House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Bullfrog Hill: I rented your house the weekend of Sept 18-20 (Nebraska game). Our group totaled 10 people, and everyone had a great weekend. Your home was a perfect setup for us. Excellent location, clean, linens ready for us, ample parking, key pad (great idea) and very clear instructions. I tried to think of some constructive feedback to help you in the future, but I couldn't really think of anything. Thanks again for making your home available - Andy Good 9/18/09

Why Jeannie Trice Lytton chose Blacksburg

Blacksburg has always been a special place. Small town with lots of activities to enjoy, great restaurants, peaceful mountains to contemplate.

What makes this house unique

We love the Huckleberry Trail convenience to exercise or get to the Hokies Games at Lane Stadium. It seems we take a couple of trips to the Super Kroger - so it's a good thing it's only 2 mins away. We love to hear the Hokie Band on game days or watch the fireworks at Ring Dance. The backyard and patio are awesome throwing the football around or Corn Hole tournments and grilling our favorite recipes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jeannie,

We are back in Maryland now after a great couple of days in Blacksburg. The house worked out great!! Thanks so much. Such character it has. It reminded us of homes in our hometown of Somerset, PA. Thanks again

Graduation Stay

  • 4 of 5

Great house; very centrally located with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The backyard is beautiful, quiet and private. We had a nice little cookout following graduation. We all enjoyed our visit and will keep this house on our list for future visits to the area. Thanks for the hospitality and the cookies; such a thoughtful touch.

Roomy house with dated interior on lovely grounds

  • 3 of 5

Eight of us--3 couples and 2 children-- stayed at the house in between attending wedding festivities in Radford. It adequately filled the bill of giving everyone a clean and comfortable place to sleep, the children room to run around, and a location convenient to playgrounds, running trails, grocery store, and downtown Blacksburg. That said, the interior of the house and some of its appliances appear to have been frozen in the late 1980s. The feeling one gets is that the family is renting mom and dad's old house--just as it was when they used to live in it. Holiday renters do not get the house to themselves. The basement is rented out to long-term tenants -- thus eliminating the peace, quiet, and privacy that one would otherwise expect. The landlord/manager is helpful and responsive but lives out of state. In sum, unless you are a large group of football fans attending a VT game and interested in holding a backyard BBQ, you might not find this place worth the price.

Graduation Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My family of 10 people stayed here for VT 2014 graduation weekend. The beds were very comfortable, the house was clean and very well appointed with towels, patio chairs with cushions, kitchen with pots, microwave, coffee maker, etc. There is plenty of off street parking and the house is very roomy and quaint. The yard was big for a great party. Overall it was a wonderful weekend! We were very lucky to be able to spend time together whereas if we were in a hotel it would not have been as much family time. We walked to Lane Stadium in about 15 mins for the graduation ceremony and then a short drive to the other side of campus for the college graduation. The owner was very nice to work with and very thoughtful. Wonderful, memorable experience! Would definitely go back again.

Ashburn Parent's Weekend in Blacksburg

  • 5 of 5

10 of us shared this rental property for a weekend get together to visit our Hokies. The property felt like we were in our own home. It was clean, comfortable and had a great backyard. We all walked to the stadium for the football game and returned for a cookout. I have told everyone I run into that are alumni or with students at VT it is a great place to stay. Our group can't wait to do it again next year!

Great decision

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a long weekend recently when my son was married in Blacksburg. It was one of the best decisions I made planning the event. We were very comfortable there, the location was perfect, and the owner very pleasant to work with. Staying in this home was much more fun and pleasant than a hotel would ever be. In addition to having a much better community weekend, it was wonderful to have a well equipped kitchen, laundry, spacious backyard....A nice surprise was the layout of all the bedrooms was such that it was very private and quiet in them. Thank you to the owners for your part in making our weekend even more special.

Owner's Response: We are so happy we could provide a comfortable place from which your family could enjoy a memorable time together. We have always found it great; being tucked up on our private "hill" but still close to everything. Having the grocery store 2 minutes from the house sure comes in handy! Also, with the new resturants and shops at the 1st and Main St. are really awesome and a great 5 minute walk. We hope you will think of us for many Anniversaries to come!

Notes:
........., want to let you know we really enjoyed our weekend at your house. Yesterday we spent some time sitting in the back sitting in the sun, reading, through a football around.. We did catch the soccer game thursday night where VT won 3 to O. Fri we had lunch with our girls at Greeks (excellent choice!!) And then walked across the street to Hokie Hair to get pink streaks and feathers! We did walk the trail both Fri and Sat.. beautiful walk. If u have time I would love to know the history of the house.. Is this where you grew up! I was looking at the pictures in the living room trying to put the pieces together.. My daugters enjoyed looking at the 1976 yearbook. Tyear I also graduated from HS) Again thank-you for such a comfortable experience.... Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T
