Why Johnsie Beck and Cindy Nicholson chose Virginia

Burke's Garden is my "hometown." When my husband and I moved our family back to Virginia in 2001, we moved into the renovated Parsonage. We made a few changes over the years, but the core of the house remains just as it was built around 1900. In 2014, we moved next door to my parents' home. Now we're very excited to share this beautiful home with guests who, we hope, will enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this one of a kind setting.

Super fun baseball getaway with friends!

  • 5 of 5

We were in the Bluefield area for the VA State Little League Baseball tournament. Four families grouped together to rent the Parsonage & the Guest House for the long weekend, and it could not have been better! Our large group had plenty of space, both inside and out, to enjoy each other and the beauty surrounding us. We even hosted an outdoor team party in the backyard which was an amazing place to gather and play! Burkes Garden is quite a little gem...none of us had been there before, but we all left in awe of the breath taking views and welcoming community. The houses are both fully equipped - kitchen utensils and supplies, soaps, linens, towels, cooling fans and games...it was so nice to not have to pack everything from home! Johnsie and Cindy were wonderful to work with in every way! The General Store is just down the street which was a great convenience for snacks and drinks. We sure hope to be back one day, but what priceless memories to cherish until we do! :)

Wonderful location for our family.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the home and it was big enough for our 3 families to have their own space. The owners were so nice and friendly. Would recommend finding a way to air condition the house, as staying there much past mid June may be uncomfortable.

Like a Dream!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful stay at The Parsonage! The house is very special, with beautiful furniture, quilts, doll-house, hand-crafted glass ornaments, and lots of BOOKs! It feels homey, not fussy or imposing. And it is immaculately clean. The kitchen is large and very well stocked with everything necessary for cooking. I even roasted a turkey breast in a big roasting pan that was on a top shelf.

We can't say enough about the kindness that Cindy (one of the owners) showed to us during our visit. She went above and beyond to help us in every way, from making contact with people so that we could visit our ancestor's home, to opening the nearby church so that we could look at the grave registry. I could go on and on. Every aspect of our trip was a delight.

Relaxing at the Parsonage in a Pastoral Setting - Burke's Garden, Virginia

  • 5 of 5

With my college roommate and our wives, we arrived in Burke's Garden, VA to spend three week nights at the Parsonage. We soon decided that three nights wasn't going to be long enough. The house was very clean and had all the basic necessities we would need. A fully equipped modern eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms and a sitting room upstairs and two bedrooms down, and two walk-in showers, one up and one down made us very pleased with our accommodations. Looking across the road from the front porch or out the huge kitchen window and the rear patio, we had vistas of pastures with cattle, sheep, and horses, and mountains in the distance. Just down the road live Joe and Elizabeth Schrock and children on their Amish family farm. They provided us with several delicious meals; Joe took us on a two hour wagon ride around much of the valley; and we even got to meet their children and watch the milking of their milk cow. Whether you ride or drive slowly through the valley, you constantly have pastoral views that belong in a calendar. We carefully drove up the mountain to the south to see the Appalachian Trail and go to the overlook to view almost the entire valley. There is a grocery store and restaurants about 25 minutes away in Tazewell, and the local Burke's Garden general store will soon reopen with food, bulk food, and even bakery items and sandwich's.

If you enjoy scenery, gorgeous farms, good books, walking or hiking, a bit of TV watching and wonderful friendly owners (Cindy Nicholson next door) and neighbors, then the Parsonage and Burke's Garden is perfect for you. When you listen carefully, you only hear the farm animals in the distance and rushing water when you're near a stream. There's no better place to renew and restore your spirit than the Parsonage in Burke's Garden, Virginia.

Signed,

A Grumpy Old Man (until I stayed at the Parsonage!)

Excellent

We stayed in the little house next to the Parsonage and it was perfect for the three of us. The house is clean and well supplied. The owners were wonderful and always available. Wonderful house in a wonderful place.
