Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Pictures coming soon of newly remodeled great room. Freshly painted from floor to 30 ft. ceiling, quartzite counter tops and backsplash, tiled kitchen and dinning room, expanded kitchen, new bar area as well as finishing touches like larger kitchen, induction stove, new windows, fans and updated lighting. Pantry moved into kitchen and old pantry converted to full bath. All work done by Fred Brady who designed and built Laurel Point Cottage VRBO.com/708246. Like the scenery my pictures won't do it justice.

LAUREL POINT VILLA

A perfect getaway in beautiful Meadows of Dan, Virginia. The 4000 square feet home features 3 large bedrooms with privacy, one king, one queen and two doubles, each with full private bath and tub, as well as door to the deck. It's just like having three master bedrooms. Need even more room. Combine VRBO.com/708246 which is next door. It adds a two bedrooms and two bath cottage with similar long range views, two decks, chef designed kitchen, radiant floor heat and other amenities.

The 1400 square feet great room has gas fireplace and huge windows to enjoy the 75 mile views from it's ridge location. Full kitchen features new refrigerator, Jenn-Air stove, coffee maker, dishwasher and microwave. You can play CD's and DVD's on the Bose 3.2.1 entertainment system.

House is located near North Carolina - Virginia border about 4 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. For those interested in wine and viticulture, Chateau Morrisette, Virginia's largest winery, and Villa Appalachia are within five miles of the property. Chateau Morrisette features musical festival throughout the summer, as well as free Sunday concerts on the grounds. No trip would be complete without a Friday night in Floyd. The Country Store is alive with flat footing and bluegrass bands form in the alleys and on corners. It is a must see.

Experience nature's gradeur from the expansive deck with it's long views. Spring is showy with Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron, summer abounds with the flowery garden and aviary acrobatics and fall is spectacular as color drifts down the mountains side.

Get out in nature with easy walks from the Parkway like Smart View or stroll down the well worn path beside in Rock Castle Gorge. An exhilarating hike to Buffalo Mountain (once owned by the Robet E. and Harry Lighthorse Lee's family) can be made on a well graded trail leading to the almost 4000 foot peak and expansive 360 degree view.

Visit Fairy Stone Lake and experience the only place to find the mystical Fairy Stone or sink your hook in the Keibler Valley for mountain trout. Bike the Virginia Creeper Trail, Galax Trail or Blue Ridge Parkway. Raft the Dan River and experience the Zip Line nearby. This area has it all.

Golfers, take a swing at Primland's Highland Course rated by Golf Digest as the best new public course in 2006. Add Olde Mills Golf Resort and Great Oaks in Floyd, all within 15 miles of the house.

About Bill Day

We're a North Carolina guy and a Kentucky girl who lives in Florida and has a beautiful home in Virginia. And yes, I have done the impossible and converted a Kentucky girl to a Tar Heel basketball fan.

Bill Day purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill Day chose Meadows of Dan

While dating, we visited a Christmas Tree farm in Meadows of Dan and loved it. We decided to get married there and in looking for a minister, we also looked for land. We wanted long range views and finally found a lot in Edgeview Estates just off Belcher Mountain Road.

In 2005, I was hating my job and decided to try one more backpacking trip. Went to the Smokies and came out with a couple of days left on my vacation. I decided to go up to our lot and take a sunrise picture that I could put in my office to keep my spirits up. I drove in early one morning and set up the tripod and waited for the sun. It was okay, but not a trophy shot. Packed everything up and headed back up Belcher mountain. Between my comings and goings, someone had put a for sale sign in front of Laurel Point.

I met the owners at the house and it was a glorious day. I think I could see Canada. I was known as a fierce negotiator but I was putty in their hands. I knew I had to have that house. They came down a little and I offered them my sweaty handshake. It takes nerves to buy a house without your new bride having seen it. Obviously all is well that ends well.

