Ivy Cottages

Enchanting retreat nestled in the heart of Ivy, Virginia just outside of Charlottesville.

The retreat is comprised of 5 meticulously restored cottages (soon to be 8), seated on a private, gentle knoll, drawing inspiration from the idyllic charm and character of English country cottages merged with the warmth of southern hospitality. The site once known as Albemarle County’s “First Modern Hotel” circa 1938 has been beautifully revived into its newest iteration. Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway, a family adventure, or looking to accommodate a large wedding or reunion party, our charming, fully-equipped cottages can adapt to whatever your needs may be.


Each cottage is uniquely decorated and furnished to create a bespoke, character-rich home away from home. With our central location that puts you within ten minutes of all the best attractions in our beautiful region, Ivy Cottages is both a stunning destination in and of itself, as well as the best jumping-off point to experience all central Virginia has to offer.
