Beautiful home in beautiful wine country

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage made us feel right at home while we were in town for our cousin’s son’s first birthday. It had everything we could have needed, and Anthony is incredibly reaponsive and accommodating. We had a wonderful weekend and will definitely keep in mind when we travel to charlottesville in the future.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of fun here. Feeding the animals, being out in the country but close to lots of historic places. Peanuts and carrots were provided to feed the animals!

Cottage Home and Animal Farm

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very nice in appearance and has lovely flowers and pasture. Enjoyed meeting and giving the animals a treat every afternoon. Close to Ash Lawn, Michie Tavern, Monticello, and Carter Mountain Orchard. Be aware the roads in this area have a lot of curves and the cottage is not visible from the road due to an enclosed wood fence and thus hard to find. GPS is a must.

Owner's Response: Dear Brenda and guests, Thank you for stay at our weekend home. We will take your comments under consideration and add more reflectors and sign posts to illuminate the entry to the horse shoe driveway from the road for future guests. Sincerely, Anthony LaPlaca

Charming, cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a very sweet little place, nestled in a lovely backdrop. Lots of amenities and the animals are a fun treat to visit with. Some hiccups with water and wifi, but it's expected in a country setting. Owner is easy to communicate with and I happily recommend this little retreat.

Owner's Response: Dear Kristen, We hope you will be able to stay again at our cottage for your future Virginia weekends. The WIFI should improve next year with a new cell tower in Albemarle County. We are hopeful since we are near the museums that our area will be the first in the upgrade of service. The cottage is on well water and not sure what you referred to but country living is not like the city. Sincerely, Anthony LaPlaca

Every bit as nice the second time

  • 5 of 5

stayed here 2 years ago,came back for another football game.The place is immaculate,every bit as nice as 2 years ago.Still lovely country setting for runs on quiet back roads,wineries very close,Monticello very close.Enjoyed the goats and mini donkeys,owner leaves treats to feed them.Nice location for Charlottesville events-close but quiet.Nice choice if you have young kids,they would love the animals.Owner Tony makes sure all goes well.If you had a vacation home in Charlottesville area,this is how you would want it to be.

Owner's Response: Dear Adam and family, We were happy you were able to stay again at our cottage and enjoy Charlottesville. We continue to improve the farm and enjoy the area being close to UVA and town yet feel secluded in the country. We do hope you will be able to stay again at different seasons to enjoy the local festivals and wine tours. Best, Tony LaPlaca

Charming and well appointed cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We loved the place. Enjoyed petting the animals. It is convenient and yet the roads can be confusing at night. The cottage had all the amenities and was very clean. The hosts prepared a very detailed notebook of restaurants and sites which was very helpful. The wifi was a little sketchy. A few of us could connect but others couldn't. But not a huge deal.

Owner's Response: Dear Cathy and family, Thank you for your comments. The country roads are windy and hilly and take some care, especially at night. The wifi is always spotty in the country--we are hopeful that Albemarle County has plans for a stronger Broadband for our area and with Monticello, Ash Lawn and all the wineries nearby- our area should be one of the first to receive the upgrade. We hope you will be able to stay again at our cottage in your future Virginia get-aways. Best, Anthony LaPlaca
