Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This 1800 Sq. foot home is located in the historic mill town of Fries, VA. The beautiful New River flows by our small village on it's way up north. 'The New River Trail' follows the river from Fries to Pulaski for over fifty miles. It is a 'Rails to Trails' project for bikers, hikers and horses. There is very little incline or decent and you will find trestles, a tunnel, beautiful wild flowers, shoals and lots of cool shade in mostly secluded deep woodlands. The fishing is great along with canoeing, tubing and kayaking.

Blue Grass Music is plentiful with The Galax Fiddlers Convention and Fries Fiddlers Convention the second and third weeks in August.

The house is only 14 miles from the most visited National Park, 'The Blue Ridge Parkway' and the Blue Ridge Music Center.

For those of you with wonderlust there are lots of narrow dirt and paved roads with pastures, mountains, creeks and valleys to explore.

Clean home in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Nanas Place was a hit for both the adults and kids. The home was sparkling, beds were comfy, bathrooms and kitchen had everything one would want/need, and it was in a great location with easy access to the New River trail. The kids really enjoyed all of the boardgames and the croquet set ...which we played outside at least three times in a 24 hour period. The porch swing was a hit too! Thank you and we’ll be back again Richard and Rachel!

Charming, comfortable, clean.

  • 5 of 5

We used Nana's Place as home base for several days of family reunion activities. Found it well-provisioned, needing to add nothing except groceries. Convenient to reach trailhead of New River Trail for a morning walk enjoying the sights and sounds of the river. Owners very accessible and accommodating.

Great Place, Great Town, Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Nana's Place is SUPER clean and ideally located with easy access to the southern end of New River Trail State Park. The home has every amenity and supply, including washer/dryer, WiFi, and both front and back porches, which are a necessity to enjoy the cool, bug-free southwest Virginia air every evening! We could not have been more pleased, and it is a great little "secret" for those wishing to take advantage of the trail. There's even a cafe down by the waterfront.

The owners are very responsive, friendly, and assure that you have what you need, and they are readily available should you have any questions.

Highly recommend!!
