Mountain-lovers and trail walkers will love it!

  • 5 of 5

Bath County is a very special place with countless inticements of trails, rivers and streams, lakes, picnic areas, sulfur spring pools, spectacular wildflowers, extraordinary vistas, enchanting drives on back roads is simply a wonderful place to spend with family and friends. The Hemlock (& Holly) are my go-to places to stay in Bath.

The accommodations are truly comfortable, generous and offer very peaceful views from decks and porches. There are antiques and very tasteful touches that make these houses feel like home. Love the wood burning stove and endless wood in February. The Barn Hill Trail is arguably the most beautiful trail in Bath- and you only get access if you stay here! Access to Dairy Barn faculties is another great benefit.

My hesitancy in writing this is that too many will believe me and prices will go up if demand rises!

And Pat is great resource with whom to talk Bath County history!

Comfortable and easy

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable house with plenty of nearby activities. A pleasant hiking trail is just up the hill. A small fishing pond is down the hill. Jefferson Pools are an easy drive. Dining is great at the Waterwheel. Staying in with books was just as pleasant. This house isn't luxurious, but homey and comfortable for our family of five.

Refreshing Family Retreat in Picturesque Mountain Community

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six settled in nicely at Hemlock Cottage for a much needed escape to the mountains. We found the home to be spacious and well furnished. We greatly enjoyed sitting by the wood-burning stove as we played games around the table and watched football on TV. We ventured out for a rejuvenating hike along the 2 1/2 mile trail where we had many photo ops among the breath-taking mountain views and also played along the edge of a rushing stream. We found the local restaurants to be quaint and hospitable with delicious menu choices, but most of our meals were prepared and enjoyed at the cottage. The community recreation center, an old dairy, was charmingly decorated and gave us added enjoyment playing pool, getting in a good workout in the fitness room, soaking in the hot tub, and relaxing in the sauna. Our hope as we ventured up to the Bacova area was for our Florida kiddos to have their first snow experience, and on our last evening and morning of our visit, they did just that as snowflakes whirled through the crisp air and settled among the landscape. What a beautiful winter wonderland! Our family looks forward to returning to Bacova to experience other seasons as well. We recommend this home and community to anyone looking to step outside their busy lives and just relax and refresh in the beauty and charm of this special place.

Wedding for Nephew

  • 5 of 5

10/14 to 10/17/16 Great house to enjoy a vacation at. Had everything we needed and more. Great location and the owner was superb. Really enjoyed the porch. Large rooms, great wood burning stove with plenty of firewood. Close to so may beautiful sights. We were there for a wedding so sightseeing was limited but hope to come back for a week in the future. Leaves were beautiful. Other family had the house next door so it was great to all be so close together. Have never been disapointed with HomeAway. Booked several homes through them!
