New River Valley Happenings

Virginia Tech has a Spring Football Game this weekend.  We still have some rooms available!  Besides enjoying the game you can come back and enjoy all of our new lambs!
There's lots going on as we head into May.  Hahn Horticulture Center at VT is offering a spring wild flower walk on Saturday(www.hort.vt.edu/hhg). Downtown Blacksburg hosts "1st Fridays" every month which include the Blacksburg Farmer's Market, events at The Lyric Theater, Art displays, music, eateries!  Fun for all!

Relax at The Huffman House after attending events in town.  Savor the gourmet breakfasts and take a tour of the farm.

Spring has Sprung

Our own farm at the Huffman House has produced ten spring lambs!  They were all born during snow storms, but are now romping and jumping about in the paddock between the B&B and the barn.  Many calves were born this past week.

Appalachian Trail near Huffman House at Creekside Farm

The Huffman House is located 1/2 mile from the AT crossing on Rte 42 in the Sinking Creek Valley.  Many thru-hikers have already started out from Georgia on their trek north to Maine.  Ron & Carol, owners of The Huffman House, thru-hiked the trail in 1999! Hard to believe it was 11 years ago on April 1.  Seems like only yesterday!  We provide accommodations and shuttles for many section hikers as well as thru-hikers.  Stop in, relax, have a hot shower and a gourmet breakfast!
