Comments From Our Guests

"Our fifth year and running for the Floyd Yoga Jam. See you same time next year."
June 29-July 6, 2016
"After vacationing at the Floyd Hotel for the past ten years, we decided to try something a bit different. We are not disappointed by our choice to stay this past week at the Bobcat Bungalow!
As soon as we pulled up to the cabin, we all knew we were in for a treat. The quiet, serene hills, beautiful views, and amazing trails were more than we expected. The cabin itself was more luxurious than expected as well.
It is very well kept, very open and spacious to accomodate a few guests we had for the fourth of July, as well as lovely and peaceful for the nights - watching the Milky Way float by. We even
brought my son's telescope to see Jupiter (I think) and a few other stars. Even though it stormed (pretty heavily) one night, it was beautiful to watch the lightning from the porch, rocking in the rocking chairs.
Oh, and did I mention I want to pack that Jacuzzi up and take it with be back to Jersey!! All in all best family vacation ever! Thanks again for an enjoyable stay!!! See you again next year for our wedding."
Brooklawn, New Jersey

"We had a great anniversary weekend. The temp was nice and cool on the weekend and this was the peace and quiet we needed. Floyd was a cute town and Christiansburg had everything you could need.
Thanks again for the use of your cabin."
May 27-30, 2016
"We had a wonderful, long Memorial Day weekend staying in Bobcat Bungalow. This was our third stay here, and we loved it! We hiked to Dragon's Tooth on the Appalachian Trail. Then we enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Homeplace.
The next day we visited Chateau Morrisette. We enjoyed some wine, cheese and nuts while taking in the gorgeous scenery. Later that evening, we grilled out and had smores for dessert by the fire pit.
We really enjoyed relaxing in this cozy cottage. Thank you!"
May 1-3, 2016
"It's hard to believe that we first came here in August 2007, first just the two of us. Then we came with 7 of our friends in March 2009. Now we're back with our 2 1/2 year old daughter. This was the perfect place to take her on our first family vacation ever. You just cannot beat the
beautiful, quiet, hilly countryside, especially when you're with the ones you love. Thank you for taking such great care of the cabin! We've rented a number of cabins in Ohio and they usually don't stand up to the wear and tear over the years. But yours definitely does!
All our best."
April 29 - May 1, 2016
"It was another perfect weekend in the mountains (our 4th visit here!) and again we thank you so much for making this possible. This time, we were so happy to bring my parents along and they loved averything as much as we do. We spent a lot of time talking, laughing, and enjoying the view from the porch.
We built the best campfire every, hiked the trails, and finished a 500 piece puzzle! It was my mom's birthday on the 28th and we were so glad we could celebrate together here. We're already looking forward to the next visit. See you
"Thanks so much for the details - we enjoyed playing Blockhead w/ the grandsons and the porch is a peaceful place- from the early morning w/ coffee to the drizzly evening - a wonderful opportunity to visit and make mamories.
Can't compliment you all enough on the thought and care you put into this cabin. We hope to be back."

January 1-3, 2016

Chapel Hill, NC
October 11-12, 2015
"Thanks so much. Our stay in the Bobcat Bungalow was just what we wanted and more. We were fortunate in that weather could not have been much better. We loved walking aroung the property and talking to the cows and
taking in some absolutely beautiful fall colors! The sunset, sunrise and especially the night sky with the stars was very special. Our trip to the Floyd Country store for the Sunday afternoon jam session will never be forgotten.
The cabin itself was so inviting and comfortable. We felt really relaxed and had everything we needed. We will miss the big room. We hope to be back some time, all the best."

We had a relaxing visit!"

"Great place to wind down after a week with family in Virginia Beach. Cabin is well kept and the town of Floyd was great. Our stay was very relaxing."
June 21-28, 2015
"The moon, the stars, the fireflies, the campfire, the exciting storms and cool mountain breezes... Breakfasts on the porch and hilarious games at the table at night...The well-equipped kitchen, spacious living area, and comfortable bedrooms...
All these and more made our stay here so relaxing! We enjoyed our stay so much two years ago that we came back and brought friends. The trip up and down from the car was challenging, but one inside, the cabin was pretty handicap-friendsly."
June 21, 2015
"We came for our 21st anniversary. Got to see a wonderful rainbow from the porch.""
May 30, 2015
"Peace. Time finally did not rule our days. Sleep when we were tired, get up when we were rested. Napped, read voraciously. Crocheted. Hiked. Enjoyed being alone together - not having to share one another with anyone else!
Thank you for this haven. We celebrated our 17th fabulous wedding anniversary here. Life hands everyone ups and downs but with the right person and God in your life it can be well with your soul. Bayberry Soap will always make be think of our time here."
May 17, 2015

May 12, 2015
"We arrived at Bobcat Bungalow after our exciting yet hairy trip in MYC and Washington. This place was a welcome retreat of peaceful relaxation and we absolutely adored our short time here! We wish it could have been longer.

"We bid on a nigh's stay here at Mardi Gras in Floyd in Feb. of this year. It was a silent auction. We had fun there and were tickled that we won the bid for a night's stay here. The cabin and view is beautiful. We enjoyed the Jaccuzzi and grill and wood stove very much. Didn't have time to do firepit. We will be back though.
Had a great time!"

