This is a wonderful getaway location and the accommodations are very comfortable!
This cottage is very comfortable and super clean. There is a full kitchen should you decide to eat in and the cottage is nestled within the woods making for a quiet, restful getaway. We love hiking and there is a nice trail from the backdoor to a popular overlook of the valley. Michael was kind enough to help us as we ended up with a flat tire as we were leaving.
I look forward to returning.
Thank you for your kind review. I hope that you made it back without any issues. Thank you for staying with us.

Beautiful Setting - Beautiful Property
This location is convenient to anything one would want to do in the area. The hosts are exceptional and made us feel extremely welcome. I highly recommend booking this property!
I'm happy that you and your mom enjoyed staying here, the walk up to Humpback Rocks, and the wineries. It feels like a wonderland, with so much nature and space around. We would be happy to have you back anytime.
Autumn in the Mountains
Beautiful area. The tree colors were at their peak and it was awesome to be here at this time. The Cottage is located next to the woods and a short distance to a wonderful stream. Cottage very nice. Everything looks new. Owners very nice and helpful. Beds very comfortable. I highly recommend this place.
Thank you, Edie, for staying with us. We're happy you and Kristie enjoyed your stay.
We did replace the corkscrew and the outside light. Thank you for letting us know about them.
Fall 2019 VA trip
The cottage was emaculate. Very nice place. It did lack the coziness that we look for in a place to stay in the mountains. The no TV was a drawback - we like to watch the news. The ad did not indicate the bed was a Murphy Bed and that affected our sleeping comfort. We like to unpack our clothing and there were no drawers to do so except a night stand type piece. They had lots of built ins in the bedroom but they were full of blankets. Nice but I wish I had counted. Shelves and cabinets filled with them and others with books. Really... I think we’re using the cottage to store their blankets?? Other than our hanging clothes we lived out of a suitcase for three nights. Also a full size coffee maker would be a plus. We had to make 2 - 3 pots each morning. Toaster wouldn’t stay pushed down so we just used the oven, but they probably need to check that. Overall we really enjoyed the area and the cottage was clean and well stocked.
Thank you, Sherri, for the input. I’m sorry that you missed television and didn’t find the cottage cozy. We say in the description on VRBO that there is no television, and that the cottage is a retreat from everyday life
The thick yoga blankets are used during meditation retreats (which we also say), and the books are almost exclusively books on meditation and yoga.
We wish you had told us about the toaster while you were here. We would have given you ours or gone out and gotten a new one. Today we bought a new toaster and a 12 cup coffee maker. It’s the first time anyone said that a 5 cup coffee maker was not big enough. Thank you for that information.
Although no one has mentioned anything about the lack of pullout drawers, we will address that situation.
As the founder of a company that makes mattresses and bed frames in central Virginia, I can safely say that most Murphy beds (including ours) support a mattress exactly the way a platform bed does. So long as the slats are well supported and flat--which our Murphy bed slats are--the comfort of the bedding is independent. Having worked with thousands of customers over many years, I understand that people have different preferences and needs in bedding.
The mattress in the cottage is an excellent firm mattress on the bottom with a soft, organic wool topper on top of that. Although you are the first person to complain about it from over 150 guests who have slept on it, I regret that it wasn’t comfortable for you.
I also regret that--out of the two days you were here--it rained one whole day and also that--on the only other day--I couldn’t pick you up when your car broke down. I did offer to do so.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation. We go out of our way to ensure that all our guests have a happy experience at Gracewood.
We truly enjoyed our stay at this property. The location was perfect for traversing Nelson County and the house was very clean with more than enough space for the two of us. The solitude and the hiking options exceeded our expectations. Thank You Heather and Michael.
Thank you, Ed and Karen, for choosing Gracewood. If you decide to spend more time in this area, please contact us and maybe we can get together someplace.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cottage was immaculate and the grounds were beautiful !
It was wonderful to have you and Angela stay at Gracewood. We would be happy to have you both back, or you and your husband. Warm Regards,
