Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We purchased the old farm house so that we could update it and enjoy it while sharing in the care of elderly parents that lived next door. Curtis' Dad built the neighboring home place in which Curtis grew up and he played with the boys that lived in the Poff house. So while location was the main incentive to buy the house there was also a sentimental facet. In those care giving years, we generally came for a week but sometimes those weeks got extended. When we got the house livable we were able to give the parents the privacy of their own home and we had a short retreat. We never had the illusion of making a 'purse out of a sow's ear' as local folks might say but we wanted to blend the past with the present as we furnished and decorated the cottage from attics, consignment and yard sales, and thrift shops. We wanted the cottage to reflect its surroundings and the people of the area. We selected photographs and paintings that featured Virginia artists and scenes that could be seen only a short drive from the house. Occasionally a Kentucky picture or book may show up in the cottage, something that we bring from our Old Kentucky Home. But as a Blacksburg native and a Hokie, Curtis still has much loyalty to his Old Virginia Home.
Why the Owner Chose Blacksburg, VA, USA:
The Cozy Cottage stands out because of its simplicity. There are some unique antiques and some plain old used furniture. But there is a blending of old and new; for example, the master bedstead is antique metal ( as is the rare find metal dresser) but it has an up-to-date memory foam mattress. The property used to be out in the country but now it is less than a 1/4 mile from Blacksburg's City limits. In minutes you can be in town or back out in the mountains. It is almost like having a mountain chalet with pizza delivery service. And no one has ever complained about not finding a place to park.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
In addition to convient location the Cozy Cottage has cable TV, WiFi, a washer and dryer, an almost completely furnished kitchen ( no dish washer). Many guests have called it their home away from home. It is not fancy but it is homey!
