About the property

Enjoy Damascus in this immaculate home--right in town, steps from the trails!

Beautiful modern and comfortable home in lovely Damascus, "The Friendliest Town on the Trail!" The Virginia Creeper Trail, Rails to Trails award winner, is within sight of the front door, running from Whitetop Mountain to Abingdon, providing hiking and biking family fun for all ages! The Appalachian Trail goes right through downtown, just two blocks away. Fishing on Beaver Dam Creek is practically in the back yard, with the town park, town pool, numerous bike shuttles and quaint shops all within easy walking distance.

Two master suites with king beds and full baths provide a delightful experience for two couples or individuals. Kids will love the bunk beds and day bed with trundle bed in the kids' room and have easy access to the third full bathroom. All linens are included, as well as Lord & Mayfair shampoos and lotions. The stainless steel appliances provide all that's needed for gourmet meals or just a comfortable cup of coffee, with a Keurig coffee maker and coffee/tea provided.

Satellite Direct TV is included!

Outdoors, the gazebo provides a great setting for a cookout (propane grill provided) or relaxing and watching the world go by. Walk or bike through the neighborhood and just enjoy!

About Peg Ayers

We're Bill & Peg Ayers. We discovered Damascus, "The Friendliest Town on the Trail" in early 2008 and we love it more each year! This house was our own until a few years ago when we moved to "the country" just a mile and a half away. We live there with our two spoiled pups, Dolly, a Miniature Schnauzer, and Furby, a Yorkie Mix Bill found wandering down a highway in the rain! And now we have Miss Kitty Mittens, an adorable gray tabby who needed a home! We hated to leave our comfy home with all the renovations we've put into it: a stainless steel kitchen, wood floors, two complete bedroom suites with walk-in closets and beautiful full baths and much more, and we're excited to share it with you!

Peg Ayers purchased this house in 2008

Why Peg Ayers chose Blue Ridge Highlands

We've lived in many places throughout our life together (more than 30 years of marriage) including Wyoming, Ohio, and West Virginia, and we agree that Southwest Virginia is the perfect place to live! All four seasons are amazing, and there's always something to do!

Lovely home in a great location! Everything we needed for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for our family as we gathered for our son's wedding. Peg was such a wonderful communicator; before, during and after our visit! We were greeted with flowers and gifts for the children in addition to the immaculately clean home and grounds. The enclosed garage was especially helpful for keeping all our extra boxes of wedding necessities out of the way until we needed them. We used the gazebo for overflow seating for meals. The living room is very comfortable and makes for a great gathering place for a large family. There was even a high chair, pack and play (already set up and ready!) and glider rocker that made it easier for us with the baby! Peg is a great resource for anything you might need locally. I am so grateful to her for going above and beyond what we expected, and provided help in so many ways. We would definitely recommend this fine home! You will not be disappointed!

We loved Damascus

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the Yeti 100/50 miles endurance race. 9 of us stayed in the house quite comfortably. The location to town with restaurants, shopping and events was great! The house far exceeded our expectations and we would love to stay there again in the future!

Peg made our stay so wonderful, as we escaped Hurricane Irma. Her thoughtful touches and attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Fantastic home!

We love the house and location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property. The house is really close to The Creeper Trail ( maybe 100-150 feet). The house is clean, comfortable and has plenty of room. The bedrooms are very spacious.

Spacious clean house within walking distance of all the bike shops and stores in Damascus

  • 5 of 5

Nice house with plenty of room for big group. Especially liked the open kitchen and dining area and the large den to hang out in and play games with the whole family. Three full bathrooms are a plus! Can walk to all the bike shops to ride the Creeper Trail or to eat or shop in town. Only thing we would have loved, that house did not have, was a fire pit in the back yard. But would definitely stay in this house again!
