Host was wonderful. Cottage bueatiful!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, quiet location near wineries, as well as a very short drive to Charlottesville. Simon, the host, was very welcoming and warm. He had a fresh carton of orange juice and a quart of milk in the fridge along with tasty snacks. The cottage was so comfy and aesthetically charming. Looking out at the English gardens as we sipped our coffee of coffee was a great way to start the day. When we return to this area we will definitely stay here!

Getaway in the Virginia Countryside

A wonderful home base to explore Charlottesville, Monticello, and the Virginia wine country. Very comfortable cottage, well stocked with snacks, and Simon was a gracious host. The house is surrounded by lovely gardens, and the property is very peaceful. I look forward to a return trip!!

Absolutely charming cottage, well appointed and Simon is a delightful host.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for exploring Charlottesville and the beautiful area. The extras provided by the host made our stay extra special. We hope to return and extend our stay.... the listing is accurate as are the photos of the property. I found it to be even better than described.... a cozy and welcoming retreat! Many thanks to Simon for being the perfect host.

Lovely, relaxing, wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and I had a wonderful three days. The beds and linens were super comfortable. The apartment was roomy and private. The artwork on the walls was lovely. The pantry was stocked will all kinds of snacks, coffee/tea, water, and fresh fruit. The gardens and peaceful rural setting was relaxing and quiet, which is just what we needed after sight-seeing and being on our feet for 6-8 hours each day. But most of all, Simon was a gracious, generous, and thoughtful host. I look forward to seeing him (and his two dogs: Snowy and Pebbles) the next time I go to Charlottesville.
