There is a chill in the air that will soon turn frigid, leaving many to wish that they could hibernate with the bears. Sadly though, life does not leave enough time for hibernation, which means that we have to weather the cold in other ways. One such particularly pleasant way to fight the chill is by means of a cozy Inn Virginia cottage, nestled in the warmth of a soft, queen-sized bed, sipping a cup of cocoa by a fireplace, and wrapping up in a fuzzy robe.
Soak away the seasonal frost in the bubbling Jacuzzi waters one of the Cottages at Chesley Creek Farm in Dyke, Virginia. These cottages—Creek House, Pines, Ridge, and Laurelwood—offer forested views, secluded romance, and quiet warmth that promises unperturbed relaxation.
Besides the manor house of Middleton Inn in Washington, VA, the establishment also provides both a cozy cottage and a cabin for its guests. With a historic charm that dates back to the 1800s, Middleton Inn’s cottage and cabin displays pastoral elegance the assurance of solitude.
Looking for coziness in Petersburg, VA? Then you’ll love the wooded charm of Scents of Cedar B&B. Resting next to a quiet pond, Scents of Cedar’s cabin is the epitome of a rustic retreat. From the wood walls to the handcrafted quilts, there is no place that boasts a cozier ambiance.
And speaking of wood walls, the frame of Sugar Tree Inn in Vesuvius, Virginia is comprised of 175-year old logs, reused from historic buildings in the Shenandoah Valley. Cuddle up next to a wood-burning fireplace and enjoy a brief respite from the “real world.”
A final cozy cottage option is Woodward House on Manor Grade in Front Royal, Virginia. Woodward House’s Sunrise Cottages are the ideal location for a cozy escape. Fully furnished with Jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces, you’ll find warmth, rest, and renewal in this Shenandoah Valley setting.
