"Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay in this cabin. It was so quiet and peaceful. The cabin was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. We felt very at home here and plan to return in the fall. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay very enjoyable."

"My wife dreams of retiring in a log home on a stream and nestled in the woods. While we're not there yet, I was able to give that to her at the Fancy Gap HideAway for a few short days. She was delighted. The cabins are immaculate and extremely well-equipped, with an attention to detail rarely seen. For those considering a nice getaway, these cabins come highly recommended. The area is so very peaceful. The Golden Eagle is a little more "woodsy" and has a nice view of the stream from the porch. It is also a little closer to the rushing water sounds generated by a small cascade. The Black Bear is a little less closed in by the trees. Both share a nice common deck area down by the stream with individual picnic tables to enjoy the stream up close. We will definitely return!"

"The River Mist Retreat was amazing! My husband and myself, mother, and family friend spent the week in this immaculate home for a much needed vacation and we were not disappointed! From sunrise coffee on the balcony overlooking the river to the lazy afternoons reading in the hammock to the well stocked "double" kitchen to the plush beds we can't say enough about this place! Shannon is an AMAZING host and soooo nice! This is the first vacation we have taken EVER where we were content going absolutely nowhere except grocery shopping and hitting a couple specialty shops in Galax! We spent our week napping, eating, grilling, making s'mores around the firepit, talking, laughing, playing cards and walking down the lane to the creek, where we "swam" and enjoyed wild blackberries. There really is no need to plan outings here. The outings we had planned we scrapped! This was our most relaxing vacation to date! We highly recommend the creek for cooling off (which I NEVER wanted to leave) and The Cafe for the best breakfast in Fries!!! Thanks to Shannon and Scott for their hospitality and entrusting us with their beautiful home💜"
