Overview

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.

About Pam Kicklighter

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

Why Pam Kicklighter chose Todd

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Always a Great Time at Luger Haus

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Luger Haus four times during 2014 and each time we have been welcomed as if we were old friends. The house is clean, well maintained, and very accommodating. Pam and Warren are very gracious hosts. Luger and LK are there to give us a warm welcome also.

We especially enjoy bicycling on Railroad Grade Road. The road is ten miles of relatively flat road along the banks of the New River in one of the prettiest valleys around.

We plan to stay at Luger Haus in 2015 often. I would recommend Luger Haus for a quiet getaway with convenient access to the beautiful mountains of Ashe and Watauga counties.

Fantastic find in Todd

  • 5 of 5
We could not have found a more perfect place for our girls weekend than Luger Haus. Our hosts were fantastic and we were greeted by Luger himself as we arrived. The guest house was just right with all we needed. W e especially enjoyed the night sounds and waking to a beautiful view from the front porch in the mornings. Thanks for a great weekend!!

Owner's Response: Luger Haus works well for girls getaways but also a great central location for a guys (or gals) motorcycle weekend! 6 miles from the Blue Ridge parkway and numerous rides; between West Jefferson and Boone for shopping and not far from Blowing Rock and the Outlet center!! A trip on the parkway is a wonderful way to see the splendor of the fall leaf colors.

Wonderful weekend

  • of 5
Our weekend was a great get-a-way. The hosts we so welcoming and made our stay extra special. Everything we needed was there and the hosts provided extras - like fresh eggs straight from the chick! Lugar and the kitty also were very friendly. A beautiful view and access to the river for fishing and tubing. Definitely will be going back.

Owner's Response: Now that the NC Fish and Wildlife services are stocking the river in the spring and fall, the fishing has gotten even better! And the river is just at the end of the driveway. The fall weather is coming which is a great time for bicycling the nice, flat road and seeing Mother Nature do her magic with the changing of the leaves.

Owner's Response: And the bicycling miles are adding up! Railroad Grade Road is a great flat road for getting out on the bikes in the high country.

A great getaway.....

  • 5 of 5
This spot was perfect for my girlfriends' trip to go tubing! The hosts were lovely and allowed us to use the house beyond check out so we could come back and change after the tubing trip. The kitchen was well stocked and the rooms and bathrooms were large.

Owner's Response: And if the weather had been a little dryer, the "girls" can sit by the fire pit and roast marshmallows and watch fireflies and forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

Lugar House, off the beaten path, but well worth the trip!

  • 5 of 5
The owners of Lugar House (and especially Lugar himself) were very welcoming! Our kids enjoyed gathering eggs and watching the honey bees at work. The house was very clean and comfortable, with all the necessities taken care of. We only wish we could have stayed longer! We will definitely be back during better weather!
It was also great to find a place that was pet friendly and allowed for one night accomodations! We would definitely recommend this property to others looking for a place to stay!

Owner's Response: Sometimes, "off the beaten path" is just the place to be to relax and unwind! With the river at the end of the driveway and a great bicycling road there is enough to do if you want to but you can also enjoy the scenery while doing nothing.
