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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

    Stay in this secluded getaway on the historic beautiful New River! Enjoy the beauty of the outdoors with the comfort of a cozy cabin. The cabin is riverfront and guest have access to 2 kayaks INCLUDED with booking price! Enjoy 100+ acres of hiking/biking trails leading to beautiful mountain and river lookouts. Venture into the town of Galax and surrounding areas to experience some of the unique local viewpoints, restaurants, and festivals that make Southwest Virginia so great!
    Approximately 15 minutes from historic Galax, this vacation rental is very private and cozy. The river shoals can constantly be heard from the cabin. Trout and Small Mouth Bass can be caught here! It is not uncommon to see a Bald Eagle fishing the same spots! The cabin is very functional for up to 6 guest and includes a number of amenities. There are many walking trails that feature beautiful mountains, creek waterfalls, and of course the New River. Enjoy the cabin and the amazing wildlife.
    The closest neighbors are across the river. If privacy is valuable to your vacation, the cabin has plenty of it. Enjoy long walks and hiking on the property as well as 2 kayaks for the river. The cabin is also within driving range to many neat restaurants and shops in Galax and Independence. Two beautiful southwest Virginia towns you must visit. Check out my guidebook to see the many places our area offers! It is also important to note the location of our cabin is not the location shown on the map below. Our property is very secluded and does not register on GPS sometimes. Once you book, look for the detailed directions that will be given to you on this page or simply contact us!
  • The stay was great, remote, and lovely. There was no need to explore town, because the place itself was already perfect. The natural scenery was phenomenal along with the cabin. The hosts were great communicators and made sure that we found the location.

    Steven2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A beautifully remote location with great amenities and caring, responsive hosts. If you want to go, settle and relax, we highly recommend this lovely cabin.

    David2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice cabin, nice and secluded. Alittle difficult to find, make sure you read the detailed directions turn by turn. Other than that, great little place. We visited in the winter, would like to experience summertime as well with the river right there.

    Catherine2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is in an amazing location overlooking the river. The surrounding area is calm and relaxing and perfect for a family vacation. If you enjoy nature or just want to get away for a while then this is the place to go.

    Luis2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our family really enjoyed our time at the cabin. We brought our four young children and the kids we're never bored. They loved using The Kayaks on the river, playing board games on the deck, and swinging on the hammock. We rode our bikes down some of the trails and really enjoyed peace and seclusion. As a mom, the only thing I found lacking, was kitchen cookware. Not quite enough for a family of 6. Had to become creative with a few things. It would be nice to have some Pyrex or casserole dishes. But other than that, there was more than enough towels, sheets, pillows, and bedding.

    Shelby2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! The cabin, the location, the host(Glenn)...all far exceeded expectations.

    D. Eugene2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, smallmouth bass to be caught right out front, and great communication from the host. The perfect place for a family or two couples.

    Paul2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Glenn's place is a secluded cabin with a beautiful view of the New River from the back deck. The cabin itself is beautiful with knotty pine walls all the way up the high ceiling, a stone fireplace with gas logs and comfortable furniture, all very cozy. The first floor has a bedroom (very comfortable bed!) and full bath with double vanity. The second floor loft has another bedroom and full bath, all nicely done. The kitchen was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. We loved the whole setting, sitting on the deck, watching the deer grazing near the cabin and the wild turkey by the river, enjoying the sites and sounds of nature. It was the perfect place for a peaceful week. Just be warned, if you go you might not want to leave. Glenn was also a great host, very responsive.

  • If you are looking for a place to get away from it all at a good value this is it. Fresh eggs were good and I enjoyed hiking to the New River Trail from the property. James is an excellent host.

    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!

    Caroline2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • The landlord was very caring and turned on all the heating 2 hours in advance.

    Zhigang2019-11-02T00:00:00Z

  • A wonderful little cabin. The porch is awesome. The creek is lovely. Being able to walk over, cross the foot bridge to the trail for a nice long afternoon walk along the creek... It was a very romantic weekend getaway for us.

