    Good place

    This was an enjoyable place to stay. The weather was rough but that's not the house's fault. I will look to come back during the warmer months and float down the river.

    New River j Riverhouse...

    Was a awesome weekend except for the first two nights of rain... But other than that my wife and I had a really great time. Cozy small house right next to river, had everything we needed except for food items. Property management was helpful with every thing we needed. Very peaceful and relaxing, just what we needed. We will be renting again in the future.... Thanks.

    Quaint Mountain/River Escape

    Blue house was a quaint escape, just perfect for our family of four (adults and teens) as we enjoyed a Winterplace ski weekend. A great place to unwind after the slopes and to just chill with beautiful views of the New River. There's no WIFI in the area so we enjoyed true family time without everyone looking at their phones with puzzle making, movie watching and conversation. But, it's not far from Blacksburg to be able to go to the store or great restaurants. The absolute plus was being able to bring the family dog.

    Beautiful scenery and a relaxing weekend getaway. The host was friendly and easy to reach if needed via messaging through the app or text.

    On the river.

    We wanted a place on the river and this was perfect. Views of the river from the kitchen and a full yard for enjoying the day. We perched our chairs by the river, tucked the dog into her bed by the river and enjoyed reading our books. This was also a great location for us to drive to several Brookie trout fishing locations in the Jefferson National Forest.

    Perfect River House for hiking fishing and seclusion.

    Great house on amazing property surrounded by the most beautiful scenery you can imagine. The mountains and the river are the star of this show. The road the house is on is a nature tour in it own right. Close enough to any outdoor adventure you want but far enough away to be alone if that's what you seek. It was a great trip we will definitely be back to stay at the little blue river house. 🤙🤙🤙🤙🤙

    Beautiful Location

    The house is pretty basic, but perfect for a short getaway. The fireplace was nice, and there was even a little bit of good firewood waiting on us when we checked in. Cell service was limited to outside and maybe one corner of the kitchen, which was fine. The trains might wake you up at night if you're not used to it, but the views of the river and mountains from the patio were amazing. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
