"Spring Lodge" was recently renovated in a modern farmhouse style, and inspired by the colors and feel of the US National Parks. With nature and wildlife a focal point, and trees, flowers, and grapevines above the creek at the bottom of the property, you can choose to walk the area - or enjoy it via your rocking chair on the 60 foot porch that is reminiscent of the lodges out West. A quiet spot at the end of the road, this location is convenient to enjoying the highlights in the High Country!
Our location is convenient to exploring all areas of the High Country, providing great access to restaurants, the university, outdoor activities, etc. while providing a location that is "away from it all." Enjoy a sophisticated resort-type retreat vacation. The center of the 1700+ square foot lodge is an open floor plan with a spacious light kitchen and large center island and a eight foot farmhouse dining table nearby. The vaulted ceiling has a rock fireplace in the main living area. Watch the sunset from the porch in nice weather, or in the winter, from the inside recliner chairs while sipping hot chocolate or a warm brandy.
Vegetables in back of the house, and fruit trees on the property, available in season, may be available for picking upon request. Creek at bottom of hill can be accessed. Blue Ridge Parkway is approximately 1 mile via Phillips Gap access. New River for canoeing/kayaking is down 1 mile on Pine Swamp, then Conley Cheek Road. Both Boone and West Jefferson are about 20 minutes away for dining and entertainment; skiing also (in season) is further past Boone.
