This is a beautiful, mesmerizing setting. The cabin is perfectly situated on the hillside.

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful place to go for a small family getaway! The home is well stocked with all appliances, cookware, glassware, linens, etc. that is needed! We cooked a very bountiful Thanksgiving meal and had everything we needed. Dr. Mitchell was a pleasure to work with! He was very available to answer all of our questions beforehand. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area and we were so happy that our family pet was a welcomed guest! Yes...the creek was his favorite spot! "Journeys End" is a wonderful place to get away from it all!!

A truly outstanding mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Journey's Retreat, and I can say without a doubt that it's one of the very nicest places we've ever rented. Sometimes cabin rentals are not as good as expected, but this cabin was much BETTER than we expected, and we had very high expectations. So often rentals show signs of wear, but Journey's Retreat looked like we were the first people who'd ever stayed there. Everything was in excellent condition, and the cabin is furnished like an extremely nice home. The cabin owner was such a pleasure to deal with, and he went well out of his way to assist us with our reservations and arrangements.

When we look for a mountain rental, peace, quiet and solitude are extremely important to us. We certainly found that at Journey's Retreat. It's one of the most peaceful and quiet places we've ever rented. And the views from the deck are just outstanding. Hillsville, VA is only a short drive away, and it's a great little town for grocery shopping or any other kind of shopping you'd like to do. And the Blue Ridge Parkway (which we always love) is only about 30 minutes from the cabin. But if you don't need shopping or touring the countryside (which is great), then Journey's Retreat is a wonderful place to just hang out and enjoy the mountain scenery. If I could give this cabin 6 or 7 stars, I would easily do it. I thank the cabin owners for their gracious hospitality, and thank them for having such a wonderful place for us to spend our vacation. I certainly hope we can return very soon!

Beautiful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 4 night stay at Journey's Retreat. It was more beautiful than imagined, with every amenity provided. From a well-stocked, gourmet kitchen, to beautifully designed living quarters, every detail in this home has been thoughtfully executed to provide guests with all the comforts of home and more.

The mountain views were amazing and we loved sitting on the balcony each morning and watching the days come to life. In the evenings, we cozied up to the fireplace with members of our family and spent time catching up on times past. We enjoyed every moment of our wonderful, memorable stay and can't wait for the opportunity to come back.

If you visit Journey's Retreat, you will not be disappointed! A short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, we loved the fall leaves, picturesque mountains, valleys and especially, Maybry Mills. Be sure and visit the Dutch Oven in Hillsville for the best reuben, homemade breads, doughnuts and muffins, made by Dutch Amish owners, fresh each day.

Thank you to owner, Dr. Jack, and caretaker, Jerry, for making our stay perfect in every way.

amazing cabin with great views

We spent our anniversary weekend here and loved every minute of it. The house is comfortable and had everything we needed. We enjoyed waking up to the beautiful autumn weather and scenery and look forward to returning one day.

Awesome Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This awesome mountain home is the perfect place for a quiet getaway with family or friends. It is extremely well appointed with top-end furnishings, appliances, furniture, linens, and kitchen amenities. It is bright and clean and offers wonderful views of the country-side and trout stream from the large open and covered deck.

The description and photos are well done, but actually it shows even better in live-time upon your arrival. We loved the fact that the owners provided environmentally "green" products (detergents, etc) for use during our stay.

This property is only 20-25 minutes from Floyd, Meadows of Dan, Blue Ridge Parkway, Chateau Morrisette Winery, etc. Dugspur General Store is only 10 minutes away and Hillsville is only 15 minutes away.

The owner (Dr.Jack) and property managers (Jerry/Diane) provided excellent personalized service and ensured our vacation was a success. I can't think of anything that could have been better or different. We will definitely return and want to thank them for allowing us to visit their wonderful home in Dugspur, VA.
