There are so many pleasant things to do in our area; wine tasting, enjoying the beautiful views, hiking, biking, fishing or just relaxing. We are also only 5 miles from two wineries on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Chateau Morrisette and Villa Appalaccia. They offer tasting and tours, and the restaurant at the Chateau Morrissette has an excellent reputation. Nearby Mabry Mill is the most visited attraction on the Parkway. There are quite a few good restaurants in the nearby town of Floyd that offer tasty meals as well as fine live music; Oddfellas Cantina, the Pine Tavern, Natasha's Market Cafe, and
Mickey G's Italian Bistro to name a few. You also don’t want to miss the Friday night bluegrass jamboree at the Floyd Country Store.
