Overview

Photos and Description of the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area vacation cottage rental

A wonderful mountain cottage in the beautiful mountains of Virginia!

Hello! Welcome to Our Mountain Homeplace. Our lovely cottage is located 12 miles east of Damascus, Va. between Virginia's two highest peaks--Whitetop Mountain and Mt. Rogers Recreational Area. There are three entrances to the Virginia Creeper Trail within 3 to 5 minutes of us. (We are within 5 miles of the beginning of the Creeper Trail in Whitetop Va.) The Appalachian Trail is within a mile of our house. We also have numerous hiking, biking, horseback riding trails, and streams galore for fishing. You might also want to take advantage of the many festivals that happen in this area from Spring to Fall.

Now for a little bit of information about our cottage. The house was left to me by my parents. My husband David and I have lovingly and steadily been completely renovating it. The downstairs level was opened up to our rental customers in 2012. It It has been a work in progress as we strive to make it the best that it can be for our guests!! We are finally ready to open up the upstairs this year, which will give our guests a third bedroom to enjoy.Our house now has three bedrooms, two with queen beds and the upstairs with two twin beds. (For our customers who prefer certain types of mattresses, please note that all beds have pillow top style mattresses). There is also a Queen size sofa sleeper in the Living Room, which we have a foam mattress topper for. Each bedroom has flat screen TV's with their own satellite receivers. All Linens are furnished and we promise that when you stay with us, you can be assured that everything, including bedspreads, are laundered after each customer! We have two full-sized bathrooms. One has a stand up shower and the other has a tub and shower combo with curved shower rod. Both baths are beautifully furnished. You will love our large living room with a 42' wall mounted flat screen TV . It also has an electric fireplace that will keep you toasty when the nights are cool. High Speed Internet Access (WIFI) is provided for those who need their laptops! Our living room has plenty of comfortable seating and its own gorgeous, original hardwood floors.

There is a porch/sun room with sliding glass doors, windows that open on each end, and comfortable seating. You can sit and have your morning coffee while relaxing and watching the world go by! Outside you will find two gorgeous acres with a picnic area that has plenty of seating, gas/charcoal combo grill (charcoal furnished), picnic table, rock fire pit (wood furnished), and several furnished games including horseshoes, badminton, volleyball, frisbee and corn toss. Come stay with us and enjoy our mountain heritage. We will do everything we can to make you feel right at home! We believe our house is best described by one of our recent guests who left this poem for us:

HIGH ATOP A MOUNTAIN

OR PRETTY DARN NEAR

SITS A CUTE LITTLE HOUSE

FULL OF COMFORT AND CHEER

WARM AND INVITING

ONCE YOU STEP INSIDE

THE CORE OF A LOVING FAMILY

IT DOES NOT HIDE

BEAUTIFUL ARE THE GROUNDS

ON THIS DAY IN SPRING

THE SUN KISSES THE FLOWERS

AND THE MANY BIRDS SING

EVERYTHING YOU NEED

IS HERE FOR YOUR PLEASURE

MEMORIES HAVE BEEN MADE

AND OH! WHAT A TREASURE
