Reviews for Weaver's Rest Cottage

Berea, Kentucky


Review by Sha on 6/16/16 7:42 AM

Weaver's Rest Cottage is an adorable colorful little cottage, that is very peaceful & relaxing. We loved having breakfast in the sunroom & had a picnic with our furbabies in the yard by the beautiful flower bed. Also, if you forgot to pack something, more than likely the cottage had it (body wash, shampoo/conditioner, coffee/filters, etc.) & there was even a 1st aid kit in the bathroom. Would recommend staying here if your in the Berea area. Thank you Deborah & Ellen for the fudge and letting us & the furbabies stay at your cottage.

 Great, comfortable place!

We really enjoyed our stay at Weaver's Rest. It is very comfortable, tastefully decorated without being fussy. The Christmas tree, for our stay over Christmas week, was very appreciated! It gave it a very festive feel, without being overwhelming. Thanks for taking such good care of us, including some extra attention like dropping off a crock pot! We would definitely be back if we're in the area again, and highly recommend it!

Review by Jane on 10/27/15 8:56 AM

We absolutely loved staying here in this quiet, quaint and historic cottage. My sisters and I get together twice a year in Kentucky, and are always looking for new places to go. This October it was Berea. We had a wonderful time, and a peaceful rest at this cottage where the owner had thought of absolutely everything you could want or need. Comfortable beds, coffee in the morning, cable tv, wifi, clawfoot tub with shower, fudge and fresh flowers. Highly recommended!!

 Lovely Cottage

Always enjoy staying here! It very clean, has a full kitchen, feels secluded even though it really isn't.

Review by Pat on 7/24/15 5:06 AM

I enjoyed my stay at Weaver's Rest Cottage. It provided a lovely, quiet space while in Berea to teach at the Festival of Learnshops. I hope to return in future years. I agree with other reviewers in that the inside of the cottage was nicely decorated and the mattress on the bed was very comfortable. The outside does need some attention. The fresh flowers and fudge was a new cd touch.

 Quiet & Friendly

Review by B&L on 7/10/15 6:36 AM

Our one night stay in early July was very comfortable, quiet and when we couldn't get the wifi working on our lap top someone came right over to help. The kitchen has nice pots & pans, good mattress are some of the more tangible pluses, the decor is nice, not overly cute. Very easy to set up reservation and good communication. We are recommending this cottage to our parents for their trip to Berea.

 Beautiful walking distance to downtown Berea

Review by Nadine on 5/15/15 8:27 AM

We had a great stay at the cottage with our two dogs. If you have dogs, consider this option! the neighborhood is peaceful and excellent for morning walks. We usually stay at the Boone Tavern every time we go to Berea, but since now on we are going to consider this great place! As a friendly suggestion, the bathtub without (high) shower is not practical, but the idea of having an old bathtub kinda style, looks pretty and I understand why is there. After all, great stay!

 2nd time around

Review by monica on 12/1/14 7:49 PM

This was my second stay at Weaves Rest and I enjoyed it more this time. I Think it was because I had been there before and knew what to anticipate. It provides a safe place to walk my two little dogs, which rates HIGH for me. As others have said, it is an easy walk to the Boone Tavern and the Log House. The cottage is clean and well furnished and is infinitely better than staying at a chain motel. I like to come to Berea a couple times a year and hope to stay there again!

 just lovely

Review by Well rested on 11/5/14 5:03 PM

This is a quaint cottage with the benefit of being restful! In the village, but tucked away for great privacy.

 Cosy & Cute

Review by Linda on 10/22/14 12:56 PM

I enjoyed my stay at Weaver's Cottage, especially the peace & quiet. The outside was a bit worn but the inside was spacious and comfortable. The toilet area needs some attention as well as lightbulb replacements in the bedroom ceiling and outside lights. Overall I loved being so close to town and having a quiet space to return too. It definitely beats chain lodging and the price was very reasonable. Thanks for the fudge.


Review by Lisa on 10/14/14 10:07 AM

Weaver's Rest Cottage was in a great location, which I really appreciated. I went for a 3-day silent retreat, and the space afforded me the kind of anonymity I needed to accomplish the task at hand. Overall the house was good. I enjoy homes with character, so I was envisioning how I might clean up the outside, change out the awnings (which seemed juvenile), and level floors, remove doors, etc. My favorite room was the back closed-in porch. A little bistro table with chairs would be the perfect set-up out there. For the price, it was terrific. I look forward to returning.

