(My husband) and I feel so fortunate to have found you here at Cedar Hill. I was disappointed that the Boar's Head was totally booked until finding your wonderful cottage at Cedar Hill. We hope to be back over and over. Very comfortable, and you provided for our every need. In Charlottesville, we have found our favorite restaurant, Duner's, and our favorite accommodation, Cedar Hill. P.S., we love the coffee cake, just like all the others before us. —EB 04/13
Your office was wonderful! We so enjoyed our get away. The rough part was leaving yesterday. We will be back! Thank you for making our get away better then perfect! —AW 05/13
We have stayed in many different hotels in Charlottesville, but this was like being at home. We very much enjoyed the setting. Nest time we return to Charlottesville, we will try to stay here. The Shepards were so very nice, and it was wonderful to meet them. —BR 11/13
This is our second time staying at Cedar Hill and we would never re-visit if we hadn't fallen in love with the accommodations the first visit! The hospitality is AMAZING!! The hostess is so sweet and it's almost like we are alone in the woods. You never even realize there is a house next door. Every room is comfortable, especially the sleeping accommodations! The bed is clean and super comfy, super easy to fall right asleep the second your head hits the fluffy down pillows! I'm a VERY picky person; I usually bring my own linens, pillows, towels, and dishes at times when I travel. Here I feel at home and don't bother bringing any of that. I'm super comfortable because it is so clean! We ate out most of the time to treat ourselves, but the coffee cake our hostess makes is awesome and she also left milk, OJ, eggs, yogurt & fresh fruit along with croissants and jelly for breakfast. The hostess is very thoughtful! Also, Guesthouses Reservations is very helpful with recommending places to visit and eat. We will be back next year, and every year after that!!! —JF 03/14
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cedar Hill cottage! The hospitality was outstanding! The hosts were helpful and welcoming without being intrusive. It felt just like home and the cottage was spotless! The breakfast supplies were perfect for us- just enough to get the day started. Booking was simple and straightforward with Guesthouses. We will definitely be back! —TT 06/14
The hospitality at the Cedar Hill Cottage was superb. It was comfortable and clean, just like home. Upon arrival we found the host had provided a homemade coffee cake, 1/2 dozen eggs with orange juice and milk in the refrigerator, croissants. This was our first experience with Guesthouses, and I do not think it could have gone any better. Our hosts were delightful and very helpful. They provided us with restaurant recommendations and directions as well as possible sights of interest; they also made themselves available for visiting and never made us feel rushed or intrusive on their time. The cottage feels so secluded you do not seem to realize their house is only a very short distance away. The cottage was clean and neat; perfect for a getaway - I could live there! There was nothing we found lacking - complete with washer/dryer and additional linens if needed. The kitchen area has everything a couple needs for preparing a snack, lunch, or full meal. The host provides a basket in the bathroom full of any toiletry item you may need, as well as in the shower. The gardens surrounding the cottage and their home provide privacy. Sitting on the front porch of the cottage and listening to the insects chirping was so relaxing you were ready for bed immediately; breakfast on the front porch was wonderful while listening to the birds chirping and watching the hummingbirds feed at the flowers in the gardens. Each setting took you back to a simpler time when life was relaxing. Added touches were the deer and bunnies in the field. We were so enamored with their cottage and hospitality that we immediately booked for October of this year to enjoy this delightful setting in all its Fall splendor. I found the office of Guesthouses to be very helpful with my decision making and accommodating when making our reservations. I cannot think of a thing that would have made our stay better!
Everything was wonderful! From the booking process to the beautiful cottage with a fresh baked coffee cake! We can't wait to return... —TR 11/14
Cedar Hill Cottage was simply outstanding, everything was thought of by the hosts when it came to making sure you felt welcome. The rooms were all decorated in an inviting manner, we enjoyed eating at the breakfast table, and we really enjoyed sitting by the fire enjoying a glass of wine from a local winery. The cottage was organized and clean. The breakfast crumb cake was amazing, we ate nearly half of it without even realizing it! We loved the his and hers robes and really enjoyed the fireplace. Guesthouses provided prompt and factually correct knowledge of the property and helped me make the right choice.
Thank you! The Cedar Hill was wonderful. We had a great weekend! Wallis & Frank were fantastic, more than accommodating and very pleasant. That cottage is like home. It is perfect as far as comfort goes, and spotless! Breakfast was amazing! They left the perfect amount of coffee and goodies for 2. So easy to deal with in the morning. The cottage is centrally located to historical sites as well as wineries. It's tucked away yet close to everything. We would definitely stay again when we are in the area.
Thank you again for such a wonderful booking experience and for suggesting Cedar Hill Cottage to us! As family and friends visit the area, I'll definitely be sending them your way. Frank and Wallis were absolutely wonderful! Frank welcomed us soon after our check-in, they made us feel right at home from the first day to the last! Ahhh, the bed was so heavenly and soft, I never wanted to leave! :)
Everything was in tip-top shape in every room. The breakfast supplies Wallis and Frank provided were great. I truly cannot praise Guesthouses or Cedar Hill Cottage enough! It was hands-down the best all-around experience I've ever had booking accommodations. It was excellent! Joyce was phenomenal! I really enjoyed my stay! —AJ 04/15
Cedar Hill Cottage was fantastic!! The owners could not have been more friendly; gave us great ideas for dinner and maps to spots that interested us! The cottage was extremely comfortable, roomy, very well kept and more than we could hope for! A++ Breakfast was great! Had a fresh coffeecake waiting for us on the counter; eggs, milk & juice in fridge. Choice of jellies & jams for our English Muffins. And Coffee!! Even cereal choices if one was wanting to be good! I can not recommend Cedar Hill enough... Though, I hate to have others find our secret getaway! Lovely wide front porch to put your feet up, sip a cold beverage and do whatever you want, or nothing at all! Wallis & Frank are wonderful at hosting! Hope we get to do it again! Now that I have found Guesthouse properties, I will keep this jewel! Thank you very much! —J&CW 06/15
