Great stay. We stayed for 1 night. Plenty of space for the two of us. Ben was never there, but available by phone. The place was clean and tidy and very much a guys space. Close to the subway in a very safe neighborhood. I would definitely stay again!
Ben was very accessible and accommodating. The place was as described, and only three blocks from the N/Q train. He wasn't around, but checked in to make sure everything was okay. Would happily stay there again!
My partner and I traveled to Abingdon just for a short trip over new year's. We had a marvelous time. The backyard of Ben's house is absolutely amazing! We actually hung out there quite a bit to play with our dog. In addition, the house is closely located to Abingdon and Damascus, making day trips to the AT and the Creeper trail a breeze. Ben always gave us quick responses to our questions. The house was truly a perfect fit for us with an amazing view and a great host.
This time I just needed a place to get a night's sleep on the road, so I was only in Abingdon about 9 hours. Ben had to work, but left a key for me. Ben's place was perfect and very convenient. I really appreciated the ease of just being able to stop, sleep and continue my trip early the next morning. This property was at a great stop-over for my trip...thanks!
Ben's place was great. We had a short stay but it was very accommodating. The house was very nice and very close to downtown. So close that we walked there and got some dinner shortly after arriving.
Fantastic stay in Abingdon!! Ben has a great house with a BEAUTIFUL view. Laura (Ben’s fill in) was extremely polite, punctual and helpful. She was there when we got there to give us the key and anytime we had a question she was very quick to respond. His home is beautifully decorated and VERY well equipped with more amenities then anyone could expect for the price. We have made many one day trips from Roanoke to Abingdon to see productions at the Barter Theater and now that we’ve found Ben’s home we are looking forward to extending our stay. We will definitely be back again!!
My husband and I really enjoyed staying in the cottage, which
was conveniently located. The vistas from the front door and the back deck were stunning. The kitchen was equipped well enough that we were able to cook some meals. We also liked the memory foam mattress so well that we are now considering purchase of one. The check-in and check-out process was very easy. Ben and Laura were both very attentive but unobtrusive. We hope to be able to stay here again when we do the other portion of the Virginia Creeper Trail.
Ben has a fantastic apartment in Abingdon. It's close to downtown and has spectacular views - especially at sunset! We found the house to be comfortable with loads of space for the two of us. I'll definitely be getting in touch if we're in town again.
House was adequate for us the bathroom as another guest said "has character" needs some updating, simple and adequately furnished, has cable, wi-fi, a small, reasonably well equipped kitchen, and Ben is a gracious host.
Really great little house, and the view across the street IS gorgeous. The memory foam mattress in the bedroom felt so nice after a long day's bike ride on the Virginia Creeper trail. The whole place was very neat and well-appointed.
We had an inadvertent issue regarding check-in and being able to get into the house upon our arrival, but Ben was extremely apologetic, generous, gracious, and communicative in resolving the problem so that everyone ended up happy. He's a great guy.
We loved Abingdon and would absolutely stay here again!
Very friendly! Looking forward to having them come visit again! Left house clean and put sheets back into washer.
