About Becky Fritz

As many people who return to Blacksburg (either permanently or just for games) can relate to - I spent a lot of time visiting friends in the Foxridge and Oak Manor during my college years (back in the 90s!). I moved away after college and then back to Blacksburg in 2002 when a career opportunity presented with Virginia Tech. After living in a house for several years, I decided that a townhome within minutes of campus, schools and downtown was exactly the best place for me and my family. Although Oak Manor townhomes have been in the community for a long time, the location is amazing and the security and comfort of our neighborhood has made my townhome the perfect choice. Renovations in every room have made our home new and modern. I waited for just the right unit that has the pastoral view and is steps from the walking trails.

Becky Fritz purchased this townhome in 2014

What makes this townhome unique

This special townhome allows you to be super close to campus but also enjoy some of the best views VT and Blacksburg can offer.

This townhouse is perfect! Very conveniently located 2 miles from campus, but a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my daughters graduation and the owner (Becky) made sure every detail was taken care of including fresh flowers on the dining room table 😊 The beds are very comfortable, and with 4 BR and 3 full baths we had plenty of space. It also looks like it has been recently renovated so it's beautiful. We will stay here again when we come back for football games!

Could not have had a better stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! The location, the house, the home owner. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to enjoy Blacksburg or VTech. The house was newly renovated, super clean, close to campus, very comfortable for our group, and the owner was awesome to work with!

THE place to stay in Blacksburg!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Becky the owner, is an amazing host and I can't say enough of what an awesome job she did to make me and the five guests I had feel welcome. The house was excellent, was clean and had everything you'd need for a great trip/vacation. This was so much better than a hotel for a large group with plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms with comfortable options if you run out of beds. I can't recommend Becky's place enough and when I go back to Blacksburg, I won't hesitate to stay here and neither should you.

Perfect Home Away From Home in Blacksburg!!

  • 5 of 5

This 4 bedroom 3.5 bath town home was ideal for our family of eight's 3-night stay in Blacksburg for my son's May 2016 Virginia Tech graduation. We were very happy with the entire rental process and every aspect of our stay in the newly renovated, safe, clean home. The 'open concept' main level had plenty of space for 8-10 of us to cook, eat, drink, relax, and socialize. We also used the downstairs back patio with another table for 8, and spent some time enjoying the neighborhood and peaceful view out the front door of sheep (and one llama named Wizard) grazing. Relaxing as it is, the home is just off Price's Fork Road and just minutes away from the VT campus, Lane Stadium and downtown Blacksburg. We took Uber for under $10 (except when surge pricing hit at last call!). Blacksburg Transit also goes right through the neighborhood, though we did not take the bus ourselves.

The home was very clean, fresh and comfortable. Everything was as described or better. The kitchen had everything we needed for a few days of meals -- it's probably better equipped than my kitchen at home. The beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and plentiful. We had 2 official parking spaces, plus permission to use a neighbor's extra spot, the guest parking spot and ample street parking. Becky provided nice touches -- extra sheets and towels, throws in the living room, some storage space in the refrigerator, candles, etc. She left a printout of information about the house, the area and things to do. She was incredibly responsive to all correspondence from the time of my first inquiry to our departure. I would not hesitate to stay with her again. Our stay cost us less than it would have to house us all in a hotel during a peak time -- plus we had more space to ourselves and were able to enjoy meals at home.

Some hints for Virginia Tech graduation: University Commencement at Lane Stadium on Friday: traffic was not bad we headed out 1 hour in advance. We easily parked at Draper near Washington and walked a half mile or so to Lane. Traffic seemed to be coming up Main Street and 460 from the South -- so by coming down from Prices Fork it was a breeze. We had a second ceremony at Cassell at 8am Saturday. We got to the Lane Stadium parking lot via 460 South and breezed right in 30 minutes in advance. Both days were MUCH easier than I expected. The ceremonies were fantastic!! Go Hokies!

Convenient Location, Beautifully Decorated, and Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This place has been beautifully renovated and decorated. I had to remind myself that I was in a college town. Plenty of room for sleeping and hanging out, curb parking was abundant and easy, and the the view out of the front side of the house was amazing.
