Our whole experience with LeFay Cottage is summed up in just one word: Magical!
And, if I had just three words, they be: Heart-fueling Memories!
From the moment we booked this cottage, to our actual stay, to the follow-up afterwards, it was all just perfect (really!).
The Cottage: The home is perfectly sized for 1 to 3 couples and it beautifully decorated & appointed throughout. You'll feel right at home the moment you step through the door!
The Location: Beautiful views and a calming country setting are yours as you drive through the gate. Leave your cares behind and enjoy a glass of wine on the deck as you're enveloped by the serene surroundings.
The Owner: Sally Anne is as delightful, caring, top-shelf and first-rate person that you'll ever meet! She truly thinks of everything to ensure your stay is...Magical. I mentioned that our trip was to celebrate very special time with our dear friend and she proactively arranged special reservations for us at The Inn at Little Washington and Tula's Restaurant. We are deeply grateful to Sally Anne for her sensitivity and thoughtfulness in arranging these special experiences.
Sally Anne has taken the traditional idea of an Airbnb to a new level. Offering a beautiful appointed cottage with dreamy decor, luxury amenities and a fabulous location with stupendous views of the spectacular mountains, this lovely cottage felt like home away from home and all set in the heart of wine country. Importantly, my entire family was delighted to have the flexibility of breakfast and snacks at any and all times, versus being locked into a bed and breakfast situation with other people on the timeframes of others. I am up for a 6am work out every day and have found other locations huff and puff at having to prepare something early. Sally Anne was so accommodating and I was able to bring all my own healthy foods to put in the kitchen as if it were my own. Her offering is as beautiful as the cottages offered at The Inn at Little at Washington but for far less, therefore providing one with the opportunity to indulge guests for dinners and wine tours. I applaud her for her vision and creativity...she has provided me with a fabulous opportunity to entertain in the country. I'll be back!
This cottage has all the elements to make a perfect weekend in the country. The owner went out of their way to make the house special. I loved the high end sheets and towels. The living room is charming and we loved sitting on the deck each morning with our coffee. We will definitely return.
This was the perfect place for my husband, me and 4 close friends to spend the night after a delightful dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. The bathrooms were newly renovated and included everything you could need. The beds were comfortable and the deck was relaxing with a beautiful view for our morning coffee/tea. I would definitely recommend and would stay there again.
We loved our stay at LeFay Cottage. The bedding and linens were luxurious and the tableware was timeless. Soothing bath soap and hand lotion was provided. Decorated with antiques and vintage charm, yet absolutely comfortable. The owner Sally Ann offered numerous recommendations for fine and casual dinning, historical sites, wineries and outdoor adventures in the Shenandoah mountains. Stunning views! Pride of ownership in this lovely cottage!!
If you are observant when you drive through the gates of Sally Anne's cottage in Washington VA you'll notice the fairies perched on top of the fence posts. Once you're in the home, however, the charm is real world. The attention to detail is extraordinary - beautiful furnishings, luxurious towels and linens, comfortable bedrooms, wonderful bathrooms. Our first night we had dinner at a great place recommended by Sally Anne. Next night, after a hike, we BBQed on the deck overlooking the spectacular grounds. This is truly a special home, one of the best we've ever stayed in. We can't say enough about the pleasures of the home and the host.
When I saw pictures of LeFay Cottage at Little Washington, I realized it was the perfect place for my friends and me to gather for a small reunion. We grilled on the deck and watched the sun set over the Blue Ridge. Some girls went hiking and the rest of us just enjoyed reading and relaxing in the hammock. It was a perfect stay and Sally Anne went out of her way to make sure all of our needs were met. We will be back for our next reunion. Definitely a five star experience.
