“Perfect Retreat!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We spent 5 nights at the pond view cottage for our 38th anniversary and it was wonderful. The perfect place for serenity and romance. The cottage was beautifully decorated and fully equipped. We enjoyed sitting on the private deck every morning having our coffee listening to the wild life. The view was amazing as we watched the fog on the pond and the cows grazing on the rolling hills. During the day we toured the area. My husband is a Civil War buff so we enjoyed the close proximity to the many towns and museums nearby. We drove along the Blue Ridge Pkwy, stopped at antique stores on Hwy 11 and did some wine tasting at the Rockbridge Winery which were all nearby. Every evening after a day of touring we did some fishing at the pond and ended the day in the hot tub or jacuzzi tub. The fireplace took the chill out of the fall air. We hated to leave but hope to come back one day!

My husband and I spent our anniversary in Sunset Cottage and it was such a relaxing, peaceful time. The cottage was clean, well kept, and so well furnished. The view was amazing. I strongly recommend this hideaway to others. PS...the hot tub was fantastic.

From the moment we hit the gravel driveway we knew this was the place to relax,escape and be totally alone together with nature. The inside of our cottage "pond view" was breathtaking. Perfect condition, beautiful decoration and extremely inviting. The jacuzzi and hot tub were wonderful. So much privacy that we skinny dipped in our hot tub every night! The view from our back deck was eutopia. Cattle grazing in the meadows night and day, birds singing and dancing in the trees , fish jumping in the pond, beavers swimming in the pond, a family of deer every evening grazing and even a sighting of a ground hog!
Cable tv, wireless internet and a landline phone still did not take away from the feeling of seclusion--our own little world.
I will definately tell anyone that will listen that this is the ultimate destination for an amazing romantic getaway or even a solo trip for downtime.
Thank you Melissa and Ray for providing a needed service for mankind---time to commune with nature and your love one!
Want to come back in the winter or early spring!!!! Would love to come back every season!!!!

We have just returned from a two day stay in the Sunset Cottage. It was heavenly. Great mountain view. Very quiet and secluded. The cottage is quite luxurious and very comfortable, especially for a cabin getaway; it comes stocked with lots of thoughtful amenities. We had everything we needed. Situated half way between Staunton and Lexington, there is plenty to do nearby. Or, if you just need to chill, this couldn't be a better choice. We will definitely go back.

Little did we know there existed such a delightful haven for our stressed out souls! The Pondview cottage - a well decorated and comfortably appointed space was welcoming and provided much needed relaxation with the ability to enjoy modern benefits of flatscreen tv, internet access, and a private hot tub, if desired. We happily ate the Godiva chocolates placed on the oversized (and cloud like) king bed -a detail that did not go unnoticed. Admittedly, there's something to be said for enjoying your morning coffee as you sit by a pond that overlooks a peaceful pasture while listening to nature. The reservation process was friendly and accommodating with detailed instructions and helpful hints. If the goal was to provide a cozy cabin with an upscale feel, then mission accomplished!

Last year my boyfriend brought me to Alpine for a long weekend. I was skeptical. I cannot tell you how incredibly beautiful, relaxing, clean and well kept the property is. We stayed in the Sunset cottage and its beautiful. The view of the mountains at sunset is spectacular. so this year for his birthday, I bought him a vacation back at the cabin and we stayed longer. We did things this year that we didn't get to do last year. We relaxed way more. We celebrated his birthday again as well as our engagement!. I couldnt have asked for a better place to celebrate and relax. Every morning we were greeted by little bunnies down the driveway, so cute. We saw deer right outside the front porch at sunrise. Just beautiful. The best.
