You won’t find a better house for VMI visits or a family vacation. We’ve stayed here 3 times!!
We are vacation rental pros and this is a GOLD STAR accommodation! We’ve stayed in this house 3 times. It is beautiful, clean, well appointed, and comfortable for our family of 6. Cliff and Chris are fabulous hosts and make you feel like old friends. They have always been accommodating and unlike ALL OTHER local hotels and rentals, they DO NOT jack up their prices for graduations, or other high volume rental dates!! They have all the creature comforts, including a well appointed kitchen, fluffy towels, snacks, coffee and even bowls of mints! Seriously, the views will leave you envious! Why would anyone stay in a cramped hotel when you could have an entire gorgeous house, furnished with beautiful antiques, a full kitchen, 2 baths (one with a wonderful claw foot tub), and a HUGE screened in porch with plenty of seating for the same price! This is one of Natural Bridges’ best kept secrets!! If you bring kids, take them to the safari park. My adult kids have begged us to take them back. There is also a general store at Natural Bridge that serves fantastic Reubins and even let us bring our dog in to sleep under the table while we ate. You will enjoy this house and the Natural Bridge area. Tell Cliff and Chris we said hello!
Nothing supports a good review more than returning to Vine Cottage - again and again! We absolutely love being at this special place for our gatherings. Vine Cottage is grand and cozy, well-appointed and casual, elegant and inviting. Vine Cottage is special, and we feel very special while there, not only because of the beautifully curated house but also because of the welcoming care of its owners, Cliff and Chris. Whether we are gathered in the kitchen, meeting in the living room, or enjoying the screened porch, we experience a great get-away and time and space to relax, learn, and center our selves. Gratefully we say, "See you in October!"
Beauty and comfort.
Wonderful blend of turn of the century charm and trimmings with amenities of modern living.
Nice House - Clean and Lots of room
We really had a great time. Cliff and Chris are great Host. House was clean and very spacious.
Beds were comfortable and loved the décor. Will definitely come back again. Had a great tour of the mansion. So much history! Would highly recommend.
WONDERFUL GETAWAY FROM DC
My friends and I had a great weekend trip staying at the country cottage. The house is spacious and very lovely. Cliff is very responsive and a great host. If he is free, highly recommend requesting a tour of the mansion on the estate. Loved the area too, great hikes nearby. Was a bit worried about the proximity of the property to the highway, but the cottage proved very well insulated for sound, so that didn't find the traffic to be an issue even at night. In short, loved our stay! Was a great birthday weekend.
Gorgeous home and property!
The cottage was warmly and tastefully decorated, with attention to every detail! The beds and linens were high quality and ultra comfy, plenty of towels and toiletries were provided. The kitchen had everything we could have required, and we were pleasantly surprised to have a delicious assortment of coffee, tea, granola bars, snacks, and bottled water waiting for us as well. The owners were amazing; they graciously gave us a tour and history of the stunningly beautiful Manor House, and invited us to visit their horses, both which we all really enjoyed. We highly recommend this property and will definitely make plans to return.
