Welcome to Bailey's Retreat, a respite from the rat race. Time stands still in our charming Civil War-era log cabin where Stonewall Jackson once enjoyed the panoramic Blue Ridge Mountain and Brown's Gap Valley views. The cabin is "unplugged" please enjoy a break from wifi. Perched on 50 rustic acres in Ivy, Virginia, seven miles west of Charlottesville and seven miles east of Crozet, Bailey's Retreat offers scenic serenity for nature lovers, artists, writers, sportsmen or city slickers who simply want to unwind. Or not. Mere minutes from the University of Virginia, Monticello, Skyline Drive, Wintergreen, wineries and breweries, the cabin conveniently sits in the center of regional tourist attractions that fan out in four directions.
Lovingly and rustically restored, our 600sf cabin features an original stone fireplace, ladder-accessed queen sleeping loft, micro-kitchen, and a charming claw footed bath where you can sink down and soak it all in. A beamed ceiling, wood flooring, plaster walls and period details evoke the simplicity of an earlier era while an ample front porch provides plenty of shade. A backdrop of birdsong invites you to think, write, paint, strum, or gin up games to enjoy an unplugged existence.

We are considerate hosts providing enough privacy for a pleasant stay yet ample support if need be. We live with our two girls 13yrs and 15yrs in the main house about 50 yards from the cabin. The entrance to the cabin faces away from the pool and main house so your space is private.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Bailey's Retreat Cabin a few weeks ago and had a near-perfect experience. Bill was extremely pleasant and made our stay very comfortable. The views are amazing and the cabin is so charming that we ended up staying and having campfires both nights. We will definitely be back!
Amazing, relaxing, beautiful stay!! I coordinated the stay with Roseanne and she was so helpful and accommodating! She answered all my questions promptly!I did not know whether to stay on the cottage or the cabin..so we decided I would stay in both. The cottage is a mini apartment minus the tv there is no view but you can go to the main area for the view and pool. The cabin is right on the hill next to the pool and view. Great little rustic cabin with no wifi, definitely recommend both depending what you are looking for! Both are supplied with waters, peanuts and delicious pumpkin bread! Met Bill out by the pool, amazing,hospitable, kind man! You will feel welcome on this property and if you have any concerns you reach out to them!! Highly recommend staying at Baileys Retreat, I know we will again! We got exactly what we wanted a nice beautiful getaway with great hosts and a meteor shower!
We really enjoyed our short stay in the cabin. There was a nice welcome note and basket from Roseanne and Bill, and Bill came over shortly after we arrived to welcome us and make sure we settled in ok. We greatly enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful cabin, resting by the pool, and kicking back in the adirondack chairs while the sun went down over the mountains. We highly recommend Bailey's Retreat Cabin to anyone looking for a restful, relaxing place to stay while in the Charlottesville area.
Amazing time! This is really an exceptional location with fantastic accommodation. Please go all!
This cozy cabin tucked away in the Blue Ridge mountains is a real find. Bill met us the instant we arrived and welcomed us with a big smile and a loaf fresh pumpkin bread. The cabin is immaculately clean, and it is a tiny but brilliantly arranged space - it has a sleeping loft above instead of a bedroom, and a beautiful claw-foot soaking tub instead of a shower- but it is quite tastefully decorated and delightful amenities like luxurious bathrobes are included. But it's the peace and quiet and stunning views from the top of the mountain that you will remember about this unique and tranquil spot.
This was just as advertised and better! The view was amazing the pool was wonderful the bed was comfortable the ax worked great it had a full kitchen. Everything is cute and mini sized and functional. I don't actually have the words to describe how amazing our weekend was. If you want a quiet romantic weekend this is the place to go. We will be back!
Great weekend getaway. Cabin is really nice and the views are unbelievable! Also, the pool is great and right next to the cabin. Roseanne and Bill are also great and very responsive. Highly recommend.
