Cozy, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely great find, nestled into the countryside and surrounded by beautiful nature. The apt. Was gorgeous inside, with attention to every detail you could imagine. The bed was extremely comfortable as well as the couch! My husband and I were very impressed that Mark, the owner actually stopped by to bring us an extra space heater as it was getting chilly that night. Other than the rain that hurricane Matthew brought, we had an absolutely love stay. Thank you to Donato and Mark.

Great weekend away to bike at Virginia Creeper bike trail

  • 5 of 5

This property has a beautiful view of the river and is right on the bottom of the Va Creeper trail in between Abingdon and Damascus. The apartment was clean and bright and the towels were very plush. There is an outside deck and it was fun to people watch the cyclists during the day and we had a gorgeous moon view over the river at night. Below the apartment is a breakfast and sandwich shop. We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary so thank you! Our only suggestion is that the door to the deck could use drapes because the early morning sun shines intensely right into the bed room.

This place was quite nice. It's located above a little sandwich shop just a few miles from Abingdon. It is on the Virginia Creeper trail and there is a small park on a river across the road. When we were there before and after our daily activities we would stroll on the trail and relax in the little park. We even met the "mayor" of Alvarado who lives a few doors down. It was comfortable and the owners were very responsive to questions. The next time we are in the Abingdon area this is where we will stay.

Quiet and Peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in town for the Bristol NASCAR Race. The Alvarado Station is in a peaceful spot by the river and right in the Va Creeper Trail. Clean with all the comforts of home!

So full of personality and history. What a great choice!!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed two nites over a weekend to ride the Creeper trail. We are in love with this little gem. Was lucky enough to find Mark on the premises when we arrived and he showed us around (as well as the rental next door). The upstairs apartment is everything you need. Smartly decorated, lots of windows, the most comfortable bed ever, great A/C, super safe, calm, inviting. I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it. Each morning I took my cup of coffee and sat out on the porch facing the river and looking over the early bustling of bikers, kayakers, and travelers. Also, you'd be out of your mind if you don't go downstairs and meet Gwen. She makes the the most fabulous breakfasts! As a non-meat eater, I was tickled to see she offered some delicious meatless items. Had the best ever veggie/hummus wrap with house made chips!!!

In a nutshell -- GO HERE! You can be in Damascus in just a few minutes and Abingdon in about 10.
