Cute and cozy cottage in Keswick on the historic mile. Great setting for getting away or hanging your hat while you visit local attractions!

O espaço
Cute-as-a-Button Efficiency Cottage, located in the heart of Keswick Horse Country. One room cottage with kitchen, bath, and two twin beds. Conveniently located within 2-1/2 miles of Keswick Hall, 8 miles from Charlottesville, 10-12 miles to UVA, and near local historical attractions: Monticello, Ashlawn, Montpelier and local wineries. Great place to hang-your-hat while visiting the area. Nestled amongst shade trees on the Keswick Historic Mile - route 22.

Great location for Parent-Weekend at UVA, Homecoming, Foxfield Races, Horse Events in Keswick, Weddings at "the Hall", wine tours, etc.

The cottage is located behind our home on historic route 22/Louisa Road and Clarks Tract. Enjoy all that Charlottesville has to offer, community theater at Live Arts, Four County Players, the Hamner Theater, Black Friars Playhouse, etc. "Fridays After 5" on the downtown pedestrian mall is a must for mingling with the locals or enjoy the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings on Water Street. First Fridays (the first Friday of each month,) is when local art galleries on the downtown mall have open house, or visit the plethora of wineries in the area (Keswick Vineyards is just a few miles down the road on route 231.) Then you may want to consider day trips to Washington, D.C. (2-1/2 hours away to the north-east,) Colonial Williamsburg, VA, (2 hours away to the east,) Richmond, VA (1 hour away to the east,) or beautiful Skyline Drive/Afton Mountain, (45 minutes away to the west.) Our family enjoys jaunts to some of the world's most beautiful caves: Lurray Caverns, Dixie Caverns, and Shenandoah Caverns - all within an hour and a half.

Just four miles away, our family owns an antique mini-mall, featuring over 50 vendors of 18th, 19th and 20th century finds. (It's also the source of most of the cottage's furnishings.) But we are just as delighted to share our other favorite antiquing hot-spots! Begin your treasure hunt at A&W Collectables, and there, you can pick up a map to our other favorite antiquing hot-spots!

Feel free to roam any part of the yard. The cottage is ideal for one person. It can house two people if you don't mind sharing your personal bubble. Two and a pet will be very cozy, indeed, and more than that, well, it's 20ft. by 12ft. You can make the call and do the math. :)

Please, make use of our yard. It's not much. I don't have a green thumb, but again, what i lack in skill, I make up for in enthusiam. The frog pond was overrun by turtles last year, thus making it a turtle pond this year. (I believe they are Eastern painted turtles.) There is a swing set left over from the childish days of our now adult children. (I recently unearthed some left over treasure in the old sandbox.) There is a hammock and a gas grill and you are free to use any of them. In the works: a little free library. It is still rough and under construction, but it does shelter a shelf of books and a leather reading chair. Help yourselves! Improvements pending...

Keswick, Virgínia, Estados Unidos

Keswick is a gorgeous community. Horse farms, wineries, and board fences abound. But the thing I like best about Keswick, is its quirky characters. There's an odd blend of Virginia FFV and good ol' boys, re-emergent ethnic diversity, affluence and stable poverty. Shifting fortunes seem to be taken in stride and there is no lack of local curiosity. It takes a while to meet local flavor. And yes, truth is indeed stranger than fiction. William Faulkner has some interesting quotes about Charlottesville and the area residents - all pretty accurate. :)

I am a mother, novelist, chicken wrangler, cat herder, and dog fur heckler. When I'm not parenting, or chasing aforementioned pets, I can most often be found in the writing cave.
Durante sua estadia
We live in the house near the cottage! I may even get to wave and invite you over for a drink. And if you have a guitar, feel free to join me if you hear the not quite dulcet strains of a banjo. I am an undeniably poor banjo picker, but what I lack in skill I make up for in enthusiasm. :) I'm a writer, so I'm home most of the day, but I'm always available for chit-chat or whatever - just looking for an excuse to procrastinate. Feel free to knock on the door and join me for a cuppa coffee, writerly chit-chat, etc..
