My family of 14 stayed in the James River House and had a great experience. They accommodated an early check-in and were very easy to work with. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the space was adequate for our group. It was a convenient location for us, only a 30 minute drive to Roanoke College where we were watching soccer games. We also enjoyed the cute pub/restaurant located next door and local hikes.
We rented this place in Fall 2016. This is very a spacious place and can host a group of 8-10 people easily (even more). The owner was very helpful and answered all our concerns on time. We were a party of 8 people and we all had great time staying here.
House was great. Everything was provided (linens, bathroom towels, fully stocked kitchen ). Everything was clean & neat instead. Located in a quaint, little civil war town. Highly recommended!
Monsoon rains did not dampen the charm of this historic building. Thanks for hosting 9 overnight guests plus a few extra family members as we helped celebrate a niece's wedding
Perfect quiet spot! Nice layout for multiple couples. We shared many happy memories!
For a house built back in 1870, I was impressed how well it has been maintained. The owners have added all modern conveniences and each room is nicely decorated with paintings, etc. The kitchen has all needed utensils, plates, cups, glasses and spices which is a real plus since Bucchan does not overflow with places to eat (especially on a Sunday evening). The beds were comfortable as well as the furniture. I found everything to my liking and highly recommend it.
Excellent small mouth bass fishing, stock trout fishing(Spring time), Outstanding Hunting location in the Jefferson National Forest, Blue Ridge Parkway
