Overview

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.)

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 Shenandoah Valley

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.

Peaceful, relaxing getaway with the family

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cozy cottage. We are a family of 4, with a 4-year-old and an 18-month-old. The location is picturesque and peaceful. I believe there may only be one other house down the street, so we were basically on our own on the top of a ridge. The kids slept well in the one bedroom and my wife and I slept in the loft, which has its own balcony. The basement is stocked with games and books for the kids, and the variety would interest kids into their teenage years. The hot tub on the deck was a treat at the end of every long day (our kids wake up very early). The kitchen was well equipped, and stores and local markets are located a short drive away. There's laundry and a dishwasher, so the conveniences of modern life are there, but this cottage is a world away. It was a great place to spend our vacation this year.

This cozy cottage had everything we wanted and more! 3 patio/decks where we could enjoy the views and a nice hot tub to relax in. I would return again!

Everything and then some!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this cottage! The views are amazing, the hot tub relaxing, and the beds comfortable. I couldn't think of anything that was missing from this home, toilet paper was even provided, which is very rare to find in vacation rentals. There are plenty of games and toys to keep people of any age entertained. The road up to and down from the cottage can be a little intimidating, but I felt like a complete pro by the time we left. There is a Wal-Mart not too far away, and a great, small town convenience store just down the mountain. I would definitely stay here again and can't wait to go back!

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are very accommodating, the cottage was exactly what my sisters and I were looking for, for our annual sister's weekend. Very adventurous ride to the cottage but well worth it, beautiful views, not far from downtown Winchester, home away from home.

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 $75 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?!
