    Our place is very private and quiet. It has been said “It’s absolutely fantastic; the buildings are snug and wonderful, this homestead is a perfect little rustic hideaway in the mountains." Need early-risers, have an inner enjoyment of nature, enjoys rustic living. Our place has 21 wooded acres and 3 cleared acres.

    Appalachian Trail Walker may come take a down time. Will pick you up at Pearisburg, Virginia or make a special arrangement for pickup at a nearby hostel.