"Came for our girl's weekend and had a blast! The cabin is wonderful and fully equipped with all the amenities! We recomment taking a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway for some beautiful scenery.
We also recommend doing a wine tasting at Chatear Morrisette. It's lovely. If you don't mind an hou's drive and enjoy hiking, McAfee Knob cannot be beat! The view is incredible. I've had a wonderful time
and enjoyed a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Can't thank you enough."

coming back. P.S. The trees were at peak color this weekend! They were gorgeous!!"

"It took us exactly two seconds to plan our wedding anniversary celebration vacation this year. We all knew that we wanted to repeat last year's celebration and spend a weekend in Bobcat Bungalow. The boys are 5 and 2 this year and we are celebrating our 7th anniversary.
what a beautiful weekend! It was chilly and the skies were clear. We ventured out to Sinkland Farms and had a blast at their pumpkin festival. We spent the rest of the weekend in the beautiful cabin and loved every minute of it.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful little part of this world with us. See you next year!"

It has been a wonderful place for two little boys to explore. We hope to return again someday."
October 4-6, 2013
"We had an incredible first stay at the Bobcat Bungalow. We enjoyed the hiking trails and explored the beautiful surrounding area. We visited Chateau Morrisette, where we purchased some
delicious wine. We also purchased some local apples, honey, and tickles. Our stay was very relaxing and just what the doctor ordered. We enjoyed the beautiful mountain views and lots of wildlife.
On our last night here we had a fire in the firepit and made s'mores. We love this cabin and all that it offers. We plan to make this a yearly tradition for our family."
September 27-29, 2013

"I grew up coming to Indian Valley for weeks at a time in summer.
My grandparent's 100 acre farm was at Mack's Mountain and we would
take walks up the mountain. What wonderful memories."

August 1-3, 2013

a real treat; peaceful and truly serene. We felt like mother nature
was in our living room. What a wonderful relaxing and most enjoyable

inviting hospitality will not be forgotten. We hope to see you
again in our life's journeys. The best to you and your family!
Thanks soooo much."
Cobleskill, New York

"This place is amazing! Thunderstormed last night and we were albe to sit on the porch rocking chairs and listen to the rain. We came in from LA so this has been incredibly relaxing compared to what we're used to.
Also, anyone who stays here must take advantage of the Jaccuzzi! We hope to be back for another romantic get-away at some point."

"I have stayed in many cabins in my day, but this is by far the best. In fact, the word 'cabin' seems too pedestrian for this lovely, well-appointed haven of happiness. The location and view are perfect, and I could sit in one of these
rocking chairs forever. I have been fantasizing about a place exactly like this for decades and now I know what I want: this! So this is my new plan - get a Bobcat Bungalow of my own.
I've never been happier or more at peace than here - it just feels right. The spirit of these mountains has steeped into my bones and soul.
I love Floyd - came for the music and discovered the best kept secret of this area. Food's not bad, either! The jam was incredible; in fact, we couldn't control ourselves and ate it all so we have none to take home with us. The only downside: we have to leave tomorrow. However, we'll be back. Thanks for everything."

:Our stay was just wonderful! Don't need to say any more..."
April 5, 2013
"We could have not asked for a better treat! We could stay here
forever. All you need is here, peace, quiet, comfort, fresh air,
nature at it's best, four rocking chairs looking out to the best
view ever, a warm fireplace, and even a little snow on April 4th
to top it off! Thank you!"
March 26, 2013
"I have been searching for a little piece of heaven on earth and
I finally found it here at Bobcat Bungalow! Thank you so much
for this needed get-away from it all. The peace and serenity -
the beauty, I will keep in memory forever - Can't wait to come
March 25, 2013
"Needed a vacation from work with some R & R...Found it here at
the Bobcat! :-) I will be back as this was better than I could
have imagined. The hosts were so nice and this town is just so
quaint and full of nice people. Great views, fresh air...wow!
Be back soon!:-) Thanks again."
March 14 - 17, 2013
"We bought tickets to Chateau Morrisette's 'Murder Myster Dinner
Theatre' and decided to make it a 'weekend' get-away. We found
these cabins on line and made reservations based on the reviews
and pictures. The Bobcat Cabin exceeded our expectations. We live
in a log house in south central Virginia so we love the rustic
yet superb features to this rental cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed
our stay and we will be back soon."

March 10, 2013
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for a lovely (and much needed) night away. The cabin is beautiful, the views are spectacular, and the wagon is really fun to ride down the hill (theoretically, of course). You
seem to have thought of everything to make this place special, and we really appreciated all the extra touches. We hope to be back soon!"

October 28, 2012
"On our first night here, our 4-year-old son excitedly proclaimed,
"This is the best vacation ever!" The rest of the family whole-heartedly
agrees. We are here celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary with
our two boys (ages 4 years and 18 months). I ca't imagine a more
perfect place to get away to, to celebrate our family. We loved
hiking the trails and found this beautiful cabin to have everything
we needed. What a treat to have nothing to do but to relax, laugh,
and enjoy our time together in such a gorgeous setting. We are
looking forward to many, many return visits. Thank you so very
much for sharing this with us."
Chapel Hill, NC

"Our second stay. This time with our two boys and our two dogs. Had a terrific time! The dogs walked with us on our hike. Leaves were beautiful!! Had a great
pizza in Floyd, breakfast at Maybry Mill, and a dinner here in the cabin. No TV, No car noise, just the wind. We will be back again!"

