The area is close to city of Charlottesville but tucked in the country hillside near Monticello, Highlands - Ash Lawn, Morven and numerous wineries and close to town of Scottsville along the historic James River with restaurants and shops.

Exceeded our expectations. This is a lovely cottage nestled close to wineries and a short drive to downtown Charlottesville. Waking up to the two goats who were always glad to see us was an added bonus. And we can’t forget Dodger and Dora, the two miniature donkeys. We took a walk in the field and they followed us around. Charming Kitchen. One of the best kitchens we have encountered on VRBO. Great pots and pans and everything you need for a great stay! We definitely will be back!
Great Weekend Get Away!
This was our 4th year staying here and my wife my daughter and I love it. It is great during the Fall season with so many different colors. Very cozy and close enough Charlottesville. You feel like you live in the country with a farm. Tony the owner is a great host and makes sure you have everything needed to enjoy your stay. We will be booking soon for next Fall.
Great Country Cottage Getaway
It was a great country cottage getaway. The house was very nice and Tony was extremely accommodating as we had to change our check in date. Our little boy loved feeding the goats and donkeys each morning. It is about a 10 minute drive to Mt. Ida Reserve winery/restaurant which we also recommend. All in all, great weekend.
We are glad your weekend worked out with your work schedule and that your son was able to enjoy our animals. Mt. Ida is such a great place to explore whether it's wine tasting or a full dinner. They often host special seasonal events.
All the Best,
weekend stay at the cottage
We had a great weekend staying at this cottage. Everything we could have needed was provided, and everything was very clean. We really enjoyed the opportunity to feed treats to the goats and donkeys.
Hi Kathryn and family,
We are delighted you were able to enjoy our cottage and farm friends. Hope you can stay again when you are back in our area.
Visit to Charlottesville area
We had a wonderful time during our stay. The property was well equipped and met all of our needs. The goats were fun to greet and feed treats to. Nearby Mount Ida was a nice find with a restaurant, tasting area, and gorgeous views.
Dear Kristin and Family,
So glad you were able to enjoy our cottage and discover Mount Ida's Taphouse/Winery nearby. We enjoy visiting there especially outside at sunset. Hope you will be able to stay again at the farm on your next visit in the area.
It would have been lovely
I had to cancel my stay at the last minute because my travel companion had a family emergency. I therefore have no first-hand knowledge of the property itself. This website requires a rating for each category in order to be able to submit the form, and does not allow N/A.
However, the property owner was very nice and understanding about the whole situation and offered a credit toward a future stay. I would certainly take him up on it.
