About Glen and Amy Knowles

Our small family of 4 loves this area and all it has to offer!

Glen and Amy Knowles purchased this house in 2006

Why Glen and Amy Knowles chose Glasgow

We were looking for a great vacation spot for our family. We are big VMI fans, and love going to many of the college sporting events. Easy drive to many attractions, like hiking, biking, state parks. We can fish out of our back yard! We have been blessed to be able to relocate here full time!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came to visit our daughter at W&L one last time before graduation. We wished we would have stayed here 4 years earlier! We kayaked down to the cabin on part of Buffalo Creek and had a great time. The view from the cabin was awesome - the stream is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here 7/4/17 & 7/5/17. Nice river right out back for fishing, skipping rocks, or just relaxing. Very nice owners who came over and met us as we were out by the river. Definitely plan on going back!

Forest, VA

Lovely property- very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. Everything was clean and well stocked. We met with one of the owners - very delightful and helpful. The view from the deck was very relaxing and the drive to Lexington was about 10 minutes. We went on several trails around Lexington and shopped around the town of Lexington. We would definitely stay again. Thanks for a great time!!
