About The Owner

About the Baldwin family:

The Baldwin family has lived and worked abroad and enjoy receiving guests from all over the world. We work hard on our farm tending our vineyard and our flock of sheep and llamas, and hosting weddings and events as well as overnight guests. We are deeply involved in Loudoun County efforts to preserve farmland and the historic and natural heritage of our area, while promoting the the rural economy, including tourism and the arts. We work to make our farm-based 'wool, wine, weddings and weekends' businesses as green as possible. Malcolm serves on the board of the Piedmont Environmental Council, and WeatherLea Farm has been permanently protected by a conservation easement under the stewardship of the Land Trust of Virginia.

The Baldwins purchased this cottage in 1992

We explored Loudoun County and purchased our farm while living overseas, seeing all its wonderful amenities, nearby attractions and possibilities (as described in our property description). We also recognized the great potential of the cottage, first using it as a long-term rental property and more recently as a facility for short-term vacation and rental.

What makes this cottage unique

We offer unusual variety of experience, both rural and urban. Guests may explore a working farm that combines a boutique wine grape vineyard and pastures with peacefully grazing sheep and llamas with guest hospitality and a unique wedding/event space in our classic barn. The cottage is very comfortable, attractive and convenient, and WeatherLea Farm as a whole offers a wonderfully restorative country experience in a beautiful setting with friendly hosts. And just beyond our property lies a whole world of history, nature, adventure, antiquing and more...including immediate proximity to the MARC commuter train, providing easy access to the sights of Washington D.C.

Additional Location Information

We are actually a hybrid accommodation, suitable as a vacation rental but also a B&B -- we provision breakfast foods in the refrigerator for guests to enjoy (and cook, in the case of eggs, bacon and sausage) for the first 1-2 mornings. Guests may bring in and prepare food for all other meals in the fully-equipped kitchen. We are also appropriately described as a "farmstay" accommodation, since observation of the sheep, llamas and vineyard are part of the experience!

We are ideally located for visitors with a wide variety of interests -- history, nature and wildlife, agriculture, bicycling, running and biking, fresh and local food and wine (as well as craft beers), painting and drawing, or just chilling out in our cottage with a good book or movie. (We keep a collection of books and DVDs in our cottages).

For Civil War buffs, we are a short drive from the battlefields of Antietam, Manassas, Monocacy, South Mountain and Ball's Bluff; even Gettysburg is only an hour's drive away. Civil War battle reenactments occur from time to time at all these battlefields. Harper's Ferry, WV -- the site of John Brown's raid -- is 10 miles away at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers. Lovettsville itself was a key border town, as a majority of its residents voted against secession and a number of its young men fought for the Union as part of the Independent Loudoun Virginia Rangers.

We are also only 8 miles from the historic village of Waterford, founded by Quakers, whose residents also voted against secession and served as an important stop on the Underground Railroad. Today, the fabulous Waterford Craft Fair and Homes Tour on the first weekend of October brings thousands of visitors from all over the U.S.

Lovettsville hosts two fun festivals each year -- MayFest and Oktoberfest; Brunswick hosts Railroad Days in October.

Several vendors at Harper's Ferry offer rafting, kayaking, canoeing and inner-tubing on both the Potomac and the Shenandoah.

Home Away from Home, indeed

Wonderful! Perfect, relaxing, accommodating, and gracious. I couldn't have asked for anything. Our trip turned out to be the best, I'v ever had. Location was good. I highly recommend.

What a charmer!!!

The cottage was a warm and welcoming Haven for my Husband and I to call home base while we searched for a new home in the area. Everything from the fireplace, the generously stocked breakfast ingredients and the oh so comfy master bed made our stay both productive, relaxing and restful. We loved seeing the sheep and llamas and next time when it's a bit warmer out we'll look forward to walks visiting the barn and vineyards. Thank you so much Malcolm and Pamela... you'll remain in our prayers!!

Snuggly getaway and beautiful (and fuzzy) views.

Our family of three spent three weeknights at the Shepherd's Cottage just after the New Year during some bitterly cold days. The cottage was warm and we loved the electric fireplace which was perfect and safe for our curious toddler. The well-appointed cottage kitchen was stocked with more than enough for breakfasts, snacks, and we even made a dinner from some of the offerings. The large bathtub was essential for bathing our child. The linens were soft and the mattresses quality, especially the main bedroom with a comfort select mattress. Pamela was attentive and welcoming to our needs throughout the stay. As for the cottage itself, it was more comfortable and beautiful than I've come to expect from similar stays at other comparable cottages and homes. The farm property and vineyard were somewhat beyond our reach because of the below 10-degree temps, but we did venture into the barn where the animals were also seeking refuge from the wind chill. Malcolm shared the story of the farm and the ins-and-outs of managing the animals. We enjoyed our visit greatly and look forward to green fields, walks through the vineyard, fishing in the pond and exploring Weatherlea Farm with sunshine and warm breezes soon.

Beautiful accommodations. Perfectly appointed.

We could not have asked for more accompanying hosts or a more perfectly suited house. Great for a weekend away!

Owner is a real pleasure to work with

I have nothing but good things to say about this rental. We used this place a lanching pad for Harper's Ferry visits, only about 15 minutes away, though you have to pass through 3 states. The place was extremely clean and comfortable. Everything was in good working order, and the farm grounds are really enjoyable to walk around. There was food and fresh eggs left in the fridge. Pam invited us to venture into the vineyards where the pickers were collecting the grapes, which was a real treat for my 6 year old son, along with all the goats and llamas. Pam also gave us a late check out since there was no one after us, which really helped me out after doing the Freedom race. She also followed up on a few things I left behind (unprompted). All in all, she's a great, highly responsive owner, and anyone would be very happy here.
