We call the renovated Poff House, "The Cozy Cottage." We purchased and renovated the little house to provide a comfortable environment for family, friends, and guests. We have tried to make the cottage a place where family, friends, or guest want to spend some of their vacation time while visiting family members or friends as well as visiting some of the natural and historical attractions in the area. We've tried to furnish it with surplus and used furniture to keep it affordable for short-term renters. Family comes first when it comes to use of the Cozy Cottage. Friends of family can rent it for even less than the already competitive rates.
The living room and master bed room has been furnished with antiques and family hand-me-downs to preserve the feel of an old but simple farm house.
A second bedroom has a bunk bed with a full size mattress on the bottom and a twin on top.
The Cozy Cottage is already serving its purpose. Families have stayed there while visiting the grand parents. Several families have spent some of their vacation in Blacksburg because of the house. A family was there for the funeral of a loved one. A family celebrated a daughter's graduation and a family has used it as headquarters for a wedding. The Cottage has been shared by couples on a football week end. And we hope their will be more.
