Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Ruth and Gerald Duncan We both are lifetime residents of this area. Ruth was a self employed Real Estate Appraiser with her own business located in Blacksburg for over 20 years. Her hobby now is Buck Lair Cabin. Gerald is a VT Hokie alumni. He is currently the Treasurer of Giles County , Virginia, an elected by the people position. He retired from the US Army civilian service as a custom software developer and designer. We take great pride in making Buck Lair much more than just a cabin. We also take great pride in making your experience at Buck Lair very special. It's not just a stay, it's creating a positive lifetime memory for the entire family when you rent Buck Lair.

Why the Owner Chose Newport, VA, USA:
Near Blacksburg VA Much more than a cabin, a Retreat So relaxing and quiet and peaceful, listen to the streams. Giles County is a place filled with natural beauty, fresh waters, abundant wildlife and fish, hiking trails, canoe liverys, suited for the active and also for those wanting to be close to nature and enjoy peace and quiet time. Yet this is only 8 miles from the Virginia Tech campus and Blacksburg, the adjoining small quaint college town with unique shops and dining experiences. Just 8 miles 4-lane highway to VA Tech Campus( Football, basketball, track, swimming, softball, events too numerous to list). NOT A HOTEL - You are renting a complex not just a bed. Fully anointed house, large porches, small hiking area, picnic shelter, with tables, chairs grill, fire pit, country swing

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
All natural wood construction quality built including some oversized timbers. We love it here because of the quaintness of country and college atmospheres so intertwined yet with distance, a place to relax and enjoy and a place to be adventuresome whenever the mood strikes. The mountain streams flowing through the front yard is so unique.