    Scott2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, comfy unique space! All the fun and adventures you need are all just a walk away! We spent most of our time walking the trails and hanging out by the fire pit! Great weekend

    Mike2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in several Airbnb rentals. Most of them were very good but this was the best ever! Honestly the photos do not do it justice. The location was perfect for riding our bikes on the New River Rail Trail. Sitting on the porch overlooking the stream was a perfect way to start and end each day. Very tastefully decorated. And while this is a pet friendly rental there was no odor at all. But there was the really scent of the soap in the bathroom! The bed was comfortable! The lighting was great. The treats were delicious. It was super quiet and relaxing.The towel warmer...what can I say??? I felt very pampered! We spent a wonderful three nights and even when it rained all day one day we enjoyed relaxing and listening to the rain on the roof! Well done!!

    Denise2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • The place is fabulous! Well stocked kitchen, special touches through out the home! View from the porch is great! Quiet location but easy access to stores and restaurants.

  • This is the second time we stayed here. The first time was several years ago and the house is just as nice as it was then. The owners have clearly taken very good care of it. Great location by the New River Trail along the creek. Beautiful.

    The home is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of southwest Virginia midway between the towns of Galax and Hillsville. It is conveniently located just three miles from Exit 19 off Interstate 77. One of the major events here is the Galax Fiddlers' Convention held in August. The dates this year are August 8 - 14. Another major event is the Hillsville Labor Day Flea Market and Gun Show which brings in about 100,000 people so it has been said. Dates are Sept. 2 - 5, 2016.
    This home is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of the southwestern part of Virginia. It is 80 miles southwest of Roanoke and 80 miles north of Winston Salem. The location is about six miles from exit 19 of Interstate 77. Twin County airport is five miles away. There is a multitude of activities in which to participate in the area. Hiking, biking, canoeing, horseback riding, etc. I have three available bedrooms with private baths. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and the basement room has a single twin sized bed for one person only. You should be able to see all three of my offerings on a normal browser on your computer. I have been told by Airbnb that they all might not show up on an app. You can search for any of these names to find my rooms; See Shirley's Homestead, West Bedroom/ Prvt Bath, the other two sites are named: Shirley's Homestead Walk-Out Basement Bed/Bath and Shirley's Homestead, East Bedroom/ Private Bath so you can search for any of those. The basement room cost is less than the other two rooms that sleep two.
    This is a beautiful rural area, peaceful and serene.
  • Shirley’s place is amazing and in a wonderful, quiet setting in the rolling hills of VA, yet only 3 miles off I-77. I have stayed here 3 times now on trips from GA to PA. Shirley is a great host, fun to talk to. You have to see her home! So large and furnished beautifully with everything you’ll need. And dead quiet, which is perfect after driving 400 miles in a day. You will have a memorable stay.

    Becky2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to stay. Spacious bedroom and bathroom with double sinks so that my husband and I each have our own separate vanity space; spotlessly clean; large area upstairs in the loft area for watching TV with plenty of movie options including Netflix and Amazon. Comfortable bed, linens, Dyson fan, outlets, extra blankets & soft sheets. Not to mention the amazing view out the window with shades allowing you to open or close. Shirley had coffee, snacks, water bottles for us. She made me a cup of hot tea upon arrival. Shirley will make you feel right at home and at the same time, allow you plenty of privacy. It’s our 3rd time there and we’ll be back again for certain. It’s our home away from home when we travel to visit family.

  • Beautiful house, beautiful area with a view of the mountains out of every window! The house was clean and was very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which was full of scenic places to enjoy the mountains. The home was clean and cozy. Absolutely perfect.

  • Everything was fantastic! The house was very clean, warm, and welcoming. My wife and I stayed here with our five children and everyone loved it. The ping pong table was a great touch. The only disappointment was that we had a very short stay due to our travel schedule.

    Chad2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, great value...we will stay again!

    Sara2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Once again we were not disappointed when choosing an airbnb. The home was clean and had all Amenities that we needed, beds were nice and comfortable and the layout was great for a family, the bunk beds were a great touch for a traveling family, we will be staying again in the future .

