Perfect for a restful stay
This gem of a home has all that you could need. Comfortable and quiet on the edge of a large garden. We enjoyed our stay and left fully recuperated.
A Unique & Special Place
This beautiful, private, and peaceful cottage is not for everyone. It was great for me and my best friend. There is no TV, no radio, no microwave - instead it offers quiet - to be used as one needs - probably not so much for the fun and party seeker. It was perfect for me and friend - we decided to move in together on a test run and she came home with me. The quiet space gave us time to talk to each other and to really listen to each other - could be the start of something good. On the other hand, one potentially dangerous finding was the bath and shower situation. At least for older guests, it was quite difficult to get into the bath which was also the shower and the shower was not so good. I believe the owners have been alerted to this - they seem to be really wonderful people and I'm sure they will check into it.
Dear David, So happy for you both. Yes, our Carriage House is Quiet and Peaceful. Thank You both for staying at the CH.
Our place is not a party place for those that are looking to party with friends. It is a Retreat from the rat race/fast pace of life. To help folks reset, retreat & refresh.
We kept the bathtub because it is the charming old tub when I bought the property 34 years ago.
We show photos of the tub in our photos on this site.
We haven't had any complaints about the tub or shower head in all the years we have rented out our place. But, we will look into the shower head and see what we can do about this.
Part of the charm is the bathtub for many folks and we have had many, many older, wiser folks stay with us and loved our place.
Sorry you had a difficult time. Hope to see you both when the Zen Gardens are at the fullest. Blessings to you both, Ramana & John
Quaint, well-maintained cottage in Winchester
Renovated carriage house is quaint, clean & well maintained. The surrounding 2-acre property boasts mature trees, vegetable garden, and peaceful settings. Ramana and John are gracious hosts and provided a tour of the property and fresh, organic fruit basket. They are very respectful of your privacy. The cottage consists of 4 room, screened porch and the property provides well water and a compost bin. It is as advertised on the web page. Easy access to shopping, activities and Shenandoah National Park. Peaceful setting, especially the screened front porch. Internet to the Carriage home is an extension from the main house and is adequate for email and basic internet searches. All the garden staff are friendly and respectful. Wishing Ramana and John continued blessings.
Perfect the Second Time Around
This was the second time we have stayed at Just Like Heaven....We were super busy dealing with buying a new house, so we weren't around the cottage too much. But, when we were there, it was just like a home away from home for us. Even though it was summer, it was cool enough for us to use the electric fireplace on a couple of nights. That was a nice addition to the cottage. Thank you so much for providing such a great place to stay!!!
We truly loved having our guests stay with us for the second time! They were respectful, clean & peaceful. They loved our new addition we put in the past winter months (gas fireplace) even in the beginning of summer when some of the nights were cooler. You can turn on the flames without the heat which makes for a romantic evening.
Thank You once again for staying on the property in our early 1920's Carriage House. I 'm so happy you found a place to buy in the area. Have fun!
Blessings, Ramana & John
Very serene and peaceful visit. The House was very cozy and perfect for two.
Thank You once again for staying at our Carriage House. The fireplace was just put in the last winter for folks to enjoy during the chilly season. So happy you enjoyed yourselves. Blessings, Ramana & John
The name says it all!
The "Just Like Heaven Carriage and Tea House" is indeed heavenly. As you approach the Main house, we spotted the Tibetan Prayer flags and right away, we knew this was going to be special place we would never forget. The gardens surrounding the buildings are very well-kept and simply beautiful. Several places to sit, reflect and just "be". The carriage house is very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need. Ramana is a most gracious host and sees to every little detail including fresh cut flowers in every room and organic coffee in the kitchen. We loved staying at the Just Like Heaven Carriage House and recommend it to anyone looking for a sincere and cathartic experience.
