Stay in the Storybook Cottage at the Holliday Castle! The Storybook Cottage is a tiny crooked fairytale house located behind our home (which is being converted into a castle!) Enjoy the view from your private back porch! Close to ski resort!

El espacio
The Storybook Cottage is a fairytale-inspired tiny crooked house. The Cottage is located directly behind our house - which is in the process of being converted into a castle. Our property houses apple trees, plum trees, cherry trees, grapevines, peach trees, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and pear trees- in addition to mass quantities of vegetables.

In the photographs posted, you'll be able to see more about the property, the placement of the Cottage in relation to the main house, and some of the animals. :-)

In the Cottage, you'll find books, board games, and general whimsy. During the spring and summer, the front porch opens up into an edible front yard- feel free to help yourself! The back porch overlooks the pond (beautiful, but not suitable for skating!). Rental of the cottage comes with a fun, Castle Fishing Permit (souvenir window sticker) which gives you complete access to the fishing supplies located in Ishmael's Tackle Shop. Ishmael's is located just below the cottage- we keep it unlocked for our guests. (However, swimming is not allowed in the pond- and when it's frozen over, no skating is allowed either.)

The Cottage is a tiny house, yet still has a lot of amenities! You have your own private kitchenette, equipped with a sink, mini-fridge, breakfast station (which includes a coffee pot, toaster oven and griddle), a microwave and a table with seats for two. This kitchenette also includes dishes (mugs, larger cups, plates, bowls and silverware) and a folding tray for reading or enjoying your meals in bed. During the warmer season, we provide a retro cooler for your use while fishing or picnicking.

You will also have your own private bathroom with an antique sink and claw foot tub (with shower). We provide you with towels, washcloths, soap, shampoo, conditioner, bubble bath and a hair dryer. (If you've forgotten anything else, just let us know- we probably have extras!)

The Cottage also has, what we call, a "mud room." It's a small room where you'll find a bench and a picnic basket (during season). During the holidays, the mudroom is decked out with a Christmas tree. The mudroom is intended as a place for you to unload, store your umbrella and shed your shoes. In the winter months, this room is also outfitted with boot warmers.

The main room houses a queen size bed, a rocking chair, a tv (w/ dvd player), and a dresser (which converts into a lighted desk.) We also provide you with an iron and ironing board. There is not a closet; however, there is a hook on the door for hanging your garment bag. The bedding is composed of two down alternative pillows, two "SpaLuxury" pillows, and two 100% cotton blankets. There are three separate heaters located throughout the cottage. There is also a window air conditioner. The main room/bedroom overlooks the pond with an entire wall of windows (don't worry- there are room-darkening curtains if you prefer to sleep in!)

If you would like to bring your child(ren), please send me a message beforehand. I am sure that a small air mattress will fit beside the queen size bed (and I will prepare it for you!), but I want to share exact dimensions with you to ensure you'll be pleased with the layout of the room. Also, if you're bringing young children, please let me know! I will ensure the cottage is stocked with some age-appropriate toys.

Regarding breakfast, your kitchen will be stocked with a standard brew of coffee, as well as tea bags. Upon your arrival, you will find a basket of fruit and zucchini bread (or something similar), as well as a couple bottles of water in your fridge. We have decided to leave this welcome/breakfast basket for you so as not to disturb your sleep the next morning. During the winter months, your kitchen is also stocked with a jar of hot cocoa mix, marshmallows and cinnamon sticks.

Servicios y zonas comunes
The entire Cottage is for your use.

Rental of the cottage includes a souvenir fishing permit. This will give you complete access to the fishing supplies in Ishmael's Tackle Shop. Ishmael's is located just below the cottage- we'll have it unlocked for you. We do require that after any photographs, you throw your fish back in the pond. (Swimming is not allowed in the pond.) (Ice skating on the pond is also not allowed.)

You're also welcome to visit our tiny antique tool museum (work in progress!), Van Winkle's. My husband is a true aficionado and will love to discuss antique tools with you.

We are currently building a pencil museum for Jill's collection. The pencil museum opens up to our Blackberry Boardwalk. It's a nice walkway through the edge of the woods near the pond. It also helps make the blackberries more accessible during season (they're typically ripe in August and you're welcome to help yourself!) Although the museum is still in a construction phase, the Blackberry Boardwalk is complete.

Also, we are located in a very popular area for ATV riders. We are 38.8 miles to the Pocahontas Trail Head (Hatfield & McCoy ATV & UTV Trails). You are welcome to use any tools in our garage for maintenance of your ATV or UTV while you are visiting.

You're free to walk throughout the property, including the gardens. Please also treat the gardens like a buffet. You're welcome to eat all of the vegetables and fruit you want while you're here. You're also welcome to help with any animal chores and gardening (especially fun for kids!) and we love to answer any questions you have.

When it is time for your check-out, you can just walk away! No cleaning or locking up needed. We like for folks to be able to completely relax and not worry about any of the details. :-)

** Update March 2019: This winter swept through with many high winds and heavy snows. Several of our trees have fallen. :-( We are in the process of cleaning up debris.

Otros aspectos destacables
We are only a little over a mile from I-77. We are less than a mile from Winterplace Ski Resort, Dollar General, Exxon and Little General Gas Stations, Ski Barn, and the Ghent Post Office. We are almost exactly halfway between Princeton, WV and Beckley, WV. We are 17 miles from Beckley and 22 miles from Princeton.

**Important to note: We are a castle-in-progress, so you will see construction materials in the common areas. Believe me, we're working as fast as we can! :-) Thank you for understanding!

I'm a mom of 6 and stay home with our two youngest boys (who are 5 and 7.) I love to garden, cook, can, sew, play the piano, read non-fiction, write, create and dream. I have authored two books, "Fairly-Popular Fairy Tales and Classic Cookery" and "The Dandelion King." I enjoy taking care of our animals (dog, cats, duck, chickens, turkey, and peacock.) My husband and I are converting our 2 bedroom, 1940s house, into a castle. (I draw and he builds.) We also design and build quirky playhouses and enjoy taking amazing road trips with our kids. Oh- and I collect pencils. :-)

Durante tu estancia
You will see us on the property. We have six children, ranging in age from four to eighteen. Don't worry- they will not bother you at all- but you will probably see them outside playing. If you need anything, I am a stay-at-home mom and am easily accessible during the day. I can frequently be found in the kitchen, our library or the greenhouse. We dearly love to show folks around our place and answer any questions you may have about our home, gardens, animals and/or the area.
