Paige and Tom, We were thrilled with The Bungalow….It turned our meeting with our new grandbabies into a wonderful relaxing vacation for their Mommies and The Girls. We enjoyed walking on the New River Trail. Our 2 cockers loved it as well! We will return…Thanks again, L & B
Dear Tom & Paige, Your place was perfect for our Thanksgiving weekend. Clean, well decorated and fully equipped. We enjoyed our stay and thank you for the loaner bicycle. We loved the New River Trail. If ever this way again we’ll definitely stay here. EB and MW
Paige & Tom, Thank you for your hospitality here at The Bungalow. We enjoyed the tranquility of the autumn leaves from the porch, and the glorious moon every night. We made a day trip to Ferrum for a visit to the Folk Life Festival, and to my boyfriend’s childhood haunts. We carved pumpkins and cooked a ton, and were so pleased with the well equipped kitchen? K was not expecting to find a zester/cheese grater, and yet there it was, and made our lives so much easier. Thanks again, and we hope to be back soon! D & K
Dear Paige and Tom, Your wonderful bungalow became our home away from home for an August week. We loved best the quiet beauty of the surrounding. The hummingbirds, full of antics, provided many smiles and laughs. We spent several afternoons swimming, boating, tubing, and skiing at Claytor Lake State Park. What a nearby gem! The New River Trail where it crosses from Allisonia by trestle provided great photos. Our last day we drove the incredibly beautiful single land mountain road of State Route 738 to Jefferson National Forest for a shallow water hike in Dismal Creek followed by swimming at Dismal Falls. After each day’s adventures we returned home to The Bungalow to watch evening wane to night. Against the backdrop of the Milky Way we counted the shooting stars of August’s annual Perseid Meteor Shower. Thank you for your hospitality. Coming away to the quiet beauty of the mountains has refreshed us in body, mind, soul and spirit. S, S, & S
Dear Paige and Tom, We really enjoyed our week here with our family. We really enjoyed Claytor Lake State Park! We spent several days there during the week. The Bungalow was very clean and well stocked with everything needed. Thank you for a wonderful week! The D family
Paige and Tom, Thank you so much for our wonderful stay during our son’s graduation from Tech. Coming from CA, we are so used to “nighttime” noises, that our first night here almost seemed surreal. It was perfect. We all agreed, we had never slept so good. This place is warm and inviting and has the perfect setting for a stay. WE are happy we picked your place for what was not only a wonderful occasion, but a wonderfully relaxing stay. Thanks!! S & J H
Tom & Paige, It has been a very interesting 3 months for me at The Bungalow. Coming from NY to the mountains of southwest VA was a drastic but enjoyable change. The snow (which I tried leaving in NY) made the drive to/from work hear-pounding (but beautiful) to say the least. Once it warmed up a bit, I finally got to take the bike out on the trails and enjoyed some fantastic rides with great view point? I enjoyed many relaxing naps out on the deck in the sun and my morning cup of coffee out on the deck became something I looked forward to every day. And then there was the beautiful serenity of each night. I can honestly say that I have not had so many good nights of sleep as I had had here in my life. Thank you for providing a “great escape” and home for my travel job contract. TP
Dear Paige and family, This bungalow is beautiful, always we have rented cabins in the summer in North Carolina, but next year 2010 we will come back here, because it is beautiful, the bungalow and the mountains. The A family
Dear Paige and Tom, We like the Bungalow, maybe even better than The Cabin! Everything was outstanding, as always. We’ll be back in the spring. Thank you, M & R
Dear Tom and Paige, D and I loved being here after the Tech game. It is beautiful. We spent a lot of time up here doing our days at Tech and it’s always wonderful to return. Your cabin is perfect . We are discussing coming back with some of our family to enjoy it again! D & P L
We enjoyed our stay at the bungalow very much. Everything was very clean and cozy. We hope to come back again next year. The view is very good. The J’s
Dear Paige & Tom, We so enjoyed our time at The Bungalow. Thanks for having such a clean place with everything we could need. We enjoyed the daily deer sightings and the view from the deck. We rented bikes and rode 26 miles on the New River Trail! This was a nice break—thanks! F & C
Dear Bungalow—You are the perfect, relaxing, beautiful second-home anyone could ever want…thank you. Your humble guest for three nights, D
The Bungalow was everything we could have hoped for. We had a wonderful time here, exploring the area, kayaking but most of all…enjoying the view. Having moved from Lake Placid, NY to Richmond VA, this is certainly the place to come to for my homesickness. We will definitely com back, maybe for some snow? Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to come to. The F’s
I am a graduate student at Tech trying desperately to get finished. I used The Bungalow as a writer’s retreat to get a working draft of my dissertation. Thanks to the quiet and lack of distractions, I’m happy to report I leave with a completed draft of my proposal! I suppose I’ll be back a few weeks before I have to defend it. Thanks! T
Thanks for a beautiful view, a cozy place to come back to and the chance for some wonderful walks in the woods! I’ll be back! S
Dear Paige and Tom, We so appreciated the clean, efficient, and comfortable set up of The Bungalow. Biking to Draper was a lot of fun, and we look forward to canoeing down to Fosters Falls tomorrow. Next time we’ll be sure to bring our Springer Spaniel! E & S
Paige and Tom, We had a wonderful time here in the Blue Ridge Mts. We walked and fished a lot—very relaxing for us. Your place is darling—Thank you. B & S
Wow! What a wonderful time we had here! Everything was in perfect order waiting for our arrival. The scenery was beautiful, green and one morning we even had snow. We will definitely be coming back. Hopefully during football season. Go Hokies! The Ws
Enjoyed the quiet, and the snowfall. New River almost completely iced in—beautiful! The Hs
What a great place for a mini-vacation. The kids and dogs absolutely adored the yard. It is so difficult leaving this tranquil setting. We’ll have to come back when we can stay longer than 2 days! The C's
We loved the bungalow!! It feels homey, cozy, and very relaxing. We’ll have to come back for a longer stay. Our son enjoyed playing with our dog outside, there is plenty of room…and the view is incredible. The H's
The Bungalow is the perfect place for a getaway! The cabin was beautiful and impeccable and the rooms are beautifully decorated. After one of the best night’s sleep, we woke up to the incredible view of the mountains. We will definitely be coming back very soon! S. & D.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our weekend. The bungalow was absolutely perfect for our needs and we loved every aspect of our stay. Thank you so much for providing access to such a lovely place at a very reasonable price. Do you have properties in any other locations? I look forward to my next stay in one of your properties. C.W.
Paige, WOW! What a wonderful time we had. What a beautiful drive from the 81 we had. It was 60 that day, so we just unloaded quickly and sat on the deck for the afternoon. It was so nice! The views spectacular! Friday was a bit chillier, but not bad. We woke up to snow covered ground. It was beautiful, the mountains were covered so the trees just stood out. The trees are blooming and the flowers too! We had a wonderful Easter. The furnishings were great! It did not seem like a cabin, but a wonderful home for us this past weekend, and we would like to say thank you for sharing your wonderful spot with us! L.W.
