“Perfect cabin close to campus”
Reviewed 25 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cabin had everything we needed and more. It would be great for a family or group of friends. I wish we could have stayed longer.

“Pictures do not do justice”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

to the beauty of this place!

Rented a five-day stay at Buck Lair. Nestled in a private hollow just minutes from Blacksburg, comfort and relaxation are what this rental is about.

We were greeted on our arrival by a cooled home, which after a 100-mile ride in 90 plus degree weather was very appreciated! Upon opening the door, we found music playing, an assortment of wines and beers, along with soft drinks and water in the fridge. A yummy pastry was waiting for us as well.

The furnishings are comfortable, eclectic, and cozy. Beds are very comfortable.

Everything you could want or need to cook is provided, from the oils and spices to a large variety of plates and serve ware.

There are three tvs in this home if you wish to disregard the calm and cozy porch with rockers. We spent a lot of time there listening to the babbling brook below. So peaceful and calm.

Along with the tvs that have direct tv service, there were dvds of recent films provided as well.

We appreciated that there is a washer and dryer in the home as we were traveling on motorcycles with limited space for clothes. Also, there is a dishwasher. As I said, everything that one would want was provided.

We had to reach out to the owner, Gerald, for a few minor issues regarding how to work machines, etc., and he couldn't have been more accommodating. It was very nice chatting with him!

This cabin is located minutes away from Blacksburg with all the conveniences of a larger town.

We were so very happy to have a beautiful, comfortable, convenient home to stay in during our vacation. Gerald and Ruth, who built this cabin themselves, did an outstanding job and are excellent hosts. They have thought of everything one could want or need in Buck Lair.

I hope to be able to visit here again.

“Great location, family friendly environment, close to town.”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cabin was more beautiful in person than the pictures showed! The nature surrounding the cabin is so fun and we really enjoyed the pavilion and fire pit!
