  • Simply Amazing...

    "It is hard to decide whether I am more impressed with the property or the wonderful service from the owner. Everthing was fantastic! The pictures don't do the property justice! From the privacy to the scenery and even the homey touches in the cabin... we were all just swept off our feet by the River Mist Retreat. My group of 5 slept comfortably in the cabin where we had plenty of towels and kitchen items readily available, not to mention an excellent set up for cooking indoors our out with the propane grill (we used it many times with tasty results) There was wood already chopped for fires and a lauch ramp for the rafts we took out in the river every day of our vacation. A nap in the hammock will make you rethink going home at the end of it all. The town was fun to explore and the state park is close by. We even played horseshoes and hiked the creek that runs through the property. I could go on and on about River Mist and the family's incredible hospitality, but I will simply advise that you make this your vacation selection. I could not have been more satisfied with the booking or our decision to stay in the wonderful town of Fries! Thank you Shannon and family for sharing your retreat!"

  • Beautiful Home in a lovely location

    "We rented this home with 5 couples who were there for the purpose of riding motorcycles on the wonderful Virginia/North Carolina roads. We stayed for 5 nights and did 4 day rides out from here. We had 7 couples in total and 2 couples stayed in their sister home, Shady River Cabin. The home met our needs very well and the owner was very kind to us and even drove us in to town to pick up pizza. He also built us a bonfire. One helpful hint if you are traveling as friends/couples: There are 3 full bathrooms,2 of them are inside of bedrooms, (the couple in the master bedroom said "we are living a dream" so put your early risers in those two bedrooms. Great home! We had a lot of fun."

  • A perfect get away spot

    "The Cabin was clean, well equipped for our needs and situated to allow views of a lovely meadow and watching sunsets over the mountains. Loved the swing and glider on the front porch and the option to escape to the back deck when the sun got too bright and hot on the front porch. The AC was handy during the heat of the afternoons when we were there."
