Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Carriage House studio cottage during our Memorial Day weekend trip. The cottage was just the right size for the two of us. The mahogany bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, coffeepot, etc. There was room in the kitchen for the two of us to move around comfortably. A window over the kitchen sink provided views of the rolling hills of Virginia and the Angus cattle grazing quietly. We met the cute miniature horses and a couple of friendly outdoor cats during our walks. The farm is lovely. We plan to return in the fall to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Tasteful studio cottage on heavenly property

  • 5 of 5

This property was breathtaking with views of the mountains, fields of happily grazing cows and an historic manor house. The owner is kind and accommodating , and was able to offer recommendations for local services. The cottage itself is bigger than I expected. Very comfortable bed, nice kitchen and views of miniature horses out the windows. Absolutely peaceful. Adorable cats come to visit. Hiking available on the property.

Relaxing and Special Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Boyfriend and I came to get out of the city for New Years. Had a lovely time simply hanging out at the Cottage. We cooked all of our meals and had everything we needed in the kitchen. We enjoyed a walk on the property and a drive down Skyline Drive which was very close. The views from the bed were amazing and we enjoyed the porch even in the dead of winter. Alton was super attentive and helpful. Thank you!

Beautiful Farm and Cottage! Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This exceeded more than we imagined. When we arrived and saw how beautiful the farm and Carriage House Studio was, we wished we could stay longer. It's located privately facing the mountains and perfect for a couple that wishes to take a romantic getaway. The Carriage House Studio is very clean, has everything you need and is obviously well taken care of. Bonus is the beautiful pool that is a short walk away. We will definitely be back.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the weekend here for our first wedding anniversary. It was the perfect escape from the city and a very romantic setting. The views were incredible from our porch at Carriage House. We ended up spending a lot of time at the cottage cooking, drinking wine, and just enjoying the quiet and the views. We also went to a nearby winery and hiked around the farm. The cottage was very clean, the fireplace extremely cosy-- just absolutely wonderful. The panoramic views of the mountains from the windows inside the bedroom are stunning, and the pictures on their web site do NOT do it justice! I want to keep his place all to myself! Alton was also easy to get ahold of and very friendly.
