This single-bedroom cottage is named for the Barrel Cooperage "Billon" (bee-yon). We used these barrels most recently in our Sangiovese. They offer a light touch of oak while keeping the fresh bright character of the grape. You'll feel refreshed and bright too in this cottage below our beautiful grand weeping cherry, with the deck looking straight out over the wildflower meadow and into the mountains beyond. Park-like views from the bedroom and bath, vineyard and mountain views from the deck and every other room in this cozy cottage.
Featuring a king-size bed, spacious tile bathroom, open plan living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. Freshly decorated with local art and contemporary furnishings, and all countertops of locally quarried soapstone. Solar shades in the rooms with views and room-darkening shades in bedroom and bath. Electric fireplace in the corner can warm you on a chilly night, or create that intimate ambience when you're ready to snuggle in for the evening. 650 private square feet with a deck overlooking the wildflower meadow.
SmartTV with Hulu access; Antenna for local channels

Screened-In Back Patio Outdoor Seating with Stunning Views of Vineyard Vines & Pond

Great - website is easy to use!
We loved the cottage and found it to be the perfect getaway. The views and peaceful environment at the vineyard were just what we needed. Bed was comfortable and the kitchen pretty well stocked.

Beautiful surroundings. We appreciated the freedom to walk within the fenced area of the vineyard, which we did a few times.

Super easy to book online and when I did call the number for an issue (active wasp nests that we had no way to manage ourselves), it was taken care of promptly while we were visiting a winery.
Billon Cottage was lovely. It was the perfect size for our getaway weekend. Bed was super comfy and appreciated the shades to help us sleep in. Bathroom was large and we loved the nice shower. Kitchen was well appointed, allowing me to prepare all of our breakfasts, lunches, and even one dinner during our stay without needing anything (I did bring my own spices/olive oil as suggested, but didnt need anything else). Living area was well appointed. A full size couch/ottoman would be nice for evenings in front of the fire/tv, but the loveseat worked. Loved the porch rocking chairs, plus table/chairs combo for meals on the porch. And the view - wow! We saw beautiful sunrises and even enjoyed watching a storm pass over the mountains! We also enjoyed watching that goats! We really loved being able to walk the vineyard property after hours, and took advantage of the included tastings!

The house was perfect for my husband and I. Loved the porch. Fruit flies were abundant this time of year, however we are on a vineyard!

I wish I could remember his name, but the gentleman who served our wine tasting (former teacher) was very pleasant to talk to. He was knowledgeable about the wine, he answered all our questions, and he made great conversation.
Staying in the cottages at Afton Mountain Vineyards we really excellent. My wife and I did it as a last short summer vacation before she went back to teaching. The atmosphere is excellent and you stay looking out over the vineyard. Very clean - very new - and very comfortable. The cottage is new but it is quality. Furthermore, I felt like I got 'bang for my buck'. The wine tasting was included. We got to keep the wine glasses as included. The employees were very pleasant to talk to and interact with. The cottage was plenty of space. Overall just an excellent experience.

STAY Charlottesville was very helpful and friendly.
The view from the house was absolutely beautiful - it was peaceful and refreshing. It's also close to Blue Mountain Brewery, which was a great place to spend a couple of hours.
