Common Areas


We have available to our guests many areas where they can relax by the fireplace, enjoy group discussions, read a book, write, draw or otherwise enjoy themselves. There are porches and rocking chairs, patios and tables, lawn furniture and coy ponds with waterfalls. Inside is the formal parlor area, a wonderful library, Tavern room and Virginia Tech Room. Board games, books, chess, and other distractions are yours for the asking. Breakfast is served in the dinning room where great family gatherings have taken place and of course the kitchen is always a focal point. You will feel completely at Home in our Home. Welcome.
