Beautiful location and spacious home
We spent the week here and just had the most wonderful time with family! The house is huge and each of us had our private space and bath. The kitchen was perfect for preparing meals for all of us. The best part was the river. We kayaked every day and the water was great to just wade and/or play in. The New River Trail is very close also and we biked quite a bit too! Overall, we loved this house and it’s location!! It’s perfect for a large family. We definitely will rent it again!!
Hi David! We are so glad you enjoyed your time! We hope to see you again.
Beautiful home, amazing view. Enjoyed every minute. Plenty of room for adults and children to do their own thing but also plenty of room for quality family time. A great weekend
Thank you Donna, for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again!
Great porch sitting space. We loved it. Thank you for sharing with us!
Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your trip and the porches, especially! We hope you will come again.
A Slice of Heaven
What an amazing home!! Looked like a Southern Living cover. Secluded with a spectacular view of the river. Tons of room. Extremely spacious. We loved the deck, upstairs covered porch, and the lovely sunroom. There were 10 adults and we all said it was one of the best places we had ever stayed. Could use some painting and pressure washing or I'd give it a 5 but we quickly forgot about that as we were having so much fun. Will be back!
We are so happy you had such a lovely time at the New River Lodge! And thank you for noting the need for a spruce up in paint/power-washing. We hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful Thanksgiving Gathering!
We joined our kids and grandkids for a Thanksgiving/Christmas celebration at New River Lodge. Everyone greatly enjoyed this home and our stay! The layout and anemities enabled all to be comfortable with room to roam. Coffee on the porch over looking the river was a favorite. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked, beds were comfortable, and everything was clean. We want to come back and intertube down the river in the summer! Took the nearby New River Trail (rails to trails) for a hike with the kids and it was a hit. Next day, rented some bikes in Fries and biked another section of the trail into the town of Fries. Perfect! All in all, New River Lodge and hosts, Amy and Susie were just great! We hope to be back!
Thank you Gayle! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again soon!
Enjoyed the beautiful riverside home for second time!
Great place to host large family gatherings. Two items of note: we lost electricity last night for two+ hours and water/plumbing stopped working. Also, it would be great to have a working wifi available.
Thank you for sharing this gorgeous home! We will be back!!
Hi Ben -- thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back. Very sorry you experienced a power outage!