 Suited me.

Review by David on 10/5/14 10:53 AM

Weaver's Rest Cottage suited me just fine as I explored Berea on foot. I liked the rustic, worn exterior and the clean rooms throughout. I especially liked that the television and such amenities don't overwhelm the place, but, on the other hand, I appreciated the wifi. I do agree with the previous reviewer, in that the toilet mounts need attention. My wife and I will be back in November.

 Not what I expected

Review by BBB on 10/4/14 6:18 PM

When I got there, I expected to see what I saw represented on the website, not a faded, run down looking house. The inside was better, but I also felt it was misrepresented in the photos on the website. The toilet wasn't secured to the floor and the tub sink and toilet were in three separate rooms! Also, the front door was very difficult to open because the bottom lock wouldn't recede all the way into the door frame. All in all, the cottage was clean and the kitchen was well-equipped. With a bit more attention, especially to the outside because it give the first impression, it could be quite lovely. Also, the bed was very comfortable. Still, I most likely wouldn't stay there again.

 We will be back...

Review by Rachel on 9/6/14 8:00 AM

Lovely. Very peaceful. Private cottage walking distance to the village. I am hoping for a return visit soon. :-)

 New favorite place in Berea

Review by Kris on 8/19/14 4:15 PM

Weaver's Rest Cottage was the perfect place for my husband and I as we did a little business and enjoyed downtown Berea. At first it seemed a fair distance from the shops and restaurants but once we did our first walk it is not far at all. Everything we needed was available and it was really quiet. I would suggest that you consider a new mattress. It would just make the visit perfect!


Review by Bonnie on 8/18/14 2:44 PM

Only stayed the one night on our way to Monticello but was very pleased with our choice. Clean, quite with everything we needed. Special treat was a coffee maker, coffee, cream and sugar. No rushing out to Micky D's. Made my morning. Was a little concerned when we did not get a confirming phone call but when we pulled in at 8:00 PM all was as stated and we let ourselves in and made it our home away from home for the night. Will be back for sure.

 New favorite place to stay

Review by Ray and Peggy  on 7/8/14 2:37 PM

Wonderful stay. Cozy and comfortable. Very private yet close to all the charms of Berea. The parking lot was a bonus-plenty of room for our truck and motorcycle trailer. Loved the beautiful flower garden. Thanks Deb for the yummy fudge. Can't wait to come back.

 Traveler's Rest

Review by SusKos on 5/27/14 9:18 PM

Excellent site from which to explore the beautiful Kentucky countryside. My 2 friends and I ventured forth rested and rejuvenated each day. We saw a lot of the area but were ready to return to the porch and cottage and pajamas by 4:00 every night. The review by Blackberry Farmer gives an excellent description of the cottage. The only thing I would add is a little island or butcher block in the middle of the kitchen for a place to chop tomatoes and such. Deb was very kind and helpful with our inability to figure out the DVD machine. We'll be back!

 pet friendly!

Review by monica on 5/11/14 1:10 PM

Loved the cottage and especially the front porch and the yard. It was a wonderful area in which to walk the schnauzers. I also liked the quiet and the proximity to the college. Hope to be able to return in a few months.56888839

 Excellent return stay

Review by Blackberry Farmer on 10/5/13 10:43 AM

Quaint little cottage very close to Berea & Kentucky Artisan Center, our return visit was as wonderful as our initial visit. Host is wonderful, communicates timely and is very gracious. Cottage is well-equipped for short or long term stay, kitchen has provided many meals for our family. Love the full refrigerator and choice of toaster/convection oven & full size oven/stove top and a microwave. Kitchen sink very small & not much counter space but we make it work. The queen bed is very comfortable & living room has a pullout queen sofa bed which is good for kids or non-picky adults. Claw foot tub with hand-held shower a favorite place to relax & unwind. Entire cottage is decorated simply but beautiful. Flower gardens outside lovely to look at, certainly add charm to the experience & shaded lawn with nice table & chairs. Bring bug spray, mosquitoes in warmer weather, but worth relaxing outside. Our family has found our favorite place in Berea at Weaver's Rest Cottage and will continue returning frequently.

