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.

Perfect for Virginia Tech Visit
Buck Lair was the perfect location for our graduation stay and celebration, only ten minutes away from our son's apartment in Blacksburg. We were greeted by a special treat of cupcakes decorated with icing in Virginia Tech colors - very thoughtful! The cabin was clean and well-appointed with comfortable furniture and our boys and their friends loved the rustic décor and hunting trophies. We avoided the graduation crowds and enjoyed preparing meals in the fully-stocked kitchen, cooking out on the grill and relaxing by the fire pit next to the babbling brook. It was everything that I hoped for when I found in online.

Impressive ! 5 stars are not enough!
We can’t say enough nice things about our stay and the accomadations. Mrs Duncan left us several welcoming gifts such as a pastry , fresh milk and sodas. That she would do that just made us feel even more welcome. The cabin and the scenery are beautiful and the cabin is nicely decorated. I highly recommend this home and we will definitely be back again.

We look forward to your return in the future
Buck Lair is a fantastic retreat. Our stay was peaceful, relaxing, fun and just what we needed. The owners are great as well. They had the fridge and pantry stocked with the basics plus so much more. They had soda, water, milk and even fresh pastries for us to enjoy with a Happy Anniversary note. There were a couple of hiccups with the cabin that were completely out of the owners' control, but they went above and beyond to make it right. Our 6yo son loved his loft bedroom and exploring nature so much. A car would drive by occasionally, but you didn't hear it unless you were outside. Most of the time, all you heard outside was the peaceful sound of the streams. Buck Lair is a fantastic retreat!
