Over the last thirty years we have traveled extensively and we would love to host you in our cottage because..... there's no place like 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!

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.

Charming is the right word!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, the cottage was wonderful with plenty of room for a big family. We had 3 little grandbabies with us, they loved the animals right outside our doorstep! We enjoyed being able to explore the property and have an evening by the fire pit! So many extras, we loved it!

We loved our stay at Bent Tree Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Sonja and Andre are the perfect hosts. They are friendly, helpful and keep their property looking spectacular. The cottage is decorated so sweetly and has everything you need in it. The beds are super comfy, and you feel right at home once you get there. We cannot rate them high enough . To top things off she greeted us with warm homemade bread and fresh honey from their bees. I am hoping we get back there soon. Thank you Andre and Sonja for making our stay wonderful! Did I mention the miniature horses? They tipped the scales for me ... friendly and cute ;)