"6 friends from 6 different places sojourned from across the country
to rendezvous for a boys reunion. From CA, NJ, MS, Richmond, VA,
Lynchburg, VA, and Roanoke, VA, all made the trek to this oasis.
We all met at Liberty Univ. in 2003 and since then this group,
and many others who couldn't make it, have created many a memory
via camping trips, road trips, and all sorts of shenanigans. It's
been four years since we have all been together again like this.
Rendezvous in the past have typically taken place in the woods
of VA at some secluded spot where boys could be boys; harvesting
wood, making fires, pitching tents, exploring the land, building
fishwheels and lean-tos, and falling asleep to the sound of a
babbling brook. So a cabin was new to us and it DID NOT disappoint!
As we rolled up to the cabin we were all smiling like it was Christmas
morning. A heavenly light beamed down upon the cabin and I'm pretty
sure I could hear the sound of a heavenly host of angels singing
as we gazed upon what would be our shelter and refuge from the
monotony of daily living. Once the cabin was occupied what followed
was STRAAIIIGT FELLOWSHIP! Trips down memory lane were followed
by non-stop laughter, tears were shed (from the laughter), cheeks
hurt, and we've all developed 6-pack abs after all the laughing.
There were no kids or girls here, it was boys night. So we had
our bonfire, we drank (modestly) and smoked cigarettes (modestly)
and went for a woods-walk, cooked some brats, and played 'Mario-cart'.
Every one of us was impressed with the beauty of the cabin and
God's creation that encompassed us. Everything we needed was here,
even firewood! The sky was magical and we eventually went to sleep
with all the windows open, listening to nature as cool breezes
of happiness put us to sleep. Thank you!"

"Thank you for sharing this with us. Our journey here took us from Afghanistan and the tranquility was wonderful. Much needed."
Sept. 3, 2012
"This is a perfect place to enjoy a 20th anniversary. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy the cabin. Nice and private."
Aug. 19, 2012
"Thank you for a lovely weekend. Our stay in the Bobcat cabin was great and we enjoyed the hiking trails. Wine tasting and dinner at the Chateau Morrisette was also excellent."
Aug. 5, 2012
"The Bobcat cabin was lovely and relaxing. A nice spot to get
away from it all and relax. The surroundings were beautiful. Thank
you for the blackberry preserves - excellent."
July 25, 2012
"Oh what relaxing fun we had! We have stayed in some cabins before,
BUT NOTHING like yours! The old wood interior, the porch, rocking
chairs, etc. were so charming. And that you built "Bobcat" yourselves
simply added frosting to the cake. And the weather! Wow- how do
you do it? Pleasant days with nice breezes to keep all comfortable
day and night!!! Finally, but not least, we so enjoyed FloydFest.
Our first 'out in the country' music festival. The nicest people
by the 1000s we've ever been around. Between the Feistival and
the shops/stores in Floyd we met the neatest fan people over and
over. Almost got on a first-name basis with the ladies in Floyd
hardware store at "The Traffic Light". Because of them and all
the important items (practical, unique, interesting, unusual,
etc.) they carry, each trip was almost like going to a toy store
at Christmas time. Whether in eateries, shops, grocery stores,
gas stations, small convenience stores, etc., everyone was nice
and so helpful.
Back to FloydFest. The people were as great as the music! For
example in the very crowded Pink Floyd "Beer Garden Stage" area,
very crowded on Sat., a couple were leaving for a while. They
came over where we were sitting on rocks around a pool and asked
if we would like to sit in their chairs while they were visiting
elsewhere!!! Who ever heard of such a thing from total strangers?
And the Music - wonderful! We came mainly with our daughter and
son-in-law to hear Brandi Carlile --she is more awesome live than
on her cds. She made everyone feel like she was having such a
great time at her first FloydFest. All four of us 'danced in the
pit' for over a half hour to HaHa Tonka at the Beer Garden stage
under the shade of the great trees (never done that). The bluegrass
bands at the VA Folklife Workshop Porch were really great - and
we were up-close and personal with them. The Drew Emmitt Band
and also Drew with Leftover Salmon (what a name) were wonderful!
Sara Watkins at the main stage was so good and fun with her energetic
fiddle work and great voice. Wayne Henderson at the Workshop Porch
was also great. Good music, fun stories, up-close quality entertainment,
and the nicest people everywhere. We'll be back!"
July 1, 2012
After a 100 degree day we arrived at Bobcat by 7, a good six hours
in the car, Chambersburg to Indian Valley. The 'prince-ly' cabin
greeted us with a cool shower with ammenities to prep our pre-prepared
dinner. "Oh Annie..." I says..."look at the bank of clouds
flanking the sunset".... After our toast, and first bite, Pow!!
Thwack, Zip, Zap and the power of the wind...slamming over our
roof. We easily found the flashlights provided, lit up our votives
and enjoyed the storm with the lights out!! Now that's romantic...little
did we realize 'til morning, as we met up with other wedding guests,
that a tornado touched down in Roanoke, and pulled down three
posts of the circus-sized tent set up for the reception at the
The Pelusos provided water, a shower at their generator fed home...and
we proceeded to have a grand Venezuelan/Virginia wedding!
May your stay be as memorable, and may you find an arrowhead nearby!"
June 24, 2012
"We had a great time! Cabin was well stocked, we had a quiet breakfast with local foods. The stars were fabulous. As we are from northern Virginia, the peace and quiet were a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle we live in. The hike
gave us a good cardio workout, (lots of hills!). We are ready to see some more wineries! We will be back."
June 16, 2012
"What a wonderful place to immerse yourself in nature and indulge in a little luxury at the same time. Thank you so much for sreating this very special place, with so many thoughtful touches! I can't wait to visit again, and next time try out the trails."
Rocky Mount, NC

