Either Tom or I will meet you at check-in with the key if we haven't discussed other options. Our home is also on the farm within sight but far enough away that you always have privacy, so if you have any questions we are only a phone call away.

1张双人床, 1张沙发床


Welcome! We live down the hill a little ways, so if you have any questions with the appliances, lights, water, heat or air conditioning, just text or call. We will be there in no time to help you.
Sometimes, if multiple hair dryers are in use, you could trip a breaker, it's an easy fix just give us a call.
We have 54 hens and a rooster, Bo diddly. They are free range after 2pm, so keep doggies on a leash after 2. If they aren't used to chickens, they might chase them. You will have plenty of fresh eggs in the Fridge. Enjoy your stay at Shade Tree Cottage.

需爬楼梯 - The loft has steps, not a ladder, so it's easier to go up and down .(twin beds, low ceiling) The very young or very old may need to avoid the loft.
房源里养有宠物 - Our chickens free range after 5pm in the summer, please keep your doggies on a leash from 5pm to 8:30pm. Thanks!
需公用某些区域 - The Cornhole toss boards are shared with another cottage, however each cottage has it's own set of cornhole bags.



Wonderful and cozy home. Perfect for fall getaway. We had a great time and will stay again.

Shade Tree Cottage was perfect for a Virginia Wine Country get away. With our favorite Keswick Vineyards just minutes away. The Cottage was Immaculately clean with all the amenities one could want. Breakfast makings in the fridge, including eggs from Midge's free range hens! We were going to venture into Charlottesville but never did. Gordonsville filled our needs for restaurants and cute shops. We will return to Shade Tree Cottage. Thank you Midge!

Absolutely wonderful to work with. Booked the place for my Mom.

This house was really nice. Midge came by to introduce herself when we arrived and pointed out some things. The kitchen has anything you could possibly need and more. The fresh eggs, bacon and English muffins were a tasty breakfast. My family just loves this cottage. We hope to go back soon.

The Shade Tree Cottage is a wonderful place! We've stayed there twice and will definitely plan to stay there again the next time we visit our family in the area. Midge and Tom are fantastic! They are always there to make sure everything goes well.

Midge and Tom were fabulous hosts!! They were flexible regarding our check-in time, and Midge stopped by about a half-hour after we got there to make sure that we were settling in well. The house was absolutely immaculate (cleaner than my own house!) and they left us fresh eggs from their chickens, bacon, and other breakfast fixings. Our kids loved being able to play soccer in the HUUUUUGE front yard. We were able to enjoy some of the local fare, including BBQ Exchange (which absolutely should not be missed!!) and my husband and our big kids enjoyed a trail ride at Oakland Heights Farm. We highly recommend staying at the Shade Tree Cottage - we hope to come and stay again in the future!!
Summer your adorable family can retreat to the cottage anytime! Tom loved letting the little ones feed the chickens. So glad you were able to enjoy some of the surrounding attractions too. Midge

This is the ideal place for a relaxing getaway. Stayed here with three friends for the weekend. The cabin was clean, spacious and had tons of great amenities, including a deck, corn hole, full kitchen, DVD collection, etc. Midge responds instantly and although we didn't meet, was the perfect host. 30 minutes to Charlottesville. Highly recommended.

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 th…
