Guestbook comments from the owner

Creekside Cottage was everything I hoped it would be. It was such a charming little cottage that had everything you needed to be comfortable. My husband and I plan to return earlier in the year to visit Foggy Ridge Cider to have a sample of the cider. Thanks Diane for sharing your precious cottage with my husband and I, it was exactly what we needed.

Car: necessary

The Garden House is in a rural area of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, just 8 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Nearby attractions include Mabry Mill, Primland Golf Resort, the New River Trail (a walking and biking trail), Buffalo Mountain and the back-in-time town of Floyd, home to the General Store Friday Night Jamboree. Local potters from the 16 Hands Studio and local music on the Crooked Road round out the offerings in this quiet corner of Virginia.

Bring a road bike for the Blue Ridge Parkway, or a fat tire bike for the nearby New River Trail and experience some of the south's best biking. Hiking is right out the front door on the 200 acre Foggy Ridge Cider farm—nearby Buffalo Mountain and the Rock Castle Gorge trail system offer hikes with long views across the Blue Ridge. The town of Floyd is a must for the Friday Night Jamboree, and local restaurants featuring music and fresh local dishes. Troika art gallery in Floyd features the area's best artists, plus many must-see pottery studios scattered around the county. The Blue Ridge Music Center, only a 30 minute drive, offers music every night during summer and fall. Primland Golf Resort is a 20 minute drive from the Garden House, with world class golf and upscale dining. Closer by you'll find Olde Mill Golf Resort with a stunning mountain course and excellent dining at Maples Restaurant.

Great little cottage away from it all. Perfect place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Foggy Cider Farm. It was a perfect little getaway cottage in a beautiful mountain setting. Accomodations were great everything was very clean. Beds are comfortable. The gardens around the home are great. My boyfriend and I love taking photos and we enjoyed the butterfly's and humming birds that would visit. We're hikers too. There are fantastic hikes in the area as well as the property. Great little mountain towns nearby to enjoy. Our favorite 2 spots were the Poor Farmers Market in Meadows of Dan and the Creek Bottom Brewery in Galax, BEST wings we've ever tried. We will definitely be coming back for a second vacation! Thanks so much Diane for your hospitality and letting us share in your beautiful garden cottage retreat!!!

Owner's Response: I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay in the Garden House! Hiking is one of my favorite on-farm activities, and I agree there are great hikes nearby. We will add Creek Bottom Brewery to our guest book; it sounds like the perfect spot to visit in Galax after a bike ride on the New River Trail! Come back in Spring to enjoy different scenery and all the great pottery and art galleries in the area!

Great and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Cute little cottage off the grid. The mountain version of being at the beach. Peace, quiet and dark nights. The only room for improvement is the need for some additional basic cookware. Otherwise a great experience. We are already thinking about our next visit with the kids.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in this rural retreat and that you plan to return with the family. We've just added new cookware, and updated cooking utensils so you should find a fresh set of everything in place when you next visit. The VRBO site details the kitchen supplies, for the future. And let us know if there is a specialty item you think we should add to the Garden House cottage!

nicely remodeled and clean but need be told no tv reception

  • 4 of 5

the cabin was lovely and clean , but it happened to be very hot during the day and the only a/c was for the upstairs bedroom. we also did not understand that there was no tv.. That was our fault for not checking for it. We enjoyed the surrounding small towns and the beautiful country area roads.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your drives around our rural area and I'm sorry we were experiencing a heat wave during your stay. The upstairs twin bed bedroom is very cool with AC running even on warm days. Please consider another visit this fall!

Great Secluded Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at this cottage. We stayed 3 nights and loved every single day and night. We hiked, walked, and ran on the property and road that this property is on. We loved listening to the creek while we went to sleep and enjoyed seeing all of the wildlife in the area. We even awoke to a pile of bear poop outside in the yard our last morning - evidence that a bear was in the yard in the night. We would have loved to see the bear but never did see any. We had no cell service most of the time and that didn't bother us one bit....we were glad to be disconnected and enjoy each other's company. We would have liked to meet Diane but had no way of contacting her. We enjoyed the free cider tasting and bought some of the cider to remember our stay there. We will definitely stay here again if our travels bring us to the area.
