Fiddlesticks Farmhouse is an elegant and relaxed retreat where you will be our only guests! The atmosphere is warm and inviting with attention to every detail for your comfort. One, two or three beautiful bedrooms, use of the front porch, two gazebos, 75 acres to roam and a light breakfast. Explore Floyd, with its music, art, food, wineries and hiking - and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain scenery. Optional elegant tea parties which can be a meal or just dessert. Even Tea For Two!
There are one to three available bedrooms, only booked for the same party, as needed. The third bedroom, if needed for spreading out guests, is held for visiting family and friends - though often available. Please message me if you'd be interested and I'll confirm whether I can block it for you.
A party of two can choose between the Jane Austen Room (one queen) and the Mark Twain Room (2 doubles). After booking, simply message the host to let them know your choice of bedroom. The other bedroom will not be booked during your stay, unless your own party has three or more. If you are a party of two who would like two separate bedrooms, please book as three people.
The Jane Austen Room is on the main floor with one queen bed and is tastefully decorated with its own gas fireplace, beautiful views of the countryside, and convenient access to the inviting front porch.
The Mark Twain Room is upstairs, above the Jane Austen Room. It has the original heart pine walls and floors from 1890. It has two double beds, a warm Americana theme and views of the countryside. There is a door directly from this room, as well as the hall to the Breakfast Room. Guests must be able to use stairs to access up to the bedroom and breakfast room.
The third bedroom which is often available, is the lovely Emily Dickinson Room, with a queen and twin bed - on the main floor. It has views of the beautiful English courtyard and countryside.
There will be one large hall bathroom dedicated to your party only. If you are only staying in the downstairs Jane Austen Room, then the downstairs bathroom will be yours. If you choose the upstairs Mark Twain Room only, then the upstairs bathroom will be yours. If you are using both or all three bedrooms, please send a message letting the host know whether you prefer the upstairs or downstairs bathroom.
If you would like two bathrooms and additional living space, see the separate listing under entire house in Floyd, Retreats at Fiddlesticks Farmhouse.
You have access to a refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee machine, french press and electric kettle. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and bottled water are provided. These are provided in the upstairs Breakfast Room, but if stairs are a problem we can provide easy access to amenities on the main floor.
You have direct access to the large and inviting true Southern front porch, where you can rock or nap on a lounge chair. Your light breakfast will be served in the breakfast room.
Check with us to see if the library isn't being used and you're welcome to enjoy everyone's dream room. The private library, worthy of a manor house, can be booked for private events, including Tea for Two!
If an important ball game or show is on, you're welcome to watch TV in the main floor family room.
Don't miss the JK Rowling Cupboard under the Stairs!
You can also take a moment's stroll to the gazebo with rockers or a longer stroll to the spacious enclosed gazebo and deck with mountain views. Feel free to take your coffee with you or wine that you may have bought at one of the local wineries!
Interaction with guests
I'll be here to offer as much or as little assistance as you'd like. I'm more than happy to let you be completely on your own or join you for a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the porch if you'd like. You can stroll the property on your own or I'll join you for a walkabout if you'd like. I'm warm and friendly but completely respect the idea of privacy.
Other things to note
If you live in the area or are in the area for a special occasion, the private library can be reserved for special gatherings and events. Contact the host for details.
Floyd County has now added Airbnb to its collection of a lodging tax of 5%. Until Airbnb provides a line for this to be added (it is calculated automatically for larger cities) then it is suggested the host send a separate request for the amount after booking. Once you book, I will be sending this separate request for the tax amount.
