The Cottage is a part of Evergreen Lavender Farm. During the lavender season, mid-May to early July, the farm is open to the public and guests are invited to participate in the harvesting, crafting, and distilling of lavender. Guests may pick from the vegetable garden to add to their meals. The Norfolk and Southern train line cuts through Evergreen on its way to Petersburg and Richmond. Trains run through several times a day/night. We love having the train in our community; it brings a nostalgic feel. We hope you will, too. The Cottage makes a great getaway for one or two couples. Children are welcome, but supervision is necessary with a pond located in the back of the property, an active RR track across the road, and farm animals.
Caretakers occasionally may come on the property to take care of the yard.
The home is a part of the farm and sits on 10 acres.
