Great location90% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

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. Our dog ambassador Snowy, our 13 year old jack Russell mix will greet you !

Beautiful and spacious cottage with good amenities. Cynthia is a great host and she provides us good information of local restaurants and markets. The area around Orange county is beautiful with plenty wineries. Short driving distance to Charlottesville.
