This is the best little, tiny house in the Keswick/Gordonsville area! Great for a couples' get away or a midweek stop to take in the surrounding history. Living area, kitchenette, new bathroom and a separate bedroom, (queen bed) all on one floor! Located in a beautiful area overlooking a pasture just outside Gordonsville, minutes from award winning wineries and historic destinations, 20 minutes to UVA, Monticello, or Montpelier. Five minutes from the picturesque, historic Town of Gordonsville.

The space

The Little House is on a 22 acre property with 2 other houses and can be rented alone or with Shade Tree Cottage. It's a cozy getaway with pasture views and abundant wildlife. The location is perfectly situated for visiting the area's award winning wineries, Monticello, Montpelier and numerous small historic towns. The Little House has just been remodeled with a brand new bathroom and shower, kitchen, living area and a wonderful new Queen bedroom. The covered porch is great for morning coffee or just waiting for the deer to come across the pasture. Easy to find off interstate 64 and Routes 29 and 15. Birds and abundant wildlife are easy to spot around the feeders and the rabbits and deer come out around dusk every night.

The Little House at Shade Tree Cottage is located on a knoll overlooking a pasture on a 22 acre farm. It is within close proximity of Shade Tree Cottage, a larger Cottage on the same farm. The Little House can be rented along with Shade Tree Cottage or alone. I ask all guests to be mindful of others privacy, peace and quiet after 9pm. The Little House has it's own drive and parking area. ( just follow the Little House Parking signs).

A nice quiet hideaway, close to great wine and good food! Everything is picture perfect, and the screened in porch is to die for. The pup enjoyed the space to run and of course the bird watching. I highly recommend Midge's place!

Midges place was a clean, quiet place to stay, its kind of a drive from I95, but if your looking for a quiet place to stay for the night, this is it. Loved the outdoor screened in porch. Midge is very responsive and a great host

Very private cottage close to Gordonsville, easy to find. The cottage was clean, nicely decorated although the bed was a little bit too soft for me. Gordonsville could use a good breakfast restaurant but there are lots of antique shops and stores to explore. The cottage had a microwave and coffee pot, toaster, paper plates and plastic silverwear and we were provided breakfast bagels & cream cheese. The meadow in front of the cottage was perfect for birdwatching.

My stay at "The Little House" was exactly what I needed during my work trip to the Charlottesville area. As a professional who often travels, I rarely get the chance to just truly enioy my accommodation and "chill out". Midge's home gave me the perfect space to work, relax, and recharge. The space was clean, bright, beautifully decorated, and so comfortable. Midge went above and beyond to help me navigate the surrounding area, and find places to eat and explore in my downtime. I can't wait for my next visit!

The Little House was well-stocked (including some bagels for breakfast!) and beautifully decorated. It was a perfect space for a short getaway. Incredibly close to some great Gordonsville shops and restaurants, too.

Loved the Little Cottage. Midge met us at arrival and went over things with us. Amazing how well they have used the space and we loved the screened porch. Hope to visit again soon.

Little House has everything you need for a couples weekend retreat. Midge and Tom have thought of everything, which was apparent when we forgot something and Little House had it covered. The house was exactly as advertised with a great view, all the accommodations and at night fantastic stargazing location. Midge was an amazing host! Check in was a breeze and Midge even provided a coupon for a tasting in the area. Even though they had some work to do on the property, she communicated it to us to make sure our stay was an enjoyable as possible. Would recommend to friends, and would definitely stay again

Tom, my husband, and I bought the farm in 2000 as a get away from our hectic life in Richmond. We loved the area so much we sold our home in Richmond and moved our Tennessee Walking Horses here to the cottage in Gordonsville. The horses are now gone, we built another home on the farm, and we retired in 2013. We now are Innkeepers for our Shade Tree Cottage and The "Little House". Tom works at one of the area's wineries and tends his large flock of chickens. I enjoy growing summer flowers, so I can fill the cottages with beautiful blooms. Thanks for visiting us. Tom and Midge
