Charming is truly the word for this intimate home. Interacting with Ann was easy, professional and delightful. My brother and I stayed at Ann’s place for a weekend wedding, and it was an easy walk to restaurants, shops, and the Omni Hotel (where the rest of the wedding party stayed, though after seeing Ann’s place many are now considering using AirBnB). It was a wonderful place for our family to relax and have a glass of wine, or play bocce in the yard before getting ready for the festivities; it was exactly what we hoped for. Ann’s cottage (the dew drop inn), was very clean, comfortable, the layout of the home flowed well, and the beds were fantastic. If I found myself in Charlottesville again, I would stay there in a heartbeat. … and this may sound snobby, but throughout the home she had touches of unassuming, yet quality items where it mattered, like decent wine glasses and a French press~ which is a rare find when not in your own home~ and all those small attention to details really make a difference in the overall experience. It’s was simply a lovely, comfortable place to stay. ~Thank you Ann.
Our stay at the Do Drop Inn greatly surpassed our expectations. The house was very clean, and Ann proved to be a great host. The notes she left around the house were very helpful and she also left us a fridge full of essentials, which I thought was a lovely gesture. Great experience overall!
it was a very nice place. The house very cozy and had everything we needed!
Beautifully appointed, comfortable and welcoming. Ann's home is pleasure to spend time in. There aren't any other choices in Charlottesville that offer as much.
Ann was responsive and clearly has attention to detail. I am a host myself so I was checking to see what her style and efficiency was like. It seems I have some work to do if I am to be a good a host as Ann
I will not want to stay anywhere else when I return to Charlottesville.
Ann was very communicative and her house was delightful. It was comfortable, clean and well located. I look forward to staying again!
We had great time! Ann's place was perfect. The house was beautiful and quiet and also had perfect amenities. Definitely recommended.
The house was charming, comfortable, and clean, exactly as advertised. While we did not meet Ann, she left the home in such a way that it felt very welcoming. Lots of nice touches, and note cards to help us find things and quickly figure out out things like the TV/DVD player work. It was an easy walk to the downtown mall, the Amtrak station, and the free trolley - in other words centrally located. The fenced gardens in the back yard were a lovely oasis in the city. Highly recommended.
