  • The Creekside Cottage is absolutely wonderful! It is such a cute, clean, and cozy space! We spent some time at the state park right down the road! I would highly recommend!

  • When I say Ken and Jodi's cabin was clean, I mean it. Positively spotless in every regard. Cute cabin, and much bigger inside than it looks from the outside. You'll have everything you need there, including a fireplace that puts out serious heat. Deer everywhere, and the sound of the creek to lull you to sleep. Highly recommended!

  • One of the most peaceful and welcoming airbnb's I've ever stayed at. Would definitely come back again.

    Tiffany2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Ken And Jodi's house. We had everything that we needed and the house was very clean and well maintained. It was a great value. It's located right next door to Hungry Mother State Park and allowed us easy access for hiking. I would definitely recommend the house to others.

    Brian2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Ken and Jodi provided everything we needed, when we asked for earlier access to the cabin we got a quick response and the go ahead to stop by. It was really generous of them to let us do that. For anyone worried about location or distance from Marion, the house is right outside the city limits sign (maybe a 7 minute drive) and sits beautifully nearby the park. There’s one neighbor we could see, but aside from a car passing we were completely alone. The house is next to a creak and it’s so nice to listen to. Nestled in between the woods, there was just about no-where else we’d have rather stayed. We made sure to take some photos while we were there haha The only thing I could say to look out for (if you’re not used to it) is the water. It seemed to be off of a well and had a bit of an odor. Again, not a problem, but if you’re really specific about your drinking water and aren’t used to that sort of thing - be sure to get some bottled water at the store or boil the tap water. There isn’t much else to add, it was a wonderful stay and the cabin provided the get away we were after while still being in short distance to the town. Coffee was available, so was WiFi which was comforting considering there was no cell reception with Verizon. The place was very clean and the bed incredibly comfortable. Thank you!

    Owen2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The little creek behind the house was beautiful and very relaxing. I especially loved the hammock chairs on the porch! The WiFi is slow but we were not there to be connected so it didn’t bother us.

    Amber2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Ken and Jodi’s place is a great place to stay when looking for a rural retreat. I loved the fireplace and the house was charming and cozy. A nice place to unwind and be in nature.

    Allyson2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. Stay here and go see the beautiful little town of Marion or take a hike through Hungry Mother State Park

    Enjoy a relaxing stay on our alpaca farm, Long Neck Lair, overlooking the picturesque Appalachian Trail. We offer a comfortable private room in our home for business travel or vacation/getaway travel. We share opportunities for our guests to interact with and learn about our alpacas. Convenient location off of I 81 at exit 54 on Route 11 N between Marion, Virginia and Wytheville, Virginia.
    First floor room in our home has a private entrance and private bathroom. In room amenities include comfortable queen sofa bed, television, mini refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer.
    Long Neck Lair is in a rural setting, yet conveniently located to the towns of Marion, VA and Wytheville, VA. Marion is a ten minute drive away and is home to Hungry Mother State Park and Lincoln Theatre. Wytheville is a fifteen minute drive away and offers museums, entertainment, and history. Both towns have restaurants and shopping. There are two restaurants within walking distance of our farm.
  • We spent a wonderful week on Cyndie & Ken's alpaca farm. This quiet spot on the Appalachian Trail is perfect for anyone looking for a nice getaway. The towns of Marion and Rural Retreat are close by, and have lots of great local spots, in addition to plenty of hiking trails. The room and attached bathroom were very clean. Although the sofa bed did sound like a small put-off, the mattress was very comfortable. The alpacas are friendly, (no spitting!) and will come up to the fence if you approach. We hope to stay again in summertime when they get their wool sheared.

    Nathan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cynthia’s place was very cute and felt like home away from home! Cynthia was very hospitable and welcoming. It was a pleasure meeting all the alpacas and cats. I would definitely recommend staying here if you’re ever in the area.

    Danielle2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • An awesome space and very gracious hosts. The alpacas are amazing! Very comfortable atmosphere plus good local tips.

    Zach2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great host. Greeted at the door. Coffee made for us in the morning. Very sweet. Gave us great recommendations for the area. Easy to get too from highway. Great views. We will be back again. Thank you.

    Melissa2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Super neat place to stay! Loved drinking my morning coffee outside with the alpacas. We were able to book last minute (only a few hours prior) and we arrived very late. Cynthia was so kind and waited up for us. Awesome experience and highly recommend it.

    Hannah2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is now the second time I have stayed here with my husband, toddler, and dog, and we all absolutely love it. It’s so peaceful, I’m such a beautiful setting, and Cynthia and her husband are so great to talk to. Would stay a third time!

    Stephanie2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the best - alpacas, chickens, and dogs to enjoy, and a cozy place to rest! Wish we would have stayed longer!

    Jacob2019-12-08T00:00:00Z

  • So lovely, so peaceful, and the river is a beautiful place to sit and read! The hosts were responsive and helpful, and the location couldn't be better. You can buy firewood at the Discovery center in the park!

    Starlin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a special place in a beautiful park. The kitchen is awesome and very well stocked. We stayed for the Thanksgiving weekend and I was able to make my various side dishes without any problem. Big TV in the living room with Netflix, free movies, etc. Plenty to do outside and great to just sit and enjoy your surroundings.

    Francoise2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay!

    April2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Wow- I was astonished by the beauty of this place! Perfect location, clean, classy, homey and modern! I will be back at least once a year! This place is a little piece of heaven. Had an amazing stay

    Emsia2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful weekend at Hungry Mother Island! Christian and Carrie were wonderful hosts; very responsive to questions and provided great recommendations! We thoroughly enjoyed the cabin’s peaceful location and amenities. Highly recommend staying here if you find yourself in the Marion area.

    Christin2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Quite and close to all you need! Will be back for some down time! The owner's were right there to answer any questions! You want relaxation...here it is!

    Carrie2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay at a wonderful home! The house had everything we could have asked for and more - details like extra phone chargers (which was perfect as one of us left ours at home!) and even an Ingles (Grocery Store) card to use sent this place over the top! Can't wait to stay here again.

    Drew2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This home is one of a kind! Lots of fun, comfortable, and stylish touches. Surroundings were gorgeous and tons of wildlife. We must have seen 2 dozen or more deer in the one night we were there!

    Marion, VA, United States

    Small cottage secluded on 31 private acres. 3 bedrooms (2 full beds; 2 twin beds). One bath with claw tub/shower. House built in 1929 by owner's grandfather. Comfortably furnished. Linens provided. Front porch and back deck. Playhouse for children.
    Secluded, peaceful. Great place to stay for musicians interested in mountain music!
    Peaceful, quiet, safe.
  • Terrific hideaway for home base or quiet R&R. The house is amazing, full of wonders past into present. Enjoy the porch, the quiet, the breeze. Amelia is great with communication and the house is exactly (but better) as described. Great for solos or several.

    Nancy2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • For a girls road trip, this was a perfect little home away from home. A true gem in a small town with so much history, you have the entire place to yourself but are only minutes from practical amenities such as gas as food. We particularly enjoyed the privacy off the main road and saw chipmunks and deer each morning. Definitely an older place but that’s part of the charm of historic places. We would stay again if in the area!

    Elizabeth2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The best

    Rick2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second stay at Granny's. It was the perfect home base as I explored the area and looked for a place I might buy as a permanent home. Tucked up and away from the road, you really get a sense of privacy - with the exception of the pond's occasional heron, a bald eagle flying overhead, or slow moving cows in the nearby pasture. Amelia was incredibly kind and helpful during our communications and interactions. Wi-Fi is good enough I could work remotely and end the day with the occasional Netflix binge. A truly special and lovely spot. Make sure to take a walk up the hill to get even more views of the rolling hills surrounding the area.

    Caroline2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Our third visit and this time for 2 weeks.

    Cindy2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here. I think we spent most of our time sitting on the front porch taking in the view, relaxing in the hammock, and enjoying the pond. Amelia went out of her way to make our stay wonderful!

    Lisa2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and land. A+ host! Could not ask for a better, more relaxing place! If you are looking for a peacfull mountain getaway, this is the spot. Lots of great hikes, trails and swimming near by too.

    Dan2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • As a person on the hunt for her own homestead, this place was 100% the type of place I aspire to one day have. The house is set far back from the road so you can’t see it, and passing cars can’t see you. The sound of cattle in the background and the occasional croak of a frog. A great porch to watch the clouds and appreciate the landscape. A field to walk in. And really good WiFi? I couldn’t have asked for anything more...I will say I had a very hard time finding the silverware but that’s because I’m a nincompoop (it’s very obviously on the kitchen table but I spent many minutes checking and re-checking drawers because I am silly).

    Elk Creek, VA, United States

    Enjoy a relaxing vacation in our secluded mountaintop cabin getaway. Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains bordering Jefferson National Forest, this cabin is a cozy retreat with dynamite panoramic views. Spend your time sitting on the porch swing overlooking the Appalachian Mountain countryside. Glimpse the four highest peaks in Virginia, watch the hawks and eagles soar at eye level, and enjoy nature at its best.
    Inside the cabin, you will find: -A small but fully outfitted kitchen with refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, dishes, utensils, pots and pans. -Living room with flat screen TV connected to Dish Network satellite with all the network stations as well as Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, and many more. -Unfortunately, we DO NOT provide internet at this time. However cell phone reception and data usage is confirmed to work well for U.S. Cellular and Verizon plans. (We do not have any knowledge of how well other carriers will work at this time.) -One full bathroom with shower and washer/dryer located on the ground floor adjacent to the kitchen. -Heating via baseboard heat. -Upstairs there are two small bedroom spaces; one bedroom with queen bed and the other bedroom with two twin beds. There are NO DOORS separating the bedrooms from each other or the staircase. -We will provide a starter amount of toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, dish soap, hand soap, and shampoo, however for longer stays you may need to purchase additional supplies. Outside the cabin, you will find: -Front porch with swing and two rocking chairs. -Picnic shelter with picnic table and gas barbecue grill. -Forested walking path along the ridge behind the cabin. -Scenic views of the countryside. You may spot some of the local wildlife including white tailed deer, wild turkey, raccoons, possums, hawks, and eagles. Although not as commonly seen, black bears, coyote, foxes, and snakes also live in the area. Also of note: -The drive to the property is somewhat of an adventure in of itself. You will be driving through curvy rural farmland roads with livestock including cows, sheep, horses, goats, and chickens in various fields. Please be cautious while driving; it is very common for livestock and/or wildlife to be in the road! You will be on paved road for the majority of the trip, but toward the end, this changes to a one lane gravel road as you climb up the mountain. The driveway to the cabin is steep, so we recommend front wheel or 4-wheel drive vehicles. -During winter months, reservations may be subject to cancellation due to safety concerns in the event of snow or ice on the road. -There are 4 steps up to the front porch, and there are 13 somewhat narrow steps inside up to the second floor bedrooms. -There is a cable gate (essentially a cable across the driveway) with combination padlock at the driveway entrance and keypad self check-in on the front door. (We will provide the codes and detailed driving directions prior to your stay. We strongly recommend you print this information prior to driving since there may be areas of spotty cell service.)
    The town of Fries (pronounced "freeze") is about 15-20 minutes away from the cabin, along with two nearby access points for the New River Trail. The New River Trail State Park is a linear park running 57 miles including 39 miles that parallels the scenic and historic New River along what had previously been a railroad track. The trail is relatively flat and includes trestle bridges, tunnels, small waterfalls, and other beautiful woodland scenery enjoyable to hikers, bikers, and horseback riders of all ages. The nearest stores for groceries and supplies would be the Star Market (~15 minutes) and Dollar General Store (~20 minutes) in Fries, VA. There are larger grocery stores and a Super Wal-Mart located in Galax, VA (~35 minutes). We would recommend picking up supplies on your way to the cabin to save time. About 20 minutes away, across from one of the more scenic New River Trail access points, you will find "New River Outdoor Adventures." This is a local company that provides shuttle services and rentals for canoes, kayaks, tubes, biking, fishing, etc. They also sell live bait and tackle for all your fishing needs, as well as fishing and hunting licenses (either short or long term). If you call (276)237-TUBE(8823) they will customize whatever adventure you might want for your group. The city of Galax is about a 30 minute drive. Within Galax, you will find many restaurants, fast food options, antique stores, a quaint walkable downtown area, a small movie theater, bowling alley, and of course Super Wal-Mart, among other amenities. Galax also happens to be home to the largest and oldest running Old Time Bluegrass Fiddler’s Convention, which takes place annually in August since 1935. But don't worry, the entire Appalachian region is known for Bluegrass and traditional "old-timey" music which can be enjoyed year-round. The Rex Theater in Galax, VA hosts weekly live music and other special events. The Fries historic theater in Fries, VA also hosts weekly Thursday night Bluegrass "jam sessions" and other special events. The wonderful Blue Ridge Music Center can be found on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Milepost 213. This facility includes a large outdoor amphitheater with summer concert series, an award winning music museum of old-time music, and daily display of free music from local musicians. Access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is only 22 miles away, or about a 35 minute drive. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs 469 miles through Virginia and North Carolina and is one of the most visited properties of the National Park System. The Parkway offers something for everyone including scenic drives, mountain views, biking/hiking/equestrian trails, waterfalls and swimming holes, historic farmsteads and museums, cultural exhibits, and much more. Grayson Highlands State Park is a longer trek, about 45 miles (or ~70 minutes) drive away from the cabin. This park serves as gateway to the state’s highest peak, Mount Rogers, as well as the Appalachian Trail and the Grayson Highlands. The park offers hiking trails, biking trails, horse riding trails, bouldering, fishing, boating, and the chance to encounter wild ponies.
  • Photos do not do the view justice. Porch swing is incredible. Fantastic getaway. I hope to return soon!

    Chris2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you want privacy, incredible views and a cozy place to come back to after hiking, this is the perfect place. I got a surprise snow storm while up there but had no issues and enjoyed myself during a much needed retreat.

    Austin2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend this air bnb. Host kept house very clean and had detailed instructions of the location. She answered my phone call and help with all questions I had prior to stay. Very sweet lady with an incredible place to stay!

