"My wife & I had to leave our home for 5 days while our hardwood floors were refinished. Because we had to take our two dogs with us, a hotel was out of the question. Shannon accepted us with our Border Collie and Miniature Dachsund and we couldn't be more delighted. We enjoyed relaxing hours sitting by the New River just below the house, snoozing in the hammock, while our dogs played on the lawn or soaked up the sun. The house was spacious and very well equipped, and we took advantage of the BBQ on the deck and the horseshoe pit nearby. We also enjoyed lengthy bike rides on the nearby New River bike trail (57 miles, completely level -- just our speed). Shannon called twice just to make sure everything was in order (it was!). We definitely plan to return to River Mist Retreat next year!"

"Just spent 5 days at Pilot's Perch Labor Day week. Can't say enough good things about the owner Roxanne! She is awesome. If you have any questions that haven't been already addressed on her FAQ info that she sends to you...all you have to do is email and you will get a response usually within a few hours. Roxanne also provides you with a detailed list of everything you need to know/do upon arrival & prior to leaving. We rode our motorcycles to Pilot's Perch & all the roads are paved, in good condition and the garage was a perfect fit for 2 Harley's with room to spare. The house is also just perfect. The views, fire pit, hot tub, gas grill & the accommodations are 5 star. We traveled all around Virginia, North Carolina & Tennessee on our motorcycles and there are many great roads with plenty of twists & turns. The grocery store is within a short drive from the house. As well as gas stations, restaurants & other points of interest. If you decided to come stay at Pilot's Perch...you will not be disappointed!!!!"

"After many years of talking about doing the Virginia Creeper Trail, we finally made it down from Norther VA. We wanted a cottage so that we could come and go as we pleased. What a great getaway and Jim and Jennifer were so welcoming and friendly. We usually do B&Bs...we for sure will be back to Meadow Cottage. It was pristine and so cheerful and the quiet we enjoyed was unbelievable...made coming back up to Beltway City even more sad. We arrived to find a loaf of Jennifer's apple bread, juice and 1/2 and 1/2 for our coffee in the AM and on the last evening, Jennifer dropped by with cookies.....loved this place!!"

"Staying in this cabin was amazing! I can't begin to say enough good things about our experience staying here. Karen was wonderful and gracious...even called to check in on us to see how things were going. We had overcast weather. However, the views of the fog lifting from the valley below was relaxing to see each morning from the covered back porch while sipping coffee. At night, the city lights far below were beautiful as well. The natural beauty/peace and quiet was wonderful. Much to see in the surrounding countryside too....including the New River Trail State Park not far away. Mt. Airy is very close by and so delightful to visit and see all things Andy Griffith and Mayberry. I highly recommend staying here and I look forward to coming back. Very well furnished! Once was not enough for us!
P.S. I loved the openness of the kitchen/dining/living room!"
