Nice house with beautiful view of mountains.

  • 4 of 5

House well prepared with notes about how to use many items in home. The back of the house including the dinning room let you enjoy a most beautiful range of mountains. Owners are very thoughtful. We are not owners of dogs at this time but this is a house very accommodating dog owners.

Gorgeous place and great for our dog. Views are spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful peaceful property with stunning views of horse pastures and mountains. The house is spacious and immaculate with a lot of character. The host family has provided all you could need and detailed instructions for everything to include shopping and dining and attraction recommendations.

Our dog loved every minute of being able to run around and enjoy herself. Blankets are provided to put over furniture for the dog and they even had a crate set up.

There is a beautiful baby grand piano with some music provided.

We will definitely be returning when we are in the area again.

We've found our "homeaway" from home!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing! Windy Hill far exceeded our hopes. It is so warm and beautiful and peaceful. The extras that Paul and Teri included, and the little notes of welcome were so special. Our dogs were thrilled with the huge fenced in area and loved running free. We spent a lot of time just being "home", but there are so many things to do and places to go. It's a great area. Paul and Teri have thought of everything we could possibly want in a vacation home, and then some! They even tuned the piano for us! That was great. We look forward to more stays at beautiful Windy Hill. Thank you Teri and Paul for an exceptionally lovely week.

Great place to relax and gather the family

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Teri's home is located on a small hill which gives you a great view - overlooking their horse farm and out to the mountains.

The home was spotless, very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need.

Paul and Teri were very responsive and it was a pleasure to work with them.

Grandma Graham is already talking about getting back to the house for the Fall changing of the leaves!

Thanks again for letting us enjoy your home while we celebrated our daughter's (last one!!!!) graduation at Radford.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, niece and I (from PA, DE & SC) met here for the weekend. The house had everything we could possibly have needed and was very comfortable. Looking out over the horse pasture was a special treat! We would love to visit again in the fall to see the leaves.
