                                                            Great location, right off the Virginia Creeper Trail and near to Grayson Highlands State Park.

                                                            Fantastic location if you enjoy the outdoors. House was fine.

                                                            Another great year of biking on the Creeper Trail!

                                                            This was our third time staying at this property. It will not be the last. You cannot beat the location right on the trail. We left from the house and enjoyed a gorgeous trip down to Damascus. The kids played at the park. The family enjoyed ice cream in town. We traveled back to the house and grilled out. The evening ended with a campfire complete with s'mores. The house and location lack for nothing. The entire family agrees this must remain a yearly tradition. Our youngest cried when it was time to leave. It is a perfect way to relax and unwind in an outdoor setting. Everyone appreciates this, young and old. I hope this house will remain available for years to come.

                                                            So much space & just steps from the VA Creeper Trail!

                                                            Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay at the Green Cove Cottage. It was spacious and had everything we needed. The property was beautiful and just steps from the creeper trail! We've never rented a house before and this was a wonderful first experience. It was so nice to have a place all to ourselves instead of cramming into a hotel room. Our boys loved exploring the property. The owners were helpful, quick to respond and provided us with all the information we needed before our stay. We'd definitely rent this property again!

                                                            We had a wonderful stay! The setting is so serene and quiet. We LOVED the lack of high speed internet! Our 3 teens were forced to interact with us 😊 So convenient to the Trail. Excellent movie selection, well stocked kitchen, fabulous views, big fire pit. We hope to return some day!
