The Broadhead Mountain Retreat is located just a short drive from the city-limits of Charlottesville, taking you out of town, while still overlooking it. Broadhead, completed in 2011, offers modern living with rustic charm and quality. There are two private bedrooms to choose from –a master bedroom offering a high-end Savy Sleeper queen sized mattress and private bath and on the opposite side of the home a bedroom with two twin beds. If you feel like sleeping by a stone wood-burning fireplace claim the queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room. The open living room, with wide plank floors and wall of windows gives you a breathtaking view of the Piedmont Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains. The view alone is reason enough to stay here. The kitchen is both practical and aesthetically pleasing, fit for a chef, with stained wood countertops, stainless-steel refrigerator, dishwasher, stove and plenty of cabinet space. Whether you feel like eating at the kitchen table inside, or sitting outside, you’ll be taking in the essence of Mother Nature.
This is the ideal setting if you feel like getting away from the hustle and bustle but still want to be close; Broadhead sits on top of a private mountain on over 100 acres of private land. A short hike or drive up from the house is a private overlook with breathtaking views of Charlottesville. If you want to spend some quality time in the country, breathe in clean mountain air or just go for a hike, then this might just be the perfect place.

It was the Perfect Vacation . Broadhead Mountain Retreat was so relaxing very hard to leave . It had everything we have been looking for. Perfect Views and location and amazing people . We even met the owner and his very sweet dog, while out on a walk one afternoon .
Cannot wait to go back . We will definitely be booking the cabin again next year

This property is ridiculous! Walking in the front door to such a spacious living space and kitchen with unbelievable views out the back just amazing! The amount of pots, pans, plates, cups and silverware was more than adequate for our stay.

This house is simply spectacular. The windows make you feel so connected to nature, and we loved that everything was on one level. The kitchen had everything we needed for slow mornings over pancakes and coffee, listening to the birds wake up or sunsets over the Shenandoah with homemade dinner and a glass of Virginia wine. Well be back!

Spoke with a Team Member several months ago (I don't remember her name). But she was very helfpul, pleasant and answered my questions.
Beautiful home, modern features, very clean and comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked with almost any kitchen item that you would need. Great nature views, very remote. Driving directions sent via email gave very detailed instructions of how to reach the property. We found the house without difficulty. Would definitely recommend that others have an All Wheel Drive or Four Wheel Drive vehicle to reach this property.

Friendly prompt service when we inquired about private yoga and early check in.
This was our second stay at Broadhead, and we hope to return again. The views are so beautiful, and the layout is perfect for our family. Such a warm home with interesting art. Adding on private yoga overlooking the valley was wonderful.

We truly enjoyed our stay. The cabin is off a gravel road about .8 of a mile and is the only structure around which was exactly what we were looking for. There were great views from the portch. The house is large and well appointed. The grounds were the surrounding woods and a short walk up the hill takes you to the mountain top which has chairs and a beautiful area with an amazing view.

Beautiful home. Very well stocked kitchen. I would make sure you have brought food before you head up, it's a long drive up the mountain road, but worth it once you've seen the views. Would book again!!

Your staff was amazing and attentive. Ana was amazingly helpful in booking and was just super sweet. Joe our driver was overly accommodating and even helped us out in the morning when the cabin lost power. The staff responded immediately with two phone calls and helped us find a good breakfast place since we couldn't cook without electricity. I would highly recommend all of your services to anyone visiting Charlottesville area. Would love to know if you manage any other destinations for travel!
WE thoroughly enjoyed the property's view, amenities, and style of the cabin. We loved the upgraded cooking tools and serving glasses/pieces/dishes. We stayed in to cook every night.

The house is stunning inside and outside. Beautiful open plan design. We ate outside on the deck and enjoyed watching the sunset each night. There are windows and sliding glass doors all around so the house was filled with light and views were everywhere. Walk or drive to the mountain top for even better views. The house is well equipped and well cared for.

