Everything Was Great!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well-maintained, the house clean, neat, well laid out and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked (didn't need a thing), and very open and roomy. Great location for a quiet, relaxing, family vacation, and our dogs just loved it. Buchanan is wonderful. If you like small town, country life for a week, this place is for you. Natural Bridge State Park is only minutes away, as is the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is no grocery store within 20 miles; however, can get some staples at the Family Dollar and Dollar General in town. OK for us, but might not be for others. Also, there are two diners where you can get grilled food, ice cream, and milk shakes. Bottom line: we definitely want to come back.

Great location. clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Clarks house. They are friendly and very accommodating. The stretch of river both above and below the house offer excellent fishing. Had a great time and plan on returning again next year.

Beautiful, Peaceful, River Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while visiting our son at VMI. It is a beautiful spot. The photos don't do it justice. Roomy and well-stocked. We had coffee on the deck as we watched the river roll by and all the wildlife. The owner was very gracious and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful getaway

  • 4 of 5

Thanks to the owners of the Waterfront Home on the James River for a wonderful few days on the river. The location is really great, right on the James River and so much to do in the area. The home was very comfortable for us and our two dogs. We enjoyed our stay!
