The home is the completely renovated and refurbished home of the Buchanan family, who left their own unique history with the house. The structure was built around 1915 to accommodate the growing family of William and Mary Buchanan. After William became owner and/or operator of the General Store, Train Station, Post Office, and Western Union office in Green Cove, his house became the supply, communication, and story-telling spot for farmers and youth throughout the area.

Mary kept her daughters and anyone else in sight busy with the daily chore of making lunch for the train passengers, and it was not uncommon for the home to serve as a makeshift hotel for stranded or snowed-in travelers. From the 1920's to the 1960's, Mary maintained this steady support for the passengers and crew of the N&W.

There are three bedrooms with queen beds, one with an additional single bed and 4 bathrooms. A large living/family room with TV/VCR offers plenty of room to spread out. The home also has a dining room, fully equipped kitchen, washer, dryer, DSL for laptop use, and central heating and air conditioning. The house sleeps 7-10 guests, and all linens are provided. Wireless Internet is also available.

Area attractions are abundant around the Buchanan Inn, beginning just 100 yards away at the Virginia Creeper Trail, an old railroad that is now a hiking, biking, running, and horseback riding trail. Also just 100 yards away, visit the Green Cove station, now a museum.

A couple of miles down the road, you can discover the beauty of the Appalachian Trail, or take the family to Mount Rogers Recreation Area. Hike down a three-mile trail on White Top Mountain, or roam over 300 acres of farmland and forest. Take advantage of nearby stocked trout lakes and streams with a Virginia fishing license. Beartree Lake also provides swimming, camping, and biking.
