Damascus apartment description
Can you imagine a place that causes you to sit and dream of never leaving...Have you have ever dreamed of drifting off to sleep listening to the calming sound of a river instead of city traffic?
Impossible you say? Not at Riverside view, this 900 sq. Ft. mountain retreat is nestled in the peaceful town of Damascus, Virginia, on the Appalachian Trail and one Block from the Virginia Creeper Trail. Only come if you want a vacation of a lifetime. Always return when you can!
Hiking and Biking are both traditions in Damascus, VA where five trails cross including the AT Trail, Virginia Creeper Trail, Trans-Continental Trail, Daniel Boone Trail and Iron Mountain Trail. Bike shops, both for rental and purchase are bountiful. Don't miss the 1,700 foot drop in 17 miles of gently winding bike trail from Whitetop Mountain to Damascus. Enjoy lunch and travel the final 17 miles to Abinbdon, VA completing the 34 mile Virginia Creeper Trail carved from the bed of a long ago logging train.
Whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter the view is magnificent and the accommodations are too! Folks say the beds are fit for a king, sized for a queen, and are soft enough to make you dream of staying in them the entire trip.

A group of us rented several cottages in Damascus and I would have to say our place was the best! This was very roomy and comfortable with all the modern conveniences.. I usually take these for granted but when I heard other friends' comments we felt very spoiled. Perfect for 2 couples to stay, comfy beds and great for entertaining our friends as well. Nice location right on the river and close to everything. Owners were available next door, friendly but not intrusive. We'll be back!

My husband and I stayed at Riverside View 27-29 August 2010. Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Riverside View is very spacious, and it was spotless when we arrived! The hosts are a super sweet couple, who made us feel very much at home as soon as we arrived. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the pots/pans/utensils you'd need to make meals. We kept the windows cracked at night so that we could hear the creek running. The beds are really comfortable. We can't wait to go back!

The photographs and descriptions do not do justice this is phenomenal accommodation, which is superbly clean and ideally located for a family to enjoy all the outdoor activities that Damascus has to offer. My family and I WILL BE returning some time in the near future. The host and hostess are blessing and the nicest, friendliest of all people - salt of the earth. Simply great.
