Escape to the beauty of the mountains and the sounds of the New River. The Hokie Hideaway makes you forget about all of your daily stresses. It is just a short walk to the banks of the New River where you and your family or friends can enjoy many exciting activities or welcome rest and relaxation.
The Hokie Hideaway is actually located in McCoy, VA in Montgomery County, which is only 15 minutes from the VA Tech or Radford U.. Whether you enjoy canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, tubing or just being lazy, the Hokie Hideaway is a wonderful place to enjoy your stay away from home.
If it’s adventure you’re looking for, you will want to visit New River Junction Outfitters, which is less than a five-minute walk. They offer tube and canoe rentals. You can enjoy a lazy day on the river.
Big Falls (Mccoy Falls) is approximately a 15 minute walk and well worth it. There you will find excellent fishing holes and beautiful scenery and water falls over big rocks. For experienced boaters and fishermen, the Hokie Hideaway will be an excellent place to stay for a fun weekend. Only skilled waterman should attempt the falls at water levels above three feet (mostly early spring and winter).
Numerous hiking and bike trails are located in the surrounding area.

Cozy and comfortable
Cozy and comfortable
We rented the Hokie Hideaway with friends this past weekend. The house is a wonderfully rustic getaway, with all the comforts of home (e.g. central heat/air, a fully-functional kitchen, a charcoal grill, and a nice fireplace). The kitchen opens to the dining area which has a big table with a cute bench. Our kids loved the bench! We spent most of our time hanging out in the large kitchen which has seating around a bar, and in the living room which has seating for eight. The house is cozy, but easily accommodated our party of eight with two queen beds, a pull-out sofa, and a futon. The house is close to a number of activities. We walked to the river at the New River Junction (a popular tubing and camping spot) so that our kids could run around, throw rocks in the river, and watch trains go by. We also spent a day hiking the Cascades. One thing to note, for the urban-at-heart, is that the house has well water. We were fine with it, but urbanites might think the water feels/smells/tastes slightly different. Not an issue at all; just something to be prepared for if you've never experienced it. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to visiting again in November!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Hokie Hideaway visitors can enjoy the New River Junction Outfitters (approx. .04 miles from the house-an easy walk) where you can go tubing or canoeing or just sit by the river, go fishing and soak in the sun and the view. If you're lucky, during your stay, you might see a fighter jet, from Norfolk VA Oceana Naval Air Base fly low over (strafe) the river canyon and zoom over the U.S. Arsenal down the road. It is an amazing sight to behold! You'll also hear and see the railroad cars traverse along both sides of the New River.
