Overview

Damascus Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2-Bedrooms, Queen Sofa Sleeper, 2-Baths, Large living room, porch/sunroom

Hello! Welcome to Our Mountain Homeplace. We are located approx. 12 miles from Damascus, Va. very close to the Green Cove and White Top Creeper Trail Stations. Our house, which we finished remodeling in June 2012, has two bedrooms, one with a Queen bed and the other with a Double bed. There is also a Queen size sofa sleeper in the Living Room. Both bedrooms have flat screen TV's with their own satellite receiver. 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' flat screen TV that has its own DVR. We have just added an electric fireplace in 2014 that will make you feel toasty when the nights are cool. High Speed Internet Access 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 plenty of 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 new picnic area with plenty of seating, gas/charcoal combo grill (charcoal furnished), picnic table, rock fire pit (wood furnished), and several furnished games including horseshoes, badminton 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!

NOTE: We always love hearing from our customers but at times we are out of cell phone range, however, our calendar is always up-to-date and you can make reservations through this site without contacting us first-- if that is more convenient for you. We will always be back in contact with you within a short time period. Another thing to note is that our price (125/night) includes everything so there is never any hidden charges.

About Linda Sharpe

Hi! My name is Linda Sharpe (the one in pink). My sister is Sue Blevins. We grew up in this house and still use it for vacations and family gatherings. Sue still lives within a couple of miles of the house and is close by if needed. We love our country house and do our best to make it warm and inviting for you. Between the two of us we have five children and ten grandchildren. Needless to say, when we are all there the house is bursting at the seams and we love every minute of it!!

Why Linda Sharpe chose Damascus

Our house is very special to us. It was passed to us from our mom and dad - Jess and Mezelle Greer. We have remodeled it with love and dedicated it to them. Although we both have our own homes, this one will always remain special. Our parents worked all their lives to build and pay for it, so we lovingly share it and our memories with you.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a quiet, country home where visitors can kick back and enjoy themselves and also enjoy the simple country life of hiking, fishing, biking, picnicking......together with the beautiful scenery, various festivals which are frequent in this area, and of course...the Virginia Creeper Trail. Look for visits from the various wildlife which comes around frequently. There is deer, turkeys, and a bear that wanders around from time to time. Take some time to just sit in the enclosed front porch and marvel at the peace of our country home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Linda and Sue, You certainly have a cozy, welcoming little cottage here! Reminds me of my grandparents home long time ago without the remodeling you have done! We've spent lots of time on the Creeper Trail (on foot), enjoyed meeting another hiker couple from Italy who had been on the AT 40 days! Having just finished a book "There Are Mountains to Climb" about a woman doing it alone in 1994, I was fascinated to meet them! Such a relaxing front porch. I think the things I enjoyed most was the wonderful fresh, honey suckle-laden mountain air & wild rose smell! Heavenly! And since we live just across from a dairy farm, it was especially welcomed. Loved your pictures, colors, country touches and us cooking in the kitchen. I felt at home! Oh and 2 turkeys and about 20 babies took their family walking across the top of the back yard and to the road at 7:15 am--delightful!

Excellent Home with Lots of Benefits!

  • 4 of 5
Our stay at this mountain cottage was amazing. The house was well kept, clean, and the owners provided many benefits such as games, free long distance phone, wifi, marshmallow roasting sticks, and more! We loved our visit and the price was just right.

The location was perfect for our Virginia Creeper Trail and Grayson Highlands adventures. We do recommend you get reservations for the bikes if you plan to do the bike trails -- the Whitetop rental location is entirely booked up for October and we barely got bikes ourselves.

The ONLY negative to this house is simply this odd little step at the entry way. When you first walk in at the backdoor where the key is located, just about 3' inside the door there is a 2.5" step that is not identified by any contrast tape and the floors are the same material so you cannot see the tiny step nor expect it. Every person in our party tripped on it at least twice. I almost fell on our two year old daughter who had also just tripped on it and was lying on the floor in front of me. I highly recommend that the owners add some contrast tape at least, or even better change the step to a small ramp to avoid injuries of guests.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for the "tip" about the entry step. We will be sure to warn other visitors to watch for this step upon entering the house.

Beautiful Clean Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the cottage was wonderful! The description and pictures are exactly what you will find when you arrive. Our family, grandparents, and my sisters stayed at the house. Everyone enjoyed themselves. We all enjoyed roasting marshmallows, relaxing by the fire, catching fire flies, playing badminton, and horse shoes. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay pleasant and relaxing. The creeper trail is a wonderful experience. We rented from the owners relatives in White Top, did the trail, and the shuttle driver dropped us off at the house on the way back up to White.

Damascus trip

  • 5 of 5
Our recent family trip to Bristol and Damascus Virginia was made stress free and comfortable by the accommodations of Our Mountain Homeplace! The home was exactly as described, an adorable cottage with plenty of space and tons of ambiance. Everything was decorated so tastefully and we had all the comforts of home. The community was quiet and peaceful. A Perfect get-away. My 17 year old son says, "We are definitely coming back here next year!" A very special than you to Linda for helping us with directions when our GPS let us down!!

Another Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in August of 2013 so much that we decided to return with our 16 year old niece this year. All of us loved your cozy, welcoming home. The picnic shelter and fire pit were the highlight of each day and particularly enjoyable after two days of riding the Va Creeper Trail. The sky was so clear that we saw the ISS (International Space Station) each night and our eagle-eyed niece was able to spot the European shuttle, ATV5, one evening. We all appreciated the cleanliness and amenities in your home. Thanks for helping us to make great memories.

Thank you for being such wonderful guests too, (I had a hard time even telling someone had been there)! You have got my husband looking forward to being up there during a clear evening so that he can look for the space station too!! Please come back any time...we would love to have you!!!

Quaint little cottage

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin,which was just as described. The cabin was very comfortable and nicely furnished.

If you like the outdoors, there is plenty to do in the area. We rode the Virginia Creeper Trail, which is a very easy 17 mile, downhill ride from White Top to Damascus.

We hope to visit again in the near future.
