“Hands down fabulous for a team retreat!”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Held a 3 day work retreat for a group of 14 people and every single one of us rates the stay as excellent! Tons of space, light, nature and places for breakouts or even personal space. Loved being able to cook together (2 kitchens!) and to play some guitar around the campfire. House was spotless and the staff so friendly, warm and welcoming. Book it!

“The Wescott House was the perfect venue for an intimate mountain wedding.”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Wescott House was the perfect venue for an intimate mountain wedding, with enough amenities to keep everyone amused and beautiful interior and exterior views. It was relatively close to town and to other exciting excursions, especially compared to other cabins in the area, while also feeling secluded and private. I would highly recommend this cabin to any large group looking for a getaway to the Shenandoah Valley.

Liked best: The amazing and beautiful kitchens (and the rest of the interior)
Liked least: Could have had some full-body mirrors - made it a little difficult for the women to get ready.

“Great place for a gathering of friends around food and fireplace”
Reviewed 8 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had an excellent stay at the Westcott House with a group of late-20s/early-30s friends who gather for a reunion each year over the New Year's holiday. Our gathering revolves around food, and the Westcott House was perfect--the kitchen is incredible, with a double oven, large range, two dishwashers, and lots of counter space for prep work. The second kitchen downstairs provided helpful spillover space for baking while meals were prepared upstairs. There was also a great, huge table for serving meals that our entire group fit around. The fireplaces are cozy and allow space for relaxing and reading. Bedrooms are all spacious, and there were enough bedrooms that each couple in our group had their own space--difficult to find in many rentals. The house is quite new, so nearly all fixtures and appliances are in great shape. And the house is clean and well cared-for. Management is prompt to answer emails, and the nearby caretaker was helpful.

Note that the house often caters to large groups and possibly retreats, so there are signs posted with rules and dos and don'ts everywhere, and the thermostats and piano are kept locked to prevent misuse. We understood that this is necessary with large youth groups, but it felt a bit over the top with a smaller group of adults. That made it feel a bit more like we were renting a retreat center, rather than a house. Overall, the space was really great for our needs--spacious, clean, modern, great kitchen--but did not feel as home-y as other rentals might due to the signs and things kept locked up.

“We really enjoy the house each time we visit...”

person found this review helpful

Our company uses the house for leadership training a few times each year. It is perfect for our sessions. Our only complaint is the bugs. I would say that they should use a long hose vacuum to dispose of them over the windows and cobwebs in different areas. Other than that, the management is very responsive to our needs, the wifi works great for a large group, the layout of the home is perfect, and everyone loves the "homey" feeling. We truly enjoy the house and plan to continue to use it in the future. Everyone looks forward to being there.

Thanks, Tamara, for your kind words and for taking a minute to tell others about your time! The bugs are something that we battle during different times of the year. The late Fall is when the problem is, and trust me - we DO vacuum them up several times per week. It's a mountainous environment so they come right back. But thank you for reminding us to keep trying new ideas. Tell me - what other types of things can we do in the future to make Westcott House get a 5 star from you? Our goal is to get a 5 star review from everyone who stays at Westcott House and all other Cardigan Cabins properties. We love feedback from guests. Call or email at any time!
