Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Pictures coming soon of newly remodeled great room. Freshly painted from floor to 30 ft. ceiling, quartzite counter tops and backsplash, tiled kitchen and dinning room, expanded kitchen, new bar area as well as finishing touches like larger kitchen, induction stove, new windows, fans and updated lighting. Pantry moved into kitchen and old pantry converted to full bath. All work done by Fred Brady who designed and built Laurel Point Cottage VRBO.com/708246. Like the scenery my pictures won't do it justice.

LAUREL POINT VILLA

A perfect getaway in beautiful Meadows of Dan, Virginia. The 4000 square feet home features 3 large bedrooms with privacy, one king, one queen and two doubles, each with full private bath and tub, as well as door to the deck. It's just like having three master bedrooms. Need even more room. Combine VRBO.com/708246 which is next door. It adds a two bedrooms and two bath cottage with similar long range views, two decks, chef designed kitchen, radiant floor heat and other amenities.

The 1400 square feet great room has gas fireplace and huge windows to enjoy the 75 mile views from it's ridge location. Full kitchen features new refrigerator, Jenn-Air stove, coffee maker, dishwasher and microwave. You can play CD's and DVD's on the Bose 3.2.1 entertainment system.

House is located near North Carolina - Virginia border about 4 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. For those interested in wine and viticulture, Chateau Morrisette, Virginia's largest winery, and Villa Appalachia are within five miles of the property. Chateau Morrisette features musical festival throughout the summer, as well as free Sunday concerts on the grounds. No trip would be complete without a Friday night in Floyd. The Country Store is alive with flat footing and bluegrass bands form in the alleys and on corners. It is a must see.

Experience nature's gradeur from the expansive deck with it's long views. Spring is showy with Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron, summer abounds with the flowery garden and aviary acrobatics and fall is spectacular as color drifts down the mountains side.

Get out in nature with easy walks from the Parkway like Smart View or stroll down the well worn path beside in Rock Castle Gorge. An exhilarating hike to Buffalo Mountain (once owned by the Robet E. and Harry Lighthorse Lee's family) can be made on a well graded trail leading to the almost 4000 foot peak and expansive 360 degree view.

Visit Fairy Stone Lake and experience the only place to find the mystical Fairy Stone or sink your hook in the Keibler Valley for mountain trout. Bike the Virginia Creeper Trail, Galax Trail or Blue Ridge Parkway. Raft the Dan River and experience the Zip Line nearby. This area has it all.

Golfers, take a swing at Primland's Highland Course rated by Golf Digest as the best new public course in 2006. Add Olde Mills Golf Resort and Great Oaks in Floyd, all within 15 miles of the house.

About Bill Day

We're a North Carolina guy and a Kentucky girl who lives in Florida and has a beautiful home in Virginia. And yes, I have done the impossible and converted a Kentucky girl to a Tar Heel basketball fan.

Bill Day purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill Day chose Meadows of Dan

While dating, we visited a Christmas Tree farm in Meadows of Dan and loved it. We decided to get married there and in looking for a minister, we also looked for land. We wanted long range views and finally found a lot in Edgeview Estates just off Belcher Mountain Road.

In 2005, I was hating my job and decided to try one more backpacking trip. Went to the Smokies and came out with a couple of days left on my vacation. I decided to go up to our lot and take a sunrise picture that I could put in my office to keep my spirits up. I drove in early one morning and set up the tripod and waited for the sun. It was okay, but not a trophy shot. Packed everything up and headed back up Belcher mountain. Between my comings and goings, someone had put a for sale sign in front of Laurel Point.

I met the owners at the house and it was a glorious day. I think I could see Canada. I was known as a fierce negotiator but I was putty in their hands. I knew I had to have that house. They came down a little and I offered them my sweaty handshake. It takes nerves to buy a house without your new bride having seen it. Obviously all is well that ends well.

We decided that the worst thing we could do with the house is just let it sit there. We're 11 hours away and are lucky to visit 2 or 3 times a year. So far we have had excellent guests and feel good about sharing our house.

Hope you come and visit. It's beautiful during the spring, cool in the summer and spectacular in the fall. Notice I didn't mention winter. A little too cool for this Tar Heel converted Floridian.

What makes this house unique

Backpacked for over 30 years and the view from the deck is in my top five favorites in the Southern Appalachians .

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Guest Book: Bill and Mary, your dream house is fantastic. The place has

wonderful amenities and rooms that are so spacious and sereene - and so

comfortable. We loved the deck and the spectacular view. I'd come back any

time of year knowing it would be beautiful. We did the local sites. "Oddfellas"

on a Friday night is a must. Thanks so much. We hope to return. (I shall

return). P.S. When I first got here I slept dreaming the usual mixed-up, lost,

frenetic dreams. After a few serene days and nights I dreamt sweet, happy

dreams.

Gorgeous views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 4 days. We had 2 days with a view and 2 days of complete “whiteness”....we were in the clouds! The house has everything you will need. With good weather, you won’t want to leave. Each bedroom (3) has its own bathroom and are large. There is ample seating outside on the deck (which is where you will want to be!), but no table. We played cards inside at the dining room table. The living/dining room/kitchen are beautiful...a wall of windows. The cottage is very close next door, but well hidden with trees. This place is all about the view! Can’t be beat.

Beyond words

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot adequately describe how beautiful the house and the setting are! We had everything we needed for our stay. The views were jaw dropping. Bill was beyond helpful, and extremely responsive. We were in town for a wedding, and now plan to return, whether there is an event or not!

Incredible

  • 5 of 5

So relaxing. Everyone was off the grid for the week and we loved it. Breath taking view, included a meteor shower, F-18 flew up the valley, hawks, bats at night, really incredible. Not to mention being surrounded by beautiful trees and all the clear pure oxygen you can breath.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Tastefully decorated with modern updated kitchen and spacious bedrooms. Unbelievable forever views from the great room, bedrooms and the expansive deck. Almost too good to be true. We have returned again and again. We never tire of this unique vacation rental. Bill and Mary, the proprietors, are a pleasure with which to work.

Amazing retreat equal to the amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My family has returned to this mountain vacation home several times now, partly because of the stunning view, and partly because of the amazing hospitality the owner extends to his guests. He makes sure we have all the necessary information we could possible want or need, and the home is simply magnificent. For us, in our busy lives, it has truly become a retreat that we look forward to repeating each year.