    Gary2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The view here was breathtaking. I stopped in for a few nights while I was working in a nearby town. I would love to visit this location multiple times in the future especially on vacation!

    Bronek2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful Cabin, just the right size. Everything you need for a secluded getaway. Amazing views!

    Todd2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin! It was clean, cozy, and the view was spectacular! Make sure you stop at a grocery store before getting to the cabin as it a good drive from the nearest grocery store and everything closes pretty early in the nearby town. I think it would be very convenient if there were a small welcoming basket awaiting you upon arrival. This could include things such as bottled water, coffee, and a few snacks; especially for those who are driving from far away and getting in late. There was a coffee maker and coffee creamer, but no coffee so we had to leave the next morning and drive about 45 minutes round trip to get coffee. This is obviously not a big deal and the host does say in the description to bring your own food. It is just nice when Airbnb hosts go the extra mile to make you feel welcome, which those items suggested above do and are relatively inexpensive. Other than that, the stay was great. Just make sure you come prepared!

    Jeff2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot beat the view. Amazing value and even a better host. Prompt replies, thorough instructions for check in and check out was easy. Cannot wait to be back

    Brandon2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing sunset view right in front of the cabin which is located on top of the mountains. It's incredible how nice the landscape looks like all around. Very easy to arrive, my gps took me right at the cabin, no issues at all in finding the location. Very easy check in. Very clean space inside/outside. We had signal on our phones all the time. Tv is full of channels. My favorite thing to do was to stay on the porch and admire the surroundings. Very quiet place to be if you are looking to relax far away from everything. Nobody bothered us during our staying. I highly recommend it and definitely I will go back soon. Thank you Loren for your quick and helpful answers!

    Brand new cabin in a beautiful valley nestled in the Southwest VA mountains. Come relax in peace and quiet. The cabin is located in a beautiful spot on our working family farm facing the north side of Walker Mountain.
    Take a break from life. Get away. Come relax in solitude or with your spouse. Reconnect with nature. Breathe in that fresh air. Observe wildlife and get a taste of life on the farm.
    We are about a mile off of Hwy 16 (Back of the Dragon). About 10 miles from Hungry Mother State Park (hiking, fishing, beach, zip lining...). We’re 25 minutes from Marion where there is an adorable Main Street with shops and eateries. We are about 45 minutes from Abingdon (Barter Theatre, antique shopping, dining...).
  • The stay was absolutely perfect! If you want a quiet, secluded, comfortable stay this is the place for you! The fresh steaks are also a must, the kitchen has everything you need! Will be back for sure!

    Jonathan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cabin in a beautiful location. Loved the hospitality. Definitely want to stay again

    Colleen2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I have used Air BnB for several years now. This was, by far, the best hospitality we have experienced. The cabin was perfect, the bed was amazingly comfortable, the kitchen had everything you need, and Amy was the best host we have ever had. We had a personal issue that delayed us and she was very understanding as well as helpful. The fresh meats and eggs are well worth it. It was the perfect anniversary weekend for us.

    Shelley2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amy and Will have the perfect getaway to a quite place with an amazing view. The cabin is beautiful inside and out! The hot tub was a great relaxation to have while soaking up the view of the mountains. Would recommend to everyone! We will for sure be back!

    Reinee2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect getaway. The cabin had everything we needed and more for a relaxing stay. I HIGHLY recommend booking if you like what you see because it's even better in person. We traveled from Baltimore and will be back!

    Jessica2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a treat! We just got back from our time at Amy and Will's cabin and we want to drive right back. Such a relaxing and peaceful time to spend with each other for New Year. The hot tub was an added plus! The nearest town is on the other side of a mountain...so if you aren't fans of driving on small winding roads, grab your groceries before you get there and plan to stay there! We will definitely be back.

    Taylor2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the Rich Valley Cabin! All the little things that we didn't think about were there (ex. Grilling supplies, kitchen gagets). I highly recommend purchasing meat as well. The grass fed steaks were the best I have ever tasted! Amy was quick to respond to questions. There was no cell service or wifi at this cabin, so make sure you are willing to be off the grid durning your stay. The perfect retreat! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

    Clara2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful location! Perfectly placed cabin was extremely clean and thoughtfully put together for guests. We’ll be back! Thanks Amy!

  • I had a great stay at Lee's cabin. The cabin is surrounded by nature and has trails in the back of the house which is a big plus. I definitely recommend this place for short and long stays. Lee is a great host, he responds immediately if you have any problems.

    Iñaki2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable accommodations in two twin beds. Well equipped cabin for basics. Just stop at grocery store for provisions and you can spend some quality time in the woods

    John. (Bob)2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Kozy Cabin does not disappoint! It is the perfect, quaint getaway for anyone who needs to just slow down for a bit. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the walking and hiking trails, as well as the gated deck for our puppy. We will absolutely be returning.

    Emily2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic get away with hiking trails, a beautiful pond and outdoor fire place. Lee is kind and very attentive

    Lory2019-09-17T00:00:00Z

    Amber2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Our hosts were incredibly attentive and met us as soon as we arrived and gave us a tour of the space. The space was very well maintained and private. The property itself is worth the trip the hiking trails and amazing views. We absolutely loved our stay and can’t wait to return!

  • This was a real treat! Wonderful renovated farm house, very stylish with comfortable beds and bathroom. The room is upstairs with 2 single beds- extremely comfortable and bathroom across from the beds. Super friendly, accommodating hosts. They gave us great tips on things, allowed us to sleep in beyond check-out time as there were no arriving guests and let us feed the alpacas. Great value for the price- we were delighted.

  • Cynthia and her husband were very friendly and accommodating. The room was very cute and clean. We loved visiting with the alpacas too!

    Shelby2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in a sweet little room. The twin beds were very comfortable, and everyone was very kind to my dog, who traveled with us. A great recovery spot after some cold snowy days on the AT!

    Olie2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Long Neck Lair is a wonderful Farm, perfect place to escape the city and reconnect with your Self. The Alpacas are so cool, I miss the friendliest, Winny and Sirius! Cynthia+Ken could not have been kinder or more patient (I was tired, cold and sniffley) Cannot wait to return... in the Springtime! Many thanks!

    Denise2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our room was very clean and everything was in good repair. The house is a cross of stylish antique shop and museum. I would recommend to anyone. Cynthia was nice enough to bring us to meet and feed the alpacas, even though we were leaving early that day.

    Jeff2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely place Cynthia has! It was so cozy and warm. I arrived later in the evening after a full day of hiking and was treated to a wonderful shower and comfy bed. In the morning I got to visit with the chickens and alpacas and take in the autumn beauty on the back patio. A lovely stay!

    Kindra2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • The "Lair" is just a couple of minutes from the interstate, yet the back patio and hot tub look out over unspoiled mountain vistas. Cynthia and Norman are in the midst of dozens of projects, including the creation of a bunkhouse for AT hikers, so their creative chaos is all around, but our bedroom and bath were serene and peaceful. We had the use of a fridge and freezer, but cooking would have been awkward. The stairway to our room was long and steep, however I believe that there are first floor rooms available. We felt welcome and comfortable and certainly would stay there again.

