Enjoyed every minute

I was on a working vacation to see a sick friend and this place was perfect. I had Internet so I could work while my friend stayed with me while he recovered. I highly recommend this place. It is definitely worth every penny.

Great place, quiet, clean. Great retreat for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Love it! The place was easy to find, rural peaceful setting and one of the cleanest places we've ever stated at. Location was close to Hillsville which allowed us easy access to the Memorial Day flea market while providing a place to get away from the crowds. Plus there were several flea markets close by. The owner was great, provided clear directions and contact information if we needed anything. We will definitely come back! Thank you!
