Abingdon cottage description

This historic property is located at 227 East Main Street in the Historic District of Abingdon, Virginia. Enjoy a glass of wine on the covered front porch before walking across the street to enjoy a meal at The Tavern, the oldest building in town. Or, if you'd prefer, cook a gourmet meal in the newly renovated stainless steel kitchen. Take a walk or bike ride on the Virginia Creeper Trail- a 34 mile Rail Trail. Walk to the Barter Theatre, the State Theater of Virginia. Spend an afternoon shopping and antiquing. Visit museums and the Historical Society, to learn about Abingdon's part in the Civil War. You can even take a Ghost Walk late at night. Browse in the book shop and relax in a cafe. Golf, tennis and spa treatments can be arranged.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: We bought this house in 2007. It had been used as a rental property for about 30 years and was very neglected. We spent almost a year on the renovations and are very happy with the results. It truly has one of the best locations in Downtown Abingdon and we hope you will consider renting it for your next vacation.
