Open 2021 for bookings. Two-night minimum stay on account of deep cleaning issues. This cute little cottage has served as Historic Rugby visitor lodging since its completion as an historic reconstruction in 1977. It has been expanded to include a third bedroom/bath and second (downstairs) parlor. Guest Wi-Fi available next door at Visitor Centre.
Warm interior paneling recalls Rugby’s original modest grandeur, set as the village is amidst a beautiful woodland landscape. The cottage is self-catering, featuring a small upstairs kitchen complete with stove and microwave. Lunch & takeout is also available at nearby R.M. Brooks Store, except Wednesdays & Sundays: 423-628-2533.
Percy Cottage is named after a son of Sir Henry Kimber, a British baronet who was one of the biggest railway owners in the Empire. Next to Hughes, Sir Henry was the largest investor in the Rugby settlement. This cottage is located on the site of the original, which stood here until the late 1930s.
Smoking is allowed here on the rear verandah only, not inside. Pets are not permitted. Children are welcomed, and parents will find the upstairs bedrooms best for them.
