About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Custom built home on 7 very private acres with beautiful mountain views you can enjoy from the huge (10' x 60') covered front porch. This property backs up to over 100 undeveloped acres of private land.
The main floor has a very large master suite with a king size bed. Washer and Dryer in walk in master closet for your convenience. Master bath has a huge jet tub and an over sized tile shower with two shower heads. Upstairs there is an office space in the landing and two additional bedrooms each with their own private bath. Large open floor plan with stone fireplace in the great room. Beautiful 'cooks kitchen' open to the sun room and great room. Dining area is open to the great room as well. Hardwood floors throughout. Very tastefully furnished and decorated. This is my personal home and I have everything you need including linens & towels, all kitchen needs, even extra table settings for more formal dining. There are several extra mattresses that can go in the bedrooms or the upstairs landing for additional guests.

I do not allow 'house parties' but my property is perfect for large family gatherings such as weddings, graduations, family reunions...There is ample parking as well.
We are only 2 miles off South Main Street in Blacksburg and less than 4 miles to Virginia Tech's Lane Stadium but you will feel like you are way out in the country. This home is perfect for visits to the New River Valley and Virginia Tech. You get the best of both worlds- close to everything but a true feel of being in the mountains. This home was featured in the New River Magazine. I have a separate apartment in the lower level with separate parking and access. I occasionally have tenants there and I use it myself when I have guests.
Well behaved pets are welcome. I will have my dogs (three Newfoundlands an 8 lb Yorkie mix and a Hound- long story) with me wherever I am and our outdoor cats will be around but will not come inside during your stay. NOTE- no cats have been in the house since early 2015 however the dogs are in with me whenever I am here. I only say this to forewarn anyone who may have an extreme cat allergy- the house is meticulously cleaned for every guest so this is not an issue for anyone except the extremely allergic (better safe than sorry). Some special events require a minimum 2-3 night stay and rates will vary for those weekends as well. We have had several long term tenants and we would be happy to discuss your needs and see if we can come to an agreement. Feel free to send a note describing your needs and I will work with you the best I can.
NOTE- SINCE THIS IS MY PERSONAL HOME AND NOT JUST AN INVESTMENT/ RENTAL HOME, I DO NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS MORE THAN 10-12 MONTHS OUT.
ALSO- ALL VT HOME FOOTBALL GAMES FOR 2016 AND 2017 ARE ALREADY RESERVED. VT GRADUATION FOR 2017 IS ALREADY BOOKED .I GET MANY REQUESTS FOR FUTURE VT GRADUATIONS AND I ALREADY HAVE A WAITING LIST FOR 2018 VT GRADUATION. THESE ARE WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE IS A 3 NIGHT MINIMUM WITH CURRENT RATES FOR THOSE 3 NIGHTS OF $1350/ NIGHT. IF INTERESTED KNOWING THAT RATE ESTIMATE I WILL BE HAPPY TO ADD YOU TO THE LIST..

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Hello and welcome to Nellies Cave Lodge. This home was built in 2003 on 7 acres that I purchased several years earlier. I have been a real estate agent in the area for the last 20 years. In the summer of 2013 I purchased Windrush Blueberry Farm about 20 minutes away in Newport and small farming is my passion. I now have 5 dogs (three Newfoundlands and an 8lb Yorkie mix and a hound) and several outside cats . All well behaved pets are welcome andI will be happy to discuss any special needs you may have for them during your stay. My dogs will of course be with me wherever I am but the cats will be around somewhere- most likely on the front porch or the back deck or in and out of the lower level of the house (basement and drive under garage) that is not part of the rental space. They will not be allowed inside the rental space during your stay. Please contact me with any questions and I look forward to making your stay enjoyable.

Why the Owner Chose Blacksburg, VA, USA:
This property is the best Blacksburg has to offer. Close to everything yet very private with wonderful mountain views. We are only 2 miles off South Main Street and 4 miles from Lane Stadium on VT Campus but you feel like you are way out in the country.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is ample parking and I do allow well behaved dogs. I can provide a very large dog crate if necessary.
