Four of us spent a great week at the Vine Cottage. It was comfortable, well laid out with everything we needed, and in a great location. Three dogs enjoyed it, also. Cliff and Chris were perfect hosts, and we lacked for nothing. A tour of the manor was a bonus. Highly recommended.

VMI Parent Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many homes thru VRBO & HomeAway. Vine Cottage is the loveliest by far. This home has been wonderfully restored & furnished with every attention to detail. It is the best of both worlds, furnished with wonderful antiques in keeping with the feel of the home, and yet comfortable with all modern conveniences. I enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen and our family took long walks on the estate, taking in the sweeping views it offers. You will not be disappointed! This home offers linens, copious amounts of fluffy towels and pillows, breathtaking views, relaxing living quarters, and a thoughtful selection of teas, coffees, snacks & bottled waters. Owners Cliff & Chris are quick to respond to requests and accommodated a couple of our specific needs. They are two of the nicest folks you could meet. If you are blessed with the offer of a tour of the grand home, DO NOT decline. It is wonderful to see someone dedicated to the restoration of an estate of this size. We loved Vine Cottage so much we booked another date before we arrived and a third stay for our son's graduation next year, while we were there!

Owner's Response: We thoroughly have Genny and her charming family stay here at the cottage. The whole family were a delight to talk with and share what we are doing here on the property. We are thrill to have them back with several more times during their sons education at VMI. It's great making new friends like this.

Retreat to Vine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Vine Cottage is such a wonderful experience. It is both beautiful and historic as well as inviting and comfortable.

Tucked into a private area on the Forest Oaks Estate, this cottage provided a most perfect setting for our retreat. A large, well-supplied kitchen, a dining room table with room for all, and a living room with space and comfort for our workshop sessions all worked well for our retreat needs. Our retreaters were more then pleased with their rooms and beds, the porch and grounds, and the generous hospitality of our hosts. We all knew we were in a very special place that is well-maintained and loved. Walks on the property, a tour of the main house, and time with the horses more than enriched our retreat experiences.

Thank you Cliff and Chris for your exquisite care of Vine Cottage and for making this fabulous home available to us. It is so special to be there. See you in the Spring!

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

This historic home is one of the finest appointed VRBO homes I have ever stayed in. The owners have thought of everything. The beds are so comfortable and the linens are of the highest quality. The peaceful setting is unbeatable. The traffic from the interstate was noticeable, but still the place is first class. Thanks for an amazing weekend getaway for our VMI New Cadet Oath weekend!

Beautiful house and furnishings in a perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

Before writing my review, I reread all the reviews that have already been written. There is nothing to be said that hasn't been said already. Everything was perfect; the house is gorgeous and an ideal place for vacationing in the Natural Bridge area. I highly recommend a stay on this property.
