Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We built the cabins with the hope of sharing the beauty of the area with others and hopefully use the income to help as a college fund for our children. My husband was raised on the Blue Ridge Parkway and felt that local rental cabins were needed for guests traveling through the area. My father-in-law lives next door to the cabins and is available most all of the time to help if needed, give directions, and enjoys meeting and talking with our guests. We have enjoyed meeting people, who we now call friends, from a variety of states. We have also had international visitors! I teach school as my 'day job', clean cabins on the side, and taxi my children to their many activities. We enjoy sharing our area with others! Biking on the New River Trail is a favorite of our family. We also love picnicking and hiking at Cumberland Knob. Saturday evening concerts at the Blue Ridge Music Center are always a treat! Some of our favorite places to eat include R.J.'s Pizza, Mt. Surf Seafood, County Line Café, and the Galax Smokehouse.
