Guestbook comments from the owner

This spotless little cottage sits at the base of a mountain with a creek literally running 20' from the bedroom window. The atmosphere is completely relaxing with hummingbirds putting on a show all day long. The flowers on the property are beautiful. The pictures of the property provided on the website are exactly as shown. The bed was soooo comfortable! This cottage has been completely remodeled. Upstairs has two twin beds & is actually a large area. The picture of the stairs...the entire upstairs looks just like that! It's so pretty & smells so good.

At first when we arrived, I was concerned because there was no a/c. You know what though? It wasn't necessary, & the temp rose to the low 90's during the day. There are plenty of fans to keep the air moving.

There isn't a tv...which is a PLUS! Enjoy it, seriously. We sat on the front porch, talking, reading & listening to nature. It was amazing. And, we are tv fanatics.

Diane (the owner) is wonderful. She responded to my emails very quickly & answered every question. You will love her! And, she gives you two free cider tastings. The cider was delicious!

There is so much to do around Foggy Ridge Cottage. We went for the Hillsville Flea Market--did not enjoy that. It's a circus. But, Floyd County has several good restaurants, & The General Store has dancing on Friday nights. It's a hoot! The place was packed! There are wineries close by; Mabry Mill is beautiful & worth the short drive. We met so many friendly people. I swear, I could go on & on!

I would definitely recommend Creekside Cottage to anyone. Get away from your big city & go enjoy the quiet, country life. Oh, the stories you will hear!!

Beautiful inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautifully appointed and has everything you need. We hiked and basically rested. We did see a mother black bear in the upper field near the house with her 3 cubs. We decided not to do that hike on that day. The owners are friendly and very helpful.

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Diane very responsive and provided good info. We spent 4 nights at the Cottage and really enjoyed it! It felt peaceful the moment we walked in. Sat on front porch during thunderstorm, ate every breakfast on the side deck, enjoyed some veggies from their garden located behind the cottage. Kitchen had all we needed and there was just the two of us so we did not use the upstairs space. Very clean and nicely decorated. It is way out in the country in a beautiful setting where you can see all kinds of birds, butterflies, wildflowers, dark sky at night and quiet!! Just the sounds of nature. The cider house is just up the road from the Cottage and we took advantage of our free cider tasting and came home with some great apple port. Fishing spot just down the road from the cottage....

It does not take you long to connect with the Parkway from here or to even get back to the town of Floyd.

For those who cannot survive without technology.....there is no wifi and we had no phone service in the house (one of us has Sprint and the other has Verizon). We brought a hot spot but it did not work in the house either. The driveway is on a slight incline from the house and we had everything as soon as we walked to our car!! and reception bars got stronger as you drove up the road. We were away most afternoons and evenings at an event so this did not bother us but some people might not adapt well. It was just what my spirit needed! We hope to go back...

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a kind note about our creekside cottage! We are off the beaten path, with much wildlife, cool mountain temperatures and scenic hikes. But not much cell service! Verizon is the carrier of choice for rural areas like our's. I'm able to get 2 bars Verizon service inside the Garden House, but since the house is creekside, it is at a low point on the property. Service on the driveway or even at the Foggy Ridge Cider tasting room is fine. Guests can grab our WiFi hot spot at Foggy Ridge Cider during weekend open hours too.

Great Cottage Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Even though my stay was short, I enjoyed the Garden House very very much. The cottage was nice with plenty of room for myself. I am sure it would still be comfortable for 3 or 4 others. The area was nice and quiet, just like I wanted. I saw plenty of wildlife, several deer, some wild turkeys and one day on my drive to town, i even saw a black bear cub. Diane is the perfect hostess, when I arrived she already had fresh sugar snap peas from her own garden; and fresh eggs in the fridge.

Relaxing, comfortable stay in an agricultural setting

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 nights at the cottage following a longer camping excursion in the area. This small home is set in the hills between forest and agricultural land, including the cidery's garden plots, vegetable frame house and nearby apple orchards. The cottage was comfortable, tastefully decorated, inviting and very clean. The kitchen was fully equipped with new appliances and had most everything we needed to cook our own meals. The bathroom was spotless and the shower water hot. The nights were virtually silent and I slept like a rock. Note that you will not have data coverage in this area, nor cell coverage if you have a provider other than Verizon (which was a plus for us). It is located a little way off the larger roads but worth the extra drive if you desire peace and quiet.

Serene Escape

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this quiet and cozy cottage. Having debated between staying in a house with more technological capabilities, we were so glad that we chose this house with no TV or wifi. We were truly able to spend time as a family without distractions. We hiked, splashed in the creek and played games inside and out. Our favorite small mountain town, Floyd, is just a scenic drive away. The owner, Diane, was very hospitable and the Foggy Ridge cider was delicious. We hope to visit the Creekside Cottage again soon!

Owner's Response: We're delighted you enjoyed the Garden House with your family. Rock House Creek is always a great spot for wading, and our quiet corner of the Virginia mountains is an ideal get away. Come back soon!

Wonderful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and baby had a wonderful visit to this lovely cabin! The surrounding area is beautiful - rolling mountains and farmland. The cabin itself was great - simple but very nice and comfortable. There is a beautiful hiking trail starting right behind the cabin - really a treat! Diane and Chuck were very welcoming hosts, and the cidery and tastings were an extra bonus to a great stay. Will definitely go back!

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.
