Shhhh! Quiet!!! You might have found the key to Time Travel – At least you might think you’ve turned the clock back to the 1970’s to visit Grandma and Grandpa. They live off the beaten path in the Quiet of the past. In season, you might catch them in the garden, tending fruit trees, picking apples, making cider. You might catch a glimpse of deer walking through the garden. Hush! If you’re successful turning back the clock, you might see a grandchild coming to visit – If not, just enjoy!

The space
We're 5 to 45 min from the popular Happy Hollow Gardens, Valhalla Vineyards, AmRhein's Wine Cellars, Beliveau Estate Winery, VA Tech. & 2 entrances to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We Care About All Who Visit! Consequently, we are cautious about using cleaning chemicals, special fragrances and/or scented detergents that can cause even minor reactions in some people. You can depend upon our 'clean' being just that!

Where you’ll be

Roanoke, Virginia, United States

We are located on a gravel road (for rare downhill, oncoming traffic) on the top of a ridge that is part of about 300 acres of woodlands containing a pond, creek and multiple logging & game trails. Our part of this ridge is for us, our guests, our daughter and son in law, and one neighbor. Most of the time it is exceptionally quiet! Enjoy the peace and quiet.

If you are quiet and still, a deer, turkey, rabbit or squirrel might zip by to say hello. There are two young bucks that visit almost every day or early evening, this time of year. Then the dog announces her presence, and they make a quiet exit, with the flash of their whitetail. No honking horns, traffic sounds or loud people!

IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT EXPLORE/WALK AROUND THE PROPERTY AFTER DARK! !

Retired but working harder than ever maintaining our 10 acres within 350 acres of woodlands. Tending fruit trees, raised bed gardens, chickens and dog. Upkeep of our 3000 sq. ft. home is consuming. Avid History buff, love to talk Philosophy , reminisce raising five children & enjoying fourteen grand children. Relaxing time spent watching TV & going to Floyd Country Store to experience live Blue Grass & Gospel Music.

During your stay

We welcome all opportunities to 'meet & greet' each of our guests! However, our main goal to to provide all of our guests with a generous amount of "Peace & Quiet". Trying to maintain a balance between the two requires us to take advantage of 'meet & greet' opportunities when they occur naturally. However, if our guest chooses to initiate an encounter with us, we welcome any effort and will respond accordingly. The guest takes the lead!
