Property description

River Mist Retreat is a secluded river front vacation rental home located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Grayson County, Virginia. With 2,500 feet of river frontage and forty acres, it offers endless opportunities for relaxation. While sipping your morning coffee on the front deck, you can watch the mist rising off the river and spot a nesting eagle or a timid deer crossing through the yard. Many enjoyable hours can be spent canoeing, kayaking, or tubing in the river. The riverfront floating dock is ideal for launching canoes and kayaks. The game area, which includes a volleyball court, log play houses, and horse shoe pits, provides fun for all ages. Peaceful afternoons can be enjoyed lazing in the hammock listening to the gentle flow of the river and an evening campfire will be the perfect ending to each day.

Cozy enough for two, but large enough to sleep 7, this home has a master bedroom with a queen size bed, a second upstairs bedroom with a double bed, a cozy nook off of the living room with a queen size bed and a futon in the game room. The home features a well equipped kitchen, 2 full baths, a dining room with seating for 8, a living room, 2 televisions (with Netflix streaming), and a game room with a foosball table, books, and board games for your enjoyment. If you really need to stay connected to work, email, or just want to be able to surf the web, we offer wireless internet connection. Simply bring your laptop and connect.

Our calendar is always up-to-date to assist you in making your travel plans. Please contact Shannon, the owner, at (508) 842-1154 to learn more about River Mist Retreat.

Owner info

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!