"This was our first trip to these cabins and we had the time of
our lives! This is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy company.
We went to the winery on Saturday and had a great time. Thank
you for the wood, we had a fire both nights and sat out by the
firepit and laughed until we hurt. We have had such a great time
and want to thank you for sharing your cabin with us. Lastly...what
happens in Floyd.....stays in Floyd! We will be back soon! P.S.
The jam was great!"

"Our third trip to "The Bobcat" and another perfect visit for
the entire pack. Gemma flushed out a deer Saturday on our mini-hike
and chased for quite a while. On the morning of our departure
we heard an odd bird calling. It sounded like a monkey, then I
saw a huge (crow-sized) bird fly near the front door porch. It
was a pileated woodpecker!! It was so much bigger than any other
woodpecker either of us have ever seen! We are hoping to spy it
again on our next visit. We will need to some back for a summer
visit, then we will have experienced "The Bobcat" during each
season. How fortunate for us. Thank you. We are so grateful for
your hospitality and friendship. Until our next visit - keep well."

to collect my thoughts before returning home. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy the peace and quiet of your cabin and it will be a part of our memories. Hope we can come back again soon. P.S. Thank you so much for the jam, we always enjoy it."

"Where to begin!? What a perfect location to celebrate my husband's
50th trip around the sun. The cabins are more lovely and beautiful
than the photos on the website can convey. This is the first time
we've arrived and found the property better in person than in
the photos. This is truly 'luxury in the woods'. We cannot thank
you enough for sharing this most amazing, rejuvenating, quiet,
soul filling of places. This was our first visit to the area/cabin
but most definitely not our last. Being able to fring the whole
family (dogs included) makes this the most wonderful of locations."
October 19-25, 2011
"This is the perfect spot to show our family from Idaho the beauty of Virginia. Our stay here has been delightful, the cabin is great and the scenery is spectacular!

"This was our second Easter in this cabin, third visit. As always
love the view and seclusion of the cabin. The kids found an Easter
egg (plastic) that we had hidden the year before and was unable
to find. We have decided to hide another with a dollar to see
if someone else's child finds it, if so leave us a message that
it was found and place back into the same place, for we shall
be back next year for Easter. (Hint) Check beside the cabin toward
the field that is where we found it this year. We had beautiful
weather as always love watching the sunrise from the porch, so
peaceful. The kids and I were able to pet one of the horses this
year. Can't wait until next year to come back."

our relaxing stay so much and plan on coming back many more times.
You have decorated this cabin so it feels like we are at home
but away from all the stresses and responsibilities. It was good
to breathe in the mountain air while hiking on your trails. I
had fun cooking and baking and we loved watching movies by the
wood stove. You both were very sweet and very hospitable. We plan
on telling our friends all about these beautiful cabins. See you
again. PS the jam was delicious! Thank you!"

porch and enjoyed relaxing in the rocking chairs, taking in the
scenery, and listening to nature. Last night we went to Chateau
Morrisette for Movie on the Lawn! It was a little chilly, but
we bundled up in a blanket and enjoyed some wine while watching
"Rear Window" It was perfect! We hate we can't stay any longer,
but we hope to be back as soon as we can! Can't wait to try the
jam at home - it looks yummy and from reading past entries we
know it's going to be! Thank you again."
August 31-September 4, 2010
"We had a fantastic time here! We had a rough start with the luggage
being lost for two days, but you were so gracious! From waiting
up for us to check in late to directing the airport delivery people
to the right place, you were incredibly kind and understanding.
We spent many hours on the porch looking out at the gorgeous view
and waking up in the sunshine each morning was just wonderful.
My mother-in-law and sister-in-law joined us for the last day
and night and they both raved about the lovely cabin and how comfortable
it is. We will treasure our memories of the starry nights, golden
hazy mornings and serene, fragrant hikes. Thank you so much for
the amazing relaxing time we had! Very best wishes."

Indian Creek and the Bobcat Bungalow. We loved the jam!"
June 4 - 6, 2010
"What a fabulous welcome to Virginia! We are in the process of relocating to Roanoke and needed a few days respite from the chaos of moving.
Plus I wanted to turn 50 somewhere peaceful w/ natural beauty and your cabin couldn't have been more perfect a spot. Thank you for the extra finishing touches that make your place more comfortable than most.
We'll look forward to future visits during the other seasons!"

