  • Peaceful Retreat

    "My husband and I had a last minute idea to meet our son and his wife over the weekend before continuing on to our vacation destination. Donna was very easy to work with, despite our last minute decision, and very prompt with answering emails and questions. Pura Vida is a very peaceful location; if you like quiet, this one's for you! Very clean and well kept. The last 3 miles is down a gravel road, so that may be an issue for some. We highly recommend Pura Vida and would definitely stay again!"

  • Tranquility is a good description for this home

    "We rented this home with 2 couples who were there for the purpose of riding motorcycles on the wonderful Virginia/North Carolina roads. We stayed for 5 nights and did 4 day rides out from here. We had 7 couples in total and 5 couples stayed in their sister home, Coldridge Manor, 2.4 miles away. The home met our needs very well and the owner was very kind to us and even drove us in to town to pick up pizza. He also built us a bonfire. Two helpful hints: There are 2 bathrooms, 1 of them is accessible only by going outside and down some stairs and using a sliding door to enter basement level, and if you are traveling by motorcycle you should know that there is about ¼ mile of gravel road to travel right before you get to the house, then down a small gravel driveway to park, we traveled it several times without incident. Great home! We had a lot of fun."

  • Great Cabin, Great vacation

    "Diana and Mark were great to us we loved the cabin. We will come back again in the fall. We loved the hot tub and my son loved the loft. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need, cold glasses in the freezer. We wished we could have stayed another night but we had to head home. The cabin was very clean and very cozy. We had a lovely stay."

  • Beautiful and Peaceful

    "A beautiful place to get away and relax. We had a blast fishing in the stocked pond and traveling the area to take photos of the awesome landscape. The cabin itself is gorgeous and very accommodating. It was everything we had hoped for in a family vacation. We cant wait to come back."
