I grew up in this country cottage and spent many wonderful years in the area. I moved from the area when I married and then my children spent many wonderful years visiting their grandparents on this property. My brothers and I wanted to keep a home place, but still have the property used and enjoyed by others.
Owner/Manager purchased this House in 2012
Why Owner/Manager chose Newport
This is a very special property with many memories and always a place to get a way from it all, but so close to major functions in the local college towns. It also allows a group to stay with their pets with large fenced in back yard, while being the opposite direction of traffic.
What makes this House unique
The beautiful view of the mountains, the peaceful sounds of the Sinking Creek, the coziness of the living room and game room, the large fenced in back yard.

Beautiful valley getaway!
A great cabin getaway from busy Virginia Tech. The cabin is clean & very well stocked with everything you could need. The beds are comfortable & the surrounding countryside is breathtaking. We loved sitting in the sunroom & watching the cows roam. The stream was a huge bonus for my avid fly fishermen. Thank you for sharing your beautiful valley with us.
Nice farm house
Enjoyed our stay...will stay again.
Like a visit to Grandma!
We loved it! Kitchen was clean and FULLY stocked with many little extras, all of which were located exactly where our grandmothers would have stored them. The house and grounds were kept perfectly. We really did not want for anything. Excellent value as well.
Perfect for a football weekend at VT. Just the right distance (15-20 minutes) from Blacksburg to experience the best of campus life and mountain solitude. The setting and scenery were great for walking, reminiscing with family and friends, and enjoying the babbling brook. We only wish we could have stayed a week or more. We will be back!
Very relaxing and perfect for visiting VT !
This was the perfect home for our family! We enjoyed eating outside at the table watching the sunset and having a fire pit night roasting marshmallows! Our cadet freshman at Tech really enjoyed getting away and the drive to campus was a very easy 15 minute trip! Definitely would come back.
Great place, will stay there again!
Peaceful and quiet with a great back yard for the dogs, close to hiking and Blacksburg!
Great house in the country! Perfect weekend!
Beautiful place in the country! Perfect for a weekend getaway! Beds were comfy, kitchen had everything we needed! Convenient to Blacksburg. We would absolutely stay again. Excellent communication with the owners!
