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)

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!

Lovely stay. Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful setting in the middle of Roanoke area. Attentive hosts to a lovely cottage. Four of us attending conference in the area. This was much preferred over a hotel room!

A Unique Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Why stay in a boring hotel when you can stay in a cozy guest cottage on a miniature horse farm? This place is exactly why we use VRBO.com when we go on vacation! Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, space to spread out and relax. Plus you wake up looking at fields and horses, not a parking lot of cars. The owners were very friendly and brought us a fresh-baked loaf of bread and a jar of honey from their bees. It was a nice place to land each night after "touristing" in Roanoke all day. Civilization is only 5 minutes away - grocery store, restaurants, shopping, etc. But it was nice to just sit and enjoy the peace and quiet.
