Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My husband and I both grew up in the wonderful small town of Fries. Although time and circumstance moved us away, we have always made sure to come home as often as possible to our beloved Blue Ridge Mountains. Please call for additional information about River Mist Retreat. Shannon (508) 842-1154
Why the Owner Chose Fries, VA, USA:
We purchased River Mist Retreat from family in 2009 so that we would have a place of our own to entertain family and friends during our visits home. We have a special connection to this property as we shared many picnics here while we were dating.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is truly a relaxing retreat. It's secluded with enough amenities to keep you occupied (hammocks, a fire pit, horse shoes, volley ball, playhouses, the creek, and the river). The head of the New River Trail in downtown Fries is five minutes from our property. As an old railroad line, the terrain of the New River Trail is gently sloped without hills, making it perfect for visitors off all ages to hike, bike, and ride horseback. For adventure seekers, canoes, kayaks, tubes, and bikes can be rented from New River Outdoor Adventures. Several guests have enjoyed a four hour float from the public boat landing at Riverside on Route 94 back to River Mist Retreat. We hope that our guests enjoy River Mist Retreat as much as we do and create memories to treasure!
