1890's House Near Shawnee Lake

Blacksburg, VA

Beautiful house close to Shawnee and Bedford

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Frank's house. He was very helpful and everything was set up perfectly. We went to the lake at Shawnee State Park a lot, which is less than a five minute drive away, and it's very close to Bedford, too. It was clean, quiet, and spacious. Perfect for us and our young son. Thank you for everything, Frank! We hope to come back next year.

Summer Time Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

For yet another trip to the Schellsburg House, we chose August 2012. Once again, what an enjoyable visit! Frank had really updated the dvds, which the kids always look forward to. We made many home cooked meals and enjoyed the large yard to play ball and have some "sparklers" fun. It is just so nice knowing that the house is available for that little escape you need from everyday life. Thanks Frank :)

Second Time Around :)

  • 5 of 5

One month after our first visit to the Schellsburg House, we made another visit. As usual, we felt welcome from the moment we walked in the door. Felt just like home the second time around :) More dvd's were added for guests to use including kid's dvds. Frank also dropped off some kid's puzzles for our little ones which they appreciated very much :) The kitchen is always very stocked with everything we need to make a wonderful home cooked meal or two. Thanks again Frank!

A Relaxing Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. An 1890's victorian home with a country and antique design. Titled "Maxines" after the original owner, the inside has everything you would need; kitchenware, plenty of closet space, toys for the kids, computer, dvd's, washer/dryer, dishwasher and more! The yard is large enough for the kids to play and there is even a crochet set in the front closet! The owner, Frank is very hospitable, even providing us with wood for a bonfire :) Brochures are handy in the house for sites out and about. Come visit the house!!!