 Great Place

Wonerful place to stay, clean and comfortable with everything needed supplied.

Review by lacebo on 6/5/13 1:46 PM

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is really cute and spacious. Will hope the cottage is available the next time we are in Berea. Thanks for the fudge!

 Charming place!

Review by one nighter on 5/24/13 8:14 PM

Great place to stay! I would love to come back and stay when I can spend more time there.


Review by Mo on 3/22/13 9:01 AM

Weaver's Rest Cottage was wonderful! The interior of the home was comfortable, inviting, and very clean. We have absolutely no complaints. I only wish we could have stayed longer! I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a nice, quiet, affordable getaway. Marvelous!


Review by Ben on 3/6/13 1:27 PM

I wanted to find a quiet, close-to-my-home place to take my honeymoon and this cottage was perfect. Very cozy, comfortable and welcoming. The cottage and the town of Berea reminded my wife of home in Europe. I will definitely stay here again!

 Nestled Inn was the feeling ....

Review by Marty on 2/16/13 8:44 AM

Thoroughly enjoyed this sweet little cottage, with all it's history. Was the perfect place to be comfortable 'staying in', as well as close to getting out and about in sweet little Berea !

 Perfect home away from home

Review by Amanda on 12/31/12 9:45 PM

We recently stayed at Weaver's Rest for a romantic holiday getaway. It was wonderful - we will be back again.

 Loved it!

Review by joyhshaper on 12/12/12 8:55 PM

We visited Berea for one day on our 43rd anniversary and we were really glad we picked Weaver's Rest. It was cute, cozy and very homey.

Review by Redpsalm on 11/10/12 8:37 AM

Loved the cottage, cozy, peaceful, great amenities! Fudge was great. Location is secluded, yet close to restaurants and shopping. Just wanted to stay longer. Will be returning.

 sisters getaway

Review by Nana Bee on 10/17/12 8:16 AM

My 3 sisters and I traveled to Kentucky from Iowa for a sisters' getaway. What a charming and peaceful cottage! It was the perfect place for us. We couldn't have asked for a better place for the 4 of us to stay! Clean, comfortable, everything we needed and so reasonably priced. We would come back and stay there again--not only for the quaint, charming cottage, but it's a beautiful area! Thanks so much for the hospitality!


Review by Seniors on 10/16/12 2:40 PM

Darling cottage with peaceful, pleasant surroundings. Very nice attention to detail with amenities, such as coffees, teas, bath supplies. Very spacious for two. I wish we could have spent more than one night. I will certainly recommend it!


Review by askip on 9/18/12 6:50 AM

Thank you for a wonderful stay! The cottage is clean, quiet, and you can tell that the owner really enjoys providing a peaceful rest to her guests!

 girlfriend weekend

Review by juju on 9/13/12 8:47 PM

Very cute, cozy, relaxing. Loved my soak in the claw foot tub and complimentary bath gel. The couch was comfy; the pull-out bed...not so much. Okay for children, but not for an adult. It was a good idea to have e different area for each of the bathroom fixtures. Doors to close off the bedroom, would be an even better idea.


Review by Tickled on 9/7/12 10:38 PM

The cottage was so clean, the area very peaceful. We only stayed one night, but I wish we could've stayed longer! The location is such you can take a nice stroll to town. I would recommend it to anyone, in fact I already did!

 Great location!

Review by AJG on 7/30/12 8:40 AM

The cottage is very peaceful and comfortable. Great location! It was very easy to reserve on-line and the price is certainly right! We would certainly recommend it to others We enjoyed our time in Berea and will return.

 Lovely space

Review by Sharon on 7/24/12 11:37 AM

We loved to go to Churchill Weavers when we visited Berea, so it is very special to have the chance to stay in the little cottage. This trip, I didn't take a class at Kelly Mehler's woodworking school, so I had a chance to explore Berea. What a wonderful location, easy to walk to college square, and to Old Town as well. It was wonderful to have the space of several rooms, as compared to a motel room. Having a kitchen as well made it a perfect spot for us. The little box of fudge awaiting our arrival was a bonus! We'd stay there again and recommend it to others.


