  • Beautiful Home in a lovely location

    "We rented this home with 5 couples who were there for the purpose of riding motorcycles on the wonderful Virginia/North Carolina roads. We stayed for 5 nights and did 4 day rides out from here. We had 7 couples in total and 2 couples stayed in their sister home, Shady River Cabin. The home met our needs very well and the owner was very kind to us and even drove us in to town to pick up pizza. He also built us a bonfire. One helpful hint if you are traveling as friends/couples: There are 3 full bathrooms,2 of them are inside of bedrooms, (the couple in the master bedroom said "we are living a dream" so put your early risers in those two bedrooms. Great home! We had a lot of fun."

  • Ideal Retreat

    "The French Cottage in Abingdon is the perfect combination of comfort and convenience. Located across from the Creeper Trail and within walking distance to everything you could imagine doing in Abingdon from the Farmer's Market on Saturday morning to the Barter Theater in the evening. If you like dining in, the kitchen in the cottage is fully equipped! I felt at home the minute we arrived."

  • Fantastic Time

    "Our family of four (plus our dog) just spent two days at this cabin for Thanksgiving and had a great time. The cabin is beautiful, we all relaxed the moment we stepped inside. It is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking. The gas fireplace kept us all warm, despite the freezing temps. The cabin is in a development of similar cabins (#18) and it has one of the better placements - the views from the porch and bedrooms are of the woods and farm fields, and it feels very private. Games, books, videos and TV provided. We highly recommend this cabin for your next vacation. Great place to stay if you're touring the Blue Ridge."

  • Perfect location for a girls' retreat

    "Eight adult female family members converged upon this lovely location for what we hope is the first of many Girls' Getaways! It was a perfect meeting place for us coming from VA, SC, NC, and OH. The crisp, frosty mornings gave way to warm and bright afternoons, perfect for horseback riding, hiking, and porch sitting. The on-site staff was attentive but not overly so. They were only a phone call away if we needed them. We kept a roaring fire going in the upstairs fireplace going for most of the weekend just to knock the chill off. The cabin was clean and well appointed. There was plenty of space for all of us. The two little girls who came with us thought the room upstairs in the loft area was built just for them! Large windows in the living room overlook the beautiful pastures and mountains, and we delighted in seeing the horses at a distance each day. Branden, the nephew of the property manager, came over and helped our little ones get up on "Misty" the white horse and ride around the property for a bit. They loved it and he was very good with the kids. Our group is already looking towards a return trip to make this an annual event! Sherman, the owner, was very easy to work with and his communication was always very quick, which I appreciated as the "event coordinator". Thank you for everything!"
