Property description

Coffee in your bathrobe, business or creative conference, family reunion... a lazy afternoon alone or a cutthroat game of Monopoly. Full-out social time or the quiet bliss of listening to a country evening. Biking in the morning, Barter Theatre in the evening...this charming cottage is at the hub of Abingdon's activities.
EXTREME GREEN...tankless water heater, solar assisted electrical, Rain Harvesting System, recycled building materials, water garden, certified National Wildlife Federation habitat.
NOW...About the Guest House! Works of local artists highlight an original mix of eclectic furnishings and vintage carpets for citizen-of-the-world ambiance. Slate and hardwood floors, full kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite countertops let you be in host-in-charge.....or not! And the 12' ceiling with a drowsy fan will put you in a Southern state of mind...right before you doze off!
2 suites with queen beds, 600-thread count sheets and tiled private full baths; there's a 1/2 bath in the hall for guests and visitors. Convenient and comfortable with a whimsical take on tradition. Large living room, dining room, entertainment library of DVDs, books, games.
Perfect for families or meeting up with long-ago neighbors and friends. A great homebase for executive, family or other business travel and for those just moving here, it's a great way to explore the town and see which neighborhood will be a good match. 2 porches (1 screened for privacy) and the sound of frequent train passings carry you anywhere you can dream. If you imagine our entry bridge carrying you to a place unlike you've experienced before, you're right!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

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.

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!
