Grateful Meadows Sanctuary: Cozy guest cottage!
Welcome to Grateful Meadows, a non-profit farm animal sanctuary. This cozy cottage is nestled at the forest's edge. Wake up to the serene view of rescued donkeys and chickens roaming the meadow. Leave the hustle and bustle behind and enjoy a few nights at this tranquil sanctuary.
You do not need to be vegan to stay with us but we do ask that out of respect to the residents and our mission, do NOT bring animal products with you. We greatly appreciate you respecting our sanctuary.
If you want to plan a party or event let us know before booking.
Due to the size of the cottage (one queen bed) we can only two adult guests.
Not suitable for animals or children under 6 years old.
While staying at Grateful Meadows you're welcome to meet the rescued residents or simply relax and enjoy the tranquility of our sanctuary.
The full private BATHROOM is not in the cottage. The bathroom is in the Guest Lounge (basement of the Hosts House). The Guest Lounge also has a kitchenette (microwave, fridge, sink, hotplate, & griddle), billiards table, darts, & games. This area is only used by guest staying in the cottage.
A complementary breakfast is included. Build Your Own Waffle Bar: we provide all the ingredients. All you need to do is mix the ingredients, add your toppings, and enjoy!
The hosts (Jonathan & Victoria) live onsite but have totally separate living areas. There are no shared indoor spaces.
Please note this cottage is in the country. WIFI is not always reliable and streaming can be slow. There is a Verizon Mifi Hotspot for guest to use. If binge watching Netflix is your perfect vacay, unfortunately we are not the perfect getaway for you. If playing cards, reading a book, or being in nature is your ideal vacation then we've got you covered.
Clean towels every day
Things to know
Once you book your retreat, we will send you a check-in video with instructions and general information about the property. If you would like a sanctuary tour to meet all the rescued residents message us and we will schedule a time during your stay to take you around the property. Hosts live onsite but have separate living areas from guests.
We are in a rural small town so many of our nearby amenities include hiking, kayaking, vintage/antique shops, skydiving, zip-lining, golfing, breweries, and wineries.
The closest restaurants, grocery store, and gas stations are a 10min drive to West Point, VA. There you'll find a few restaurants, Food Lion grocery store, and fast food options.
*Colonial Williamsburg is a 40 minute drive and Richmond proper is 50 minutes away. Both cities offer lots of great places to eat, drink, and entertain.
