Rustic 3BR Cabin - Steps From E&H College!

Cabin with kitchen, walk to Emory and Henry College
Discover the village of Emory when you stay at 'The Edmonson Lodge,' a 3-bedroom, 2-bath vacation rental cabin! This lovingly restored and preserved historic cabin was built in 1775 by Col. William Preston Edmonson who led the Virginia militia in the 1780 Battle of Kings Mountain! With 1,600-square-feet of living space, accommodations for 13, and an incredible location steps from Emory & Henry College, this getaway is a rare piece of early American history and the perfect escape!


Bedroom 1: Full Bed, 2 Twin Beds | Bedroom 2: Full Bed, 2 Twin Beds | Bedroom 3: Full Bed, 2 Twin Beds | Living Room: Twin Bed

Step into this historic story and a half cabin to find all the comforts of home with antique furnishings, log walls with chinking, hand hewn exposed beam ceilings, wood plank floors, and old-time decor. Throughout ‘The Edmonson Lodge’ you'll find 3 wood-burning stoves, central heating and air conditioning, and a spacious main living area.

During downtime, relax in front of the fire while reading a good book, or head outside to lounge on the covered brick porch. A porch swing, 2 picnic tables, and grill are also outside, making it easy to entertain guests.

When you get hungry, whip up your favorite recipe using the kitchenette inside or cook your favorite meats and veggies outside on the grill. With so many dining options in and out, you'll have no trouble deciding where to sit!

After a day of trekking the local trails, get a replenishing night's sleep in one of 3 bedrooms, all offering comfortable accommodations. As you wake, take a quick rinse in the shower before your next exciting outing!


Ideally located in Emory, you can easily find Emory & Henry College - simply stroll across the street to tour the campus or catch a football game. Nearby you'll also find Macado's serving up tasty sandwiches when you don't feel like cooking!

A scenic 20-minute drive along highway 91 will take you to the notorious town of Damascus, famous for its popular Virginia Creeper Trail for hiking and biking ecstasy. The area is also a great place to spend the day fly fishing or kayaking in Laurel Creek!

Explore more of the natural area at Mount Rogers National Recreation Area or Hungry Mother State Park, both within 40 minutes and offering the serene beauty of evergreen forests and placid lakes.

The historic town of Abingdon is only 7 miles down the interstate, home to several historic landmarks, antique stores, and Mom and Pop shops. Reserve a seat at the Barter Theatre to enjoy an entertaining and professional stage production, and then end your night with a delicious meal from The Tavern or other excellent restaurants in the area! Other charming towns in the vicinity include Bristol and Kingsport.

5/5 Excellent

Rustic but not remote
If we hadn't arrived by car, we would have thought it was 1775. Well, there is electricity and running water and a washer and dryer. OK. Maybe 1775 is a stretch, but you get the idea. The Edmonson Lodge is a gem. We stayed 2 nights for a father/daughter trip to the Virginia Creeper Trail, which is only 20 minutes away. There are plenty of beds and enough room. It's clean and has modern conveniences, except WiFi. We liked that we spent more time chatting and playing cards than watching screens. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway.
