  • drean cottage

    "What a lovely dreamy place. The Palmers made me feel at home right from the start of my arrival asking me to join them for dinner with vegetables from their garden. They allowed me to stay in the studio apt the first night until cottage was available the next day. Everything was just as described on the VRBO website and more. Words cannot describe the views and tranquility of my stay. The cottage was decorated with so much charm, very clean down to the pressed linens, fresh cut flower placed around the house.Theresa made arrangements for horse back riding (thanks again Gary) near by and walks along their property. I really enjoyed my early mornings waking up to the cows, deer and turkeys, I never saw the bears I had heard about. What gorgeous sunsets every evening and stars. Plenty to do close by New River State Park, Floyd, Chateau Morrisette, Grandfather Mtn and Boone and of course Blue Ridge Parkway. Theresa and Brian were very gracious to say the least and enjoyed many nice conversations with them. This was the best place for me to de-stress for a week. I will definitely return again. Thanks again to the Palmers and enjoy your winter!!"

  • Beautiful mountain retreat

    "We just returned from a 4 night stay at Journey's Retreat. It was more beautiful than imagined, with every amenity provided. From a well-stocked, gourmet kitchen, to beautifully designed living quarters, every detail in this home has been thoughtfully executed to provide guests with all the comforts of home and more. The mountain views were amazing and we loved sitting on the balcony each morning and watching the days come to life. In the evenings, we cozied up to the fireplace with members of our family and spent time catching up on times past. We enjoyed every moment of our wonderful, memorable stay and can't wait for the opportunity to come back. If you visit Journey's Retreat, you will not be disappointed! A short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, we loved the fall leaves, picturesque mountains, valleys and especially, Maybry Mills. Be sure and visit the Dutch Oven in Hillsville for the best reuben, homemade breads, doughnuts and muffins, made by Dutch Amish owners, fresh each day. Thank you to owner, Dr. Jack, and caretaker, Jerry, for making our stay perfect in every way."

  • Perfect location for a girls' retreat

    "Eight adult female family members converged upon this lovely location for what we hope is the first of many Girls' Getaways! It was a perfect meeting place for us coming from VA, SC, NC, and OH. The crisp, frosty mornings gave way to warm and bright afternoons, perfect for horseback riding, hiking, and porch sitting. The on-site staff was attentive but not overly so. They were only a phone call away if we needed them. We kept a roaring fire going in the upstairs fireplace going for most of the weekend just to knock the chill off. The cabin was clean and well appointed. There was plenty of space for all of us. The two little girls who came with us thought the room upstairs in the loft area was built just for them! Large windows in the living room overlook the beautiful pastures and mountains, and we delighted in seeing the horses at a distance each day. Branden, the nephew of the property manager, came over and helped our little ones get up on "Misty" the white horse and ride around the property for a bit. They loved it and he was very good with the kids. Our group is already looking towards a return trip to make this an annual event! Sherman, the owner, was very easy to work with and his communication was always very quick, which I appreciated as the "event coordinator". Thank you for everything!"
