Look at a map of Virginia and pick out the spot that has no markings, that blank spot in the middle of nowhere with no roads or towns or other symbols. Yeah, that spot. That’s where Cottrell, VA is, in that blank spot on the map of Virginia, in the middle of nowhere.
That is not to say that there is nothing there, in Cottrell, VA. On the contrary, it is quite the place. Not that everyone would take a liking to it. But once you have found it, once you are there — it will grow on you, until you can’t remember being anywhere else.
A place that is hard to find becomes a place that is hard to forget. Come on down and stay a while. You won’t regret it.