We decided that the worst thing we could do with the house is just let it sit there. We're 11 hours away and are lucky to visit 2 or 3 times a year. So far we have had excellent guests and feel good about sharing our house.

Hope you come and visit. It's beautiful during the spring, cool in the summer and spectacular in the fall. Notice I didn't mention winter. A little too cool for this Tar Heel converted Floridian.

Bill

What makes this house unique

Backpacked for over 30 years and the view from the deck is in my top five favorites in the Southern Appalachians .

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Guest Book: Bill and Mary, your dream house is fantastic. The place has

wonderful amenities and rooms that are so spacious and sereene - and so

comfortable. We loved the deck and the spectacular view. I'd come back any

time of year knowing it would be beautiful. We did the local sites. "Oddfellas"

on a Friday night is a must. Thanks so much. We hope to return. (I shall

return). P.S. When I first got here I slept dreaming the usual mixed-up, lost,

frenetic dreams. After a few serene days and nights I dreamt sweet, happy

dreams.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Mary thank you again for the overwhelming hospitality. The house and view was absolutely amazing and we hope to be back soon. The details you provided as we were planning our trip made things very helpful and we honestly can’t say in words how grateful we are to find your jewel of a home.

Perfect Mountain Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Both my husband and I lost our fathers during the holiday season (my dad, just one year ago). So we needed to do something different for the holidays. Laurel Point Villa and its gracious owners. Bill and Mary Day, gave us everything, and more than we could have hoped for! The sunrises and sunsets are something we will remember -- forever. The radiant heated floors were much-appreciated when we claimed the award for "coldest stay by a tenant" on January 2, 2018. Bill kept us informed of the various events in the area, and he called on two separate occasions to make certain everything was okay with us. When we had to leave a day early because of the "bombogenesis" in South Carolina (our home), Bill was genuinely disappointed for us and concerned about our safety. Laurel Point Villa reflects this GENUINE concern for people and their joy, comfort, and peace. I cannot say enough good things, except this: "We'll Be Back."

Beyond excellent! A memorable Thanksgiving.

  • 5 of 5

This home is equipped with anything you would need, comfortable and spacious for a large group. There were ten of us. We rented another lovely home nearby to help with sleeping arrangements as the Villa sleeps eight. All of us hung together here though and celebrated Thanksgiving around a table that was ample for all. The kitchen provided modern appliances and plenty of room for several of us to cook together. The views from the deck of the meadows below and mountains beyond are to die for. Sunrise a real treat. And in the evening with all the lights out - the stars!! The Big Dipper was framed, as if up close, in the expansive windows of the living room in the wee hours of the morning (3:30 - 5:00). It was truly magical and awesome. Speaking of awesome, I can't say enough about our hosts. Bill provided the most thorough details about the area and places of interest as well as all aspects of the house. He provided directions to and from the Villa and all sorts of places with personal reviews. I confess most of us didn't go anywhere because we were so happy being there and hanging out together. Beds were comfy - tempurpedic in the master with soft furry blankets. Radiant floor heating, delightful. Electric fireplace so inviting and cozy. You would never know it was in the 20s outside. Plenty of room for parking and handicap accessibility. Husband uses an electric wheelchair and doorways were large enough to glide through. Our dogs were in attendance as well and they had plenty of room to stretch out. Truly couldn't have been better. We hope to return. Maybe next time we will check out some of the local spots. Maybe. 😉?�

Awesome Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

It was just 2 couples and what an awesome trip. We planned to take our meals and everything was great. The grill and state of the art kitchen equipment, anything we needed was there. Bill and Mary what an unbelievable place you have. To wake up to that sunrise every morning is a blessing. Thank you for opening up your house. We are already planning next year. Thanks again.

Just Unpack

  • 5 of 5

Great Great property, location and view unparalleled. Mr.Day was very accommodating and really, all you have to do is unpack to enjoy - lots to do in the area but the view from the deck was the most enjoyable. A place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle.
