08/25/09 Positive As so many others have commented, this is an exceptional house. We've rented vacation houses in many parts of the US including fantastic red rock views in Sedona AZ and spectacular ocean views on the California coast. Laurel Point tops our list of "must stay" vacation rentals.

The house is very private. Other than nature, seldom is a sound heard. The expansive deck has unlimited views of mountain ranges for miles and miles. The sunrises are just awesome. The
layout of the house is perfect. The three bedrooms are forever apart. The kitchen is well-equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and accessories. The vast windows, in addition to providing the excellent views, also bathe the interior in warm light. All-in-all, fantastic. A+!!

The Sprinkel family highly recommends this vacation rental in the mountains of Virginia just off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. You will NOT be disappointed. Enjoy!!

10/08/08 Positive  Bill & Mary, What a lovely place you have! The house is open/spacious and every room is beautifully furnished and VERY comfortable. The views from the deck are truly the BEST we've ever seen. Thank you for opening up your wonderful home to us and sharing your piece of paradise. We love Laurel Point and want to return again and again!

09/30/08 Positive Bill and Mary, Your house has got to be one of the best houses listed on VRBO! There are so many wonderful amenities that I truly don't know where to start. I was searching a place to get away from the world to write my second book, and I found it sitting on top of that mountain. If "city" people are searching an escape from the rat race, they need to look no further than your house.

Thank goodness I had your directions! To anyone who will be renting this beautiful house, do not try to use a Garmin GPS device, unless your car can take flight. I would still be searching for the house if I had to rely on Ms. Garmin's guidance!

The house was beyond what I had imagined from the description. Everything was well appointed and beautiful!!!! Since I was there to write I didn't use the wing with two bedroom suites, pantry big enough to put a bed in and huge laundry room. The room with the double beds in it is so large that the beds look almost twin size. The other bedroom with the mirrored bed complex is sure to appeal to many couples. Both rooms, like the rest of the house are spacious!

The great room is exactly that, GREAT! I honestly don't think I have ever seen so many light switches! Thank you for labeling them for the renters. The lighting in this house is wonderful, recessed, spotlighted, soft or bright, take your pick. From this room you feel like you own the world, the 75 mile view lures you to the windows each time you pass through.

I could imagine big families in this room or romance by the fireplace complete with push button remote for the ones who are challenged fire builders, like me. I didn't spend time watching the big TV or the excellent sound system. You have a lot of games, and books of all kinds.

I spent most of my time in the beautiful cedar lined office, in that leather chair. Thank you for having such great WIFI! It was fast and stayed online the whole time I was there.

The master suite with a sleigh bed, a walk in closet, two different sink vanities, Jacuzzi tub, shower and private toilet area was wonderful.

A double deck area that spans the entire length of the house connects all the rooms. No matter where you are, the world is at your feet. I went to bed at night looking at the lights below and woke up to the sun shining over mountain ranges. Each person will find their own feelings about this view, as it is so mesmerizing that it leaves you awe struck and speechless.

Thank you for the opportunity to use your house. For anyone wanting a place to write, this is it! It would be a perfect place for a writing group to congregate, families for reunions or a group of friends, especially if they like wineries.

I hope that, I can come back one day and spend time relaxing instead of working. Either way, this house with that view, is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places on earth.

06/04/07 Positive  Six of us spent the weekend celebrating my younger brother's 50th birthday (I'm the older one, and better looking, too). We took in Floyd on Friday night, visited both wineries, some hiking and did some fine road bicycling along the parkway (hills build character!). The villa is fantastic - we were able to cook some wonderful meals, spend time on the deck wishing we could fly, sat by the fire and even fired up the laptop to do a bit of mountain surfing. Highly recommended place to spend some time - and the owners are terrific as well. We'll be back in July!

02/12/07 Positive  My family celebrated our mother's 80th birthday in December at Laurel Point Villa. Everything was absolutely perfect!!!! We had an afternoon cocktail of around 60 people and had more than enough room. The weather was gorgeous and everyone enjoyed the unbelievable view. Needless to say, the party was a huge success!!
Three of our families stayed in the villa the entire weekend and loved every minute of it. The house has every single amenity you could ever desire. All I can say is that it was a weekend that no one in my family will ever forget!!!!! You won't be disappointed.
