My wife and I celebrated our 11th anniversary at this wonderful property and we loved it! The Carriage House was exactly as the description says, very spacious and very well appointed. Everything we needed was provided and the owners were very helpful with information about the area. We
overslept both mornings due to the peacefulness and the
great bed! They even allowed us bring our dogs which was very nice of the them to do. We also fell in love with one of
their dogs named "Chubs" who was a gracious host as well!
He took the lead on all our walks and led us around the
property showing the way to the waterfall and all the other
trails. Very cool dog! The hot tub was an awesome place to
hang and enjoy the evening. About a 20 minute drive to the
town of Scottsville where they have a couple nice eateries as
well as the James River Brewing Company (great beer!). We
would recommend this property to anyone at any age. A lot to
do and see even if you never leave the house!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. So happy that you had an enjoyable weekend to celebrate your anniversary. Sorry, that I was out of town, but hopefully we'll see you again in the future. However, my family was quick to say what pleasant guests you were. Blessings! Lisa

Fun carriage house in the woods

  • 4 of 5
The carriage house is very open and feels spacious. It has a deck with table and chairs and a balcony overlooking the courtyard. It was only a 20-30 minute drive into Charlottesville. Scottsville is a really small town with only a few restaurants (the restaurant that was most recommended on Trip Advisor closed a few weeks before we arrived). The grounds were beautiful - they had goats and horses. There was a really pretty waterfall on the property as well. The owners were very friendly and nice. We noticed the dining table leg was broken and told the owner as we were leaving to go to Charlottesville, he repaired it before we came back.

Positives: Open floor plan, deck for dining, beautiful view and grounds, most ammenities provided (soap, shampoo, dish liquid, etc)
Negatives: Bugs and ants in the house (it is in the woods), wish the second bedroom had a queen bed instead of 2 twins, the deck was rotting in some places making me a little nervous

Overall I really enjoyed my stay and would be happy to come back!

Absolutely lovely country retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this carriage house for a month while my husband conducted research at Monticello. This is a very comfortable space with an airy and spacious loft-like feel. It has two small bedrooms (but also pullout couches in the living area) and an open-concept living area with high ceilings. It is, as stated, a carriage house—the second story above a workshop that probably used to be an old garage. The owners live in the main house, and the properties share a common courtyard.

We came with our toddler and were pleasantly surprised to find the owners had stocked the house with lots of books and toys. It is tastefully furnished and decorated, with a very comfortable bed and couches, and well-equipped kitchen. The family gave us our privacy while we stayed there, though they were very pleasant and friendly (one of their children even dog-sat for us when we left for a night for our anniversary).

The setting is quite rural—cell phones are iffy, wifi is there but slow. It is definitely a “get away from it all” kind of place! On the property you can visit with the goats and then walk down the horse pasture to a waterfall. Also, just down the road (a 5 minute or less walk) is a popular landing on the James River, where you can swim. Lots of people float the river on inner tubes from here, and if our daughter was older we would have too!

To respond to the previous poster about the trains…yes, there are trains that run by the house, and they blow their horns. Granted it was a hot month that we were there and we were running the AC, but the train never woke any of us during our whole visit.

Nice

  • 3 of 5
The cottage was very nice and the owners where very accommodating. If you like nature this is the place to be very quiet other than the train going by, but it wasn't that bad. Not far from Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and Walton's Mountain. After visiting Monticello we went to Michie's Tavern which was a very good place to eat. The only disappointment that I had "My Opinion" was the appearance around the cottage inside the court yard. I am very much a gardner and I pride myself in the way my flowers, garden and shrubs look. One thing this did not have, the garden was very overgrown with weeds and shrubs that needed to be trimmed and not many flowers at all. The cushions on the chairs where very dirty and the hot tub didn't look inviting at all. If you are not into outside appearance than this is the place for you. I feel she has a gold mine here with just a little tender love and care.

Beautiful location and terrific cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in the Carriage House at Warren Mill. The location is very pretty and remote but close enough to grocery stores and Charlottesville for convenience. The place has a great cottage feel. Beautifull decorated. Very comfortable beds and sofas. All the amenities you need in the kitchen. It was clean and well organized and laid-out. The family was very welcoming. We loved it and can't wait to go back!

Awesome property

  • 2 of 5
We loved this property - so beautiful! The setting is remote so being away from the traffic is a treat. There are goats, children's toys, a waterfall. Lovely! And the owners are very nice and easy to deal with. And it's a quick jump up to Charlottesville. What took away from our weekend experience were two things: The apartment was not very clean - there were lots and lots of stink bugs (dead and alive) and spiders. They were in every corner, on the ceiling, on the floor, on the counters. Everywhere. Which made it a bit tricky with our little toddler. Some of this goes along with the setting and the building, but many of them could've been removed prior to our arrival. There was also bird poop in the apartment - on the sofa cushios, the high chair, the counter top, the floor. Again, something that we feel should've been cleaned before we arrived, because that was just plain gross. The other thing that made our nights not so restful is that trains run very, very close to this property (like 100 feet or so) and they honk their horns every. single. time. We literally almost fell out of bed around midnight and 6am. So bring ear plugs and a noise machine for sleeping. The trains seems to run throughout the day and night as we heard and saw them many times.

Owner's Response: We have put a great deal of thought and work into making this property enchanting and pleasant for both adults and children. However, there are occasionally acts of nature which interfere. The above guest happened to stay during the height of the stink bugs' departure back outdoors. We had cleaned them out 3 times that day before their arrival. Each time we reentered the cottage there were more. The guests arrived late at night and we weren't able to get back into the cottage to clean again. We were also having a unique experience with bluebirds which had a nest in an unused stovepipe. It took us a while to figure out where the birds were coming from and going. But this issue has been resolved, the bird poop cleaned up and all is back to normal. After seeing this review, I also did a thorough stink bug search and destroy mission going after the ones which die in the deepest recesses. It is unfortunate that our guests were subjected to these forces of nature and I wish that they had let me know about it immediately, so it could have been taken care of and the remainder of their stay been more pleasant. However, I didn't know there was a problem until this review. Please know that we want all of our guests' stays to be as pleasant as possible and will do all in our part to make it so. As to the trains, you just gotta love 'em and most people do.

The historic town of Scottsville is full of the charm and life you would expect of a small river town. Though small, it can satisfy many tastes with its numerous antique and consignment shops, eclectic restaurants, colonial and federal architecture and of course its jewel being the location on the horseshoe bend of the James River. We have two local outfitters who can set you up for a day or more of canoeing, kayaking, fishing, or the ever popular tubing. Perhaps, you are more inclined to visit one of the nearby wineries or enjoy a tour of Monticello. If you time your trip right, there are also seasonal concerts on the river and live, local theatre to be enjoyed. The night owl may even be lured to some of the action on Valley Street enjoying regional bands-these can be heard most every weekend.

Other Activities: canoeing, kayaking, tubing
