Unplug & rewind in this fabulous cottage. Beautiful mountain setting on small, historical farm in the heart of the Rockfish Valley Historical district, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Heart of Virginia wine country, and an easy walk to Devil's Backbone Brewery and Bold Rock Cidery. 5 min drive to Wintergreen. Private cedar hot tub & adorable hens. Clean, private space that makes physical distancing positively fun! High speed fiber internet. Walking trails accessible by foot.

Die Unterkunft
Writer/painter couple from Memphis moved back to the land but brought some of the city's blue suede style with them-- We designed this cottage to respect the history of the farm and neighborhood, while keeping it kitschy and cheerful. It's built of locally salvaged materials and sustainably forested Virginia timber and hosts a rotating selection of original art. Private, stylish, and comfortable-- A total getaway!

In light of Covid-19, we want to emphasize that we are still accepting bookings— we think this is the ideal place to hunker down (which is why we moved our family here). We designed the space to be easy to clean— and we clean and disinfect it carefully between bookings. (We have earned the Airbnb badge for cleanliness during Covid). The cottage is quite private, and it makes social distancing easy, without feeling contained: you have land to roam, and trails within walking distance. Our water is pure and delicious, and the fiber internet is fast. And, hand-built cedar hot tub!

Our local breweries and farms have elegantly adjusted to the current changes, and the breweries & cideries & restaurants are providing drive through food and beverage service, and our wineries are also providing pick up. Our local farmers have made it easy to order wonderful local meat, produce, dairy, and delicious freshly baked breads & locally roasted organic coffee— all to picked up at our Community Center a few minutes from the cottage. Our local farmer's market has re-opened, with socially-distanced shopping Saturday mornings. Our local grocery is stocked, and our local wine shop will bend over backwards to package gourmet meals with just the right bottle. We actually think the local eating options have improved since March.

We are privileging guest requests who ask for longer bookings, and we encourage you to request a reservation rather than instant book so we can make sure it’s a good fit for all of us.

The cottage is an airy, vaulted space with a master bedroom with organic latex queen bed, a bathroom with an antique claw-foot tub and antique stained-glass windows, and a sleeping loft with a double bed of bamboo-based memory foam. A fifth guest can be accommodated in the day bed in the living room. (The sleeping loft opens to the living room so the space is ideal for a family group, or two couples who like each other very much.)

The lovely kitchen is stocked with quality basics and cocktail necessities-- including ice bucket and crusher-- and you'll have fresh eggs from our hens, yogurt and milk, our delicious homemade granola (back by popular demand!) and locally roasted coffee waiting for you. The covered porch and large deck open to beautiful views of mountains and a majestic 200+ year old White Oak tree. The comfortable living room has a tiny wood-burning stove (we provide wood), day bed, and is stocked with board games, puzzles, and books for both children and adults.

The vaulted covered porch houses a hand-built cedar hot tub, as well as a table for outdoor dining and a Komodo-style grill/smoker.

We use OKOtex certified European linen and organic cotton sheets in the beds, provide environmentally-conscious cleaning and bath products (including our homemade soaps), and use sustainable WGAC paper products. (If you prefer to travel with your own bed-linens, please let us know and we will leave the beds unmade). Our well water is pure and delicious, so you can leave the bottled water at home. We also provide recycling and composting containers.

Fiber internet lets you taste the work-from-farm dream! You’ll enjoy fast wireless internet at the cottage. A Roku TV is provided, so you can log into your account to stream your subscriptions or have us log you in to ours. A curated collection of farm products are also available to purchase in our micro-store.

Zugang für Gäste
The cottage is on a 19th C. organically farmed homestead, about 900 feet above the valley. Watch wild turkeys, red foxes, and songbirds off the porch in the early morning. You’ll enjoy easy access to our hens (no roosters-- we like sleeping in too!). We're always happy to let children help feed the hens. We also have plenty of space to store your gear--skis, snowboards, canoes, backpacks, kayaks, hang-gliders, etc.

