Excellent place to stay when visiting Monticello. Everything is perfect. Large and comfortable room with large patio and back yard.

This studio is a dream place. It’s spacious, modern with every detail thought through. All the way to a sitting arrangement on the small patio outside. Once inside we found nice greeting touches, including a home made banana bread. Coffee, tea and oatmeal packages made for nice mornings. Hand sanitized on the counter was a nice touch in these covid times. Cleaning supplies in the bathroom closet attested to the enhanced cleaning protocol being adhered to. Surrounded by a tranquil VA countryside with deer roaming through, an afternoon tea on the patio was relaxing. My dogs also loved to lie on the grass and watch the scenery. While they could not be left off the leash on the property, because the back yard is not fenced, we enjoyed walking around the spacious back yard and down the quiet country road. We also found a large dog park a short drive away, as well as a few hiking trails. A perfect stay and we will be back.

Excellent attention to detail! The studio is very large and nice decor. Feels like coming home. Homemade fresh banana bread, bottled water and chocolate! Great for our hiking trip. Cozy leather sofa and blankets for watching Christmas movies after exploring Charlottesville all day. Beautiful view from your private patio. It's so peaceful and very gracious host. We really enjoyed all the small things that made our stay so wonderful. Thank you!

Welcome Travelers

     Welcome to Deer Hideout Retreat! We are located in Palmyra, Virginia, with 2 acres of land. There's an abundance to see and to do around here, and we hope you choose our home for your stay. We are far enough outside of the city to enjoy the peace and quiet, but just a short drive to all the action. We are close to Monticello, James Monroe's Highland and 28 minutes away from the city center of historic Charlottesville. There are plenty of vineyards all around us and a couple of orchards, too.

The Space 
     Our guests will be staying on the lower ground level of our home. This has its own private entrance leading to a walk-out patio area with a coffee table, love seat and two chairs. The private guest suite also includes your own bathroom with shower, a wine cooler/mini refrigerator, and a bar area complete with a small sink. We have a queen size bed. If there are more than two guests, we will put out an additional queen size bed. (When booking, please select the number of guests so we can have the bed ready). We have provided a coffee machine (with coffee), tea, utensils, cutting board, plates, bowls, mugs, and glasses. Guests will have absolute privacy during their stay. If there is anything you might need, please let us know and we will do our best to make your stay more enjoyable.
     We live on the top two floors of our home with our dog, two cats, and our child, so you may hear some noise and a few foot steps from time to time, but we always try to keep things quiet. You may also hear an occasional bark or meow. We do not allow our pets into the guest suite. 

Guest Access
     Guests will have the entire lower ground level of our home with its own private entrance. Guests will also be free to roam the property (2 acres). Our property is family-friendly, and there is a large grass area to let your children run and play. 
     We have provided a parking space just for our guests . There will be a grassy hill that leads our guests down to the guest suite entrance.  

Guest Interaction
     We have self check-in and will send you instructions before your arrival. We will be happy to meet our guests at anytime.  
     We do live on the property, however, we give our guests their complete privacy.
     We are both more than happy to help out in any way and answer any questions you might have.

Other Things to Note
     We have an automatic lock on the guest suite door, and the code will be given to you upon arrival. Please use this code when you are entering the door (there is no key). You will type in the four-digit code, and the door will unlock. 
     Upon checkout, please lock the door as normal. That is all we ask you to do. You may message us to let us know that you have checked out.

The Neighborhood
     Our place is located in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by trees and deer. It is a wonderful place to take a nice evening walk while spotting some deer. We are located close to Monticello, James's Monroe's Highland, plenty of vineyards, a couple of orchards, Pleasant Grove Park, Rivanna River, and of course historic Charlottesville! We are far enough outside of the city for peace and quiet, but just a short distance to all the action. We also have a grocery store, gas station, and a few restaurants a couple minutes away. And make sure to try Wahoo BBQ during your stay! We are located just a few minutes from Layz S Ranch which is a wonderful place to get married! If you enjoy adventures, there are plenty of places to visit within an hour drive from us, such as James Madison's Montpelier, Richmond, Yoder's Country Market, Shanandoah National Park, Wintergreen Resort, and so many more places!

Getting Around
     We do live in a rural area, so having a car is a must. Make sure to always watch for deer while driving! Our property is located 26 miles from Charlottesville Airport. We are located far enough outside of the city for your peace and quiet, but still close enough to the city to enjoy a night out. We are also close to plenty of vineyards, and of course Monticello!
