Homeowner Response:
The house is large enough to handle many people, however, in the future rentals are for accommodations and not large parties. Our intention is to provide a relaxing home-like setting and is not set up for huge groups. Woodberry Inn (540-593-2567) and Chateau Morrisette (540-593-2865) have rooms for large parties as well as provisions for catering.

01/31/07 Positive  My family spent the most wonderful Thanksgiving at Laurel Point Villa. It was the perfect location for a family holiday celebration! The home is absolutely beautiful and so spacious. I think what sets this house apart from others is its size and its view. The three bedrooms are large and private, and each has its own bathroom and direct access to the deck. No one had to do with a lesser room. And the view is fantastic. We spent time each night on the deck with mugs of hot chocolate watching the valley light up below, the sky light up above and counting shooting stars. It was like we were the only ones on the mountain. What an experience!

During our three days it seems we mostly ate and enjoyed the peace and quiet. But on Saturday, my mother, sister and I visited Chateau Morrisette and Mabry Mill while my husband and son made the short drive down to NC for some ACC basketball. It's a perfect home for chilling, and yet there is plenty to do in the area if you want to get out and explore.

I'm trying to coordinate schedules for our next trip to Laurel Point. We have traveled a lot and seen a lot of pretty places, but this home truly stands out as a special place.

From Guest Book: The house was everything you said it was and more. The
quiet was so relaxing and the views fantastic. My son and his wife absolutely
adored it (and kept saying they sure hope we were coming here again). We had
great fun at Oddfellas, the Woodberry Inn and Chateau Morrisette. We also had
great meals in the "Laurel Point Kitchen". Thanks so much for sharing your
treasure.

From Guest Book: Bill and Mary, your dream house is fantastic. The place has
wonderful amenities and rooms that are so spacious and sereene - and so
comfortable. We loved the deck and the spectacular view. I'd come back any
time of year knowing it would be beautiful. We did the local sites. "Oddfellas"
on a Friday night is a must. Thanks so much. We hope to return. (I shall
return). P.S. When I first got here I slept dreaming the usual mixed-up, lost,
frenetic dreams. After a few serene days and nights I dreamt sweet, happy
dreams.

From Guest Book: We have so enjoyed our wonderful visit to this paradise. What
a view and what a fantastic house. We have thoroughly enjoyed every minute
and would love to see it in spring.

This is life as it was meant to be lived...Quiet contemplation. Beatuy everywhere
and bluegrass music. It doesn't get much better. We love your house, your
mountain, Patrick County and the Blue Ridge Highway. Thank you for the
introduction to this area.

From Guest Book: Womw! What a place!! Peace, quiet, up-close scenery and
breathtaking views.

Our only regret is we only had two days, but they were great. Hope someday to
get a chance to come bac. Any season would be wonderful.

08/04/06 Positive  An extraordinary home with an extraordinary view in an extraordinary setting! My wife and I were fortunate to have stayed at Laurel Point and this mountain paradise exceeds all expectations. This spectacular home is beautifully furnished and very spacious. All comforts are present from the heated floors, the amazing kitchen, the private bathrooms, to the decks that are accessible directly from every bedroom. If you are looking for a true estate retreat, this is the one for you. And just wait until you see the view...unbelievable!

Will return!

07/25/06 Positive  I stayed here while visiting from Australia and was spellbound by the magnificent views and the lovely, spacious home itself. As a travel and tourism writer, I get to stay in some fine places around the world, but this one really stays in my mind. Waking up, strolling onto the back deck, breathing the mountain air and viewing the grand scenery in the morning is the most exhilarating and delightful way to start a day. The home itself could easily accommodate a family – I only wish that my wife and two sons (aged 7 and 10) had been along with me on my visit to enjoy it. The Blue Ridge Parkway, with its varied vegetation, is an enchanting part of the world – and one I had not previously known much about. I hope to return!
