About this cottage

Sweet Pea Cottage is a cozy retreat nestled in the Shenandoah Valley mountains, with everything you need for your getaway.

The standouts:

- Grill on the deck and enjoy your meal at the picnic table

- Relax around the fire pit or in the sun room

- Swim or fish in two small lakes and the river -- all community access within a few minutes’ drive of the cottage

- Drive 15 minutes into downtown Front Royal for great restaurants and shops -- or to Skyline Drive for great hiking

Enjoy your stay!

The Space:

Sweet Pea Cottage is perfect for families, a couple’s retreat, or a small group of friends.

The cottage includes:

- Two bedrooms to comfortably sleep four

- Large loft area for hanging out

- Sunroom with huge windows looking directly into the woods

- Small deck with propane grill

- Fire pit with picnic table

- Fast Wi-Fi (100 Mbps)

- Smart TV

Two things to note:

1) We have an indoor fireplace, but unfortunately it's not usable and is only decorative.

2) The previous owners smoked, and there's a very slight smoke smell in the house. Most guests don't notice, but if you're very sensitive to it this may not be the place for you.

Sweet Pea has access to two small private lakes, as well as private access to the Shenandoah River. They’re the perfect spots for swimming, fishing, and tubing when it’s warm! Note that neither the lakes nor the river are on the property itself, but are only a 5-10 minutes drive away from the cottage.

Beyond the cottage, we love how close to everything we are. Looking for good restaurants or shopping? Drive 15 minutes down the mountain into Front Royal. Breweries or wineries? There are a dozen within 30 minutes (our favorites are Backroom Brewery and Naked Mountain Winery).

And of course tons of great hiking in Shenandoah National Park -- also only about 15 minutes away!

COVID update: we're taking the coronavirus risk seriously, and have taken steps to ensure you're able to fully enjoy your stay:

- We're using disinfecting spray on all surfaces and handles (doors, appliances) and only using disposable paper towels when cleaning

- Our cleaners are washing their hands thoroughly as soon as they arrive at the cabin

- If a cleaner is showing signs of sickness, they will be staying home and not allowed in the cabin

We hope you enjoy your visit, and want you to stay healthy! If anything, now's probably a better time than ever to get away to the mountains!

    A relaxing birthday getaway!

    Tony was a fabulous host and was very communicative and helpful throughout the entire checking in, and he answered any questions that my partner and I had! The property itself is very well-maintained and has adorable decorating, the detail and care that went into this lovely home is evident. If you want some dinner PaveMint is a wonderful outdoor and indoor BBQ restaurant and the food was AWESOME. There is a close hike called Buzzard Rock nearby that is relatively quick that you don't need entrance into Shenandoah National Park for, and had some awesome views from the top of the mountain. The fire pit after a long day was great to come home to and you really felt in the woods and spaced out from neighbors and others so it was an intimate and delightful experience. Thank you so much for letting us stay and we will be back! :) MaryJo and Zack

    Private getaway

    We had a great time spending a couple days away from city life and getting some quality time outdoors. This cabin is great to use as a launch point to area attractions or to just chill out and enjoy the views.

    this hillside cottage is everything you could dream of and more!

    Gorgeous views in a maintained privacy and convenient barbecue and fire pit. This cozy cabin is the #1 destination for a Shenandoah birthday getaway. Less than twenty minutes from town and well in distance of good eateries and wineries, it's a great spot to cozy up in if you want to get away from the city. Make sure you stop by Soul Mountain cafe after the entrance of Front Royal— it's delicious!

    Front royal hiking, campfire, wineries

    We had a great time staying here. Amazing hikes. Tony helped us with recommendations and answered any questions we had. The ladder to the top floor gave it such a cozy attic vibe. Fire pit was clutch.