Several questions were answered promptly and completely.
Two daughters, a granddaughter, and myself enjoyed three days at Broadhead. An extremely well furnished kitchen, plenty of towels and linens, comfortable beds, and attractive furnishings made it a restful, enjoyable retreat. We loved the efficient, attractive design and spent a lot of time appreciating the view from the deck. Sometimes venues do not meet the expectations set by pictures and descriptions. This one surpassed them!

Customer service was beyond top-notch. Great conversations with the team leading up to and through my booking.
Beautiful view and location. The house was eccentric which both added to the fun and made for a few difficulties but nothing that really impacted our stay... the space was large and clean, and the surrounding area was amazing.

Very helpful and responsive.
We could never get the TV to work properly--very limited channels and the DirectTV remote did not operate as advertised. The shower in the master bath could use a grab handle--my elderly father stayed with us and the lack of a handle was a problem.
Other than that we loved the place--fantastic views and access to the mountain top was great. We would stay again.

everything was simple and straightforward - thank you
Home was clean, well-stocked, spacious and comfortable and the setting and views spectacular. We made a dinner reservation before arrival but once we saw the views, how clean and welcoming the house was we decided to cook in. We just wish the road was a little more accessible so we could have invited extended family for a meal.

I loved this mountain getaway! It was the perfect home away from home for my family during Thanksgiving. The beds were comfortable, the amenities were plentiful, the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking every night and cooking a full Thanksgiving meal, and the view was to die for! The perfect atmosphere to wake up to every morning.

I contacted Stay Charlottesville through their website and Hilary promptly responded with what we needed. She actually recommended the home we ended up staying at. It turned out to be the perfect spot for our honeymoon.
We had a fantastic stay at the Broadhead Mountain Retreat! The home is MUCH bigger than the pictures portray. The great room is mostly windows so you get a fantastic view of the sunrise/sunset and beautiful landscape all around. The private overlook just a ways past the home is fantastic (We drove. The hike is a little steep in parts.) and could even be used for a small get together (note the house rules about guest capacity though). Because of how long we stayed, a washer and dryer would've been the cherry on top. But we still had a wonderful stay! Private and intimate, yet close to everything, which is just what we wanted. The house also has everything you need. Just bring your own food and snacks (there were plenty of seasonings in the cabinets and coffee as well. We also found some board games).
A TIP ABOUT DRIVING DIRECTIONS: We were able to put "Lonesome Mountain Rd" into our GPS using the "Waze" app. That's the house address, minus the house number. This lead us to the main road the house is located on without problems. From there, we followed the directions provided by Stay Charlottesville. We arrived after dark ... wouldn't recommend that, given the twists and turns but we managed ok :). We drove a VW Beetle and did just fine going up/down the mountain. If snow or very rainy weather is in your forecast, 4 wheel drive would probably be best. There is a sign pointing to the house, so if you haven't seen the sign ... keep going. There were a few times we wondered if we'd passed the house ... because the miles feel much longer on a mountain :).
Thank you Stay Charlottesville! We will definitely be back and try other properties as well. I'm sure they're all as nice as this one given the great management.

Thought everyone was highly professional and responded immediately to any questions and/or issues. We want to thank Hilary in particular--she was one of the main reasons for choosing StayCharlottesville. Felt that we could trust her input.
Spectacular. It was actually beyond our expectations--quite stunning. Thought the layout of the home was brilliant. We wanted peace and quiet and that is exactly what we got. It was gracious that they provided all the necessities, i.e. toilet paper, paper towels, candles, soaps, dishwashing and laundry detergent, fire wood, etc. Thought the Relay Grocery service was invaluable.

It was love at first sight! My wife and our guests raved about the location and view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Piedmont Valley. Way beyond expectations.
The upper mountain top was special and we were able to observe a sunset that was breathtaking.
We are planning a return trip next fall.
