We built this cottage on our property 16 years ago as a mother in law cottage.We now enjoy sharing it with people looking for a little peace and quiet in the Virginia countryside. We are almost within walking distance of Montpelier, 5 miles from the town of Orange, and 10 miles to Woodberry Forest School. Charlottesville is about 25 miles/35 minutes away.
We welcome well behaved dogs at no extra charge.

The space

You are welcome to roam around our 4+acres, take a walk through the woods on our frisbee golf course, or even play a round! If you're a hearty soul you could even walk to Montpelier! There are chairs out in the yard for star-gazing, or hanging out with your dogs, or with our dog-ambassador Snowy.

Guest access

Of note, there is NO internet. Most of our guests get good phone service and are able to use their own data plans. If you have something hearty you need to download or print you are welcome to come over to our house to do so.

Senic location with a wonderful place for my dog to run. House was so cozy with all the essentials plus extras like farm fresh eggs and brandy to sip on. I highly recommend this cottage plus I got wonderful ideas to help me with my house because I am also an Airbnb host.

This is close to the best AirBnB experience I've had to date. The Roost is so thoughtfully put together. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is modern and clean. The kitchen is fantastic, the living/lounge room comfortable and well proportioned. But, really, the thing that made it so spectacular was the hospitality from Cynthia. Everything is thought through. There is food for snacks, fresh from the local area, milk, a few beers, eggs. So lovely. The property is fantastic, we saw wild deer bounding in the trees. Could not recommend highly enough. We were in town for two nights for a wedding and it was perfect. Thank you!

An absolutely perfect cottage for those who want to just get away! The cottage was absolutely perfect. Plenty of room for my husband, me, and our dog. The kitchen was MORE than well-stocked with everything you would need for preparing your own meals. Cynthia had put lovely bouquets of fresh flowers throughout the cottage. We felt like the cottage / Cynthia and Gary were giving us a GREAT BIG HUG! Wonderful privacy! Beautiful grounds with lots of space for our dog to run and do dog stuff! There was a Food Lion about 10 minutes away. We needed a little more bug spray due to the warm weather. Cynthia and Gary were the consummate hosts and were very responsive. We cannot wait to visit again!

My grown daughter and a friend needed somewhere close to a local wedding. This was prefect! Friendly, warm, inviting, cozy. Definitely family friendly. If I or my family are ever nearby again, we will be back!

The roost is an adorable place perfect for a weekend get away. Very clean and close to many of the attractions in Orange and the surrounding towns. Cynthia was an awesome host and this place is highly recommended.

My husband and I have built a wonderful home on Chicken Mountain. Once we had an extended family but now we are empty -nesters.
We love spending time outdoors and love skiing in Utah and Montana with our children and friends. We always stay in airbnb style places and find it's the best way to travel!
