“The Kitchen Cottage, quaint and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We stayed at the Kitchen Cottage of the Anderson Cottage while attending a conference in nearby Hot Springs (5 mi.) The Kitchen Cottage is detached from the main house, but is right next door as it was the original kitchen for the main house. It easily sleeps 4-6 with two baths and a comfortable seating area. The downstairs is a bit rustic, but comfortable and the upstairs is very nice, with a full kitchen, bedroom and bath. We were provided with a basic continental breakfast to get us going, really totally adequate. There is a grocery store nearby to stock up on other essentials, and a couple of very good restaurants. The Waterwheel is just around the corner in this fascinating historic village. I would love to come back and spend a couple of days just wandering the area, reading up on Bath County and enjoying the cozy comfort of the Anderson Cottage Kitchen. Thank you Jean for your warm hospitality.

My husband and I stayed at Anderson Cottage for a weekend getaway a few years ago. We found Jean, our host, to be engaging and knowledgeable of the area and local history/lore. Growing up as a local to the area, I have always admired Anderson Cottage and its rich history, and thoroughly enjoyed staying there with my husband on this visit. We stayed in an upstairs bedroom, and enjoyed the antiques throughout the house, as well as the scenery from our bedroom window. The steam that rises off the warm spring running along the back of the property made for some incredible pictures. Though my husband and I don't frequent bed and breakfasts, we thoroughly enjoyed the warm and friendly chat in Jean's kitchen while getting our morning coffee, and her delicious southern breakfast made me feel as if I were a child again. While there, we were permitted to explore the kitchen cottage in hopes of returning with our family one day. Currently, we're planning a weekend there with our kids and dogs to take advantage of the Homestead's ski slopes and outdoor ice skating rink. On our first visit we enjoyed a magnificent meal at the Waterwheel Restaurant at the Inn at Gristmill Square, a local restaurant also steeped in history and delicious entrees. I look forward to returning to Bath County for our next visit.

We loved this place. It reminded me of many of the old tudor farmhouses I stayed at in England as a child, from the wide beamed oak floor boards to the antique chests, cozy hallways & copies of Nature Conservancy on our bedroom endtable. Relaxing & in a very peaceful setting. Our hostess joined us for breakfast, a nice touch we don't always see in B&Bs these days. Note - our cast iron bathtub had a shower wand & hose attached directly to the tub faucet (as opposed to wall mounting), but it's fine if you don't mind sitdown showers. The location is convenient - it's a 2 minute walk to the great little tavern & restaurant at the Gristmill, & 10-15 min. walk to the (fabulous) Jefferson Baths.

We stayed in the suite on the first floor for my husband's birthday weekend. The antiques were beautiful in it and the place had a very relaxed feel. The bed could've been more comfortable and the bathroom a bit more up to date, but the overall atmosphere of the place more than made up for it. The breakfasts were so very yummy and the warmness of our hostess could not have been outdone. We also really enjoyed just sitting on the bridge over the stream behind the house and just taking in the beauty of the place. I highly recommend staying here.

As a New Englander, the discovery of Bath County, VA gives a whole new meaning to Spring. We discovered Warm/Hot Springs several years ago, and return every April. The trees are dripping with flowers and the tiny, new green leaves which fill me of hope.
This time we stayed at Anderson Cottage with our old Golden Retriever for 2 nights. Anderson Cottage was at one time a tavern, a girls' school and now an inn. The main building was full of interesting objects: beautiful, old oil paintings by Porte Crayon, Jean's fathers collection of birds' eggs, antique furniture, books and more. Due to the dog, we stayed in the Kitchen Cottage which is an older outbuilding. It was a charming brick structure with a deep fireplace, small upstairs deck and kitchen which was equipped with coffee, tea and real cream (I despise fake creamer), among other dry goods. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Since we were a party of 2, we stayed in the upstairs room which by far was the most comfortable. The antique bed was made with mismatched cotton sheets and warm blankets. A warm spring runs behind the property. We left the window opened a crack at night to enjoy the gurgling of the stream. In the morning the mist drifts off of the water into the cool air. There is a picnic table in the yard for al fresco lunches. Walking around the village takes only a few minutes but I enjoyed it every morning. You can walk to the Jefferson Pools for a 1 hour soak in the "waters" for $15.
Our hostess, Jean Bruns was a font of local history and lore. She made a fantastic breakfast both mornings. It was served in the dining room with the table set with gorgeous old family silver before a roaring fire. Breakfast was served at 9 AM so the coffee in the cottage was much appreciated. Nearby there are a few restaurants for dinner: Inn at Gristmill Square (order smoked trout and duck), Elliot's in Hot Springs, take out gourmet at the Homestead Market, and the Varsity if you have kids. Gristmill is 3 doors away and they have a small pub attached to the restaurant.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and visit with Jean. She provided privacy as well as good company; not an easy balance to strike.

This is a charming place, in a beautiful and historic area. It's not luxury lodging, but it's homelike -- if your home is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a lovely garden with a swiftly running stream behind it.

The main building has been a lodging place for many decades, and the warm springs where Jefferson took his pleasure are very nearby, not to mention Lake Moomaw, one of Virginia's best secrets.
