The space

Hi, thanks for finding our listing!

We love our enchanting little cottage, tucked behind a row of bamboo right downtown. Simple, clean, comfortable, and colorful, we guarantee you'll find no other house like it. It's small (perfect for 1 to 4 guests) with a nice flow, and the mosaic tile artwork throughout ignites creative energy. The main bedroom has a comfortable, queen bed with organic linens. The sauna room contains a futon that sleeps two more people. PLEASE NOTE: There are only two beds in the cottage - one queen and one futon. There is also a couch that does not convert to a bed.

Mary's cottage was absolutely perfect for our needs and just as described. It is situated just a couple of blocks from the main shopping street but is really secluded and quiet with a large shaded garden at the back as well as a covered terrace. The interior decor is quite amazing, the theme being highly individual ceramic tiling with some beautiful touches. The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. Communication was top class and Mary could not have been more helpful with suggestions. This really enhanced our stay in what is a truly lovely town in beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended!

What a lovely quirky artist cottage. We enjoyed our stay in the cottage and loved the back porch where we drank our tea in the afternoon. Loved being able to walk into town easily.

Mary's cottage was fantastic for a long weekend with my parents. During the day, I road biked around the Greenbrier Valley and my parents explored the history of the region which is very rich. The cottage was perfect - very welcoming, relaxing and easily walkable to multiple local restaurants in the center of town. Mary was super responsive to any inquiries and check-in/out was a breeze. Highly recommend!!

Do not miss the chance to stay in this one-of-a-kind, art-filled cottage, just a short walk from Lewisburg's charming downtown shops and restaurants. Our hosts included many warm touches, too. Fresh flowers, a note, brochures about the area...we'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

I can't say enough good things about this little cottage. If there were 6 stars to give them, I would. It's unique, artsy, homey, historic, convenient, and cozy. It was hard to leave! I will definitely be staying here again in the future.
