"We came for much needed R&R, and to celebrate several things: My 23rd anniversary, my daughter's 21st birthday, my 45th birthday, and my daughter's engagement! We had such a great time. Your home is beautiful, and you were right..once we got there, we really didn't want to leave. Thank you SO much!
We visited Chattaeu Morrisette, and experienced the Elite wine tasting. We went on hikes, and kayaking. It was wonderful!"

"Beautiful setting, comfortable accommodations, incredibly relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed our days at Bella Casa. The backyard with the river frontage was wonderful. Our young grandchildren enjoyed fishing and "treasure hunting" in the shallow waters just behind the cabin. It's also a kayaker's haven."

"My family comes from Indiana, South Carolina and Georgia to meet up with Virginia family for Thanksgiving. This was the perfect place. It was like living in a postcard for 4 days. We found it clean and ready for us. Lots of room. The living/family room was large enough for all of us to sit, laugh and play multiple games. Very well stocked with everything you could want in kitchen. A trip to Mabry Mill was a must to see it covered in snow. Chateau Morrisette was extra special since it was their Christmas tree lighting day and we not only experienced the wine tasting for free but also enjoyed the school choir performing Christmas songs and peformance of a scene from the Nutcracker by a local dance group. The owner was very friendly and lightning fast prompt in responding to email questions and calls."

"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."
