As a local, I have always seen this cottage because it is located across from one of my favorite spots on the river. I was thrilled to find it as a rental. It was immaculate and all I needed plus more was provided. I hope to rent it many more times in the future. Thank you , Dorata.

Quaint and cozy, great location on the trail!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location!!! Walk right outside the door and onto the Creeper Trail. The cottage was exactly as advertised. We arrived a little later in the afternoon, but the AC units were on for us when we got there making it very comfortable inside. It was clean and well-stocked with snacks, towels, etc. The cafe next door had just opened up the week before and run by great people!

The only issue I had was with the cable television channel selection. From what I could tell, there were only seven channels to choose from and the only one that I had ever seen before was the local Fox affiliate. Not a big deal as we spent most of our time on the trail or enjoying the quaint towns of Damascus and Abingdon. They did have a DVD player with a small selection of movies which we watched to unwind before going to bed.

One other comment to add, which didn't bother us at all but may be useful to others. When they say it's on the trail, they mean it literally. I woke up in the morning and stepped outside to get a breath of fresh air, and there was already a dozen cars parked in the lot in front of our cottage and bikers hanging out . If you're looking for daytime seclusion, you're probably not going to get it here. This is a popular parking area for people using the trail, and there is a nice riverfront park that people used to fly-fish or put kayaks in the river. Like I said, they weren't intrusive and it didn't bother us, but don't expect to be sitting on the front porch with your morning cup of coffee enjoying the solitude and nature. My wife and I intend to return in the near future and plan to rent this cottage again!
