Meadows of Dan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Meadows of Dan: remote, peaceful and beautiful

What a wonderful home we were able to enjoy while visiting the Meadows of Dan area. It totally suited the needs of the 3 couples that met at this location for a week's long vacation. The home is in a beautiful setting and was large enough that we were not stepping on each other. The remote location with it's winding, stone roads made site seeing a bit difficult, but the quality time in the home more than made up for it. The owners were readily available for any questions. GREAT, GREAT property.

This was one great house! We enjoyed it greatly. Felt right at home. It is a little ways away from any big town, however Meadows of Dan was a great little town. The view is one of the best! Better than any overlook on the "Blue Ridge Parkway", which is just minutes from the house.

If your in to Wine/Winery's....your in for a treat, there are several in the area. Most offer free wine tasting and tours. If you have never been, I recommend it.

Also lovely shops in Floyd , Stuart and Martinsville. We also went as far as Roanoke and Galax.

I hope to return to visit again. Cindy Theilacker

We just spent a relaxing Thanksgiving holiday in this wonderful slice of heaven. We have stayed in this property several times before and have always found it to be perfect. The house itself is immaculate and comfortable- large enough for everyone to have their own space. The views were spectacular, we got a light dusting of snow when we arrived, so the mountains were sparkling white. We enjoyed lunch and wine tastings at nearby Chateau Morissette, hiking around the property and beyond, and dancing at the Floyd Country Store on Friday night (a highly recommended activity, truly a unique and special experience).

In terms of the service we received from the owners, we could not have been more pleased. The owners went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time, even sending someone out to replace a broken part on the fireplace so we could enjoy it during our stay. They genuinely took an interest in making sure our experience was a good one.

So, while we were sad to be leaving this beautiful place, we have already started planning our next visit. Truly a treat- highly recommend to anyone considering a visit to the Meadows of Dan.

Our trip was fantastic for so many reasons. The area is stunning and this house....oh this house! Extremely comfortable with absolutely incredible views. And thanks to Bill's detailed instructions about the house and the area, we truly were able to just relax and take it all in for several days. Thank you so much! I do hope to return for another visit to this wonderful place very soon.

We rented this extremely spacious, modern house for the Labor Day weekend to catch up with distant family and local friends. The house made the entire weekend perfect! While remote in feel, the property was close to many local attractions--although the incredible views (30+ miles!) were stunning and were tough to break away from. The property owner, Bill, made us feel extremely welcome, and offered wonderful suggestions for local restaurants and things to do. We really didn't want to leave!!!