"We had only been in the cabin for about 30 seconds when my bride
decided she wanted to return next year! The pictures online do
not do the Bungalow justice; it was like spending time inside
a cedar chest - with a wood stove and a jacuzzi! We would recommend
it to anyone. With much appreciation,"
Oct. 30- Nov. 1, 2009
"Another great weekend. We had intended to go to the parkway and
leaf-peep but it rained all weekend, which was fine with us. We
stayed in and played board games and relaxed in front of the fire.
Our dog had a good time as well, we bought him a huge bone at
Food Lion. So big our German Shepard couldn't hold it in his mouth
for long. He chewed on that all weekend and patrolled around the
cabin. Awesome time." Newport, VA

"We first visited when I came to pick up a pair of your fabulous
microphones. For those of you not involved in audio, Peluso makes
world class microphones for the professional recording industry.
Peluso is well known, as are the microphones, to be a stickler
for delivering high quality at an affordable price. The same goes
for the cabins. We visit Mountain Lake every year because of the
cabin quality and the nature we can't enjoy in Richmond. From
here on we'll be visiting Indian Creek Cabins as least once a
year.""We have really enjoyed our stay in Bobcat Bungalow these
last two days. It was great to get away from home and enjoy such
a beautiful and relaxing place. The cabin is beautiful and you
have furnished it so cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the wood
stove last night and a steak dinner on the grill. We had a good
nights sleep, the bed was so comfortable. We are looking forward
to coming back again. We are going to have my adult kids come
from Roanoke and enjoy the cabin and trails also. Thank you so
much for the blackberry jam. We will enjoy it at home. Thanks
for your kindness."

"Thank you for letting us stay in your cabin this weekend. You've
given us a beautiful place to stay this week while moving our
daughter into her apartment in Blacksburg to start her sophmore
year at Virginia Tech. Staying at the cabin was so much more peaceful
and beautiful than being stuck in a hotel for days. We love going
camping so this place was perfect for us. The view at night watching
the stars and we even got to see a few shooting stars and the
Milky Way one evening was breathtaking. Thank you for letting
us use your phone when my cell phone died and for providing us
with a place for our trailer to be parked. You've done a great
job with providing all the necessities for the kitchen. Can't
wait to come back soon. This will be our place to stay when we
visit our daughter."
August 11, 2009
"Thank you for wonderful time at your beautiful Bobcat Bungalow.
After losing our little angel to tragedy this year, a quiet, peaceful
few days was a blessing. It was wonderful to watch the children
run and play. As a family we really needed this level of quiet
and disconnent from the hussle of the world. While everyone sleeps,
the view and sunrise from the rocking chairs on the porch makes
the most peaceful place to praise the Lord and count your many
blessings. I have found where I need to go when I need a break
to take a much closer walk with the Lord. Thank you for your kindness,
and your preserves. I can't wait to return and curl up with a
book, a warm fire, and pot of soup. I am so blessed to have found
you and your wonderful cabin. I feel rested and ready to return
to life as we knew it. We will tell everyone they must spend some
time in this very beautiful part of Va and must stay here and
feel what it is like to not hear cars, trains, tvs, phones, computers,
fax machines, golf carts, and neighbors lawn mowers at 7 am."
Moncks Corner, SC
July 23 - 26, 2009
"We truly enjoyed our stay here at Bobcat Cungalow and hope to
come back some time when we aren't running back and forth from
Floydfest. The sunrise was incredibly beautiful, the accomodations
perfectly relaxing, and the wildlife stunning. We counted five
foxes in one day, along with plenty of deer, oppossoms and a weasel.
What a welcome and much needed change! Thank you for sharing your
piece of appalacian soliture with the world. Bless you.!"
July 20 - 23, 2009
"Thank you so much for profiding us with your cabin! Everything
was just perfect! The kiddies especiallly enjoyed the bath tub.
Our little one and the fireplace didn't play so nice resulting
in a blistered index finger :-( Needless to say, fireplace 1,
Little One 0. The trails were great - look for a nice place to
recharge *hint: it's blue*. Outside fire pit was killer until
the showers came. We cooked everything from steaks to ribs, corn
on the cob, buttered zucchini and squash on the grill. Overall,
what a fantastic getaway from pharmacy and Petsmart. Lastly, highly
recommend getting up for the sunrise - what a view! Thanks again
and see you next year!"
July 11 - 19, 2009
"Sorry we didn't get to visit with you this trip. We thoroughly
enjoyed our stay. The weather was incredible! We walked your trails,
(ate some blackberries along the way - we always take our blackberry
preserves home to help us 'flashback' to our wonderful time here.
) Thank you for the marvelous hospitality. Your cabins are truly
unique places to excape. You are so very kind to provide such
a memorable place. Our house plans are coming along and we hope
to solve the pine tree trouble this year. (They have gotten so
big so quickly!) We'd like to return over Christmas break. We'll
be in touch."
July 9 - 10, 2009
"We so enjoyed staying at the Bobcat, and will highly recommend
your place to everyone we know. Your place is awesome, and facilitates
the kind of serenity we were looking for. The view was awesome
and basking in the breeze on the porch was heavenly. You've done
a great job and you're so kind. "
July 2 - 6, 2009
"Thank you for letting us stay in your cabin for our anniversary
weekend. The cabin is beautiful, the view incredible and the peace
and quiet priceless. Only one problem you maqe it harder to go
back to the lives we don't want to be living. We want to homestead.
(someday I hope) The grilll was great, I cooked baby back ribs
and I think the dog enjoyed it more than we did." Newport, VA
June 30, 2009
"The Bobcat Bungalow was our 'home away from home' for five wonderful
nights. We travelled from California for two special events. A
beautiful wedding for our niece and a family reunion. The cabin
provided everything we needed and we were able to sneak in a hike
between all the activity. The sunrises were spectacular, the evening
breezes were cooling and the views were amazing. With all the
running back and forth, the cabin provided a calming retreat.
Thank for building a beautiful cabin!!"

