Robi and John's place was amazing! Well decorated, quiet, cozy and spacious. This was the best airbnb experience I've had so far. It is very evident that Robi and John are passionate about hosting guests and making sure that they have a great time!

We had a wonderful weekend at the Mill. John and Robi's attention to detail made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The house and the surroundings were beautiful and the hosts were welcoming and kind. I'd recommend it to friends - in fact, already have!

This is a perfect place for anyone wanting to visit wineries, horse country, or Charlottesville. The accommodations are luxurious, and hosts are tremendously hospitable! We only needed one night for college tours, but would return for a long weekend as a destination spot; I highly recommend the cottage.

This place is a little slice of heaven. The bed is like a cloud, the main living space is perfect and we wanted for nothing. You can tell how much love went into this place - it is the epitome of history meeting modern. There is so much to do in and around Gordonsville, although we would have been happy to sit and drink coffee on the swing and enjoy the creek views at the house all day. John and Robi will make you feel welcome and their attentiveness shows in all the little details.

Our stay at the cabin at Walker's Mill was nothing short of magical! Celebrating a graduation with some of my grown children was made doubly special by our stay with John and Robi. I cannot wait to come back and have a longer stay! John and Robi were so kind and accommodating. Their attention to detail was incredible and staying in their beautifully appointed cabin was a dream come true. Their generosity with home baked treats, a bottle of local wine decorated with my son's college colors and letting us meet their pets are just a few of the details that made us feel special. Only wish we had had more time and will definitely MAKE time to come back and stay longer! John and Robi are thoughtful and gracious hosts and time spent in their cabin was memorable and unique. Thank you, thank you, John and Robi!