  • Jennifer’s place was very nice and clean. We arrived in the evening and had to leave early in the morning, but it’s a great setup with the location and animals.

    Ben2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location, we enjoyed visiting the mountains and our stay was wonderful.

    Titus2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

    Yiwen2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place! Amenities were great, bed was comfy, all the animals are super friendly. Family is even better, I highly recommend the trail ride!

    Amanda2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Jennifer's home is a great place to stay! It's convenient to get to several nearby state parks and even though it's located in a rural area, all the amenities you could want and some great restaurants are just a few minutes away. She was easy to communicate with and genuinely wanted to make sure I had a great stay in her home. If you're looking for a retreat, this home will provide a very relaxing place to stay in a beautiful area!

    Michael2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Very close to Grayson Highlands Park where we spent the day hiking. Loved petting the horses, dogs, and pig on Jennifer's lovely property. Great views, super comfy seating, and sparkling clean. A great stay!

    Bridgette2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, comfortable and clean space! We had a little trouble finding it due to a GPS glitch but it was worth it! Gorgeous views of the hills in the morning. They left us carrots to feed their horses and it was the first thing we did when we arrived... Aside from plopping in the dirt to pet their two wonderful dogs :)

    Quiet private location in the woods with private path to the river
    Like a time machine to the 1930's. All wood house and furniture. Old style plumbing. New electric. Gas stove for cooking Wood stove for heat (Electric and gas backup ) The cabin was built in 1920. Almost a century old. It was renovated in 1995 after Purchased by current owner. Please : No smoking inside the cabin. The driveway is very passable but some with low vehicle clearance have expressed I should give a heads up. If you’re not sure, you can walk down the driveway first. Plenty of Spare parking on the main raid which is part of the 70 acre parcel in which the cabin is situated. The river trail is over 50 miles long and no motorized traffic is allowed
    No neighbors to bother you. Every Thursday night there is a free bluegrass performance at the local recreation center in Fries. Local talent. 7 to 9 pm
  • We decided to cap off a backpacking trip in Grayson Highlands by extending our trip at this cabin. If you are looking for quiet and secluded time in nature, this cabin certainly delivers. I enjoyed sitting on the porch and reading, building fires in the wood stove, and hiking down to and along The New River. The cabin was well decorated, and the kitchen had enough equipment that we were able to cook all the food we needed. Unfortunately, the shower was not working while we were there, but there was plenty of hot water for a more indulgent bath. James was very responsive to our messages and made sure that we were well accommodated. He even shared some of his chickens' eggs with us, which we enjoyed for breakfast. We would happily return again in the future if we find ourselves in the area again.

    Michael2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t have loved this place more, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I was there.

    Hannah2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place to rest and rewind. The hike to the river is awesome and I left feeling relaxed and uplifted. The property is gorgeous and the cabin has everything you need. It was a little cold the first week of March, but the host had a ton of firewood and I kept the wood burning stove going all week. I will definitely return next time I need an escape.

    Kelli2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a wintry girls weekend in this charming little cabin and we made memories we’ll cherish forever. Note that if you’re visiting in the winter it is quite cold - space heaters & the wood burning stove helped but it was still quite chilly. Also - we did feel a bit vulnerable in the evening. It’s a very remote location, and there’s not much in terms of security. But all in all it was the location of our dreams!

    Megan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • James’ cabin is absolute perfection. He has managed to create the ideal blend of simple, primitive cabin living with a dash of modern convenience. I can’t wait to return! Secluded, peaceful, and comfortable. Thank you for creating a lovely experience, James!

    Steve2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is a great find. It is a 1920 cabin overflowing with character. The creek is right beside the cabin so you can hear the water. It is spacious, very clean and had all the amenities we needed. We enjoyed the wood stove and there are additional heaters that kept us toasty. It was exactly as described. Great location, character, beautiful views and so peaceful. Great lighting with ample overhead lighting and lamps, extra blanket, plenty of bath towels, etc. A huge assortment of books for reading. There is a spice rack with some spices and a lovely cupboard with sugar, creamer, etc. Kitchen accessories were perfect - toaster, coffee maker, pots, pans, dishes, etc. There is a TV in the living room with ample seating. Front & back porch views are amazing! The path to the river is right beside the cabin. There is also a fire pit near the back porch. A great cabin for relaxing and enjoying nature. No phone service for our cell provider which we loved! James was an excellent host. So happy to find this gem. We’ll return for sure!

  • I absolutely loved the evening spent in this adorable home. If you are a lover of horses, you will be in awe of the collection of equine art and pieces used in this house. I loved the beautiful old hardwood floors, the house was super clean and the bed I slept in was very comfy. You can tell there is a lot of pride taken to make sure you are comfortable here, and I will definitely be back if in the area again.

And they even left some snacks for us - super thoughtful! And they were very accommodating as far as check-in and check-out. We will definitely be returning. :)

    Grace2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was completely charming while also having the modern conveniences of a huge TV and good wifi. The kitchen was great and we cooked a lot. Deer came by regularly and the back "yard" is just wonderful. There was a fully stocked and ready fire pit waiting for us when we arrived, which we made good use of.

    Micah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t let the fact that it’s a cabin fool you—it is very modern with literally everything you could want or need. Hands down the best AirB&B experience thus far

    Everett2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay in Marion. Weldon and Brenda were very welcoming and gave us a tour when we checked in. The place was very clean and close to many hiking trails. We enjoyed seeing the raccoons and deer so close to the property. Thank you Weldon and Brenda!

    Artisan home surrounded by 15 acres with a 150ft waterfall a few feet off the front deck. If you are looking for WI FI and TV this is NOT your vacation. Looking for down time? Looking for inspiration? Looking to reconnect with nature and disconnect from the speed of the world this IS the place for you.
    Craftsman build. Custom interior. Unique experience lying in bed looking at the Falls. It feels like you are anywhere in the world but Independence Va.
    Beautiful rolling hills with pasture and cows surround you as you drive up.
  • Second stay at the falls house. A spa-like retreat that must be experienced. Cozy, amazing accommodations. Caroline is a gracious host & very easy to communicate with!

    Christina2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly paradise! The waterfall in the back is absolutely stunning & an amazing sight to look at. We literally sat in the chair looking out at the waterfall for hours and the sound of it is so relaxing! Definitely secluded, no cell service & no tv but it was absolutely perfect for us. Best weekend we have ever had and the most relaxing!! We will most definitely go back and suggest everyone to check this place out!

    Jessica2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This space is pure magic. The quiet, the beauty of the waterfall, the deer that visit the yard are so special. Caroline has decorated the home in such a stylish but comfortable way. This is a great place for a romantic get away or even a solo trip for someone wanting peaceful solitude. We can't say enough good things about it. There are restaurants near by but we cooked simple meals in the kitchen and never left.

    Cristin2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was the most wonderful way to get away in the mountains for a few days. The falls were amazing and the cabin had everything needed to rest and relax. We will definitely be returning.

