    Beautiful property, beautiful location, and nice little town nearby. Less than three hours from DC, but totally isolated. Right between Charlottesville and the mountains, and surrounded by wine, beer, cider, and history. Cottage felt like a home and our hosts were very responsive yet completely invisible. Perfect getaway for us and we will be back.

    Absolutely loved staying at this cottage. The location is convenient to Scottsville with it's brew pub and many of Virginia's historic sites, including it's own. The cottage location on a bluff overlooking the James River and with only one neighbor made it quiet and exclusive. The only thing it doesn't overlook are all the details which the owners have given attention to so that our stay only required us to bring groceries. We hope to return to enjoy many of the things we could not take advantage of on this our first time. Thank you for a great stay.

    My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary. Everything was wonderful. The views and setting are beautiful and the cottage is the perfect size for a couple. Scottsville is a quick drive from the house and we really enjoyed the town.

    Beautiful setting above/along the James River. The house is really great... spacious with lots of windows and light! The views breathtaking. The kitchen complete. The dishwasher really does the job! And the AC keeps the temp and humidity just right! This is a great find. Give it a shot! Only drawback is the spotty cell service. However, if you have a smart phone, set it to wifi-calling and you are good to go. The wifi works well!

    It was relaxing. The owners were very pleasant & nice people. There is not much to do in Scottsville. The James Tavern was very nice & very good food. We grilled the other nights we were there. If you want to get away from everything here is the place. But be sure you use bug spay to put on yourself because it is in the woods & the river mosquitos & bugs. The house was clean & comfortable. The pictures of the house are exactly what you see. We just wish some of the trees/srubs closer down were cut lower so we could see more of the river.

    Convenient to Charlottesville, Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Parkway. Accomodations were wonderful and clean, beautifully decorated, everything you may need is included. Kitchen is completely outfitted for cooking/dining in if you wish. Master bed is comfy, even pull-out sofa bed in living room was comfy once memory foam mattress topper (provided) was added. This is the best vacation home I have ever rented by far (and I have rented a lot!). Quiet, secluded area with lovely natural surroundings and beautiful views of the James River. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, hope to get back to this gem one day! PS-The visits by "Miss Kitty" were among the highlights of our trip :)

    We arrived fairly early before check in and called the owner and was encouraged to go ahead and check in early. The place was clean and well stocked with anything you may need. We always bring extra towels, wash cloth, hand towels dishwashing detergent, clothes detergent, and hand soap and we never had to unpack those items. It was clean and comfortable. The bed was great in so that we have decided to buy a new bed when we got home. It was super convenient to everything, Monticello's , Charlottesville, Shenandoah and blue ridge parkway. 20 minute ride and you are on a major highway to go in either direction. We always cook when we stay at a Homeaway so restaurants are not a big deal. Although we decided to get carry out at Amacis Italian restaurant 5 mins away, and it was so delicious. If you needed any groceries Foodlion was a few mins away!! All in all it was a great vacation with all the hiking it was wonderful to come back to the house with all the great views. Thank you Teresa for allowing us to stay at you place!! Oh yes and the bedside candy was a real treat for my husband!!??

    This property is incredibly clean and the kitchen well stocked...no locked closets forcing you to buy a box of trash can liners, everything you need is there for use during your stay. Unfortunately for 2 old timers (51 & 54) who are used to a heavenly king sized bed at home, we found sleeping very problematic on the queen sized bed. The mattress is very firm (something neither of us found comfortable) but we were able to supplement the mattress with a memory foam mattress cover found in the closet that helped enormously. The only thing we couldn't remedy was that the sofa was not a "curl-up-on-a-rainy-day-and-read" comfy sofa although it served it's purpose. In the morning we would take our coffee on the covered deck, listening to the wild turkey, owls and the birds calling to one another. Also, when we first arrived I found that there was not pitcher for sweet tea and within minutes the owners delivered one! :) All in all, we enjoyed the property immensely but we have both decided that in the future, if we cannot find a king sized bed then back to the hotels we will go. I would have given this property 5 stars if not for the bed.

    My husband and I have wanted to see Monticello for a long time and he's never been to Shenandoah National Forest so we wanted to find a mutual place to stay. We are big hikers as well. Finding this place was a dream and renting it was painless. The house was a fantastic, comfortable place to stay. What a warm welcome to come back to after an adventurous day of hiking and sightseeing. Secluded, beautiful views. We didn't need to bring anything but food and clothes because it had everything. The deck every morning for coffee and evening toddies was wonderful.

    Thank you,

    We recently stayed at this home for 5 days. It was the most relaxing part of our trip. The view of the James River and the hillside from the deck was wonderful. The house is very open, clean and the kitchen is stocked with every utensil and pan you would ever need. The house is set back from the road so it is very quiet at night. We even saw fireflies! The small town of Scottsville is less than 2 miles away. It has a great coffee shop and a couple of good restaurants. We did not spend time in Charlottesville because we had everything we needed in Scottsville. It is a good location for visiting Montpelier, Monticello and the nearby wineries.

    We would recommend this place for someone who wants to relax in the country!

    The cabin was beautiful, bathtub humongous, well stocked kit heck, extra blanket and pillows, there was absolutely nothing we could have needed that wasn't already there. The cicadas would sing to the beautiful morning sunshine and at night the frogs would sing to the moon while we payed in the grass and stargazed. With the James River running right next to the cabin, you could ask for nothing more. It was so serene and peaceful I didn't want to leave!!!!!!

    We stayed at this lovely cottage in the woods over a long weekend in order to visit Monticello and other historic sites around Charlottesville. It was squeaky clean, bright, welcoming and had every last thing we could've needed. The best equipped on-line rental we've ever had the fortune to reserve. Several restaurants are located in nearby Scottville and thus we didn't have to drive into higher traffic areas in order to enjoy a good meal. Would definitely recommend it!
