Built for $500.00 dollars "back-in-the-day," the Earlehurst Cottage was inhabited by The Carters, a humble, cute old country couple. Here, they raised two daughters. Today, the house is tastefully appointed where expected - & comfortable to modern standards - yet, it has been left as charming & cozy as it had always been: with elements of the original decor, windows, plaster walls, etc., being preserved. The Earlehurst Cottage is the essence of a 1930s craftsman-style, well-appointed home.

The space
Nestled in the Alleghany Highlands of the Sweet Springs Valley of Virginia, Beaverdam Falls is an historic series of waterfalls at the headwaters of Dunlap Creek and is the terminus for the Sweet Springs. Surrounded by the verdant George Washington National Forest, our portion at the Upper Falls, displays a constant waterfall of around 40-feet in height and numerous beautiful cascades peppered throughout our creek. The 60-acre private tract of unparalleled Virginia countryside will simply astonish your expectations. As the source of the Falls, Sweet Springs Creek, serves as a long, unique trout stream of calcified rock, chalybeate water, and ancient beaver dams. Beaverdam Falls is a rare place for the lack of stone and the centuries of beavers who have left their trace in & on our creek—and swamp, the Stick Marsh, which has an active beaver dam. Be careful! They do bite!

Guest access
The house, and full 60-acres, but please keep your distance when you stumble upon a campsite.

Other things to note
We are very easy going, but feel free to ask should you have any concerns. Check-in is contactless but we’re usually on the property doing daily maintenance or turning over campsites, and touring guests around; often, we’re just 20-minutes away on our farm in WV should you need anything we are just a call away.

Location

Covington, Virginia, United States

Located just off SR-311, you are located in the middle of “nowhere.” Really...but that’s the point! No worrries though the supermarket and most essentials are less than 15 minutes away in Lewisburg/Union and White Sulphur Springs WV, and Covington, VA while the outskirts of Roanoke, VA are just 45 minutes away.
