About Bill Day
We're a North Carolina guy and a Kentucky girl who lives in Florida and has a beautiful home in Virginia. And yes, I have done the impossible and converted a Kentucky girl to a Tar Heel basketball fan.
Bill Day purchased this House in 2005
Why Bill Day chose Woolwine
While dating, we visited a Christmas Tree farm in Meadows of Dan and loved it. We decided to get married there and in looking for a minister, we also looked for land. We wanted long range views and finally found a lot in Edgeview Estates just off Belcher Mountain Road. In 2005, I was hating my job and decided to try one more backpacking trip. Went to the Smokies and came out with a couple of days left on my vacation. I decided to go up to our lot and take a sunrise picture that I could put in my office to keep my spirits up. I drove in early one morning and set up the tripod and waited for the sun. It was okay, but not a trophy shot. Packed everything up and headed back up Belcher mountain. Between my comings and goings, someone had put a for sale sign in front of Laurel Point. I met the owners at the house and it was a glorious day. I think I could see Canada. I was known as a fierce negotiator but I was putty in their hands. I knew I had to have that house. They came down a little and I offered them my sweaty handshake. It takes nerves to buy a house without your new bride having seen it. Obviously all is well that ends well. We decided that the worst thing we could do with the house is just let it sit there. We're 11 hours away and are lucky to visit 2 or 3 times a year. So far we have had excellent guests and feel good about sharing our house. Hope you come and visit. It's beautiful during the spring, cool in the summer and spectacular in the fall. Notice I didn't mention winter. A little too cool for this Tar Heel converted Floridian. Bill

Wonderful place with amazing views
This was the perfect trip for my girlfriend and I. As soon as you walk into the home all you see is floor to ceiling glass with the most amazing view on the back deck. You can sit outside all day and once it gets dark, the view gets better with the abundance of stars. This was the perfect weekend get-away and the best place to propose to my girlfriend. We will stay here again!
The most comfortable, inviting getaway you could ever imagine. View is like no other.
I can’t rave enough about this beautiful home. The kitchen is amazing, has anything/everything you could ever need. The windows across the back show what would have to be the best view in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We spent hours watching the hummingbirds feed inches away from us. They were beautiful and fascinating. You will fall in love with these mountains and the area. It was perfect, the most relaxing place we have ever been. Loved Floyd, VA.
For 16 years now, our group of (rapidly aging) bicyclists has been renting various homes in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia to explore the quiet roads up, down, and near the the Blue Ridge Parkway. We have stayed in some fantastic homes but after 15 years we found a true keeper. Laurel Point checked all of the boxes and then some. Spacious, private, and secluded, but close to so much that the area has to offer. The house is beautiful, well maintained and well equipped. The view from the deck has to be experienced as words cannot do it justice. Bill, the owner, was an absolute pleasure to deal with - he is most accommodating and provided us with many local options for dining, exploring, and experiencing the local culture. We are already eagerly anticipating our next visit!
Bill and Mary thank you again for the overwhelming hospitality. The house and view was absolutely amazing and we hope to be back soon. The details you provided as we were planning our trip made things very helpful and we honestly can’t say in words how grateful we are to find your jewel of a home.
Perfect Mountain Holiday Getaway
Both my husband and I lost our fathers during the holiday season (my dad, just one year ago). So we needed to do something different for the holidays. Laurel Point Villa and its gracious owners. Bill and Mary Day, gave us everything, and more than we could have hoped for! The sunrises and sunsets are something we will remember -- forever. The radiant heated floors were much-appreciated when we claimed the award for "coldest stay by a tenant" on January 2, 2018. Bill kept us informed of the various events in the area, and he called on two separate occasions to make certain everything was okay with us. When we had to leave a day early because of the "bombogenesis" in South Carolina (our home), Bill was genuinely disappointed for us and concerned about our safety. Laurel Point Villa reflects this GENUINE concern for people and their joy, comfort, and peace. I cannot say enough good things, except this: "We'll Be Back."
Beyond excellent! A memorable Thanksgiving.
This home is equipped with anything you would need, comfortable and spacious for a large group. There were ten of us. We rented another lovely home nearby to help with sleeping arrangements as the Villa sleeps eight. All of us hung together here though and celebrated Thanksgiving around a table that was ample for all. The kitchen provided modern appliances and plenty of room for several of us to cook together. The views from the deck of the meadows below and mountains beyond are to die for. Sunrise a real treat. And in the evening with all the lights out - the stars!! The Big Dipper was framed, as if up close, in the expansive windows of the living room in the wee hours of the morning (3:30 - 5:00). It was truly magical and awesome. Speaking of awesome, I can't say enough about our hosts. Bill provided the most thorough details about the area and places of interest as well as all aspects of the house. He provided directions to and from the Villa and all sorts of places with personal reviews. I confess most of us didn't go anywhere because we were so happy being there and hanging out together. Beds were comfy - tempurpedic in the master with soft furry blankets. Radiant floor heating, delightful. Electric fireplace so inviting and cozy. You would never know it was in the 20s outside. Plenty of room for parking and handicap accessibility. Husband uses an electric wheelchair and doorways were large enough to glide through. Our dogs were in attendance as well and they had plenty of room to stretch out. Truly couldn't have been better. We hope to return. Maybe next time we will check out some of the local spots. Maybe. 😉��
