Well worth the drive(way)!
If we wanted to dwell in a snug little house on a wooded mountainside (and, secretly, who doesn't?), it would look pretty much like "Beavers Hill Cottage." Surprisingly roomy, comfily appointed, and tidily kept, this was a very nice space to step into after a long day on the road. The bottle of proprietary wine on the counter was a classy touch. And it didn't hurt being lulled to sleep by the sound of the babbling brook beneath the window or awakened next morning by the lilting call of the wood thrush just outside. Not only were we loth to leave, but when we beheld by dawn's early light the steep driveway down which we had come in the dark, we feared we wouldn't be able to. But, alas, we made it out!
Thanks so much for your review....we enjoyed reading it and are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Come back to visit!

Wonderful Secluded Cabin
I just had a wonderful experience at Beaver's Hill Cottage. Three girlfriends and I had a nice girls weekend away. The beds were comfortable, and the house very clean, with every modern convenience. It is small, but has good, efficient use of space. It rained all weekend and the rain made the driveway somewhat tricky because it is so steep, but the owners are all over it and were very responsive throughout. I hope to return.
We are so glad you enjoyed Beavers Hill Cottage. It is very relaxing out there just listening to the sounds of nature while enjoying the modern conveniences of the cottage. Thanks again and we hope you come back to stay!

The house is well kept and meticulously clean. There was a warning about stink bugs and I was a little worried given I've seen out of control stink bugs, but I only saw one single bug inside the house. The house is surrounded by dense trees, which is nice from a privacy perspective, but I was hoping for a mountain view which you definitely do not get once the foliage comes out. The beds are a little firm for folks that don't sleep on their backs. The kitchen is tiny, but well appointed. While there is dish network, I don't think you should be planning to watch much live TV, as the few times I tried it, it would only work for a few minutes before losing connection to the satellite. There is an extensive DVD library available, lots of good movies there. There's central air, but it doesn't seem to run upstairs. We didn't have anyone staying on the second floor so I didn't try to figure out how to cool it off, but it was "attic hot" up there when I checked it out. The complimentary tasting to Fox Winery on the mountain was very nice, and owners also left a treat for the dog which was very thoughtful. The vineyard has a beautiful vista and a decent wine selection (although a little pricey for what you get IMHO).
Thank you for your review. We do have dish network, depending on the weather conditions/trees the HD channels can be a little spotty at times. We do not have any signal loss or issues with the non-HD channels. We are hoping that Comcast cable is coming out to the cottage soon, but we do not have any definite dates yet.
We do have central air in the cottage and our master bedroom is on the first floor. Since the cottage is a cape code style it does tend to get warmer upstairs during the warmer months. You can remedy this by closing the vents downstairs and turning the air conditioner to a cooler temperature while you're there.
Fox Meadow Winery is the closest winery to the cottage and the views alone are beautiful. Dan and Cheryl are wonderful and we really enjoy their wine. Most Virginia wineries charge similar amounts for their wine due to being a smaller farm winery.
We hope you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your review.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Very secluded and romantic, great for a couple. Loved being surrounded by the woods and wasn't too far from town. Isn't very well marked to be found but it is a very cute and cozy cottage with the peaceful surroundings of nature. Thank You!

Lovely Wooded Retreat
Quiet spot in the woods, with all of the comforts of home. Short distance from hwy & close to small town day trips or state parks. Sleep friendly beds, comfortable living room & modern kitchen. Woke up to sounds of the forest on the back deck & chipmunk family out front porch.
Just what we needed!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The peaceful nature of the cottage is nice to wake up to, especially if you got to witness a chipmunk family :)
Thank you for your review and we hope you come back to stay with us in the future!

Great private getaway spot for a quiet weekend
We were looking to spend a quiet weekend outside the city, and this place was perfect. You can only see one other house from the front porch (and it's a ways away!) and from the back yard and windows all you see is woods. Our crew included four adults and a toddler, and the space was perfect. Great modern kitchen, a nice grill on the porch, and the wood burning stove in the fireplace was a really nice touch! The hot tub was also a nice way to relax at night. The location is great, with a few good restaurants/cafes in the nearby town and some great wineries - highly recommend Chester Gap Cellars for a tasting! We will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for your nice review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We love Chester Gap cellars as well. There are beautiful views at a lot of the wineries out there which makes it that much more enjoyable.
Thanks again for staying and we hope you come back to stay in the future!
