Wedding for Nephew

  • 5 of 5

10/14 to 10/17/16 Great house to enjoy a vacation at. Had everything we needed and more. Great location and the owner was superb. Really enjoyed the porch. Large rooms, great wood burning stove with plenty of firewood. Close to so may beautiful sights. We were there for a wedding so sightseeing was limited but hope to come back for a week in the future. Leaves were beautiful. Other family had the house next door so it was great to all be so close together. Have never been disapointed with HomeAway. Booked several homes through them!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time and the house was perfect. It was beautiful and very clean. We initially planned on going to the Homestead for meals but the house had everything so we ended up cooking a lot and had so much more time with family. Pat was great to work with and helped us navigate finding all the best parts of the area. We highly recommend!

A Beautiful Paradise!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hemlock cottage was a nice surprise. The countryside with the mountains has breathtaking locations. The overlooks have trees as far as you can see. It is a location, time has forgotten. We hiked up mountains, drove through amazing forests and shopped at antique stores.

The cottage was clean and the bed were comfortable. I love watching birds in the morning. It had all the supplies for cooking and cleaning up day to day messes. Our family had a wonderful time at Natural Bridge. I would stay again.

The cottage was homey and had all the bells and whistles that anyone would want.

  • 3 of 5

The whole experience was marred when VRBO gave us the wrong address. We spent a couple of hours in panic but , after spending time in a house we "thought" was the right one, we finally found the address aided by help from daughter long distance.

Beautiful clean hidden gem !

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed there for a week this place is beautiful it's a hidden gem in the middle of the woods ! The owner was great and helpful when we were trying to find certain places ! The house is enormous with lots of sleeping in the basement ! Every morning we would get all meet for coffee and sit on the deck and listen to the birds and watch the sun come up over the mountain just beautiful ! I would recommend this to any family that is looking for a getaway with your children that's relaxing beautiful and fun ! We enjoyed the leaks and the pool as well as the Virginia safari ! If you have kids you must go to the Safari it was a great experience ! The house has tons of brochures for fun things to do around the area and I added the brochure for the Virginia safari ! I can't say thank you enough for having us and allowing us to stay we will be there again next year if not sooner ! We were going to extend our stay another three days but it was already booked I could've stayed there forever !
