Giles County is a place filled with natural beauty, fresh waters, abundant wildlife and fish, hiking trails, canoe liverys, suited for the active and also for those wanting to be close to nature and enjoy peace and quiet time. Yet this is only 8 miles from the Virginia Tech campus and Blacksburg, the adjoining small quaint college town with unique shops and dining experiences.
we love it here because of the quaintness of country and college atmospheres so interwined yet with distance, a place to relax and enjoy and a place to be adventuresome whenever the mood strikes
We can't thank you enough for the wonderful accommodations and hospitality. This cabin and property is better than we could have imagined. Every amenity is covered and the natural beauty is beyond compare.
Thank you for making us feel very welcomed and we look forward to the opportunity to return. Five stars
My husband and I stayed this past weekend to visit our son at Virginia Tech who is in the Corps of Cadets. A friend from VT recommended we try Buck Lair Cabin instead of our usual hotel stay and we cannot thank her enough. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with fresh pastries on the kitchen table, soft drinks and farm fresh milk in the fridge. The place is just gorgeous from the grounds to the front and back porches to the interior. We highly recommend Buck Lair to anyone who would like to get away from the usual hotel stay to enjoy the outdoors along with the conveniences of home. We enjoyed our peaceful and relaxing weekend and would like to thank Ruth for her hospitality.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Buck Lair Cabin. We had a busy weekend with our sons New Student Orientation at VCOM. Wish we'd had time to relax. This would be the perfect place to do so. We will definite be back.
Wow... I am picky and I've rented many homes, condos, apartments, etc... over the years. This is possibly my all-time fave. This cabin is so cozy, clean & beautifully decorated, I truly felt as comfortable as I do at home. This is not the typical vacation rental, so much love goes into this home. What a wonderful place.
This cabin was such a wonderful find! We picked this cabin as it was so close to Blacksburg, and made it so easy to visit with our son at Virginia Tech. The cabin was the perfect size for the 5 adults and 1 child we had had in our group. It is beautifully decorated, and truly makes you feel so relaxed and at home while you stay. Ruth had even left pastries, and farm fresh milk, and the fridge was stocked with water and sodas. Firewood was ready to use for the beautiful wood burning stove. Such a warm welcome. The home has all you would need for cooking a nice meal! We had such a wonderful time at Buck Lair and we are hoping to return soon! We look forward to enjoying the porches, picnic area by the stream and pond during warmer weather. A great place to stay and only about 8 miles outside of Blacksburg.
A wonderful, clean cabin with everything you could ask for! Beds are comfortable, woodstove cozy, and the entire cabin is very tastefully decorated! Owners are great to work with. We will certainly consider staying here again.
Ruth is excellent to work with and this cabin in Giles is a great find. It is lovely, clean, well maintained. The frig was stocked with basics for coffee, water, and some soft drinks. The kitchen was nicely outfitted to make cooking easy. The wood burning stove even comes with instructions and there was cut wood on the large back porch - they have all bases covered.
