Overview

Troutdale House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This beautifully decorated log cabin is located on a rural mountaintop and surrounded by forests, laurel thickets, and many varieties of wildlife. Enjoy many outdoors activities such as hiking the Appalachian Trail, exploring the wild horse colonies of Grayson Highlands State Park (called the 'sweetest miles of the AT [Appalachian Trail]' by Backpacker Magazine, August 2007), or taking a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are stocked trout streams and many historical places in the surrounding areas to explore.

The kitchen is well equipped and all linens are provided. Relax on the big wrap around porches as dusk falls or as the sun rises over the crest and enjoy nature at its finest as the turkeys fly over the ridge, or the deer emerge from their resting places in the laurels. Don't forget your camera!

About Dianne Johnston

My sister and I live in two distant cities in North Carolina. We have always been great friends growing up, but owning this house together has made us even closer.

We hope this house will bring your and your family closer together too.

Why Dianne Johnston chose Troutdale

My sister and I inherited this house from my mom and dad not long after they built it.

We have some great family memories of this log cabin retreat, and hope you will soon too!

What makes this house unique

It is wonderful to get away from it all. If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of urban life, this is the place to come to rest and restore your soul. Our guests often tell us it is one of the most refreshing vacations they have ever had. We know it will be the same for you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful cabin! We have had a wonderful time visiting Damascus and doing the Virginia Creeper Trail as well as seeing the wild ponies at Grayson Highlands! It was nice to come “home” in the evening and unwind, watch TV, play games, and spend quality family time. We also appreciated the responsiveness by you and the property managers with the heat issue the first night. Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your home! We had a great time!

Thank you for the hospitality!!

  • 4 of 5
Dianne was great to work with, allowing my retired husband and I to rent the "Little Sister" -- the full basement apartment of this property for two nights while I was working in Independence and Marion -- it is perfectly located between the two locations. The apartment was clean and comfortable and nicer than the pictures showed. The cabin was close enough to Grayson Highland Park that my husband spent a day there hiking!

One of our best Thanksgivings ever!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned home after spending a wonderful, snowy Thanksgiving in this cabin. With 6 adults & 6 kids, we still had room to escape for some "quiet" time. Everything was just as portrayed in the pictures and actually exceeded our expectations. The cabin stayed very warm even with the cold, windy temps outside. We had all the necessary equipment to prepare our traditional Thanksgiving feast. Many memories were made as well. The younger kids wanted to "stay forever!" Thanks to the owner for calling and keeping us posted on the weather conditions. Perfect location so our Ohio family could meet with our South Carolina family without much traveling for either. A truly beautiful place. We plan to visit again soon.

Great Place for Our Family

  • 5 of 5
Great cabin for an extended family because the first two floors have bedrooms, bathroom, and kitchen. And the top floor has bedrooms and bathroom. So you can have some privacy but still be together. We are not really into roughing it so the satellite TV and movies were good to have. Easy access to trout fishing, day hiking, and horseback riding worked out really well for us.

Great Cabin in a Great Location for Having Fun in the Great Outdoors

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 loved our stay over Memorial Day weekend. The cabin had plenty of room, comfortable beds, and well-equipped kitchens. The rocking chairs and tables on the wrap-around porch were great for reading, enjoying a cup of coffee, and listening to the early morning sounds of nature while enjoying breakfast. Our grown-up kids (in their 20s) enjoyed the broad selection of Disney and other movies that made them feel like they were reliving their childhood, and the large kitchen/dining table was great for card games and puzzles. The cabin's proximity to outdoor recreation locations is a real plus. It is about 30 minute drive to Grayson Highlands State Park and we spent one day hiking from Massie Gap to Rhododenron Gap, about 5 miles round trip, mainly on the Appalachian Trail. The rhododendron were in bloom and we also saw the wild ponies. The next day we drove 35-40 minutes to Damascus and rented bicycles/shuttle service from an outfitter and biked the 18 mile portion of the Virginia Creeper Trail from Whitetop Station to Damascus. It is all down hill at a gentle slope and is perfect for just coasting (i.e., no pedaling required), with overall drop from about 3800 ft to 1800 ft elevation.

More than I could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5
I would like say that this was one of the most memorable weekends we have ever had. The cabin was more than I ever imagined! The pictures on here do NOT do it justice. It was clean and spacious. The surroundings made you feel connected with nature! We were lucky enough to see a few snow showers and building the fire in the fireplace was just right for the weather! The wrap around porch and rocking chairs spoke volumes to make you feel right at home. We will definitely be returning in the future. We were well pleased, the driving distance was reasonable to go into Marion to see the Song of the Mountains at the Lincoln Theater. Thank you so much for sharing you beautiful cabin with us!

Two Sisters, Troutdale, VA is minutes away from many state and national parks with great fishing, amazing bike trails, and some of the finest hiking trails in the south. The changing of the seasons makes every day a new and different experience in these amazing mountains.

Even though it is located in such a remote area, it is still very close to many urban attractions such as the Bristol Motor Speedway (1.5 hours), the Lincoln Theatre in Marion (.5 hours), and Galewinds Amusement Park in Wytheville (1 hour).

Other Activities: hiking, exploring civil war historical sites
