  • Peace Lodge 8/28/2014 - 8/30/2014

    "Our family group consisting of 8 adults (ages 55 - 65 years old) searched for a place that would accommodate a group our size. Peace Lodge advertised to sleep 10 persons. PL is a beautifully designed structure with high end furnishings built into the side of mountain. Though we are accustomed to mountain roads even on motorcycles, we found the description of the property on several websites to be misleading & needs to be revised. The realtor among us found the property description quite vague & shocking. Advertised sleeping 10 people, thankfully one couple in our party was not able to come at the last minute, as there were beds for only 6 people. A king, a queen and 2 good size twins. The twin beds are also trundle beds which means 2 more people—or 2 couples would have to sleep in same room. Perhaps owner is not aware a number of web sites referencing PL state it accommodates 10 persons as he indicated great concern the drain fields could accommodate 8 persons. This made no sense to contractors among us; if the drain field was approved for 8 persons to live there, then 8 persons for 48 hours should not be a problem. Seating at KIT table is for 5. Seating in LIV RM is for 5. Seating in REC RM is for 4 plus seating for 2 at game table. Seating for 6 on deck. View of river is non-existent except for a couple peek-a-boo places thru trees. Access down to river requires someone in excellent health who can climb lots of steep steps & chicken ladders. The advertised statement “conveniently located 3.5 miles from Route 58” needs to be revised also & the word “convenient” removed. AFTER we had reserved PL, we were THEN informed a 4-wheel drive vehicle was REQUIRED to access the lodge. Owner believed our truck would make trip down to the lodge but not back up. He graciously provided 4-wheel drive Durango…which meant all belongings had to be transferred to his vehicle every time you went back down to house. The “convenient 3.5 mile drive to Rt. 58" is very narrow, winding, steep w/several switchbacks & almost no place wide enough to pass another vehicle. Driver is required to back up to wide spot in road so other vehicle can pass. Thankfully this happened to us only once when my brother had to back up approx. 1/4 mile on narrow, curvy road to allow other vehicle to pass. Owner very friendly, accommodating and if an accurate description of the Peace Lodge works for you, then this is a fabulous place to get away."

  • Girls weekend

    "We really enjoyed our getaway weekend. The cabin was very nice and very clean, a lot of nice touches. Just a few things, cabin sleeps 8-10 but kitchen table and island only seat 4 and the living room chairs were extremely uncomfortable. The driveway was a little precarious too. The cabin had everything we needed. We would stay there again, anytime."

  • Wonderful Private Home In Historic District - Don't Miss It!

    "I am so glad I chose this place in Abingdon. They renovated it beautifully, so that it has every modern convenience but the look of days gone by. The beds are very comfortable...we slept very well. The kitchen is completely outfitted and has high end appliances. The walk-in shower is beautiful. The water pressure could be better, but it wasn't an annoyance. I only mention it in case you want the shower to really blast you. The cozy den has a great TV, and there is a separate living room for those who need more space. The location is superb...right across the street from The Tavern Restaurant, which was excellent. And a short block away from Rain, another good place. Walking up Main Street is a history buff's delight. The town was built beginning in the 1750's or so. There is an excellent little local history and genealogy museum/library in the old train station, within walking distance if you don't mind a walk of about a mile. Lots of shops and galleries are in the neighborhood. We intend to stop here every time we are in Abington. I suggest that local folks who have guests in town and need a couple of extra bedrooms think about treating them to this lovely, cozy home."

  • Family Get to Gather

    "We had a great time in the Fancy Gap area, there were 7 adults and 1, 4 year old. The family enjoyed going down to the lake and exploring the area, with the child. We met some of the families who owned other cabins in the area. The cabin really suited my family and we would like to rent the cabin for 2015 if it is still available for rent next year."
