Bob and Dianna has been married for 43 years. They have 3 lovely children and 8 beautiful grandchildren. Bob and Dianna are both retired, Bob as an electrician and Dianna as a paramedic. Both enjoy the simple things of life, antiques, their church, and spending time with family and friends.

Dianna and Bob Chandler purchased this cottage in 1973

Bob and Dianna purchased their 121 year old home in 1973. No bath but a two 'seater' outhouse with a path. After many years of remodeling and adding bathrooms they now have a lovely home that you will enjoy while you visit. Bob and Dianna enjoy the village for the slow pace, its history and their neighbors.

The village of Port Republic offers country charm and a slow pace, while you are just 10 miles from the convenience of Harrisonburg, VA.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Dianna and Bob. The hospitality shown by them toward us was amazing. We enjoyed the conversation and learning much about the history of Port Republic. The cottage is exactly as described...it is very charming, warm, inviting, and has a wonderful home feeling within it. We will definitely stay here again, as we both agreed this is the perfect location for a weekend getaway.
Owner's Response: It was an enjoyment having Melissa and Eric here. Their love for each other shown in everything they did. They are always welcomed back to "The Cottage". Dianna and Bob

JMU Graduation weekend

  • Stayed: May 2013
My family had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It is such a quaint little place, and Dianna and Bob went out of their way to make us feel at home. With it being only 15 minutes to JMU in Harrisonburg, it was the best of both worlds - quiet at the cottage and bustling at the University. Thank you!

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure to share with Teresas and Sean this special week-end, James Madision Univ. graduation. A very delightful family and they are welcomed back anytime.
