About Sharon Poindexter
Ken Holdaway built this lovely cottage and the 6 acre lake. Ken has lived in Ararat, VA for over 40 years and is a hobby orchardist. His home and orchard is less than 1/4 miles from the cottage. Sharon Poindexter is his significant other and is managing this VRBO site. We love people and know that we will enjoy getting to know the visitors to this beautiful setting in our mountains. Also, since we are so close by, visits to the orchard house is very possible. At the orchard house you will see several kinds of animals (peacocks, chickens, Bengal cats, etc) in addition to all the trees. The orchard has several varieties of fruit trees. There are peach, apple, pear, plum, apricot, fig trees and many different kinds of berries.
Sharon Poindexter purchased this Cottage in 1995
What makes this Cottage unique
The most unique thing about the cottage is that it truly is away from it all. There is one neighbor that lives close enough to make you feel safe, for those who might not really want to be that far away from it all. You are still close to everything you need, groceries, gas, etc.

Great unplugged vacation
This was a perfect unplugged vacation. An intermittent cell signal and lack of wifi guaranteed ample family time. The cottage was very clean and had everything you could think of for the kitchen. They had everything we needed to cook including spices, non-stick spray, etc. Most places we have stayed do not have all of that. The grill was a nice addition and we used it every night. The paddle boards were a ton of fun for the adults, kids, and dogs! Ken even stopped by to make sure we didn't need anything or have any problems. We really enjoyed our stay.
This is a fantastic place to stay would recommend to anyone
Everything was very very very nice it was convenient to everything and would recommend everyone
Beyond amazing experience. Quiet, private, and a perfect place to unwind and disconnect!
We used the cottage during a family trip to celebrate my Mother’s 80th birthday and Easter. The cottage was perfect for 3 adults and 2 children. It was well stocked with the appliances and kitchen items we needed. Very comfortable and private. We even had an Easter Egg Hunt in the yard for our 6 year old great nephew. We would like to use the cottage again for our large family gatherings. Oh yes, the carton of free range eggs was certainly an added bonus. Thank you!
Our favorite get-a-way
We love staying at this sweet cottage. This was the third stay of many more to come. Sharon and Ken are so hospitable and take very good care of their cottage and property.
We had to leave early due to bad weather but enjoyed the day we had there. Everything we needed was supplied at the cabin. Nighttime sky was breath taking. We will return.
