  • Picture perfect setting

    "We will definitely stay at the Meadow Cottage again when we return to Abingdon! Clean, comfortable and right in the middle of everybody and everything we were in Abingdon to see and do. Lovely setting and porches allowed for peaceful consumption of coffee and sweet rolls in the morning, while watching bunnies and birds, and wine and cheese in the evening with the fireflies. Most relaxed we've been in years. Made for a perfect visit to see dear old friends and memorable places."

  • Thank you for the hospitality!!

    "Dianne was great to work with, allowing my retired husband and I to rent the "Little Sister" -- the full basement apartment of this property for two nights while I was working in Independence and Marion -- it is perfectly located between the two locations. The apartment was clean and comfortable and nicer than the pictures showed. The cabin was close enough to Grayson Highland Park that my husband spent a day there hiking!"

  • ALWAYS A GREAT STAY

    "We've been staying here for 3 years now for an old roomates and families reunion football weekend and have always had a sensational stay. The house is comfortable and open with terrific views off the back deck of the mountains. Only 5 minutes from campus and an incredible kitchen for cooking and entertaining. Marta and Gary are awesome hosts and ensure that all your needs are taken care of. Doesn't get any better."

  • Great stay

    "I spent a week at Amanda's hideaway and I enjoyed every minute of it. The house is very cozy & location is great for relaxing and getting away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We went hiking around Grayson Highlands to see the wild ponies, rode the creeper trail and fished in the pond out front. All of the neighbors are very friendly and Amanda's hideaway is located close to a quick stop gas station that's great for getting something you forgot while in town."
