Celebrated 60th Weding Annniversary!!!. Loved it...especially the deck and fenced in yard (kids)

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for my In-laws 60th wedding anniversary. Stayed 3 nights. The kitchen, eating area, and dining room flow very easily....great for family meals.....AND THE DECK...AWESOME SET UP...... I enjoyed my coffee in the morning just enjoying the view of the mountains.... and the quiet before everyone got up. The little kids in our family (and their parents) really enjoyed the fenced in back yard.....we spent all day Saturday at the house...in the yard and on the patio underneath the deck.....then spent the evening grilling and eating on the deck and then just setting around talking on the deck. We had a great time!!

Perfect for Graduation Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 family members from across the country join us to celebrate our son's graduation from VT and commissioning into the US Air Force this past weekend. Fortunately, we were able to stay in this home which offered an opportunity to enjoy the company in one place and to NOT have to fight the lines at local restaurants. The owner - Erika - was very organized and made the experience easy! The location to campus was such a plus as we had multiple events. We were able to go back to the house for an hour or so before the next one. I highly recommend you consider this home for your next Hokie event!

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful!! Our whole family stayed there and we never felt crowded. The room are all big including the bathrooms and what a porch! The view is probably the best in Blacksburg!! Everything went smoothly and Erika was very helpful. The location is very close to town. There is also plenty of parking in the garage and the driveway. We had 7 cars and they were all in the driveway. I highly recommend this place!!!

Beautiful home, well furnished for our group of 11. Had a great time and a Hokie victory.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed and more. Easy communication, check in/out. Perfect setting for a reunion of alumni friends. Really nice place. We are already talking about returning. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Great Place for Virginia Tech Graduation!

  • 5 of 5

Last year, after finding that the local hotels were already booked for graduation weekend, I went to my go-to website, VRBO. The listing for this house seemed like it would do nicely for our extended family to be together for graduation. Once again, VRBO came through! The house is well-kept, convenient to campus, with beautiful views. We had 14 overnight and all but 3 had real beds. They slept on the cushy sofas, 2 upstairs and 1 down. They were from age 15 through 87. The homeowners were great to work with, paying attention to the details. It was a very nice home away! We highly recommend "Home Away from Home for Hokies"!

Perfect House for our Visit

  • 5 of 5

We had family members arriving from several locations for a wedding in Blacksburg and this was a perfect place for everyone to stay.. the house is large enough for everyone to feel comfortable and there is plenty of room for storing luggage, etc. The finished basement gave us an additional gathering place that was nice with such a large group. A great deck with a fabulous view! Also, Erika Henry was very organized and efficient -- she responded to emails quickly and made sure everything was taken care of for our arrival. We would definitely stay here again.
