Cottage was amazing!
Property was absolutely beautiful! Owner was very welcoming and was available if we needed anything or had any questions. Cottage was right beside the homeowner, but respected our privacy. Lots of different things to do on the property. Views were stunning. Kathy brought us some treats which was so nice and thoughtful! The cottage was extremely clean. The kitchen was stocked with the basic necessity’s. Logs and sticks were provided for the wood stove (which was so cozy)! Loved it and would definitely come back!
Romantic Weekend Under the Stars
This property is definitely off the beaten path, but we felt very safe with the main house nearby. It was beautiful to sit out in the hot tub and look up at the stars that we don't always get to see in the city. We took a drive into Lexington one day, but would've been content to just stay in the cabin the whole time. Kathy did a great job providing everything we would need and making it feel very homey. This property is perfect for a getaway, off-the-grid kind of weekend.
Excellent host with great location
Easily my favorite property. Kathy has thought of everything someone might need while visiting and even offered to pick up items from the store while out. You won’t find a better property owner. The property itself is beautiful with lots of areas to explore, or comfortable place to stay in and unwind. Truly an escape to a slower pace to relax. The amenities of the cottage itself is impressive and very well kept. I couldn’t recommend this property/owner more.
Rest & Relaxation
My getaway was nothing short of amazing. The cottage is located in a beautiful, secluded area. The inside of the cottage is absolutely perfect. Kathy was the best host - attentive and welcoming. She left us little goodies when we first arrived. She made sure our stay was everything we wanted it to be. The hot tub was amazing - peaceful and secluded.
& The doggie, Rufus, was my favorite part of the cottage! He greeted me my first morning there and was the sweetest host!
I loved my time here and will definitely be booking this place again in the future.
My husband and I had the privilege of staying at the Dancing Bears Cottage. We had the most romantic stay in this little get away. The cottage is beautiful and Kathys attention to detail made the stay even more special. We arrived Friday night after a long week of work, Kathy welcomed us and showed us where to go. We did not see her again but we knew she was easily accessible if needed. The cottage was clean and very cozy. Kathy had the wood stove on from earlier so it was also perfectly warm for a cold night in November. We had brought food so we heated it up in the kitchen (which is well stocked with all of the basic necessities) and went in the hot rob to unwind and look at the stars. Saturday we woke up and cooked breakfast, went to the Virginia safari park (highly recommend) and then lunch in Lexington and a winery tasting at the Lexington Valley winery. After that, we went back to the cottage where my husband started a fire in the fire pit just outside. I warmed up the spiced cider that Kathy had left for us and we drank a cider by the fire overlooking the sunset just past the mountains. It truly was magical. Once the sun had set and it started to get more chilly, we warmed up dinner once again and then played some of the games that are at the lodge (pick up sticks was our favorite). Then back to the hot tub we went. Sunday, we woke up, made breakfast and then head out. A few things to note:
-there is not very much around so make sure you bring all the food and things you need (Kathy has thought of almost everything but just Incase- you don’t want to leave the cottage once you arrive)
-the bed is on the more firm side- my husband loved it but it was a little to firm for me (but I do understand, everyone has their own preferences)
-You are adjacent to her main house. It did not really affect us at all- Kathy and her family were very respectful of our privacy.
Overall, we absolutely loved our stay and would definitely recomendable this cottage to anyone.
This is a beautiful, comfortable, extremely clean cottage that I will look forward to returning to. I was there on an October weekend and the sound of rain falling on the metal roof was totally relaxing. The colors of the leaves turning on the trees out the windows were perfect. The furnishings in the home are very comfortable. Kathy is the ultimate owner/hostess - she left gifts of spiced cider and pumpkin-pecan coffee cake in the refrigerator which I totally enjoyed. It is obvious that it is a well-loved cottage. And last, but not least, the friendly dog Rufus is deserving of a perfect host award!
Come back to nature in a simple yet gorgeous cottage on the edge of the woods with views of Jump Mountain. Our 100 acre property adjoins 22,000 acres of Little North Mountain Wildlife Management Area, so you are likely to see a variety of wildlife such as deer, turkeys and the occasional fox or black bear. You will also find it offers excellent birding opportunities for a large variety of birds. Relax in the hammock, on the deck, or in the hot tub. Hike several well-marked trails (up to 3 mile loop) through the woods or fish and kayak in the spring-fed pond. Children will love catching crayfish in the creeks and playing in the tree house or swinging under the cherry tree. No need to leave the property for entertainment! Being this rural offers a peaceful quiet which is rarely experienced and a dark night sky to view breathtaking stars, constellations, and the Milky Way!
NOTE: There is NO CABLE TV here! We haven't had cable or network TV since 1993! If you can't miss your favorite show or game (and don't want to watch in town) please know this is not the best option for your getaway. We do have a television set with DVD player and a large selection of movies for entertainment, as well as games and books.
