About

Turkey Saddle is a unique, modern home perfect for a friends and family retreat -- located ~20 minutes from Charlottesville in Western Albemarle County. 



You will not find anything else quite like Turkey Saddle. This 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath home was designed to fit the natural, wooded landscape. It sits on the edge of a hillside peering above the Mechums River -- where open meadows meet the woods. The thoughtful architectural design (once featured in both "Dwell" and the local, "Abode" magazines) and detail of each space makes you feel immersed in nature. Each room has floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors, a glass breezeway connects two ends of the house and Epey decking meanders around the house, surrounded by professionally managed gardens. Truly a unique experience.



Upon descending to the entrance of the home, there is an expansive wrap-around Epay deck weaving around the property. The deck contains a large outdoor dinning space for 10 - a great place to dine al fresco with the crew! The entrance of the property leads into the main open floor plan containing; a dinning room for suited for 10, comfortable living room and spacious, fully stocked kitchen containing a newly installed gas burning Wolf range top. There is also a "prep" kitchen off the main kitchen (ask us about arranging a Private Chef!).  On the other wing of the main level is the master king bedroom with sliding glass doors that open up into the canopy of the woods behind the house. The master bath contains stand alone tub, expansive walk-in shower with his & her sinks and large walk-in closet. 



On the lower level, below the living room, is a queen bedroom and full bath as well as a newly renovated Theater Room with customized, bench style seating that can turn into 2 twin beds (There is not an actual 5th bedroom at this property. The conversion of the twins beds in the Theater room are to account for that additional bedroom. It is listed as 5 bedrooms to assist with search criteria) . On the other side of the lower level are 2 queen bedrooms with full bath all with plenty of windows to bring in natural light along with black out shades for those sleepy mornings and access to the back deck.



Guest also have access to a well manicured lawn and private gardens on the grounds -- perfect for lawn games or a peaceful place to read and getaway from it all.



There are maintained walking paths around the property, one which goes down to the Mormons River. Great for cooling off on a hot summer day or fishing. 



The property is also equipped with a washer/dryer, house-wide sound system. There is also an office area on the main level for those who need to plug-in for a little work -- a great option for a work retreat!



A long term tenant does live on-site in a detached apartment.

Overall our stay at Turkey Saddle was very good. The house has definitely been used and not as well cared for as it could be but the beds are very comfortable, the house is spacious and beautifully designed and the kitchen is great. We had a few minor issues during our stay with the A/C and the wifi but the owner was incredibly responsive and the issues were addressed immediately. The rental company's responsiveness could use improvement. The playground and garden were great for our kids and there were games and toys available which was wonderful. Overall a very good stay.

Perfect, it was spacious and with a great view in the woods every morning. You wake up with nature and find yourself loving every second of it.

The home was great, but the interaction with GuestHouses was way too formal. And, if you're going to be that formal, then there should be fast responses on topics. On our first night, we reported to GuestHouses that the master bedroom was not heating up. The temperature remained in the 60s. We wrote twice, no response. We had to bundle the entire weekend, including 15-month old.

As for the house: GORGEOUS. So incredible, exactly what we were looking for.

We stayed at Turkey Saddle for Thanksgiving with my family. It was an amazing space and location. We loved the modern feel and were very comfortable. The floor to ceiling windows created beautiful views. Clean and well stocked and they even put out little toiletries in all the bathrooms. The outdoor areas were magical, loved the bridge over the water and the sitting areas to take in the nature everywhere. Guesthouses was very responsive and helpful.