    Elizabeth2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! Mark and Susan could not have been better hosts! We pulled up to the perfect little home and were welcomed with a beautiful Christmas tree shining through the window. Check in was a breeze. We walked in to the most peaceful and homey environment. The Christmas tree was all lit up, it smelled so nice inside and the fireplace scene was going on the TV along with Christmas music. It actually brought me to tears. Our welcome could not have been any better. What thoughtful touches! Communication was great, they even offered local info to make our trip so much better! The people of Galax were so kind and we had such a great time! We all loved the ping pong table and the board games. The kids ran around outside and played football. Plenty of room. Having a washer and dryer was super helpful too! We could not have been happier with our stay and would recommend this home to anyone!!!

    Sandy2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was perfect! Cozy and so clean! Beds and pillows are comfy (the bunk beds could use a little cushioning but not bad). When you walk in, you are met with the cutest jar of honey that is so delicious and bread. I cannot get over how clean and great condition everything was...everything!! We come into town twice a year at least and will never stay anywhere but here from now on.

    Brandy2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Close access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and it is a must see when the leaves are changing. Overall this is a very clean and wonderful place to stay!

    Alex2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mark and Susan's home is LOVELY! Homey touches, clean, comfortable, it was just right for a long weekend exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway. The ping pong table was a hit with our boys, and we loved the "bee" themed decorations! Susan was very warm and prompt in communication--we had no problems whatsover during our stay. Really appreciated the washer/dryer availability after I wiped out sliding down into some mud! Great value for the price and we would definitely stay there again!

    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.

    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.

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.

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!

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
  • The address listed on Airbnb is not the correct address and it was very disappointing to have to drive an additional 45 min

    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.

    Tyler2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Sarah2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • We were thrilled to see a mini frig and the tent all set up with bedding and pillows. This is such a beautiful spot overlooking the river and you hear the river flowing even from a distance. It's private and amazing. We brought bikes and spent time on the trail and playing in the river.

  • A lovely house to stay in for a weekend trip. It was the perfect size for our family of 3, and had everything we could have needed. Central to Galax and Independence, so it didn’t take us long to get where we wanted to go. Kathy was a wonderful, thoughtful host!

    Laurie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

  • This place is an absolute delight! We were so surprised at how truly amazing the cabin was. We hope to end up back here someday!

    Jenn2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, updated cabin in a serene setting. Shelia was a wonderful host! We definitely plan to return!

    Rhonda2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot along the parkway. Comfortable bed and great shower!

    Holly2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, and right off the parkway. Outside of cabin could use some maintenance, but it is in a very quiet place. We slept soundly. I appreciated the cleanliness and the style.

    Jan2019-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Rustic but comfy. A super convenient place to stop for the night on my way down the Parkway.

  • Kathy's place is in a great location and was perfect for our weekend get-a-away in Galax. We had an entire 1 bedroom living space with a full kitchen, bath, huge living room, and porch all to ourselves. It was very welcoming and cozy. Kathy is an exceptional host, and she gave us wonderful suggestions for food and activities. She is very kind, attentive, thoughtful and friendly. We would definitely stay with her again on our next road trip through Virginia.

    James2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The owners are very hospitable. They made themselves available for anything we needed. The cabin cabin was very clean. It was stocked with snacks, drinks and coffee options. Front porch was great place to sit and relax. The pool table was a nice extra. The king size bed was very comfortable. We will definitely stay here again.

    David2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • All perfect during our 1 week stay in this cabin!

    Ruth2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome cabin tucked away in the beautiful VA countryside. Janis and Tim are the most amazing hosts and they have outfitted the cabin with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The space is super clean and cozy, with a variety of yummy snacks and a great selection of coffees. There is also a dorm fridge stocked with water and sodas. The downstairs space is great for hanging out and playing pool, and it also has a kitchen area. Location couldn’t be more ideal. The Blue Ridge Parkway is just a few miles away and good restaurants are within a 20-30 minute drive. We are already looking forward to going back!