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
The cottage is air-conditioned by a small unit in the master bedroom, but generally it doesn't need it-- it stays very cool due to its position by a hill and its state-of-the-art insulated roof panels. Big windows, ceiling fans, and area fans mean you can let the fresh air in. The loft bedroom will get warmer than the rest of the house on very hot summer days.

We cannot promise that your cell carrier will cover you here. Many do, but not all. Please be aware of your coverage if that's an issue for you. The cottage does have high speed fiber internet.

The bathroom has a generous antique claw foot tub with a handheld shower attachment-- not a stand-up shower.

If you're booking last minute, know that we do keep the calendar up-to-date, so you can trust the availability you see here. If you are interested in a longer stay (multiple weeks or months, which may not be reflected in the calendar) please contact us— we are privileging longer stays to help prevent the spread of Corona virus.

Our most satisfied guests seem to be couples or families with small children-- please be aware the cottage is just that-- a cottage. Those seeking suburban accommodations will perhaps be happier at the ski resort. But those seeking stylish simplicity & quiet will be very happy here.

We have elected not to use carcinogenic chemicals for insect mitigation because we care deeply about our water quality and your health and safety— these mean so much more to us than the inconvenience of some ladybugs in the windows. We live in the mountains, and humans are the minority species here! We also use only organic farming practices outside. Because of this, the property should be comfortable for people with chemical sensitivities. We use Charlie’s Soap for laundry, and we make or buy bulk natural soaps and cleaning products— Urban dwellers may be surprised to see some insects inside, depending on the season. We vacuum these bugs away, and a lightweight vacuum is provided for guests to do the same.

We are certified by Airbnb as meeting their highest standards of cleanliness and we are disinfecting the space and allowing rest days between bookings. We have also gone beyond their recommendations and have taken the most precautions possible with bed-linens: We encase mattresses & bed pillows in waterproof cases, and we are rotating pillows so that guests will never sleep on a pillow that hasn't been disinfected and set aside to rest for at least a week. We wash and rest mattress pads, linens, and towels too, so that you can rest easy that every possible precaution has been taken to assure your safety.

Lage

Nellysford, Virginia, Vereinigte Staaten

Located in a friendly, diverse neighborhood of wineries, breweries, sustainable farms, and artisans, there are always interesting things to see, listen to, and consume.

Despite its privacy, the cottage is only a 5-10 minute walk (.3 miles) to Devil's Backbone Brewing Company and restaurant and a mile walk on public footpaths to Bold Rock Cidery and Brew Pub (tastings and tours), and 2.5 miles to Wild Wolf Brewery and Restaurant. Many, many other wineries and breweries within a short drive. We're located close to the restaurants of Nellysford, 25 minutes from Waynesboro and its splendid Kline's ice cream, (And large grocery stores providing grocery pickup options) and only 35 minutes from Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. And only a three minute drive to The Blue Ridge Pig (an acclaimed BBQ joint), and Basic Necessities, a wine bistro which also stocks delicious artisan breads, pastry, and cheese.

Pick apples, peaches, berries, or pumpkins at one of the many local farms. Drop by our bountiful Saturday's farmer's market. Buy local organic breads from 3 different bakeries. Visit the studios on the Monticello Artisan Network. Swim to the tiny island in lovely Sherando lake, the legacy of the WPA. Visit the Rockfish Valley Natural History Museum’s lovely natural playground less than two miles away.

My husband and I left Memphis, where I taught at a liberal arts college and where he wrote his first book, to return to the beautiful Rockfish Valley, a place we'd fallen in love with during graduate school. We loved our city, but we also loved our solace and space to work, and we wanted to raise our children surrounded by beauty. We love our farm, our neighborhood, and sharing it with visitors. It's a beautiful life!

You'll have a private view and plenty of space, but we're in the farm house a short walk up the hill if you should need anything.
