About the property

Nestled on seven wooded acres of beautiful Virginia mountain side, two miles from the Virginia Tech campus, Cedar Run Guest House is the premier accommodation choice for the discerning traveler. Hosts Scarlett and Cavan provide a welcoming oasis of tranquility. Let us spoil you with a delicious home cooked breakfast at your request. Reveling in the beauty of nature, Cedar Run Guest House is south facing utilizing the passive solar gain of the winter sun and the cooling aspects of summer shade. Rain water collected from the metal roof irrigates the garden. The guest house’s main bed is dressed in a bedspread of ferns and supported by a queen size organic latex mattress providing a sound nights slumber. Linens are freshly laundered in the afternoon sun, and all cleaning products are biodegradable/ non toxic. As lovers of craft and beauty we show case work of local artisans and farmers. What speaks local more than morning coffee in a Blacksburg potters’ cup, an omelet filled with Sally’s duck eggs, and resting your luggage upon a locally harvested red cedar luggage rack. The stories of the area permeate through your stay. Perfect for Parents, Alumni, Professors, and the business traveler visiting Blacksburg.

About Scarlett Williams

My husband and I are attempting to create a very lovely life on 8 acres in Blacksburg. We host vistors year round in our beautiful in law suite. Cavan is an artist. I have a small counseling practice. We have a three year old and are lucky enough to share three meals a day together most days of the week. Cavan is also an excellent chef.

Scarlett Williams purchased this studio in 2012

Why Scarlett Williams chose Blacksburg

Having done my fair share of traveling, the guest house is a beautiful place to stay. My favorite spot is a bungalow in Costa Rica. I have attempted to create the same feel with the guesthouse. Quite- peaceful-relaxing- contemplative-beautiful.I felt so refreshed after my time in Costa Rica and I hope some of that same feel goes with you upon leaving the guesthouse.

What makes this studio unique

We are family owned and operated.

Calm, convenient, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place for a couple to escape to--a calm, light, private space that's close to what the area has to offer in the way of trails and woodland mountain views, but also very close to town and all its attractions and amenities. The "guesthouse" is the annex--completely self-contained, with its own entrance--to the main house, where the owner, Scarlett, and her small family live. Scarlett and Cavan are friendly and well-organized, but do not intrude in any way during your stay. The photos tell you what the interior is like: uncluttered simple decor, large windows, expanses of wood floor, and large indoor plants. Ideal for yoga and meditation as well as cozy conversation and shared meals. The bed is very comfortable. If lack of privacy and sharing the single bathroom are not concerns, those sofabeds could accommodate a few more people. We were there in the most frigid part of winter, but the place was always warm (heating was adjustable) and there was plenty of hot water, lots of clean towels, bedding, pillows, Internet, and so on. There is no TV! I loved that. The kitchen has all the basic equipment, nothing fancy but all of good quality, and fine for those (like us) who prefer preparing their own meals. We have stayed there twice and will certainly come again.

Loved Cedar Run!

  • 5 of 5

We were down for Parent's Weekend at VT and had a wonderful visit. Cedar Run is spacious, comfortable, and relaxing. The home is lovely and set in the woods - which, we loved. Cedar Run provided everything we needed and we will be back!

Quiet, rustic, comfortable, clean, cozy, affordable and close to Va Tech

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for what we needed. It was comfortable (even the futons), clean, quiet and homey. There was no tv - and we liked that!

We were there for the Va Tech vs. Clemson football game and mostly just slept there. The owners were really nice. We loved their dog Ester who hung out with us Saturday morning. Will definitely stay there again. The price was very affordable especially compared to what other places charge on game weekends.

Great experience! Perfect house for our mountain getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The space is open and comfortable. We have 2 young children and it was a perfect place to stay while we visited Virginia Tech. The beds are unsupportive and we all slept great. The kitchen had everything we needed. The high ceilings, minimal clutter, and large deck reminded us of our time in Costa Rica.

Scarlett was helpful and generous. Cavan's artwork added personality to the space. We hope to stay here every time we visit!
