West Cottage


This is the West Cottage at Rosegill which dates from about 1720. It was built by John Wormeley along with the main house and the cottage on the east side.

This is the land side of the house, and the Rappahannock River is to the north.

Now let's take a tour of the cottage.

The living room has a great fireplace that was once used for cooking. Note the stone on the right used for sharpening knives.

This is the downstairs master bedroom across from the living room with the big fireplace.

Before we get into specifics on the house, let's first remember what life at Rosegill is. Towering trees over a beautiful lawn. Two lakes with great walks around them. There are all the people you'll be living with in close quarters, sharing a swimming pool, netting crabs at the dock with dogs fighting with crabs, children squealing, guitar music under the stars, and the best swing you ever saw.

It's important to us that everyone be compatible. If this isn't your kind of place, don't want to be part of the scene with dogs, children and families who all love each other, please find another place. And if it doesn't work out, our lease provides for three months notice to cancel by landlord or tenant.

This is Nathan and Stephanie Snead with their three girls, Ella, Nancy and Anne Mitchell. They are in the east cottage on the other side of the main house. The girls love the place and are out riding their bicycles all the time or swinging in the swing.


Rent is $1,100 per month for 2,100 sq ft, with water but no utilities. Tenant responsible for dealing with Dominion Power, telephone, propane, etc. Lawn mowing and swimming pool maintenance by Rosegill.

We have wifi coverage of the main house and lawn with three Apple Airport Extreme routers, which provides great reception for iPhone, iPads, etc. You're welcome to join the Rosegill wifi network with your own Apple Airport routers.

Of course we like dogs, but no cats. Credit check and and excellent references will be required.

The main house is available on VRBO, and we will have some guests who will rent for a week, however we have a local inn-keeper who will handle all this.

We only want to rent to a family who will be living at Rosegill full time, and of course we understand that might include a commute to work.

Rosegill is owned by Rosegill Farm, LLC with an office at 5407 Patterson Ave, Suite 202B, Richmond, VA 23226.

We will have an open house at Rosegill September 23-24, 10AM to 4PM.

Best to let me know if you are coming, and we hope to have some of our family members there to meet you. Please pass this along to anyone you think may be interested. We're only looking for one family/tenant. We want to make sure we get the right one.
