About the property

Cottage, 2 bedrooms. 2.5 Baths, sleeps (4-5)

Coffee in your bathrobe, business or creative conference, family reunion... a lazy afternoon alone or a cutthroat game of Monopoly. Full-out social time or the quiet bliss of listening to a country evening. Biking in the morning, Barter Theater in the evening...this charming cottage is at the hub of Abingdon's activities.

Extreme Green...tankless water heater, solar assisted electrical, Rain Harvesting System, recycled building materials, water garden, certified National Wildlife Federation habitat.

Now...About the Guest House! Works of local artists highlight an original mix of eclectic furnishings and vintage carpets for citizen-of-the-world ambiance. Slate and hardwood floors, full kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite countertops let you be in host-in-charge.....or not! And the 12' ceiling with a drowsy fan will put you in a Southern state of mind...right before you doze off!

2 suites with queen beds, 600-thread count sheets and tiled private full baths; there's a 1/2 bath in the hall for guests and visitors. Convenient and comfortable with a whimsical take on tradition. Large living room, dining room, entertainment library of DVDs, books, games.

Perfect for families or meeting up with long-ago neighbors and friends. A great homebase for executive, family or other business travel and for those just moving here, it's a great way to explore the town and see which neighborhood will be a good match. 2 porches (1 screened for privacy) and the sound of frequent train passings carry you anywhere you can dream. If you imagine our entry bridge carrying you to a place unlike you've experienced before, you're right!

Couldn"t ask for a cleaner and well-stocked vacation home. Location was excellent! This was our second stay here and it was as good as the first. We will be returning.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Donna, both for your visit and your enthusiastic praise for Park Street Guest House. When I tell prospective visitors that it's possible to spend a *very* full weekend without getting back in the car, I think they're a bit skeptical but you've vouched for that very fact. The setting is just as peaceful and the VA Creeper Trail just as much fun all year round. Incidentally, the Creeper Trail and several area attractions (including the Guest House) were just filmed for a feature on the Rails to Trails Conservancy, based in Washington DC. Should be up on their website late August! You were great guests and I hope you'll come back and visit soon. Janet

Perfect Place for a Creeper/Barter Weekend w/Friends

  • 5 of 5

Great location, ideal set-up for two couples, lovely screened porch to watch people getting ready to start their ride on the Creeper and the trains rumble by (noise not an issue).Janet has thought of everything. This house includes all the little "extras" that make it seem like a real home away from home -- four outlets in the bathroom, make-up mirror, lots of fluffy towels, plenty of good lighting and ceiling fans everywhere, fully-equipped kitchen, games and DVDs, detergent pods and a washer and dryer just in case you get soaked while biking! Even with a bath in each BR, the powder room came in handy at times. And to top it all off, there's a wildlife sanctuary in the backyard!

Positively Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We chose this adorable cottage for a girls' getaway weekend in Abingdon. We could not have found a more perfect location, nor a more perfect place to stay. The cottage itself is stunning - the gardens, the floors, the decor. Large and open inside with 2 really good sized bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Beds are super comfortable, plenty of towels and adorable bathrooms. Screened porch out back was exactly what we needed to sit until the wee hours of the morning, drinking wine and catching up. The location turned out to be great - across the street from 128 Pecan, a local favorite restaurant, the Blue Hills market (a health food store) and next door to an adorable knitting shop, A Likely Yarn. We walked the Creeper extension (starts just behind the house) to the Farmer's Market on Saturday morning and to the Barter to see Savannah Sipping Society. Once we arrived, we didn't get in our cars again until it was time to go home. Janet was so easy to work with - even left us a couple of copies of a Nashville magazine (since one of us was coming from Nashville). Highly recommend. Will definitely be back. Thank you, Janet for sharing your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: You got all the high well as the pleasure of staying home. Reunions and family travel are where the Guest House really shines, with plenty of room to spread out, great location, personal space/privacy and a truly excellent location! When I built it in 2012, I included all the features I would want in a vacation home and I'm so glad you and your friends enjoyed it. There are new things happening all the time and I can't wait for you to come back.
