A vibrant and welcoming one-bedroom cottage on a quiet street in Troutville Virginia just off of Lee Highway (US Route 11). The rose-framed porch, cozy kitchen, and comfortable bedroom will tempt you to stay in, but its location is also ideal for venturing out.

Approximately 20 minutes from downtown Roanoke, less than a mile from the Appalachian Trail, and close to both the Blue Ridge Parkway and Hollins University.

I enjoy travel and meeting new people. My work often takes me around the world, but the Roanoke Valley of southwestern Virginia is hard to beat.
