Property description

Hello! Welcome to Our Mountain Homeplace. Our lovely cottage is located 12 miles east of Damascus, Va. between Virginia's two highest peaks--Whitetop Mountain and Mt. Rogers Recreational Area. There are three entrances to the Virginia Creeper Trail within 3 to 5 minutes of us. (We are within 5 miles of the beginning of the Creeper Trail in Whitetop Va.) The Appalachian Trail is within a mile of our house. We also have numerous hiking, biking, horseback riding trails, and streams galore for fishing. You might also want to take advantage of the many festivals that happen in this area from Spring to Fall.

Now for a little bit of information about our cottage. The house was left to me by my parents. My husband David and I have lovingly and steadily been completely renovating it. The downstairs level was opened up to our rental customers in 2012. It It has been a work in progress as we strive to make it the best that it can be for our guests!! We are finally ready to open up the upstairs this year, which will give our guests a third bedroom to enjoy.Our house now has three bedrooms, two with queen beds and the upstairs with two twin beds. (For our customers who prefer certain types of mattresses, please note that all beds have pillow top style mattresses). There is also a Queen size sofa sleeper in the Living Room, which we have a foam mattress topper for. Each bedroom has flat screen TV's with their own satellite receivers. All Linens are furnished and we promise that when you stay with us, you can be assured that everything, including bedspreads, are laundered after each customer! We have two full-sized bathrooms. One has a stand up shower and the other has a tub and shower combo with curved shower rod. Both baths are beautifully furnished. You will love our large living room with a 42' wall mounted flat screen TV . It also has an electric fireplace that will keep you toasty when the nights are cool. High Speed Internet Access (WIFI) is provided for those who need their laptops! Our living room has plenty of comfortable seating and its own gorgeous, original hardwood floors.
There is a porch/sun room with sliding glass doors, windows that open on each end, and comfortable seating. You can sit and have your morning coffee while relaxing and watching the world go by! Outside you will find two gorgeous acres with a picnic area that has plenty of seating, gas/charcoal combo grill (charcoal furnished), picnic table, rock fire pit (wood furnished), and several furnished games including horseshoes, badminton, volleyball, frisbee and corn toss. Come stay with us and enjoy our mountain heritage. We will do everything we can to make you feel right at home! We believe our house is best described by one of our recent guests who left this poem for us:

HIGH ATOP A MOUNTAIN
OR PRETTY DARN NEAR
SITS A CUTE LITTLE HOUSE
FULL OF COMFORT AND CHEER
WARM AND INVITING
ONCE YOU STEP INSIDE
THE CORE OF A LOVING FAMILY
IT DOES NOT HIDE
BEAUTIFUL ARE THE GROUNDS
ON THIS DAY IN SPRING
THE SUN KISSES THE FLOWERS
AND THE MANY BIRDS SING
EVERYTHING YOU NEED
IS HERE FOR YOUR PLEASURE
MEMORIES HAVE BEEN MADE
AND OH! WHAT A TREASURE

Manager info

About: Hi, my name is Linda and I grew up in this house and still use it for vacations and family gatherings. I love my country house and do my best to make it warm and inviting for you. My husband and I spend winters doing what we can to make our vacation home better for our customers, so if you have any ideas of things you might like to see to make it better, please leave us a note in our guest book. We use your ideas!!

Why Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, VA, USA:
Our house is very special to us. It was passed to me from my mom and dad - Jess and Mezelle Greer. My husband and I have remodeled it with love and dedicated it to them. Although we have our own home, this one will always remain special. My parents worked all their lives to build and pay for it, so we lovingly share it and our memories with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a quiet, country home where visitors can kick back and enjoy themselves and also enjoy the simple country life of hiking, fishing, biking, picnicking......together with the beautiful scenery, various festivals which are frequent in this area, and of course...the Virginia Creeper Trail. Look for visits from the various wildlife which comes around frequently. There is deer, turkeys, and a bear that wanders around from time to time. Take some time to just sit in the enclosed front porch and marvel at the peace of our country home.
