About this cottage

This cozy cottage could not be located any closer to the tailwaters of the Jackson River. The wrap around deck and screened in porch will make you feel as if you are sitting right on top of the picturesque, cold water, trout stream. An ideal destination for the pursuit of wild Virginia trout, the river also offers countless other recreational opportunities. Easy river access is perfect for rafts, kayaks and floating in inner tubes. For those looking to stay dry, the Jackson River Scenic Trail is located directly behind the cottage and offers up to 20 miles of scenic hiking and biking access on a well maintained, crushed gravel path. The cottage is situated on approximately 4 acres of land with loads of space for other outdoor and field activities.


The cottage has 3 bedrooms featuring; 1 queen, 2 twins and a full size bed, comfortably sleeping five. There are two full baths, an outdoor shower as well as a washer & dryer. The cottage is equipped with internet & cable TV, but also bring your favorite book or DVD to unplug and relax.



We are located 14 miles from the Historic Homestead Resort, fewer than 10 miles from the Town of Covington, and less than a mile away from the Cliff View Golf Club. The Greenbrier Resort is 35 minutes away as well.

    Great trip!

    We were here for a wedding and the house was perfect for our family. The house was sparkling clean and the beds were comfy. The inside of the house is really cute and the river is gorgeous. The only down side was the healing sulfur water smell. We were aware of this before we came, but the smell was quite strong after showers due to the recent rain. However, I would definitely book again!

    Idyllic Spot on the river

    We wanted a location near the Greenbrier to do some local sightseeing. I also like to be near water, in case there's a chance to do a little fishing. This property ticked all those boxes. It is fairly remote, so you're not going to be able to "pop out" for a quick run to the grocery store....but we like it that way. Check in was quick and easy, via an electronic door lock. The property is older, but it's obvious that the interior is being continually updated. The insides are cozy, with three bedrooms and a two bathrooms. It reminded me of a lake cabin my grandparents once had. There was an issue with the internet (most likely a chewed-through cable in the crawl space) which was corrected the next day. We didn't cook, but the kitchen was well-equipped. The water supply is likely a well and, given the names of local towns (White Sulphur Springs, Green Sulphur Springs, etc) it is not surprising there is a sulphur smell to the water supply (it won't hurt you and can be good for your skin). The hosts graciously supplied a couple gallons of drinking water, but you'll want to bring (or locally supply) water for consumption. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. I did get a short opportunity to wet a line in the river. I believe recent rains had the water levels/color higher than usual so I was unable to entice any of the river denizens to bite. There is plenty to do and see within an hours radius of the cottage, plus a slew of local restaurants to try. Recommended

    Celebrating birthday with friends at Jeff & Nella Timmons Jackson River Retreat

    We booked Jeff and Nella Timmons' river front cottage to celebrate my husband's birthday and enjoy a long weekend on the Jackson river. The cottage was absolutely perfect for the 4 of us. It is nestled just outside of Covington overlooking a serene stretch of the Jackson River. Our fishermen could simply step outside of the cottage and fish. There is access to a scenic bike path that follows the Jackson river at the end of the driveway of the cottage as well. We were able to bike for miles taking in the breathtaking views along the river and enjoying the changing leaves. In the evening we watched videos from the house library and played card games. The cottage is beautiful inside, well appointed and comfortable. It is quiet and the only sound that you hear is the river, perfect for reading and sleeping or just relaxing. The beds were all very comfortable and we had plenty of room. The furniture beautiful and very comfortable. There is a sunroom as you enter the house that provides a great space to sit or enjoy your meals while you take in the view of the river. The outside living spaces are well appointed as well, lots of seating areas on the decks overlooking the river with a screened in porch large enough for your group to enjoy gathering for meals or just hanging out. We began talking about a week long Spring trip by our second day! We will definitely return to Jeff and Nella Timmons' riverfront cottage. From Bedford and Roanoke Virginia
