Shade Tree cottage is a comfortable cottage located on a 22 acre farm in Historic Gordonsville, VA. Convenient to Keswick, UVA, Charlottesville, Barboursville, Wolftrap Farm Weddings, Castle Hill Cidery Weddings, Monticello and Montpelier. The Cottage is excellent for family get togethers, wedding guests who want an affordable, convenient and comfortable place to relax, and just a great place to wind down after the many historic activities and wine venues in the area. Nestled under 100+ year old trees on a shady knoll there's always a breeze from the Southwest Mountains here in the Piedmont region of Virginia. Birds galore call Shade Tree Cottage home and know that their feeders are always full and close by. Rabbits and deer also visit regularly and our resident ground hog can be spotted sunning himself in the pasture. Don't be surprised if the chickens come see you in the afternoon, they like to scratch around the bird feeders.
The Cottage has 2 Bedrooms, one with Queen bed and the other is a Double Bed (new) and a comfortable pull out sofa for extra sleeping options. With a sitting area this second bedroom doubles as a light filled side room for reading or lounging. An awesome sleeping loft (low ceiling) with comfy twin beds is overlooking the great room. (Probably best for agile teens) A bathroom with shower is located just off the main bedroom.
The large country kitchen is fully equipped and has a French door opening to the deck, which is great for morning coffee overlooking the pasture.
Laundry room is off the kitchen with stacked washer and dryer units.
Wireless Internet (booster from main house), TV, and strong Verizon cell signal.
If you need more space," The Little House" at Shade Tree Cottage may also be available for booking. It is located near the Cottage, has one queen bedroom, new bath, living room and eating area overlooking the covered and screened porch and pasture.
