"My daughter and I met here for a mother-daughter weekend biking and hiking trip. The cabin was a perfect size and the hot tub was so relaxing after our Virginia Creeper bike ride and the hike at Gentry Creek Falls. Leon, the owner, was quick to respond to my emails and had everything ready for us. He even suggested some great places to eat in Mountain City! My son and his wife want to bike the trail and I will definitely recommend staying at Black Bear Retreat."

"My husband and I, along with our 2 children, another couple and their twin girls, all spent memorial day at the lake house and it was one of the best vacations we have had! Very relaxing, beautiful weather and the water was great! The house was perfect for what we needed and had all the amenities. We hope to stay again this summer!"

"We are bicyclists who booked a last-minute 3 night stay at Riversong Farm. The house was in a lovely country setting and very clean and tidy. It was less than 1/4 mile to the Alvarado Station on the Virginia Creeper Trail, with an 8 mile ride into Abingdon and about the same distance to Damascus. The garage was a perfect place to store our bikes and had a ping pong table plus lots of games for children. In the evenings we enjoyed the front porch and watching the fireflies. However, the house would not be good for anyone with phyical limitations. Being a remodeled older farmhouse, the floors were at different levels, with a step up or down between the rooms. Also, the toilet in the half bath was on a raised platform about 1' high, and was a bit awkward to negotiate. We had a great stay, loved the area and the trail and would definitely rent this house again."
