About the property

Charming two bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cottage located on top of North Mountain in Winchester, Virginia. The views across the valley are spectacular. The Cozy Cottage s a great 'get-out-of-town' spot for Northern Virginia residents. So close to Washington, D.C. yet far enough away.

Check out a neat webpage and app, 'Old Town Winchester', for things to do, places to go, and great places to eat. (Available in your phone's App Store.)

**12/18/17** The hot tub has been turned off for the winter. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Let me help you get away, very soon!

About The Cozy Cottage of Winchester * Stacy Bromley-Wenger

I grew up in the Shenandoah Valley so if there is something you want to do, just ask and I can help you find it!

The Cozy Cottage of Winchester * Stacy Bromley-Wenger purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Cozy Cottage of Winchester * Stacy Bromley-Wenger chose Winchester

This charming little house has a way of relaxing you within seconds. You are away from everything yet not needing anything! I call the cottage 'My Serenity' because it truly is just that.

We successfully rented this sweetheart out as a vacation rental five years ago. Due to travel requirements for my job, I wasn't able to continue renting it as such. Our full-timers moved out in January and the renovations began immediately. Since our original page was deleted, I will be asking past guests to kindly post reviews.

What makes this cottage unique

Oh my gosh, stay just once and you can fill in this blank.

Stunning cottage and great owners!

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Cottage was wonderful! The stay was exactly as hoped! Tranquil, soothing, and secluded. It is a great getaway and I got plenty of writing done while enjoying the views and the cozy wood stove. The house is beautiful and well maintained with many special touches that made for a wonderful welcome. In fact, the interior doors have a style of knobs and locks that hold great sentimental value for me.

It was about 68° outside on arrival, fell to around 20° before midnight due to a huge cold front with high winds and driven rain, and the wind chill was 1° by the end of the weekend. The Cozy Cottage remained delightfully cozy the entire time.

Stacy was absolutely wonderful to communicate with before the stay, and when I needed to chat with her during it to address a minor issue from the wind storm. I don’t remember ever seeing the above-and-beyond hospitality and genuine warmth from property owners as I did from Stacy and her husband.

“Cozy Cottage “

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful time of the year to enjoy the Shenandoah mountains… The cabin was located in a very convenient location to see all the areas we were interested. Every morning was enjoyed in the hot tub watching the sunrise and looking at the view! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your cozy cottage!

So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Cottage was a perfect getaway for two gal pals looking for peace & quiet, and beautiful views. Surrounded by woods, on a road where we never saw another car, it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere - but with all the comforts of home.

We loved the views from the deck (even when we had to share them with some wasps!), the hot tub, the well-equipped kitchen, and hours hanging out at the dining room table. The house had enough space for us to have time to ourselves, as well as to watch TV, play a game of air hockey, and split a bottle of wine (or three) over a long weekend getaway.

We'll visit again, soon!

Charming and comfortable cottage away from it all

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The wi-fi worked great and hanging out on the deck was a delight. Relaxing in the hot tub after a day of hiking was especially nice. The owner was great to work with and made sure that we had a wonderful stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $100
Damage Insurance $79

So you want to get away for a weekend? You send an inquiry and anxiously await an answer. I will always do my best to keep reservations on a first-come first-serve basis. However, inquiries do not reserve a property. Please keep in mind that HomeAway is a customer driven system. If another customer reserves the property with a payment, you could easily lose your slot if the owner accepts the payment. As a property owner, I do my best to watch for such instances however I am human after all...and mistakes can happen.

Along the lines of being human; accidents happen. However, when these accidents happen it can halt future reservations or cancel another renter's reservation. Due to recent damages to our home, we feel it is necessary to require a Property Damage Protection Policy. The policy protects both of us in the event of an accident.

The cleaning fee is non-refundable. This does not suggest for you to not pick up after yourself. The $100 fee is quite modest as it barely covers to cost of a two person crew. Please do not make it difficult to turn the house over for the next set of guests. Imagine your disappointment if you were the arriving guests after a destructive party weekend. The cleaning crew will need to delay your entry until the house is ready.

I have often been asked about discounts. As a wife of a veteran and the child of a police officer, I do understand your request. However, our rates are based on other homes' rental rates and our operating expenses. As the potential renter, please advise me if your budget does not afford the full amount up front. I will gladly accept an installment plan of up to three payments. I will also refund your money should you change your mind prior to your stay.

With all of that said....

Isn't it time to get away?!

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