"What a wonderful place to celebrate our daughter's graduation from VA Tech. The family could get together,
relax, grill out and then go hiking on your trails. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. We have stayed in Cougar Ridge Cottage years ago and
we enjoyed this one just as much. Our son could just walk the trails forever, but he is 12 so he never gets tired. Our 21-year-old had no cell phone service and no internet - he had plenty of family bonding time. Papa told Nana they need to spend a week here.
And our graduate was thrilled everyone could be here, now she has to concentrate on getting a job and begin her journey in life."
May 10, 2009
"Wow Mom, you really outdid yourselves with this cabin! Happy

can't wait to come back and swim in the tub for real!' Thank you

hospitality! We really enjoyed the cozy, rustic decor and amenities

February 22, 2009
"Thanks for providing such a great getaway. We had a relaxing
retreat from the "real world". No TV, no phones, no problem. :-)
Our dog loved the trails and all the new smells outside. The cozy

we loved being able to take a walk and explore. We will definitely
be coming back now that we know there is such a great place to

"Thanks for a great visit, as always everything was perfect. We have stayed here for three anniversaries, and we just love it. It is so nice to get away from all the hustle and bustle
of life. Also I love to see my wife of 15 year's face when we get here. Thanks for all your work and preparation to keep these cabins near perfect." Roanoke, VA

"We can't think of a finer place to celebrate the end of a year/beginning of the next. Your beautiful bungalow affords your guests comfort and privacy.
No traffic, no schedules, the luxury of time in a beautiful setting. You've thought of everything! Once again our sincerest thanks."
November 26 - 30, 2008
"What a great place to escape the hectic pace we endure week after
week. By far, we enjoyed the best Thanksgiving holiday - ever!
We relaxed by the fire while our entree slowly cooked atop the
oven. We watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from beginning
to end and spent the entire day in our pajamas - now that is relaxing!!
The Bobcat Bungalow has it all: privacy, quiet, comfort, coziness,
and beautiful scenery, including picturesque sunrises and sunsets!
I stirred up 4 white-tail deer this morning while walking along
the tree-line between the cabin and the wheat field just beyond
the outside fire pit. It was quite a sight as I watched them run
and jump across the field and into the woods. Thanks to John and
Mary for providing such a wonderful venue for so many to stay
and enjoy. We will be sure to tell our firends all about it as
they view all of the pictures we took during our stay. We shall

We only stayed one night but the peace and quiet were simply incredible! The view of the fall colors was breathtaking! We will definitely plan another visit to this lovely cabin and stay longer for
some R & R. Thank you for sharing your place with us! Thanks y'all from the low country of South Carolina."

"Rained all 3 days and we didn't even mind. The cabin and setting is wonderful. Enjoyed the fireplace every day - even better than T.V.
Worked on puzzles and even managed a Galax to Foster Falls bike ride (in the rain - but who cares!) The jacuzzi was the best, especially with unlimited hot water to
fill it (we've rented other cabins where we couldn't even begin to use theirs) Had a great time and would definitely come again. We were actually thankful for the bad weather
because it forced us to stay in more and really enjoy your wonderful cabin. Thanks again."
Sept. 14, 2008
"We thoroughly enjoyed the beauty and peace of the cabin. It was a wonderful respite from the hustle and
bustle of working life. We both covet the beautiful place you have and thank you for the oopportunity to borrow it for a while."
Aug. 23 - 24, 2008
"This 'cabin' definitely exceeded my expectations. I didn't expect
to find a 'cabin' in rural VA that can best be described as upscale.
My towels at home aren't this fluffy and soft. The almost absolute
silence (the bugs are pretty noisy) was great. And being able
to view the stars without city lights was a treat. I only wish
the trails weren't quite so steep, but a nice jacuzzi bath kept
be from being sore the next day! Thanks for the experience, I
hope to have an opportunity to return at a future date."
Aug. 15 - 17, 2008
"We had a reallly nice weekend and enjoyed our stay at the Bobcat.
Friday night at the Floyd Country Store is always a memorable
evening. We hiked to the top of Buffalo Mountain and the views
are well worth the effort. With a daughter at Roanoke College
and VA Tech football (Go Hokies!) nearby, we hope to return to
the Bobcat Cabin soon."
August 1 - 3, 2008
"Everything that is the Bobcat Bungalow is exactly what we needed to put our minds and souls where they should be. Your hospitality, the scenery and the comfort
that you have created is unbelievable. Here, this weekend, we celebrated J's birthday and she was blown away to speechless the entire time - thank you so much!
We will be back!"
July 12 - 19, 2008
It is always so hard to leave. There's so much to miss and remember. (Thank goodness for memory.)
We loved every minute of our stay. This year we walked your lovely trails and even looked for arrowheads. We had family visitors who marveled at the luxury
inside this cabin - (The terrific beds, fluffy towels, well-equipped kitchen.)
We did more exploring in Floyd and even had meat-loaf sandwiches at the Blue Ridge Restaurant. The General Store looks great with all the new trappings.
Thanks again for the gracious hospitality evident in every thoughtful aspect of your cabin."

your young people, you are all so warm and gracious - God's blessings

family reunion. We had a blast!"

