Wine in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This weekend getaway was a gift for my husband to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. Since 5 years is wood, and we love to visit whatever wineries are nearby, Beavers Hill Cottage looked like the perfect wooded option, and it did not disappoint. It was a very easy drive ( follow directions provided by the owners) and close (but not too close) to all kinds of wineries and places to eat. It was only the two of us and our little terrier, but the house comfortably sleeps six. Very clean, and wonderfully decorated, I felt like I was at home. We spent most of the time on the deck and you could hear a pin drop it was so quiet. Just what we were looking for. The hosts were very responsive and made everything easy. We found some great wineries and will be back as soon as we can. This time with a group. Plenty of space to get some friends together for a quiet weekend cookout.

Private Mountain location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and nice. We enjoyed our stay very much. Very nice hot tub and very private location. The roads were a little scary at first narrow and gravel but no issues seeing that it was summer time. The pictures and description were spot on. We enjoyed seeing the mountain views on skyline drive. Gas station and 7-eleven very close on route 55 was nice for things needed in a pinch. Enjoyed the ice cream stop near the Apple BBq place.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Christine! We appreciate you taking care of the cottage during your stay and keeping it so clean. There are gravel roads on the mountain and that's why we go over that in our rental agreement since that will be important during the winter months if it snows. We're so glad you enjoyed skyline drive and the ice cream spot (that's our favorite in the summer as well!) Thanks again for staying at Beavers Hill Cottage. We hope you come back to visit! ~Rachelle & Don

A wonderful, peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit, and we stayed for nearly a week. We had a terrific time. The cottage is cozy, stylish, clean, and comfortable. We love just being able to cook for ourselves in a relaxed manner. The cottage is very secluded and quiet -- though every so often one hears the sound of a vehicle on a road nearby (very occasionally).

Such a place of peace. This is a perfect spot for a relaxing getaway.

You're welcome back anytime! ~Rachelle & Don

The house was lovely and perfect for our family - mom and dad and adult children. We really enjoyed breakfast out on the deck overlooking the forest. We highly recommend.

A Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Beavers Hill Cottage was in a perfect location, the house itself was beautiful and spacious, and you can't beat the hot tub! Rachelle and Don were excellent hosts, and upon entering the cottage we had a bottle of local wine waiting for our group of 4. We hope to come back again, and would definitely recommend!

Myself and 4 friends do a girls weekend twice a year, and this April we stayed here. We LOVED the house! Plenty of room for 5 adults, great décor, comfortable, awesome deck and hot tub, and owners were easy to work with during the rental process. Would highly recommend this beautiful house !
