Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this cottage with some friends and just loved it. Sonya and Andre' are kind and welcoming and let our sons run around the farm and visit the animals. It was the perfect place to catch up with friends in a homey atmosphere.

Save room for the homemade bread and honey!

Beautiful, cozy cottage all decorated for Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Sonya & Andre's lovely cottage for 3 nights while visiting family in Roanoke. It was amazing. Sonya had fresh baked bread and honey from the farm waiting for us--and she had just finished decorating the whole cottage for the holidays! It was adorable and cheery with a beautiful Christmas tree in nearly every room. The cottage was extremely clean & comfortable--we didn't want to leave! Will def be back. And did I mention the mini horses? Loved it =)

Wonderful, cozy cottage stay!

  • 5 of 5

Must love animals! They are all around which gave us such a homey feel. My family of 4 stayed over the long weekend for 2 nights and had such a wonderful time at this mini oasis within the city. My girls loved seeing the miniature horses and goat. My youngest fell in love with Duke the cat. The cottage was cozy and warm with everything needed. The layout is great for multiple people to enjoy without disturbing each other. Sonya was a terrific hostess and so very attentive with excellent and quick communication. The cottage was the cleanest I've had to pleasure to stay in. Location was convenient to most parts of the city and getting to the Parkway. I wish we had more time to enjoy more time there. The fire pit looked so inviting! The fresh honey and bread and homemade soap were such a nice touch. I hope we are able to make it back in the future to enjoy more time here!

Warm and Welcoming Cottage and Host

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week-long stay at the cottage. Sonya couldn't have been more helpful and baked us a wonderful loaf of fresh bread with honey. The cottage is decorated with lots of country charm and the grounds are gorgeous. I loved waking up each morning to find the miniature horses outside my window and enjoyed the friendly cat which greeted us at the door. The beds are super comfortable and the location is close to everything we needed. We will be moving to the Roanoke area in a few months, otherwise, we would stay here again and again.

Beautiful Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful cottage! The cottage was clean, tidy and well stocked with anything that we might need during our stay. Our family especially enjoyed the basketball/tennis courts and game room! We loved the serenity of their farm. The Howes were available, kind and helpful with any needs that we had. It was a great place to retreat to for a Parents College Weekend!
