About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 5)

Please Read The Entire Description:

This is a cute 1 bedroom cottage that is walking distance the national forest. There are several trails and rivers within walking distance of the cottage as well. We bought it in 2012 and lived in it for a couple of years and now with the arrival of our third daughter we needed a bigger house so we had move on to a larger house.
The living room has a real stone (hand picked) fireplace with a 150+ year old hand-hewn barn beam mantle. There is a wood stove in the fireplace (firewood provided for a fee). The one bedroom has a queen size bed with Western Red Cedar walls. There is a small 19' TV in the bedroom with a DVD player.

The cottage sleeps two in (in the queen size bed). The maximum occupancy is listed as 5, but at least one of those would need to be a child.

The bathroom has a full size shower/tub, toilet and sink.

The cottage has free wifi. There is a 39' flat screen TV in the living room with cable. The cabin also has a land line phone with free local and long distance (US only). There is also a sectional couch in the living room for extra sleeping.

There is a floor unit ac in the dinning area. The dining table seats 3. The kitchen has a cute little gas stove/oven. There is an over the range full size microwave and a full size fridge too. There is also a toaster and a coffee maker. Sheets, toilet paper and towels are provided. Paper towels are not.

There is a fire pit outside where you can have a small fire if you'd like as well (firewood must be purchased on site). Pets are always welcome but do require a pet fee(s).

We do allow for one night stays, but there is two night minimum for weekend stays (either Friday and Saturday night or Saturday & Sunday nights). Pets are welcome but we do require a Pet Fee The Cottage is a great place to see the stars. On clear nights, you can see thousands of stars overhead. It is a beautiful sight. Also during the spring and summer months, you can see humming birds everywhere. We place feeders off the front porch of the house and have personally seen upwards of 20 birds feeding on them at one time.

Check in time is 4:00 pm until 10 pm and checkout is 11 am. Early checkins, before 4, or Late checkins, after 10 pm, and late checkouts, after 11 am, require a $20 per hour fee. Please ask in advance about late checkins.

No smoking in the cabin. No beer pong or Hookahs. Noise must kept to a minimum and quiet hours are 9 pm to 9 am.
Guests are required to sign a rental agreement upon arrival and a photo ID. For this reason, the person who makes the reservation has to be the there at the time of check-in, unless the contract is signed and arrangements are made for someone else to check-in in advance.

We came to Virginia from Texas so I (Steven) could finish my college degree, but got into the vacation rental business by accident. :) We have four daughters under the age of 6. We have 6 rescue dogs, 5 rescue cats, 3 ponies, 14 goats & about 10 chickens.

We believe service is what sets us apart in the vacation rental industry. Katie & I personally own every cabin that we manage. We check-in all of our guests personally (sometimes even as late as 2 or 3 in the morning with prior approval and a fee). When you arrive, the lights will be on and you will be welcomed and shown around the cabin, unlike most other rentals where you access a lock box and walk into a dark cold house. We are always available. We really mean it when we say that we are always available. If you need us at 4 am or have a problem, please do not ever hesitate to let us know. This is all we do 24/7 and we want all of our guests to have an amazing stay. If something is wrong, we really want to know. We would be honored if you would allow us the opportunity to serve you.

Pets are welcome at all of our properties. If you or someone in your group is allergic to pets or anything else (detergent, air fresheners, etc), please let us know in advance so we can discuss this prior to your booking and then also prior to your arrival. Because this is a real cottage, there are things you should expect to find in an older real cottage such as spider webs (we clean them for every guest but they do reappear quickly), ladybugs, insects, tiny critters & stink bug(s) during certain times of the year.

All pet fee(s), early/late check-in or late check-out, firewood or extra person fees are not refundable once paid.
Failure to show up/check in or contact owner before midnight of day of arrival will result in cancellation. Host reserves the right to rebook property if guest does NOT contact owner.

Illegal drugs will not permitted on our properties under any circumstances. Smoking is not permitted inside any house or cabin or on any screen porch. There will be a $750 charge for any smoking in either of these areas. Illegal drugs being used anywhere on the property will result in a $750 charge. Kegs and hookahs are not permitted anywhere on property under any circumstances. There will be a $500 charge should either of these items (kegs or hookahs) be found on the property (this includes outside areas too). If smoking (inside or on screen porches), illegal drugs (meaning what is illegal in Virginia), keg(s), hookah(s) or fireworks (there is a $500 fine for having fireworks or for shooting firearms at a property) are found on the property the guest will be asked to leave and there will be no refund whatsoever for any portion of the stay (including any future days/nights). Guests failing to check-out by 11 am agree to pay $50 an hour for a late check-out beginning at 11:01 am. If the guest is still there at 12:00 noon then then the charge is another $50 and so on with each additional hour the guest overstays their reservation. Late check-outs require prior written permission and applicable late check-out fees to be paid.

Why the Owner Chose Hinton, VA, USA:
We bought this cottage in 2012 and lived in it for the past couple years and with the arrival of our third daughter it was time for a larger house so we are letting others stay here and enjoy it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Great stone fireplace with wood stove and very cute and cozy.
