About Robin A Fincher

This is a precious privately owned home and has been in our family since it was custom built in 1981.

Robin A Fincher purchased this house in 1981

Why Robin A Fincher chose Blue Ridge Highlands

Close to Floyd County, minutes from towns Hillsville, and Galax, Virginia. Mount Airy, North Carolina (home of Andy Griffith, Mayberry) is a 20 minute drive south down the mountain.

What makes this house unique

The quietness and serenity are wonderful there. You are just minutes away from charming towns and many activities, but if you need 'downtime' this is THE place to come.

Awesome getaway! Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for my wife and I, and our 2 dogs. The host was extremely helpful and was quick to respond to any questions we had. The check in process was smooth and easy and, to our surprise, the cabin actually looked better in person! The cabin was very open and spacious and offered breathtaking views of the mountains. The area was extremely quiet and isolated, but close enough to local towns & attractions. The property was very well maintained and very clean. We can't wait to come back!

Everything you could want out of a weekend mountain cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is an absolute breath of fresh air! Like everyone else said, the pictures do not do it justice! Beautiful, warm, welcoming home. My husband has been working in VA so we decided to meet halfway for a relaxing weekend and I'm so glad we picked this cabin. The view of the mountains when the sun rises in the morning is breathtaking. Our golden retriever had the best time playing with the neighborhood dogs in the front yard. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare any kind of meal so you don't hve to leave the cabin unless you want to. The tv picked up most of the network channels so my husband was able to catch a few plays of the weekend's big football games. Robin, the owner, couldn't be more sweet, considerate, and accommodating. We hope to be back very soon! Thank you!

THE place to stay for a Pet Friendly Rental!

  • 5 of 5

From the two large hammocks in the large backyard to the two front porch swings, everything about this house says, "Slow down and Relax!"

This rental is one of my favorites! We could have easily spent the entire time in the hammocks in the backyard under the trees with the cool mountain breezes! Inside, the house was very clean, well-supplied, and very comfortable! The open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen is the perfect size for a family, and the wood ceiling and decor is very welcoming and makes you feel at home. The 2 bedrooms are the perfect size with large closets! Our dog enjoyed the house and the large yard of new smells and areas to explore. This house has been a home to two generations of family (although it is not old), and it makes you feel at home and part of its friends and family the moment you walk inside,

There are neighbors in the area but they are quiet and non intrusive. On one side of the property is a large, planted field, and one the other side is another planted area of trees and bushes separating you from the neighbor.

We enjoyed how close you are to the Blue Ridge Parkway(less than 2 miles) and enjoyed our visit to the Blue Ridge Music Center (30min drive), Mount Airy, NC(Home of Andy Griffith and essentially, Mayberry in historic Mount Airy), Galax (within 30 minutes and has a Walmart Super store) and Fancy Gap (15 minutes away). Another fun trip was seeing the Peaceful Heart Alpaca Farm in Fancy Gap.

Robin is a wonderful hostess and truly wants you to enjoy your visit. She met us at the house when we arrived and introduced us to her house, then checked on us after a storm to make sure that everything was okay. I felt as if we were friends by the time we left.

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Last October my best friend and I met at Fancy Gap Cabin for a fall getaway. The accommodations were perfect with everything we needed. So nice to find a pet friendly place so my pups could come, also. Robin couldn't have been nicer and was so helpful. It rained quite a bit so we didn't get to enjoy all the backyard fun, but that is where the amazing front porch comes into play. Huge front porch to sit and relax even in the rain! We could still enjoy the outdoors and lot's of light through the sliding glass doors. My dogs loved looking out and feeling the outdoors during the times we didn't go out. Lot's of wonderful places to explore nearby. Can't wait till we go back to Fancy Gap!

A Special Little Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband was working in Va for sometime and we were looking for some place in between to meet for a weekend with our two young girls and our Chocolate Lab. Let me just say that the pictures don't do this house justice. Upon arrival, Robin was there to show us the house and where everything was. She was so accommodating and even left us some delicious cinnamon rolls which my girls loved. We found the house to be so comfortable, cozy, and well stocked with everything you need. Our girls loved the hammock in the back and the we enjoyed the porch swings on the porch. My eight year old and I woke early to watch the sunrise from the front sliding glass doors and listened to music on the Bose stereo. We also had a few little dance parties in front of the fireplace. One of the best parts of the stay was watching our 10yr old lab play in the front yard with the local dogs. While there, we visited the Alpaca farm and drove into Galax to explore the downtown. We ate at the Galax Smokehouse after Robin recommended it and thought it was very good. We also went hiking in Greyson Heights and found it to be one of the most beautiful hikes we've ever been on. All in all, this house was the perfect place for our little family to reconnect together and disconnect from the outside world. Thanks Robin!
