Convenient to Charlottesville, Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Parkway. Accomodations were wonderful and clean, beautifully decorated, everything you may need is included. Kitchen is completely outfitted for cooking/dining in if you wish. Master bed is comfy, even pull-out sofa bed in living room was comfy once memory foam mattress topper (provided) was added. This is the best vacation home I have ever rented by far (and I have rented a lot!). Quiet, secluded area with lovely natural surroundings and beautiful views of the James River. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, hope to get back to this gem one day!

PS-The visits by "Miss Kitty" were among the highlights of our trip :)

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have wanted to see Monticello for a long time and he's never been to Shenandoah National Forest so we wanted to find a mutual place to stay. We are big hikers as well. Finding this place was a dream and renting it was painless. The house was a fantastic, comfortable place to stay. What a warm welcome to come back to after an adventurous day of hiking and sightseeing. Secluded, beautiful views. We didn't need to bring anything but food and clothes because it had everything. The deck every morning for coffee and evening toddies was wonderful.

Thank you,

Tina I.

Incredible place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived fairly early before check in and called the owner and was encouraged to go ahead and check in early. The place was clean and well stocked with anything you may need. We always bring extra towels, wash cloth, hand towels dishwashing detergent, clothes detergent, and hand soap and we never had to unpack those items. It was clean and comfortable. The bed was great in so that we have decided to buy a new bed when we got home. It was super convenient to everything, Monticello's , Charlottesville, Shenandoah and blue ridge parkway. 20 minute ride and you are on a major highway to go in either direction. We always cook when we stay at a Homeaway so restaurants are not a big deal. Although we decided to get carry out at Amacis Italian restaurant 5 mins away, and it was so delicious. If you needed any groceries Foodlion was a few mins away!! All in all it was a great vacation with all the hiking it was wonderful to come back to the house with all the great views. Thank you Teresa for allowing us to stay at you place!! Oh yes and the bedside candy was a real treat for my husband!!😘?

Serene, quiet, lovely

  • 4 of 5

This property is incredibly clean and the kitchen well locked closets forcing you to buy a box of trash can liners, everything you need is there for use during your stay. Unfortunately for 2 old timers (51 & 54) who are used to a heavenly king sized bed at home, we found sleeping very problematic on the queen sized bed. The mattress is very firm (something neither of us found comfortable) but we were able to supplement the mattress with a memory foam mattress cover found in the closet that helped enormously. The only thing we couldn't remedy was that the sofa was not a "curl-up-on-a-rainy-day-and-read" comfy sofa although it served it's purpose. In the morning we would take our coffee on the covered deck, listening to the wild turkey, owls and the birds calling to one another. Also, when we first arrived I found that there was not pitcher for sweet tea and within minutes the owners delivered one! :) All in all, we enjoyed the property immensely but we have both decided that in the future, if we cannot find a king sized bed then back to the hotels we will go. I would have given this property 5 stars if not for the bed.

Quiet & Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully decorated. Quiet & remote. Beautiful views of the St. James river. Not much happening in Scottsville, VA, but if that's what you're looking for, this place has it.

About an easy 30 minute ride in to Charlottesville for more dining options. We absolutely recommend this home.
