  • College Friends Weekend

    "Four friends of 40+ years spend a weekend together every year at one of our homes. This year we decided to pick a central location so no one would have to drive too far. We were so lucky to find the Crooked Cabin. This is a cozy and charming property close to everything in Abingdon. We were able to do everything we normally do -- go shopping, eat out and in, and just sit around and catch up with each other. The Crooked Cabin was very comfortable. Each room is appointed with lovely antiques and decorations. We slept well in comfortable beds, and we had no problem finding everything we needed for preparing meals in the kitchen. We all agreed that we would recommend the Crooked Cabin and will likely return there for a future girls weekend."

  • Gorgeous Family Reunion!

    "We had such an amazing time at the Eagle Crest Lodge! It comfortably slept our whole family, and had the convenience of 2 kitchens for cooking for our large group! The attention to detail was fabulous. We were able to play ping pong and grill out on the porch overlooking the mountains and the lake, could walk down to the lake for a dip after our long day of biking the Virginia Creeper. An amazing place to be able to have your whole family together in one house and enjoy the lake and mountains!"

  • The best furnished home I have ever rented!

    "I got to stay in this beautiful home for 5 months. I didn't miss my own "stuff" at all because the home has everything, and if I needed something, Charlene and Bill took care of it immediately. I want to thank Bill and Charlene for making my extended stay so comfortable. They are wonderful, thoughtful people. Be one of the very lucky ones to stay here. You will not regret it!"
