"We loved the place: the dock, the evening fires, the great house and land, the wonderful view of Claytor lake.
The first day we dropped kayaks into the lake from the State Park and rowed them over, its very close, but the end of the week we carried them up the stairs and up the path to the road. That was a big effort but quicker than driving to the park - most people won't want to do that.
We biked the New River bike path and crossed several bridges and through a tunnel. That was a great trip.
We saw many dear and at least 10 turkeys lived just over the hill on the way out.
Its easily one of the best vacations we've ever had."

"Excellent place for relaxing by the lake. The location of the house is wonderful. The home has plenty of room for everyone to spread out. It was also very nice to have access to the canoe. Would certainly recommend this home for a stay at Claytor Lake!"

"We had a great vacation at this property. The house was quiet and remote and was situated on the river in such a beautiful location. We had sun on the lawn from about 1030am until about 5pm. The porches were beautiful and the screened porch was so nice to sit on to read and relax in the mornings and evenings. It was wonderful that the property is pet friendly, our dogs absolutely loved swimming in the river. The current wasn't too strong and never felt dangerous. The water was absolutely beautiful and we actually sat in it most of the day."

"My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at Pilots's Perch. As soon as we pulled into the front driveway, our mouths dropped because we were so taken by the view. We must have stood in the driveway for about 15 minutes before actually entering the cabin haha. It didn't feel like we had driven up the mountain very far, but once you drive into the neighborhood you can actually see how high you are. I have never seen a better view. We were greeted with a very rustic entrance with 2 wonderful wooden rockers on the front porch, giving us the feeling this would be a house full of character. Even the doorbell is adorable! You will see what I mean. I noticed there have been a few updates since the pictures have been posted on here. It's nice having wood floors all over the main floor. I was expecting carpet so that was definitely a nice surprise. The hot tub was amazing. We used it at various times of the day, not just at night. So relaxing. There are several chairs and couches outside to enjoy while reading a book or working on your tan. The weather was perfect. We were lucky enough to see a mother deer and her fawn walking behind the cabin 2 days in a row. We also saw several groundhogs. Basically there are not enough good things we can say about this place. The homeowners are wonderful people who obviously spend a lot of time and effort ensuring their cabin us perfect. We will definitely be back! We pretty much decided that as soon as we pulled in. Neither of us wanted to leave. One more thing! If you have a good pair of binoculars I would suggest bringing them. There is a small pair at the cabin if you don't own any. There were many hawks flying close by and it would give you a closer view of the wildlife. Thank you Roxanne and Clint for having such a wonderful cabin and sharing it with us!"
