Our mini vacation in Fries, VA

My husband, my 10 yr old and her bff and I vacationed at Misty River Retreat. It was a wonderful 4 days of relaxation and fun. There are plenty of things to do in the area, or for that matter, at the house! The house sits just a few yards from the New River. The children were enthralled with the two playhouses on the property. Special touches were evident, a small couch in one of the houses, flowers in the flower boxes and both were situated near the lovely creek on the property. Many toys were around both of the playhouses.
The main house was full of extra touches- the master was done tastefully in white,black and lavender. It has a large sliding glass door and screen with a small balcony for early morning coffee. There is also a smaller bedroom on the main floor. The lower floor is especially geared towards children with several couches, a double bed and many books and games. The main level has a large area with a mega table for family meals and times. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything including a washer and dryer. It does not have a dishwasher.
The best part of the property is the peacefulness and tranquility. The back yard is the perfect place for reading a book in the hammocks,. meals at the picnic table, roasting smores in the fire pit or just casting from the water's edge. The house also has an outdoor room with a gas grill, outdoor furniture and awesome views.
We will definitely be back with our college age kids. There is a volleyball court, the New River Trail, fishing in a plethora of places, tubing, kayaking and attending one of Grayson County's blue grass festivals or jams. This property has a little bit of peace that every age needs.
Owner's Response: We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your future visit! Thanks for pointing out the need for a dishwasher. We just had a brand new one installed. We also wanted to mention that the downstairs bed is a queen size.
