Welcome to Maggie's Cottage at Brown's Mountain. This is a completely renovated 2 bedroom, 2 full bath cottage that is surrounded by 215 acres of pure country. Once you enter the gate, you will drive over 1 mile to get to the cottage. Views of Old Rag from the front field are spectacular. The stocked 3 acre pond comes complete with a small row boat, so try your luck and fish for blue gills and large mouth bass (catch and release). Fishing rods are available for your use. You will pass hiking trails and steams before spying the cottage, nestled in a clearing in the woods. It is cozy, clean and charming. The master bedroom and bathroom is upstairs, along with a washer and dryer. On the main floor you'll find the second bedroom with 2 single beds and another full bath. The family room has comfy seating to watch DVD's on the flatscreen TV. We do not get any channels on the TV. The adjacent kitchen is brand new, with bar seating for 4. A wrap around open deck and a fire pit in the front yard completes the cottage. Firewood is provided.
Explore all 215 acres. Hike to the 1/2 mile stretch of the Hughes River to fish for rainbow trout. Bring your mountain bikes and explore our trails or just sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery and numerous wildlife. At night, sit on the front porch or at the fire pit and marvel at the stars.
