About The Owner

About Ramsey White

I am a retired dentist and currently the Director of the College for Older Adults at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center. My wife is a retired museum director and the author of two books on the material culture of our region - 'Great Road Style' (University of Virginia Press) and 'Back Country Makers' (University of Tennessee Press). We both love old houses and local art. This property reflects those interests.

Ramsey White purchased this Cottage in 2008

Why Ramsey White chose Abingdon

Abingdon is a beautiful small town in Virginia's highlands. It has a large historic district with many restored 19th century homes and commerical structures. My wife and I live in the district and have restored several homes in it. When this adorable Queen Anne cottage came on the market 10 years ago, we could not resist. We have basically left the cottage as it was when built in 1906, but added modern amenities. We look forward to moving in it ourselves when we 'downsize' at some point in the future.

What makes this Cottage unique

Located on the eastern edge of Abingdon's historic district, Summers Cottage is within easy walking distance of six restaurants, the Barter Theatre, the Virginia Creeper Trail (biking and walking)and other local attractions. One can take in Abingdon's historic district and Southwest Virgina's scenic beauty while staying in a home, and enjoying a small town, but cosmopolitan, atmosphere.

Summers Cottage
We enjoyed the house so much

I’ll start by saying my husband and I love old homes so this home was perfect for our tastes in lodging. I walked around the inside of the house for at least an hour when we arrived. I felt like I was in a well preserved museum.

The location can’t be beat, right in the heart of Abingdon’s historic district. You are within walking distance of TripAdvisor’s top three rated restaurants. There is ample off street parking and a place to store your bikes.

Dr. White and his wife have made the cottage so comfortable and accommodating. They have everything you need, even Epsom salt and a soaking tub for when you finish your 34 miles on the Creeper Trail.

Trailrunner

My party of 3 visited Abingdon to run the Creeper Trail Marathon. The cottage was a perfect place to stay. We had time to attend a play at the Barter Theatre, eat at a fine dining restaurant and run the race. Very convenient, nicely furnished, clean and very cozy! I would highly recommend it!

Another wonderful stay!

This cottage has become an annual home away from home for my wife and I, and our toddler. We take an annual visit to Abingdon each October and the cottage has simply become an integral part of our stay. So charming and well decorated it welcomes you into it's embrace. We love the layout of the place and having the opportunity to stroll up to Zazzy'z for breakfast each morning. The historic section of town has such a wonderful feel to it and you get to be a part of that here in the cottage. The owner is very friendly and accomodating, and a real joy to chat with over at the coffee shop. We certainly look forward to returning next year. Highly recommended!

Peaceful Weekend

We came up to be near my cousin's wedding and enjoy our anniversary. So quiet in the cottage! The layout takes some getting used to, but the soft queen bed was totally worth it. Thank you so much!

Amazing vacation cottage in the heart of Abingdon

My wife and I just spent four nights here with our 20 month old daughter. I can't say enough nice things about the place and the owners. Beautifully furnished and decorated it rapidly became a wonderful part of our vacationing experience. It was so nice getting up in the mornings and walking down to the coffee shop for breakfast and then strolling around downtown. The porch was even nicely decorated for the Fall. The queen bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen fully equipped. It honestly felt like home.

We would certainly stay here again and hope to do so in the future.
