Todd house description

Luger Haus Inn - not quite a B&B but a little more than a Vacation Rental!

Luger Haus offers accommodations in our 3 bedroom, 2 bath Guest House with full kitchen, dining and living room facilities, and a 1-bedroom 1 bath apartment with full kitchen for short term rentals. Located directly on the south fork of the New river, enjoy the view from the front porch, bicycle on Railroad Grade Road, tube, kayak or fish the New River or just relax in the mountains of Todd.
Three bedroom, 2 bath house has a large master bedroom and bath downstairs with kitchen and living area and 2 bedrooms and shared bath on second floor. Three queen size beds plus a full size roll-away bed in one of the upstairs bedrooms. An additional single roll-away can be added for a minimal fee.

'Barn Apartment' is a 1-bedroom, 1 bath, full kitchen and living area for a quiet retreat. This unit has a queen bed with a single roll-away available. Maximum occupancy is 2 adults/2 children.

Options for rental of all units for a fun family or group getaway are also available.

Railroad Grade Road is a nice, flat bicycling road if you want to bike but do not want to tackle the hills of the High Country.
Downtown Todd is small but offers a historical walking tour, the Todd Mercantile, General Store and Rivergirl Fishing (fishing, kayaking, tubing and bicycle rentals). Riverside Restaurant is 2.5 miles away and offers B, L, and D.

Luger Haus is named for our friendly German Sheperd Luger who will greet you with his favorite toys for a play session in the front yard. His kitty, LK (Luger's Kitty) also known as Lucky, will also come to join the activities at his leisure. Children can feed the chickens and collect eggs.

In October, the apple trees are full of fruit for your enjoyment.

We are located 12 miles from Boone and 14 miles from West Jefferson. Golf is available in both towns as are shopping, antique stores, art galleries, mountain biking and numerous other activities to keep you busy.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is only 8 miles away and offers a beautiful drive with views and outlooks of the mountains. Grandfather Mountain is also not far and a wonderful place to hike during your stay.

After your days out and about, retreat back to Luger Haus to watch the sunset over the mountains, catch fireflies, watch the deer and just relax and rejuvinate.

Keywords: 6-acre farm, peaceful mountain views, on the South Fork of the New River, biking, fishing, kayaking, located 2 miles from downtown Todd and 8 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway in northwest NC.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Warren, Pam and Luger and LK are your hosts at the Luger Haus. We purchased this home in 2006 after finding the NC High Country on a vacation in 2001. We are retired engineers from NASA and now enjoy country living in the mountains during the summers and retreat to warm Florida in winter. Here in Todd, we have chickens, an herb garden, a blueberry patch, an inherited apple orchard, and plant a vegetable garden each summer. Luger, our German Sheperd, is also our host - he loves children and other dogs, loves to hike and play with his toys, and especially play with visitors - he truly believes that the only reason people come to his house is to play with him!!

                  Why the Owner Chose Todd:
                  We found the 'High Country' in 2001 after traveling the country during a severely hot summer - when we camped in Boone, in August, we had to turn on the heat at night as it was so cool! We decided to retire to this area. After searching for the perfect spot, we found Todd - with easy access to major roads, the towns of Boone and West Jefferson nearby - we fell in love with the peace and quiet of Todd.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  From Luger Haus, you can walk to the end of the driveway and bike on Railroad Grade Road, fish or kayak or tube on the river, or just sit on the front porch with a cup of coffee and watch the river.
