Southwest Virginia Museum Cottage

The Southwest Virginia Museum features a collection comprised of more than 20,000 pieces, about a third of which are on display at any given time. The museum chronicles the exploration and development of the region during the 1890s coal boom, as well as the pioneer period. It offers activities for kids, scout and school programs, workshops, an annual Festival of Trees program, a quilt show, a music festival and outdoor exhibits.

The museum’s Poplar Hill Cottage is the perfect mountain getaway. The quaint, garden-themed cottage is furnished with reproduction pieces. It has three bedrooms, two full baths, a kitchen and an ample living area. The cottage sleeps up to six people. The cottage has a microwave, refrigerator, oven, dishes, cooking utensils, silverware, kitchen towels and glassware. Towels and linens, including mattress covers, pillows, blankets, sheets and pillow cases, are also included. There’s no phone, but most cell phones work here. A TV and DVD player are included.
