Unique Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wow. The pictures are fantastic but the real thing is better than the photos represent. Upon arrival, you are greeted with a collection of professional art and a whimsical use of building materials. The owners really put a personal touch into the cottage decor. While a bit smaller, it was perfectly suited for the two of us and our 2 small dogs. The cottage was well furnished, well stocked and one of the cleanest properties we have ever visited. Our host, Mary, communicated with us timely and thoroughly before and during our stay. The note she left welcoming our crew to her rental unit was a great touch. I do not say this often but our expectations were exceeded with this visit. Kudos.

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.

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 Lewisburg

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.
