About Kathy Spotts

Springfield Farm has been a Spotts family farm for five generations. While it remains a working cattle farm, the Spotts family lives and works in Richmond, VA. Springfield Farm has an important history having been a bivouac site for Stonewall Jackson's valley campaign during the Civil War.

The Creek House is the Spotts' Springfield Farm home. Besides housing our family of five and who knows how many family pets for vacations with friends and holidays, the Creek House has welcomed Virginia Tech families for graduations and vacations, Appalachian Trail Hikers for break weeks, College Sorority gatherings, Mission Leadership weekends for youth groups, family reunions, painting workshops, cross-country bikers and more.

Why Kathy Spotts chose Dublin

Springfield Farm is truly special. Nestled in the beautiful New River Valley, it is a scenic 11 mile drive to Radford, VA, an easy 20 mile jump to the Christiansburg/Blacksburg/Virginia Tech area, a next door neighbor to Claytor Lake and only 50 miles South on I 81 from Roanoke, VA.

Nearby, explore the New River, one of the oldest rivers in North America, known for its beauty and fishing. HIke, bike or ride the New River Trail, Virginia's longest linear trail. The views are exquisite. In Pearisburg, WV, just 30 miles north, hike the Appalachian Trail. Take a trip to Floyd, VA and enjoy their Arts/Craftsmen/Musicians or plan to attend any one of the many festivals in the area.

Or you may decide to stay put and enjoy the farm. Over 500 acres, it's the real experience - cattle at your gate, creeks, barns, mountain ridges, even the sound of peacocks drifting over from up the hill. During every season, the space for outdoor activity is extensive - hiking, biking, running, sledding, cross-country skiing and some of the most beautiful photographic & plein air painting opportunities imagined.

What makes this house unique

The Creek House has all the qualities of home. The interior reflects a simple country charm that's both comfortable and relaxing. The living areas are spacious providing guests wonderful flow for large groups. The dining table sits 10 easily. The front porch is ready for visiting together with a cup of coffee or sharing the day's stories while grilling dinner with cows mooing, the creek gurgling and peacocks calling. Our memories from the farm are far and away our family's favorite.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My family met here to visit our Hokie daughter and attend a VT football game. We chose the rental based on availability and reasonable pricing, and came into our visit with mild concerns about the size of the house and distance to Blacksburg. This place exceeded expectations in every way. Prior to our visit, Kathy was extremely helpful, accommodating and gracious, and the information package she provided was thorough and accurate. Upon arriving (without any problems finding the place due to the excellent directions), we were pleasantly surprised to find that the house was much larger than anticipated, and fully stocked far beyond our past VRBO experiences. As noted by other reviewers, it really felt like staying at the home of friends or family. And although the house is a bit removed from Blacksburg, the rural route avoids game day traffic and we probably had an easier drive than many attending the game.

The location and setting of the house is beautiful and serene, with night skies and lack of noise rare to the east coast. We wish we were there for a longer stay so we could have explored the area more. We highly recommend this place to anyone visiting VT, or just looking for a wonderful getaway in this region.

We loved it

Kathy was a joy to work with. The home and the area were beyond our expectation. My two granddaughters fell in love. We would definitely visit again.

We love this farm!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay here and it was wonderful! We met our NJ family for the Virginia Tech game each fall, and we have thoroughly enjoyed staying at the farm. It has everything we need and the kids love exploring the area (the rope swing is always a hit!). The owners are lovely and so helpful! We can't wait to go back!

A place for peacefulness and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

This place is EXACTLY what I needed, along with the rest of the family. We needed a place of quiet and stillness for rest and attend our son in-law's graduation at VA Tech. This place was perfect! I don't know where to begin. The views are Awesome! I'm a plein air painter and ran out of time, not scenes to paint. The peacefulness was calming and relaxing. We spent so much time on the porch just enjoying the views (cows, hills, mountains, birds, the creek, wildlife, etc). The weather was perfect! The beautiful huge window in the living room was open to such beauty. We saw a deer run along the wooden fence one morning. There were turkeys and geese and fireflies! If you're looking for a place for pure relaxation and quiet, yet close enough to restaurants and shopping, then this is the place. We got out and walked and our daughter climbed the huge hill to the swing. Loved watching the cows graze. They were definitely 'happy cows' :) They grazed around and walked through without a worry in the world. This place reminded me of the peacefulness and scenes of Cades Cove. I wish I lived closer to retreat there anytime I wanted. The cottage is a beautiful older home with so much history. Had games available and a nice kitchen that was well stocked too. The bed was comfortable and just all around what we needed. I highly recommend. Karen Bennett

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable. The scenary is amazing. Very relaxing. We rented the house for my daughters graduation from Virginia Tech. I thought the house was going to be a little too far from Blacksburg but it was totally worth it. The cows around the farm were a real treat for my kids and family. Just loved the place.
