The Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The Bent Tree Cottage was the absolute perfect retreat for my niece and I to spend a bonding weekend together. She drove from TN and I drove from MD, meeting half-way at Sonya and Andre's cottage. From the very moment we each pulled up the long driveway we were in love! The property is gorgeous, the farm animals are adorable, and the hosts are incredibly attentive. The cottage is very tastefully decorated, comfortable and has all the amenities you could possibly think of - there was even a pizza cutter available for us! :) There wasn't a single thing we needed that wasn't available for us. We really enjoyed walks around the farm, petting the animals and eating fresh apples, figs, and grapes right off the vine! Oh, and the fresh baked bread and honey from the hives right there on the farm were such a nice treat! YUM! The fire pit was really cozy too. I look forward to returning for some more retreats with the girls and even a romantic retreat with my fiance. Thank you so much for everything, Sonya and Andre! Cheri (Baltimore, MD) & Nicole (Severville, TN)

Perfect setting for a weekend with our adult children!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Roanoke my adult children could ru. The Footlevelers half marathon. Bent Tree Farm was a wonderful place for us to meet and enjoy all the animals and wonderful place Sonya and Andre have created. There is lots of privacy and yet you are so close to downtown Roanoke. We look forward to returning soon!

Exceeded our expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two-year-old daughter stay there for two weeks ( I came up on weekends) so she could Participate in an intensive therapy session. Anyways, we felt like we were family! nice welcoming family...😀?. the owners, Sonya and Andre, gave us honey from their local beehive on the farm and also made us delicious homemade bread. They were so gracious to let us roam the whole 12 acres and interact with all the animals the goats chickens and miniature horses . It is tough trying to entertain a two-year-old so this place is ideal for kids but also could be for romantic getaway as well ! We will surely be coming back very soon!! it was so beautiful the mountains in the back drop ... what made this property special was really the kindness of the owners who made us feel special and that we were home !!

Gracious Host, Great Professionalism

  • 5 of 5

Sonya has shown time and again what thoughtful and understanding hosts she and her husband can be. After scheduling our trip we needed to change our plans twice for reasons beyond our control (1. our son's health 2. being stranded by a Springtime snow storm). They kindly changed our dates the first time, and then offered to host us at a future date when we were unable to drive due to the weather. In each interaction with Sonya, she has been courteous and professional which surely indicates that this is a rental property run with the guest's best experience in mind. I can't wait to actually get there to enjoy the family vacation that is, quite honestly, being saved by this couple.
