About Theresa Knight

The owners, a cyber security analyst and a romance novelist, live in an old farmhouse on the property. They have called Culpeper County home since their marriage 27 years ago and raised their four children there.

Theresa Knight purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Theresa Knight chose Virginia

We bought the property because we have always wanted to renovate an old farmhouse and fell in love with this one the first time we saw it! We added the guest house three years later. Jameson's Mill once stood on our property along Muddy Run. The mill is shown on pre-Civil War maps. There is a 600-year-old White Oak that stands above the foundation stones of the old miller's cottage and a Black Walnut that a state forestry expert believes could be the largest in Virginia. It was "certainly the largest one" he'd ever seen.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage sits on 23 acres surrounded by cattle, sheep and horse farms. We love seeing the water birds, woodpeckers, deer, lightning bugs and dragon flies and consider ourselves fortunate to live in such a beautiful, unspoiled place!

Notes:
This charming cottage dependency is sited on 23 acres in the rolling hills of northern Culpeper County. There are beautiful views of nature from every window. Located near wineries, boutique shopping, Civil War sites, reenactments, and other historic attractions such as Montpelier and Monticello, an hour from Washington, D.C., less than an hour from The University of Virginia in Charlottesville, minutes from Commonwealth Park. Special features of the property include the foundation stones of Jameson's Mill, a corn and grain mill that once operated on Muddy Run in the 1700s. The mill took its name from Revolutionary War Col. John Jameson who owned the property. He is famous for playing a role in the capture of Benedict Arnold. A magnificent 600-year-old white oak still shelters the remains of the miller's cottage. Many bullets, pottery shards, and other historic artifacts have been unearthed behind the main house, evidence of a Confederate encampment.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a weekend while we were in town for a family reunion. The home was absolutely beautiful in an idyllic setting! My 16 month old daughter had fun playing in the gorgeous garden while we sipped our coffees in the morning. Everything was clean and perfect- someone should pitch this gorgeous home to Southern Living! I can't recommend it enough and i hope to return sometime soon! Theresa has thought of everything- the house was very well stocked with toiletries, coffee, and toys for kids- very kid friendly! Loved it so much!

Tranquil Luxury Cottage Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous and well maintained property. It is so quiet and peaceful, great for star gazing, but minutes away from whatever you need in Culpeper. We rented this for a three generation girls' weekend. We visited UVA and Monticello one day and then Montpelier the next. Each was within an hour and an easy drive. It was nice to come home to this beautiful spot in the evening. Grabbing a bite in Culpeper was a treat and so close to the home. Theresa was a pro and was great from the moment we booked until the moment we left. We didn't need a thing because the house is so well appointed and her instructions are spot on, but if we had, I know that she would have helped. We are looking forward to an opportunity to return.

A charming, peaceful place to stay near Culpeper

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated, well appointed guest house in a quiet, pretty location. Theresa and Jeff were very responsive and helpful. My mother thoroughly enjoyed staying here during her 90th birthday celebrations nearby. (The antique double bed was too high for her to climb into and out of safely, but the king in the master bedroom was perfect!) Wish we'd had more time to enjoy the patio.
