About Charlene

Bill and Char purchased this Cottage and did major renovation. We have added family antiques as well as local art that we have purchased over the years. It is a 'home away from home' to us. We do allow small pets because we are animal lovers and have a beautiful red bloodhound who occasionally answers to Coltrane.

Charlene purchased this Cottage in 2006

Why Charlene chose Harrison

We love Abingdon and wanted to share the fun of riding on the Virginia Creeper Trail, the wonderful Barter Theatre and our great restaurants. Everything is just steps away!

What makes this Cottage unique

It is great to sit on the patio, drinking a cup of fresh brewed coffee and watch the sun rise oveer the mountains. The Cottages is comfortable and relaxing. It is easy to curl up on the couch on a rainy day and read one of the good books that are available.

We love the fact that we are literally footsteps from the VA Creeper Trail as well as a handful of great restaurants (128 Pecan is our favorite!). The accommodations are wonderful and the owners responsive. I hesitate to say how much we enjoy it because I would like to consider it a well-kept secret! Will be back again - hopefully soon!

                                                                      Wonderful Stay- We Will Be Back!

                                                                      Patrick H.

I don't think we have ever stayed at a rental that was so clean with so many personal touches- fresh flowers, homemade banana bread, etc. The cottage is beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the whirlpool tub. The book created by the owner with all the menus and information is very helpful. We found some great places to eat and really loved the local Farmer's Market. We will definitely be back and are already planning a trip for sometime in 2016.

                                                                      What a treasure this cottage was for us - enough so a few of us stayed an extra week! The location is perfect- walking across the street to the Creeper Trail every morning, and a few blocks to everything else Abingdon was really beyond what we could have hoped for. The cottage is lovely and we immediately felt at home. Enjoyed cooking our farmer's market goodies in the beautiful kitchen and relaxing the end of the day in the cute living area. The beds are wonderful and bath perfect. Your personal touch is seen everywhere. THANK YOU for sharing!! Look forward to a return visit in October.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you for your terrific review! We want you to return and to think of our Cottage as your home away from home. We try to give a synopsis of the many attractions to see and to do in our favorite town of Abingdon. We have tried to add "little extras" so your visit will be more memorable. We are so fortunate to have so many locally owned restaurants and numerous activities to try.

                                                                      Peaceful and Memorable Vacation

                                                                      Frank S.

                                                                      This cottage was just a dream. I am a teacher and I have the summer off. I like to stay in places where my children can play outdoors and learn a lot of history. I stayed with my 3 children for a month. The place was beautiful and cozy. There was always something to do in Abingdon. The owner was very helpful and provided us with brochures that showed what surrounded Abingdon. She also recommended some beautiful places for us to visit. Because of its location, we were able to swim in waterfalls, go antiquing, visit historic civil war sights, and go hiking in other beautiful places. I really loved that it was in a location that allowed us to walk to the main attractions. My children really loved being here and were sad to go.The people in the town were very friendly. I can not say that for the people living in/or renting the surrounding places. Of course there will always be ignorant people any place you go, so it wasn't something I fretted over. Overall, it was a great experience, the owner's were friendly, and the place was amazing. I highly recommend this place to families with young children. One piece of advice, if you are used to ethnic food (ie. Mexican, Thai, etc.) , bring some of your own spices.

                                                                      Frank, I am so sorry about the neighbors. If I had known there was any problem, I would have contacted them directly. I am glad your visit was pleasant. Was it one of the neighbors on Gibson Street?

                                                                      The French Cottage in Abingdon is the perfect combination of comfort and convenience. Located across from the Creeper Trail and within walking distance to everything you could imagine doing in Abingdon from the Farmer's Market on Saturday morning to the Barter Theater in the evening. If you like dining in, the kitchen in the cottage is fully equipped! I felt at home the minute we arrived.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you for the glowing review! We want you to think of this Cottage as your home, too. It is enjoyable to go out to the many restaurants in Abingdon. But every once in a while, it's great to go "home" and sit down to eat on the patio while grilling a nice thick steak and sipping a glass of wine from Katbird's Wine Shop!

                                                                      Location! Location! Location!

                                                                      The WestfallsAthens, GA

                                                                      Not only is that important for purchasing a home, it makes quite a difference in choosing where you stay on vacation. This little cottage was so convenient to absolutely everything. We booked it because it was located at the entrance to the VA Creeper Trail which I had promised to show my husband. The cottage is walking distance to all the attractions on Main Street, several restaurants, and shopping. We were concerned about the close proximity to train tracks, but, surprisingly, the noise wasn't really noticeable!

                                                                      The owner is a chiropractor, so the beds are very comfortable. My husband has a seriously bad back and has often gotten up in the middle of the night and moved to a sofa when we travel, but he slept each night all the way through in the bed. NICE! (You may want to bring your favorite pillows!)

                                                                      This cottage has all the amenities you would need to enjoy your stay. We didn't want for a thing - except a longer stay! Nicely appointed accommodations - it felt like home! Just so comfy and cozy!

                                                                      You won't be disappointed - Trust me- we are some picky guests! We are planning a return visit together this summer and another with just me and my best friend!

                                                                      Our Cottage is ideal. It is located across from the Virginia Creeper Trail which is a hiking and biking trail and also in historic Abingdon. You can walk to many of the shops and spectacular restaurants.
