Spacious and provided everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying here during my son’s graduation weekend. The layout of the house provided for separate areas to satisfy the needs of the family. We had children playing board games in the sun room, our young adults relaxing on one side of the deck, my siblings playing games on the other side, and the remainder scattered through the house spending time with each other. Erika also provided toiletries just in case we forgot something (which we did). Her kitchen is fully equipped and there were multiple refrigerators to accommodate our party prep and Mother’s Day breakfast. I would definitely recommend this home and would rent again if I am back in the Blacksburg area. Thanks again for your hospitality and timely correspondence. We are happy we also had a chance to meet you as well.

Son's graduation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely and spacious home during the week of Christmas. We flew up for my son's graduation from VT he received his Doctorate. Seven of our family members had a great time and loved the area. Erika was more than a gracious host. She left us a well organized booklet with pictures of the items in the kitchen. It was easy to find everything. Loved the heated floors in the master bath and sunroom.

Great location, delightfully spacious, safe environment, pure pleasure!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight people stayed in this three-floor 4,500-square foot house with access to most areas. We were privileged to meet the owners, a family of five who know how to live graciously and comfortably. Many thanks to the Erika Henry and her husband and children for allowing us this opportunity.

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our out-of-town family members stayed for 4-5 nights at this beautiful home that turned out to be a perfect location for all functions we needed to attend for a family wedding in late August 2017. We were able to please all members as far as sleeping arrangements and because some came in from Wisconsin, some from California and some from Arizona, it was nice to have all under one roof to be able to visit. Our communication with the owner was handled well throughout our stay. I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a spacious home with great ammenities.

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!
