Welcome to Bailey's Retreat! If the cabin is booked, or you need more space check out Bailey's Retreat Cottage #1,2,3, or 4! The Retreat is made up or 50 rustic acres with access to outdoor chimney, pavilion, and pool. Come alone or bring a group!
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. 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.

Another wonderful stay at Baileys Retreat Cabin! Would highly recommend to anyone.
Our hosts where very helpful, accommodating our arrival needs and meeting us when we got there. Everything we needed for a quite retreat was there.
Our experience was lovely. Roseanne and Bill were accommodating and helpful, and the view was immaculate. We used this cabin as a departure point for many day long adventures. The cabin is everything you would need, watch your head if you are over 6 foot in some places but that goes without saying. It is close to breweries, wineries and trails. We had a lovely time .
Baileys Retreat Cabin was very cozy and comfortable. The listing accurately described the clean and carefully arranged amenities. A shower-head that you had to sit down to use in the bath gave a fun feel to the quaint but lavishly accommodated cabin atmosphere. We hope to return as soon as possible!
Great secluded place with spectacular views. High quality cabin with all the plates, and utensils and coffee you need.
This cozy Lil cabin was amazing and fun! Has beautiful views and is secluded in the country. I'd recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice cozy get away.
The cabin was a perfect getaway! The views are so beautiful and the cabin was well-stocked with little snacks and toiletries. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to visit Charlottesville but wants a quiet respite from the downtown mall area.
