We were looking for an interesting place to take our teens/young adults while visiting our kids at Liberty University. At first, we debated because it was 2 1/2 hours away and we weren't sure if we wanted to go that far for just a weekend, but we were SO glad we did! The idea of staying in old cabins was intriguing and it was perfect because the house has all the modern comforts with a rustic feel. It was impeccably clean, and it is obvious upon entering the house that Clara and Brian take pride in their home and pay close attention to details! Everything we needed (or wanted) to make us feel comfortable was right on hand. Clara graciously answered my many questions when we were making our final decision and told us all about the nearby hiking trails. After booking the property, she gave us all the necessary information we might need. The view out back was breathtaking! We were grateful that we could use the property at the bottom of the hill with a large, grassy area and three ponds. My son brought his fishing pole and we all enjoyed the colorful leaves and flowing creek while he was fishing. Be sure to go down there if you stay! On Clara's recommendation, we hiked to the top of Buffalo Mountain for amazing 360-degree views. We were brave and went at sunset and it was some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever experienced. Coming down the steep and somewhat rocky, narrow path in the pitch black is not for the faint of heart, though, even with flashlights. I also highly recommend the Black Ridge Trail at nearby Rocky Knob. It takes you through woods, over a creek, and through a cow pasture (watch where you step), and has beautiful views, also. Be sure to print out any directions to anywhere you want to go ahead of time!!! There is no cell service, so the phones/GPS will not work at all when driving, even into the closest town. Print out or take screen shots to store on your phone of any information about trails, local business hours, etc. because Googling them will not work when you are out and about. There is Wi-Fi in the house, so you can do all your research there. There is a Food Lion that we went to in Floyd about 20 minutes away - stock up on what you need before coming. No cell service in Floyd either. We enjoyed grilling dinner and s'mores (bring charcoal). There are two decks for your enjoyment. Chairs, basic toiletries, condiments, and even firewood are all provided by the generous hosts. We are looking forward to returning!
