Stayed at Shepherd's Cottage and it's a great place to stay in Hot Springs, VA. It was our home away from home! It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, from the kitchen that was well appointed with all the modern conveniences needed, to the comfortable family room and beautiful bedrooms. Loved the decor, the rustic feel and look of the Cottage. The property's grounds were inviting, and the area was quiet!
A Welcome Basket was left in the kitchen filled with goodies that were all made in VA! We certainly made use of the granola and coffee for breakfast, and the bread, cheese and wine was great for an evening by the fireplace.
The Natural Retreats' s staff are wonderful to deal with from making the reservations, to making sure everything is OK when you arrive, to being very helpful with dinner recommendations; Which by the way, The Water Wheel Restaurant at the Inn at Gristmill Square, Cucci's Pizzeria, and The Table at Warm Springs Inn were excellent choices.
Also, the property was located less than 2 miles from The Homestead Resort. The Jefferson Pools, and Milk House Market and Old Dairy Barn was located nearby. Lots of outdoor activities available, from biking, hiking to fishing.
We will definitely stay here again or at one of the other Natural Retreats properties when we are in the area!
