This beautifully renovated 1925 schoolhouse has breathtaking views of the peaks of Beech mountain and White Top, Virginia's second highest mountain. Near the Virginia Creeper Trail, The AT, zip lining and more, this is a true mountain retreat.
- We have a separate living space on the property and we ask that you be respectful of our privacy, just as we will respect yours.
-With the ability to accommodate up to eight people, we understand and encourage you to hang out and enjoy each others company, we just ask that be mindful of your volume after 10:00pm. We ask that you give us prior notice for events involving guests who are not included in the original booking. Additional overnight accommodations are available upon request.
- Cleaning: With our remote location, critters are an issue, so trash must be put into the provided cans and the lids securely attached. If your can is full and the lid won't stay on tight, please ask for another can.
-We ask the courtesy of not leaving dirty dishes in the sink. There is a dishwasher, we are happy to unload clean dishes out of it.
-This is truly a magical place, so relax and take in what the mountains have to offer! Listening to the bubbling brook echo through the holler while you're watching the stars is the most amazing stress reliever. It's sure to melt your worries away.
Our family has been a part of the community in Green Cove, Virginia for well over 100 years. Darlene and David Crank will be your hosts during your stay, your initial contact through Airbnb will be with either Darlene or their daughter Gwynne Virts.
Darlene and David are taking over the Schoolhouse from her parents, if you have stayed with us before you know Bernard and Bonnie. You might still see them here as well, they are just taking more time to enjoy their retirement.
Bernard worked for The Washington Post as a typesetter and Bonnie is an artist, who together raised five children in the home Bernard built in Northern Va. When they retired in the mid 1980's, they turned their eyes to restoring what was one of the first schools in Green Cove, Va. With hard work and lots of help from our tight knit family, they turned a four room school house into a home filled with wonderful craftsmanship and art made by Bonnie and many others that make up the diverse artist community in the surrounding areas. Every room has paintings, stained glass, weavings, blown glass, photographs, and pottery. In the mid 1990's they decided to open their home and have been hosting guests ever since.
David and Darlene purchased the "schoolhouse" as we always called it from her parents in 2014 and have been assisting with the rentals part time until 2017. We are now thrilled to be here full time and love riding the Creeper Trail, hiking and most recently zip lining and looking to find all the other fun and interesting things the area offers.
We are also thrilled that our family is also migrating to the area and will be assisting with their vacation rentals as well and will be able to help with arrangements for larger groups as well.
We love to share what we know about the area and are happy to assist with any questions you have but also don't want to intrude on your vacation so please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or problems.
We are pet friendly and have our own pets on the premises.
