Thanks in advance for your cleanliness
We loved our stay in the charming cottage #1 @ Bailey's Retreat. We checked in after attending our son's graduation at UVa to find balloons with UVa plates and napkins and a basket of goodies. Yum! The pictures are accurate and the area is close enough to Charlottesville. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you for a great experience.
My husband and I stayed here after our wedding and everything was perfect! From the cleanliness and cuteness of the cottage, to the amazing view of the mountains the next morning. Our only complaint is that we wished we could have stayed longer! Roseanne is so warm and welcoming and we will definitely be back! : )
Bailey's Retreat Cottage was our first experience using AirBNB and it was such a positive experience. The place is exactly as you see in the photos posted. Very homey with all appliances provided for you and even with all the other cottages being rented, it was super quiet! The welcoming basket of pumpkin bread + chips was wonderful considering we were starving from our long drive. The first night, we went to the outlook area and met Roseanne and Bill and they were very nice and let us check out the cabin since it wasn't being rented at the time. Even their friends who were visiting with them were friendly and talked to us about what to see in Charlottesville. Not to mention, the view was stunning! After that initial interaction, we didn't speak to them again and they respected our privacy. The cottage is only a 20 minute drive away from the town of Charlottesville + Monticello, but it didn't seem that far away when we were driving. We would highly recommend this place to our friends and anyone who wants to come to Charlottesvile but doesn't want to stay right in the busy city. We will even come here again if we ever find ourselves visiting Virginia again (& be sure to stay longer than a weekend!)
The cottage was exactly as listed. My friends and I enjoyed our stay at cottage #1.
Roseanne always promptly replied to all inquiries I made before and all inquiries my friends made during our stay.
My friend loved it so much she recommended the place to other friends.
