Very charming and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well appointed and very charming. Easy to work with the owner who couldn’t have been more responsive and flexible. Bed was comfortable. We stayed on a rainy day and the house had some dampness/mustiness.

Charm, Comfort, Convenience--all in one!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the Writer's Cottage charming and clean as a whistle but it has all the amenities you could wish for to make your stay comfortable. The host, Michael, welcomed us with a fruit basket and wine--very generous of him and much appreciated. He's clearly interested in making his guests comfortable and giving them a lovely experience of small town life. And if you like a bit of romantic charm, the cottage has that in spades. We couldn't get over the size of the master bath--bigger than our dining room in Brooklyn. If you have a dog, the backyard has plenty of space for him/her to run off energy. Middleburg itself offers lots of interesting shopping--clothes and antiques mostly--and there are a number of good places to eat, have coffee, buy dessert. And then there's the countryside itself: gorgeous rolling hills, places to take your dog for proper exercise, and areas for gentle hiking all within an easy drive. This is horse country, and the local farms dotting the landscape are beautiful. We didn't have time over Thanksgiving to visit the nearby wineries but will on our next trip. In short, we highly recommend the Writer's Cottage for that special getaway.

Qintessential Middleburg

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely wonderfull! It was filled with foxes and hunting books and cleaver art. The bed was very comfortable and the master bathroom was luxurious. The kitchen is fully outfitted and the rooms fill with sunlight. It was a fantastic place to spend a week.
