“One of the best places to eat BBQ in Virginia. It is rustic and has no frills, which allows one to focus on the undeniably great food. The pulled pork or smoked turkey are amazing and paired with the homemade potato salad and a lime-aid, it is heaven.”

“This is a must! If you stay over a weekend, please make time to go to the market. It opens on Saturday morning at the base of the mountain near the entrance of Stoney Creek. The locals come out and sale things from: jewelry, wood working, goat cheese, desserts, flowers, fruits and vegetables, and much more. A great time and such a peaceful place. Simple living. They have live music playing, a few bites to sample, and country living at its best. ”
