Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Winchester - The Cozy Cottage of Winchester

Charming two bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cottage located on top of North Mountain in Winchester, Virginia. The views across the valley are spectacular. The Cozy Cottage s a great 'get-out-of-town' spot for Northern Virginia residents. So close to Washington, D.C. yet far enough away.

Check out a neat webpage and app, 'Old Town Winchester', for things to do, places to go, and great places to eat. (Available in your phone's App Store.)

Let me help you get away, very soon!

About The Cozy Cottage of Winchester * Stacy Bromley-Wenger

I grew up in the Shenandoah Valley so if there is something you want to do, just ask and I can help you find it!

The Cozy Cottage of Winchester * Stacy Bromley-Wenger purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Cozy Cottage of Winchester * Stacy Bromley-Wenger chose Shenandoah Valley

This charming little house has a way of relaxing you within seconds. You are away from everything yet not needing anything! I call the cottage 'My Serenity' because it truly is just that.

We successfully rented this sweetheart out as a vacation rental five years ago. Due to travel requirements for my job, I wasn't able to continue renting it as such. Our full-timers moved out in January and the renovations began immediately. Since our original page was deleted, I will be asking past guests to kindly post reviews.

What makes this cottage unique

Oh my gosh, stay just once and you can fill in this blank.

Wonderful, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage last minute due to a pipe bursting in my condo and my not having water for a few days. I really needed a getaway with my dogs where we could recharge after the stress of construction. Stacy was incredible at responding and making sure everything was in place for me. The cottage is gorgeous, cozy and the perfect place to relax. The enclosed decks were perfect for morning yoga and reading. The hot tub was a wonderful treat and so many thoughtful touches added to the experience. The cottage is well stocked with many items, which helped with last-minute planning. My dogs absolutely loved the decks and getting to go on walks!

Peaceful, stress-free stay

  • 5 of 5

Stacy is a lovely person and her cottage is amazing. We have stayed at cabins in many various locations around the country and I have to say that hers is by far the most well-equipped we have ever had the pleasure to visit. All of the basics are there, as well as "extra" thoughtful touches like bug spray, charcoal for the grill, and lotion. It's truly a home away from home experience. The location is completely secluded and serene and you are surrounded by nature at its best. The house is very well laid out with plenty of space for our family of 5 (4 humans + 1 dog). We loved the proximity to Winchester and all it had to offer. Thanks for a fantastic stay, Stacy! We'll be back. :)

"The Cozy Cottage" is awesome.

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the Cozy Cottage. It was bigger then we expected and had plenty to keeps the kids entertained. The view was fantastic. We felt like we were on top of the world. My husband especially liked the privacy and being away from everything. The kids liked the family room downstairs and in fact spent most of their time down there. We did spend some time sight seeing in Washington D.C. and at Gettysburg. They were only a couple hours drive from where we were staying. I like that there was a Wal-Mart pretty much right on the way to the cabin. We bought all the food we ate while we at the cabin at the Winchester Wal-mart. It was very nice not having to bring a bunch of food with us from Wisconsin. Our budget liked that we could eat at the cabin instead of having to eat at a restaurant like we would have had to do if we had to stay at a hotel. Also was very helpful that all the cooking pots and pans were there and even a smoothie blender for my morning smoothies. We are recommending this place to all our friends and family. Some day we hope to go back.

Excellent view and seclusion. Nature was our neighbor and it was more than relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Loved it! The solitude surrounded by nature was exactly what we needed. The perks of the game room, decks, hot tub were all above and beyond. They made sure we felt like we were at home in this cozy cottage.

Sipping a beer while staring down a deer was something we don't get to enjoy at home. If you enjoy a relaxed, surrounded by nature vaction then this IS the place for you.

Out on the deck, in the hot tub, while looking at the stars, you see the night sky like nature intended it to be seen.

We have discussed it often in the past 2 weeks since we visited and we agree we will return...often.

Best equipped home

  • 5 of 5

My best friend, toddler son, and I had the best getaway at the Cozy Cottage! We totally overpacked because the owners provide so much for their guests. The drinks in the fridge, games, and toys were my favorite touches. Anyone with kids knows how exciting it is to play with new toys, and my 2.5 year old had the time of his life in the basement. The beds and pillows were so comfortable, as was all the furniture. If you're looking for a relaxing, cozy getaway, this is the place! I will 100% come back! Thank you for such a lovely trip!

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 4 of my friends were looking for a fun place to spend Memorial Day weekend and this cabin definitely fit the bill! The owner is very good at keeping in contact and as soon as we walked into the place it was clear that it was well kept and clean, with a great set up between 3 floors! Because so much is provided (including linens, internet, cooking supplies, grill, condiments, coffee, etc) there wasn't a need to pack much, and there were plenty of forms of relaxation from the 2 decks, hot tub, games, and TV/cable. The view was amazing and the cabin is located in a private area on top of the mountain. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer and I hope I can return soon! Thanks so much for letting us stay!

So you want to get away for a weekend? You send an inquiry and anxiously await an answer. I will always do my best to keep reservations on a first-come first-serve basis. However, inquiries do not reserve a property. Please keep in mind that HomeAway is a customer driven system. If another customer reserves the property with a payment, you could easily lose your slot if the owner accepts the payment. As a property owner, I do my best to watch for such instances however I am human after all...and mistakes can happen.

Along the lines of being human; accidents happen. However, when these accidents happen it can halt future reservations or cancel another renter's reservation. Due to recent damages to our home, we feel it is necessary to require a Property Damage Protection Policy. The policy protects both of us in the event of an accident.

The cleaning fee is non-refundable. This does not suggest for you to not pick up after yourself. The $75 fee is quite modest as it barely covers to cost of a two person crew. Please do not make it difficult to turn the house over for the next set of guests. Imagine your disappointment if you were the arriving guests after a destructive party weekend. The cleaning crew will need to delay your entry until the house is ready.

I have often been asked about discounts. As a wife of a veteran and the child of a police officer, I do understand your request. However, our rates are based on other homes' rental rates and our operating expenses. As the potential renter, please advise me if your budget does not afford the full amount up front. I will gladly accept an installment plan of up to three payments. I will also refund your money should you change your mind prior to your stay.

With all of that said....

Isn't it time to get away?!