"Perfection! A piece of heaven on earth! Indescribable! We absolutely
loved our stay at the Bobcat Bungalow! The porch and peaceful
spring evenings were our favorite. The starry nights with only
sounds of nature were very relaxing and exactly what we needed.
The Jacuzzi tub was very nice after the long hike at Rock Castle
Gorge. Everything is very nice and top of the line. Makes you
feel right at home! This is such a wonderful place and more than
we dreamed of. We will be back! A Memorial Day tradition??"

"Our family found the perfect place to help celebrate our daughter's graduation from Virginia Tech. We saw wonderful sunrises each day,
as we rose to attend an event on campus. Each afternoon and evening we returned to this beautifully appointed "cabin" to have lunch and dinner and take lovely walks.
By Saturday, we sat on the porch and took in the views of the glorious mountains.
The quiet was a reprieve from our busy days and gave us time to rest and reflect.
The kitchen, dining, and living room were very comfortable for our visiting family and gave us the great space to spread out and relax. Though five of us stayed, our daughter, her boyfriend and our son came for dinner on Saturday and we easily had supper around the table just like at home!
The barbeque allowed us to create incredible salmon, skirt steak, and marvelous roasted veggies. Where other guests saw birds of all types, we ate foods of all kinds. The kitchen and grill were well stocked and we loved the
blackberry jam, which we all agreed was the best we have ever tasted. Thank you so much for the tasty treat!
The walk was great and gave us the much needed exercise from a long ride each day.
We took the Cougar loop and then headed to the pasture to visit with the horses, sheep, cows, and llamas. We spotted "tree mushrooms" and many blackberry bushes.
We all have wonderful memories of the graduation and our fabulous stay at the Bobcat Bungalow. This is a rare find that was such a pleasant surprise! Thanks!!!"

"We are back once again. In '03 we stayed at the Cougar Ridge
Cabin and loved it. When our 15th wedding anniversary came we
wanted a quiet getaway and so we thought of the Indian Creek Cabins.
The Bobcat Bungalow was a wonderful place to stay to celebrate
our anniversary. My husband and I really enjoyed each other. The
cabin in the woods was so peaceful even though the winds howled
all night. On Sunday morning we awoke to a beautiful sunrise.
We relaxed together all day Sunday and enjoyed each others company
and we really hated to have to leave but we do plan to return
one day. The owners are really great and thanks for the blackberry
jam. It's a great place to stay."

"Once again our stay has been delightful. The colors of the mountains
were just what we hoped for. We visited Floyd this time around
and found it to be such a quaint little village. We enjoyed part
of our Saturday there. As always, your jam was outstanding. Many
thanks; also the trails were fun and gave us plenty of exercise.
We hope to visit a few times in the coming year. The porch is
by far our very favorite place to relax and connect once again
with our souls."Burlington, NC

"Floyd, Va has been a magical place to me since I first 'discovered'
it about 10 years ago when my sister moved here. Now that she
has moved away, I wanted to re-experience it's beauty and musical
charms on my own. Your perfect cabin makes my dream of coming
back to Floyd every October (at least) an exciting and relaxing
reality! My husband and family can now experience this magical
place with me in peace and comfort year after year. A new family
tradition is born! What a sanctuary you have created in what is
already one of my favorite places on earth. Thank you, thank you."
"Arriving late Friday night, we enjoyed the wood stove and a very quiet night. Saturday, we ate our way thru Floyd Co. from Blue Ridge Restaurant to
the Bread Box. We returned at 4 p.m. to enjoy the porch, then moved to the outdoor fire ring for sunset and an evening of stars. The cottage is cozy with individually zoned rooms and we loved the east bedroom for warm, cozy sunrises.
We plan to book today for this time next year."

"Although we live by the beach, our hearts remain in the mountains. My husband and I had no idea what we were getting into as we found
ourselves on the front porch of the Bobcat Bungalow with the breathtaking view. Needless to say, we found the rest we were in need of,
a romantic place to enjoy our one year anniversary, and a place to come home to when we long for the mountains again. See you again soon! *Bring water on the trails!
Get ready for a great workout :-)*"

"What a shame that we were only able to stay here one night...
We enjoyed the beautiful view and the relaxing Jacuzzi while we
could. After a week of vacationing with fourteen family members,
a nice quiet night here was exactly what we needed. No TV, no
kids, no messes to clean up. Just peace and quiet. We are already
planning on who to bring with us the next time that we visit (hopefully
this fall). This is a great place to work on my novel while still
spending time with favorite friends and family. Hope to be back

We hope to come back again soon.

