The upstairs features a large bedroom with a very comfortable Queen-sized bed adjoining an over-sized full bath. This home is ready for you to enjoy - stay a while - use the typewriter!! Begin the story . . . . .

Nice, quiet place

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice place in the town of Middleburg. It is in a great location because you can walk to the restaurants, etc...and don't need a car once you are there to get around the town. The place is very quiet which is also nice. I found it to be clean and I appreciated that the owner allowed me to have my small, house trained dogs there with me. There is one bedroom and one huge bathroom upstairs, a smaller half bath downstairs. It was the perfect size for 2 people (and 2 small dogs). As the bedroom is upstairs that would need to be taken into consideration if there is a guest who has difficulty with stairs. There is a couch downstairs that I think could be used to sleep on though we didn't need to do that. There is also a back yard and off-street parking which is nice (although in general parking in Middleburg did not appear to be an issue). The owner seems to be very caring and is very responsive. All in all, a good place to stay if you are looking to stay in that area.

Lovely home in great location but a few things to note

  • 3 of 5

The host is an absolute pleasure and very responsive. I did wish I knew a few things before booking: 1) the kitchen is not clean and is therefore, very much not conducive to cooking anything; 2) though the floors were overall clean, it is clear that they had not been dusted in quite some time--we noticed many clumps of hair/dust scattered sporadically throughout the floors; 3) the couch/fouton/daybed on the first floor is rather uncomfortable, making it unenjoyable to watch movies/shows on the television, which has plastic tape on the screen; 4) the shower has about 10 minutes of hot water and it is very difficult to use--you feel as though you are in a cave with the shower curtains touching you on every side--it is also difficult to get in and out of the shower. The bed was clean and comfortable and you can't beat the location -- it is just important to note that it's not the type of home that is cozy where you'd want to curl up with a book/movie -- it's a great place to stay if you don't plan on cooking or hanging out at home.

This cottage is in the ideal location in the heart of downtown Middleburg. We were pleasently surprised at how much space the cottage and back yard had to offer. Also, Michael was very responsive and a pleasure to communicate with!

The home was in a great location and Michael was a fantastic host! The home was the perfect size for me and my dog and it had a great backyard. You can walk to all of the quaint shops and restaurants which was a great bonus. I look forward to my next stay!

The cottage was quirky and adorable! The location was ideal! A great break!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the cottage was spotlessly clean and well appointed. Bedding, linens, etc were all comfortable and the kitchen was appointed with everything we needed. The pictures online are an accurate description of this great space, and the landlord was a pleasure to work with. The location is within easy walking distance of many Middleburg amenities. We very much enjoyed our stay!
