Charming well maintained and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 of our family there and all were happy with the accommodations. There was only a small problem with the oven but the owner let us know that it was being replaced So next visitors should have a new one!! The owner was ready to help us with anything we needed. There is a nice book in the living room that shows all the local sights and shopping. The area was so peaceful with a walking trail right across the street. The basement bedroom was cooler than the rest of the house so just be prepared for that. Truly a relaxing weekend

A great and relaxing stay at Hemlock Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We rented Hemlock Cottage with a group of friends over President's Day weekend. We loved how spacious the place was (plenty of room for us 6 adults + infant + dogs). The well-stocked kitchen is very open to the dining area and living room, which made it easy to cook while enjoying everyone's company. We cooked two nights while there and made great use of the wood burning stove while lounging around and playing board games. The home also has access to a 2.5 mile private trail, which provided amazing views of the huge pasture area, woods, stream, and grazing horses. We loved the modern conveniences of this home and its proximity to The Omni Homestead (which we visited for an afternoon), while also being able to enjoy nature close by. This rental also included access to the Old Dairy Community Center where we enjoyed their hot tub and sauna - a huge bonus of staying there.

We cannot recommend this rental enough and would definitely stay there again on our next visit to the Hot Springs area.

The house was exactly what we needed for our getaway to the Omni Homestead! We all were amazed at the decor and space. We had a lovely weekend and were even able to accommodate us checking out at noon!

3 night stay @Hemlock Cottage, Bacova, VA (Hot Springs)

  • 5 of 5

Anytime you reserve a property that is owned by Pat Haynes (Bacova Properties), you are in for a warm stay, terrific amenities, and comfort to befit the area and traditions of the Allegheny Highlands of Virginia. You won’t want to go home after staying in the area. You have all the comforts of home @Hemlock Cottage...plenty of room for a family visit and stay. You can be self-sufficient, but the area also has fine restaurants and businesses that can provide you needs. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, my conversations with Pat Haynes, and the beautiful, bucolic surroundings that made my visit relaxing, and purely enjoyable!!

An excellent place for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hemlock cottage was outstanding. The cottage is perfect for a family vacation, with lots of space and large rooms. Check-in and check-out was flawless, and the cottage itself is very well maintained and well located. Highly recommended.

As promised ... and Pat is terrific!

  • 5 of 5

6 seniors looking for a base for a 4 day golf outing. This location fit our needs and more. Pat could not have been more helpful. Parking was easy. The place was clean and the kitchen had what we needed as we made our meals at the cottage. We slept 6 comfortably. We were about 20 minutes from 2 outstanding golf courses and our daily ‘commute’ was breathtaking awashhed in flaming foliage. The pot belly wood stove was a great source of warmth to gather around and visit each night. All in all just what was promised and just what we needed.
