Nice place to stay. We were there for tailgating at VT, so it was an easy distance to Lane Stadium. The kitchen area was important for food prep. The area was very clean. The Sibold Effect added to our colorful trip!

David is spot on with the description and is a great host. Super convenient to N. Main St. and Virginia Tech, imagine the views when the leaves are changing would be nothing but spectacular.

It was a great place to get away and get disconnected. The view was great, kids struggled with no wifi but survived. We went hiking near by and just loved it