"Arriving on Fri was like stepping into Heaven. The temperatures
during the day were in the mid-70s and in the low 50s over night.
We walked the trails (watch out for the Bobcat Loop, it's a killer),
picked ripe blackberries for pancakes and ate them as we picked
them (which tasted like blessed warm sweet sunshine). Sunset is
an incredible experience! Watching the world settle in and pull
a nice comfy blanket over itself until sunrise, when the Blue
Ridge Mountains show themselves through the mist. The cabin, after
running around the countryside and shopping in Floyd, was like
"comin' home". The Bobcat Cottage definitely allows one to completely
escape and relax."

We also got really good pizza from Dennys. We have a campfire outside every night. To top it all off we went to the Pine Tavern to eat dinner, it was delicious.
Can't wait to come back."

for anything more as far as accommodations. We will hopefully
be returning to see this beautiful place again.

secluded cabin feel like a private mansion in the country. The much needed time away gave us a calm, quiet sense of clarity."

Your keen creativity is so much a part of the pleasure of being here. Thank you - we wish we could stay."

A secret to be kept
We whispered to each other
Moments before we slept
Loopy trails and foggy mist
In the early morn, 'twas dew kissed
Every detail thought through and through
Fans on the porch, a breathtaking view
And who knew....silence could awaken
For miles and miles, ours for the taking
Magical place - we hate to go
Rest assured - we'll return
Before the year's next snow"

in Floyd at night. The cabin is beautiful, certainly the most
luxurious "cabin" we've experienced. We particularly enjoyed the

We loved walking the trails with plentiful rhododendron, mountain laurel and all the lovely mountain plants. You have a wonderful place here. Our dog loved being able to stay too - and hiking all over the woods.
This is a dog paradise. Hope we can come back soon."

but the woodstove kept us cozy and warm. We loved waking up to
the snow showers Saturday morning. The Bobcat Bungalow is decorated
so beautifully. We had such a great time we hate to leave. It
was just the getaway we so desperately needed. We hope to come
back in the future. Thank you so much."

"Bobcat Bungalow was a beautiful place to stay on a chilly evening
in March! Everything in the cabin was topnotch, from the wood
floors, to the beautiful curtains, to the dishes in the cabinet.
Aside from a beautiful house in a beautiful setting, the amenities
included were wonderful. Our pup enjoyed the cabin as much as
we did and having a house where pets are welcome is something
you don't find much anymore. He appreciates it as much as we do!
Thank you for making us feel at home! You will be seeing us again
in the future.
Thanks for everything.
March 2-4, 2007
"This is our second visit to Bobcat and each time proves to be more special. We both live such busy lives, with work, kids and other responsibilities, that we need to "make-time" to stop the clock!
This beautiful mountain and this cottage always serve that we will leave relaxed. We don't know a better place where we can sit for hours and listen to the wind furiously bring the front in, and be so entertained!
Where else can you sit in town at (Odd Fellas) and enjoy a great meal, wonderful music and meet people who really have time to get to know you!
This morning, Sunday, we awoke to discover a fresh layer of snow - it was amazing. It then made sense that the previous day's wind was busy bringing us a wonderful good-bye gift - (snow).
One of our favorite past-times while staying here is to "bundle up" and sit on the porch at night and listen to the silence. You will find a quiet place in your soul very quickly - please try it and let us know if it works for you too.
We believe that we have found a special place and look forward to returning in July for Floyd Fest."
Feb. 25, 2007
"We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday here at your Bobcat Bungalow. It was everything we expected and more.
It was great to escape everyday responsibilities and yet still have all the conveniences of home. Thank you for the blackberry jam
and your warm hospitality that made our stay so special. Hope to see you again real soon!
"Every Presidents Day weekend we travel to a secluded spot for
a quiet rejuvenation. It is hard to beat Indian Valley and Bobcat
Bungalow. We just loved the wind, the snow flurries, and the warm
wood stove. The accommodations here are first rate, so much better
than where we have stayed in the past. We'll come again."

"What a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city!
This charming cabin proved to be the perfect medicine for two stressed-out parents after the holidays (
without the kids - of course!)
Sitting on the porch last night all bundled up, listening to the serene silence
was an incredible blessing. It was truly a magical experience. When was the last time you heard nothing? Amazing!!
Thanks for your incredible hospitality. We will be back!"

"Thank you for offering such a beautiful view and warm and welcoming accommodations here at
Bobcat Bungalow. We had very cold weather, but the wood stove kept us nice and toasty
the whole night. We enjoyed bundling up and rocking on the rocking chairs,
taking in the beautiful mountain view and rolling hills. What a wonderful discovery when we traveled into the town of Floyd
and found great restaurants (we recommend Odd Fellas) and amazing
works by local artists. The cabin is beautifully designed and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend stay.
We look forward to visiting again and truly appreciate the delicious blackberry jam."
"What a treat to be the first to stay at Bobcat Bungalow!
Everything is perfect - the view, the rooms, the whirlpool tub and all the little luxuries, including John's bread and Mary's jam.
The weather has been warm and wonderful too. We're looking forward to coming again in July. Bobcat is a beautifully designed house in a wonderful location with tremendous views and great walks."
