Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a luxurious cottage with pool about a 1.5 hour drive from Charlottesville on a 300 acre farm in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Perfect for a romantic weekend or family getaway.

Cost is $250 a night plus vrbo service fee. During the summer, minimum stay is 5 nights. Other times minimum stay is 2 nights..

The cottage consists of a huge window-filled kitchen/dining/living area, made with the finest materials. The hardwood floors are spectacular rustic oak. The kitchen has the latest appliances and wonderful red granite countertops. The living area has a gas fireplace with HDTV and DirecTV, and a comfortable queen-sized sofa bed.

It also includes a bedroom with fireplace, big-screen TV and king-size bed with memory foam mattress.

The cottage sits alone in its own valley, and the farm has spectacular hills, meadows, and woods. It features soaring views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with over a mile of border with the beautiful George Washington National Forest.

Privacy and intimacy go along with the gorgeous landscape. You will be the only people on the farm. From the entire farm, no other houses are visible, despite the stunning views of 20 miles or more. Dozens of deer make their home on the farm and snack on the apple trees around the cottage. In summer there are cows munching away on the grass.

Recreational Equipment: The fishing pond (stocked with catfish, bass and perch) has a paddle boat. Fishing rods available. There is a golf cart and four mountain bikes. There are three kayaks for use on the nearby Cow Pasture River. The kayaks are a short 8' long, so they fit in most cars. Plus there are car racks available.

There's a pool right outside your door, via a rather whimsical bridge from the deck to a jumping platform. Do you dare?

To give you an idea of how large 300 acres is, it would take you about an hour to walk to the back of the farm. We gladly accept pets. The farm has always had pets, and they love it there.

The bathroom has marble floors, ceramic tiles, and a jetted tub with a view of the wilderness. The two-sided deck allows you to sip your morning coffee while looking out over the valley, watching the mist roll through.

Sleeping accommodations consist of the king-sized bed in the bedroom, a queen-sized sofa-bed, a self-inflating queen airbed, and three self-inflating twin airbeds (all 22' high), so you can mix and match as needed.

Wander the farm to your heart's delight. Swim to your hearts content. Fish in the pond. Check out a nearby river swimming hole right out of Tom Sawyer. Careen about on the mountain bikes or the golf cart. Go kayaking!

About The Owner

I grew up on the farm. My dad bought it from the Bright family, who homesteaded it about 150 years ago.

Fun, relaxed vacation for the whole family including our 2 dogs!

  • 5 of 5

Jim was quick to reply and answered all of our questions prior to booking. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage and exploring the farm proper. The golf cart was employed each day giving the dogs a run for their money and our daughter some fun driving lessons! We used the paddle boat in the pond and took out one of the kayaks on the river down the road.

The cottage was clean and well appointed. They aren't kidding about just bringing your food. There was every kind of coffee maker you could want. I was particularly excited to find and use the rice cooker! We settled in very easily with Essie's help and as we were leaving at the end of the trip my daughter said "When we come next year..." No better endorsement than that!

Perfect SECLUDED getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Before booking, Jim was great and responded to my emails in a speedy manner. After booking, Essie was very friendly over the phone and answered any questions we had. If it's seclusion you want, don't hesitate to book! There aren't many restaurants or even grocery stores close by, so be sure to bring plenty of food. We came prepared and there wasn't anything that we ended up needing, so we didn't venture out to shop.

So much land to explore. Can not wait to come back. The only thing I will do differently is visit the farm outside of Winter, when the days are longer! Thank you Essie and Jim!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three and two dogs stayed here for a long weekend. The cottage was very clean and functional, but the land was exceptional. Loved having access to the golf cart, and we spent a lot of time exploring the property. Thanks for keeping extra gloves handy! Would love to return in the summer to enjoy the pool!

beautiful mountain views

  • 4 of 5

This is a very quaint and lovely cottage. Owners did not skimp on amenities. The only problems we had were there were no matches and the one lighter didn't work. The fireplace in the living room wouldn't start--probably needed batteries, there was no bath soap (the instructions told us we only needed to bring food--everything else was provided), and we had to hunt for our pillows. These problems did not interfere with our complete enjoyment of our stay. We will definitely return!
