Mont Calm is a Historic Landmark on the National Register, built by Governor David Campbell in 1827. The guesthouse sits on a quiet 12 acres in the center of Abingdon. The driveway meets the Virginia Creeper Trail head and all of Downtown is a short walk!

The space

Mont Calm is truly a unique property with an abundance of History. Many characters of note have graced this property over the years including a president. Since 1827 The Town of Abingdon has grown up around it, but with wooded perimeter on 12 acres you would never know it.

Guest access

When you pull onto the property at Mont Calm the guesthouse has a gravel driveway that circles around to the house. If you face the front of the main house, the guest house is on the left.

Frank's place was exactly as pictured! I loved that the town was right outside of the property, but when you were in the house it felt like it's own world. I came here, from Florida, with my family to get away from hurricane Irma and Frank was super accommodating!! He answered all my texts and questions right away!! Will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Virginia.

Bedroom-bathroom layout a little quirky, but lots and lots of indoor space. Outside it's a hidden green oasis in the middle of town, and sitting on porch with coffee early mornings a dozen kinds of birds calling and a spotted fawn highstepping across the lawn. management friendly and flexible, great six night stay. Two minute walk to start of Creeper trail, less than 10 minute walk to Barter Theatre. Jim and Linda

Franks place is a great historic home with private grounds near town. He was a terrific host with great suggestions for dining. I stayed there with my sisters and our daughters and we had complete privacy and enjoyed sitting on home's porch. We would definitely recommend it for a wonderful experience

Frank's place was as described and pictured. We loved being right in town but feeling like we were in the country. A wonderful place to stay when you visit the historic town of Abington.

We were a group of two families, with a total of three children, who met in Abingdon to bike the Creeper Trail over a long weekend, and this house was perfect for us. The house is over 100 years old, and retains many original features, and all the charm and quirkiness that goes with it. There are two large bedrooms, one with a double bed and two singles, and one with a double bed, and one small bedroom with bunk beds. The two bathrooms are shared between the bedrooms, the half bath between the two large bedrooms, and the full bath between one large bedroom and the small bedroom. There is a little wait for the hot water to reach the shower. The kitchen can be described as "retro," and is like walking into my great-grandmother's kitchen, which I loved. There was nothing fancy about furnishings or kitchen supplies, but everything worked well and was very clean. The main rooms are large. The house sits next to a beautiful large 1827 family home that is the center of this 12 acre shaded property, and the kids had a great time playing in the yard. The train passes by at the bottom of the property, but was far enough from the house not to be too loud at night. The property location can't be beat. It is secluded but near the center of town-- we walked to restaurants, church, grocery, and bike rental, and the end of the Creeper trail is at the bottom of the driveway. The owner was very friendly and helpful and communicated well. If you are looking for a Hampton Inn, this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for something with antique charm and peaceful surroundings and a convenient location, consider this house. We loved the house and its surroundings and would definitely stay here again with the right small group.

This is a very old home with all of the quirks of an old home. It has great location and character. It was hard to find the entrance initially but Frank was very helpful with this.