Review by joyce on 6/26/12 8:17 AM

We stayed a week at the Weaver's Rest. My husband took a class from Kelly Mehler and I spread out all my fabric in the cottage and made a quilt. Each morning we sat on the porch, had a cup of coffee and filled ourselves with the quiet and peacefulness we had come there to find. I can't imagine how much Ellen and Deb have to pay the Mockingbird to sing those most enthusiastic songs that filled the morning air and our hearts! The cottage is so restful and homey you can believe it's your own just for a while. We are fans of the Churchill Weavers so that made it extra special to be there. It's especially wonderful to stay in a cottage owned by a lovely family who is practically next door. We will definitely come again and again.


Review by Jo on 6/25/12 10:48 AM

I was in Berea (first time in 30 years) for my class Summer Reunion. I found Weaver's Rest Cottage via an online search. It was perfect...lots of space, very cute, nice lawn (with a rabbit, no less), within walking distance of the campus, and less expensive than an impersonal motel room out by I-75. I started each day with a pot of coffee and just relaxed in the peace and quiet of the location. I also hosted three "wine and cheese" gatherings of classmates over the weekend. Everyone was impressed with "my" cottage...think comparison with their impersonal motel rooms out by I-75. I want to return to Berea with my husband and hope Weaver's Rest Cottage is available for us...he'll love it too.

 Like Grandma's

Review by R2D2 on 6/7/12 7:02 AM

Thanks for preserving the cottage for Churchill Weavers and for us. A segment of the past worth showing to the future. My wife and I were delighted to find your lodging alternative to the "crackerbox" of hotels and motels The little frame house reminded my wife of her grandmother's home in Elizabethton, TN, so that added to our joy. Maintain your hospitality as long as you can!


Review by A great place to stay on 5/10/12 6:31 PM

We stayed at Weaver's Rest Cottage for our son's graduation from Berea College. A box of fudge greeted us congratulating our son on graduating from college. The cottage is sweet, beautifully clean and the grounds a gorgeous. A very wonderful place to stay for a very reasonable price. I would definitely stay there again and will recommend it as well!

 Home Away from Home

Review by Bill on 5/7/12 8:09 AM

As soon as I turned a corner and saw the cottage nestled in its leafy green setting, the stresses and strains of my long drive melted away and I felt like I was home. That feeling never went away for the week I stayed. I first came to Berea almost 50 years ago, always stopped at Churchill Weavers and often wondered about the little cottage next to the workshop and store. I never imagined that I would be staying there while I attended Kelly Mehler's woodworking school. Deborah and Ellen made me feel so welcome. The cottage is an oasis in a weary world.

 Nice Getaway

Review by Yanabana on 5/4/12 12:17 PM

We have stayed here on a couple of occasions and enjoyed it each time. Perfect little cottage in a nice secluded area. I love the claw foot tub and colorful decorations. We have family in Berea and when we come down, we have everyone over for dinner. It feels just like home.

 Wonderful Rest Cottage

Review by Carolyn on 12/22/11 11:06 PM

It was simply fantastic - thank you for all the very thoughtful little touches we found all around the cottage.

 Spacious and Relaxing

Review by WEARY TRAVELER on 11/22/11 8:46 AM

After a long day of travelling with the kids in the minivan, this place was a great haven to pull into and bed down for the night before travelling again the next day. It is extremely spacious and very quiet. I have never had such a simple check-in and check-out process. We only wish we could have stayed longer to check out the surrounding town. We are looking forward to staying here again on our return trip!


Review by G and D on 10/17/11 6:48 AM

Quiet setting that is just the right distance from downtown for a walk to see the sights. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return many times.


Review by 50's couple on 10/14/11 7:12 AM

We found Weaver's Rest Cottage to be absolutley adorable. It was our home away from home. Quiet, peaceful & private. A perfect location for a stay in Berea. :)

 Charming Cottage

Review by CraftyLady on 10/7/11 7:14 AM

This is the best place we have found to stay in Berea. Thanks for all of the extras. We will be back.

 lovely cottage

Review by jp on 8/31/11 10:06 PM

Loved our stay at Weaver's Rest Cottage. Great location, adorable place to stay, very quiet. Only one problem, a strong odor of mildew in the powder room. Take care of that and its a definite 5 star!

We enjoyed our stay at Weaver's Rest Cottage. It was very clean, quiet and peaceful. The cottage is charming inside and out.
