This charming cottage styled house is the perfect secluded getaway to unplug and refresh in the country. It is decorated and well stocked for your comfort.

Tucked away on a private road (the owners live a little further down on the property) you'll have 16 acres of woods to enjoy. Hike the property and go down to the small creek in the woods, or simply relax & enjoy the indoor spaces.

As expected in this delightfully natural environment, butterflies & wildflowers also mean spiders & wildlife.

The space
The cottage is a fully functioning 3 bedroom 1 bathroom house with everything you need to enjoy your stay except laundry. It is an older home (the original house on the property), so the ceilings are a little lower than average height, and the floors creak. We are always working to improve it, and you can see via my Home Made by Carmona website the projects completed and the ones still to be done for an accurate understanding of the space.

Here are a few answers to those FAQ's:

>Yes, there is a full sized refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen
>Yes, there is a coffee maker, but you must bring your own coffee
>Yes, pots, pans, and other cooking utensils are provided
>Yes, there is a bathtub shower combo
>Yes, common linens are provided (towels, fully made beds & pillows, etc.)
>Yes, there is an iron & ironing board in the cottage
>Yes, there is a TV with over 200 channels available to watch

>No, there is no washer/dryer available
>No, we do not allow smoking or pets
>No shoes past the entryway please
>No hunting or firearms allowed

Items of note:
>We are in a country location, very rural
>We are down a private gravel road
>Part of the property is forest, and that means lots of wildlife!

Rural country living at it's finest!

There is a super Walmart and Food Lion just 13 minutes away for your immediate needs, and two small towns just 15 minutes away in either direction.

If you want a bigger city for shopping restaurants and more, we are 30 minutes from Danville, 45 minutes from Greensboro, and 50 minutes from VIR for the racing fans.

As a design blogger, a homeschooling mom, and keeper of my country property I'm always busy, but I do enjoy woodworking in my spare time, and my husband and I are also huge board game geeks as a hobby.

During your stay

The cottage has a keyless lock (a unique code will be provided each guest before their stay). This means you don't have to interact with your hosts if you prefer privacy, however our main house is just a little further down the private drive, so if you need anything, we are just a message away! I am usually home and available to handle your needs. ;)
