Why Ruth Duncan chose Newport
Close to VT & RU campuses Near Blacksburg VA Much more than a cabin, a Retreat So relaxing and quiet and peaceful, listen to the streams. Giles County is a place filled with natural beauty, fresh waters, abundant wildlife and fish, hiking trails, canoe livery's, suited for the active and also for those wanting to be close to nature and enjoy peace and quiet time. Yet this is only 8 miles from the Virginia Tech campus and Blacksburg, the adjoining small quaint college town with unique shops and dining experiences. Just 8 miles 4-lane highway to VA Tech Campus( Football, basketball, track, swimming, softball, events too numerous to list). NOT A HOTEL - You are renting a complex not just a bed. Fully anointed house, large porches, small hiking area, picnic shelter, with tables, chairs, grills, fire pit, country swing
What makes this Cabin unique
All natural wood construction quality built including some oversize timbers. We love it here because of the quaintness of country and college atmospheres so intertwined yet with distance, a place to relax and enjoy and a place to be adventuresome whenever the mood strikes. The mountain streams flowing through the front yard is so unique and chatters to you so nicely.

We had a wonderful time at this cozy cabin in the woods. It was just a short drive from VT, where we enjoyed a football game.
The cabin was clean, comfortable and well supplied. Ruth left a sweet welcome note and some yummy muffins upon our arrival. My son enjoyed wandering down the trail collecting chestnuts and we loved our time on the porch listening to the creek, a short rainstorm and the birds.
thank you for a very nice review.
We certainly appreciate the clean and orderly manner you left our property.
Just a warning, there are also buckeyes in our area that resemble chestnuts. They are usually larger than our chestnuts so be very careful and please be sure of what you eat. Thanks again for all. You are welcome to return and hope you can in the future.
Loved the front porch, sitting and listening to the creek below. Very relaxing and the owners thought of everything. Definitely worth the trip.

Buck Lair was the perfect place for our family get-away. The setting of the cabin is very private & peaceful. Starting each day on the porch with my book & coffee was simply dreamy. The house was spotless and had absolutely everything we needed for our stay. It is obvious Ruth & Gerald love this home and enjoy sharing it with others. Thank you and we can't wait for our next visit!
