  • Great farmhouse!


    We stayed in the farmhouse 4 nights with college friends who traveled from Dallas, TX and Little Rock, Ark. The farmhouse was perfect for us. It had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were very comfortable and the fire pit was a bonus. We didn’t know if not having a full bathroom for each couple would work but both bathrooms are large and it was just fine. There is a large half bath downstairs which was very nice. The views from the house are beautiful and we spent a lot of time outside taking them in and enjoying the sound of the creek on the neighboring property. It’s very private but you still see houses close by and the proximity into Abingdon was great. We made a few quick trips to Food City and Starbucks! Our group has already said they want to return next year and stay in this house. The Grahams were wonderful to work with. They gave us great recommendations and were only a text away if we needed them. I highly recommend this sweet house.

  • Everything was perfect!


    We had a great time at the house, everything was perfect! There was plenty of room for everyone, the beds were comfortable and the property itself is beautiful. It was also very conveniently located to the Creeper Trail, where we visited all weekend. I would highly recommend this property!

  • Barter Theater Visit


    This was my third visit to the cozy, yellow farmhouse this year! Two other couples joined my husband and me for a stay on order to see Murder on the Orient Express ar the Barter. Like my previous visit, the house was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the views from the front porch rockers and swing. The delicious chocolate chip cookies awaiting our arrival was an appreciated added touch. The location is perfect for going to Barter Theater and nearby restaurants. Check out is easy. Overall, it's a wonderful retreat!

  • Wonderful house and location


    This was our second stay at the farmhouse. We love the location. Abington is a nice little city. The farmhouse is just 20 minutes from Damascus and the part of the VA Creeper Trail that we like best. The host, Bob is fantastic.
