About this listing

We built this cottage on our property 16 years ago as a mother in law cottage.We now enjoy sharing it with people looking for a little peace and quiet in the Virginia countryside. We are almost within walking distance of Montpelier, 5 miles from the town of Orange, and 10 miles to Woodberry Forest School. Charlottesville is about 25 miles/35 minutes away.
We welcome well behaved dogs at no extra charge.

The space

You are welcome to roam around our 4+acres, take a walk through the woods on our frisbee golf course, or even play a round! If you're a hearty soul you could even walk to Montpelier! There are chairs out in the yard for star-gazing, or hanging out with your dogs, or with our dog-ambassador Snowy.

Guest access

Of note, there is NO internet. Most of our guests get good phone service and are able to use their own data plans. If you have something hearty you need to download or print you are welcome to come over to our house to do so.

My grown daughter and a friend needed somewhere close to a local wedding. This was prefect! Friendly, warm, inviting, cozy. Definitely family friendly. If I or my family are ever nearby again, we will be back!

The roost is an adorable place perfect for a weekend get away. Very clean and close to many of the attractions in Orange and the surrounding towns. Cynthia was an awesome host and this place is highly recommended.

The Roost (cottage) was very peaceful, clean, quite and was equipped with all the amenities like being in our own home, and simply and beautifully decorated. Cynthia and Gary are very friendly and polite people, it felt like we have always known them. The stay was so great we are planning to return in January. I would like to also mention, being that we were able to bring our dog Bonnie and just as we are animal lovers so are Cynthia and Gary. One more thing I would like to add is how beatiful the scenery is. I would recommend the Roost to anyone visiting the area.

Our stay at the Roost was incredible! Cynthia was so easy to communicate with about check in and check out procedures and made us feel right at home. Little touches like arriving to a fridge containing farm fresh eggs and blueberries made the stay absolutely spectacular. The place was spotless and the beds were super comfy! The Roost was the perfect weekend getaway for our group of 4 ladies looking to reunite in the idyllic landscapes of Orange VA. I would highly recommend staying at the Roost to anyone! Thank you Cynthia!

The Roost was a great getaway for my dog and me. The place was extremely clean and well kept and Cynthia was extremely helpful and accommodating. My dog had an amazing time walking through the trails and in the fields. I was hoping to "tune out" for a couple days and it was great for that

The Roost is absolutely charming! Cynthia is a gracious hostess adding little touches that really made me and my dogs feel totally welcome and comfortable at her sweet cottage in the most beautiful and tranquil setting.

My husband and I have built a wonderful home on Chicken Mountain. Once we had an extended family but now we are empty -nesters.
We love spending time outdoors and love skiing in Utah and Montana with our children and friends. We always stay in airbnb style places and find it's the best way to travel!
