About New River Outdoor Co.
The Stoudenmires opened for business out of the first floor of their home in Pearisburg, VA in the spring of 2004. Initially, they offered canoe and kayak rentals and guided smallmouth trips on the New River, as well as two cabin rentals on their newly purchased 50-acre property on Walker Creek. They soon added to their cabin rental line-up by building the Bear Foot Cabin which opened for rental at the beginning of the 2008. The increasing demand for their guiding, outfitting and lodging services continued to grow so they built another cabin and moved their place of business to its current location in Pembroke, VA for the 2009 season. Since moving their business to Pembroke, the Stoudenmires have built an additional log cabin (Anglers' Roost) and remodeled two rentals (including the Creekside Lodge). In 2013, they took a winter off from cabin projects and focused on expanding their family with the birth of their daughter, whose presence has since become the highlight of both our long-time & new visitors. In the fall of 2015, they embarked on their latest project, purchasing another 90-acres on Walker Creek, just upstream from their original location, and breaking ground on their Red Pine Cottage. It opened for rentals in June of 2016 and is the first in their new series of high-end vacation rentals they plan to unveil over the course of the next several years. Currently, Walker Creek Retreat encompasses five cabins and cottages offering guests a collection of unique, water-front lodging options in the New River Valley .
New River Outdoor Co. purchased this Cabin in 2003
Why New River Outdoor Co. chose Pearisburg
Starting a marriage and business at the same time, from ground zero, was not an easy proposition. But with lots of prayers, patience and hard work, Britt & Leigh Stoudenmire have built their business and reputation in the tourism industry while establishing themselves as one of the top outfitters, guide services, and cabin retreats in Virginia. From the very beginning, the Stoudenmires have modeled their businesses by putting an emphasis on their clients' experience and providing quality services and have even received numerous awards for their work. They are excited about what the future holds and look forward to continuing to provide first-class recreational and lodging opportunities to those visiting the New River Valley.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Creekside Lodge was the original house on the property and has undergone 3 remodels in the last 14 years. We love making updates and adding new features and we strive to make it as comfortable as home. A unique benefit of the Creekside Lodge is our ability to provide kayak rentals that are delivered right to your cabin and/or floats on the New River for either guided fishing excursions or self-guided canoe/kayak trips. We've been outfitting folks on the river and lodging families/groups in our cabins for 14 years and we like to think we have a special place that can't help but build lasting memories for you and yours as well.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Our group really enjoyed our stay here for a long weekend of river activities and the VT football game. The cabin was big and clean with plenty of space for everyone. We grilled and hung out on the big porch a lot. The only downside was the WiFi didn't really work at the cabin itself. We knew going in we wouldn't really have service but we were under the impression the WiFi would at least work in the cabin for texting and checking emails. We had to walk out to the main parking area to get any WiFi service. It wasn't a huge deal but was annoying when trying to plan meetups with other friends. Would definitely stay here again, though.
Very lovely area
We very much enjoyed our stay here. Would recommend.
Back again for our 4th time!!!
When our son was attending Virginia Tech, we needed a place to accomodate our large family, and we fell in love with The Creekside Lodge!! Being that it is right on the water, includes use of the tubes so we could tube all week on the creek, and the fact that it is so remote... we couldn't help but come back again and again. Our family of 10 fit comfortably in the lodge and we have also had guests stay in their tents on the huge lawn by the firepit. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and willing to fix any small issues/problems that come up. When we stayed the first time, their was not cell phone service or WIFI available but this time, they had WIFI available...however our family prefers to disconnect from the real world and go off the grid for this precious family time together!!! We all sleep so peacefully when we are at Creekside and have TONS of funny stories and memories each time we stay. I would recommend this Retreat to anyone and everyone. Enjoy!!
Thank you Michelle! As always, we enjoyed your stay with us, too! Let us know when you two can get away for a couples-only stay!! ;) Have a great rest of your summer!
Great location and lodge!
Creekside Lodge was a great place for a get-away meetup! Three of us came from different directions and the location was great. A quiet setting along Walker Creek could not have been better and the lodge offered a clean and comfortable stay. The only thing that kept this from being a five-star rating was a series of issues that seem to have resulted from a neglect of common maintenance. The internet did not work the whole time we were there and although I suggested from the very start that it was not a Wi-Fi problem but a problem with obtaining an IP address it was not resolved before we left. After several attempts at changing out wireless equipment they finally agreed that it was an internet problem and not a Wi-Fi issue. Ordinarily, this would not have been a necessity for a get-away however there was no cell service most of the time at the location and internet would have provided a connection to the outside world and an opportunity to check out the area online. Other issues were the shower in the master bath was not functioning properly, the coffee maker needed to be replaced as it could not be programmed and took over 30 minutes to brew manually, and the ice maker in the refrigerator had an "out of order" sign on it. The guest information book had restaurant suggestions and the one we chose the first night turned out to be out of business. The alternative we chose was Palisades which was a great choice. We were able to live with the issues, but to achieve a five star rating, they need attention. I would consider a second chance based upon the location.
Once again, Dave, thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed the Creekside Lodge, the creek, and the area in whole. After 14 years of providing top-notch lodging in our area and since we do not live at the property we do heavily rely on our guests to let us know when common maintenance issues arise, especially during our busy season when turn-arounds are all back-to-back. So, while we wish Dave would have let us know of the issues while he was here, we thanked him for bringing them to our attention – it allowed us to get them corrected for the next guests. Again, we sincerely appreciate our guests’ comments, concerns, and accolades and have always strived to provide all who stay with us a beautiful place where they can feel at home (and the personal attention to be on call when situations do arise). Many Blessings, Britt & Leigh Stoudenmire
Everything was neat, clean and operable. Having a working ice maker would be an asset, though.
Having made many trips to this facility over the last 10 years it is obvious that it meets all of my needs and those of my fellow fishermen. Dining at the Palisades is always a treat in the evening, and the J&J Grocery provides a real flavor for country cooking. Very comfortable and quiet setting.
The fishing is excellent.
Thanks for the kind words, Stewart! We look forward to your visits every year. Thanks for reminding me that the ice machine needs to be hooked up in our new fridge!! We'll get on that and look forward to seeing you guys again soon!
Even more amazing than we expected!
Some college friends and I chose this cabin because it was located between us. We couldn't have picked a better place to relax and unwind. The cabin was much bigger than we'd anticipated, and it was well-equipped. The furniture was comfortable, the cabin was clean, and there was nothing to be desired. (If we had been there in warmer weather, I would have missed having a washing machine and dryer to wash towels and bathing suits.) We found the location to be beautiful, but you would definitely need a car to get around. We went three times in three days to the nearby Palisades restaurant. We are planning to return again as soon as possible.
The Creekside Lodge is owned by New River Outdoor Co. which offers daily canoe & kayak rentals on the New River and guided fishing trips for smallmouth bass & musky.
