Get Away, Relax, and Unwind

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
This cozy home is located in the small town of Grottoes, Virginia nestled between the shade of an old Oak Tree, Maple Tree, and Pine Trees. It sits on approximately three acres with a large field behind the house where kids can run and play. In the Spring and Summer, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the rose garden in the back yard. My father passed away in March of 2017 and left behind the old home place. He spent many hours in his rose garden and enjoyed delivering them to his wife in the nursing home. Since his passing, I've completely renovated this beautiful old home on Dogwood Ave and have also began to learn the art of growing roses. My father loved to help others and loved people and I am carrying on the tradition of helping others by offering a location where folks can come away, relax and unwind. There are two lovely bedrooms; one of which has two antique brass beds. There is a special room in memory of my father who was an avid hunter and fisherman. In addition, there are games for all ages and many books and memorabilia to enjoy. The kitchen has a modern yet retro look to it. There is an old red Formica table that seats four. You can also sit and enjoy the big screen TV while seated at the bar in the kitchen. There is a coffee station completely furnished with coffee and teas to choose from.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

Lovely home in Grottoes, VA
My husband, Duke daughter and I enjoyed JMU Family Weekend at Karen's lovely home. Such a gracious host, well equipped kitchen, extremely clean home! We appreciated the thoughtfulness of providing breakfast items so we could make the most of our time together. Since we are only in our first year of the JMU experience, we WILL be back!

5/5 Excellent

Comfortable, clean, great communication, lovely decor.
My daughter traveled from New Jersey and I flew in from Colorado. We were attending a family wedding and it was also a mother/daughter time together trip. Karen was great to communicate with and provided a wonderful location for our visit. I would highly recommend and in fact on my next visit to family in the area, I will be sure to book our stay. Thank you for everything Karen!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful stay!
The house was just wonderful! Quiet, relaxing and everything we needed for our annual wine weekend! Karen had the fridge stocked with a few essentials, eggs, coffee creamer, juice and k-cups for the coffee maker. It was a lovely long weekend and if we are ever back in the area we will be sure to stay here!