  • Wish I didn’t have to leave lol pictures didn’t do the views any justice something that can only be mentally captured. But highly suggest too try & capture it all. I love this secret hiding spot very peaceful will definitely be returning in the spring. Caught some snow so I couldn’t really enjoy the outdoors like I wanted too but the house was more than enough fun wasn’t bored not once even without any service. - p.s.: caught pretty good service in Wytheville about 40mins away from the home.

    Amber2019-11-13T00:00:00Z

    Camping on the New River about a 5 minute walk to the New River Trail and State Park Fire pit Beautiful view of river Road is smooth but: NEED 4 wheel drive for campsite Two wheel drive for camping shelter Shelter has power, light and fridge. Cold water from hose Or can walk to site Rent to only one group at a time for privacy
    It’s at the end of Whipporwill Ridge in a forested area next to the river. Go to the end of Whipporwill Ridge , Fries, Va and someone will meet you there to show you around
  • James' place was wonderful. We booked it super last minute and got there just before dark, and he met us at the parking space and showed us to the cabin. There was an outlet with a bright light, a mini-fridge thoughfully stocked with waterbottles, a hose and faucet nearby, an outhouse, a shower. a charcoal grill, a firepit, and some pre-cut firewood! Very thoughful. We didn't actually stay in the campsight, since our car didn't have 4 wheel drive, but the shelter space was wonderful. We just pitched out tent in the shelter, which worked out well! (note: there are two possible campsights--up by the shelter/fridge area and then about a 5-min downhill walk to the actual campsight). We loved it and hope to be back someday!

    Jenna2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Michelle2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at the 4wd accessible location on their property. Clean campsite with a small fireplace. Short walk down the hill from there takes you to a walking path along the river.

    Andrew2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Glamping at its finest. Amazing view, adorable structure, private and comfy. (Even the outhouse is kinda cute.) Took the dogs down the path to the river. Spotted deer in the forest, watched fog creep up the valley, dive-bombed by so many ladybugs we ran out of wishes. Will be back next autumn to be sure!

    Jessie2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is perfect for anyone wanting complete privacy and beautiful views. The outdoor shower was so cute and fully functional. The mini fridge stocked with water was a nice touch. Would recommend to any of my friends! Also it’s only an hour away from Grayson Hylands Park!

    Laci2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place was very neat, off the beaten path a little but the drive to get there is beautiful. The view of the water and nice touches like a mini-fridge and fire pit made our stay even more enjoyable. Will definitely be returning sometime soon.

  • Where do I even start!! We had an amazing weekend at the camping shelter at James place! With amazing views, a beautiful trail that leads down to the river and a night sky full of millions of stars it was the perfect get away for us!! I highly recommend this little piece of paradise that’s tucked away in the country to anyone looking for a beautiful spot to unwind and enjoy nature! The only down fall that I can think of, is that we didn’t book it for longer!! We will absolutely be back for another visit very soon!!

    Cindy2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful experience! We met James at the top of the road where we followed his vehicle down a dirt road surrounded by wildflowers and stopped at the site with the wood structure. It had everything we needed and more. A pitched tent with a padded sleeping surface, Electricity, a (stocked!) mini fridge, matches, outhouse, outdoor shower, and grill. The structure overlooks the river and it’s literally picture perfect. We only stayed one night, but would have definitely stayed more. Definitely a luxury camping experience...great for inexperienced campers!

    You'll find a quaint and comfortable cabin that sleeps two just footsteps from the 57-mile New River Trail. A covered picnic shelter, water spigot, table, and fire ring make this the perfect destination for bicyclists and hikers. A full, private bathroom is located in the main building a few steps away. All linens provided. In this valley, you are off the grid, so relax and enjoy your stay along this designated National Recreational Trail.
    Just nine miles off I 81 & 77 you'll have immediate access to the New River Trail where gorgeous mountain scenery wraps your soul in relaxation and refreshment. It is truly a haven for the mind, body and spirit. Because this quaint cabin is tucked between several mountains and down in the river valley, the property is off the grid. I encourage you to embrace that fact and unplug. Your quiet and serene adventure is only a few footsteps away.
    Some of Virginia's most beautiful mountain scenery can be found in Wythe County, Virginia. The abundance of outdoor recreation and the low cost of living and recreating is what attracts folks to this area of the state.

    Debra2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying at James’s place. The house was very clean, beds were comfortable and he left us farm fresh eggs and water. The eggs were delicious!! The house is not far from town and it is very close (less than 1/4 mile) to the Double AA market where you can get an amazing breakfast for a reasonable price. The store also offers fresh meat and produce. We rode 46 miles on the New River Trail, if you are a hiker, biker or like to ride horses, this is the trail for you! We were very happy staying at this home. I highly recommend it.

    Sharon2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time staying at James’s place! It was secluded but yet not far from the town of Fries. The house was so clean!! James also left us fresh eggs and water in the fridge! The eggs were delicious!! We enjoyed biking the New River Trail and we enjoyed all the nice people that we met. James was very quick to answer any questions that we had and was an awesome host! I highly recommend staying at any of James’s rentals!

    Sharon2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Nice spot to use as an anchor whilst exploring the area - the New River is very nearby. The complementary eggs were a lovely touch - such rich golden yolks! WiFi was good and I even got cell service (a rarity in much of Grayson County). Wished I had an apple or carrot for the neighboring horses!

    This quaint, warm cabin in scenic, serene Elk Creek is located on the mountain up a gravel road on 5 wooded acres. The area is loaded with wild turkey and deer, and the occasional bear. This is the perfect getaway for nature lovers, hikers, hunters, fishers, bluegrass music enthusiasts, or anyone simply looking to disconnect from technology and the busyness of life. Roast marshmallows in the fire pit, grill out on our charcoal grill, rock on the front porch, or fish just 1 mile from the cabin.
    This cabin is very special to my family. It was built by my papa and several others in our family. We have shared many fond memories here and hope you will too. Our cabin is a rustic getaway for those seeking adventure, privacy, and peace. There is little to no cell reception, unless in town. We also do not have wifi or cable. This is a place to connect with loved ones instead of technology. We do have a tv and a dvd collection, and games! We recently had tree work done, a new roof installed, new back steps, and had some wood rot repaired. Exterior paint is coming soon!
    The cabin is located up a winding gravel mountain road full of beautiful scenery near the historic site where Caty Sage was said to have been kidnapped. The road is bumpy, but doesn't require 4 wheel drive. You DO need 4 wheel drive if visiting while snow is on the ground. Our cabin is a rustic getaway for those seeking adventure, privacy, and peace.
  • Everything was exactly as stated in all the details about the cabin. My family and I were very happy with our stay. I recommend this cabin if you are seriously looking for relaxation, peace and quiet!

    Todd2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful cabin to relax and enjoy some relaxing time. The cabin had 2 full bedrooms, one bath and space for 6 to stay. The property is large, and the house includes a front and back (screened in) porch. There is also a fire pit behind the house. The kitchen has full appliances to cook if you choose to do so. The house has a TV with a DVD player and nothing more. It’s what you should do on a nice trip such as this: disconnect, relax, and have no use for WiFi of cell service. Communication was great, quick, and thorough. Would highly recommend to anybody looking for a relaxing weekend. Hikes and outdoor walks are available in driving distance.

    Craig2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was an excellent place to stay and we look forward to staying again ASAP.

