About Mary Hurst and Russell Fallstad

My partner and I are both artists (violinist and oil painter) in Lewisburg, WV. We have a charmingly unusual house in a great location. We rent it out to travelers as a private cottage. We live just up the street from the cottage, and are available to the guests if needed. We bought an infrared sauna for the health benefits, so our guests get full access to that during their stay.

Mary Hurst and Russell Fallstad purchased this house in 2014

Why Mary Hurst and Russell Fallstad chose West Virginia

This property immediately won us over with its unique combination of a downtown location, a naturally serene backyard, and beautifully expressive mosaic art built in by the previous owners, who are also artists.

Perfect whimsical cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed and then some - washer & dryer, dry sauna, & outside porch to name a few. The bed was comfy and the a/c & ceiling fans kept it a good temperature. There was lots of natural light and live plants. It was in a great location and we wish we had longer to explore the area. Mary was responsive and friendly.

Cute, Colorful & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

2 long time friends living states apart got together for a "Girl's Weekend" to celebrate birthdays and friendship and for this a hotel room was not good enough. I found this little gem of a cottage in Lewisburg with tons of personality and very close to downtown restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed sitting on the back porch and talking for hours and then spent a luxurious day at the Salt Cave & Spa followed by a night on the town. The cottage was filled with amenities and we didn't even miss having a tv. It helped make our weekend great and we look forward to returning next year.

A cozy comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Artist's Cottage is just that! Each day I was surprised to discover something new in Mary's artwork.

The cottage is very welcoming and our hosts could not have been more accommodating and gracious.

We found the cottage very clean and amenities many. There were plenty of towels, comfortable beds and cozy furniture. The kitchen was well equipped with a good selection of cookware and new appliances.

The cottage is conveniently located as described in the Overview. The WV STATE FAIRGROUND is only a short drive away.

We were very pleased to have found such a peaceful oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of FAIR week.
