About Vickie Blevins

We are Rodger and Vicki Blevins and we both grew up along the banks of the New River. We were high school sweethearts who married young and then we too raised our family here in our beautiful little town in the mountains. We enjoy our time working here on the property, spending time with our church family and of course spoiling our three children and three grandsons.

Vickie Blevins purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Vickie Blevins chose Blue Ridge Highlands

After renting space for my salon in this property for years, to opportunity presented itself for us to purchase. As retirement was approaching, we thought this would be a good investment for us to work at in the upcoming years. When we bought the property, it was in varying states of disrepair. We have been working on this property to restore it, update it and bring new life into our community. We have enjoyed working here and are thrilled at the opportunities to host and meet new visitors to our south western Virginia town.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment puts you in the heart of town, but still gives you the peace and tranquility of a cozy nest. You are just steps away from the New River, the New River Trail, beautiful grassy areas along the river perfect for picnics and family play and also local dining.

....and of course, the beautiful mountain views and roaring sound of water falling over the dam.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Owner was the best! Replied quickly, answered all my questions and had no issues at all. The family enjoyed fishing in the river which was very close. The kids enjoyed the privacy of bunkbeds. We were able to cook breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen. Beds and living room was very comfortable! Tidy, clean and oh so relaxing, had a awesome trip!

Ride or Relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Fries. Vicki and Roger are wonderful hosts who treat you like family. The apartment was very clean, had everything that we needed and the bed was very comfortable. An unexpected bonus was the storage unit under the apartment where we could keep our bikes. The location is perfect and right at the start of the New River Trail so we never had to bother with loading and unloading our bikes from our car. We also enjoyed our time on the river. It's a very short walk to the river's edge for fishing, cooling off or kayaking and he rental for tubes, canoes, kayaks and bikes is just down the street. Relaxing and listening to the river from the deck was our favorite way to start and end each day. Thank you Vicki and Rodger for the perfect place to stay. We hope to come again and bring friends.

Quiet Time on the River

  • 4 of 5

This place lives up to it's billing. Nice and quaint little apartment with everything you need. Downside, no cell service, but we found that nice to disconnect and when needed, we could use the Wifi.

We enjoyed our stay here very much! Its the prefect place for a family of four. The kids loved the bunk beds. Everything was super nice and clean. We loved being right on the river and beside the park. Lots to do within walking distance.