    Bruce2019-11-02T00:00:00Z

    Hannah2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to visit for the weekend. Very relaxing, calm and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and the cabin was very clean. Kayla made our rental process and stay very simple and enjoyable.

    Nick2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Secluded cabin in the beautiful mountains! We saw deer, lovely sunsets, and wild turkeys! We loved grilling out and then relaxing by the campfire. Kayla provides many brochures of local attractions and this was so helpful for us to enjoy our impromptu “hurrication” as we fled from Hurricane Dorian. We would definitely recommend this cabin to those looking for peace and quiet and/or quality time with loved ones.

    Felicia2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is absolutely amazing. It’s peaceful and serene with a screened porch and a fire pit. The stars are gorgeous without city lights. It had everything we needed.

    Relax on the New River in the renovated hayloft of a horse barn -- perfect for a peaceful country getaway. Located at the end of a winding rural road, this apartment is on a working cattle farm with 3/4 mile frontage along the New River. Hike, fish, canoe, or just watch the hawks, deer, geese, and turkey.
    As mentioned, our "River View Getaway" apartment is actually a renovated hayloft above an old horse barn. Although there are no horses currently in residence, the property is located on a 94 acre working cattle farm. (No animals will be stored in the barn during your stay, but you may see cattle in the fenced off paddocks.) Enjoy sitting on the rocking chair porch overlooking the fields and New River. You may spot some of the local wildlife including white tailed deer, canadian geese, or wild turkey. Although not commonly seen, black bears, coyote, and foxes may also live in the area. Inside the barn loft apartment, you will find all the comforts of home including an open living area with leather sofa (which pulls out to queen sized bed), dining area, and kitchen. The full sized bathroom is off the hallway. The rear of the apartment contains a large bedroom with skylight and King sized bed. All linens are of course laundered between each stay including the Duvet covers. (So no dirty bedspreads or blankets!) We will provide toilet paper, papertowels, trash bags, dishsoap, and travel-sized bathroom toiletries, however for long stays you will be responsible for additional supplies. There are large flat screen televisions in both the living room and bedroom. We provide Dish Network satellite TV with all the network stations as well as HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, and many more. High speed gaming/streaming internet is unfortunately NOT available in this area. However we provide a Verizon Hotspot for internet access so you can check your email and research information. It should be noted that this property is located at the end of a long winding country road, which becomes a one lane gravel road near the end. There are 19 steps up to the front door. A number code on the front door allows for self check-in.
    The town of Fries (pronounced "freeze") is about 10 minutes away, along with two nearby access points for the New River Trail. The New River Trail State Park is a linear park running 57 miles including 39 miles that parallels the scenic and historic New River along what had previously been a railroad track. The trail is relatively flat and includes trestle bridges, tunnels, small waterfalls, and other beautiful woodland scenery enjoyable to hikers, bikers, and horseback riders of all ages. About 12 minutes away, across from one of the more scenic New River Trail access points, you will find "New River Outdoor Adventures." This is a local company that provides shuttle services and rentals for canoes, kayaks, tubes, biking, fishing, etc. They also sell live bait and tackle for all your fishing needs, as well as fishing and hunting licenses (either short or long term). If you call (276)237-TUBE(8823) they will customize whatever adventure you might want for your group, including pick up at the farm, (which is known locally as the Delp's Beach farm.) The city of Galax is about a 15-20 minute drive. Within Galax, you can find many restaurants, antique stores, a quaint walkable downtown area, a small movie theater, and of course Super Wal-Mart, among other amenities. Galax also happens to be home to the largest and oldest running Old Time Bluegrass Fiddler’s Convention, which takes place annually in August since 1935. But don't worry, the entire Appalachian region is known for Bluegrass and traditional "old-timey" music which can be enjoyed year-round. The Rex Theater in Galax hosts weekly live music and other special events. The Fries theater in Fries also hosts live music events. The wonderful Blue Ridge Music Center can be found on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Milepost 213. This facility includes a large outdoor amphitheater with summer concert series, an award winning music museum of old-time music, and DAILY display of free music from local musicians. Access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is only 14 miles away, or about a 25 minute drive. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs 469 miles through Virginia and North Carolina and is one of the most visited properties of the National Park System. The Parkway offers something for everyone including scenic drives, mountain views, biking/hiking/equestrian trails, waterfalls and swimming holes, historic farmsteads and museums, cultural exhibits, and much more.
  • Our stay at the barn was great. It was nicer than we expected. Very private. We didn’t see one person while we were there, which we loved😊 We were giving detailed directions and found it very easily in the dark which is good given its remote location. Would definitely go again!

    Steven2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing, just what we needed.

    Doug2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Our recent stay at Joan's River View Getaway was our first trip using Airbnb. Joan is a fantastic host and made our first stay a truly effortless experience. Her place is amazing and she made the whole process a delight. Check-in/out was super easy. Joan provided us with very clear and concise driving directions, as well as great directions for entering/exiting the property. This little gem of a place is perfect if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing, peaceful, opportunity to re-charge your batteries. Joan's place is very clean, neat, and tidy. The property is nicely secluded, yet you're only minutes from town should you need supplies, or if you're looking for activities. My husband and I enjoyed watching the little bit of snow that fell, the birds roosting in the tree near the porch, and the beautiful stars on the clear nights. The New River is just a very small walk away for the house so it would be great for those warmer months of the year! All-in-all we were extremely pleased with River View Getaway and we hope to stay again in the future.

    Angela2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Joan was quick to respond to our reservation and a needed change of date. The place was perfect for a child-free getaway, though kids might enjoy all the space to play outdoors. Loved walking along the river and in the field. Bed and pillows were super-comfortable. A fun selection of family games was provided as well. We'd love to return!

    Donna2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay. As secluded and peaceful as it gets! The place was very clean and the hosts were very friendly and provided great communication. Would definitely stay here again.

    Rachel2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Can’t recommend highly enough. You’d be hard pressed to find a more spectacular location and the apartment is beautiful/extremely clean. It was hard saying goodbye to this unique spot.

Stop at the grocery store on your way in from town, and then you will have no need to leave for entertainment between your arrival and the end of your stay. We look forward to your visit...
  • Charles is one of the nicest people you’ll have the pleasure of meeting. Keyless entry to the cabin made self-check in a breeze. The cabin has one and a half baths with a full kitchen. Wrap around porch makes sunrises and sunsets picture perfect. Would stay again.

    Rendi2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I, along with our two small dogs, were in town for a family reunion. We were so thankful to have a clean, spacious, and comfortable place to stay and in a picturesque location. We enjoyed walking around the property and seeing the animals. Definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a home away from home in Wytheville!

    Alicia2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful little get away cabin. Very quiet and secluded. Well equipped and clean. You can sit on the porch and enjoy the cows, geese, horses and Alpaca's. Friendly hosts.

