About Shannon Payne
We're Scott & Shannon and we both grew up in the wonderful small town of Fries. Although time and circumstance moved us away, we have always made sure to come home as often as possible to our beloved Blue Ridge Mountains.
Shannon Payne purchased this house in 2009
Why Shannon Payne chose Fries
We purchased River Mist Retreat from family in 2009 so that we would have a place of our own to entertain family and friends during our visits home. We have a special connection to this property as we shared many picnics here while we were dating.
What makes this house unique
The property is truly a relaxing retreat. It's secluded with enough ammenities to keep you occupied (hammocks, a firepit, horse shoes, volley ball, playhouses, the creek, and the river). The head of the New River Trail in downtown Fries is five minutes from our property. As an old railroad line, the terrain of the New River Trail is gently sloped without hills, making it perfect for visitors off all ages to hike, bike, and ride horseback. For adventure seekers, canoes, kayaks, and tubes can be rented from Riverside Outfitters or Blue Cat on the New. Several guests have enjoyed a four hour float from the public boat landing at Riverside on Route 94 back to River Mist Retreat.
We hope that our guests enjoy Misty River Retreat as much as we do and create memories to treasure!
