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 used to control water flow to the Mill. This are 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.
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!
Had a wonderful stay here! I think the most helpful advice I can give anyone considering this location is that you have to come here looking at it from the point of you are staying at someone's house. This is not a hotel. There is also very little cell service out here- T-mobile was non existent and Verizon Wireless only got a signal once you drove off the property. However the wifi was more than enough to watch videos and do any research for stuff you want to do on your trip. The location while not far from Charlottesville still takes a while to reach places. Coming from the city- I found I underestimated the distance of things and it often took much longer than I expected to get places. The surrounding countryside was really nice- LOVED the waterfall and the swimming hole - I wish I had come here in the summer! The train, wasn't too bad. It passes may be 5-6 times a day. The horn is loud but doesn't go on and on. Overall the entire train takes about 1 minute to pass. I personally prefer it to the sound of drunk hotel room neighbors. There were quite a few stink bugs. I don't think I have ever seen so many, however that's just the reality of living in that region. No matter where I went there were stink bugs, even in town, even in Monticello! They are easy to catch and flush, so while a nuisance its much better than having the same amount of mosquitoes. The courtyard is also a really nice feature. We were able to let our dog out without worrying she'd run off into the woods. Considering this is my first time staying at a non hotel like property I would have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It's a great place to retreat to and just enjoy the simple pleasures of being in the country. Oh and there is no goat there anymore :( But there are plenty of cows and horses in the surrounding farmland!
My family of five had a wonderful short vacation away from it all. We have an 11 year old daughter, 15 year old daughter and 17 year old son and there was plenty of space and lots to do. We fished and relaxed by the waterfall in the morning. Then took the kayaks out to the James River in the afternoon. What a great time! Absolutely beautiful property and darling carriage house. We would definitely come back again.
My wife and I celebrated our 11th anniversary at this wonderful property and we loved it! The Carriage House was exactly as the description says, very spacious and very well appointed. Everything we needed was provided and the owners were very helpful with information about the area. We
overslept both mornings due to the peacefulness and the
great bed! They even allowed us bring our dogs which was very nice of the them to do. We also fell in love with one of
their dogs named "Chubs" who was a gracious host as well!
He took the lead on all our walks and led us around the
property showing the way to the waterfall and all the other
trails. Very cool dog! The hot tub was an awesome place to
hang and enjoy the evening. About a 20 minute drive to the
town of Scottsville where they have a couple nice eateries as
well as the James River Brewing Company (great beer!). We
would recommend this property to anyone at any age. A lot to
do and see even if you never leave the house!
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
