Abingdon cottage description

The Meadow Cottage is a charming one level, three bedroom cottage tucked away on a quiet two acre meadow in Abingdon’s historic district. The cottage, built in the 1930's, has been lovingly restored and modern conveniences added with only our guests' comforts in mind!

Decorated in English cottage style, the cottage boasts hardwood floors, bead board ceilings, hand-painted walls and furniture as well as attractive furnishings and antiques. This tranquil hide-away has three bedrooms: a large queen master and two double bedrooms. There is a full bath and laundry area.

A cozy living room and fully equipped country kitchen are centrally located between the bedrooms.Two nice porches offer quiet spots to visit, settle with a good book or simply enjoy the meadow life.

The beautiful back yard offers privacy for outdoor dining and relaxing. A firepit area with Adirondack chairs is a perfect place to enjoy the cool night area with friends or family. Stroll the meadow and if you are lucky you will spot a deer or enjoy watching the golden hawks soar above.

The Meadow Cottage is a short bike ride or walk to dining and shopping areas as well as Barter Theatre and The Virginia Creeper Trail. The trailhead of the Virginia Creeper Trail is about an 8 minute bike ride.

Whether you want a romantic getaway, a weekend with friends on the Creeper Trail or a week-long family vacation, The Meadow Cottage offers a perfect setting with all the conveniences of home.

Complimentary pastries, juices and coffees/teas are provided on arrival morning. Enjoy complimentary passes to the Coomes Recreation Center.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We opened Crooked Cabin Properties in 1991 with the original Crooked Cabin (VRBO# 137446). In 1996, we purchased The Meadow Cottage which was a 1930's mother-in-law bungalow on a quiet, private 2 acre meadow in the heart of Abingdon. We restored the property to its original condition and added new amenities and lovely furnishings. We then went on to restore 2 other properties, The Brook House and The Creekside Hatch--both in the historic district. We love providing guests with the help they need plannig their trip and selecting events and activities. You can view these on our website,

Why the Owner Chose Abingdon:
We chose to buy our properties in the historic District of Abingdon, Virginia because we feel it is important for guests to have the feel of being in the heart of town and having easy access to all the wonderful events and activities that Abingdon has to offer. After staying in cottages in the middle of Colonial Williamsburg and seeing how fun it was to actually be in the center of things...we decided that we would like visitors to experience the same fell in our town. You have the experience of being in SW Virginia's oldest town, yet have easy access to all that the area has to offer in outdoor recreational activities, festivals and arts and music. All of our properties are close to The Virginia Creeper Trail, Barter Theatre as well as great shopping areas, fine dining.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Guests have an easy walk to The World Famous Barter Theatre, Virginia Creeper Hike and Bike Trail, Wolf Hills Brewery as well as great shopping and dining! We are close to TVA lakes, Appalachian Trail, Bristol Race Track, and the Country Music Road. Heartwood Artisan Center and William King Regional Arts Center are only a short 10 minute drive. Guests can enjoy the privacy of the cottage, yet are close to all events and activities. The outdoor dining/firepit area provides a great gathering place on cool evenings. We provide our guests with complimentary passes to the Coomes Recreation Center, a state of the arts facility just minutes from your door...indoor/outdoor pools, tennis courts, exercise facilities, playground, walking trails and skateboard park. We also provide complimentary pastries, juices and coffees/teas on arrival mornings.
