Minutes from Pippin Hill, our cottage is in the village of Batesville, 20 minutes from Charlottesville, and conveniently near Monticello and Wintergreen. We are also close to Cardinal Point, Veritas, Pollak, King Family Vineyards, and a dozen other local wineries. The 200-year old cottage has a lovely screened porch for outdoor dining, full kitchen with utensils and is decorated with antiques and local art. There grounds feature a large private lawn and sitting areas beside the Batesville creek.

The space

Our cottage is more than 200 years old with three floors. The kitchen and living room are open plan with lots of windows and light. A screened eating porch faces the grounds and creek. The master bedroom is on the second floor with creek views. Please note that the third floor is a loft-style bedroom with two twin beds, suitable for children ages 9+. There is one bathroom in the cottage, accessible through the master bedroom. There is very little privacy between these rooms, so this may not be suitable for two couples, unless you know each other very well and want to flip for the master bed.

Guest access

Guests have the whole cottage to themselves, as well as run of the lawn and garden areas. Guests are asked to respect the privacy of other guests and tenants living in the main house next door.

Interaction with guests

The proprietor lives on the grounds and is happy to meet guests and help out, as needed, or leave guests to enjoy their privacy.

Other things to note

Across the street on Plank Road, The Batesville Market is a 100-year old historic country store. They have basic groceries, convenience items and a deli serving delicious food with an emphasis on local and organic/sustainable food. They also have live music every Saturday night, featuring some of the most talented musicians in Central Virginia.

We had a great time staying at the Plank Rd cottage this weekend. It was close to a market that you can walk to that had great food. It also has live music every Saturday night and was nice to be with the locals. Alex had great hospitality and left us a basket of stuff that was so useful over our stay. We visited the dripping rock as a recommendation from Alex as well as some wineries and breweries in the area. I highly recommend!

The cottage was beautiful decorated and stocked with everything we needed and then more! We arrived to an impressive gift basket stocked with goodies from the local market. The area was quaint and the grounds of the cottage were impeccably maintained. Thanks for having us Alex!

Alexander’s creek-side Cottage was a charming, comfortable spot to base our exploration of the area’s Wine and Cider trails (with a little antiquing thrown in!) Thoughtful, gracious hospitality made us feel truly welcome. He provides a wealth of information to help you plan your visit to the surrounding area. His recommendations for local music and of Dr. Ho’s Humble Pie were excellent. We enjoyed our visit, just sorry we didn’t save time to relax in the chairs waiting for us by the creek!

Nice place and location but I believe overpriced for the accommodations.

Alex is a great host. Centrally located to all of our activities, wineries, hiking, sightseeing. The Batesville Market across the street has great food, lots of locally produced offerings, and live band on Saturdays. The property is well appointed, and super clean. Fresh Eggs, roasted coffee beans, bread, & snacks were a welcome extra.

Alex had everything ready for us as planned. When we arrived, the A/C was running in the loft which made a huge difference on a hot day. The cottage was impeccably clean, and recently remodeled. Great location with peace and quiet, but not too far from everything the area has to offer. The goodies Alex provided in the small fridge provided what we needed for a good egg and toast breakfast to start our day. Having the little country market/deli across the street was a great plus!

We are sophisticated travelers, so our primary influence is: "What kind of place would I like to stay when I'm traveling?" We believe that this approach has led to attracting like-minded travelers, who love the decor, artwork, landscape and design sensibility. Visitors have enjoyed their time here, and we've really enjoyed meeting everyone... this is probably why we've been fortunate to have such great reviews, so far!
