  • The Perfect Place

    "My husband, myself, our two sons and their wives, along with a 4 wk old grand daughter, stayed at this cabin for the Hillsville Flea Market event. It was the perfect choice for us. I waited till pretty late to book a property because we weren't sure how many of us there would be going. Carol, the owner, is wonderful to work with. It was a little drive to Hillsville but the location gives visitors the perfect opportunity to explore Mayberry and other surrounding places of interest. The front porch is the perfect place to just sit out at night a relax with a cup of coffee. There's a open field across the country road and the road is very quiet. We were early risers for the flea market, and enjoyed the back sun room in the morning. Carol was concerned that with 6 of us it would be tight, but my youngest son brought an air mattress for the twin room and that worked perfectly. I hope to return again to explore more of the area."

  • Home away from home

    "Location was great! House was fully stocked with any and everything you wouldn't pack. (all you need to bring is what, if anything, you want to cook) House was CLEAN, welcoming, warm, stocked with games and even a game room for some pool. We will be returning with our mothers this fall. We took our children and grandchildren with us last fall. Close to everything. Amazing place."

  • Great house, great location, great customer service!

    "Eight of us stayed here for the William and Mary Labor Day weekend football game and we will definitely be staying here again. The house has tons of space, we could have easily had more people stay with us. Highlights include the huge steam shower and the giant back porch! Anita was incredibly nice and helpful throughout the entire process and was always available to answer any questions we had. We couldn't have asked for anything more and can't wait to book another trip to the Red Tin Roof!"

  • Great Place to Stay!

    "The owners were very easy to work with and the property is clean, well-maintained, and exactly as advertised (and very well equipped including dishwasher and washer/dryer). We had a teenager with us and he loved the loft bedroom upstairs. Having one full bathroom for each bedroom is a plus and the small den with futon can serve as a fourth bedroom. As the pictures suggest it has a great view, and is also very close to the bike rental shop and start of the Virginia Creeper trail. Highly recommended for cyclists, among others. Would stay here again if we are up this way. A great experience!"
