About Vickie Blevins

We are Rodger and Vicki Blevins and we both grew up along the banks of the New River. We were high school sweethearts who married young and then we too raised our family here in our beautiful little town in the mountains. We enjoy our time working here on the property, spending time with our church family and of course spoiling our three children and three grandsons.

Vickie Blevins purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Vickie Blevins chose Fries

After renting space for my salon in this property for years, to opportunity presented itself for us to purchase. As retirement was approaching, we thought this would be a good investment for us to work at in the upcoming years. When we bought the property, it was in varying states of disrepair. We have been working on this property to restore it, update it and bring new life into our community. We have enjoyed working here and are thrilled at the opportunities to host and meet new visitors to our south western Virginia town.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment puts you in the heart of town, but still gives you the peace and tranquility of a cozy nest. You are just steps away from the New River, the New River Trail, beautiful grassy areas along the river perfect for picnics and family play and also local dining.

....and of course, the beautiful mountain views and roaring sound of water falling over the dam.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

Growing up in the area, this place really made me feel like I was back home. Right beside the New River, and dead center of the small town of Fries, the apartment gives you exactly the feeling you want if you're going to visit small town Southwest Virginia.

clean, tranquil and friendly

  • 5 of 5

Vickie greeted us when we arrived and let us know she was available if we needed her. She and her family were very welcoming but not intrusive. The apartment is spotless and very comfortable and the view of the New River off the deck is fantastic! The New River trail is literally steps away and biking, kayaking and hiking are all right there. We enjoyed exploring the town of Fries and surrounding areas - finishing the weekend at the Blue Ridge Music Center. Highly recommend!

Very clean, cozy place to stay and perfect location for fishing and fun!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location!!! We loved the apartment!! It was very clean and cozy and had everything we needed for a great stay. Towels and linens were provided along with a small stove in the kitchen with oven, dishes, and utensils. They also have a laundry room down stairs which was very convenient and a storage room to store your fishing gear. Walk right out back to the amazing deck for beautiful views and relaxation. If your family likes to fish you are just steps from the river where we did some great fishing. If you like to ride bikes, kayaks, or tubes on the river you are approximately a mile to a shop that does rentals. My daughter and I enjoyed walking the trail that was just steps away. There is also a Dollar General Store less than a mile away which was very convenient. If you family likes to dine out it is approximately 4 miles from Pizza Hut, A great hometown buffet, Chinese food and several other restaurants. It really was the idea spot for our family. We will definitely be back!!!

Absolutely PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the cutest apartment I have ever seen!!! The bunk beds were perfect too. The bedding was super comfortable and everything you need is in the kitchen. The back deck with the different chairs and tables is a bonus. I went for a run every morning I was there and all of it was just perfect!!! Vicki is so, so nice too!!! Thank you!!!
