    The stay was great! the location was picturesque, it was nestled on the forest hill, you can see the sunset right over the Appalachian mountains. The cabin has plenty of room for everyone to have their own personal space while also being able to enjoy everyone's company.

    The rooms were perfect. Since the walls are thin we felt it was noisy in the house.

    This place was really nice. Towels, linens, all of the cookware you need, clean and the price is right. We had a few days of rain, but the cabin had so much space and stuff to keep us busy. The neighborhood is very clean. New gas fire pit was great, we had samores. Awesome time with friends.

    My husband and I wanted a quiet place with beautiful views to get away for a few days. We were so pleased with the Hickory House. It was everything the review said it was and more. It was in a beautiful location with a wonderful view of the mountains. It was in a central location to many activities. I can’t wait to visit again!

    Tree House

    4/5 Stayed Sep 21, 2020
    Submitted Oct 10, 2020

    We called it the tree house because the upper deck sits up in the trees. Nice relaxing view from there. Very comfortable place to spend a little off the beaten path. Somewhat dated but nice. We ate in more than we normally would due to the virus. Cooking ware could use a good cleaning or even replacement.

    Exceded our expectations, the house was very clean and has everything you need to have a great time!

    What a wonderful experience we had at Hickory House outside Basye, Virginia. Instead of giving Christmas presents this year, we decided to do a family getway -- away from the busyness of our day-to-day lives. This location was PERFECT in every way. Susan was amazing to work with. She was available to answer questions and provide help. The property provided exactly what we needed; it was warm, comfortable, and cozy for a December vacation. Each member of our family has indicated a desire to go back for another stay at this location, possibly making it an ongoing tradition.
