About Owner / Property Manager
This home belonged to my grandparents. They owned and operated a general store on one side and lived and raised my mother and her 2 siblings on the other side. I grew up roaming these mountains and am proud to have been raised in such a beautiful place. Every Sunday after church, we drove over the mountains and through the woods, to grandmothers house we went. My family has history in Shady Valley going back over 200 years. I could not stand the thought of this amazing place, just sitting there. My only sister died Jan 4th 2015 - my life crumbled. I retreated to the mountains. I was saved by renovating The Shady House. I poured my grief into every blister, splinter, debt, sweat and after a year, I feel I have worked enough to start enjoying life again. Now, it is important for me to show as many people as I can just how theraputic the mountains can be.

A Great Place for our Family to Meet
We really enjoyed our stay at Shady House! The house was just as described--spacious, comfortable, with everything we needed. The kitchen was well-equipped and light-filled. We enjoyed the large yard, and our toddlers had fun with the balls provided. The adults enjoyed playing ping-pong and darts in the large rec room. We appreciated the extra touches throughout the house and the flowers out front. Kate was always available in case we had questions. The area is beautiful. I believe we'll be back to Shady House!
It's always such a pleasure to know guests have a great experience! Thank you for your support and I would be honored to host your family again.
The Shady House
Kate went the extra mile to have our stay at The Shady House be a wonderful time and memory. If you have a large group, it is the place to stay.
Thank you so much! It was a pleasure serving you. I'd be happy to have you return.
Great place to stay!
Our stay at the Shady Valley property was great! There was a group of 12 of us that stayed at this property the weekend of the Bristol night race (August 16 - 18). The house accommodated everyone nicely There was plenty of room in the house, and the yard is great to relax in. We spent our first evening there outside, some of the group threw around a baseball for a while, the rest of us enjoyed watching them while setting around the fire pit listening to music. The atmosphere is great and very relaxing. Kate was a wonderful host. She wasn't exaggerating when she told us if we needed gas or groceries to get them before going over the last BIG mountain before getting to the house. It indeed is a BIG mountain, and that says a lot when coming from West Virginia!! If ever back down this way again for the races, this is where we will stay again!! THANK YOU KATE FOR SHARING THIS GREAT LOCATION!!!
Thank you for taking such great care of the house. I enjoyed having your group and would be happy to host you again!
Another Great Stay
The Shady House is very comfortable and functional for fairly large family-style groups. Nothing is meant to be plush or lavish but everything works well. The separate AC in every room made hot summer cool and refreshing. Great family accommodations with LOTS of fun outdoor and indoor areas.
Great guests having fun in a clean comfortable space! Thanks for taking care of the house.
It's like a home away from home!
This was our second trip to the Shady House, and definitely not our last. My family loves this place and we've had some of our best times here!
Thank you again Kate!
As always! Terrific experience, love your family! See you again soon new friends!