    Kim2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect a very clean cabin and very friendly hosts. We have stayed with Janis and Tim twice now and have plans for our next visit come spring time. This is a great area, centralized to all the activities nearby. Book with the reassurance that you will be happy with your choice.

    Lazaro R.2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed the remoteness of the cabin. It is close to the Interstate but you feel like you are miles from civilization. There is plenty of time to sit and rock and unwind.

    Clodia2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Tim and Janis are very nice and make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Hope more people from Europe will spend some time in this beautiful region. If so, visit Tim and Janis, sit on there porch, just listen to the birds and watch the squirrels. What more do you need...

    Rob2019-10-07T00:00:00Z

The queen bed is very comfortable and is dressed with fresh linens, a 2” thick mattress topper and plenty of comfy pillows.

    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.

    Johnathan2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this place for my parents to have a getaway weekend for moms 71st birthday! They absolutely loved it, as I knew they would. The told me the falls were just amazing and they loved the little cabin!

    Vince2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • It is truly such an amazing little spot! Second time booking, will be returning again. Awesome house in a beautiful setting!

    Vince2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • The location was very beautiful and we completely enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The beautiful view of the falls from the cabin was blissful.

    Other things to do and see: Grayson Highlands State Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, Blue Ridge Music Center, Virginia Creeper Trail. Crooked Road Music Trail
  • 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".

    Matt2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Steve and Kit were great communicators and hosts. They really thought of every detail from an umbrella hanging by the front door to complimentary firewood by the back door. My buddies and I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.

    The yurt is directly off of the Blue Ridge Parkway and settles above a scenic mountain with an outside fire pit. It is pet friendly, please clean behind your pet and leave a $20. pet fee on the counter top before leaving. A hot tub is located beside the yurt. This getaway will allow guests to disconnect and enjoy the surrounding wildlife. Deer, bear, and other wildlife are in abundance. Near the Blue Ridge Music Center, many wineries. The Devils Den Preserve is 1 ml from the yurt.
    This yurt is in the woods, but within 100 yards of the BRPW. You will wish to stay longer, it is so comfortable. It is near lots of points of interest in the area. The location is convenient, only 2 miles from the intersection of the BRPW and hwy 52. The yurt has a combination great room and kitchen, a gas log fireplace, a small loft with a queen size memory foam mattress bed, a huge bathroom, and a hot tub on the deck. There is a flat screen tv with a minimum of 30 channels and a DVD player. The yurt is heated with two built in Eheaters, a gas log heater with a fan, and stays warm and cozy in the winter and cool in the summer.
    quiet and in the woods, yet just off of the Blue Ridge Parkway
  • Great vacation spot!

    Chantal2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first yurt experience and we were truly blown away. It is clean, comfortable and stylish. JoDee was super helpful and kind, and she provided thorough instructions so we had no trouble finding the place and getting ourselves comfortably settled in. The view is beautiful, and although there are two other places within eyesight, the yurt still feels cozy and private. It is a unique and fun lodging experience that still offers all the comforts of traditional accommodations (ex. hot showers, coffee, etc). I highly recommend it!

    Amber2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. We have stayed from CA to ME and this was by far one of my favorites. It was very clean and so many special touches. We hated to leave and have already booked again

    Dawn2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely the kind of place you never want to leave! Would highly recommend a stay here

    Ryan2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Joshua2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Bristol2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view for sunset/sunrise. Eclectic touches throughout the home!

    Heather2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best stay ever! Such a beautiful location and what a wonderful place to stay. All the personal touches made everything all the better (check out the side light in the bathroom!). The precut firewood was super handy and the two person hot tube is the BOMB. The other yurt is still under construction but I would love to come back with friends in the future. Super pet friendly, quiet and beautiful. Cannot wait to come back!

    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!!! :)

    If you have a big group, love motorcycles or want to try something different, this is the place for you! We are a motorcycle tour company and use this building as our base, now it's your own huge fun house! The building was first constructed in 1890, it's full of character and vintage motorcycle decor. With a pool table, darts board, sound system and huge communal area, you're sure to have a great time. The loft bunkhouse can house up to 14 people including two semi-private areas.
    On the bottom floor is our shop where we work on motorcycles, this will be closed off (though you are welcome for a tour when we are around). We have several motorcycles down there. The middle floor is where the fun happens! One half of this floor is set out like a diner with a huge poster of the iconic Easy Rider film, beneath that is a custom motorcycle from the 70s we found in a barn. In here we also offer a microwave, toaster oven, tea pot, coffee maker, cups, napkins, disposable plates and untensils. If you are a large group we can arrange catering for you, just let us know when you book your stay. There is also a toilet and sink down here should you need it. On the same floor you will find a huge communal area with a pool table, darts board, sound system, cable television, couches and full size refrigerator/ freezer. All of it is free for you to use! On the top floor you have a loft style bunk room. This is such an awesome place to sleep, the temperature is always favorable but there is air conditioning units at either end of the floor should you need it. Every bed has its own electrical socket with charging ports, side table and lamp. Up here is also another living area with old motorcycle magazines from the 60's as well as newer editions, a lava lamp and a world map with pins so you can "pin" your hometown, state or country. The room is set out like this: There are 10 single beds in the open plan area. (Open dorm style) On the other side there is: 1 queen bed (this is semi private with the use of a partition) 1 California King bed (this is also semi private with the use of the partition, note that you will have to walk past the queen bed to get to this bed) **Please confirm the number of guests in your party. Failure to provide the correct number of guests is against AirBnB policy and can result in the cancellation of this reservation There are also two restrooms for your use up here. Both of these are immaculate and they both feature ‘rainfall’ showers, a toilet and a sink. NO pets NO smoking or Vaping inside Just to be clear, these are our working hours: Monday 5:30pm- 8pm Tuesday - 10am - 6pm Wednesday - 10am - 800pm Thursday 10am - 6pm Friday 10am - 8:00pm Saturday 10am - 6pm Sunday CLOSED At these times we will be on the bottom floor or in the office. THE TOP TWO FLOORS ARE COMPLETELY YOURS: WE WILL NOT BE IN YOUR SPACE AT ALL :) However, If you need anything you are welcome to come down. Also, if you're interested in renting a motorcycle or going on a tour around the Blue Ridge Parkway, then let us know :)
    Woodlawn is a calm mountainous town set in the Appalachian Mountains. The region acts as a gateway to SouthWest Virginia. It is also 10 minutes from Galax, the Bluegrass capital of the world and the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. We recommend going to Millers bakery and deli for breakfast and lunch (closed on Sundays). For dinner there is Macado's, Galax Smokehouse, Creek bottom brewing company (a good place for beers too!), The Mason Jar and Rio Grande Mexican Grill in Hillsville . There is a Dollar General within walking distance should you need any food or miscellanies items. There is also Harmons Boots and Western store you can walk to, just be sure to check out the museum in the back as it holds a lot of our local history.
  • This is an AMAZING space...many new updates that are not pictured in the photo album! You will have so much fun here if you book this house, by far worth every penny!!

    Tracy2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was just like the title says, the coolest place to stay. We all wished we could of stayed longer. It was just an extra fun place to bring our older children to. Smiles, laughter, and the statement "Did you see this!" abounded because there were just so many interesting and fun features. All the children are asking when we can return. lol Definitely want to stay more than one night next time.

  • Our stay was beautiful, relaxing and accommodating. It was beyond our expectations. The drive up the mountain to the town coming off rt 77 north was scary and exciting all at the same time. Luckily Kathy told us a better way to leave town. We definitely look forward to staying there again.

  • You will be very pleasantly surprised at this spotless, scenic, beautifully decorated and comfortable place. Has all you need and nothing you don't need. Very well worth it in every way. The only problem we encountered was that our OnStar navigation system wouldn't work when we were leaving, but we were able to get directions on our phone. Would revisit in a heartbeat!

