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!

Peaceful Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend in October 2016. The house was very cozy, comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well stocked although we weren't able to find a toaster. We brought our kayaks and spent the majority of our time on the river. There were two large canoes that we could've used with a variety of other river toys that would be perfect in the summer (not so much for our fall getaway). That part of the river is relatively calm and we had no issues getting around and fishing. My boyfriend ended up catching quite a few small mouth bass. The area is rather quiet with little traffic which is exactly what we were looking for. We spent one morning driving along the blue ridge parkway and found a nice trail to walk for a little extra adventure. Highly recommend stopping along the parkway and getting a glimpse of the views. All in all we had a great trip and I would definitely recommend this house.

Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

Overall a great weekend,

The weather cleared up and made for a better stay!

The property was easily located in this quaint little town. The river and mountains are

something to see! We especially enjoyed going to the Peaks of Otter a few miles down the road

Breathtaking views of the mountains and the surrounding areas! Enjoyed going canoeing and the swing bridge too!

Our host Lance was easy and friendly to talk too. Thanks for providing us with fire wood for the pit, it was nice to sit around at night and enjoyed the starry night sky. The home was clean and ready for us when we arrived. My only complaint is that we didn't have much as for cookware and serving bowls, I do understand that these items get easily abused by guests but a simple upgrade would be nice for people that like to cook.

We made due with what was provided and didn't let this take away from our stay.. I still made some great dishes to eat for my family and friends to enjoy! We totally recommend this place and would come again.

Thanks for having us.