    Matthew2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is an unexpected gem of a getaway location in Wytheville! The cabin was stocked with everything that you need to be comfortable during your stay, including a full kitchen that could accommodate meal prepping for our family reunion. During our stay, we comfortably accommodated 4 adults in 3 beds (used an air mattress that we brought with us, rather than the pull out). The cabin is set on a beautiful, active farm with great views of the rolling foothills of Southern VA. The wrap-around deck overlooks the 2 ponds on the property, as well as your closest neighbors - the alpacas, horses, cows, and sheep who also call the farm home. We really enjoyed sitting out on the porch for breakfast or going to watch the active fire flies at night. The cabin is about 5 minutes outside of town, so it is an easy trip to go out to eat or to buy groceries. Charles was a kind, excellent host who happily accommodated our late check-in (~9:00 pm), changes in our travel schedule, and made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay.

  • The cabin is beautiful with an amazing view of the mountainside. There was plenty of space for my family of 4 and a infant. The pasture surrounding the cabin made the seclusion even better. It had every thing needed for a great vacation, including gas grill.

    Monica2018-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! The view and the cabin were gorgeous! The second picture in the listing isn't just a picture of the general area, it's the view off the porch! We really enjoyed getting away from everything for a weekend. 10/10 would book again.

    Oliver2018-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking to “get away from it all”, look no further. Nestled on the side of a mountain with views that pictures can’t do justice. Robert was a great host with quick communications. The drive is 6/10s of a mile long and once your at the house you feel miles away from anyone. We were on motorcycles for this trip and were able to get to the house with no trouble even though it had been raining that morning. Easy access to several motorcycle routes associated with the Claw of the Dragon. We rode for 4 days and didn’t come close to riding half of the routes. Our favorite activity was sitting on the porch in the early mornings and late evenings and watching the deer (including a 10 point) come into the meadow to eat apples that had fallen from the many ancient apple trees.

  • The River Peek Cottage was perfect for our long weekend of exploring the New River Trail. The cottage had everything we needed and was so comfortable! The weather was a little bit dismal -- cold and rainy -- but it was so lovely to finish the day in this warm and cozy cottage. Our only regret is that we weren't there in warmer weather so that we could have enjoyed the cute yard. We'll be back!

    Christine2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • River Peek cottage is charming, comfortable and sparkling clean. We enjoyed the easy access to the New River Trail for two days of bike riding. Check in was easy and communication with Steve was easy. Definitely on our "Return List".

    My place is close to family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood, the comfy beds, the outdoors space. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
    There are two bedrooms...One has a queen bed and the other has two twin beds...There is one bathroom with a tub and shower combo, a well equipped kitchen and a living room...There is a front porch with rockers overlooking the river.
    This home is located in the historic mill town of Fries, VA which was established in 1902. The beautiful New River flows in front of the house and "The New River Trail" which begins in Fries and continues for over fifty miles to Pulaski, VA is also in front of the house. It is a "Rails to Trails" project for bikers, hikers and horses. There is very little incline or decent and you will find trestles, tunnels, beautiful flowers, shoals and lots of cool shade in mostly secluded deep woodlands. The fishing is great along with canoeing, tubing and kayaking. BlueGrass Music is plentiful with the locals jamming in town on Thursday evenings at 6PM. The Galax Fiddlers Convention and The Fries Fiddlers Convention are held the second and third weeks in August..The Blue Ridge Parkway and the Blue Ridge Music Center are 14 and 15 miles away...For those of you with wanderlust there are lots of narrow dirt and paved roads with pastures, mountains, creeks and valleys to explore...
  • Friendly host, very clean and excellent location. It was exactly how it was described. We will def be back again.

    Toni2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view of the New River from the porch of a quaint old home. The accommodations and amenities are the best that I have experienced in a rental home. I highly recommend this place and I plan to return as soon as possible.

    Delbert2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Rachel have a beautiful rental home with all the fixings and one of the best views Fries has to offer. We spent two nights there, but could have stayed much longer. Great for all family sizes and needs, a great deal, and a very charming and warm folks. Highly recommended!!

    Bradford2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • I will avoid redundancy. Everyone's accolades are valid. We will return. Owners are stellar.

    Steven2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • The place had an amazing view of the river since it was right across the street. Location was excellent, the house was very nice and clean, and Rachel was an excellent host, checking in to ensure everything was okay. Highly recommend this place to others.

    Ryan2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • You will be treated to a clean, well equipped small home with a front porch that offers the most relaxing, beautiful view of the New River you have ever seen.

    Andy2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here. A very comfortable and beautiful home. We loved the extra touches like a basket with crackers and popcorn. The view of the New River from the front porch is amazing. If you are there on a Thursday night, The Jam Fest in Fries is a must. The owner replied to our questions immediately and the welcome phone call to see if we had everything was a pleasant surprise!! We’ll definitely be back!

    Cheryl2019-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This time last year my boyfriend and I had the blessing to find Rachel's place for a romantic relaxing getaway. We have been fortunate enough to be able to rent it again this year. We love the house and all it has to offer. As you walk up the steps to the house the wide porch over views the ENORMOUS river. If you ever want to have a glass of wine or coffee and need a view, there's your spot! It's loud and roaring but so beautiful especially with all the natural watershed wildlife around it's an amazing location. We noticed down the hill before the river they have just built a smaller unique style putt putt course next to the playground. Which is just steps away down the hill from the street the house is on. Our weather was rainy so we didn't get much of a closer look. But anyways, as soon as you walk in through the door you know the home is clean by the way everything smells fresh and there's not a speck of dust/dirt in sight. We felt right at home there especially with the touches of bagged popcorn and some snacks they left for us there. The bathroom was extremely clean and all of our towels felt clean and fluffy. We did enjoy the heating option in the bathroom, it's a nice touch when if you ever get a little chilly coming out of the shower. For any ladies reading this, I really love the second bedroom to get ready in, Rachel's created a space for a vanity with a large mirror and a vanity with a cushioned bench. There's also plugs on either side of the vanity so it's perfect if you need several hair tools heating. But be careful to not damage the antique wood on the vanity! Moving on to the Master Bedroom, the bed is extremely comfortable queen with soft, clean, white sheets and pillow cases. They also have an amazon echo in there for your personal use all you have to do is just plug it in! The bed is also facing the main front windows, which has privacy but also allows you to open your blinds up and the curtains to have the gorgeous river view. Saturday night, we had a candle lit dinner on the updated (game table) they show in the pictures. This is a new table, it's even better! All wood and has an extra pop up side to expand if you have more than just two people! They also have cards and some games if you want to play or books to read and also has a large clear perfect picture tv and great channel lineup!! We were able to explore the area a little bit more. We recommend the Little Creek Brewery Restaurant, the Galax Smokehouse (Really laid back environment check yelp), if you're looking for more upgraded than the Galax Smoke house try the Twisted Fork. If you're looking for pizza, pasta and wings kinda place try Ciro's pizza by the walmart which is about 10-15 mins away. For some things to do, we went downtown Galax and looked at some of their local shops and antique stores. If you have kids I saw they have some museums and a local theater. I think in summer and spring time this place is great to visit too because you also will have the river adventures! Overall, the beautiful area is slower pace than the hustle and bustle of a city center, but use yelp and google to help find things to do around the area beside what I recommended. But the house is perfect in every way for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rachel's place. She has created the perfect, home away from home setting. Love and blessings to Rachel and her family, we can't wait to visit in the spring!!! :)

    This is the place to get away from it all and enjoy the outdoors. One mile from 57-mile long New River Trail for kayaking, fishing, hiking, biking, riding. Kayaks, horses and bikes can be rented at the New River State Park. We are half an hour from the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. Our cabin is on 50 acres of pastures (either with cows, hay or horses and two small donkeys) and runs along Cripple Creek. We are at the end of a quiet gravel road. This room has its own entrance, patio and bath.
  • Best place to stay for hospitality amenities and beautiful surroundings very peaceful.

