Wonderful vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage for my family to stay in during a visit for Christmas. The house was cozy and welcoming, and had plenty of room for my 6 family members. I would definitely stay here again!

Welcoming and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Timberlake cottage proved to be an excellent base for travelling to the Blue Ridge and beyond, visiting the Civil War sites and the historical residences of former Presidents. The house was very clean and comfortable and it was good to sit on the back deck at the end of a long day. It is convenient for the road systems and there is a supermarket just up the road for supplies. The owners were very responsive.

Nice, very clean and convenient cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed the Cottage at Timberlake, specially my daughter who has fun with the goats and the chickens and she even put nicknames on them :-)

I appreciated a very clean property.

Convenient location to go to Peaks of Otter, Smith Mountain Lake, Lynchburg.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Unlike the review before us, this location was PERFECTfor our family. My girls are on a first name basis with all the goats and chickens. For us, it was the perfect balance of easy access to the town and a country feel if you walked out the back door. The property was beautiful. At night, the woods lit up like a Christmas tree with all the fireflies. We were close enough to travel to Peaks of Otter and hike up the mountain one day, spent another day in Appomattox and learned so much about history. Clover Hill Village was a favorite of our family. Tim was fantastic and took care of the animals. My younger daughter loved that she could ask him questions about the animals when he was feeding them. After returning from vacation, my family and I are agreed that this vacation ranks up there as one of our best ever! Thank you for a wonderful vacation - it was very much needed!

Mixed feelings

  • 3 of 5

Inside of house is great. Beds were comfortable and house was clean and well stocked with necessities. However, the house is within about 40 feet of a 4 lane divided highway, which creates noise problems. Picture of house and description of property in advertisement versus the reality is not really accurate. I thought I was getting a house sitting on 5 acres for a quiet country like setting. Also not mentioned is the barn next to the house that has 3 additional rentable spaces that were occupied, one by the owner who was on site nearly every day. Wife was uncomfortable going out to the animals because the owner was usually out there already. if you think you are getting a house on 5 acres with privacy and solitude, you might be disappointed. I know we were. I communicated these concerns privately to the owner through email and have not received a response. This place might work for some, but it didn't really work for us.

Owner's Response: I responded to all three of this guests emails. He wanted something for nothing. Called me a name I can't repeat here. He showed up 2.5 hours early on arrival day even after we told him twice that the cleaner would not be finished before 4pm because there was a departure that same day. Take what he has written with a grain of salt. We have lots of repeat guests and satisfied customers for over five years now. No one has ever complained about noise before. This guest said he lived in Lynchburg before and went to school right down the street from the house. How could he not know where the house was located? Everything you need to know about the house is right there in the listing. There is a google map with street view in the listing. Our listing says we are two doors down from the Tiny Town Putt Putt Golf and Donut Shop. We are right in the middle of town and not in the country. You can go out to the backyard where the chickens and goats and creek are and feel like you are in the country. If you have any questions or concerns please ask us before or during your stay. Our three rentals next door are on a separate property and over 200 feet away from the cottage. The parking lot and entrances are on the other side of the building. All four of our listings are linked together under "owner info" and they each mention our chickens and goats and have similar photos. How could you not put them together? The guests that rent the studios next door are in Lynchburg for LU intensive classes and seldom, if ever, go outside because they are studying all of the time. We live in Florida and not at the property. When we come to Lynchburg there is always a list of things to do to maintain a house with five acres and animals. We always try to be as unobtrusive as possible. The animals have to be fed and watered twice a day. Morning and evening. How does he think they are going to eat and be taken care of? Was he going to put on his muck boots and clean out the coop and goat shed? Who is going to mow five acres of grass, trim the bushes and weed-eat? We also like to free range the chickens and goats while we are in town. This allows guests more interaction with the animals than if they were fenced in. There are four new hotels on Wards Road that back up to the railroad tracks and on a busier street than ours and next to the airport. One hotel is right next to a biker bar. All of them are over $120 per night.

Wonderful Easter Weekend at Timberlake Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed a wonderful visit with our daughter, who is a student at Lynchburg College. We really felt at home in the adorable cottage and there was plenty of room to spread out, not like being crammed into a hotel room. While the weather wasn't perfect, the house certainly was. It is decorated beautifully and had everything we needed and more.

The beds were very comfortable, the water pressure in the shower was great, and the linens provided were a convenience for us. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, and we did cook a few meals there while we were visiting.

My kids could not get enough of the GOATS!! I really didn't know that goats could be so amusing, but we spent a few hours on the rainy Easter Sunday just hanging out with them, and it was delightful. We would love to stay at Timberlake Cottage on another visit to Lynchburg. We really felt like we got to see and be part of the town much more than all our prior stays at hotels. The house also gave us the opportunity to just hang out, play cards, and connect as a family.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!
