Fitzgerald Cottage

The Original Summer Kitchen for the Manor House


This very sweet two-story, rustic vintage, brick cottage, whose limestone foundation dates to 1789 is the ideal accommodation for COUPLE’S during your Valley Getaway. From the front porch, you enter the upstairs bedroom with king-sized bed and circa 1840 beamed ceiling. two chairs provide comfy and well-lit seating to enjoy the wall-mounted ROKU TV or your favorite vacation read. A charming dining table for two provides a romantic and intimate setting to enjoy a light meal. Harrisonburg dining establishments nearby offer excellent choices for any meals, from breakfast to fine dining to carry-out, meeting your every dining need.

A half spiral stairway leads down to a 350 square-foot area equipped with a cozy bath area and a mini kitchen. The oversized, 110-gallon whirlpool tub provides continuously warmed water by operating the jets. Add on a box of Duraflame fire logs (RECOMMENDED) at check out for a convenient way to feed the seasonal (October-April) wood-burning fire right from the tub! A European bidet and a hand-held shower device, rather than a separate shower, complete a lovely bath area. Soap, shampoo, bath gel, coffee, snacks, robes, sheets and bath linens are included.

A mini kitchen for preparation of light meals/snacks has an induction cooktop, a small fridge/freezer combo, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, induction compatible cookware, cooking utensils, dishes, glassware, flatware, kitchen linens, and wet bar area.