Lovely accommodations, stress free arrival/departure, lots of room to roam and enjoy the property - you have to try the double-reclining swing after a long day! And Valerie is wonderful to work with - great directions to local spots and to the house. The room has a mini-fridge and a small microwave, plus coffee pot - perfect!

  • Valerie's place is a hidden gem. It is a recently built log cabin and the large space is downstairs in a daylight basement with a private entrance, small private bath, table, small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. There is baseboard heat and a ceiling fan. She has a dehumidifier and the space still smells new, not damp or musty. It looks out over a beautiful field on her large property where I saw deer every day, even two bucks cutting up as they passed through. A nice walk across the pasture to her private deck at Cripple Creek. I spent some time there everyday. You pass right by the New River park with walking and riding trails and kayaking opportunities, but the property is off the beaten path and the gravel drive to her place opens up to beautiful pastures and the large, private space of her farm. There is not a crowd of people camping around it or houses close by. Great private place to relax and 'power down'. The town of Floyd is about an hour away and worth the trip for music and art lovers. I met friendly and helpful people everywhere I went and felt like I was in a safe place. Valerie provided brochures for lots of activities and has great with suggestions. Explored the property in her mini jeep. Wish I had more time to spend there. I think the bed is on the firm side, but most people would probably say mine at home is extremely soft. Her property is very clean. I am also a shoes-come-off-at-the-door farm girl so happy for the same. Kinda wish I had taken the time to use the fire pit she provided. I hope you find this review helpful and accurate. I also read reviews when searching for properties.

  • Beautiful property very close to New River. We are fairly new to Airbnb, but if this is any indication of what to expect we will doing a lot of it in the future. Couldn't have been more pleasant. .

    Jeffrey2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place surrounded by nature. Great host!

    Wynter2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Cripple Creek Farm is exactly as described but with extra special in front of it. Valerie was very attentive as a host and gave great suggestions on things to see while respecting our privacy. If you need a peaceful place to go to in your mind, spend some time sitting on the deck by the creek. It is isolated, beautiful, and peaceful. Anyone that enjoys kayaking, biking, and hiking, this is a good pick. State Parks everywhere. One just as you turn off 94 onto the gavel road. I would stay again and suggest it to a friend.

    This 1800 Sq. foot home has three bedrooms and two baths, living room, den, kitchen and dining room and is located in the historic mill town of Fries, VA.
    It is a great example of life slowed down to a restful pace with beauty all around..There are still clothes lines in the back yards and most of the residents have lived here all their lives.
  • Rachel is an excellent host!!!

    John2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the house and the location. It was big enough for 4 adults, 1 teenager, and four kids under 4 years old. The host were kind and called the house to ensure we'd checked in okay and that we didn't need anything. We will surely go back to Nana's Place.

    Matthew2018-12-23T00:00:00Z

    This lovely shady, mowed campsite offers much privacy. It is a well-groomed grass site on a gently rolling landscape. Sleep under the stars or under the canopy of a mature walnut forest. You choose. Fire ring available. The vault toilet is approximately 250' away. No running water. Its only amenities are a vault toilet and fire ring. No trash service. This is a carry-in, carry-out site. IMPORTANT: This camp is "off the grid." Cell service is sketchy, including my phone (next door). Thank you.
    This campsite is located adjacent to the New River Trail State Park. Wake up and step onto the New River Trail.
    Ivanhoe Trailhead is right next door. The Ivanhoe location is smack dab in the middle of the 57.7 New River Trail. This area is very popular with bicyclists, hikers, and equestrians.
  • Patty's place was a welcome respite from a long travel along the Interstate. The proximity to the park trails was a great perk. It just so happened on the night of our stay that there was country music playing all night from somewhere off in the distance (not the Airbnb host).

    Tamarah2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place to camp along the New River Trail. Easy trail access about 14 miles from the trailhead in Fries made for a wonderful day trip before our campout. The campfire pit was great and the hosts provided some potable water. There was enough flat space for a 9 person tent. We'll certainly be back!

    Courtney2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • We camped at Patty's campsite during our bikepacking trip of the New River Trail. The campsite is right next to the trail yet is very secluded and private. Patty and her husband thoughtfully left us some county water and firewood kindling and were very responsive to any questions. The Dollar General is located a quick quarter mile down the road. We loved staying in Ivanhoe and would recommend it for anyone looking to avoid the main campgrounds.

    Take in stunning views of Elk Creek Valley and Jefferson National Forest from every room of this comfortable and updated home sitting at 3500ft elevation. Privately situated with all-weather access via a paved road off US-21. When you’re not exploring the country outside the gates, you can roam 48 acres of authentic Appalachian terrain right on the property. You’ll find unimproved wildlife trails through the forested hills, large rock formations, a seasonal spring, and a cascading stream.
    Three bedrooms sleep seven comfortably (4 adults, 3 kids). The spacious new kitchen has everything you need to settle in for a while with all the necessities. Sip your coffee over breakfast, and take in a gorgeous panoramic sunrise over distant hills before heading out for the day. Marvel at the warm glow lighting the valley right from a large sectional sofa as the sun sets. Enjoy a night cap outside and see millions of stars and the sweep of the Milky Way as you haven’t seen it before in Virginia from the deck after the sun sets. New in 2020: We have added a stone fire pit just off the back patio. Now guests can relax in the evenings around a fire regardless of the season, while still enjoying all of our magnificent views!
    Only minutes from the town of Independence and its historic courthouse, restaurants, shops, and seasonal farmers markets, Whitetail Spur is convenient to countless attractions in southwest Virginia and nearby North Carolina. Hike the Appalachian Trail at Mt. Rogers, Virginia’s highest peak; go tubing and kayaking on the New River; or take a cruise along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The area is the home of Bluegrass music, and hosts several festivals and themed events throughout the year. Tour area wineries and catch trout for dinner from one of the many state-stocked streams.
  • Beautiful location and home.

    Hannah2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacular view with open (and warm) accommodations. House has been updated, and hosts (albeit remote) are very well organized and communicate well. Overall, a very positive experience, and hope to come back in future years.

Hosts Clay and Kristen are great with communication and giving you all the information you need. Definitely recommend!!

    Nicole2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • The house and views will exceed your expectations. My wife and I have stayed at cabins and houses in NC, WV, VA, ME and UT and this house has one of the best views that we have experienced from a rental house. The house has all the amenities that you will need for a week's stay in the Virginia Highlands. It is convenient to the Grayson Highlands State Park, Mount Rogers and the New River Rail Trail. Clay and Kristen are very quick to respond to any questions that you may have before and during your stay. Be sure to book your vacation here soon because this place will be popular!
