Why Owner/Property Manager chose Warm Springs

This property has been in the owners' family since the early 1900's. It is a perfect getaway for spending quiet time with the family.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is close to nature and some of the unique attractions in the area such as the historic Warm Springs Pools, the Homestead Resort, and Garth Newel. It is the perfect escape from the summer heat and the pressures of the big city. Many opportunities abound for hikers, fishermen, and outdoor enthusiasts in the nearby George Washington National Forest, Lake Moomaw and Douthat State Park. Golfers will enjoy the nearby championship courses at the Homestead.

Combination of convenience to Warm springs area with incredible mountain and pastoral views.

  • 4 of 5

Alvey is clearly loved and enjoyed by the family that owns it, as evidenced by the comfort and decor. It offers a nice mix of things representing personal family ownership, but with a sensitivity to amenities for paying guests.

Alvey Cottage in Warm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this lovely cottage for our 2-night stay and ended up staying a 3rd night! The cottage is wonderfully appointed, with everything we could ever need, but the indescribable view of the Warm Springs gap was what prompted our extra-night's stay. We loved watching how the view changed from a dewy, foggy morning, to peeks of sunlight, to the pink sunset. The back porch was so private we felt like we were on our own little mountain, though a delicious restaurant was within walking distance! The cottage itself was exceptionally clean, and the family room and kitchen had lots of natural light pouring in the windows. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who likes to be convenient to town but desires a quiet, tranquil setting, as well.

Alvey Cottage is a beautiful setting for a family holiday. We found the cottage to be very restful and tranquil with a beautiful view of the mountains from the porch. We enjoyed watching the moon rise over Warm Springs Mountain, the glowing lights from the lightning bugs and listening to the orchestra of cricket sounds at night which helped us feel closer to nature. From Alvey Cottage, we enjoyed short walks down the old country lane which connects Alvey Cottage to the quaint village of Warm Springs, where we enjoyed the library, the historic court house, the art gallery, and the Gristmill. As a family, we had fun playing games, puzzles and playing ball on the lawn. What a lovely retreat when we came back to the cottage after sightseeing. We highly recommend Alvey Cottage.

A True Gift

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at Alvey Cottage. The minute we walked in we felt so at home. The cottage has such a warm feeling and is larger than it looks in the pictures.

The view is gorgeous and I got up early each morning to watch the sun come up. Each evening we could see the deer come out of the woods to feed in the surrounding fields. We watched a Red-tailed Hawk that was sitting in the top of a near by tree.

Our dachshunds went with us and enjoyed long walks with them through the many acres of property.

Hot Springs is a quaint town and the people in the area are the friendliest. My husband and I couldn't get over how welcoming everyone was.

For those that like to go on rides the drive out to Lake Moomaw was very enjoyable.

The owner Stephen is wonderful to work with. He helped make the visit so memorable. We hope to come back many more times in the future.

I really recommend this beautiful cottage.

Thanks Stephen for welcoming us into your home.

Happy Family

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to the property freshly mowed for easy outdoor use. What a delight to sit on the back porch overlooking Warm Springs. With the doors open the breeze flows through the house and is so relaxing. If you paint, draw or photograph, this is the place for you. The cows in the fields were fun to watch and photograph. There are birdhouses all around the fencing - hours were spent watching the busy birds. The "baths" in warm springs were a fun experience too. We found a soccer ball in the cottage and used it each night on the back lawn. Although there are places to eat out, I cooked each night and found the kitchen well stocked with pots, pans and dishes to do all the cooking and eating we did. The window over the sink made clean-up easy too. The beds were comfortable. It was nice not to have to worry about bringing linens or towels like other rentals we have visited. Although we did not use the laundry machines, it was nice to know they were there if we needed them. We will definitely go back to this area and stay at this property; we are just trying to see what works with our calendar.
