This house has character!

  • 5 of 5

Delightful old farm house. Wonderfully decorated, with a babbling brook to provide atmosphere. My family had a great time there playing games in the upstairs living room. And played bocci in the side yard. Out of the way in the country a great get away.

VT Graduation

  • 5 of 5

Although the cottage is off the beaten track it is a very warm, welcoming, well appointed accommodation. The remodeling by Jim and Sherry is extremely well done. The comments from the ladies with us continually used the word "lovely" to describe the cottage. Jim also when beyond the call of duty to help through a situation totally apart from anything to do with the cottage. We highly recommend it.

A Hidden Gem in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to the Cottage at Springwood was a most pleasant and enjoyable surprise. Our hosts were so gracious and welcoming. The house is very comfortable and spacious with all of the conveniences of home and then some. The decor is charming and in keeping with the period of the house yet updated to a more contemporary time. The setting is beautiful. Sunday morning we climbed up the hill/mountain behind the house and were able to enjoy nature at its best in the Virginia mountains. We hope to return to this lovely and serene vacation home.
