Our romantic, studio style cottage is the perfect getaway. Nestled between Floyd and Roanoke in the heart of the Blue Ridge wine district minutes from the Blue Ridge parkway. Enjoy beautiful mountain views from the large deck while you listen to the tree frogs and crickets. Sheets, dishes, pots pans, coffee, sugar, some spices Free WiFi!
This cottage has a private entrance and is located on a paved country road. It really has the best of both worlds. In the country but 20 minutes to downtown Roanoke. It's three minutes to the Blue Ridge parkway.
Wake up to birds singing in this beautiful cottage where views abound from the cozy bed nestled against a wall of hand planed, re-purposed barn wood.
Enjoy your coffee on the private 10 x 20 ft deck. Take a bike ride on the blue ridge parkway (2 bikes are here) or a picnic lunch (we even provide the basket!)
This cottage is made for the romantic getaway, yoga retreat, bike trip with friends or a wedding venue. The huge field adjoining the cottage is perfect for camping or setting a tent for the big day. The spacious 500 square foot studio style cottage enables guests to visit with friends. Also available are private yoga sessions and onsite massage therapy (please reserve in advance).
The cottage has ac but the altitude provides cool natural air conditioning in the hottest part of the summer so bring a lightweight jacket for nights.
There is a full kitchen with dishes, pots and pans, basic spices and oil to prepare meals and a grocery store ten minutes away at the foot of bent mountain. You should go before arriving.
There is a TV at the cottage and we have wireless internet which usually works great but will be spotty if the weather is bad. I also have cards and board games.
We are centrally located between Floyd (Floydfest) and Roanoke, both rich in culture, local art, music, vineyards and breweries. Also minutes from Silverhearth lodge, a popular wedding venue in this area.
Take a drive to Floyd for lunch at Oddfellas after a wine tasting at Amrhein's winery located in the heart of the Blue Ridge wine district just minutes from the cottage.
If you want more excitement, Roanoke is just a short ride down the mountain or a scenic drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway offering plenty of overlooks, hikes, and picnic spots.
To get a bird's eye view of the Roanoke Valley, visit the Mill Mountain Star and Roanoke Mountain overlook.
Once you get to Roanoke, check out the wonderful restaurants, museums, and the Mill Mountain Theater. Black Dog Salvage (salvage dogs) offers an array of shops featuring artisan made goods and re-purposed and salvaged antiques.
After shopping, take a leisurely stroll by the river on the green way and stop in for a bite to eat at the Wasena Tap Room or the Green Goat. Both are located on the green way.
Guests have their own parking space beside the cottage for easy loading and unloading. The driveway is also for the guests.
The door will be unlocked upon arrival with a key inside.
I give guests their privacy. I try to say hello when you arrive if I'm home but many times I'm not. Feel free to come over and say hello. I'm available for any questions.
I offer massage therapy $75 an hour and private yoga classes $50 an hour. Please book in advance. These can be done inside the cottage , on the deck overlooking the beautiful views, in our TP, or in my massage room in my home next door.
When you arrive the door will be unlocked with a key inside for you. Simply leave the cottage unlocked when you leave .
There are two fruit stands three minutes away offering local produce. We have apple, peach, pear, cherry, fig, and plum trees. Also berry bushes surround the property. Help yourself to any vegetables or fruits in season on the property.
My land goes up the hill and to the right following the fence line. Please respect the boundaries of my neighbors and don't wander into the woods on others property.
Hiking trails are all along the parkway and brochures with trailheads are in the cottage. I recommend Bottom creek gorge five minutes away, Dragons Tooth and Mcafees Knob 30 minutes away in Catawba and the Buffalo in Floyd, also thirty minutes away.
Massage therapy and yoga is offered by Sheri of Butterfly Spa Massage and Yoga.
