The Perfect Retreat!
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!

It was so nice to have Cheri and her niece. They left the cottage very nice and their communication was wonderful. Would love to have them return.
Sonya and hubby we're wonderful. The cottage was charming and well supplied. Delightful stay.
We were in town for a.family wedding and the cottage and farm was a great gathering place for all the young . children and parents. Lovely place to stay in Roanoke.
Excellent hospitality and top notch
We came to Roanoke/Salem for the Interstate Softball Tournament. We decided to rent a house vs. staying at a noisy hotel filled with ball players. We wanted to have a getaway that was relaxing. We were not disappointed. We were treated with fresh homemade bread and honey from their farm. They were very hospitable and a blessing to us during our stay. We would recommend their rental to all our friends!
We so enjoyed having this nice couple visit our farm. Would love to have them back if they are visiting again. Very respectful of our home and left everything very nice.
Wonderful place for young kids.
We planned this vacation with our son, daughter in law and our two year old grandson. Our grandson absolutely loved his stay among the many animals; miniature horses, chickens and goats. He also loved chasing balls around the tennis court. The cottage was wonderful for a two year old, with a pack and play, kids books and toys. Plus the cottage was very comfortable for all the adults. Roanoke also has great places to take kids such as the transportation museum and the children's museum. I highly recommend this charming cottage as a vacation spot for those with young children.
Perfect setting for a weekend with our adult children!
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!!!
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 !!
We are very central to most everything. Roanoke airport is 7.4 miles from our city farm. Nearest mall is less than 5 miles. We are 5 miles from downtown Roanoke were there are lots of restaurants and there's much to do.
