Story Cottage

This sweet cottage in the picturesque mountain town of Marshall was built c. 1850. Story Cottage is a treasure of a getaway adjacent to the Colonel Lawrence M. Allen House, built in 1849, the oldest building on Main Street. A stay in Story Cottage puts you steps from everything in downtown Marshall. Walk out your door for coffee, local art, eclectic shopping, dinner, local beer, a glass of wine on the riverfront deck at the Old Marshall Jail or a sunset stroll along the bridge. You’ll love it!
