PEACEFUL RETREAT IN THE MOUNTAINS ON NEW RIVER IN TODD, NC

Todd House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Luger Haus Inn - not quite a B&B but a little more than a Vacation Rental!

Luger Haus offers accommodations in our 3 bedroom, 2 bath Guest House with full kitchen, dining and living room facilities, and a 1-bedroom 1 bath apartment with full kitchen for short term rentals. Located directly on the south fork of the New river, enjoy the view from the front porch, bicycle on Railroad Grade Road, tube, kayak or fish the New River or just relax in the mountains of Todd.

Three bedroom, 2 bath house has a large master bedroom and bath downstairs with kitchen and living area and 2 bedrooms and shared bath on second floor. Three queen size beds plus a full size roll-away bed in one of the upstairs bedrooms. An additional single roll-away can be added for a minimal fee.

'Barn Apartment' is a 1-bedroom, 1 bath, full kitchen and living area for a quiet retreat. This unit has a queen bed with a single roll-away available. Maximum occupancy is 2 adults/2 children.

Options for rental of all units for a fun family or group getaway are also available.

Railroad Grade Road is a nice, flat bicycling road if you want to bike but do not want to tackle the hills of the High Country.

Downtown Todd is small but offers a historical walking tour, the Todd Mercantile, General Store and Rivergirl Fishing (fishing, kayaking, tubing and bicycle rentals). Riverside Restaurant is 2.5 miles away and offers B, L, and D.

Luger Haus is named for our friendly German Sheperd Luger who will greet you with his favorite toys for a play session in the front yard. His kitty, LK (Luger's Kitty) also known as Lucky, will also come to join the activities at his leisure. Children can feed the chickens and collect eggs.

In October, the apple trees are full of fruit for your enjoyment.

We are located 12 miles from Boone and 14 miles from West Jefferson. Golf is available in both towns as are shopping, antique stores, art galleries, mountain biking and numerous other activities to keep you busy.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is only 8 miles away and offers a beautiful drive with views and outlooks of the mountains. Grandfather Mountain is also not far and a wonderful place to hike during your stay.

After your days out and about, retreat back to Luger Haus to watch the sunset over the mountains, catch fireflies, watch the deer and just relax and rejuvinate.

Keywords: 6-acre farm, peaceful mountain views, on the South Fork of the New River, biking, fishing, kayaking, located 2 miles from downtown Todd and 8 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway in northwest NC.

Warren, Pam and Luger and LK are your hosts at the Luger Haus. We purchased this home in 2006 after finding the NC High Country on a vacation in 2001. We are retired engineers from NASA and now enjoy country living in the mountains during the summers and retreat to warm Florida in winter. Here in Todd, we have chickens, an herb garden, a blueberry patch, an inherited apple orchard, and plant a vegetable garden each summer.

Luger, our German Sheperd, is also our host - he loves children and other dogs, loves to hike and play with his toys, and especially play with visitors - he truly believes that the only reason people come to his house is to play with him!!

Pam Kicklighter purchased this house in 2006

We found the 'High Country' in 2001 after traveling the country during a severely hot summer - when we camped in Boone, in August, we had to turn on the heat at night as it was so cool! We decided to retire to this area. After searching for the perfect spot, we found Todd - with easy access to major roads, the towns of Boone and West Jefferson nearby - we fell in love with the peace and quiet of Todd.

From Luger Haus, you can walk to the end of the driveway and bike on Railroad Grade Road, fish or kayak or tube on the river, or just sit on the front porch with a cup of coffee and watch the river.

We had the most wonderful family weekend here. Everything was provided, pots, pans, dishes, washer,dryer, right down to tissues in very room and even toothpicks. The owners do an excellent job
of thinking of every little detail, and they are super nice people and make you feel so welcome and at home.The fall foilage was beautiful, and the New River is just across the road, if you want to go fishing. We are really looking forward to going
back again in the spring.

Owner's Response: We love seeing multi-generation family groups coming to Luger Haus where there is something for everyone! And yes, we try to provide everything but your toothbrush (and we do have extras of those just in case)! And once you have been here, you are part of Luger's extended family forever.

The most peaceful, amazing and utterly perfect escape in the mountains! Pam, Warren, Luger , kitty and the chickens were sooo hospitable! We stayed in the apartment for my birthday getaway and loved it so much we're going back next month to rent the house with the moms and our daughter! The scenery is simply breathtaking and is perfectly apart from the business of Boone and Banner Elk. The sound of the New River at night and dawn make you appreciate how blessed we really are! Thank you for making my birthday weekend perfect!!!

Owner's Response: We love our peaceful spot in the mountains - we are far enough away from the "big towns" to be nice and quiet yet close enough to go into town for other activities! Once you visit the area, you will want to return!

Excellent Location, Excellent Hosts, Excellent Accommodations, Relaxing time with plenty of other things to do when you wanted to get out and about. Six deer seen in the morning grazing by the house. My wife enjoyed Lugar and Lucky but they did not make a pest of themselves. High recommendations for others to go and enjoy the Lugar Haus.

Owner's Response: For a small town, Todd does have a lot to do - walk or bicycle Railroad Grade road (yes, its flat!), tube or kayak down the South Fork of the New River with River Girl Fishing, have a hot, fresh cinnamon bun at the Todd Mercantile, listen to music at Cook Park or just relax and watch the deer on the porch! And of course, pet Luger and Lucky!

What's NOT to Love?!

The title says it all! We loved everything about our stay at the Luger Haus Inn. We call our planned events with our daughters "Family Fun Day" and this was a weekend of Family Fun!

Although the inn is described well in the listing, it still far exceeded our expectations. The little touches that made life in the kitchen easier like paper towels, dishwashing liquid, aluminum foil, coffee and filters were unexpected but so welcome since I hadn't even thought to taking those things! I didn't cook a lot but found everything I needed right at hand. The kitchen, just like all of the other rooms, was clean, tidy and well designed with convenience in mind.

Pam and Warren gave us accurate directions and tips on local places to eat. Although we didn't bring our dog, we loved the layout of the fenced yard in case we had. Of course, being the pet lovers that we are, we were all thrilled to have the company of Luger and LK during our stay. They made us feel right at home!

I would recommend the Luger Haus Inn with no reservation at all! It's a wonderful place to stay and a super value for the money. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: As a coffee drinker, I always want coffee to be available! All you really need to bring is your toothbrush and any food you want to prepare or visit the neighboring eateries! Pastries from the Todd Mercantile and coffee and the view of the river - a great way to get away from it all!
