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.

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.

LOVED the home and our stay. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and well kept grounds. Expansive views from the many windows were gorgeous. We enjoyed walking to the top of the mountain at sunset...SPECTACULAR! We would definitely return.

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.

It went very smoothly.
This property is amazing and we can't wait to come back. Incredibly clean, very well appointed, scenic view is amazing. It is a small hike from town which was fine with me. When we got there, I didn't want to leave.
I could not make the property any better and the Stay Charlottesville system went very smoothly.

Hilary was super responsive and able to schedule a private yoga session at late notice
Beautiful house and view! Awesome value for what you get to enjoy. Wall of windows were a great idea. Love the furniture, layout, and unique art (my husband and I are artists). Didn't realize the fire pit was bonfire sized and was afraid to use it. Loved the private yoga session we were able to add on. We hope to be back one day! Great range of kitchen and cooking items.

Hilary was wonderful to work with. She was so prompt and quick with returning emails and phone calls. A+ for customer service!
Our stay at Broadhead Mountain Retreat was absolutely wonderful. The open concept of the cabin is great and the views are stunning. We truly felt like we were on our own personal mountain when we hiked up to the overlook. In the morning we had a private yoga class on the overlook with an instructor that Hilary set us up with; Lizzie taught the class and it was one of the most serene experiences that I have ever had. Yoga on the overlook is a MUST for any fitness friendly individuals staying at Broadhead. Thank you for an amazing weekend; we hope to come back!

The house was exactly what we needed - close enough to town but still felt secluded. The views were breathtaking, and the home itself was very well designed. We enjoyed walking up to the overlook, but found the views from the house just as stunning. The big kitchen and dining table were selling points for us!

I only had to call once, but my question was answered pleasantly. Emails and directions were great.
Our family of 4 LOVED the property! The views were STUNNING! The house was stocked; It was nice to have plenty of dishes, serving bowls, toaster, dishwasher and ice machine. A nice plus was the firewood and kindling set next to the fire place which made it easy to get a cozy fire going. We enjoyed the porch despite it being a bit chilly, you can't resist that view! The property is kept very nice with stone walkways to the front and porch and pretty forsythia plantings. We ventured up to the mountaintop and found a beautiful area with adirondack chairs to enjoy the breathtaking view. This house is a perfect peaceful retreat. We decided to make it a new tradition and will be back to stay again. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home!

A+...very accommodating and friendly.
Access to the master bedroom closet...had to leave our hanging clothes in the guest room...no big deal...just a little odd. A better frying pan...pancakes stuck. Was not informed in advance about the fire pit and wide open viewing area at the Mountaintop. Learned of that from a young lady (who did some marketing for you) who over heard us talking about the house at a restaurant. We did enjoy a beautiful sunset up there on our last night. Also not a big deal, but the plates rattle badly when you walk near the kitchen...flooring sounds a little unstable. The firewood was wet from all the snow...couldn't make a good fire...should keep some wood in the basement or more right next to the fire to dry out.

I called to rent a cabin and spoke with someone who recommended this rental after hearing why I wanted to rent in Charlottesville. I wish I could remember his name but am so grateful for his recommendation. The bride was so happy with the choice!
I cannot say enough great things about this rental and experience. The house was beyond our expectations, absolutely beautiful and the property was breath taking. The views stopped us all in our tracks. Everything was clean and well stocked and the kitchen was filled with platters and bowls and pans making every meal easy. The house is at the top of a dirt road with a steep drop on one side of the road so we avoided driving after the sun went down but the house was about 5 miles from anything you could need.

Excellent! Easy from start to finish.
We loved our time at Broadhead Mountain Retreat. The only problem was that we would have liked to stay longer. The house is beautiful and the grounds with the mountaintop park are relaxing and beyond our hopes for the property. Our first drive up the mountain was in fog. It was awesome, if a bit spooky! The directions were very helpful and reassuring as we made our way up. Stay Charlottesville is by far the easiest rental company I have worked with. The reservation and arrival process couldn't have been easier. The additional information provided was helpful to our stay.

We loved the mountain retreat. The house was perfectly laid out for everyone to have their own space and the full window views were amazing. We had coffee on the deck every morning and took a drive up to the mountain top. My only complaint is that I wish the description had been more in depth in terms of the gravel road, mountain top, etc.

Team was great every step of the way. Helping w/reservations, assisting w/switching properties
Very responsive w/calls or email questions
knowledgeable about property & area.
Anna was awesome w/the wine tour. Very personable, kept us on task, knew where to go. Helped solve a problem very professionally. She is a gem
Mountaintop seating area is stunning. Though the hike is great it is not attached to the home.
The website should probably point out it is a short uphill hike to get there & not at the main property.
Difficult to dine or sip coffee there. Very good exercise though
Very pretty home & great views. Everything needed is there, even an awesome ice maker! Nice grill & patio
