We had a wonderful stay in the Cadus Cottage with our dog, Daisy! We had a tasting from Afton Mountain Winery dropped off at the cottage because we arrived too late. Fabulous wine! Dinner on the back porch and the wonderful bathroom and kitchen, we enjoyed everything.
Many thanks and we hope to return soon!

We were very impressed with the customer service we received. They were quick to respond with any questions or help that we needed. We had great service with staycharlottesville when we couldnt get Hulu to open in the tv, they were quick to send an email with directions. Great customer service.
There were some nice touches around the cottage that were unexpected but appreciated, like tall candle holders with battery operated candles in them, for that romantic feel. The shades on the windows were nice to have when you needed privacy. The windows were easily opened for when you want that mountain breeze. Im not sure what they had planted around the cottages but every once in a while I could smell it and it was a wonderful fragrance. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the appliances were very nice. The views were wonderful and we really enjoyed sitting on the deck. I really enjoyed watching the goats and looking for deer. We both loved that the deck had a roof so we could sit out even with rain and feel the cool breeze in the heat without the sun blaring down on us. The Cadus Cottage deck seemed to have a shaded spot on it all day which we liked. We dont have a dog but thought it was nice that a mat and bowls for a pet was supplied. The bathroom was huge with a nice shower. The water pressure was low but the water did get warm quickly. All in all we enjoyed our get away to this wonderful cottage and hope to be back again.

GREAT. We stayed in the Woolen Mills Retreat 4 years ago and nothing but good experiences with team members then as well. We had an issue connecting with the WiFi (on the Stay Charlottesville directions it was different than in the cottage information booklet). We figured it out before we were contacted by Stay Charlottesville, but contact was made almost immediately via email (after business hours!) and then a call by the property manager the next day. Much appreciated! (The Nationals game hung in the balance for a minute while we figured everything out! :))
Everything was spotless and so tastefully decorated. We had all we needed to cook "in" each night and every morning; very welcomed with the chilly evenings and the corner fireplace! The cottage had great views of the goats, mountains, field and the winery. FANTASTIC sunrise views! The orange light just filters through the cottage and BONUS - we could watch it from the warmth of the HUGE comfy bed - so pretty! We absolutely loved that we could walk the vineyard after closing, and definitely took advantage of it. We will absolutely be back!

very easy to work with, very responsive!
The Cadus Cottage location was excellent and affords the feeling of being away from it all but yet is in close proximity to multiple vineyards, breweries, fruit/vegetable stands. Having access to the patio at The Afton Vineyards after hours was super sweet for watching the sunset and early morning walks with the dog, Wilma. Cadus is situated so perfectly for taking advantage of the breathtaking mountain views with lots of windows and high ceilings which make it feel much larger than it is. The back porch is awesome; outfitted with the bistro table/chairs and rockers, where we spent the majority of our time. The property and cottage overall more than met our expectations, a beautiful escape!!

Kate is always splendid to work with. We have been very happy with Stay Charlottesville - this must be our 4th or 5th time booking through this service. We have referred many friends and family members to this property. Always enjoyable to work with.
We love the cottages, and the ability to bring our dog with us (he loves it up there, plus it's cheaper than boarding him). The views are amazing, the back porch is huge and comfortable, and the bed is huge! We will keep coming back!
