About Suzy & Sara, Owners
My husband and I purchased this beautiful farmland property on our honeymoon! He was a new Assistant Professor in M.E. at VATech and I was a late-blooming student in University Honors/English. We were blessed with the birth of our two sons six and nine years later. We built our new family home, now Blackberry Morning Retreat, in 1988. Our family shared many wonderful years together in this sacred place. We are all Hokies: Hal, M.E. 1960; Suzy, U.H./English 1974; Brooks, U.H/M.E. 1997; Shane, U.H./Biology & Political Science 2003.
Suzy & Sara, Owners purchased this House in 1969
Why Suzy & Sara, Owners chose Newport
Hal & I fell in love with the farm on our first visit - on our honeymoon - looking for a place to make our home together. On that beautiful Spring day in April, 1969, we walked together up the mountain, sat on a big rock and looked down the valley at that incredible view - and knew this was where we wanted to be - forever.
What makes this House unique
Stunningly beautiful views and wonderfully peaceful environment on a private farm (268 acres) with a contemporary cedar, fieldstone & glass house that wraps you up in comfort. Adjoining the Jefferson National Forest and the Appalachian Trail, and the many outdoor activities nearby. Yet convenient to the people & culture of Blacksburg & VATech.