  • I always read reviews before booking. So I knew to expect nice. It really was exceptional. Kathy, has all the touches down to the music playing when you arrive. We were originally just looking for a place to rest on way home from Florida to Ohio, so the location was ideal and private for us and the dogs. This place however, was like booking a 5 star hotel. The bed was the most comfortable of stays. We didn't have to rush out in the morning which was exactly what we needed. I'm sure we will look for it again. True value!

  • This was a perfect home away from home while we visited family for the week. The home was especially clean, beautiful, and welcoming. After a long drive from Nevada, this home provided such a peaceful place to rest! The bed was extra comfortable and the host was very prompt and kind to answer any communication that we we had! We highly recommend this home and plan to schedule again in the future!

  • Shepherd's Rest has everything you need for a getaway. The space was very clean and tidy, and Kathy was very responsive to our last minute booking. The full kitchen was well equipped and we had an easy time cooking both dinner and breakfast (the works!). The 12 PM standard check out time felt like a real bonus to us... there are not many places that let you stay that long on departure day, and we really appreciated the ability to have a slow morning before hitting the road. Close access to the Blue Ridge Parkway was also great! We hope to be back for a longer stay!

  • Shepherd's Rest is well appointed, super comfy, and sparkling clean. We've stayed at several other cabins and cottages in Galax and none compare to Shepherd's Rest. Craig and Kathy are great hosts and have thought of everything.

    Donnie2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Shepherds Rest! Wonderfully quiet and relaxing, and the king bed is amazingly comfortable. We slept better than we do at home! We will definitely be back to your special hideaway!

  • Beautiful, spacious home in a lovely scenic setting. Very quiet and peaceful, super comfortable bed and bedding - loved it!

    Welcome to the Vass House! A warm and inviting, charming farmhouse-style home, located in the heart of Galax, Virginia. It has a beautiful wrap-around porch or outdoor patio to enjoy while reading a good book, listening to the water fountain, chatting with any friends or family who might be staying with you, or just sip on your coffee or cold beverage. I can accommodate more than one couple, but would need to communicate with me direct. Short or long term stays are available year round!
    Upon arriving you will find snacks, breakfast items, water, and coffee waiting for you. The common area upstairs (and the kitchen downstairs) both have a coffee pot, microwave, and refrigerator for your convenience.

We're also within walking distance to hear live Bluegrass Music every Friday night at the Rex Theater, and only about 10 miles from the Music Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you're looking for a day trip during your stay, you can drive up to White Top Mountain or Mt. Rogers and soak in the majestic views, catch a glimpse of wild ponies, or just enjoy a lovely hike. There's always so much to offer in the Blue Ridge Mountains! We hope you thoroughly enjoy your stay and look forward to meeting you.

  • This is a very comfortable place to stay, very convenient to places of interest and shopping in Galax. A beautifully decorated house in a quiet residential area, with all needed amenities. Rachel is a very thoughtful hostress. I cannot recommend her house highly enough.

    Myles2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel's home is spacious and comfortable. We especially loved the completely decked out kitchen, and the cute front porch. She was very responsive and helpful before, during, and after our stay. When we return, we will absolutely stay here again!

    Ben2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel's house is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect spot for a group or family. It is beautifully decorated, the bedrooms are comfortable, the kitchen is fabulous and super well-stocked (we had gadget envy), and the location is great. We rode our bikes right to the New River Trail for a day on the trail. We loved sitting on the front porch with our evening cocktails! Rachel may be new to hosting but she has this down. We highly recommend.

    Wade2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved this place! Beautiful kitchen and baths and stylish living room! Will definitely go back!

    Larry2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully beautiful home. Tastefully decorated, very warm and inviting. Will surely stay there again.

    Emma2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time staying in this Airbnb! The host, Rachel, provided us with everything we needed and more! She was available when we needed her both in person and through email. Her home is lovely! The kitchen was great! We especially loved spending time on the front porch where we enjoyed friends and family, and cool mountain breezes! The home was an easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants and an easy walk to Felts Park for the Fiddlers Convention. We would definitely stay here again!
