much the first time that we decided to return. The house is still lovely and the pool is great, but there were some issues this time that we did not encounter on our first visit. For starters, even though the rate calendar showed one rate for summer weekends, we were charged much more per night without any explanation. When we brought it up to the owner, she simply stated that rate changes are temporary and not refundable...um what??? The second thing I would like to point out is that this listing states that the house sleeps 6. This is simply not true. On our last stay there was a pull out couch in addition to the two bedrooms, but this has since been replaced with a regular couch. My sister and her husband spent the weekend on two separate couches. Hardly seems reasonable at the price we paid per night. I really enjoyed the house and the surroundings, but I will not return for these reasons.

Great Weekend Stay!

My friends and I loved our weekend stay at this large, comfortable, and beautiful house. The surrounding areas were quiet and lovely. We were in town for a wedding and the house was perfect for us. Definitely recommended!

Perfect Home with Amazing View

  • 5 of 5
Had an amazing weekend stay. Everything from the owner to property manager, this stay was A+! The house was extremely clean and had everything we needed during out stay. We utilized the pool and outside as much as possible as the view from outside is amazing. It was as relaxing as you can get. Not to mention seeing the stars at night from horizon to horizon...Something I've never seen before.

We will be returning to stay here for our future trips! Thanks so much!

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5
This was the Girls Weekend we needed! Relaxing and beautiful home and surroundings. Close enough to C'ville and the wineries to create wonderful memories with great friends. Ruby was great as our arrival was somewhat delayed due to late flights and traffic out of Northern VA. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Lovely setting, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed this well-equipped country home. Plenty of space for two couples and would be perfect for a family as well. The manager, Ruby, was extremely accommodating and helpful. Only downside (maybe) was no cell service, but owners provide free landline.

We loved the two coffee houses and Crozet Pizza! Also highly recommend visiting Evrona Cheese in Orange County, where there are also wineries and the Madison house. Give them a call for a personal tour! And, of course, don't miss Monticello, Ash Lawn and the Albemarle Baking Company in Charlottesville. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Quiet Retreat but disappointed at the upkeep

  • 3 of 5
Our family was looking for a quiet getaway from our hectic lives before summer camps started. We chose this house because of the private pool and quiet location as well as being pet friendly. Upon arrival we were surprised at how out dated both the bathrooms were. They seemed like they were from the original building of the house and no updates had been made. We were also very surprised to see how overgrown all of the landscape was surrounding the house. The walkway from the back french doors to the pool was overgrown with shrubbery that we couldn't use that door until my husband cleared a pathway for us.
The pool was not cleaned when we got there which was disappointing to my children who were excited to jump into the pool right away. When we called the property manager we were told that it wouldn't be cleaned until Tuesday but she was able to get them to come and clean the pool the next day so we were able to go swimming our first full day there.

The shrubbery around the pool was very overgrown and the small wooden deck that housed the only two lounge chairs was splintered and pieces of wood were pulled up which made it unsafe for my children to go on. The lounge chairs were very dirty and since they were sitting up against so much overgrown bushes they attracted a large amount of bugs which made it not possible to sit on. We sat on the metal chairs for the week. There were cob webs on the bookshelves and layers of dust on the furniture that I cleaned off. The fireplace was not cleaned out from an old fire and was filled with ashes and an old burnt log. The TV would have been better in the main sitting room. We didn't use it at all since it was in the smallest room in the house and not very roomy to sit in. The grill was also very dirty.

With all of that said, the house is on a very peaceful piece of property. The sunrise over the mountains from the front bedroom every morning was breathtaking. We had very good weather the majority of the week and having the private pool was very beneficial for us. The kids played in the pool for hours. The property manager was very friendly and attentive. She even notified us when we left our house keys there and even drove out to meet us after we checked out so we didn't have to drive all the way back.

I don't see us returning only because the price that we paid we would have expected a little more in the house.
