We are a retired couple raising the last of our four children. We devide our time between our farm in Roanoke and our cottage on the coast of North Carolina. Over the last thirty years we have traveled extensively and we would love to host you in our cottage because..... there's no place like home!
Sonya Howes purchased this cottage in 2006
You definitely have the relaxing feel of being in the country with city amenities very close.
Must love animals! They are all around which gave us such a homey feel. My family of 4 stayed over the long weekend for 2 nights and had such a wonderful time at this mini oasis within the city. My girls loved seeing the miniature horses and goat. My youngest fell in love with Duke the cat. The cottage was cozy and warm with everything needed. The layout is great for multiple people to enjoy without disturbing each other. Sonya was a terrific hostess and so very attentive with excellent and quick communication. The cottage was the cleanest I've had to pleasure to stay in. Location was convenient to most parts of the city and getting to the Parkway. I wish we had more time to enjoy more time there. The fire pit looked so inviting! The fresh honey and bread and homemade soap were such a nice touch. I hope we are able to make it back in the future to enjoy more time here!
We had a lovely week-long stay at the cottage. Sonya couldn't have been more helpful and baked us a wonderful loaf of fresh bread with honey. The cottage is decorated with lots of country charm and the grounds are gorgeous. I loved waking up each morning to find the miniature horses outside my window and enjoyed the friendly cat which greeted us at the door. The beds are super comfortable and the location is close to everything we needed. We will be moving to the Roanoke area in a few months, otherwise, we would stay here again and again.
We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful cottage! The cottage was clean, tidy and well stocked with anything that we might need during our stay. Our family especially enjoyed the basketball/tennis courts and game room! We loved the serenity of their farm. The Howes were available, kind and helpful with any needs that we had. It was a great place to retreat to for a Parents College Weekend!
Beautiful cottage, very comfortable master bed and wonderfully quiet setting. I don't usually sleep very well when I go away but that was not a problem at this cottage. Convient location for getting to downtown Roanoke and to nearby trails for running/hiking. I would definitely recommend staying at this cottage.
We had an absolutely wonderful experience at Sonya and Andre's cottage. From the moment we arrived and tasted the delightful bread and honey to the day we checked out was perfect. My husband and I and our three year old son and four month old daughter enjoyed the animals, especially sweet Duke the cat, and the charming cottage for three nights while visiting family in Roanoke. Sonya catered to our every desire immediately and was the most gracious host. We so loved being able to cook some meals at home and not have to eat out constantly. There was plenty of room in the cottage for us all to relax, watch movies and read books and play. If back in Roanoke, we will absolutely be back!
Thank you Sonya and Andre we enjoyed our stay at your cottage, it was so easy to get in and out of town, yet nice and quiet at the cottage, where we were able to sit outside and relax under the shade of the umbrella, and the company of Duke, the cat. Sonya was very attentive and spoiled us with lovely honey from her bees and delicious cinnamon bread, thanks again for your hospitality. The cottage was beautifully decorated and clean and as described on the website, I would recommend it.
We are very central to most everything. Roanoke airport is 7.4 miles from our city farm. Nearest mall is less than 5 miles. We are 5 miles from downtown Roanoke were there are lots of restaurants and there's much to do.
