The Carriage House at Warren Mill is a post and beam construction on the historic site of the still present Warren Mill.
It is on the 2nd level with an expansive deck that overlooks the horse pasture and creek on the property. Indoors, the living area is open and quite spacious with a full kitchen and large dining table.
It's proximity to the James River make it the ideal location for enjoying recreation on the river. Additionally, there are walking trails behind the property as well as a wide waterfall which was once a dam to control water flow to the Mill. This now makes a lovely swimming hole and woodland retreat.
Many guests have enjoyed the Carriage House at Warren Mill as a couples' getaway, family retreat, girls' weekend, wedding stay, etc. As is normal, very few of these reviews are posted. It seems a way of human nature that those who are dissatisfied are most likely to write a review. These reviews have been helpful to me and I would like to note changes that have been made. I now have a quarterly pest control service-though it is not possible to be free of every stink bug, ant, or mouse in the country-this service has made a tremendous difference. The courtyard has had a facelift with removal of the raised beds which seemed only to grow weeds and additional seating with a firepit added. Cushions on deck chairs have been replaced. I have planted a mini-orchard of dwarf peach trees in wine barrels in front of the hot tub and have plans for privacy screening. I would ask future guests to consider writing a review if they have enjoyed their stay and let me know immediately if there are any problems that I can attend to.
Please consider the Carriage House when in the Charlottesville/Scottsville area and don't hesitate to communicate to ensure a pleasant stay.
My family (plus our little dog) enjoyed every part of our stay at the Carriage House! The property was clean and well stocked- it had everything we needed, from towels, to paper products, to cooking utensils and pans, condiments and spices, a tv, a hot tub, outdoor furniture, a grill, and a fire pit. We lacked nothing! We enjoyed walking/hiking around the property near the creek. The waterfall was a perfect spot to read a book or doze off in the hammock. So relaxing! The property enables you to have the best of both worlds- a cozy nature retreat for the days you want peace and quiet but close enough to enjoy the city for some historical sites like Monticello, wineries, the Carter Mountain orchard, or some good restaurants etc. Its about a 10 minute drive into the downtown of Scottsville (which has a Food Lion grocery store and some local restaurants). Its only about a 20-30 min drive into Charlottesville to see Monticello or to visit the cool downtown area with some nice outdoor restaurant seating.
I cannot stress how awesome this property was! We had perfect fall weather during the day and spent some time closing out the evenings with some nice fires in the fire pit.
Thanks again to the owners! Lisa was great to work with and very hospitable! I highly recommend this place to anyone reading this! My family definitely wants to come back and stay again.
This is a great location for enjoying Virgina wine country and nearby Charlottesville and Montecello. Our dogs loved the large field behind the house. We cooked some of our own meals, the kitchen is very nice. We highly recommend this place to stay.
We had an awesome stay at the Carriage House! It was perfect for my husband and I, our 15month old daughter and our two Mastiffs. It was a great amount of space for our family, beautiful decorated (farmhouse style), and the property is off the charts. Our pups ran free on the land, and we all enjoyed visiting the waterfalls. It's prettty, dreamy! We also liked that we could enjoy nature, as well as, the city, since Charlottsvile is roughly 25mins away. There is a large deck and bottom patio to hang out on, as well as, the hot tub . The only downside is there isn't a lot of privacy when using the outdoor space. Also, if the hot tub is important to you, double check that it's working before your stay!
Lisa was very friendly and easy to work with!
We would definitely recommend this place!!
Wonderful stay, loved being in the country. Saw my first bear in the wild about 2 miles from the house. Waterfall and the swimming hole were amazing for our dogs. Would definitely come back.
Our stay at the carriage house was very relaxing. We spent the first afternoon with the dogs hanging out by the waterfall and enjoying a growler of beer from James River Brewing. With our purchases from a great butcher in Charlottesville, we utilized the full kitchen and had a great meal overlooking the meadow from the top deck. Our hosts were excellent and responded to all questions quickly. Would stay here again.
Thanks so much for the wonderful get away! We definitely didn't come for long enough and can't wait to come back - and will make sure we do when it's warm enough to enjoy the swimming hole and rope swing! Also, we hope to enjoy the grill, hot tub, and fire pit next time too - so much to do and enjoy! We love exploring the property with our dogs, and they definitely loved it too! This is a hidden gem for sure and we are thankful for you sharing it with us! We couldn't ask for anything better! Beautiful inside and out, well kept, well stocked, clean, etc. Thanks for everything! Your hospitality and flexibility is very much appreciated.
I would definitely recommend this place for ANYBODY, as long as you know you are going to be staying in the woods, and a good 30 minutes from Charlottesville. If you want the seclusion and privacy, which we did - this is your spot! We were still able to go to the Grounds and Corner at UVA, out to eat on the downtown mall, hiking in Charlottesville, and apple picking at Carter's mountain all within a 30 minute or so drive.
I took plenty of pictures and would love to share so everyone can see just how amazing this place is. I really have no "negative feedback" and hope people see this review and realize this was the true experience. I'm not sure what some of the other reviews were looking for, but this was perfect!
The historic town of Scottsville is full of the charm and life you would expect of a small river town. Though small, it can satisfy many tastes with its numerous antique and consignment shops, eclectic restaurants, colonial and federal architecture and of course its jewel being the location on the horseshoe bend of the James River. We have two local outfitters who can set you up for a day or more of canoeing, kayaking, fishing, or the ever popular tubing. Perhaps, you are more inclined to visit one of the nearby wineries or enjoy a tour of Monticello. If you time your trip right, there are also seasonal concerts on the river and live, local theatre to be enjoyed. The night owl may even be lured to some of the action on Valley Street enjoying regional bands-these can be heard most every weekend.
Other Activities: canoeing, kayaking, tubing
