Today it attracts enthusiasts of all ages and skills from all over the world. A MUST DO for your Abingdon vacation!!...MoreCollapse

About the owner: Ever the caretaker...former teacher, travel-agent, B&B owner, happy elder to 2 grown children, 3 cats and an adorable grandson. Texas-raised but Abingdon-infatuated since 1977, I've left weaving, spinning and my country life to focus on redevelopment of this charming neighborhood. My first project was A Likely Yarn (just out the back door) in 2009 and there will soon be another property (built 1859) just down the street ready for retail and residence.
Why the Owner Chose Abingdon, VA, USA:
As to why this particular area of the town, Park St. and its environs are the oldest part of town, once the site of Black's Fort, a pre-Revolutionary outpost. Mileage-wise, with several major cities anywhere from 2 to 5 hours away, Abingdon is close to everywhere and in the middle of nowhere at the same time. Brilliant, creative people in every field are drawn to the privacy and beauty of the area, with the chance to be as public or as private as they wish Diversity is important and we not only tolerate the eccentrics who give the town its character, we encourage them!! It makes for a lovely mix of folks who've come here from all over the world; the endless opportunities for recreation, amusement and small-town conviviality make it the perfect place to visit, the perfect place to live. Brand new construction (2012) with all the comforts and conveniences of home - but none of the responsibilities. Open floor plan and no steps AT ALL from street to screened back porch. Solar-assisted electrical, tankless water heater, dedicated recycling bins.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Accessibility to history...from several wars back to pre-historic activity in nearby Saltville ..nature, colleges, recreation, arts, theatre, music and great people watching. There's at least one story around every corner..and usually someone happy to tell it to you!
