Damascus House 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.

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!!

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.

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.

We met some friends here to go biking on the Virginia Creeper trail. The house was a terrific place for four people to spend the weekend. Lots of room and extremely clean. The house was exactly as described online and quite charming. The kitchen was great and we prepared all of our own meals there.

Thank you everso much for the use of your home

Thank you everso much for the use of your charming mountain home. My family and I enjoyed our stay here and appreciated the extra effort you both went to to make sure that we had everything we needed for our stay. We came down from northern Illinois to see if this area would be a good place to relocate to. If your hospitality is any indication of the quality of people who call this place "home", then I could see our family making this area "our" home. Thank you again for all the special touches you thought of.

Dear Linda and Sue,

Our peace was found here. Thank you for your hospitality. For 2 evenings & 2 mornings we were "home".

We are a family of 5. My husband David & myself & our children, 12 year old twin boys, Ben & Jacob & our 6 yr. old daughter Meredith.

This is where we needed to be this weekend. Thank you for going above & beyond to provide us with the most enjoyable stay that we can remember. The kids loved the Creeper Trail & the rest of our time was spent here. God bless you for sharing your home.

David

We just returned from a week long stay at Our Mountain Homeplace ~ what a lovely & clean home in a location that was perfect to access the VA Creeper bike trail and Appalachian Trails nearby! The well stocked kitchen was nice to return to each evening to cook a hot meal. We also very much appreciated having wifi and a land line in the home since our cell phones did not have service in the area. Two nice baths with lots of toiletry supplies, two bedrooms, washer & dryer, and two adjoining living areas were perks, but perhaps our favorite room was the cozy warm sunroom/porch! Beautiful views of sunsets!! This was just what we needed as a home base for our active VA adventure week!

Owner's Response: Thank you John and Marianne for the wonderful review, but thank you most of all for being wonderful guests!! We could not ask for anyone who would take better care of our house. We truly appreciate the excellent condition you left it in for us....cleaning was actually pleasant!!
Please come back and visit with us anytime..we would be thrilled to have you. We are so happy you enjoyed our house and our area here in the mountains.

Thank you for providing such a nice and tidy oasis

Dear Sue & Linda,

Thank you for providing such a nice and tidy oasis. My wife and I were very comfortable. She ran her first ultra marathon yesterday (30-miles of the Creeper Trail) and getting a good nights rest before and after is critical. Your little house provided the perfect conditions.

Warm regards, Gwendolyn

Dear Sue & Linda,

Thank you for the use of your "sweet" mountain home. We found it very clean & comfortable with all that we needed for our "awesome" race weekend. The "little touches" you provided were very appreciated! i.e. snacks, house/kitchen extras. The bedding/beds were very comfy and made for a perfect night of rest. The phone service was also a plus.

Hospitality = A+. Thank you again and God Bless. John 3:16
