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)

The cottage was cozy and comfortable in a convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bent Tree Cottage when we went to Salem to visit our son at Roanoke College. Sonya greeted us with warm bread and their home made honey. She made us feel at welcome and at home. They had new baby goats and Andre let us feed them their bottles! Staying at the cottage was so much better than staying at a hotel. We would stay there again.

Awesome place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

Ideal place for our BFF weekend! Every detail of this lovely cottage has been well thought out, and is welcoming to guests...the surroundings are so peaceful, and serene. Sonya and Andre were excellent hosts. We could not have asked for a more perfect place to spend our weekend together. The warm bread and honey were icing on the cake. Thank you so much for making us feel welcomed and at home!

Great place for a get away.

  • 5 of 5

The place was immaculate and comfortable. We had a great time here. Hot tub was very nice. Wish we could have used the fire pit but the weather was not on our side. Inside was super. Every small detail was thought of by the owners, who are also great people. Would stay here again!
