Great Family Area Visit Launch Site - Or Just Destination

  • 5 of 5
We ended a road trip with a week at Afton Cottage. Having stayed in the Charlottesville area in the past, we had an idea of the places we were going to visit and from the description the cottage seemed like a great fit. It absolutely did not disappoint! It was roomy enough for our family of 4 plus our dog, but still felt cozy. It was well-equipped with all the basics. The laundry room and having plenty of linens and towels for everyone were definite perks - as anyone who has traveled with small children can appreciate! Dick has a binder, which I'll call "the book." It has information on the area from some basics to you-didn't-realize-you-wanted-to-know-until-you-did pieces of info. We visited Monticello, Michie Tavern, Carter Mountain, Blue Mountain Brewery, Devil's Backbone Brewery, the Cidery, a handful of vineyards, Tuckahoe Antique Mall (very reasonable BTW) and did some hiking in Shenandoah and a cute little walking trail in Nellysford. We also visited several of the local shops for produce/local items. Critzer has great produce and fresh eggs and the woman during my visit was super friendly. The heirloom tomatoes are amazing. They're literally across from Blue Mountain Brewery. Definitely worth the quick trip. During the rainy days we were content to stay in and watch movies. On nice days, the deck was perfect for deer watching, coffee in the morning and stars in the evening. Dick popped by to introduce himself and to answer any questions, but didn't impose. Overall, it is a great little retreat! Even our dog had a great time - kicked off by the complementary dog treats waiting for her on arrival!

P.S. A previous reviewer mentioned the knives. It seemed like a random comment to me at the time, but boy will you enjoy them if you do any of your own meal prep!

Delightful find!

  • 5 of 5
The Afton Cottage was a delightful find and perfectly suited our needs for a weekend get away from Washington DC and a home a way from home to connect with our family! The cottage is lovely, tidy and very well equipped for the most comfortable and relaxed stay. We enjoyed cooking on the deck and found the kitchen to be very well equipped. We will definitely consider returning to Afton Cottage to explore more of this beautiful area.
