  • peace and quiet

    "I travel extensively for work and stay in hotels for what seems like an eternity. I was working in the area and instead of staying over for the weekend in my hotel room, I decided to find a place up the road in the mountains. I had stayed at several other locations nearby, but they were all booked. I found this one and I was really glad I did. It was just what I needed for the weekend. Very quiet and extremely clean and comfortable. Dianne was great to work with and very accommodating in working with my schedule. The cabin is very homey, well decorated, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The view is incredible from the deck - I spent much time there reading and enjoying the view. If you want some exercise while there, try walking down the road to the pond and back. It almost did me in! Thanks again Dianne for all your help. I hope to be back soon."

  • 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."

  • Buchanan Inn

    "This property is close to many mountain activities, including The Virginia Creeper Trail. One can be in Abington, Va. within 45 minutes, or traveling to the top of Mt. Rogers within 30 minutes. The Buchanan Inn is delightful. We will definitely return."
