About Theresa Knight
The owners, a cyber security analyst and a romance novelist, live in an old farmhouse on the property. They have called Culpeper County home since their marriage 28 years ago and raised their four children there.
Theresa Knight purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Theresa Knight chose Catalpa
We bought the property because we have always wanted to renovate an old farmhouse and fell in love with this one the first time we saw it! We added the guest house three years later. Jameson's Mill once stood on our property along Muddy Run. The mill is shown on pre-Civil War maps. There is a 600-year-old White Oak that stands above the foundation stones of the old miller's cottage and a Black Walnut that a state forestry expert believes could be the largest in Virginia. It was "certainly the largest one" he'd ever seen.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage sits on 23 acres surrounded by cattle, sheep and horse farms. We love seeing the water birds, woodpeckers, deer, lightning bugs and dragon flies and consider ourselves fortunate to live in such a beautiful, unspoiled place!

Sports & Adventure Activities
My family stayed here for a weekend while we were in town for a family reunion. The home was absolutely beautiful in an idyllic setting! My 16 month old daughter had fun playing in the gorgeous garden while we sipped our coffees in the morning. Everything was clean and perfect- someone should pitch this gorgeous home to Southern Living! I can't recommend it enough and i hope to return sometime soon! Theresa has thought of everything- the house was very well stocked with toiletries, coffee, and toys for kids- very kid friendly! Loved it so much!
Thank you for the great review! I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you back soon!
Beautiful and private
If you are considering this Home Away rental, my advice is do not hesitate. I cannot think of one negative thing to say. The area was very pretty and peaceful. The house was comfortable, very nicely decorated and well stocked. There was a wonderful view from every window in the house and a cute furnished patio. We loved it and will definitely be back. Theresa is a wonderful host!
The cottage exceeded our expectations. The garden area was lovely. We would definitely go back.
The cottage was truly like a home away from home. It was comfortable and well-equipped. The serene and peaceful setting was just what we needed. The owners were delightful and they were excellent hosts. We can’t wait to go back.
Beautiful cottage, gracious hosts, perfect getaway
The cottage was the perfect low key getaway we were looking for. Theresa and Jeff were wonderful hosts and quick to answer questions.The cottage is beautiful and has all the amenities we needed. I hope we can make a return visit during warmer weather to explore the property. Not too far out of town so we enjoyed local restaurants and breweries.
The wonderful Knight Cottage exceeded all of our expectations. It is pristinely clean, comfortable, and furnished with exquisite taste. My two daughters and I enjoyed this getaway for a few days before Christmas. After a day of sightseeing, hiking, visiting wineries, and dining in some of Culpeper’s superb restaurants, we would look forward to relaxing together in the great room around the kitchen island before retiring to very comfortable beds. You cannot ask for more.
The owners are warm and genuine, responsive to requests and inquiries, and surprised us upon our arrival with the most marvelous and welcoming fruit basket.
The two lovely cats on the (gorgeous!) premises only added to our enjoyment.
We could not have had a better stay anywhere, and we recommend Knight Cottage whole heartedly.
Beautiful, peaceful, comfortable, tasteful.
My family of four loved spending our Thanksgiving 2017 in the cottage. Everything was just right, and Theresa and Jeff were wonderful hosts. The bonfire was really special, and we also fell in love with Juju (sp?).
Old Trade Brewery recently opened a couple of miles from the cottage. The views are gorgeous, the atmosphere casual. It is a great place to while away an afternoon with friends!
