100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Shepherd's Cottage is located on a working Merino Sheep farm and is only steps away from The James River. This eco-friendly luxury cottage will give you luxury amenities in a private, farm setting. The Shepherd's Cottage features luxury, organic linens, a fenced-in yard, and 90+ acres of farm land to wander, plus James River access. This tiny home is located 2 miles from downtown Scottsville, 15 minutes to a handful of wineries and breweries, and 25 minutes to Charlottesville and Monticello.

The space
Please let me know if you are traveling with your pet. There is a $20 pet fee that will be charged the day of your stay.

The Shepherd's Cottage is a tiny home and is roughly 300 square feet with one large room featuring a queen bed and a full kitchen with dining area. The large, private bathroom has a walk-in shower with two shower heads and a fold-down bench. The Shepherd's Cottage is surrounded by a large, fenced-in yard with several gates that lead to the large sheep pasture. At any given time of day, you will likely see sheep, Odessa the Pony, guardian dogs, or cows out the windows of the cottage.

The Shepherd's Cottage is located on the same farm as The Brown Barn (please see my host profile to view this property). If you are interested in taking a larger family/friend vacation, both units can be rented.

Where you’ll be

Scottsville, Virginia, United States

The neighborhood is farm land. As mentioned in the description, The Shepherd's Cottage is situated on 90+ acres in the middle of a sheep pasture. The James River is a quarter mile of a way. The setting is rural, but downtown is less than 2 miles away and we are roughly 20-25 minutes to Charlottesville, plus a handful of wineries and breweries are within 15-20 minutes away.
